Question: In Rabash’s articles, it is written that the goal of the group is to investigate and practically check its attitude to a neighbor.
If I want to attain the property of the Creator, where can I check it? Only in the group? And how do I know that the property of the Creator is a property of bestowal?
Answer: We study this from the materials of Kabbalists: do everything possible to connect with each other, somehow organize ourselves into one whole in completion to each other, so that in communication with each other we begin to feel that each of us is dissolved in the group and disappears in it.
Instead, in the center of our circle, in the center of the ten, a new entity arises: a common desire, a common aspiration, a common goal, a common connection between us. Then through this state we begin to feel the revelation of the Creator.
Question: Is the goal of the group is to develop pride in a person that he belongs to it?
Answer: Certainly. Pride regarding a special group, a special purpose, a special idea in the world.
Question: Isn’t pride egoistic?
Answer: It depends on what a person is proud. If one is proud to be acting for the good of humanity, then why not? There is nothing negative in any impulse, in any movement, in any state; it always depends on the goal.
