Question: You said that condemning oneself leads a person to prayer. How do we get to the right point to evaluate ourselves when we are in an ocean of concealment?
Answer: At any given moment, you can see absolutely clearly how you feel about your friends. Try to realize what Kabbalists write to us, and you will see how much you disagree with what they write and how much you do not want to get close to other friends, unite with them, and work for them. That is, you will be absolutely clear where you are.
Hence, you will begin to worry about what will happen to you next if you do not change yourself. And in order to change yourself, you must turn to the Creator. That’s it.
