To Discover New Kelim (Vessels) with Happiness
How do you
relate to the burden of the heart?
If I find
myself in a state where I feel empty, but I don't feel like doing anything,
i.e., I agree with it and am buried in
it and I don't find any strength in myself and don't see that it's something
that I need to overpower, then it's not correct. I need to look at this state
as the state on which I must receive new Kelim.
This is a
very important point. Either I look at the state from above the burden of the
heart, which is difficult for me, or I discover the new state with happiness. With
this burden, the Creator puts Himself first and demands from me to make an effort
in order to know Him. I am across something that is still unknown to me, but
the matter is placed before me.

The Force of Tzimtzum (Restriction)
is the "Force of Tzimtzum" ?
The "Force of
Tzimtzum" is when one passes to faith above reason in relation to
This means that in each situation that is revealed to me, I must think of the
good of others above my own good. If I am able to begin to think like this, it
is called that I already control my desire to receive by the power of
this I still haven't begun to work for the good of others. However, if in each
and every place, i.e., in each desire (where "desire" means place), I
can immediately relate to others and to myself and to consider it in a way that doesn't depend on
me, to be in balance between them, then that is called that I acquired the
force of restriction.
In other words,
when the desire to receive is discovered, it is revealed as internal and
external, and I immediately discover in it a part that seems to me as inner (me),
and a part that seems to me as external (others), and I am above this and can
classify it correctly.
