Answer: If a person carries out what is written in the wisdom of Kabbalah—meaning that he works in a group correctly, making an effort to connect with his friends in order to attract the Upper Light—this means that he is going in the right direction.
With a good connection that is created between him and his friend, he discovers the system of higher management because everything that there is in creation is discovered between ten friends, only in miniature form. Their connection is built like a hologram. There is one big picture within which it is possible to take out some part and see the full picture within it, but on a smaller scale.
In the same manner, we take a group that is composed of ten people (ten small Sefirot), and they attain everything that exists in creation within it, but in a small form. Certainly, we don’t see details and particulars there, but if we join an additional group of ten with this group of ten, our field of vision will grow, and in this manner we can expand the perception of our reality. Our task is to discover the system of creation.
Question: Did you study in a group of ten?
Answer: I learned through a different method, one on one with my teacher. This was a different system through which, in its time, it was possible to prepare a person to continue the work. Studying alone is much more difficult and complicated than studying in a group, but this was necessary because this made it possible for me to acquire the training method.
Today, there is no longer a need for this method. I am sure that I was the last who received knowledge from his teacher like this, whereas now the world has crystallized as an integral system so that starting from our generation and on solitary Kabbalists are not required.
