Answer: Because you are strong, you are heroes, you are the concealed righteous.
Actually you don’t have to stay in the same place if you can unite with others and there is no way to organize a group where you live. You don’t have to remain in the place where you live at all costs.
I also moved to live near my teacher. Of course in Israeli standards it wasn’t far but qualitatively it was very meaningful since I had to give up my business, my home, everything, since I couldn’t go on differently.
But it happened two years after I had started studying with him. I wanted to move near him immediately but he didn’t let me do so for two years.
Question: How can we choose the group and the conditions correctly?
Answer: You have to move to a place where there is a good group with good reliable guys so you will really be able to dedicate yourself seriously to the spiritual work.
Besides, there should be reasonable conditions for the family there and a place of work. You have to check all this.
I believe that there is no need to take any chances. But if there is no hope of organizing a group in the place where you live, you should move.
