Comment: A few thousand years ago, the spiritual method was such that a person could reveal the upper force through great suffering and their justification. Since the time of the Ari, another method became relevant—the need to develop the screen. There is no longer the need to suffer because that method did not affect the increased egoism.
My Response: In the method of the Ari, by reading about the lights, the screen, the ten Sefirot, and the interaction between them, even without understanding what is written about, a person draws the surrounding light upon himself, which begins to build a screen in him. And gradually, through it, a person begins to connect with the upper world.
With this method, you can achieve the opposite of egoism (qualities of bestowal and love), get out of the ego, and begin to feel the opposite quality of nature.
