How Is The Environment Selected?

528.01Question: Does a person choose his environment?

Answer: No. As it is said in one of the articles of Baal HaSulam, the Creator brings a person to the desired state: “You place my hand on the good fate, to say, ‘Take this for you.’”

It depends on us only to strengthen ourselves in this way, or at least not to leave. Cling to it with your teeth and keep it that way.

Question: It is said that a person is obliged to nourish from his environment. What kind of nourishment are we talking about?

Answer: It means absorbing properties, values, assessments, and tastes from your environment.

Question: Why is dependence on a spiritual environment considered freedom?

Answer: Because you become free from your egoism.
