What Are Investment and Labor?

Investment and labor are when I try to bring myself closer to the complete picture, in which I am joined to the system of souls. My yearning to be already now in this same state is called investment and labor.

The yearnings for this state pass on to actions: "All that you can do with your own strength, do." The investment and labor are everything I do in acts, within my environment (Rav, books, group) in order to reach faith in the same complete picture.

And what is "All that you can do with your own strength, do" called?  We must yearn like small children and ask ourselves each moment if we are performing acts like children in order to discover the world. Or maybe we are moving on smoothly?

Love

What is love and how does one arrive at the love of the Creator?

One arrives at the love of the Creator through the love of others. It is not possible otherwise because love is something that is bought through labor. Everything is tested according to the goal, "The end of the act is in the beginning thought." This is the way it is in the family, in the group, in the society, and also between husband and wife. By way of the mutual goal, one arrives at love. When you know that you must arrive at the goal with this person, then you overpower the hate, the rejection, everything. As is written, "Man and wife and the Shechina (Divinity) between them." Love can't exist otherwise because of our ego. It is only because of a reason, the third factor, that commits us and brings us the love.

This means that there must be Light in each connection; the connection comes only from the Creator. Thus love is a possession, something bought, like when one invests. We see this also when people adopt a child, invest in him, and then loves him even more than if he were their own biological child.
