These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the (houses of) the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the entrance of the tent of meeting. And they made an end of dividing the land. (Joshua 19:51)
The common desire that the Creator created and attracts to Himself so that it can attain Him should work the same way as the Creator, on the quality of bestowal and love, and must act the same way as we do in the group. When we unite in a group we can understand how we relate to the Creator with the help of our common desire, intention, practice, and experience.
It turns out that without realizing this connection, we will not be able to turn to the Creator. We won’t even know what to address and how to address it. Therefore each tribe must work on its part in order to gather and turn to the Creator precisely from its common collective desire. And then they will all unite together into a common nation.
A person should sort out all his desires and build them in such a way that he starts with small desires, and then with their help moves to all the big ones so that they are directed to the connection between him and others. And then based on this state, from these actions, from this experience, he can already understand how to turn to the Creator.
Question: What does “small desires” mean?
Answer: These are minor egoistic desires that I can handle. And there are those with which I am not able to work yet and I know that I cannot. But it is precisely because I work with small desires that I get closer to big ones.
