Baal HaSulam, Shamati 34, “The Advantage of the Land“: What should one do in order to come to love the Creator? For this purpose, we are given the remedy of engaging in Torah and Mitzvot [commandments], for the light in it reforms him.
We need to attain the state in which we will permanently feel the Creator. The permanent revelation of the Creator ensures that we will be in eternity, in wholeness, in pleasure, in filling and attainment. The only thing we need to do is to attain the revelation of the Creator.
There is light there which lets him feel the severity of the state of separation. Bit by bit, as one aims to acquire the light of Torah, hatred for separation is created in him. He begins to feel the reason that causes him and his soul to be separated and far from the Creator.
A person feels very sharp and accurate sensations of getting closer to the Creator or further away from Him, but he does not know how to coordinate them with his development. But this is not a bad thing since nothing disappears. We do not disappear, and we do not go anywhere, not from this life or death.
All we need to do is to ascend to the next level, in which we will float in constant energy and general love.
