All connections that lead to the wrong contact between the lower level and the upper level are forbidden by the Torah because they cut off the ladder of ascent.
The Reshimot (reminiscences) should rise along the same chain that they descended from the world of Ein Sof through all the worlds into our world. Therefore we cannot do anything with nature except carefully follow the limitations we were given.
So, why is it unclear which Reshimo we can use and which we cannot? This is done purposefully so I clarify the most correct actions despite my impulses, thoughts, and desires.
On the other hand, the wrong actions help me penetrate more deeply into the system and see why everything is built the way it is. Therefore, this confusion is necessary in order for us to organize our brain and see how everything is internally arranged. This provides us with the depth of the attainment.
The chain that leads to the world of Ein Sof is very accurate and rigid. You can ascend only according to the same chain by which all your spiritual genetic data descended. Therefore whatever doesn’t give birth to the next level isn’t simply cut off, but is first studied and explored.
This is essential in order to attain the internal mechanism of the system. Without it, you would be an angel, that is, an animal that is led by nature and instinctively performs only the right actions.
But when there are a great number of options and you think about what is allowed and what is forbidden, by delving into the temptations and the difficulties and thus choosing the right thoughts and intentions, the attainment of the deep, boundless, system called the Creator is revealed within you.
It is adapted to you and you become its owner. It is just like an embryo, a human being, that develops from one genetic bud. The same thing happens here.
You actually have only one small point that can be turned in any direction since it has no direction of its own. But when you begin to work according to the instructions given by the Torah and explore where, what, and how, you begin to see the connection of your point in the heart with the whole immense system. Eventually it becomes the basis of this system.
Either way, you have to go through all these paths and explore them. They will be given to you from Above according to the root of your soul, according to the general Reshimo that is hidden within you, no matter what. We all have to go through this, each according to his own style, in his own way. Otherwise you will not become the owner of the system.
Comment: But all the so-called sins in our world occur as a consequence of the spiritual roots, like the union of two men or incest, etc.
Answer: It is the result of the shattering of the system that had to descend that way on purpose, be destroyed and become fully revealed to us so that we will begin to put it together again and ascend.
The Torah, “Leviticus,” 20:22: And you shall observe all My statutes and all My ordinances, and fulfill them, then the Land, to which I am bringing you to dwell therein, will not vomit you out. This is the condition upon which it is possible to enter the land of Israel, where everything is clean and there are no prohibitions. Then you are on a level when all these laws become natural laws for you and you don’t break them because you actually don’t feel that it is possible to keep them or to break them. This option no longer exists.
