Answer: It is exactly what we aspire to achieve. We are building an environment in order for it to affect us all, to instill new values into us, and to make us feel ashamed that we are not yet in bestowal and don’t feel the same way that we will during the congress.
I realize that during these three days I will feel a burning flame within me, excitement and inspiration. Then why can’t I always feel that way? Before and after the congress, I will probably undergo difficult states, ascents and descents. During the congress, too, there will be moments when I will and will not desire unity, when I will be “for” and “against” it at the same time.
This teaches us how much we need the group and the pressure we feel from the friends so that thanks to their impact, we could attain adhesion with the Creator sooner. This is what we should experience at the convention.
