Question: The life of an embryo depends on the umbilical cord. And this, as we know from Kabbalah, is the group. So just as a mother feeds her child through the umbilical cord, does the Creator develop a person through a group?
Answer: In general, yes through the surrounding society. It can be a small group, or it can be a large environment, i.e., still, vegetative, and animate nature and all of humanity. As a result, this is all a system called “one soul.”
Through the environment, a person receives all the forces descending from above. It turns out that he is at the bottom of this chain, through which the influence passes from its root—the Creator.
So, a large environment is the whole world;, a smaller environment is relatives and work colleagues. And there are also like-minded people who, just like you, want to advance in the spiritual. It is they who are important because in connection with them you awaken the upper force so that it will exert its influence on you and raise you.
The rest of the environment are parts of the same soul that are not yet directly involved in the spiritual, but gradually you will see how they together with you create this common system called “one soul.”
