Breaking Out Of Egoistic Captivity

942Question: How does the group help a person overcome their egoism?

Answer: We cannot overcome our egoism by ourselves. If we try, we will fall into depression and self-criticism and will experience different states until we understand that only by connecting with others can we ascend above our egoism, above the separation, emptiness, and meaninglessness that pressure us.

A person must run away from himself to the group. Only then will he be able to break out of the egoistic captivity.
From KabTV’s “Fundamentals of Kabbalah” 10/7/18
