Therefore, let me remind you the validity of love of friends in spite of everything at this time, for it is upon this that our right to exist depends, and upon this our near-to-come success is measured.
Hence, turn away from all the imaginary engagements and set your hearts on thinking thoughts and devising proper tactics to truly connect your hearts as one (Baal HaSulam, Letter 47).
It is necessary to make all of us such a union that our different feelings, thoughts, motives, and goals, as it were, complement each other, up to one heart, one thought, which will include everything. This state will be called Adam, similar to the Creator.
Question: Is it enough to unite with some of the friends in order to reveal the Creator? Or do you need a complete union of the ten?
Answer: With all the friends who can participate in this, let it be half a dozen, it doesn’t matter. The main thing is that you strive forward together and realize the conditions for the revelation of the Creator. The rest will join when they can.
Question: By what signs can I evaluate the impact of the group on me?
Answer: By the signs that you want to bend your head and get only what your friends think and want and want to only be guided by this.
