|A Baal Shem Tov Minute III|
|Written by Bentzion of Medziboz|
You may be in a state of katnus (smallness; restricted consciousness) with a great attachment to the Shechinah. If, however, you will then think of the Supernal World, you will instantaneously be in the upper worlds (so you can ascend from katnus to gadlus: mature, unrestricted consciousness). For a person is where his thought is (this is an oft cited concept of the Baal Shem Tov). Thus if you had not been in that upper world, you would not have thought of it at all.
(From Kesser Shem Tov sect. 38 note 42 and found in Tzava’at Harivash)
