Our task is to ascend together up the spiritual degrees so that inside of us we will unite the corrected desires that are filled by Light. Then, when our world group of “those aspiring to the Creator (Isra-El) becomes filled with His knowledge, it will “overflow past the boundaries of Israel” and will fill “the nations of the world.”
That is, all of our groups all over the world, all those who have a point in the heart and aspire to revealing spirituality have to unite together and attain the state where their spiritual attainment will become so powerful that it will overfill their vessel (desire) and will splash out into the desires of the “nations of the world.” This is called “bringing Light to all the nations” and becoming “the priests of the Creator” (Mamlehet Kohanim).
Obviously, it is necessary to prepare the world for this in some way by disseminating the knowledge of Kabbalah throughout it in the external form that people are ready to accept. But most importantly, “the dissemination of Kabbalah among the nation” happens on the inside, without people even being aware of it. After all, they do not have the ability to learn it consciously, the way those who actively study it do.
Yet, from within, people will begin feeling the influence of the Light that fills us. They will feel that we have some kind of fulfillment from which they will also begin receiving a small glow, and then they will be attracted to our group. The prophets said about this that “the nations of the world will take the sons and daughters of the nation of Israel onto their shoulders and will bring them to Jerusalem” (Ira Shlema, meaning “the perfect city,” or “the perfect fear” of the Creator).
Therefore, for the sake of disseminating Kabbalah we must first of all take care of own correction and fulfillment. And it’s not because we want to receive it ourselves, but because then we will be able to bring Light to the whole world and that way we will give the Creator pleasure.
The formula is this: We have to correct ourselves in order to conduct Light to all the other souls and bring them to the final correction. That is how we fulfill our mission with the goal of giving pleasure to the Creator.
All the other souls are unable to correct themselves other than with the help of the souls of “Isra-El,” meaning the souls in which the desire for correction awakens. Only these souls are able to independently become corrected and then become a conductor of Light for all the other nations. That is to say, they have to attach all the other souls to themselves as Galgalta ve Eynaim attached AHP. Then a full, integral vessel (desire, Kli) is formed in which the Creator can dwell. Meaning, the Upper Light will fill these desires.
That is exactly how we should view our own correction. We shouldn’t wish it for ourselves, but must aspire to give pleasure to the Creator through correcting the nations of the world.
