When preparing for the lesson, I have to imagine that I am going to a meeting with the Creator in order to come closer to Him and to enter His field of vision. That’s because I come to the group, the place where the Creator becomes revealed. He will not become revealed outside of the group.
It is written about this in Scripture, “I dwell in the midst of My people.” To the extent of the group’s height and force, meaning the quantity and quality of its efforts, I will be able to enjoy the Light that I receive through it.
The group is the Shechina, Malchut of the world of Infinity. The group is my ark, my motherly womb, and my soul in the true sense. That’s because it is the collection of all the desires that I lack in order to correct them and attain correction.
Therefore I have to imagine that Israel, Torah, and the Creator are one, that I am one whole, one Kli together with the group, as one man with one heart in which mutual guarantee reigns. This Kli attains the single Light.
Whether there is one Light or several Lights depends on how closely welded together we are. If we are welded, then the Light influences us, and its might increases in accordance with our unity, which also grows stronger. Then we reach correction.
What does the correction amount to? It amounts to unity itself. As soon as we attain unity, the Light comes, correcting and filling us.
