Question: Humanity in its development and attempt to speed things up has cut down quite a few trees. If in my participating in a group and trying to carry out the Kabbalistic method I don’t understand the concrete laws of nature and cannot weigh how my actions will manifest, how can I make correct actions so I won’t make matters worse?
Answer: Everything is much simpler. If it is for the good of the group, then your movements are considered to be positive. If not, then our movements are considered to be negative, and so they require correction. So it is necessary to “give it to you on the head,” so you will understand that you have been acting incorrectly until you learn to act in accordance with the group.
All the rest of humanity is simply managed from above, they have no freedom of choice. And your freedom of choice lies in directing your actions consciously towards the good of the group.
So it is necessary for there to be a precise scrutiny at every moment, not to miss even a second of life and to constantly adjust myself precisely: “I am either there or here”; you understand that freedom of choice is only given for this and that is how it is realized. If you realize it, you are said to be alive. If not, it means that you only exist.
