Therefore, we need to make a leap in our perception, transfer it from the personal one, in which everyone feels themselves in this world, to the feeling of existence within the upper force of bestowal and love, which connects all of us together into one vessel, one desire.
All souls extend from the soul of Adam HaRishon because after the sin with the Tree of Knowledge this soul was divided into 600,000 souls. And one light that filled this vessel, this single great desire, was divided into many parts, many bodies, individual desires.
That is why we see this world consisting of billions of people with conflicting, disconnected desires. If we want to reveal the spiritual world, the world of truth, we must connect.
That is why the first lesson of the World Kabbalah Convention 2020 is called “We Have Gathered Here” because there is really nothing else that can be done. If we gather and connect into one soul, as it was before the shattering of Adam HaRishon, before the sin of the Tree of Knowledge, we will return to the upper world, to the spiritual state, becoming again the first man Adam.
Therefore, a person has nothing to do in this world, except to look for ways to connect with others. Of course, this is against our nature, there is nothing more repulsive and opposite to it, and therefore, we do not want to hear about it.
Yet, the Creator, the upper light, influences us again and again with infinite patience, in order to teach us that nothing will change for the better until we decide to connect in a good way.
This is how humanity learns. People do not yet understand what is happening to them, but the impressions of the global crisis and growing problems penetrate our sensory organs, our memory, and whether we want it or not, they make us wiser, more experienced. One day we will be wise enough to agree that there is no way out but to connect.
However, if we study the wisdom of Kabbalah, it becomes clear to us what needs to be done. After all, we reveal not only the disease and its cause, which comes from human egoism, but also the remedy that allows us to escape egoism. If I suffer so much because of it, then I need to get rid of it.
The wisdom of Kabbalah helps us in this, we just need to organize a small group of like-minded people and attract the reforming light. Kabbalah teaches us how our desires can connect with each other and work together, and perform actions called “restriction,” “screen,” “reflected light,” “Zivug de Hakaa” (coupling while striking), and “reception for the sake of bestowal.”
By studying what happens in our desires, we gradually correct ourselves. When we learn and talk about it, the force that gradually changes us is shining upon us.
As it is written, “Penny by penny joins into a great amount.” We have a system that can include us in itself, connect us, and draw the reforming light that will influence us. Even if we do not really want it now, in the end, we will demand that the force of bestowal, altruistic relationships above our egoism, will be revealed between us.
All souls come from the one soul of Adam created by the Creator. After Adam‘s sin with the Tree of Knowledge, that is, after the shattering of this single desire, which ceased to be like the Creator losing its altruistic intention and becoming egoistic, it was divided into 600,000 private souls.
The one light that filled Adam HaRishon in the Garden of Eden, that is, in the state when he was connected into one soul and held within himself the force of bestowal, Bina, disappeared after the shattering, and only a tiny spark of it remained in each part.
Now, when we find ourselves inside bodies that were added to the broken parts of the soul, we feel the inclination to connect all the spiritual sparks together. That is why we are gathering and working on our connection, thus bringing back the upper light that will shine within us.
When the light returns, it becomes 620 times stronger than before because we are acting against the distance that appeared between us and therefore, we reach adhesion with the upper force, with the Creator.
One common desire was on the degree of Bina, which is called the soul and when it shattered it fell down to the degree of Malchut. We need to collect all the particles that fell into Malchut and raise them to Bina, the Garden of Eden. Malchut is called this world and Bina is called the next world.
Therefore, through our connection, we must raise ourselves from this world, in which we feel ourselves now to the future world, to the degree of Bina, where we will feel our existence as eternal, perfect without any hardships and problems, all of us together, permeated with the force of bestowal and love for each other.
The upper light intensifies its glow all the time, and when we feel this illumination from the spiritual force of bestowal and love, we feel more and more opposite to it. It turns out that every day we feel worse and worse, the world becomes more and more corrupted. There is nothing left but to correct ourselves and become like the force of bestowal that shines upon us from above.
That is why we see this world in crisis, helpless, and not understanding what is happening. Perhaps tomorrow all the volcanoes on earth will wake up and start spewing billions of tons of ash into the atmosphere so that we will not see the sun. The world will freeze and sink into darkness.
We ourselves activate these forces because we live in an integral system and we must know how to bring the forces of nature into balance. If we become kind to each other, then nature will become kinder to us.
There is no other way to influence inanimate matter, plants and animals, these forces in nature, if not through a human. A person is a thought, an intention. The physical body is just an animal, but by our attitude toward each other, we can elevate ourselves to a higher degree: from animalistic level to human level. The human being, “Adam” means “similar to the Creator.”
Therefore, we must understand that all the disasters and problems in the world are sent specifically to oblige us to move and begin to put the world in order, establishing a balance in it. To do this, we just need to get closer to each other and work on your egoism.
Then from the human level, from the highest level of nature, we will oblige all the other forces of nature that are below us on the animal, vegetative, and inanimate levels to come into balance, and the whole world will find peace and happiness.
The state of our world Bnei Baruch group is exceptional; after all, out of all the billions of individual souls, we were chosen to be in the system of Israel, that is, the system directed “straight to the Creator,” which pulls all of humanity to correction.
