Baal HaSulam, Shamati, Article 7: Through accustoming oneself to some thing, that thing becomes second nature for that person. Hence, there is nothing that one cannot feel its reality. This means that although one has no sensation of the thing, he still comes to feel it by accustoming to that thing.
It all depends on how much we train ourselves, impose a certain form of thoughts, behavior, and movement on ourselves. In this way, we can reformat ourselves so that we will enjoy some actions, objects, and things. Or vice versa.
It all depends on how we program ourselves. There is nothing else in a person except software content.
Question: In principle, our desire is the raw material and the program is education. Is it possible to educate a person to treat his neighbor as himself? To care for your neighbor as you do for yourself?
Answer: It is not easy. Such a process must be constantly accompanied by certain rewards so that I can take care of someone else, so that I feel that I benefit from it.
This is all related to the same actions we usually use to train animals: a dog or a cat. There is nothing special about it. It is just that animals are much easier to train because they are already domesticated.
We have trained them for many generations and they have become more flexible about our requirements from them.
Question: If in order to reveal the upper light or the upper power we must correct our attitude toward our neighbor, then does it mean that I can accustom myself to feel the light through the habit of feeling my neighbor?
Answer: Although this is very difficult, it is possible because it is nothing more than a directed habit.
