Now, in the last days before the Convention, we have to be ready for the disturbances to grow stronger from all sides and we have to strengthen each other. We have to try to explain that there is no way out and movement forward is only possible by becoming stronger above the mind and feeling, like a “mule under a yoke and a donkey under a load,” meaning only by making efforts, without using our mind and feelings.
Unlike all religions and “spiritual practices,” in Kabbalah we do not destroy egoism. Rather, we desire its development and accumulate the challenges it presents because we ascend above them.
Therefore, let every person come with his entire load of egoism no matter what it is. Precisely by using it as a basis, we have to create a connection with each other. Then instead of a short circuit that we get when there is no opposition between us, we will get a result by ascending above the opposition.
Therefore, the remaining time is very intense and critical, when we are being thrown into polar directions: between good and evil, confusion and clarity. We have to rejoice about the fact that we have achieved these states; the most important thing is not to remain indifferent.
And if a person finally comes to the Convention after going through all of this whirlpool, then he has something to come with! Then we will correct everything else together!
