Question: In the article “The Freedom,” Baal HaSulam writes that there is a foundation in every person, that the root of his soul that does not change. Is this foundation somehow related to the Reshimot?
Answer: This is the basis of all Reshimot over which all kinds of changes and actions take place. The very basis is unchangeable; this is called the primordial gene. That is, each of us has an original gene that goes through all kinds of states, Reshimot, and everything is recorded on it.
Question: What can we change? What changes and what remains the same?
Answer: We can change the application of the Reshimot (spiritual information records) that are in us for the future. And this, by the way, will correct our past.
Using correctly what is recorded in you, you can change your future destiny. It is impossible to change the past, but by changing the future, you thus change all impressions and consequences from the past.
Question: What exactly can I change? How will I feel about this future?
Answer: The future itself will feel positive. In principle, it is correct to say that a person is building his future. And a Reshimot is like potential states and nothing more.
