Answer: When you pursue spiritual development, perhaps in the beginning, you will not feel the result of your correct actions.
However, if they are directed toward bringing a person to the method of unity—that is, to Kabbalah, and to be learning that everything has to come down to uniting humanity and carrying out the main law of the universe, “Love your neighbor as yourself”—then one is acting in the positive direction in the straightest and most obvious way.
By taking these actions, you will begin feeling the way that you are influencing the world positively. After all, the positive forces of the upper governance begin passing through you.
