Torah, Deuteronomy 28:02 – 28:03: And all these blessings will come upon you and cleave to you, if you obey the Lord, your God. You shall be blessed in the city, and you shall be blessed in the field.
There are five levels of egoistic desire: zero, first, second, third, and fourth. If you do the right thing, you will be able to interact with the surrounding nature on all these levels: inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human.
The inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels of nature are called a field, and a human nature is a city.
There are many additional complex laws of correct spiritual interaction in a city because the Creator is revealed there.
The priorities of the system of relations between people should be clearly set in the city: the judicial and legal system, the system of education and collection of taxes, the interaction between women, children, and men, and so on. This is a whole social system at the level of human.
It is in the city that we reach equivalence of form with the Creator. There is nothing in it that would have an aimless construction, unconnected to its spiritual root, structure, and manifestation of action.
If we had properly educated ourselves spiritually, we would have built this world as a complete copy of the spiritual world to the smallest detail. After all, our soul, residing there, consists of the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human parts, including the root part. We would accurately build the structure of HaVaYaH both in the spiritual world and in the material world.
How, for example, did the architect Bezalel create the Temple, the holy of holies, and so on? A person is visited by a prophecy and he sees how everything is arranged in the roots that govern us. Like the projector shines on the screen and creates an image on it, the same thing happens here. He sees the root and creates in our world its consequence dressed in forms such as bricks, trunks of trees, vegetation, and houses.
If a person is connected with his spiritual root, then he does everything in our world in accordance to that root. He does not have to think about anything, just not to oppose but to match himself to it. Then it turns out that our world is completely similar to the upper world. This is the final correction.
Question: Does it mean that the great Kabbalist Ramchal portrayed the Third Temple based on his attainment?
Answer: Yes. His article “Mishkani Elyon” is about this.
But the fact is that as soon as we reached the level of the First Temple, we immediately began to fall from this level. Bloody wars began between us, huge opposing forces and various egoistic problems were revealed.
All this began to break inside with great speed. When the Jews cannot overcome their egoism and rise above it, then egoism begins to destroy them. Therefore, Nebuchadnezzar conquered the people of Israel and again led them into exile.
From that moment, it was impossible to say that everything among the people was in accordance with the spiritual roots.
The law is such that as soon as you reach a spiritual peak, you immediately come to the next degree, which is the manifestation of a huge hatred. If you cannot restrain it, then it crushes everything.
