The main problem is that a person, even after studying Kabbalah for many years, can’t grasp that the whole Torah becomes realized in the connection between people. This concept repels us so much that we forget about it every moment. We are ready to do anything else but that!
That is the first obstacle on the path. And here, everything depends on building the environment that will constantly hold a person on the correct line. We reveal the spiritual world only by deepening this connection inside the group, specifically an internal connection with the friends, not an external one. After all, the spiritual world is the connection between us.
We constantly develop this connection one step after another, and draw the Light that Reforms wishing for the general force of bestowal, called the Creator, to secretly dwell between us. We want to reveal Him so that He would correct the connection between us.
And then the connection and mutual bestowal that exists in the upper Light itself will be revealed inside our desires so that the vessel (desire) and the Light become equal. This is called the adhesion of the created being with the Creator.
The emphasis in our work has to shift to the group, the connection between us, so that all our desires and thoughts, except for the most vital ones relating to the maintenance of the animate body, will be directed toward the good of the others. And then we will go through, relatively quickly, all the stages that bring us to the revelation of the force of bestowal or the revelation of the Creator to the created beings.
The main thing is to direct oneself, to clearly and precisely define the line of work, which is only in the connection between the creatures. And that takes a long time because filtering out all the other possible paths, approaches, and means is the work against one’s egoism, disappointments, and that takes a lot of time.
But after a person finally makes this decision, meaning the Light directs him or her towards this state, towards a connection between the created beings, after that one gets on the right track.
