Confusion And Correct Direction
Everything in the world is a means through which I can arrive at the correct appeal to the Creator.
If we are concerned that the need to reach the correct response in facing the Shoresh (root) will always be foremost, if we remember that there is nothing except that, and that the entire world and the entire theatrical show before us is completely just a means to concentrate our efforts, then we will be able, in response, to locate the Director, the One who arranges this confusion for us. In inner concentration on Him, through the confusion, each time we will reach the correct direction for the appeal to Him.
We mustn't scorn the world around us, especially the environment, the friends, and the studies. We need to see that everything that happens to us, in each moment of life, are opportunities to locate in a more precise manner that same point of Shoresh from which the appeal of the Creator comes.
Everything has its place in the world, and without the world I wouldn't be able to direct myself to Him. Thus, we must pray for the bad just like for the good, and not to request that the Creator remove certain things, but to accept all these conditions and all the discernments they bring us. If not for them, I wouldn't reach contact with the Creator.
