Question: What does it mean that Israel is too lazy to take the land?
Answer: If people are afraid to go against their egoism, are unable to unite, and master the quality of bestowal and love above themselves, then this is a problem. It is natural because you need to go against the ego, which is the primordial nature of man.
Therefore, friction arises between the children of Israel: who is more, who is less, etc. They no longer work in connection with the Creator but as if who would rise above whom.
Joshua Ben Nun (son of Nun) inspires them and shows them how to take a few more steps for the sake of connection among themselves. Then the Creator is revealed even more between them.
Question: You often say that laziness is good. What do you have in mind?
Answer: Laziness is a good quality when a person clearly evaluates his desires and does not do any other actions, except for bestowal and love. This is commendable. But egoistic laziness, when you want more for yourself, must be overcome.
