Question: 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.
