If I rise above the claims of egoism, which convince me that this work is meaningless and the spiritual path is not for me, then it means that I am going above reason. And so, “penny by penny joins in a great amount”; that is, all the overcoming accumulates to a certain measure necessary in order to become a vessel for receiving the upper light.
It is in this form that we advance and the degree of connection between the friends is very important here. After all, in states of weakness, a person will not find any strength, desire, or awakening that is capable of lifting or stimulating him at least a little. Additional strength can only come from connection with the friends.
We need to understand that we have to receive all the strength to advance from the group and from nowhere else. There are only two options: either from egoism or from connection in the group. These are the only levers available in our system. Therefore if we want to advance toward the final correction, we must try to connect more and more, as much as possible in the ten, and receive strength for awakening and unification from there.
And then again and again, extract everything from there. Even when it seems that there are no resources left, you still squeeze out strength from there as if you are scraping the last crumbs from the bottom of the pan. This is how you need to try to receive strength to unite from the group. After all, this is what the real work that moves us forward should be.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 8/8/22, “For Every Penny Joins Into a Great Amount”
Answer: The right side is the side of perfection and the left side is imperfection.
Even in communication with each other, we always say: “You are right (right side).” And the left, on the contrary, is the flawed side. Therefore, in Hebrew, writing begins on the right side because everything comes from the Creator right to left.
This is all an expression of the relationship with the Creator since this is all that language conveys.

Answer: The fact is that an ordinary person who receives various influences from the light that fills everything, feels himself in a certain world. Inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human images emerge in him, and he exists among these images.
A person who has raised himself to feeling the light itself and not its consequences feels, in addition to inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human nature, also the light, that is, the influence of a higher level on himself and on nature.
From the desire to attain the meaning of creation, the source of creation, the Creator, and himself relative to the Creator, he feels the cause of what is happening, not just consequences. This gives him the opportunity to attain the meaning of existence, the meaning of life, and to change this meaning.
From KabTV’s “Spiritual States” 7/19/22
The French president opened the door to increased military spending by re-evaluating the military planning law and his aim to put the country on a war-economy. Turkey’s President Erdogan and Greece are disputing Greece’s arming some Aegean islands. Germany approved 100 Billion Euro revamp of its army. Poland is rearming actively and quickly. Japan doubled its military budget. And I’m not even talking about South Korea, North Korea.
All the time you say: “Unite!” The world says: “We will arm ourselves!” Where are we going?
Answer: I believe that we are moving toward a normal world. The world is beginning to realize that it must look at itself soberly. Meaning to arm, defend, and soberly treat those who bully. And then there will be peace in the world.
I believe that everyone should be responsible for their own security, and everyone together should be responsible for the common security.
Question: What about all the calls for peace, then?
Answer: And then there will be calls for peace. Then they will actually work. How else? Our whole world is built on egoism; therefore, as long as there is no umbrella over egoism—in Kabbalah it is called a screen—nothing will happen.
Question: But this way we will get to the point where it will continue, modernize?
Answer: No, it will not continue. In fact, the aggressors are permanent. And they see what is against them, that they will not be allowed to play out, and therefore, they will shrink.
Question: Let’s say everyone sees that it is not worth bullying. And then what?
Answer: Then it will still be necessary to move toward the realization that the world should bring itself to life not from the threat of mutual destruction or such but from the fact that it needs to realize the movement toward peace, toward balance, tranquility.
Question: How does it realize this if it feels that the enemy is in front of it all the time and is rearming?
Answer: The enemy will also see that there is such a thing in front of him that is not reacting.
Question: When will we get to the point where they will say: “Stop! We have scared each other enough, now we need to slowly negotiate and turn around”?
Answer: Everyone will understand that the future of the world is in cooperation.
Question: After they become equal in strength?
Answer: No! Not equal in strength. The state of the people must change internally. They have to go through this transformation. And then they will stop scaring others and stop thinking they are exceptional.
Question: The moment will come when they will begin to disarm little by little?
Answer: Of course! It will not make sense. Thus, the world will come to the need for cooperation. And then there will really be unity.
