A student who is exiled, his teacher is exiled with him.” Therefore when the lower doesn’t see any greatness in the upper, the lower doesn’t even have smallness.
Thus the lower first has to believe that there is an upper in reality, and that he doesn’t feel the upper because the lower doesn’t see the greatness of the upper.
Therefore, when a person begins to observe that the greatness of the upper, which is called that the AHP of the upper, ascends, the lower also ascends and begins to attain the feeling of Godliness.
A person has to constantly feel and imagine that he is in AHP of the upper. A person’s height is measured according to the connection between the lower level and the upper. We don’t feel the presence of the upper level at all, as if we are all alone in the world. This is called unconscious existence without any spiritual recognition, without the recognition of the upper.
We are in the upper, but we don’t know or feel it. Therefore, we have to make different efforts in order to feel the upper level. We have to be incorporated in it at least as a black point, which in the meantime has no feeling but makes an effort by trying to feel the upper.
The main thing is to make an effort. The problem is that we are waiting for the revelation to come from Above. But how can it come from Above if all of creation has intentionally descended and spread from the top down through different levels so that we will have an opportunity to exert ourselves.
We, however, wait for the Creator to exert Himself instead. This cannot be! Thus we are prolonging the time by waiting for something that will not happen. Days and years go by until in the slowest human pace of natural evolution all the Reshimot (reminiscences) we have to correct accumulate and operate on us in the form of blows and troubles, and then we finally wake up.
But this is already the ordinary, natural way, in its time (the path of suffering), whereas I will hasten it (the path of the Light) means that we look for and try to locate the AHP of the upper we are in by ourselves.
