Baal HaSulam. “The Teaching of the Kabbalah and Its Essence”: But we must still understand what was the purpose for which the Creator created this lot? Indeed, it is to elevate him to a Higher and more important degree, to feel his God like the human sensation, which is already given to him. And as one knows and feels one’s friend’s wishes, so will he learn the words of the Creator, as it is written about Moses, “And the Lord spoke unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.
Anyone can be like a great sage. The fact is that by interfacing with one another, we can transmit spiritual information and the strength to work reciprocally, and elevate everyone in the process. This is people’s distinctiveness.
Question: In that case, can anyone become like Moses, like a great sage?
Answer: It’s not that anyone can be like a great sage, everyone must reach that level!
There is no greater spiritual degree than Moses. It is the greatest level a person can achieve. It is not easy to do so. It is difficult, but feasible for everyone. In any case, we will all reach this degree, but toward the very end of correction.
Question: Moses appeared right at the time of Pesach (Passover). Why didn’t he appear earlier?
Answer: It doesn’t matter. Every person is born at the time, in the condition and environment necessary for his correction. Everyone goes through various changes in his life in order to realize certain corrections in himself.
Therefore, one should never be upset about being born later than or in a different country from the one he would have liked to have been, or for coming into this world weak or small, etc. What is the difference where or how? We do not determine where we live, our gender, internal qualities, or our relationship with the outside world. That is all determined by an internal system, an inner web of forces. We just have to act according to it.
