“Remember That You Were A Slave In The Land Of Egypt”

560Question: Your teacher Rabash, commented on a passage from the Torah, in his notes: “Remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt.” Why should a person remember this?

Answer: Remember means that you must constantly awaken the state in yourself when you were a slave of egoism. Now you are not in egoism, but you incite it in order to work with it even more deeply, even more, and rise even higher above it.

Let us say you jumped out of Egypt, you are in faith above reason. And then what? You need to constantly incite the Egyptian states in order to always rise above them higher and higher, up to complete correction.

Question: But we said that, on the contrary, it is necessary to cultivate the greatness of the Creator’s quality of bestowal, this upper force of nature, and not to remember how bad it was in egoism. Or do we need both?

Answer: No, you are not remembering these qualities, but you incite them within yourself because you still have them in you. But anyway, they are already above your transition from egoism to altruism. Then, once you are already in altruism, you incite them for further work.

Question: Does it mean that when we left Egypt we had not yet reached the final correction, and this is just the beginning?

Answer: There are 125 degrees ahead of us!
