We can only advance through the fact that we unite more and more. We seem to be sitting in a funicular car that goes up a mountain. To the extent that we unite, the funicular goes up and then stops because it used up all our fuel. We unite again, the funicular takes us up a little more.
The work consists not in breaking forward, but in uniting more and more, breaking through to inner union, and then the Creator will lift us up from Sefira to Sefira, from Partzuf to Partzuf, until we reach the end of correction.
All work goes on only within the ten, and the promotion is only due to the strengthening of the connection between us.
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 10/7/20, “Sukkot“
