It Is Hard To Be Righteous
Torah, Deuteronomy 11:17: And the wrath of the Lord will be kindled against you, and He will close off the heavens, and there will be no rain, and the ground will not give its produce, and you will perish quickly from upon the good land that the Lord gives you.
If a person is not engaged in spiritual correction, he is left without the Light of Hassadim, without moisture and rain, and he can’t use his egoism correctly.
The sun burns so much that it becomes not a light of life but a withering heat for him. With such an attitude to life, to the world, and to his mission, a person withers without water (the Light of Hassadim). This is exactly what is happening today.
Question: Is such a state of impasse felt on each new degree?
Answer: This impasse must continue for no more than a moment. However, it has to be recognized by a person in order to move forward, as it is written, “There is no righteous man on earth who has done good and did not sin first.” So on each degree he stumbles and then moves forward, stumbles and moves forward. He passes the lowest point of bifurcation, recognition of egoism, and only then he begins to rise.
Moreover, at the lowest point, he completely denies the Creator, doesn’t agree with anything, dives into extreme egoism, and becomes the worst offender of all the laws, meaning he is absolutely opposite to the upper state of the righteous.
Question: Does this apply only to these who advance and not others who don’t reach this point?
Answer: Of course. Normal people don’t experience any internal states. They don’t even know what states the righteous are in.
