The first type is an inanimate level disturbance: earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, etc. Plant and animal level interference include various diseases and viruses. Human level interference include some kinds of psychological deviations. Is it possible to calibrate these types of interference?
Answer: It is possible.
Answer: Of course. This happens in accordance with the structure of the soul, that is, our inner desire that we must balance and adhesion with the Creator.
Comment: Suppose, a rejection arises from unification within a Kabbalistic group. I understand that this obstacle is against my egoism and is given to me so that I can acquire the Creator’s altruistic ability not to think about myself.
My Response: This is regarding your action. And regarding the state in which you must determine, that there is none else besides the Creator and only He influences you, what should you do here? How can He influence you, give you some tasks, obstacles, so that you can still train knowing that this is all from the Creator and not from anything else?
When, for example, they write unflattering things about you everywhere, blaspheme you, or you have a fight with your family, or when you see that you are doing wrong, acting egoistically and you condemn yourself, how can it be that you do it yourself if there is only one force that makes all this happen?
Thus, you must change your attitude toward yourself, to others, and to the whole world, for only one single reason: “There is none else besides Him.”
