Collecting The Pieces Of The Common Soul

117Question: It is written in The Book of Zohar: “How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together, as well. ” This means being friends: that at the hour when they sit together, they do not separate from one another.

At first, they seem to be people at war with each other, wanting to kill each other, then again they return to brotherly love. The Creator says about them: “How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together, as well!” But, moreover, the Creator Himself is attentive to their speeches, and He has delight, and He rejoices for them.

How can it be that people who are ready to kill each other, nevertheless, come together and brotherly love arises between them?

Answer: This is really amazing, because we come from one single soul. This system was created as one common desire, one single organism. And then it was deliberately broken into small pieces.

This is similar to how a Lego mosaic is constructed: first, a picture is made, and then a special stamp cuts it into pieces so that children can learn to assemble a picture from its components.

Our common soul is created in a similar way. Since it is broken into the smallest pieces, we must find such a connection between each other, such juxtaposition that all our souls again gather into one big picture, into one single soul.

This one soul is called Adam, from the word “Adomeh—similar” to the Creator. To the extent that we get closer to each other to put together a big picture, we become Adam, human.

That is, the human in us is not our animal body and not our original natural animal inclinations, but it is the measure of our similarity to the Creator.
