Question: The entire Torah is based on the law “love your neighbor as yourself.” Doesn’t it contradict the division of the people of Israel into twelve tribes? You are in one tribe; I am in another one; each tribe has its boundaries, which can’t be crossed, and each one should be in its own place.
Answer: Initially, there is one general structure that can’t be changed, as it is written, “I did not change My HaVaYaH.” We need to restore this construction in its complete form. Therefore, we do not change any part that remained after the shattering. There is a pile of debris from which we need to reassemble the body, like a puzzle.
We do not start to change the pieces of the puzzle and cut their edges in order to fit them into each other. We just need to find a correct connection between them. Each tribe also consists of twelve parts, divided according to the same program.
Imagine that there are two puzzles consisting of 1,000 parts, but the size of one is one meter by one meter and the other is two meters by two meters. Even if the difference is only in the size of the pieces, it is already impossible to combine the pieces of one puzzle with another. It is necessary to fully assemble them each puzzle separately.
Therefore, it is necessary to build the correct connection between the twelve tribes while preserving all the boundaries that exist between them on the current level. Then inside this correct connection, we reveal the force that connects them, which is called the Creator.
We take the pieces of the puzzle and try to connect them. For this we need to attract the Light that returns to the source, which will help us to understand how they should be connected. When all the pieces are connected, this puzzle suddenly begins to glow! The Light that is revealed in the completed puzzle, meaning in the correct connection between all of us, is the Creator.
Question: What should the pieces of the puzzle do in order to connect with each other?
Answer: The pieces of the puzzle must implement the method of Kabbalah: to study and to perform connection exercises. The entire essence of the wisdom of Kabbalah is to connect the pieces of the puzzle of the common soul, one person with another.
