Rabash, “Concerning the Importance of Society”: Therefore, in matters of work on the path of truth, one should isolate oneself from other people. This is because the path of truth requires constant strengthening, since it is against the view of the world. The view of the world is knowing and receiving, whereas the view of Torah is faith and bestowal.
Question: Will people leave the group of the last generation?
Answer: They will leave because in the group of the last generation one needs to make great efforts to constantly make progress.
The fact is that when you are in psychological groups or groups engaged in spiritual practices, then the movement takes place on the basis of knowledge or development of the method.
However, in the Kabbalistic group, the egoistic engine constantly operates and it kind of pushes you out of the group. If you do not constantly work against it, then you do not rise above it and cannot advance. Therefore, in the Kabbalistic group, there is always a need for additional efforts, and one cannot stand still. This is what forces a person to advance.
Question: Why is it that when a person is taken out of the group, he seems to go against the group and/or the method?
Answer: He must justify himself egoistically, so he turns against the group he was in. He wants to show that he is right and they are wrong. He thus tries to find flaws in the group to prove his point.
When a person comes to the group, the point in the heart, which is awakened from above, speaks within him. He suddenly feels that his soul is here.
Then, to stay in place, he needs to make an effort. This is the place of spiritual work. He holds on somehow, for some time, but if he does not make serious efforts, he is drawn away from the path.
Question: How can one make an effort to clear out all the opinions that a person absorbed during his life?
Answer: Everything is written in the Kabbalistic sources. They are written for this purpose.
