Advancement is only possible in the ten. I see everything through my egoism, and therefore, everything depends on how I correct it. That is why the Creator broke the common soul of Adam HaRishon into pieces so that I could work and get closer to my friends despite my egoism and correct my perception.
Friends will enter my heart, and I will see that behind each of them is the Creator. They appear before me as my corrected qualities, but I see them corrupted in my egoism. If I try to bring them right into my heart, I will correct myself.
I am the only one who needs to correct myself, my attitude to the ten, to the world, to the whole reality, and through it to the Creator.
The Creator gives me the friends and says: “Choose them, this is your good fate, through them you will reveal your soul.” And I must accept this fate and unite my friends together in my heart and mind. This will mean that I have chosen the good fate and attained a soul.
If I calibrate myself to be good to my friends and through them to the Creator, then I tune myself as a musical instrument, like guitar strings, achieve complete harmony in their sound. This is how I must calibrate myself to be in tune with the group and start playing on it as one common desire, one soul.
In this way, we will be able to put together our common prayer, like King David who wrote his Psalms combining in them the desires of all the people of Israel. We are talking about internal connection and not external actions. External actions only distract us and slow down our correction.
