Answer: When we try to unite between us in the center of the circle, phenomena of closeness and distancing, closeness and distancing, naturally appear in different attributes, qualities, and quantities.
The most important thing for us is to try to yearn and aspire for this. Actual attainment is less important. The yearning is more important. The Creator responds to our desire and what is important are our efforts and not the fact that we seemingly attain something.
When we make efforts, we must also ask Him, which means include Him in our actions, as a partner. By yearning for the center of the circle and at the same time also asking the Creator to be with me, to help me, to sharpen my senses, to push me toward the friends and the friends toward me, I constantly want to find the center of the circle together with the friends and with the Creator, and the Creator constantly evades us, and we constantly try to find Him.
This is what the search for the spiritual attribute that is not in us comes down to. But it is actually this way when ten egoists try to connect in one point that we reveal it. The spiritual attribute is created in this point between us and we reveal the Creator in it.
