The group where a person undergoes correction is a mini-humanity that was formed in the ancient Babylon. After numerous descents and ascents, the members of the group complete their correction, rise above their egoism, and form a correct society among themselves.
Naturally, at the end of their correction demands become tougher. Therefore the name of the Torah portion “Rehe” (Behold) sounds like a warning, “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse” (Deuteronomy, 11:26).
After all, a person has already been prepared to treat the spiritual elevation seriously, rise to the next level of existence, go beyond the limitations of the material world of objects, and exist in the world of properties.
This is the land of Israel, meaning the world of intentions, qualities, and properties that don’t have any relation to what we feel now. When a person enters it, he gradually loses the sense of the material world and exists in it, as if leaving his body.
He doesn’t perceive the body as something necessary. It just binds him to others that haven’t entered the sensation of the upper state yet. However, in principle, we all will enter it gradually.
Question: Can any of the twelve tribes that approached the land of Israel turn back?
Answer: No. At this stage of the journey it can’t happen. Everyone is focused on the land of Israel. Still, each of the twelve tribes has its own path, its own technique, and its own means of communication.
