There is nothing greater, higher, or more perfect than a deficiency of connection with the Creator. If I lack adhesion with the Creator, what could be better?
If there is a set table in front of me, then it is wonderful that I am so hungry that I am ready to taste all the treats on the table and give pleasure to the owner who cooked everything with love.
The deficiency is the only thing created by the Creator. The Creator lacked only a deficiency and therefore He created it. And we just need to learn how to work with the deficiency. This is the subject of the wisdom of Kabbalah, which teaches how to form the correct deficiency. If there is a deficiency, the filling will come.
