To Stimulate the Light
How does one decide on bestowal and not reception?
A person needs, first of all, to want to prefer bestowal over reception and to thus prepare himself. This assists him in times when the Creator increases his desire to receive and adds to him unfavorable thoughts. Secondly, a man must determine for himself, "time for Torah," determine the times to study, to read books, to be involved in bestowal. The third advice: to cause the environment to deal with bestowal. This means to worry that the friends don't exit thoughts of bestowal, that these thoughts will be above all else, above the ego.
These efforts of a person awaken the Light that Reforms so that it acts on him. A person has to understand that he must oblige the Creator to awaken him and not to wait until it happens by itself. And then the Creator will increase the desire to receive in a person and sometimes even to awaken in him the desire to bestow, in order to awaken in him a spark that he will bring to the group.
