A Place Of His Own

laitman_533_02Question: What should I do if I tend to fall asleep during the lesson?

Answer: Sleep! I am serious. The main point is that you are among friends. Sleep! Rabash used to say so, and I got used to it.

At first I thought, “How could that be? After all, I must do something!” There were people who used to come and sleep for three hours. There are also such people here, but I value them no less than I value others since they make an effort in coming here! Frankly, it doesn’t bother me at all. I value this friend just like any other member of the group like anyone other.

Question: But I don’t want to come here to sleep during the lesson! There should be a certain level of importance.

Answer: First of all, you should be happy that you have a place among the friends. It is very meaningful. You come here and take your place and not someone else’s. It is best if everyone has his own place, that you have found your place.

Then the collective work begins: the study, the workshops, and reading articles. Preferably, all of our study would be in the form of workshops, as we study TES, The Book of Zohar and the articles, since the discussions help extract more than usual from a person.
