What Gives Strength To A Desire?

laitman_567.04Question: What awakens a desire? For a Kabbalist, what determines if it will be realized and in what form?

Answer: Desires are awakened by the upper Light, or the Creator who acts upon us with greater or lesser intensity. Accordingly, more or fewer desires appear in me.

Desire is common, but the light itself, acting on us, outlines in each of us the desires of the inanimate, plant, animal, and human levels. I then begin to feel myself on all these levels.

This includes every kind of desire, from the lowest to the highest, because everything comes from the same source.

Question: What gives strength to a desire?

Answer: The intensity of the Light that descends upon it.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 5/13/18
