Answer: If we prepare well during the period of the Convention by strengthening the connection between us, then this connection will help us immediately attach the ascents to the descents.
We really do have the opportunity not to fall. To achieve this we have to prepare at the Convention in such a way that afterwards we won’t perceive the burdening of the heart and desires as evil, but as a means and an opportunity to ascend.
We have reached a special state – a great unity of people who are different, foreign, and distant from each other. In essence, we are all of Babylon, yet at the same time we are able to create a connection where we can use the example of unity we will receive at the Convention and then constantly remain in it.
We must only maintain the same inspiration, the same connection, and the same importance of the goal, holding on to the example we received, holding on to the force we attracted during the unity. Then we won’t have any problem rising up the spiritual degrees.
Unity fills us with energy and the realization of the goal’s greatness and importance. We have to act in a way that will prevent the subsequent states from becoming descents into darkness. We must see them as desirable and necessary ahead of time, according to the principle, “I awaken the dawn instead of the dawn awakening me.”
We await the darkness just as the Light because it offers us the chance to ascend.
