People At War

laitman_934Zohar For All, “Aharei Mot,” 65: How good and how pleasant. These are the friends, as they sit together inseparably. At first, they seem like people at war, wishing to kill each other. Then they revert back to a state of brotherly love.

By studying Kabbalah and striving to unite in the ten, we begin to feel how separated we are from each other, how opposite we are.

At that, when trying to connect in the ten, we receive something for a while. But as soon as we reach some good state of connection, there is an immediate breaking, cooling, distance, and fog between us, to the point we do not want to look at each other or talk to each other.

And again, we need to work to connect together. After all, if we want to receive the Creator’s help—and without this help we will not advance—we must be together in one system.

So, we need to work on ourselves again. The importance of the goal, the importance of attaining the Creator, the importance of achieving the opening of the soul determines our aspiration for each other. In the name of this, we begin to draw closer, and we again move forward until the next breaking.

So, we are constantly moving toward the goal: rise-fall, break; gentle rise-sharp fall, and so many times.
