An Opportunity to Rise above Ego

934Question: You write that a group is a lens that focuses light. What does that mean?

Answer: In order to begin to feel the true nature and the Creator as its source, we need to rise above our egoism. In order to receive an opportunity to rise above the ego, we need some kind of strength, resources, and means. Therefore we are given a chance to gather in a group and start trying to rise together with it.

In the group you can see to what extent you are an egoist, how much you have to change yourself from the desire to receive to the desire to bestow, how much you make excuses for yourself, are selfish or, on the contrary, you try to annul yourself, to subjugate yourself to the group and so on. Practically all Kabbalists write about this.

It is precisely in this way that a person can reduce his egoism, develop qualities similar to the Creator in himself, and raise himself above ego in order to really begin feeling the upper nature.
