If a person feels a yearning to become Human and uses it correctly, he is called “Israel” which means “straight toward the Creator” (Yashar-El). He wants to aim all of his activity and all the circumstances he encounters in a way that connects them to the Creator. Then, in every situation and at every moment in life he wants to be under the influence of the Light that Reforms.
By building these things for himself the right way, a person discovers that he is standing in front of the Light, the Creator, and his entire work lies only in aspiring to the demand that is aimed at this correcting force. After all, looking at the big picture, only the two of them exist in the whole world.
In that case a person correctly builds his environment as well. The friends are parts of his soul, belonging to the same desire. To the degree he attaches them to himself, the Light comes and corrects that unity, replacing its form of reception with the form of mutual bestowal. Then all of the creatures surrounding a person become parts of him and everything fuses into one whole by means of the Light.
That is how we come to the study, to the use of the Kabbalistic method, and attain the goal of creation. By trying to take the right direction before the study and at other times, a person determines the speed of his advancement.
