Comment: In Kabbalah, there is a formula for life: If you live today because you lived yesterday, then you are dead.
My Response: Not “because,” but just as I lived yesterday. If you are not changing, then you are dead. Every day a person must be new, be born, as it were, anew.
Comment: Kabbalah says that a person is created new every time.
My Response: Yes, every moment a person is new. If only he feels it.
Question: And what does it mean “every moment a person is new”?
Answer: Reshimot, its internal natural data, are updated. But does a person adapt them to his life? Does he manifest them in himself? Does he feel his inner renewal?
Question: How can he feel it?
Answer: Being more sensitive to what is happening within him. I have to feel, hear, that the Creator is changing in me every second, what He wants from me.
Question: What is changing in a person?
Answer: The attitude to the world and to the Creator.
Question: Is it getting better, worse?
Question: And how should a person recognize it and act?
Answer: By the feeling of intimacy. The world and the Creator require the properties of bestowal and love from a person, participation. That is how a person should control himself, meaning, whether he is more and more in this property.
Question: How can an ordinary person recognize those new desires that lead him closer to the world, closer to the Creator?
Answer: Bestowal and love. He needs to learn that.
