There is a special power in the adhesion of friends. Since views and thoughts pass from one to the other through the adhesion between them, each is mingled with the power of the other, and by that each person in the group has the power of the entire society (Rabash, Article No. 14, (1988) “The Need for Love of Friends”).
Naturally I will not be able to reveal the Creator and the upper world, and I will remain in my lonely, disconnected state, and will feel only my personal inner egoism, that is, our world.
There is a special power (a special exceptional result) in the adhesion of friends. Indeed, due to their merging, views and thoughts pass from one to the other, i.e., unite in them.
Therefore when everyone wants to be united with his friends, the streams of upper light pass through them, which unite in them. And everyone, except for his little egoism, receives influence from everyone else and already consists of the qualities and thoughts of the whole group.
Each of them and all of them together have a mutual, united, combined Kli, a vessel, in which the Creator then reveals Himself.
Each is mingled with the power of the other, and by that each person in the group has the power of the entire society. That is, our advancement is based and depends only on our unity. Not from anything else!
You may know perfectly well what is written in books, you may be a great Kabbalah scholar-theorist, but you will never become a practitioner if you do not have a group, if you do not unite with everyone. This is stated in the article “The Arvut – Mutual Guarantee” and other articles by Baal HaSulam and Rabash.
You cannot do anything. We are created as egoists, separated from each other. If we rise above our individual egoism, then in each of us we create such conditions that we can reveal the upper world.
Our advancement is based and depends only on our connection. We reveal the upper world within it, meaning we reveal the Creator. And the magnitude of the connection forms a spiritual Kli, our common soul.
Everything is determined only by our connection. This is the most important thing, and I would say the only one. But on the other hand, the main and determining factor is the magnitude, power, and strength of our connection.
