We have started our work on building a Kabbalistic group. If, throughout the day, we keep thinking about the day’s article we are studying, we will see enormous transformations within us. When so many hearts and desires act according to the method of Baal HaSulam, aspiring to and clarifying the goal together, this action itself already unifies us.
Together we attract the Light which begins to act upon us, and we feel tremendous changes. These changes, however, may seemingly be to the worse. So what? Their purpose is to teach us that advancement occurs above our egoism, above our desire to receive pleasure and sense an egoistic reward.
I worked so hard, but the next day I felt even more heaviness of the heart, my own insignificance, weakness, disregard, hate, and indifference. Nonetheless, I have to get up and continue walking. It is similar to the wandering in the desert described in the Torah. “You have discovered your evil? Great! Now you will learn how to correct it and continue on the path.”
