How Should One Read The Sources?

laitman_216_01Question: What kind of intention does one need to read Kabbalistic sources if I read them alone, for example, at home or traveling on a train?

Answer: Understandably, it is preferable to study the sources together with others, but many times people read them alone.

However, the intention must always be one: on the basis of the written source, I want to receive knowledge about the correct interconnections of all of humanity into a single system.

According to the degree of our unity, we will become more compatible with the same higher, unique management system that manages all of the still, vegetative, and animate nature and humanity. We aspire to unite because through the connection between us we form a model within us of a higher, unique, and perfected nature.

The model that we feel within us will give us knowledge, power, and possibilities for us to feel that we are in a perfected world. We can change everything around us, including ourselves and society, and we will feel the higher eternal and perfect system. We transform ourselves to be like that system.

Therefore, when there is no possibility for a person to read or study together with others, he does it alone, but with the same intention.
