Every Candle Strengthens The Light of The Flame

Dr. Michael LaitmanDegel Machane Efraim, “BeShalach” (written more than two centuries ago by Rabbi Moshe Haim Efraim from Sudilkov, by the student and grandson of Baal Shem Tov)

God’s servant should be incorporated in all the created beings, and so he has to connect to all the souls and to be incorporated in them and they should be incorporated in him. So you should leave yourself only what is needed for the connection of the Shechina (Divinity).

In order to do so, there should be a multitude of people who are connected, as it is written: “Connection of the righteous is good for them and good for the world.” Since the Light of the Shechina (Divinity) will be revealed more if there is a multitude of people who serve the Creator.

According to the sages, “the righteous are the same before the Shechina (Divinity), like a candle before a flame,” so according to the multitude of candles, the Light of the flame will grow since it is the Shechina (Divinity). Therefore one should be incorporated in all the people and in all the created beings, and they should all ascend to their root in order to correct the Shechina (Divinity).

The correction is actually in having more and more people who have learned just a little and who join the same great connection, called the Holy Divinity, in which the Creator can reveal Himself to the created beings. Therefore it is said: “The King’s glory is in the multitude,” and a force that is strong in quantity should appear, just like in previous generations a force that was strong in quality appeared and was operated by great Kabbalists.

They were on a very high spiritual level, but they were few as they had to draw and to convey the Light that reforms from Above down to our generation. We receive it through them, but the manner of correction in our times is totally different. If we want to reach at least the beginning of correction, we have to connect all the candles, and thus reach the Light that can illuminate in our vessels.
