The Torah, “Leviticus,” 26:6 – 26:8: And I will grant peace in the Land, and you will lie down with no one to frighten [you]; I will remove wild beasts from the Land, and no army will pass through your land; You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you; Five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you will pursue ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you.
The enemies are different uncorrected desires that suddenly emerge in a person and are revealed inside him. There are no other enemies but our internal attributes, but they are revealed externally since our world is a replica of our internal attributes.
It says: “Five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you will pursue ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you,” because a person will always have the power, the power of the Light in order to overcome the enemies that rise against him; the power to defeat them and to go on.
Comment: I always think of an allegory that is related to a small state called Israel that looks like the eye of a needle on the world map. It is surrounded by many enemies, but will it be able to overcome them if it is compatible with the law of bestowal?
Answer: Even more than that. It will have no enemies. The enemies will be revealed only for a moment and will immediately become our friends, our helpers, because we will be protected by the attribute of love and bestowal.
Question: Don’t you ever give up because this doesn’t happen as quickly as you would like it to and is actually going in the opposite direction at the moment?
Answer: We should feel that way because we come out of Egypt only in a state of total darkness. Therefore, I am waiting impatiently for this state, waiting for the time that we will all be able to undergo it.
The people who are attracted to the revelation of the Creator need to understand that we have to undergo these phases, that we have to support one another, and that we have to advance in any case or crawl if we don’t have the power to do so! There is no other way. “Only he who follows the path will overcome it.” I do hope that I will be able to be with everyone at least in the hardest path of this road, so as not to leave the people in Egypt.
Question: Has the hardest period already started?
Answer: Yes, and I am glad that it has. We shouldn’t speak about it too much since otherwise we will not undergo it. We will begin to calm ourselves: “Everything is fine; that’s the way it should be; everything is still ahead of us.” Then we will really be unable to succeed in anything. We see what the Creator does: “Come to Pharaoh once again! And then once again!” so should I calm everyone here? On the contrary, we have to undergo all that.
The Torah says: “And there was evening and there was morning, one day.” Which means that without night there is no daytime; without night there is no whole day; without night there is no Light. One day! It is only after the evening, night, or darkness that we reach the Light. Every state, whatever it may be, has to start from the negative side.
