Be Stiffnecked No More

laitman_221Question: It is written, “You shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, therefore, and be no more stiffnecked” (Torah, Deuteronomy 10:16). What does being “stiffnecked” mean?

Answer: A person must increase his sensitivity to the things he can correct and act in this direction, not stand stubbornly in one place. In other words, it is necessary to try to be connected to the Upper Light of Hassadim so that it will dilute a person’s qualities and will give him an opportunity to see the best way to use them.

After all, in entering the land of Israel, a person begins to work with his qualities of reception, which are very hard and heavy qualities.

The land of Israel is the heaviest part of the joint Malchut, joint desires, and it isn’t simple to work with them.

Therefore, it is written, “be no more stiffnecked,” don’t be headstrong, but try gradually to dilute, as with water, these huge, difficult-to-correct desires with the Light of Hassadim. Then, you will see that it is possible gradually to work with them.
