The society I see before me is a place where I can form relationships in which I build the system of Malchut of the world of Infinity. Even though rejection and connection are present simultaneously, I connect these two opposite intentions.
I reject everyone, as it is written about the students of Rabbi Shimon, who felt terrible hatred towards each other and at the same time made efforts to connect. But their connection did not cancel out the flame of envy, hatred, lust, and ambition, which previously raged between them.
A big desire to enjoy and the perception of one’s independence also remain in everyone, and connection is achieved above all this. These two lines work together, one after the other. This is because everyone receives from the Light of Infinity in order to fulfill the others, not themselves. This is why their desire remains. This way we preserve the Malchut of the world of Infinity, its entire volume, which every one of us acquires.
We perceive this Malchut in us. Imagine the enormous inner volume that this collective creature, which we are creating by connecting into one whole, perceives within itself. Every one of its six hundred thousand particles feels like it is separated from all the others, and as it rises above this, it connects with them.
Everyone does this! In the end, there are six hundred thousand particles, inside of which everyone acquires the power of six hundred thousand. This is the kind of connection we achieve.
This is why we need to remember that the actions we do in relation to the society, which we see before us, are always realized in two directions. On one hand, they are meant to increase everyone’s individual egoism, which gives rise to the rejection and hatred in the relationships between us. And on the other hand, we must bring ourselves to the biggest possible connection above this egoism and try to grow this way.
We need to perceive these two states as necessary in our development and be ready to accept, experience, and develop them. We need to make rules based on this, which will become laws of existence of the society or our group charter. But all the laws and forms of behavior, the rules we establish, must correspond to the attainment of the final goal so as to guide and direct us towards it.
