Question: How should we come out of the daily Kabbalah lesson in order to continue the internal work during the rest of the day?
Answer: I receive everything from Above and I should prepare myself for the maximal independent clarification. Every state should be divided into two parts. On the one hand, it comes from the Creator and I don’t want to spoil it with my desires, thoughts, and feelings. On the other hand, I understand that there is nothing to feel except my own vessels. So how do I do it?
The assessment can be done only in one way: comparing one feeling to another, comparing one intention to another. In order to not be biased, I should always calibrate myself according to a certain standard, according to the group. So I should make efforts to be incorporated with the general spirit of the group, and in relation to it, I should check: Do I feel good or do I feel bad, and how I do interpret whether it’s good or bad so that I will advance?
I constantly clarify things internally, demanding the reforming Light through the group, trying to clarify things with its help so that I will feel myself in the opposite state. In order to do that, I need to try and justify the Creator first, even if I feel bad. Then I try to rise together with the intention to the good state, not for pleasure, but because I resemble the Creator according to equivalence of form. After all, His goal is to do good to his created beings.
Thus I end my clarification. And this is how it happens each time.
