Which Thought Is More Powerful?

947Question: Can we influence other people by our thoughts, and which thought is more powerful, our individual thought or group thought?

Answer: An individual thought actually has no power compared to group thought that is really fulfilled. If you are connected to each other correctly, you will be able to implement every common thought that is aimed correctly and in the best way toward the goal of creation.

If you engage in another thought, however, it will still lead you to the goal of creation, but on a different side road. All of humanity is moving toward one goal, but in alternate ways, along rocky roads, and therefore, humanity reaches its main mission, the attainment of the goal of creation, slowly and badly.

There is a goal toward which we can advance directly, but our mind is distracted by side goals. If we gather into one ten, however, and aim ourselves to the right goal, we will constantly move forward, and all the other attributes, desires, and circumstances will be resolved by themselves.

The Ten Is The Common Soul

934Question: How are the five spiritual senses revealed in the ten?

Answer: A spiritual Partzuf includes: Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut. Zeir Anpin is made of six parts: Hesed, Gevura, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod. So there is Ketter – 1, Hochma – 1, Bina – 1, Zeir Anpin – 6, and Malchut – 1. All together 10 Sefirot.

Each friend in the ten feels all five spiritual senses because the ten is one whole, like a single spiritual body or soul.

So you all have one soul. The fact is that in this world we all have one soul and this structure is called “soul,” or Adam.

In this spiritual body you reveal five senses called Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Apin and Malchut.

Reducing The Distance To Zero

610.1Overcoming means going against the emotional distance between me and the friends and the emotional distance between all of us together from the Creator. We need to overcome these two factors and reduce this distance to zero.

Of course, this will reveal new states (Reshimot), as if I increase the sensitivity by switching from the first level to the second one, then to the third one, and so on.

It is as if I first measure the distance in kilometers, then increase the accuracy and measure it in meters, in centimeters, in millimeters, etc. Each time, the sensitivity, the resolution, increases until I reach the goal. The distance between me and the friends and between all the friends and the Creator is increasingly reducing, and when it reaches zero, that is the final correction.

The Only Weapon Is Prayer

232.1Our only weapon is prayer. Only the appeal to the Creator can help us—nothing
else works. Is there another force in the world that determines anything? And do you really know what to add from yourself to the Creator’s help?

Therefore, the only thing that exists is the appeal to the Creator in the purest form when I ask for nothing but to receive the power of bestowal. This is my only condition. And if I add something to this condition, then it is as if I am deciding something myself, and this is not good. It is wrong. After all, I do not know what is there in this unknown property of bestowal.

Therefore, there is nothing but turning to the Creator and asking only for the force of bestowal and only from within the Ten. This is called “Israel, the Torah, and the Creator are one.” Israel is the person within the ten. The Torah is his desire to receive the power of bestowal that the Creator can give. And we want all three components to come together.

When they really unite, it means that we have reached the end of correction, that is, all our desires have united with the source, with the forces of the Creator, into one whole.

And here we must come to despair because I think in my egoism that I control everything and that I will do everything myself. But in essence, I must come to the opposite state when only the Creator determines everything, and I have to bow down to Him.

The creator is very jealous. He cannot bear that you turn to some other force—as if in reality there is something else beside Him. He is jealous not even of the fact that you are turning to another force but because you think that there is someone else to whom you can turn to beside Him.

A Bridge To The Spiritual World

938.01Why, when you want to cling to the ten and become a guarantor for your friends, does an abyss of problems and such strong rejections suddenly appear as if the Creator is not allowing you to do this and is pushing you off this path?

All this is so that you understand how much you still lack the strength for correction with which these obstacles will become indiscernible. You can jump over this wall, rise above all obstacles, and achieve correction.

We are going into a battle called “the war with the Creator.” We are at war with the Creator Himself directly against Him, because it was He who created all these obstacles in our way so that we would want to turn to Him and persuade Him to help us. We need to pray to Him to do this work, constantly demand like a nagging child who bothers his father, repeating: “Do it for me, do it,” and does not leave him alone. This is what the Creator expects from us.

We are right in front of the entrance to the spiritual world and we do not want to grasp how to cry out so that the Creator will open the gate for us. There are two conditions here: it is necessary to demand and to demand together. Nothing more is needed. Spirituality is when we are together, and the Creator reveals Himself to the extent of our unity.

Before us is an iron wall that is impossible to climb if we do not help each other. None of us can jump over the fence that separates us from the spiritual world. It can only be surmounted through our connection. Only in this form is it possible to overcome this barrier.

We live in the era of the Messiah, in the last generation, when the most important thing is our connection. The task is not to break through to the spiritual world by ourselves, but to achieve such a connection that others can also go there.

Just like ants when they need to overcome some obstacle, they first make a living bridge out of themselves, interlock with each other so that other ants following behind them can climb upon their bodies. That is what we need to do. We are pioneers, and we must make such a bridge from ourselves so that others will walk upon us into the upper world. This is our work, the holy work.

Reconnect Every Day

934It is said: “Each day they will be as new in your eyes.” After all, not even every day, but every moment, we get an awakening, a new opportunity to reveal new broken desires, sparks, and raise them from a broken, egoistic state to bestowal.

Broken Reshimot are revealed, and therefore it is impossible for me to strive for the truth. Everything will always turn in the direction of my egoism. Therefore, we need to awaken each other, guide each other, set an example to each other, and support each other internally with our thoughts and prayers. Otherwise, the time of preparation for spiritual work will stretch for us for many years.

After all, everyone must discover all the desires related to the root of his soul. But through our desire to connect with each other, we find out all the desires that exist in the world, in humanity. It is not just a friend standing in front of me. This friend brings to me a billion more people standing behind him and a much larger number of souls.

Therefore, when I connect with my ten, I connect with all the souls in the world, with all the creatures, and through them with the Creator. If I achieve full integration with my ten, then I will not need to do the same work with other people because they will all already be included in my friends.

So, let us try to unite as much as possible and understand that every day is like anew. This means to reveal a new work on our connection every day, a new separation that did not exist before, and so continue in all possible ways.

Egoism will always pull us aside, distract us with foreign thoughts and present to us spirituality not in its true Kli, that is, not in connection. The most important things that are required for spirituality—connection and love—are the opposite to our egoism and are farthest from us, and therefore we forget about them all the time.

Every day is like anew because each time we understand more and more that a new distance from the ten is revealed, an unwillingness to think about it. Egoism grows and increases the distance between us. Therefore, we need to help each other get closer because all our success depends on it.

The Purpose Of Being In This World

226The goal of man’s work in this world is to achieve complete unification of all people to the point of loving one’s neighbor as oneself. By this, man restores his soul, the common spiritual vessel created by the Creator.

To the extent that in this spiritual vessel (Kli) two opposite forces unite—separation and connection, reception and bestowal—a person reveals the Creator as the advantage of light over darkness. The Creator (Bore) means come and see (Bo-Re), that is, the concept that unfolds as light from darkness.

Alone, no one is able to reach the correction because initially only one common soul was created, Adam HaRishon, which was afterward shattered to the smallest particle, to the smallest spiritual spark in each of us. We exist in this world in order to unite the spiritual points, the sparks of light, that exist in everyone.

Although, this point does not indicate any direction of development, which way to advance, and what to do with it. It only awakens a smallest need for something spiritual that is above this world. But to what exactly, a person does not understand. And that is why people who come to study Kabbalah do not realize what has brought them, what exactly they lack, and where they are drawn to.

And even in our everyday life in this world, in a continuous race for some achievements and replacing one hobby after another, people also do not really understand what attracts and pushes them. But in fact, the same spark that wants to lead us to final correction forces a person to do this work, to give it the opportunity to unite with other sparks and thus collect the first Kli called the ten.

And then other particles will join this ten, other tens, and we will come to a complete correction in the end. Only then will we discover the eternal and perfect life, the full knowledge and feeling of the true reality, called the Creator. Thus, we will reach the realization of the point that led us from the very beginning, pulled and pushed us forward.

For this work, we organize physical tens. Our world exists in order to give us this opportunity to start from something accessible located in front of our eyes. Even before spiritual correction, we have the opportunity to create a material system and work within it according to the advice of Kabbalists: to organize physical tens and add spiritual qualities to them as much as possible.

Even without feeling the upper light and the Creator, we can work inside a small physical group of ten people, awaken the upper light that gradually unites us and reveals spiritual qualities, ascents, and descents inside the ten.

We go through all these changes multiple times: from light to darkness and from darkness to light, through swings of light and dark moods. And afterward, we rise above the moods and evaluate ascents and descents by our closeness or alienation from others and the Creator, our commitment to bestowal or reception. That is how we gradually acquire new values—not from this world but from the spiritual one.

We learn what actions can attract the reforming light, that is, the force of the general light that will affect us and connect us more. Connection is the only correction that is necessary to revive the common soul, which was deliberately shattered to allow us to collect it.

By trying to connect together the conflicting, opposite, and distant parts of the soul, we study what the quality of bestowal is and who the Creator is, and reveal perfect and eternal life.

The Ten Is What We Create Within Us

934Question: Can I imagine the cave of Machpelah as a ten where I have the opportunity to both bestow and receive, that is, to somehow balance my egoism?

Answer: You can. Yet, the ten is not the cave of the patriarchs. It is what we create within us. The group represents exactly the qualities in which bestowal and love are revealed, that which determines the quality of Bina regarding the quality of the earth (Malchut).

Thus, all our advancements are based on what we build from ourselves, from our connection in the ten, from the entire world, a quality that is a group or even, you can say in some sense, a cave.

Question: In principle, should a person find an environment where he can develop the spiritual quality of bestowal and love?

Answer: Yes, that is right.

Question: Through this kind of external story about the cave of Machpelah, do we touch on some internal qualities?

Answer: It is difficult for me to talk about it because for me it is not an external story. For me, it has only one meaning.

Therefore, I am not interested in all sorts of riots that happen in these places or anything like this. For me, these places are not physical, but purely internal.

Can You Call The Ten A Cave?

934Question: Is it possible to call the environment or for example, the ten a person is in, a cave?

Answer: Of course. In fact, a cave is a property of bestowal, a property of love, which can be created even in our world in some limited space.

Question: Let us say that a person has created such an environment around him, and suddenly he discovers the forefathers there. Or even Adam and Eve. How can this be understood?

Answer: When a person wants to see the whole world in union, in bestowal, in mutual connection, he reveals such properties in this world that were previously hidden from him. He feels that the property of bestowal, of love, unification, and rising above egoism really exists. For him there are no more barriers and restrictions, he lives in that space to that measure in that power that he created with his property of bestowal.

The Ten Is A Channel For The Light

934What turns the ten into a channel for the light? If the ten connects through understanding the sources, understanding the goal, and connects, on one hand, to the Creator and, on the other hand, to the external desires, then it turns into a channel for the light.

In the article “The Arvut” (Mutual Guarantee), it is written that the people of Israel serve as a channel for transmitting the upper light to all of humanity.
