And I brought you to the land of the Amorites, who dwelt on the other side of the Jordan, and they waged war with you; and I delivered them into your hand, and you inherited their land; and I destroyed them from before you.
Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and he sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you.
And I did not want to hearken to Balaam, and he blessed you; so I delivered you out of his hand. (Prophets, Book of Joshua, 24:8-10)
There are many forces that work seemingly against the Creator, against Israel, in order to create the impression that you can do whatever you want, that the Creator does not do everything for you. This is what, in general, should be happening.
Question: Are you saying that Balak and Bilam have the same power as the Creator?
Answer: Yes. And the people of Israel can balance these forces with the help of the Creator. And it turns out that the people of Israel can exist in the middle line.
Question: Why was Bilam’s curse so terrible?
Answer: This is the force that is added from the Klipa of the left line, meaning a very serious burden on the way when leaving Egypt.
A curse is an additional burden in accepting the law of universal bestowal and love, preventing it from being realized.
By and large, this becomes a real curse for those who move toward the Creator. For others, it can be a blessing.
