When I found my teacher in 1980, after a few lessonsI had no doubt that I needed to move closer to him and do everything possible to help him. In his time, conditions were different, there was no Internet, books about Kabbalah were scarce, a real rarity. Since then, 37 years have passed; today there are many books translated into many languages.
Helping the teacher is a very serious incentive for advancement; for this, the student needs to try to resemble the teacher. This is because the “lower face” must aspire to resemble the “upper face,” in the same way that we educate children.
Always try to take an example from the higher and from his attitude toward the world, to the lessons, to dissemination. In this manner, you will advance. This is basically the best incentive for advancement.
