Question: Why does humanity suffer so much? Why is such suffering necessary if it does not directly impact the point in the heart? What is the connection between the suffering and the awakening of the point in the heart?
Answer: In order to understand this, we need to learn about the general structure of the soul. The soul is one and we are all inside it as shattered particles since the time of the shattering of the general soul, which resulted from what we call the sin of Adam HaRishon. There are five levels of Aviut (thickness) of the ego in the soul, and in addition to that it is divided into different attributes in all kinds of combinations.
It is therefore very hard to say why every individual has this or that predestined fate. It depends on the reincarnation of the souls. After all, we connect to each other endlessly, merge, break up, and draw apart. It is impossible to imagine the extent to which this system operates in mutuality and takes into account our initial state when we were connected, and then when we were shattered into different parts, and now when we are starting to gradually come together.
The ultimate goal is to reach the same level of unity as there was at the beginning, but now it already includes all our efforts to connect, by which we become absolutely identical to the upper force, to the light, to the Creator.
And the fact that each one has such a complicated fate, we cannot understand; it is not clear why some people suffer more and others less. For this we need to study and to know the whole system. Then you will see how perfect everything is, without any concessions or exceptions for anyone.
On the other hand, you do not see all reincarnations of lives. You do not understand what those people had and what those people will have. Eventually no one can say that it is better for someone to have something and for another to have something else. No one can do that, not even the greatest Kabbalists, not to mention those who are the furthest away from the wisdom of Kabbalah who have not even have been born yet, and where they exist and how is unknown.
I can assure you that no one can reproach the upper governance about any injustice. If you attain the system of the soul, you will see how integral it is and how each and every moment it guides us to the attainment of the absolutely perfect whole state.
