Question: While anticipating the Kabbalah Mega Congress these days, I started to feel like a child who is looking forward to a holiday feast. What does it mean?
Answer: We stand on the threshold of the desired revelation. It is a very serious action that may bring about incredible changes. If we want to enter spiritual world, meaning to reveal the Creator among us, we can achieve this only in our unified desires.
During the three days of the congress, we will try to come together and connect our desires in one. If we keep aspiring to experience everything in one collective desire, we will meet the condition which the people had received at Mount Sinai: become as one man with one heart. If we do, the Torah – the Light that created and divided us and is now willing to unite and lift us to the Creator – will be revealed to us!
We won’t be able to unite by ourselves, but if all who participate in the congress truly yearn for unity in a single desire for the Creator, we will draw the Light upon us. Our oneness could be temporary, or it could be real and cause the correction of our “fall into sin.”
United desires are called the Soul (Adam), and the Light which is revealed in them is the Creator, Bo-Reh (from Hebrew words “Bo” – Come and “Reh” – See). This means we have come and attained such quality of oneness that we found the Creator in it.
In my perspective, it is quite possible. Therefore, I see congresses as profoundly important. If, however, the complete oneness is not achieved this time, I won’t despair. I know how much closer such gatherings bring people and I have no doubt that after a few such actions, we will have the Creator reveal Himself to us anyway.
There is no better means to accelerate our progress. One such “attack” of people unified in a single desire is worth six months of scrupulous, daily studies. This is why I am so excited and hopeful that we will achieve what we aspire to.
