How Can You Evaluate Yourself?

49.04Question: There is such a thing as judgment day (in Hebrew, Yom Kippur). What does a person judge on this day?

Answer: This day is celebrated as a judgment day purely symbolically. On Yom Kippur a person must consider his own actions and be able to evaluate them as sinful. This is given to special individuals and not even in every generation.

And everything else are just theatrical performances from century to century played out among religious Jews.

Question: Your teacher Rabash says that the word “prayer” (“Tefila“) comes from the verb “LeHitpallel” – “to judge oneself.” From the point of view of Kabbalah is prayer judging?

Answer: Yes. A person judges himself and sees that his actions to some extent were absolutely unlawful, wrong. But this manifests itself only to the extent that he receives a certain fraction of the upper light. And in accordance with this light, with its properties, he can evaluate himself.

234Question: Is it right to pray for the correction of friends when I know that I must first correct myself?

Answer: In order to pray for the friends, you do not need any personal correction. Praying for the friends is already your correction.

Question: It is said that everything is obtained by the power of prayer. What do the words “the power of prayer” mean? How is this power expressed?

Answer: The power of prayer is expressed by the desire. It is the force of the desire to correct ourselves, to become similar, to unite, and to rise.

Question: Is praying to see the spiritual greatness of my friends the main prayer for the friends?

Answer: This is not a main prayer, but it is a prayer. The main one is connection. And here you are asking for something auxiliary, personal. But it is nevertheless a good request.

Question: Is the request from society for the benefit of society?

Answer: The request of the group should be in such a form that we raise our common Hissaron (deficiency) to the Creator and ask Him to connect us so that we, from our common desire and yearning, can awaken Him to treat us as one single whole.

294.4Question: Every day, every minute we invest different efforts. How does the light react to this and how does it affect the entire work of the world group?

Answer: We just need to feel it. I cannot express this in words, just like I cannot accurately convey to you the taste of something you have not tasted. Let’s come to this and taste it.

Question: Why does corporeal egoism and ambition decrease as spiritual egoism grows? I do not want anything at all.

Answer: This is just for now. As you continue to develop spiritually, you will see how much your corporeal needs grow. In the meantime, there is no reason to cry that you do not want anything. On the contrary, this is help given to you to take the first few steps in the correct direction.

Question: How can we always remember that we are addressing the Creator and first of all to begin with a request for connection?

Answer: The group should think about this. When everyone thinks about this together, no one will escape this thought. This is the mutual guarantee.

Question: What does it mean that the corporeality of the friend is my spirituality?

Answer: If you accept their desires and want to implement them, then these desires become the structure of your spiritual Kli.

Question: You said that spirituality should not mix with corporeality. How can we reach this?

Answer: I meant that you cannot ask for your family, for your children, or someone else. You can only ask for what is inside the circle of the group.

Question: How can I determine whether my actions are for the benefit of the Creator or for my good?

Answer: If the group agrees with you and you raise this issue together to the Creator, then this is an action for His benefit.

Question: What should we do to get out of the descent that will follow the congress? Or maybe we have already reached such a stage that we will not have descents but will only be in ascents and rise?

Answer: Absolutely not! There must be descents, otherwise there will be no ascents. They should alternate with each other: ups and downs, downs and ups. But we have nothing to fear from either of them. On the contrary, it is from the falls that we rise and earn spiritual degrees.

How To Address The Creator?

232.1Question: Would it be correct to pray to the Creator for a new heart that desires nothing for itself but only for the friends?

Answer: Yes, but you need to understand what a new heart means. You must feel it. Mechanical words in prayer simply kill! Better not to say them. You must feel! You must feel everything you say on a sensory level and not just use the words that you read in a book.

Question: But we do not know and do not understand what exactly we need and what we should ask for. In this case, should the request be only for connection?

Answer: Well, for now, let it be only a request for connection. And then you can ask the Creator to teach you the most elementary requests so that you understand how to address Him.

Move Forward With Closed Eyes

565.01Question: What should a person do if he agrees with his egoism that says: “Do whatever you want, just do not raise a real prayer”? After all, the ego knows that he will get an answer.

Answer: This is how the Creator plays with us. But a person must go forward with his eyes shut.

There are several such points on our way when we suddenly stop and do not want to move forward. We are even ready to go backward, to give up everything. Moreover, we decide this very soberly, not under the influence of any special circumstances.

Therefore, we need to know how to overcome such situations and together, with the group, regardless of anything, still move forward. What will be, will be.

Is It Possible To Pray Without Faith?

236.02Question: Can I pray without believing?

Answer: How will you pray? To whom? Why? For what? After all, you have absolutely no connection with the Creator.

Of course, you can pray to get this connection. Then your request to the Creator, who is practically absent in your sensation, should be that you begin to feel Him. From this sensation that is beginning to manifest in you, you will gradually develop a connection with the Creator. This is how it should be done.

Do not be afraid to turn to Him. Do not be afraid to talk to the Creator as a friend, a partner, does not matter who. He really understands you. You should just start a dialogue with Him, and it is a dialogue when you tell Him everything and want to get an answer from Him.

Go And Unite!

592.04Question: What should I do when egoism pushes me to unite by saying: “Go, unite, and you will attain the spiritual world”?

Answer: Great! Go and unite. It is good. Then you will see to what extent the ego will be against you, for you, and so on.

Egoism is the angel of the Creator. For now we call it the “evil angel.” Later, we will understand that there is no evil in the world; there are just two opposite forces pushing us toward our one and only source in order for us to understand it.

We Always Receive What We Need

562.02Question: What can we do with the light that we attract to us?

Answer: The light of correction is what you are asking for. As soon as it comes to you, you immediately begin to understand what to do with it. After all, you raised a request for this force, this understanding, this light, to come to you.

Therefore, just act. You receive according to what you asked for.

In fact, we always receive what we need. Maybe we do not understand our own requests, but at each moment we receive what we need. What is more, we receive only from the Creator, there is no one else besides Him. We just must think about how to use it correctly.
