When Brothers Are Together

laitman_942On the spiritual path I will always discover how much my group, my group of ten is awesome and terrible.

I don’t agree with any of the friends; I am ready to tear them all to pieces, and together with this, afterward, with the help of the Light that Reforms, we merge to such a degree that there are no limits to our unity. Nothing separates us even by a hair; all of us are welded and consolidated together with one heart.

It is said about this in The Book of Zohar: (Psalms 133:1): Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity also. These are the friends when they sit together and are not separated from each other. From the start they seem like warriors who want to kill each other. And after that they return to being with love and brotherhood. The Creator, what does He say about them? “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity also.” The word “also” comes to include the Shechina (divinity) with them. (Zohar, “Acharei Mot,” Item 64-65, HaSulam Commentary).

The Shechina is the place where the Creator is revealed, the shared desire of the friends, their common heart.

“And not only that, but the Creator listens to their words, and He has satisfaction and is happy with them.”

About this it is said: (Proverbs 10:12) “…love covereth all transgressions.”  In the beginning it is necessary to discover all the oppositions and above them love, the Light, (Ecclesiastes 2:13) “…as far as light excelleth darkness.” Otherwise, without feeling the intensity of the separation first, we don’t feel the intensity of the unity.

We can see the result of this approach when according to the principle of the unity of the Creator, that (Deuteronomy 4:35) “…there is none else beside Him” and He is the “good and beneficent,” we begin to behave differently at work, in the family, with our children, with our neighbors. In general we begin to look at the whole world differently. In our group we hold this line permanently, and in other places as much as possible.

It is necessary to expand the circles of the right relationships to what is around us more and more such that ultimately in all of reality we will see only the Creator who manages everything, sends everything, and finishes everything.
