Question: Once or twice a month we organize an integral event with planned topics at the public library. Our first event was very active and powerful. But the second time it was less intense. Why does this happen this way?
Answer: This is a sign that you don’t have anything to say to people. You must kindle desires in them, stimulate them through cross-cutting issues, identify “pitfalls” to show them how this method is not simple, how much it touches the deepest strata of the human psyche that has not yet been investigated by us.
This is not just hugging, sitting, and eating together. You must somehow bring them to such a state that they will understand that if they haven’t absorbed this method or mastered it, they cannot live in agreement and harmony with anyone, not even with themselves. All of this must be awakened in them.
I, personally, don’t have the right to do this in my lessons in such a direct method as I do with you because those who study the wisdom of Kabbalah must search within themselves for desires for spirituality. I cannot stretch a spring in them with a key, like in a toy with a spring, so that they will jump from a stimulus, whereas with your audience, indeed you can. Therefore you must.
So, you have to be a little crafty.
