Тоrah, Deuteronomy 11:16: Beware, lest your heart be misled, and you turn away and worship strange gods and prostrate yourselves before them. When a person gets another revelation of a new egoism, a new degree, it is always revealed as an evil, in the uncorrected form, because all the degrees are parts of the broken Kli, the vessel of the shattered soul.
The uncorrected state is represented by evening, night, and darkness. Then the day comes, the correction and reception of the Light into the corrected state. Therefore, when a person goes through these states and succeeds in something, a new degree appears in front of him immediately and his egoism tells him, “Well done, you corrected yourself! You can do it alone.”
It turns out that then it is very difficult to adapt to the next degree correctly and start working with it. The “snake,” a person’s “I,” rises in him again, either from a bad or a good side, but always it.
Question: When his “I” manifests in him, can we consider it as a sign of the next degree?
Answer: Naturally, because everything starts with the night, but how hard it is for us to understand that this is a beginning of the next degree.
