Make Your Desire Like His

 

When reading The Book of Zohar, we have to see the Light in it that corrects us and returns us to the source. But what has to be returned to the source? I have to place something "beneath" the Light. The Light shines, but do we have the desire that we want to correct? This is what we have to be concerned with.

The desire has to be suitable for being corrected by the Light. If the desire does not correspond to it, then the Light still influences it, but in that case we feel bad to the extent of our desire's difference from the Light. This remains so until we make our desire suitable for correction.

That's why there is a rule, "Make your desire like His" and then "He will make your desire like His," like the desire to bestow and love.

All the Problems Come From a Lack of Light

 

Question: What is the use of studying The Book of Zohar if I discover that I am merely trying to run away from my earthly problems?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: A person studying The Zohar does not have any earthly problems besides one: to unite with the friends to such a degree that the upper Light will become revealed inside of the connection between them. All the problems come only from the lack of Light. There is no other source and no other solution.

A person can fuss about and try to correct this state using all the possible earthly means, and he will discover that he seems to have corrected it, but instead of correcting it, even worse problems arose, and everything became much worse. Why is that?

That's because he thought that he could overcome the previous problems alone, but maybe now, when greater troubles came crashing down on him, he will no longer think that he will overcome them alone and perhaps he will turn to the right solution. And if that doesn't help, then he will be sent even greater problems until his cup of suffering overflows and he will see "the hand of God" in it, like Pharaoh's sages did.
