Exit from Babylon, i.e., from a state of confusion, is similar to how a person feels when he discovers Kabbalah. Before that he is very confused and does not know what to do. His life and the whole world seem somehow incomprehensible to him. What is he living for? What is going on with him?
Gradually, the property of bestowal and love is revealed in him, and with the help of this power, he begins to feel that it is possible to rise above the world, that this whole world is still temporary, and he lives in it against his will.
Nevertheless, a person is given the opportunity to rise above this and find a completely different course of life, which is parallel to this one. He will look at everything that happens from above, and in parallel with this, he will flow in his new realm, at a new level. What is below—he, his family, his relatives, everything that exists at the material level—this is not the most important thing and is only needed to somehow accompany him.
The most important thing is that in his inner transformation he is similar to the Creator, and in this likeness, he floats, constantly changing himself. He has a goal, strength, and ability to do it. He studies Kabbalah, studies what all this is for. Now he is already beginning to identify himself with a completely different movement in this world. He already has his own path, which is a little higher than everything earthly.
This is called leaving your Babylon. The person rises and begins to flow in his stream. What happens to everyone here—let it happen. The fact that he is included in the others and rises above them is also necessary. He absorbs from them what is necessary, for example, he takes his household members with him, etc., but, in principle, the bulk remains at the bottom. This is the exit of Abraham from Babylon.
