We build the Creator from the desires of our friends connected together, as it is written: “as though you have made Me.” After all, the upper force does not exist on its own but only within our Kli, our desire.
This is why treating the friends as a Kli, as an instrument for revealing the Creator and establishing Him, is the only correct form that allows one to direct oneself to the Creator. This is why it is written: “And from love of friends, one can reach love of the Creator.”
When I assemble all the friends together, I begin to feel the force that includes us all. This inclusive force is a very special, integral force, which is above all the details and is the basis of the entire creation. Creation appears outside of this force and begins to divide, split, and take a discrete form.
However, if we connect in order to reveal between us in the center of the group one single force, then with the same precision that we can connect, with the same resolution, we will discover the Creator as Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Haya, and Yechida. Yechida is already the highest degree of revealing the “One, Unique, and Unified.”
Therefore, it is a big mistake to wait for the Creator to be revealed. We do not need to wait, we need to build Him. This is the difference between religion and Kabbalah. We do not wait for the revelation of the Creator that was not built by us. Only according to our practical participation in connection do we create a place of revelation, we create the Creator.
If we sit with folded hands and wait for the Messiah to come, he will never come. The Messiah is the force that finally pulls us out of the feeling of separation to the feeling of complete adhesion. It pulls us out of the last drop of egoism, which is so small that it is not even visible to the eye but still does not allow us to reveal our unity.
