In the material network it’s we that are important. Humanity thinks that by building such a network, we advance. But every time we attain unity, we reveal the inner breakage of egoistic unity—ushering in war and misery. Egoistic unity is required to recognize its harm.
If one remembers the “condition for the right appeal to the Creator,” that he can’t ask for himself since that’s selfish and not for the group, he evokes the Creator’s “backward” reply, harming himself. But the Creator’s backward side also gradually teaches one the right appeal..
Hence beware of appealing to the Creator before you arrange your relationship with the group, aim yourself at unity, see everyone as one whole. Only by imagining that you connect all the hearts can you turn to the Creator from that single heart. That will be the right prayer.
Don’t think that the condition “love your neighbor as yourself” is carried out by upper light only at the end of correction. All our work starts with this effort, and proper actions and appeals to the Creator are built only upon it, through all 125 degrees—and He corrects it!
Building relationships of mutual guarantee in a 10, we start to feel the net connecting us, which turns into 10 Sefirot, a spiritual Parztuf.
That’s how we fulfill the condition for revealing upper light, the Creator’s manifestation in creation, in the ten as in one single whole.
Although we don’t uphold mutual guarantee, from above we are treated as if we uphold and transgress it, as one body (Partzuf of Adam). If one person transgresses, everyone is held liable since everyone is in one boat. Hence one must always ask for everyone rather than for oneself
Our time is characterized by aggression by previously persecuted color-, sex- and ethnic-minorities toward their former persecutors. This leads to violence.
Kabbalah advises: “Love will cover all sins”—we must develop only love. Otherwise lawlessness and violence will prevail!
Several EU countries (and Trump!) refused to sign UN’s treaty on “orderly” migration since it leads to an influx of illegals and undermines their sovereignty.A coalition has formed in EU opposing Germany’s and France’s globalist obsession. A war of pro- and anti-globalists is coming.
Before Trump, US policy was up to the world’s financial elite, in control of world economy. Since 2008 it’s clear we can’t keep living by financiers’ laws. The alternative: capitalistic progress, national production, duties.
What’s ahead: Trump’s victory or America’s fragmentation?
If there was no darkness, we wouldn’t feel the light. Hence darkness and light have to exist simultaneously, as two opposite sides of one phenomenon. Otherwise we wouldn’t discern reality or feel that we exist. Our existence is based on the contrast of light and darkness.
All “bad” states during the day come only to give us a chance to discern light on their background. Light is the quality of bestowal, a good attitude to the friend for the sake of the common goal, not for self-profit. Darkness to me is the background to discern light, unity, Creator.
Otherwise we don’t correspond to the spiritual network, and it will pressure and push us to unity.
The right connection always goes to/from the Creator through the group: not directly from me to the friend, but to build the soul’s Partzuf out of ten or as many as the Creator brings to the group.
… the place of the Creator’s revelation. Not IN us but BETWEEN us.
Each one must think only about the common net, the group’s wellbeing, personal responsibility for everyone’s connection. There’s no other spiritual work besides unceasing yearning to unite everyone. These connections between us will become a Kli …
Better not to ask for anything than to ask for me.
Before turning to the Creator, one must sort out his relations with friends on the path of spiritual progress.
If I turn to the Creator for me, an egoist, then I destroy instead of building
My appeal causes good or evil in the world.
We thank for darkness just as light since it’s a necessary condition to reveal the Creator to creatures. If we don’t overcome our reluctance to move, disappointment, thoughts of self-love, i.e., the sensation of darkness as the start of building a Kli, we’ll never become human.
Observance of Torah and Commandments is possible only to the extent of unity; without unity, observance of Torah is impossible. That’s because observance of Torah is in desire, and only to the extent of mutual guarantee (Arvut).
Appreciate darkness, which leads to the goal of creation. See light on the background of darkness.
Darkness is what was created to discern light. Hence dark states are more valuable than light ones. Ego doesn’t want darkness and hence we must be more happy about it than light. Don’t value states by how pleasant they are.
Experience allows us, after going through darkness, to anticipate the upcoming revelation of light.
We can recognize, discern and reveal the quality of the Creator’s light only inasmuch as we attain opposite qualities of darkness.
We must thus undergo all states of darkness, opposite to light.
Practically: I must discern a need for connection-bestowal-love-Creator.
All the wisdom of Kabbalah is about how and what to ask of the Creator.
I ask Him (pray) for changes in me—this is man’s work.
The Creator fulfills my proper requests—this is the Creator’s work (Avodat HaShem).
