And they commanded the people, saying: When you see the Ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then you shall move from your place and go after it.
Prophets, Joshua, Chapter 3:05: And Joshua said to the people; Prepare yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.
To prepare before a transition means to be purified from egoism, from all the properties, intentions, and thoughts that can still be for one’s own sake. A person needs to test himself and rise to such a level that one can estimate approximately what other doubts and obstacles there may possibly be.
Question: In principle, people have already approached the barrier, so the purification has already taken place. Do they still need to test themselves again and again?
Answer: But you do not stay in one place, you keep moving forward all the time.
Purification happens not for the past but for the future because you are now already accumulating the property of bestowal, Bina, with which you can advance.
The land of Israel is very cruel, very egoistic. It is not suitable for a simple person to exist in it. That is why it was empty for hundreds of years. Nothing grew on it. Only now, when the Jews came here, did it suddenly show that it can blossom and develop.
Question: Does the fact that it is developing externally mean something?
Answer: This only means that we can live here, but only if we behave in a way that is worthy of this land. Then it will bless us. And if not, we cannot exist here. It will vomit us out as before and we will have to leave it.
