Question: Why should we take our stony hearts and put them together as a monument?
Answer: In order to mark the place of transition from an egoistic state to an altruistic one.
Question: But being not yet corrected, do we, one way or another, enter the land of Israel with stony hearts?
Answer: No, we are breaking away from our stony hearts. They will continue to accompany us here and there, but not so that we are in them, but so we will work on them and rise. This is the so-called redemption, the capture of the land of Israel. With these terms, we pass into it.
In other words, our egoistic desires remain and turn from egoistic to altruistic. Therefore, we must constantly develop them, reveal their selfishness, which manifests both in wars and in what awaits the people in the land of Israel. We need to work on this all the time, but this work already consists in raising Malchut to Bina.
Question: It turns out that the children of Israel came out of Egypt with hearts of stone, carried them through the desert, and here they laid them down and the work began?
Answer: Yes. Lay down your heart of stone with the others. And later it will still wake up in you, but in order for you to gradually turn it into a living heart.
