A Single Problem

961.2We have a single problem. We think that we can make corrections in ourselves with our mind. But corrections are made not with the help of your mind, but with the help of the upper light. That is, we have to annul ourselves before the upper light like a baby lying in his mother’s arms and allowing her to do whatever is necessary according to her understanding.

Our entire work is exactly this, annulling ourselves before the group and before the Creator so that He makes of us what He needs, what the upper wants, and what He considers right.

I do not calculate exactly how to annul myself or dictate to the Creator how to correct me, but I simply completely annul myself as much as possible. Then the reforming light will perform all sorts of corrections within me.

Therefore, I am not trying to build a connection between the friends by myself, but I annul myself and thereby give the Creator the opportunity to create this connection between us.

This connection should be the work of the Creator and not of my mind. The entire correction is done from above, and the only thing that is required of us is to annul ourselves. Annul your logic and everything will work out. The mind is given to us only for one purpose, so that we have the mind to annul before the upper one.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 2/17/22, Writings of Baal HaSulam “Introduction to The Book of Zohar
