Question: The work in the group becomes tasteless without dissemination. But the moment we approach dissemination there are immediate conflicts and arguments. How can we disseminate and keep the unity in the group at the same time?
Answer: Of course we cannot live without dissemination. It’s like a family without kids. How much can you learn and study? Naturally there is a need for something fresh and new, some other news, like a couple that constantly engages in just themselves suddenly feels a need to have a child. So there has to be the right combination between studying and dissemination. We must never forget about the study!
The study changes according to what we engage in. Dissemination is the most important thing for our advancement, since we grow by transmitting the Light through us to the public. Otherwise we would remain in the state of Hafetz Hesed, when we actually don’t need anything. So it is dissemination that primarily determines our personal spiritual growth.
On the other hand, by engaging in dissemination, we also need to look for materials that will help us both theoretically and practically to expand and to deepen our dissemination. We have to locate the necessary materials and accordingly design our study.
According to our dissemination we study the material differently and find the parts that are relevant for our times, either from The Book of Zohar or from Talmud Eser Sefirot, when we choose certain articles by Baal HaSulam. This means that we actually choose the material that relates to dissemination and that helps us.
