The earthly calendar with its holidays does not quite reflect what is happening in the spiritual world. The state called “Yom Kippur” can be realized on Hanukkah or Purim, and Passover, the exodus from Egypt, can happen at any moment. In our world, everything is determined by a common inanimate system, but in spirituality, everything depends on a person, on his individual development. Therefore, it is quite possible that one of us is in the state of Purim, another one is in the state of Pesach, and still another is in an ordinary weekday or the ninth of Av.
Spiritual states refer to the unification of people until the complete restoration of the common system of the first man, Adam. This system was shattered and we need to reassemble it. Gradually, all its broken connections are revealed, all the severity of the shattering that penetrated to the very depths of nature.
Yom Kippur is a harsh state. However, it is very important for correction because on this day the lack of connection between us is revealed, the lack of faith, the lack of the feeling of the Creator. Also, the correction of this day is: “Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God,” that is, feeling the upper force as yourself. By connecting with each other, we allow the Creator to be revealed between us and we adhere with Him.
Yom Kippur is the disclosure of all the desires that need correction. The main thing is to reveal one’s evil, because the correction will already be fulfilled by the upper Light. Our task is to realize our own evil, to hate it, and to want to get out of it. And the Creator will complete this work for us.1
All the sins occur only for one reason: the absence of the feeling of the Creator. One can even say that the absence of the feeling of the Creator is the main crime.2
