Between Good And Evil

207Question: Why is it that the more that we do good, the more evil is revealed, to the point of hatred?

Answer: Indeed, the more that you do good, the more evil is revealed to you. In principle this is the correct realization of the system.

By doing something good, you have completed a level, you have corrected something within you, and now your next level is revealed, which begins with evil to make it possible for you to correct it, and so on.

Much has been written about this in the wisdom of Kabbalah, therefore, your good deeds always arouse and invite bad results. Some students don’t understand this, they run away from the implementation of the method and leave; others remain, and thanks to this they advance.

This is exactly as it is in a science, the more that a person learns, the more it seems to him that he knows nothing and many questions appear within him; while someone who doesn’t learn anything thinks that he understands everything; after all, “What is special here? Everything is clear!”

That is how it happens everywhere, on all levels of attainment, as it is said, “He who increases knowledge, increases pain” (Ecclesiastes 1:18). But it is specifically this that leads him to greater knowledge.

And here again we encounter that it is up to us to balance the right and left lines and exist between them.
