Answer: The groups that are remaining at home have to understand that they’re not staying home, they’re not overboard. In the spiritual world, there is no distance, time, or physical objects that separate us. The spiritual world is a field where closeness in spiritual qualities determines how close you are to a person. We have to aspire to be as close as possible to one another.
Therefore, if we’re doing the same thing, if we feel connected, if we study under the guidance of one teacher and carry out the same instructions, and if we aspire to sense our mutual connection worldwide, then thanks to the spiritual and corporeal differences between us, and as a result of our connection above those differences, we build a strong, spiritual vessel or Kli.
The strength of the spiritual vessel is determined precisely by the difference between the egoistic desires within it and by the power of the connection above them.
