“That you may live” means the correct development of the land of Israel and the continued existence in it. Land – Eretz is from the word “Ratzon,” which means desire.
That is, to the extent you use your desires correctly, you have an opportunity to exist in them, and through this you obtain a volume that gradually becomes your spiritual world.
After all, apart from the point in the heart you have nothing. The more you can extend it by correcting your desires to bestowal, the more of it you build to a sphere. It is called your soul and you exist in it.
In principle, the spiritual world doesn’t exist. You create it from those desires and intentions that you have now, and from our world, you build the spiritual one.
What is the difference between the two worlds? It is the presence of the upper force that is the quality of bestowal and love.
Question: After all, the intention is also given from above. What efforts should a person make in order to have a correct intention?
Answer: Just to ask. Usually a person begins to ask when he is under pressure. And we talk about how we can get closer to the request, the so-called prayer, when it has not yet been formed in us, and how to accelerate our ripening so that we would really start asking. This is a problem.
To do this we need to come together, try to perceive all sorts of thoughts and desires of the friends, and influence each other with the combined efforts, which is to accelerate our approach to the new desire. And once it is formed in us, it will receive an answer from above.
From above means from the next degree that already exists, but precisely by forming correct intentions, correct actions, and correct desires we connect to it and reveal the higher states to the highest one. This means “to possess the land,” meaning to climb the steps of the spiritual ladder.
