A question I received: You said that a person’s success at achieving correction depends on his inclusion in the group. On January 22-24 there will be an international virtual Kabbalah Congress. Congresses will be held all over the world in different countries at the same time. Anyone is invited, including those who study alone over the internet. This is an opportunity for them to join the local groups. What can you say to those who are now trying to decide whether they should attend the Congress?
My Answer: A person cannot sit home alone at this time, without making en effort to unite with other people who study Kabbalah. If he does, he will lose a lot. This Congress is especially intended for bringing people together who are located in remote locations. Now is the best time to unite with others in your country or city, and to meet other people like you who are working on spiritual development. During the Congress, you can meet them.
A virtual connection is a good thing, but a physical connection is necessary. It’s not a coincidence that we are living in the material world. The physical connection serves as the beginning for developing all subsequent spiritual connections.
During the Congress I will be in Italy, presenting a new book. I am not inviting you to come to the Congress in Italy, which will be exclusively local. Instead, try to organize local Congresses at the same time in other places worldwide.
