The element of will/ratzon does not change. It is the same in the heights of the soul as when it is dressed in the body.
A man is situated in his will – he is where his will is. This is a principle of the Baal Shem Tov.
We experience this without being aware of it.
From a soul perspective, the reason we can function in this world is not due to our ability to 'deal with stuff', but due to a certain reality that exists. This is the phenomenon of ratzon. It is above being absorbed in the world.
It is in the world. It relates to its mission here on earth. I have will/ratzon, which is super-wordly. It has no logical/worldly basis.
Ratzon/will is an expression of 'I am here'.
It is not based on worldly parameters. It is imbued into the soul by the Creator, and you relate to Him the same wherever you are. If you think into it, you can find all truth in the world.
The world is here, not because of itself, but because He wants it. And thus all points relate to Him.
This will/ratzon is a Godly gift. He blew life into you. He's blowing it into you now!
