We still can not tear ourselves away from our desire to enjoy, we have not despaired, and have not cried out from this work in slavery to the Pharaoh. We need to see that we are on the side of egoism in front of an abyss, on the other side of this is freedom from Pharaoh, from thinking about myself, from the constant search for my own benefit. When we realize that we are not able to jump over this abyss, then we will cry out. We need to combine all our efforts in order to feel this common despair.
When we feel that the common egoism keeps us in slavery, prevents us from leaving, and when we want to jump over the abyss and run away from the Pharaoh to become free people and not slaves of egoism, then we will scream. And this cry itself is already liberation.1
Our entire Bnei Baruch world group belongs to that part of the common soul that is now receiving an awakening by the general illumination in the world. Therefore, we gathered and organized a group wishing to reveal the Creator. The Creator brings a person into a group, puts one’s hand on the good fortune, and then the choice is mine: to choose it or not, to follow the path of light or the path of suffering.
We all have one destiny because through our actions in the group we awaken a common spark that should be revealed in our connection with each other as the feeling of the upper force. This feeling is getting closer because with each passing day we are increasingly fulfilling the conditions necessary to feel the Creator together.
It is truly a miracle that happens to us because such a state, such work, has not existed for thousands of years! And although we make small corrections, moving gradually with tiny steps, this is a general correction at the very foundation of creation as opposed to a particular correction of an individual. There are times when individuals start to feel a little spiritual awakening, but this is not a correction. We live in the era of the Messiah, and according to the demand of the time, we must lead a general correction, and pass it on to the people of Israel and all humanity.
This is a much more difficult and gradual path compared to the individual work of the past generations of Kabbalists, but it leads to a genuine correction of creation, of Adam HaRishon. As we advance, we will see how we shall realize the goal of creation.2
The mutual guarantee (Arvut) is the key to success; nothing else is needed. This is the only thing missing in the system of Adam HaRishon in order to connect it back after the breakage. All the parts of the soul are already there, like engine parts that need only to be assembled. The correct order of connection and communication between us is called mutual guarantee. We only need to bring all the details closer to each other and introduce them into the common work. It has nothing to do with the material itself; it is only necessary to establish connections within it.
Everything is resolved in thought. The Creator allows us again and again to feel our separation more and more, and we again try to unite and achieve unity. So, we gradually advance until we receive the full measure.3
