In this way we discover that we were constantly progressing, although we did not feel it.
When a person possessing the property of Malchut wants to find some kind of support in the property of Bina and it is completely opposite to Malchut, then it really is a desert in which only snakes and scorpions creep. A person does not understand, does not know what to do, and is totally confused.
The desert embodies such inner states when everything burns you, when you have nothing. It is from such intricate states that you can turn to the Creator, otherwise, egoism won’t allow you.
