Readiness to Work for Others

938.02Question: In what prayer should those who are physically gathered in the Arava and the entire world Kli be? Is it to dissolve not in this beauty surrounding us, but in another beauty—in a friend.

Answer: The most important thing is to annul yourself after all. Annul and throw yourself into the arms of your friends so to speak. And everyone should do so. It may sound incorrect, but when a person annuls himself, he wants to feel not himself, but only others.

He wants to apply his strength to them. That’s what they want, and that’s what I’m going to do, as if I don’t have my “I,” there’s nothing, just strength, like a machine. I am ready to work for others. They want to connect, I will connect them. What they want, I will do, and I myself have no desires of my own, no goals of my own.

This is what we should, in principle, make of ourselves. We will reach our goal very quickly when we are all united and discover the Creator in connection with each other.

It’s in front of us, and it’s close.

Dangerous Love

712.03Question: If the Creator reveals His endless love to us, then we will begin to neglect Him, and therefore, as protection, He gives us blows and rejects us. Why is it necessary to do so?

Answer: This is done on purpose so that we change our state. This neglect is the result of a new level of egoism emerging and unfolding in you.

Question: Why can’t we immediately embrace all of the Creator’s love?

Answer: You do not have any abilities for this. We need to work on it. After all, sensation and the understanding of sensations, i.e., the heart and mind must be together. You cannot just feel it! There must be a period of awareness of the cause, action, effect of these sensations, certain control over them, then the next state, and so on. There are a lot of different switches here.

It all depends on how ready you are for this, how much you want to take part in all the metamorphoses happening in you and your willingness to call them upon yourself. This will reduce the time to adapt to the new world.

This is a completely new world in which you will feel that there is neither time nor space, there is no life or death. You will look at your body as at an animal that is next to you; well, you stayed with it, made friends with it, like with your dog or a bull that grazes in your yard, and now you are parting.

Moreover, you feel this animalistic state that also has its own egoistic form. But since it supported you and brought you closer to spirituality, then in this egoistic form it begins to enter the spiritual as an integral part of it. Therefore, there is no death, there is no disappearance. On the contrary, it is like all your inanimate, vegetative, and animate desires that join your next state because they led you to this.

Starting from the appearance of our universe, that point that developed in you has now led you to exit our universe into the next one. This is a very special state, an historical moment. Although there is no history and time.

Where Should the Appeal to the Creator Come from?

938.07Question: How can one form the request to cancel the egoistic shell and exit to the real internal connection of the hearts? What is this request? How to express it?

Answer: This is a question that has no answer. You yourself, by your own efforts should get close to feeling how you need to ask in order to deserve an answer. In the meantime, you have not earned an answer because your demand is not yet sufficient either in strength or in content.

Look how it is written in the fifth excerpt, Maor VaShemesh: “The most important is true connection and love and affection among the friends. This causes all the salvations and sweetening of judgments. When you gather together in love and friendship, by this, all the judgments are removed, sweetened with mercy, and complete mercy and disclosed Hassadim [mercy/grace] are revealed in the world by connecting.”

This is what you need to think about. The appeal to the Creator must come from connection, from the correct relationship between us. It is incredibly hard, but this is how it should be arranged.

And what are you asking for? You have to reach a state where you have done the maximum that you can to get closer to your friends and found that there is still a gap between you. Feeling this gap, you shout to the Creator to help you jump over it. Then it will work.

Pray For Men

627.2Question: We have always felt dependent on the men’s group and it is with great trepidation that we are now revealing that the men’s group also depends on us in some way. We want to find the place where we need to apply our effort, something that depends solely on us.

How can we come to such a prayer? How can we come to the point that depends only on women? We would like to give a helping hand to men who need us now, and we feel this.

Answer: There is no need to give any helping hand to men. You should just pray for them. Women, as I said, know how to do it. Pray for them, and you will succeed.

Prayer Given by the Creator

261Question: What prayer has the Creator already put into our mouths?

Answer: Anything you feel for the Creator, you will discover that this is the prayer He put into you.

It will seem to you at first that this prayer is yours, the request is yours, and everything is yours. But in fact, this is not so. All of it is what He put into you initially.

Garden of Eden Instead of Desert

624.02We feel how far we are from each other and nothing attracts us to connect because we feel the taste of dust in this connection. But if we try to bring a new taste to this state, then this will bring us much closer to each other.

How can this connection be revived and instead of the taste of dust the spirit of life be brought into it? We need to add water to it, Hassadim, and dust will turn into earth. Where can we get this water from? Well, even from tears! Cry that you feel the taste of dust in your connections. We need to revive these connections, and then the Creator will be revealed in them.

We cry out of regret that we are not able to come closer to each other. Egoistic desires do not allow us to unite into one heart and reveal the upper world, eternal life, and the Creator. Of course, we are not able to do it ourselves—but we must ask! Then the upper light will influence us and unite us.

It is necessary to feel the taste of dust (because it is the truth) and work together to turn this dust, this desert, into the Garden of Eden.

Are We Ready to Unite?

13.02Question: You said that women know how to ask. Every day we compose our prayers in every ten . What should we include in them now? How can we improve our prayers these days to come to a single heart?

Answer: We must feel what distances exist between us and how we would like to get rid of them so that our movement toward bestowal and love is directed from us to others, from each of us toward the others.

That is when we will feel whether we are ready to unite or not. Maybe we are not yet, after all.

Try to feel if there is motion between us only to bestow toward others but not back to yourself.

Why Is It so Hard to Be in Constant Prayer?

549.02Question: Why is it always so hard to hold onto a constant prayer during the lesson? Why are we thrown out all the time? Why do we need these entries and exits in prayer?

Answer: This happens because you do not prepare yourself enough for it. If you were preparing for it more, asking the Creator not to be disconnected, to think correctly all the time, then it would be different.

Instead, you turn up at the lesson and only now you start thinking about what you should do. But you need to think about it during all the hours before the lesson or before such a gathering as we have now.

There Is Nothing more Important than Connection!

938.02Question: Now, at the very beginning of the congress, we feel great trembling of what awaits us. We do not know what it will be yet, but we expect it to be something beautiful, strong, and powerful that we will enter into. We feel that the Creator has been helping us all this time. He is with us now, and this is also felt; otherwise, where would this trembling come from?

What should we do with this desire and how do we properly direct it in order to find the closest path to the Creator?

Answer: First of all, I would like to congratulate all of us on this global gathering, on the connection, on the congress, on the direct line between all our hearts! I hope that we are all in inner prayer so that our efforts will really lead to the melting of all hearts into one single heart and that we will feel in it the Creator who has actually prepared and created all this. I hope that we will feel our gathering through this.

There is nothing more important than connection because it is in it that the correction of a broken Kli arises. And when—out of the shattering and huge, huge separation, the separation of desires, that is, hearts—we can once again come to unity over all contradictions, over all conflicts and distances, then we will feel the power of the upper world, the Creator, and that He has prepared for us to realize and attain both in feelings and in reason.

I hope that at our gathering we will make a big step forward. I am very glad that you are meeting together and that there is a huge number of our friends in the Baltic States, in Moscow, in Germany, Bulgaria and so on. In general, it is so that we will all have a lot of help from above. We want to unite! We desire this gathering and its great success.

The most important thing in our gathering is a prayer, an appeal to the Creator to help us feel the love of our friends so that all friends become close to my heart despite the egoistic shell that surrounds it and does not allow love to enter into it, which is the feeling of closeness of my friends. That is where we need to make an effort.

We need only a prayer to the Creator, a request to the Creator, so that He will allow the love of friends for me and mine for them to break this shell and connect with all our friends around the world who are close to us in spirit. This is, of course, the most important thing that we would like to achieve as a consequence of our Baltic Congress.

Build the Desired State

938.05Question: We are very eager to love our friends and to work in the center of the ten. How, based on this, can we pray for all the friends in Arava? I know you are saying, “You must try.” Maybe you can share your experience because we are going through a new state?

Answer: Prayer can happen in the case where you build the desired state that is in front of you for yourself, and you can reach it. In fact, that is a prayer.

Prayer should be in feeling, when you literally approach this state and build it in your imagination, feeling, mind, in everything you can, you literally put it in front of you and enter into it, and want to live in it.

Therefore, you should try hard. Try all together. We just need to see that these things should already materialize so that we can live by this.
