Although one sees many contradictions in God’s Providence.
Overcome them through faith above reason, they are benevolent Providence.
One can see this when they have already been awarded the Light that rests above these contradictions.
The contradictions are called Dinim (judgments).
The contradictions can be annulled if one wants to overcome them, by the greatness of the Creator.
Sometimes one can see that later, after one has already been granted faith above reason.
There would not be a place for the Upper Light to be if there is no vessel.
Which is the challenges-“problems”
This means that through the challenges-“problems” of providence, they cause one to elevate oneself upward.
It is as if God gives one a push .
One cannot consent to remain in the state one is in, or where one has descended to.
One must always come out of the state of descent.
One must draw upon himself the greatness of the Creator.
One gradually discovers the greatness of the Creator, until one finds the Names of the Creator, called “the thirteen attributes of Mercy.”
יהוה יהוה אל רחום וחנון ארך אפים ורב חסד ואמת
נצר חסד לאלפים נשא עון ופשע וחטאה ונקה
Now, he is granted Light of God.
One must draw upon themselves the Upper Light.
For all the people in the world, too, since he is mingled with them.
On a certain soul level we are all connected, we are all one.
Through extending the Upper Light over the public.
Although they themselves cannot receive this Light in a revealed consciousness.
Because they do not have prepared vessels for that.
One who causes extension of upper Lights.
Receives from these Lights, too, since he was the cause.
In this manner the greatness of the Creator increases, even touching the wicked.
The Light above reason increases even touching the wicked., they wither away and become annulled.
All the wicked have help from the righteous.
make the connection creating the reality of this Light through good deeds and “the thirteen attributes of Mercy.”.
Make a expansion of the Light.
And the Dinim (Judgments)- and lack of awareness of Divine providence are canceled, since they are replaced by the greatness of the Creator, over and above reason.
When they are worthy of receiving, they will receive the Upper Light on them.
When one strengthens in the toughest situation, one is granted the greatest Lights, called “the greatness of the Creator.”
So when one faces such a time, one faces potential for great blessings.
All the Dinim come only to reveal the greatness of the Creator.
Each individual is incorporated in thoughts and desires of an entire world.
Every person is called “a small world” in itself, for the above reason.
Intellect above reason, or motivation is the Light of Dvekut (Cleaving to God)
One should work with gladness since through gladness the true measure of the everything appears.
Discover the gladness by working above reason.
when one has no gladness from this work, one afflicts oneself with it.
He is sick and tormented at not having gladness from this work.
This is obviously not Gods intent,
Concerning this it is written :
“ And all these curses shall come upon you, and shall pursue you, and overtake you, till you are destroyed; because you listened not to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded you; And they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and upon your seed forever.. Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart. “
This work has the taste of dust, that is, it is as unimportant as is dust.
This work is as dust inside the eyes, which blocks his spiritual vision, he sees contradictions in Providence.
Sparks of unconditional love, is called “ joy of Mitzva.(commandment)”
