While reading The Zohar we have to try to find the contact between us and to feel the upper force in this contact. Our connection will become the vessel for the revelation of the contact with the Creator.
If I try to connect with the friends, I already establish a vessel above reason, since according to my reason, I am not connected to anyone, and I don’t need to be connected to anyone; I am by myself and it’s as if everyone else doesn’t exist. If I believe that the connection between us is more important than me, I already rise above my reason, above my desire.
So even if the connection between us has not reached the level of true bestowal yet, it has already received a certain form above a person’s individual ego. So to this extent, he is already awarded with an illumination from above with the bestowal of the Light.
There is no other means in our world to come near the Light, to become similar to it, to become adapted to it, so that the Light will begin to influence us, but by connecting to others above my reason. This action is already arranged for us so that we can perform it. We can fulfill it in different ways. We have the support of the environment. This means that everything is arranged on the lowest corporeal level: You have friends and a group, so just do it!
No one can claim that he wasn’t given a chance to advance. If a person places himself in the group as the simplest, smallest, most humble member, then by this simple corporeal action he can already begin his spiritual ascent even without a special mind, without feeling, and without any information about the spiritual advancement. He doesn’t have to do anything except serve the group. This is the real form of Malchut of Nukva (the female part of the created being). If she serves, helps, supports, and does her husband’s will, she “buys” her place next to him. We have to do the same with regard to the Creator.
