Question: Baal HaSulam, in the Introduction to the Study of the Ten Sefirot, writes that only while reading the original source do corrective lights act on us. And how do we attract light during a workshop if we don’t read anything?
We take the most vivid passages from there so that they excite us, clash us, and give us the concept of contradictions and on the basis of these materials, we could better study the issues that we touch on.
We by no means teach anything other than the original sources; together we find out what is written in them and pass it through ourselves. In this case, a lot of internal actions are performed.
