Journal entry 312

Journal entry 312: “The Higher Joy strengthens, explicitly, through the complete nullification of one’s self because the soul starts to recognize the entire mistake that there is a separate self, and (as an effect) one’s desire strengthens to become absorbed in the body of the King (G.d), in the Infinite perfection of Supernal Pleasantness.

And this is the complete humility and the deep lowliness, where a separate sense of self would be a ‘remnant’ – an incomplete aspect that remains not included in the Supernal Perfection where ‘one makes one’s self a thing of the past’. This feeling is a feeling that is particularly associated with Israel who humble themselves with every greatness that is given them.”
