Rabash, “Love of Friends – 2”: By which substance can one be brought to acquire a new quality that he must bestow, and that reception for self is faulty? This is against nature! Though at times, one receives a thought and desire that he must abandon self-love, which comes to us by hearing of it from friends and books, it is a very small force, which does not always shine for us…
A person, making timid attempts to get away from the power of the ego, may desire, scream, and pray, but this is all within the ego, inside his own cell. I remember how I wept from despair and Rabash laughed in my face. There are various challenges and moments.
This is all given to a person so that in the end one will realize that nothing is solved by the person alone. Everything is solved only by revering the group, and this is possible only with the help of the upper Light.
When joining the group, you do everything that it needs, you realize all your strength, and you do so in order to gather your friends together and make a vessel of them for the revelation of the Creator.
Question: It turns out that the influence of Kabbalistic books and sages are insufficient; we also need a group?
Answer: Of course. In the individual form, nothing happens. The influence of books on each of us is only necessary to awaken a person.
This is the preliminary information, the preliminary pressure on the person, which pushes him to the goal. Realization comes later, at a “mature age,” when a person is already in the group for several years, studies, communicates with his friends, and acquires some concepts and contacts. He masters the lexicon, a certain literature, because he must absorb it all.
