First of all, you need to be integrated in your personal ten and only then in the entire world Kli. My ten is my personal Kli that I cannot exit, with whom I am connected, and in whom must invest myself. It is like a pacifier for a baby; in grabbing it, he instantly calms down and becomes himself.
This is how we should feel our ten, as if without it we do not exist and cannot do anything. This is my shield, the umbilical cord connecting me with Adam HaRishon, with the general system of all worlds. By integrating in my ten, through it, like that umbilical cord, I connect to the common soul of Adam HaRishon, and the Creator is revealed through it.
During the congress, I received a great desire from the big Kli, feeling the whole world. I must now bring all this intensity to my personal ten. Every friend in my ten is obliged to bring his or her impressions of the big Kli that was at the European congress. From all these impressions, our ten seemed to swell and become larger, and also feel a great connection with the world Kli.
This will happen every time after congresses: expansion and contraction, expansion and contraction, thanks to which we will grow.1
With all the impressions I received from the world Kli, I am now in my ten confused and I must again find unity and connection in it. But this will already be a different connection because each of us comes with the impression of the big Kli, as if inflated, and therefore we must re-work on our connection.
The expansion has occurred, and now it must be converted into contraction so that our new connection is much more powerful than the previous one, with deeper internal qualities. It was as if ten children had joined before, and now it is already ten teenagers, and then there will be ten adults. Each time a new quality of connection is achieved due to the fact that from the expansion we return to contraction. With contraction, we seem to return to the same state, but at a higher level.
The permanent ten is my shield, my beloved pacifier for the baby, without which I do not exist. In the spiritual world, my ten is my passport.2

Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What is Halacha?“
Halacha is how a person progresses from his current state to a state of similarity with the Creator, i.e., to a state with an intention to bestow, adhered to the Creator according to the force of bestowal that the person acquires.
The person’s ultimate goal in life is to become like the Creator.
Halachot are the laws that the person needs to observe in order to become like the Creator.
Question: If the reality I feel is only a reaction within me, then how can I feel something outside of this reaction?
Answer: You cannot. It is impossible. We always feel only ourselves, our reaction to something that is happening and nothing more.
To the extent that we are like the thing that is happening, we feel it based on our reaction.
How do we attain the Creator? We must create such qualities in ourselves called “the Creator,” and then we will understand and feel Him. Only in this way.
Regarding anything we feel, the Kli (vessel) feels only what it feels within itself and nothing else.

New Life #282 – Social Psychology in the Next Generation, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
A nonlinear, circular, and integral brain develops in a person who feels others as oneself. We are egoists and need counselling to deal with related tension and stress. A good counselor understands the interior of a person and helps that person achieve balance with the world around him or her. Integral psychology is built on knowing the whole of nature and humanity’s part in this single system. We require education in a group rather than treatment. In order to engage in and explore this interconnected system, we need integral senses and must feel humanity as a single body.
