Before reading The Book of Zohar, we have to clarify the most important thing for us and to turn it into a plea. If we think correctly, the plea will only be one, and it will be the same for everyone. This happens automatically, by itself. After all, if a person really, very seriously clarifies the most important thing, he arrives at the same plea that the others have. And then it is called a “prayer of the many.”
We don’t even have to ask each other: “What are you thinking about? What are you asking for?” Even if we express our prayer in different words, still in our inner feeling, inner clarification, it really has to be the same plea. This means that inside we feel the desire, the need, for the single, shared form for everyone.
And then this inner deficiency, desire, longing, this inner hunger, is called a “prayer of the many.” Let us try to reach this. For this we also need the Light that Reforms.
