Answer: No, not necessarily. Read what you enjoy, what is close to you, so that you will feel that the text is written for you. Basically you don’t have to do it at all. In principle, it does not matter what you read from the true Kabbalistic sources, because the most important thing—is your aspiration to the Light that you feel in your heart.
You will gradually feel that you are getting closer to the Creator in response to your yearning—to feel it above the problems, that are brought by the same force, so that you will turn to Him. After an appeal to Him, the problems disappear, there is a short respite, and again a problem, and then your aspiration to the Creator.
Everything stems from the Creator and everything is solved by getting closer to Him.
Question: Should I unite with the friends if I want to solve a certain problem and then read a book together in order to summon the positive force?
Answer: Yes, the solution to the problem is in the connection with friends, but this doesn’t mean that you are free from solving it on the level of our world.
You cannot solve corporeal problems in a spiritual way only. You have to actually act physically, and the solution will come through your connection with the friends and the Creator.
