Baal HaSulam, Shamati 13, “A Pomegranate”: It means that these thoughts of emptiness come to a person in order for one to have a need to take upon himself faith above reason. And for that we need the help of God. It follows that at that time one must ask of the Creator to give him the power to believe above reason.
You do not have to decide anything yourself. Ask all the time. Be a real “nagger.”
To take alien thoughts and raise them in faith above reason means that we must raise all disturbances that emerge in us and treat them as egoistic disturbances. As much as they are against us, we must rise above them.
Question: What does achieving faith above reason depend on?
Answer: Only on our perseverance and correct direction. It is necessary to create such a Kli (vessel), a state of connection between us, that will reveal the Creator.
