The virtual congress is stronger than the physical one and is more spiritually oriented. After all, we went to physical congresses to sing, dance, jump together, talk with friends, and feel ourselves in a huge hall surrounded by several thousand people.
But would this illusion of connection brought by a physical connection be closer to spirituality than when we sit each behind our screen and are forced to build a connection from heart to heart? After all, we have no other choice. The material world is ending, we are leaving the corporeal world, and I do not know if we will ever return to physical meetings.
The Creator takes us further because we are a new generation, the last generation, the first spiritual one, and therefore, we must rise above corporeality whether we want it or not. You can see the exercises given to us from above.
Therefore, the congress should become an opportunity for us for spiritual and not material connection as it was in previous congresses.
We need to convince each other to unite even more in a spiritual form, in inner feelings and to send a message from our heart to the heart of a friend about our desire to unite with him. Only by connecting hearts can we restore the structure of man, Adam, the one common soul within which the eternal light will be revealed. This state will be the end of the correction (Gmar Tikkun).
Therefore, for us to be at a virtual congress means to be at a spiritual congress, an internal one. The Creator took away the opportunity to hold such physical congresses like in previous years in order to advance us. I do not regret that today we do not have the possibility of gathering in the great hall and seeing each other face to face. Faces are not important to me—hearts and desires are important. Let’s move on to more spiritual actions.
We come to the virtual congress in order to make a special attack on connection and unite into one desire called Adam, which means like the Creator.
Every day a lesson can be like a mini-congress, but it is still different from such special events that happen every few months.
We need to understand that the conditions are given to us from above, and we are obliged to accept them above reason even if we do not understand them. It is in the conditions of a virtual congress that we must make every effort to connect, as Rabash writes: so that “the outstretched land for many miles will not stand between us.”
I warn you: it is very important not to miss this chance and make an effort together. Individual efforts are not enough; we need to bring ourselves all together to a global connection and from it to one common prayer to the Creator. And then the heavens will open.
