Question: Don’t I belittle my friends if I ask for correction for them?
Answer: By no means. Because none of us can ask for ourselves. This will not work, but will only push a person who prays for himself away from the Creator. And he who asks for others receives first.
Question: When I see my friends uncorrected, how can I exalt them? Is it just through playing, annulling, and praying, or is there some other means?
Answer: As soon as I see the friends as uncorrected, I must be horrified by my properties in which I see them as such, and immediately, proceeding from this, ask the Creator for correction, not in order to correct myself, but in order to see my friends as corrected in my corrected properties. It hurts me.
Question: How do I know if I am trying hard enough to connect in the ten?
Answer: Include yourself in the ten and the ten in yourself so that there is no distance, no lack of thoughts, no lack of desires, and no lack of connection between us, for our connection to be absolute, “face to face” (Panim le Panim).
And then, oddly enough, in this state we will find the Creator because He does not need a place.
