Bring The Zohar To Life At Every Lesson

longer We have to read The Zohar over and over until the Light begins to influence us. At first people feel very inspired when reading The Zohar, and this feeling lasts for the first month or two. During this period they do not understand anything yet, but they become very inspired by whatever is happening.

Then this feeling disappears and everything begins to appear dull. When you read The Zohar, you start feeling this way very fast. All of a sudden we have nothing to hold on to in the text, and we simply read it with the understanding that this is what we need to be doing even while we feel indifferent to the material, it seems “tasteless,” and even repulsive.

The reason we feel this way is because we are being revealed an additional egoistic desire which aggravates the connections between us. The Zohar shines upon us to the extent that we connect with one another. At the very beginning we are given a connection of the points in the heart. As we begin to read The Zohar using the initial connection that was given to us, our points in the heart awaken and desire to reveal something new and unknown. The name itself, “The Zohar,” inspires us.

As we begin to read, the Surrounding Light shines upon us and helps us to raise the points in the heart above our regular egoism, leaving it beneath. This is why in the beginning we feel a connection between us and an aspiration towards a common spiritual goal. All of this happens because of the Surrounding Light (Ohr Makif) which comes and creates this state for us.

But a month or two later, our egoistic desire grows due to the Light’s influence. On one hand, the Light causes us to be inspired, but on the other hand, our egoism becomes bigger and because of this, every person feels heavy within, as if there is a force pulling him down. There is only one thing we can do to save ourselves: increase the connection between all of us. Nothing else can help.


We need to use all the possible methods, even artificial ones, to renew this connection. If we increase this connection even slightly, then we will be able to rise above the burdening of the heart and our egoism because we will return to the connected system of creation.

We are receiving a revelation of our lack of correction and being shown how much we are separated from everyone else. When I try to oppose this separation, then the impression and inspiration from The Zohar immediately comes back. It works instantaneously! As soon as you begin to experience a feeling of heaviness, you should immediately do something to strengthen your connection with others. For example, start thinking about how much you want to unite with them and to become closer to them in order to connect your souls. This small, forced action is enough for you to immediately begin to feel the Light’s increased influence and for the to heaviness to disappear. You will then feel the same inspiration and excitement that The Zohar gave you during the first lessons.

This is how it works. You have to put all the necessary effort into it; you do not get any “discounts” in this regard. The effort lies in trying to unite among ourselves until we cry out for the Surrounding Light to come to us because only the Light can give us the inspiration and the feeling of how great The Zohar is. Then this text will suddenly come to life for us.

The Preparation For The Next Congress Starts Now

The Condition of Entering the Upper World Is Mutual Guarantee All of our work happens in the “dark,” after we were together and felt unity and inspiration. Now that we have gone our separate ways, every group and every person have to attain the same joy, inspiration, and power that we reached at the Congress with our joint efforts.

If we do so, then by the time we meet at The Zohar Convention 2010 we will arrive there with the force that we realized after our last meeting by ascending above all the “sinners” that become revealed in us. If we are always inspired from the time of our last Congress to the next one (which has never happened yet), then we will really be prepared for the next Congress.

We must now make efforts to feel the same elevation as we felt during the Congress. Otherwise, all our work will go to waste. Now is our chance to ascend. At the Congress we were influenced by the environment; every person influenced everyone else. This is why each of us felt elevated; it was an “awakening from Above.” Now, in order to grow, we have to absorb all of that influence like a grain planted inside the earth.

Now is exactly the time each of us must do this! Each of us received everything from the others, but only potentially, rather than practically. The Congress is a time of giving, and now, between the Congresses, is the time of our reception when we have to absorb everything inside us, process it, and grow.

This constitutes our spiritual work. Instead of falling, each of us must stay at the same elevation as took place during the Congress. Do whatever you need to – dance from morning till night, or cry over not being able to do more. But the most important thing is to make efforts. Otherwise you won’t actualize what you have been given.

The joy we feel inside now must be much greater because it is the true joy of attainment. If we make several successful attempts, we will have the right inner preparation for entering the spiritual world. It will enable us to understand, assimilate, and live through the necessary spiritual degrees within us.

Granted, these aren’t yet the real spiritual degrees, but ascents by the power of an “awakening from Above” followed by us duplicating it with our own efforts, by an “awakening from below.” The breaks between the Congresses and a Congress are similar to the weekdays and Saturday. It’s like day and night, where all our work of preparing our desire takes place at night. When we correct our egoistic desires and give them the intention of bestowal, we reveal the same state as day.

The only thing that changes is one’s attitude; one then feels that it’s day. But nothing changes on the outside.

Revealing The Power Of The World Kli

What Is Mutual Guarantee in a Virtual Group A question I received: We have just completed a Congress with tens of thousands of participants all over the world who wanted to unite. What were we missing to make the jump to the next spiritual level?

My Answer: We revealed that there are many people all over the world studying together with us, who we didn’t even know about. However, quantity is not the only thing that’s important. We also have to reach a correct, powerful connection. In the meantime every person still has his own idea of unity, but we already have a good, powerful base for creating it.

Now everything depends on how much every person will be able to understand and feel that:

1. The Creator created just one common desire,

2. It was deliberately arranged that we, the parts of the common desire, do not feel our connection as one inseparable whole in Malchut of the World of Infinity. On the contrary, being in this world we feel the broken Malchut, where we don’t even feel our souls but live in an imaginary reality which is nothing like the real one.

In actuality, all of reality is spiritual and we are now in an unconscious state. We perceive the lack of spiritual consciousness as our world and as us in it. Therefore, we must all understand that everything we see now is a fog, our shared fantasy, and we have to make efforts to return to the true reality. The true reality is founded only on our desire to feel our unity, our mutual inclusion into one another and of all of us together.
