Question: You said that one needs to lose oneself in the friends. How can this be done?
Answer: Losing yourself among friends is, of course, not easy, but this is what we must do. It is when your egoism disappears, and you feel only your friends but not yourself.
Rabash writes about this in his Letter 8: “I simply exit the corporeal vessels and it seems to me that there is no reality in the world except my friends and I. After that, even the ‘I’ is cancelled and is immersed, mingled in my friends, until I stand and declare that there is no reality in the world—only the friends.” He has such a letter, and it is worth reading it.
