There is only one creation – the desire to fill oneself with the Creator – divided into billions of partial souls. With their corrected souls, Kabbalists of the past developed a system, by which we can receive the correcting Light. In order to receive it, we must:
- Attempt to rise above our egoism through unity with others; and
- Strive to receive the correcting Light through studying their books.
In the midst of seven billion souls there exist special souls, which create a connection among them; these are the souls of Kabbalists. By existing within the overall system of souls, as if raisins in cereal, they create a connection among themselves, which allows for Light to flow between them.
By desiring to bond ourselves to these higher souls and by reading what they wrote, we aspire to become like them. As a result, their Light also influences us and without the desire for the bonding, the Light cannot be revealed in us. A simple physical law operates here: without the connection, you cannot receive.
But since this system already has such souls that have united with each other, anyone who desires to unite with them and possesses the external means to do so, meaning the books and the connection with a group, are also utilizing that same Light, which exists between the special souls and which can also shine for others.
This is exactly how adults take care of children. In advance, they develop all the necessary conditions for them to operate in this world. The little one aspires toward the grown-ups and wants to join them, to learn from them; this is how he grows.
