When a person studies Kabbalah, his desires are constantly growing. But this is only for the purpose of giving him the left line, raising in him a corrupted desire to enjoy so that he has something to overcome and something to turn to the Creator with. We need a depth of desire (Aviut) over which we can build the screen and the reflected Light.
We tell the Creator with the reflected Light: “Although You gave us the desire to enjoy, we are building the desire to bestow upon it by restriction, the screen, and the reflected Light. And all this is done with the help of the Light returning to the source called the Torah. The Creator clothes in these corrections in the form of the direct Light, and the Creator merges with the creation.1
We must bring our broken soul to the Creator, but first we need to reveal it. The Creator knows that He broke it and prepared everything, but we need to make this discovery, called the realization of evil. We want to unite in order to reveal the Creator between us and we cannot do it because we are broken. It is necessary to bring this broken vessel of the soul to Him and let Him glue it together! And when He corrects the vessel, He clothes in it.
We must come with this vessel and ask for its correction like a small child in tears would bring his mother a broken plate. There is nothing more to reveal in this world: there was one complete soul and the Creator shattered it. Now we need to detect this shattering and ask Him to correct it and then fill it. There are two kinds of actions that we must evoke: correction and filling.2
The heart is a desire that is initially corrupt, black. As it is written: “For the inclination of man’s heart is evil from his youth.” Therefore, it is necessary to correct it to bestowal so that it loves one’s neighbor. Instead of loving itself, the heart will love others. According to the extent to which a person manages to go outside of himself toward his friends and connect with them by building a common Kli with them, the Creator can clothe in them. This is called a corrected heart.
The heart of one person cannot be corrected. But if a ten is united in their hearts, becoming as one person with one heart, in this way they build their spiritual Kli. In one person there can be no spiritual Kli; you need at least two, and best of all, ten.
It seems to us that it is more difficult to connect ten people than two. But this is not the case. After all, the upper Light comes to the ten in a special format. And if it is less than ten, then it is called: “Why have I come and there is no man,” because it is the ten that is called a Man.
However, even less than ten still draw the Light to themselves but not one because a man alone has no connection with the Light at all.3
We do not yet feel that our egoistic desires are standing between us. We just do not touch each other, we pass by as if we are not connected in any way. This is still far from building a common Kli. The common Kli is built based on the fact that we feel a collision, and above it, a connection. After all, the Creator created the vessel of the soul and broke it. And we need to reveal this shattering, the gap between us, and the way we can reduce this gap by being included in each other. Despite our unwillingness to unite, we nevertheless coerce ourselves to get closer and closer, and then there is a coupling with the help of the Light that reforms.4
The revelation of the Creator to the creatures in this world occurs when within a physical Kabbalistic group, in the union of the hearts, the power of mutual bestowal, the power of faith, the power of Bina, the power of the reflected Light in which the upper force is clothed, the Creator, the illumination of Hochma dressed in the Light of Hassadim is revealed.5
