Question: How can we compare the concealment of the Creator and the action of the light that reforms?
Answer: The Creator conceals Himself on purpose so that we summon the light that will return us to Him, reveal Him, yet not so that we will feel good about it, but so that we know how to behave correctly.
In principle, all our actions in relation to the Creator are aimed at that, meaning, at how to get closer to the Creator, not to demand Him, but demand to be in equivalence with Him. There is a great difference.
We are getting closer because of our common work. The Creator helps me by creating concealment, and I want to get closer to Him, yet I do not ask for His revelation but only for the opportunity to correctly relate to others.
So, I demand an answer regarding the categories of mercy, truth, justice, and peace. As a result, if I obtain the correct forces to them, I get closer to Him and create such a unified, spherical connection between me and everyone else, which is gradually filled by the Creator.
