The Torah, “Leviticus” 26:21 – 26:22: And if you treat Me as happenstance, and you do not wish to listen to Me, I will add seven punishments corresponding to your sins: I will incite the wild beasts of the field against you, and they will bereave you, utterly destroy your livestock and diminish you, and your roads will become desolate.
The phrase,” I will incite the wild beasts of the field against you,” means that a person’s active correction begins with the help of the negative forces and attributes to which he has given birth. It is very hard to explain this allegory since everything takes place inside a person, in his feelings.
Imagine living with your family in the jungle when suddenly the jungle is invaded by wild animals. They come running out of nowhere and surround you. Imagine the fear that you feel facing this long and exhausting threat on your life!
We would give up our life under such circumstances, but the upper force arranges things so that we begin to protect ourselves and begin to cherish our life, without knowing where to run or what to do! We reach a state in which we are ready to betray our friends and family as long as we can escape this threat. This is how you are shown who you actually are. A person discovers his true nature. This is a positive recognition, the right one!
Question: Not too long ago, there was an avalanche in Nepal where nearly 40 people were killed. I heard a terrible story on the radio: A young man said that he had escaped, leaving his friend behind, but, when he realized at a certain point that he had left him to die, he went back, but it was already too late. Now, the thought doesn’t leave him, and he must live with that his entire life.
Answer: That’s true, and everything is done so on purpose so that a person would understand his nature.
