Answer: All the workshop rules are based on principles described by the Kabbalists, starting from The Book of Zohar when ten great Kabbalists gathered together, took shelter in a cave, and wrote this book. From there came the understanding of what the “ten” is, how to unite in it, and what we should do with it. Later, my teacher Rabash described relationships in the ten in great detail, stressing that all the basics of interaction between people in the circle have nothing to do with psychological training.
The statement that truth is born in dispute is absolutely wrong. How can truth be born in dispute if everyone is an egoist, everyone thinks incorrectly, and because they argue out of ten egoistic truths another twenty, thirty, or forty of the same will be born. I have not seen that truth is born in dispute. For this, people must be special, understanding in what way in our limited abilities we can use this principle.
This is completely unacceptable in Kabbalah. There can be no disputes because truth must come to us from the next level of awareness, not from our level! We have nothing to look for within ourselves. It seems to me that the history of humanity has already made it clear to us: we cannot dig out anything good from ourselves.
Therefore, there is no need to search for anything, including any “truth.” We must only assemble ourselves in such a way that we will bring upon ourselves the upper illumination, the upper Light. Then we will succeed.
