Prophets, Joshua 11:06: And the Lord said to Joshua, “Be not afraid of them, for tomorrow at this time, I will deliver them up all slain before Israel. You shall cripple their horses, and burn their chariots with fire.
Question: If on the way to spirituality (to the Land of Israel) we are persecuted and attacked by egoistic desires, what does it mean that they are on horses and chariots?
Answer: This means that egoism with all its strength and with all its potential opposes connection and work in bestowal and love. There is a very difficult struggle ahead that cannot be overcome at once. There is a weakening of the people of Israel and they begin to moan.
But it is impossible without a fight. We also need to fight to identify our own negative qualities, not only external but also internal. This is how the people of Israel will move forward.
Horses and chariots symbolize all kinds of egoistic tools that seduce people and show them how sweet it is to live in egoistic desires and be bound together by egoistic competition.
In other words, it is the attack of the egoistic desire that greatly attracts a person.
