The Torah, “Numbers” 9:13: But the man who was ritually clean and was not on a journey, yet refrained from making the Passover sacrifice, his soul shall be cut off from his people, for he did not bring the offering of the Lord in its appointed time; that person shall bear his sin.
If a person feels that he is pure and that there is no egoism in him that can be corrected, it means that he hasn’t worked on himself the whole year and has nothing to offer as sacrifice. The word “sacrifice” in Hebrew stems from the word “to get closer” and to rise to a higher level.
This is why this weekly section of the Torah is called BeHaalotcha (as you rise). Thus a person who hasn’t revealed and exposed anything in him and has nothing to correct because he considers himself perfect cannot ascend the spiritual levels. Such a person has nothing to advance with. However a person who systematically cleans his “stables” and sees what he can correct and what he can’t and brings to the Menorah what he can correct so that it can be corrected gets closer to the Creator.
Comment: A person is considered holy in our world if people believe that he is pure and has nothing to correct.
Answer: No! A holy man is someone who constantly finds the “carrion” inside him and continuously reveals and exposes increasingly greater reasons inside him for correction and fulfills that. He is constantly dynamic and there is no end to it.
