Question from Facebook: Wouldn’t it be simpler to move to a small village and live as before, simply and peacefully?
Answer: If you can live on the level of cows or radishes, then all would be well.
Everything depends on the individual’s level. But, on the other hand, he can also exist in this state and, at the same time, be in spirituality.
Question: If an individual leaves for the country, for a simpler life, does that mean that he is ignoring his growing egoism?
Answer: No, he can be a great Kabbalist at the same time, even with a huge ego. If the Creator needs him, then He will give him challenges, even there among the cows, so that he will find exactly what to occupy himself with in order to attain the Creator.
Question: Does that mean that a person can move to a village and live there peacefully?
Answer: That’s not the point. The point is motivation! It doesn’t matter where a person lives. Everything depends on how he establishes his inner world.
