To The Convention With A Burning Heart

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How can we practically unite our sparks at the December convention?

Answer: You should arrive at the convention with the sparks already united. This is what is meant by preparation.

Why am I going to the convention? I am going there to evoke inner unity with others through various external actions, to be included in that spiritual vessel where we are all waiting for the revelation of the Creator. All our preparation is aimed at the unification of those sparks.

All my desires and thoughts are directed at the goal, at the revelation of the spiritual world, the upper degree, eternity and perfection, something great and boundless. I have to select all my hopes and bring them towards unity with others. Only by having united our yearning for the higher degree all together, will we feel the common vessel that is created from these individual impulses and the Light that fills it.

This is the preparation: to arrive at the convention with the desire that is already formed, clarified, and burning inside.

Questions About Studying And Suffering

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Can any person (not a Jew), who feels the awakening of the point in the heart, study the entire wisdom of Kabbalah (everything concealed in it, and not only mutual guarantee) or should he first move to a different state?

Answer: He can study everything, but he will understand what he studies only if he attains, reveals the spiritual world.

Question: Is our development process so unbearably difficult or there is an easier way? Why does the Creator want us to suffer, to be confused? He wishes us everything good, but we suffer. A mother tries to make her children’s life easier and to make them happy.

How can I give a personal example if I want to die and cease to feel pain? The only state when I am feeling better is during the convention, when our entire community gets together. Why can’t we be at one endless convention?

Answer: If you followed the advice of Kabbalists, then, Baal HaSulam and Rabash write, due to your participation in the group, you would draw the Surrounding Light (Ohr Makif) upon yourself, and it would create the properties of bestowal in you, through which you would begin to feel the upper world.
