Torah, Deuteronomy, 32:26 – 32:29: I said that I would make an end of them, eradicate their remembrance from mankind. Were it not that the enemy’s wrath was heaped up, lest their adversaries distort; lest they claim, “Our hand was triumphant! The Lord did none of this!” For they are a nation devoid of counsel, and they have no understanding. If they were wise, they would understand this; they would reflect upon their fate.
The task of the Creator is not to destroy humanity, but to bring it to the realization that ascent above our nature is a blessing, necessity, and an absolute freedom from the side of the Creator.
He must bring us to a very interesting, almost paradoxical state, where while being absolutely free and not being acted upon by some terrible states, we voluntarily choose the quality of bestowal and love. However, we do not see this. On the contrary, so far we are moving “toward happiness by the stick.”
But eventually under the influence of this stick, a person will realize his true nature and will say, “Even if I returned to the previous egoistic state, I would in no case want to remain in it! Thank God, I recognized the evil of my nature and now I am saying goodbye to it. Not because I felt bad being in it and I experienced great suffering, but because egoism is an evil in the relationship between me and other people, and between me and the Creator.”
Here is manifested the attainment of amazing height, perfection of the quality of bestowal and love. However, all this happens through great suffering. We see that people who experience such suffering, nevertheless, are themselves drawn to mercy because Light enters into them a little and gives them a taste for it.
It is written, “Were it not that the enemy’s wrath was heaped up, lest their adversaries distort; lest they claim, “Our hand was triumphant! The Lord did none of this!”” A person must see with his own eyes that everything that happened to him could not happen by itself (from the point of view of inanimate nature), but this is a controlled program that works on him and leads him to the realization of his source.
