The first degree of mutual guarantee is the initial degree of the spiritual ladder. This entire ladder is the implementation of the levels of mutual guarantee: from 0% to 100%, the 125th degree. At the Convention we are trying to reach the initial condition of mutual guarantee on the simplest level, and to hold on to it at least temporarily.
This is possible if we all desire it passionately and are able to transmit this aspiration to one another. Only a small fraction of the people will be able to attain this state consciously, while the rest will join them. We are connected together in a spiritual scheme, a Partzuf in the form of a pyramid that has a peak (men from 20 to 60 years old whose might is 60 x 10,000) and lower layers (called the elderly, women, and children). However, eventually we all unite together in one group (nation) that “stands at the foot of Mount Sinai.”
When the innermost part, the “men between 20 and 60 years old” take the mutual guarantee upon themselves, then all the others, the newcomers, join them. Everyone becomes included in one whole and is deemed “one nation,” which receives the spiritual revelation. It is written that the entire nation heard the Creator’s voice from Mount Sinai. However, the innermost group is the first to take on the actual condition of mutual guarantee.
