Question: People who are engaged in spiritual development are trying to move to Israel, they seem to be drawn to this land. However, we do not see that by coming here they become more spiritual. Does it mean that the land does not have an effect on them?
Answer: And it should not. After all, we must make special efforts in order to begin to rise spiritually.
Comment: I thought that the land of Israel influences a person who comes here, and he becomes better and kinder.
My Response: On the contrary! Those who come here are under the influence of certain forces that slow down their development. A person should make greater efforts. But at the same time with their help, he reaches higher spiritual degrees.
