Answer: We ask for the Light that is contained in the depth of our collective power, our common desire, to be revealed. We seek the revelation of the Light! I don’t know what the Surrounding Light is. The Surrounding, inner, outer, Nekudot (points representing vowels ), Taamim (flavors), I don’t know the difference between them; I only know that if we manage to reach unity between us in some small degree, we will be able to unveil the Light concealed within this unity.
Therefore, I apply pressure to our oneness as I see it in order to find the Light in it. What is the Light? It is the property of bestowal! I wish to have the property of bestowal revealed between us. There is a common desire where all desires are gathered in one, all our points in the hearts, and I wish to unveil the Light resting in it, the Light of oneness, mutual guarantee, and love.
I don’t assess the spiritual rungs in it yet but just wish to find spirituality, to uncover the Light, the mutual attribute of bestowal, the Creator, in order to delight Him. It is as if I have a little child and think about how to make him happy, what to buy him, what present to give him. I think and care about it. In the same way, I think about the Creator whom I wish to find in the connection between us; therefore, our unity is the place where I can reveal the Creator revealed and the state in which I can bring Him pleasure.
