Question: How can I delight the Creator if I don’t feel Him?
Answer: This is why we are given a group and all of humanity. It says: “I dwell among my people.” If I try to delight humanity, my group, then by exiting myself and entering them, I will feel the Creator.
The Creator is felt in the center of the group. When we operate in the group we discover something common in its center: a common desire in which we discover the Creator. It is because the Creator is in the innermost point and His vessel is the common desire: our common intentions and the common desire of the group. In order to be attracted to Him, we need to build another more external layer, which is the whole world.
It is impossible to work only with regards to the Creator since He is concealed. But if I am incorporated into the group and constantly invest in it to such an extent that eventually I want to give myself to the group and melt into it, I discover the Creator within it, because I have already attained the attributes that match Him in some way.
