Question: The daily lesson is divided into five parts. Should the intention be the same throughout?
Answer: Of course! That’s all there is since the entire Torah speaks only of the connection between us.
The first part of the lesson focuses on how we should relate to the connection between us and use it to reveal the general quality of bestowal: the Creator. It’s like an introduction before actualization, like having the rules of the game explained before it begins. That’s the first part of the lesson.
The second part of the lesson is the game itself. Here is where we should genuinely try to do the following:
- To always think about the network of connection between us;
- To always listen to what The Zohar speaks of;
- To combine and to connect The Zohar’s text to the bond with the friends that you imagine so that the connection with the friends will assume the form that The Zohar describes.
Naturally, The Zohar speaks of the bond between us at very exalted degrees. But as we imagine ourselves at these exalted degrees, in those states, we will grow, as children do when they imagine themselves being adults, since the upper state described by The Zohar will influence us.
