Born Anew Every Day

216.01The feeling of confusion and chaos is a very good state. It is only necessary to clear the head and heart of all this confusion so that there is a pure Kli to get rid of all the old baggage. And this is a good sign that marks the transition to a new state, to a new degree.

We see many examples of this in our life. I cannot write on paper that has already been written on, I need a blank sheet. And I cannot pour a drink into a dirty glass I do not know what was in previously. It will spoil the whole taste of the drink that I want to try now. We need clean vessels.

Therefore, it is necessary to train yourself to purify your Kli every morning before the lesson without waiting for it to purify itself. And then, in a pure Kli I will be able to check what I receive into it and what I fill it with.

One must be sensitive to checking one’s spiritual Kli and its filling. And therefore. it is written: ” Each day, they will be as new in your eyes.” That is, every day I have to feel completely renewed.

Perhaps yesterday I even had some revelations and I understood a lot of things that were not clear before. It does not matter because it is already in the past. And if I am working with something that has happened in the past, then it is a Klipa. I must try to get out of yesterday’s state even if it brought me revelations and sensations, a pleasant filling, in my mind and heart. But I want it all to be empty, and every day is like a new one for me to start all over again.

Therefore, if we come to the lesson not empty but with the same baggage, then this is not good. It does not matter what it was like—good or bad—we need to start the day with a clean slate.

And even if I am standing in the middle of the desert not knowing where to turn and what to do, not understanding why I came to class, it is good that I am starting from scratch. This means that I am starting to work properly, anew.

And so it is necessary to start studying articles of Shamati realizing that it is impossible to start working cleanly and correctly if you pull behind you a cart from the past. Start from scratch, like a newborn baby!
