Therefore, you must first fully connect with the ten. This can only be done if you demand that the Creator gives you the quality of connection, the quality of mercy (Hassadim), so that He will influence you with surrounding Light (Ohr Makif) with the help of which you can unite with your friends.
You use the Creator to unite with your friends and you do it in order to adhere to the Creator. This is a constant triangle.
Therefore, you must act in both ways. That is, use the ten in order to achieve adhesion with the Creator, to give Him pleasure, to work for Him; and on the other hand, unite within the ten. In order to do this, you need to turn to the Creator so that you have the power to unite with the ten. You must constantly spin in this triangle.
The most important thing is to come “from the love of friends to the love of the Creator.” Therefore, use the Creator to achieve love of friends, and from them, from the highest point that can be achieved, the union called love, when you are included into one desire and one intention, you will be directed toward the Creator together as one whole.
