How To Choose A Better Environment At Every Moment
says that a person must always strive to be in a better environment. So what
specifically should I do?
Laitman's Answer: You have to try to worry at every moment
about the fact that you are entirely dependent on your environment. Within this
worry you will start to have thoughts and desires to connect with others, and
you will reveal that the environment contains everything.
though these people are still uncorrected, they contain the corrected system.
They don't even feel it themselves yet, but you will reveal it through
searching. Spirituality already exists in its corrected state, but its
revelation depends on our desire, as it is written, "Every person judges others
to the extent of his own defect."
have to strive to feel the influence of the environment. This influence carries
energy, understanding, and the need to turn to the Light, the importance of the

How Do Great Kabbalists Connect To Us From High Spiritual Degrees?
HaSulam writes that he asked the Creator to lower him from high spiritual
levels in order to be able to bring Kabbalah to people. What does this mean?
Laitman's Answer: In order to bring Kabbalah to people, one
must actually be on the highest possible level, but at the same time, be able

alphabet. That's because he is closer to the source of Light. Thus, if a
Kabbalist asks to be lowered from his spiritual level, this does not mean that
he refuses it, because refusal would mean refusing bestowal to the Creator. The
higher a person is on the spiritual rungs, the greater is his bestowal to the
in order to bestow to the lower ones, he is willing to create an additional Partzuf Searot ("hair"). Yet, at the same time he himself does not descend,
similar to how an adult plays with a child and behaves as a child at that time.
When he comes down from his level, he does not lose anything. It's only in
relation to the lower ones that he is closer to them and is able to be in
contact with them.
the spiritual world, attaining a level is a very difficult action because it is
opposite to movement toward the Creator, upwards. One has to connect with the
uncorrected desires and prefer their correction over engagement with something
higher. This requires inclusion into the general scheme of the souls'
connection; one has to feel the importance of their general correction.
