Question: Is the role of the created being to develop the desires given to him by the Creator? What free actions does the created being have in relation to the desires that we reveal during our lifetime?
Answer: We can control all our desires but only if we begin directing them for the benefit of everyone else, outside of us. Otherwise, we will be like ordinary people.
In principle, the method of Kabbalah is very simple, but it is hard to master it because we have to act contrary to our current qualities, which means applying all our desires for bestowal, for good, and for connection with others, then we will be able to control them with the help of the upper Light. Otherwise, they will control us the way it is now.
