A while ago, we began to work in groups of ten and so far there have been many questions as to why such group work has been chosen. It is quite clear that the ten Sefirot are the basis of the spiritual reality and of the corporeal world. However, I still want to explain in greater detail so we will better understand our state today.
The Torah is the eternal order. It is impossible to change it according to time and place. The spiritual laws are fixed and absolute, and our attitude toward the Light that Reforms must be according to the general system. This system doesn’t change since we advance in our ego here in this world as we become more lowly, coarse, and egoistic.
Thus, our state becomes more sensitive and brings us closer to the “recognition of evil,” in the corporeal sense for the time being. However, the principles described in the Torah don’t change and never will. So, anyone who feels that he is aiming straight at the Creator (Yashar El), which means anyone who belongs to Israel, will have to go through the entire process that the Torah tells us about, including the time of the flood, Babylon, the exile in Egypt, the receiving of the Torah before Mt. Sinai, and the wandering in the Sinai desert, until he reaches a desire called Yashar El, the “Land of Israel.”
We are approaching this. The Torah is independent of time in concepts of earlier or later. Everything that is described in it is fulfilled on every level since, on every level, in every spiritual structure, every small or large Partzuf always is made of ten whole Sefirot, a whole HaVaYaH. The only difference is the level, as it is in every drop of semen in reality and in every child and grown up since the individual and the general are equal.
Therefore, we always go through all the states from the beginning to the end in every situation, and the only difference is the intensity of the states that are revealed in us and what we feel in them and understand. All of reality and every state are made of ten Sefirot. So, if we actually could open a certain state, we would enter the level of all of reality.
We advance according to the levels, one HaVaYaH after another, but at the same time, we constantly discover additional subtleties in each HaVaYaH and clarify another part of it. A new, whole formation appears on every level of HaVaYaH since each time there are new clarifications that depend on the level of Aviut (coarseness) that stems from the spiritual root.
Thus, we go through different states during our evolution. You cannot expect them, of course, so the changes that I perform may seem artificial. Suddenly, I tell you that we should split up into groups of ten in our spiritual work as if this thought has come to me by chance. However, I don’t just give you random orders. It is clear that we are advancing in an accurate order, and if you don’t identify it, believe me that I do see it. So, our advancement must be in groups of ten.
