Through Envy Of Friends

565.01Rabash, “Concerning Above Reason”: The envy that he feels toward the friends when he sees that they have better qualities than his own. It motivates him to acquire their good qualities, which he doesn’t have and of which he is jealous.

You probably remember how your mother told many of you in your childhood: “Play with this boy and not with that one because you will learn something good from this one and from that one, on the contrary, only bad.”

The problem is that we need envy and to use it properly. We are surrounded by friends who have very good properties for spiritual advancement, but we are not jealous of them. They might even repel us physically, outwardly, or in some other way.

We need to overcome all the rejections in our world in terms of appearance, habits, movements, and everything that can repel us from a friend. The most important thing is to start envying them regarding their goals and capabilities.

Only then will I be able to approach them, attach their aspirations to myself, and accumulate a sufficient number of such desires from my friends so that I will form a whole Kli, vessel. Therefore, envy develops our Kli and allows us to make it large and universal.
From the International Convention “Rising Above Ourselves” 1/8/22, “Deriving the Greatness of the Goal from the Friends” Lesson 4
