The Principal Transition
Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 1:09 – 1:10; 1:12 – 1:15: And I said to you at that time, “I cannot carry you alone. The Lord, your God, has multiplied you, and behold, you are today as the stars of the heavens in abundance. How can I bear your trouble, your burden, and your strife all by myself? Prepare for yourselves wise and understanding men, known among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.” And you answered me and said, “The thing you have spoken is good for us to do.” So I took the heads of your tribes, men wise and well known, and I made them heads over you, leaders over thousands, leaders over hundreds, leaders over fifties, and leaders over tens, and officers, over your tribes.
All desires are divided in a pyramid into numerous tens because this is the structure of the ladder of spiritual ascent. It is impossible to correct them otherwise. The pyramid collects all the tiny private desires in it that gradually rise to the highest degree and become included in it. By merging into one single desire, they come into contact with the Creator.
Question: Why does Moses say, “I cannot carry you alone. How can I bear your troubles all by myself?”
Answer: Because this is the quality of Bina. It has completed working in all desires and now the next force begins to work in them. The force of Moses, the force of Bina or faith, has exhausted itself and the next stage begins. Hence it is allegorically said in the Torah that he dies.
The Torah is not talking about people or Moses, but about a person’s internal forces of correction when he unites with others according to the principle “love your neighbor as yourself” and reaches the level of the “land of Israel,” meaning he is ready to unite with others. His entrance to the land of Israel signifies the beginning of unity.
At the same time, all previous spiritual degrees don’t disappear because they need to connect to the degree that is now rising dramatically to the next level. All various previous corrections accumulate, like in a meter that spins constantly till it reaches a predetermined limit, and then readings are reset and everything starts anew.
It is the same here, all previous corrections accumulate, then comes the next correction, but this time it is different, not in order to bestow, but in order to receive. The complete calculation of preliminary correction of the soul ends and it begins to work on the different level called the land of Israel.
Question: The Torah frequently repeats and recalls seemingly the same things. What do these recollections give us?
Answer: Each degree that exhausts itself has to return, meaning to “remember itself,” manifest itself again, make a general correction and move to the next degree. This is what is happening now. And this already happened several times in the past. But this time this transition is essential, when the entire paradigm of correction changes.
