“The Light and the Sun,” VeYechi: The main point regarding the assembly is that we should all be united and that everyone should ask for one thing only, to find the Creator, since the Shechina resides among a group of ten. Of course, if there are more than ten, then the Shechina will certainly be revealed. And each one can join his friend and listen to how he should worship the Creator and to find the Creator.
And he should annul himself before his friend and so should his friend before him and so should everyone. And so if this is the intention of the assembly, then more than the calf wants to suckle, the cow wants to feed him, and thus the Creator comes closer to them and is with them and all the salvations and the blessings and the good bestowal from the source of mercy, and the great mercy and the benevolence are revealed upon the assembly of Israel.
Everything depends on the connection, on the correction of the shattering, on the correction of the sin of the “Tree of Knowledge.” This is all our work by which we become Adam, which means the one figure that resembles (Domeh) the Creator, one soul, one vessel. With the help of the friends, we overcome the resistance of our ego, draw the Light that Reforms, and thus advance.
We see that our advancement is only due to the connection and is fulfilled in the connection, in the point where we feel the crisis and where the repulsion, the hatred, the cooling down, the mutual disgust is revealed. It is always a problem to locate this point because we avoid it, forget it, and are in a state of numbness.
It’s in that central point where we really have to be connected that all our feelings disappear! All our sensors and our senses cease to work there. It’s as if we discover and enter a void where there isn’t even hate, but where all the feelings simply disappear. Thus we gradually discover the spiritual space that we have to fill by our connection.
