The great Kabbalist, Baal HaSulam, wrote that we are a unique generation because we have to master Kabbalah specifically within the group. Group work began with Baal Shem Tov and gradually continued to develop to this day.
Now we have to begin forming mini-unions within tens, to somehow show the world how we can unite, what we should be aimed at and how to go about it; meaning, we need to give the world an example of what its future would be like.
Question: So the group of people, or we can say the whole of humanity, is the place where the upper force, the Creator, becomes revealed?
Answer: Yes. We have to attain all the worlds while being in this world, in this life.
Question: Can the revelation of the Creator be compared to revealing the force of gravity that we all feel? There is a certain force of gravity between us all on the societal level.
Answer: Yes. But the thing is that we do not feel the upper force because each of us exists in a paticular individual concealment from it.
Thus, we are given the science of Kabbalah that helps everyone reveal it individually, but at the same time, we have to create a certain common entity—a group within which, inside a ten, we can begin to feel our similarity with the upper force.
