Answer: Good is what I do above my egoism. This means I must receive Light from above to rise above my ego and carry out an action that is directed against it.
Without receiving the reforming Light, I cannot rise above the ego and perform good deeds. I need contact with the Light. To do this I must unite with friends in a group to ask for the upper Light through the center of the group and receive it. Only then can I act.
I invest efforts to be in the group, and according to the degree of effort, I get the opportunity to bestow.
Without revealing the Creator, the Light, a person cannot perform a good deed because the Light is the property of bestowal, and it is given to a person even before he begins to discover the Creator.
Revealing the Creator means attaining the system, the ten Sefirot, which are understandable to a person, and in them HaVaYaH (the four-letter name of the Creator) is revealed.
