The Collective

Q: Can I help others by the study of Kabbalah?

A: Certainly. All problems and troubles stem from a shortage of the Upper Light. The wisdom of Kabbalah gives us the ability to extend that Light and be filled with it. By that wisdom, we can attain the structure of the soul of man and all other souls and bond with them, because we are all parts of one collective soul called Adam ha Rishon, or the “First Man.”

Therefore, to the extent of correction that a Kabbalist attains, he must correct his individual part that is in the other souls. And so we all must correct. That is why the Mitzva of “Love thy neighbor as thyself” is the basis for progress. No elevation is attained without bonding with other souls and the collective correction with them.

Therefore, a collective study in a group is the most practical measure for spiritual advancement.
