A person who is far away from us should by all means try to pursue the same actions and activities that take place in the main group. It’s desirable that he should find friends like himself to organize gatherings and meals similar to ours and to participate with us in all our events. We sing, and you sing with us; we dance, and you dance; we take part in the lessons, talks, and various events, and you, if it’s possible, physically participate in the same actions.
It’s desirable to free the three days of the convention from your everyday activities, not to be burdened with any problems or be distracted by anything, but to be included in our common thoughts and desires. When you are somewhere else, for instance, in London, try to ensure that the everyday surroundings don’t affect you. You should exclude them as much as possible so that you are in a room, apartment, or house where there are no strangers and nothing but your thoughts and feelings.
It’s in this way that you’ll organize a kind of mini-convention and will be with us by your own efforts and actions. This is identical to your direct presence at the event because by multiplying everything by the distance and your desires for unity, you will enter our common Kli (vessel) with us and feel and receive everything we have.
It’s not important where a person is. If he cannot come, but his heart and soul are with us, the distance does not matter.
