The Purpose Of The American Convention

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What is the purpose of the united Americas integral convention?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that our only correction is to connect into one vessel. Its shattering has pulled us apart and so instead of the spiritual world, the spiritual dimension, everyone feels only the spark and the minimal vitality that is called this world. Now in order to return to the feeling of the real world and not the fictitious world, to return to this here and now without waiting for some illusionary existence in the next world, we have to connect. By that we reconstruct the vessel that existed before; we understand, feel, and love in it on a level that is 620 times higher than it was before the shattering.

Thus we attain the Creator and ourselves equivalent to Him, adhered to Him and so on. All this is attained only by connection.

Although we cannot connect, since we are all in an attribute that is opposite from connection, we can summon the Light that Reforms. The Light that used to fill us and that disappeared during the shattering can now come and illuminate on us and connect us. So if we perform actions that draw the Light that Reforms, we connect, and in the connection between us, we discover the upper world, the Creator. This is our work.

This is why we are so happy to be in this convention; understand how important it is, and pin great hopes on it.

We must be sure that no matter what happens, this step is very important. Later all of humanity will also have to go through these changes and today by doing it ourselves, we set an example for them. It is because we are in frameworks of one system together with all of humanity, so what we attain in the connection between us will be passed on to others, to all of humanity, and then suddenly all of humanity will also begin to think that way, without even knowing why.

This means that our work is very important for us and for the whole world.
