Answer: States can be different; therefore, if we are talking about one friend, the parallel with the Creator is possible, but not in all cases. Here there is something additional, which is how much I appreciate the group and the goal that we are revealing among friends. After all, the group, the purpose, and the Creator are one.
Only the group is the vessel, the desire (Kli,), while the Creator, the attribute of bestowal, is the Light that fills that desire, manifesting itself in the desire to the extent of their mutual equivalence. Eventually, the vessel and the Light become completely equivalent by achieving the property of mutual bestowal and unity; they will become inseparable.
Thus, one should attribute to the group even more importance than to the Creator. The group is a means, without which I cannot reach Him, and at this stage what is important to me is the means. Rabash gives an example of an unimportant government clerk from whom I depend more than from the entire government: While ministers are busy with state affairs, the clerk makes specific decisions about my case, either by approving or rejecting it.
The Group is a meeting of our little desires, striving to reveal the Creator, the attribute of bestowal. I must once and for all decide: I cannot turn to the Creator on my own. My message is carried out only in the group, and as for the Creator, I don’t know who He is, but He will be the one revealed inside it.
