Question: You said that at the convention a person should not delve into himself, but should imagine that we are all connected already. But what should I do if I am overcome by critical thoughts? How can I get rid of them?
Answer: The convention is one big friends’ assembly, meaning an unceasing influence of the environment, the most powerful of all the possible ones that have ever taken place.
And if we see from Kabbalists’s articles that the most important thing is the influence of the environment, then we can assess the importance of such a great assembly that we are getting together at physically, while the whole world is joining us virtually, meaning people who are together with us.
We must only prepare for this gathering the right way. We have 30 days left, and that is a lot of time. If each of us prepares correctly during this time, as well as all of us together, then we will attain a very serious influence of the environment on every person. This happens to such an extent that the feeling of realization of evil can develop in a person to such great proportions that he will hate his receiving nature and will desire to come out of it, which is called the exodus from Egypt.
He will desire to attain bestowal, meaning he will raise his Malchut into Bina, will desire to join bestowal to the neighbor. Who are these neighbors? This is the most general level of Bina where we all dwell in bestowal. If a person aspires to this, then he can temporarily or even permanently enter the spiritual reality, bestowal in an initial measure. This will already be his first spiritual experience.
Everything depends on the might of the Light that reforms, which depends entirely on how a person adjusts himself in relation to the environment: How much he values this environment and its ability to influence him. Let him not come with scorn and criticism to all the others, but only with great hope that the Creator will now give him the opportunity to use the environment in order to rise above his nature. Then he will immediately feel spirituality!
Our task is to prepare for this event well as it might be the most important one in our lives, a turning point from our dark state to a state full of Light.
