Question: If a friend understands what is the result of his environment, he sees that there are complex conditions and therefore moves away from the work, then what should be the attitude toward him? How can we help him?
Answer: We must do everything to help him, but by normal means: show how much we want him to be with us and to not leave, display how connected we are with each other and how much we realize that without our unification we cannot comprehend and reveal the Creator since He is revealed precisely within our unification as the central point where everything came from and where everything must return to.
We must find out all this together with him and influence him with our thoughts, prayers, and conversations, including with him so that he remains in the group. All the same, he will not go far even if he floats away somewhere for several years.
I told you how the students of Rabash returned, after having left him for 10 to 15 years, and suddenly by coincidence returned one Saturday morning. The door opened and the man entered as if he had just stepped out to pour himself a cup of coffee. He does not feel like he had been away for ten years! How can this be in human society? But in the Kabbalistic group it can. Just like that, I fell back into place. Therefore, we do not need to worry, everyone will come and undergo their corrections. But it is desirable that we help each other.
