The wholeness of the group depends on its adhesion to those who advance and not on those who advance looking backward at the rearguard, at those who are at the end, thinking: “How can we slow down so that the others can catch up with us?” That isn’t right. We should only yearn to advance!
Many are still against integral education and against dissemination: “We study the wisdom of Kabbalah and everything else doesn’t concern us.” Of course, this is their own business, but they should know that they have no connection with me. How do they intend to keep on engaging in spiritual work? If their goal is to know what the books say, they can even learn it by heart, but they will never be able to attain and reveal spirituality!
If they are against our method, then actually they have nothing to look for in the group. I am very serious. All the smart-alecks, all those who only want to study but not to disseminate, can leave. They are not my students and I don’t see them as students.
Let there be a small group but a qualitative one. In spirituality quality is what’s important and not the quantity.
