This means that your desires that you want to restore from egoism in order to raise them to the spiritual level will fall again into egoism.
In this case it is better not to give birth to them because being born on the spiritual level, they cannot remain on it and will fall to the lower level at which they were before birth, meaning that “they shall go into captivity”.
Torah, Deuteronomy 28:42: All thy trees and the fruit of thy land shall the locust possess.
Nothing will remain from the plants that you planted, the animals that you raised, and the house that you built—absolutely everything will rot in the egoistic swamp.
“All thy trees and the fruit of thy land” are desires of the vegetative level. They also fall on the lower egoistic level, the symbol of which is the locust.
Locust are often mentioned in the Torah because it represents the egoistic level of a person that can be corrected.
