Rabash, “What to Look For in the Assembly of Friends”: Thus, the friends’ discussions of the greatness of the Creator awaken a desire and yearning to annul before the Creator because he begins to feel longing and desire to bond with the Creator.
This is exactly how we must act: talk more often about the greatness of the Creator because this will make us want to connect with Him more and more. Do not forget this.
Question: How to talk in the group about the greatness of the goal so it is heard?
Answer: Oblige everyone to talk about it and devote time for it every day. Each of you would prepare several sentences about the greatness of the goal, which he or she would read out in front of everyone. This should become a habit for you.
I cannot have the correct greatness of the goal, only that which I receive from my friends. People may be mistaken in thinking that they have greatness of the goal: “Of course I respect the Creator if He exists somewhere. I certainly respect the goal!” And so on.
There is no such thing in a person! It is unnatural.
The real greatness of the goal, the real attainment of the Creator, can be formed in each of us only in the group.
