The congress is designed to absorb all the tens, the entire world Kli, to absorb opinions, feelings—everything that is in all our friends, and not that I come along with my ten, sit down at the table with a sign: “This is the Italian group, here is its table.”
What difference does it make if I sit here or at my home in Rome or elsewhere. I have to mix with everyone, to feel their spirit and life as much as possible, and in this measure I will advance.
Our progress depends on how we mutually intermingle with each other; this is our strength—not each of us separately, but jointly!
So, let one part come here and another part remain there, there is no difference; the main thing is that I constantly try to absorb the impressions of all the friends, their love, their feelings, and their aspirations to the goal. I need these forces.
