Question: How can we establish the same attitude towards The Book of Zohar as the attitude we are trying to establish in our workshops? The point is that in the integral education we suddenly feel that we lack a source and if we added The Book of Zohar to the workshop it could raise us to a new level…
Answer: It will happen. We should see The Book of Zohar as the adaptor between the Creator and us. The Creator inserts this book into us, the book opens and builds us, and with its help it is revealed.
The Book of Zohar is a tool. It isn’t a book in the ordinary sense, but a collection of means for discovering the Creator in the created being.
But the book can be revealed only in a group that is ready. The Zohar builds us, but there should be the right preparation for The Book of Zohar to begin to operate.
Question: There is a certain illusion when you sit in front of the book and not in a circle of friends that the study of The Zohar is an individual study. How can we overcome this in order to feel that we are in one circle around The Book of Zohar with the whole global vessel?
Answer: You should speak about it before the lesson. This is called an intention before the study and also during the study. It has to come from the inside. Both the Lights and the vessels are clarified from the inside. No external advice will help here. This is clear.
