Connection of the Souls      

How are the souls connected? 

We don't know what a soul is, not mine and certainly not other souls. And we will never know. We need to develop the relation to this thing called souls. The relation towards souls is called, "bestowal."

I don't know who I am or who he is, but I know that I love him. That's enough. To love another is to attain the force of the Creator that dwells between me and this other person. My good relation towards another is the force of bestowal, i.e., that I become a part of him. My attention needs to be on the relations between us, to invest efforts in bringing myself to bestowal and to bind myself to the others in a relation of love. The measure of the connection of love between us will reveal the souls.

What we can do is to make an effort that the deficiency for this love is revealed, and the way there is only via the group. I have to reach baseness of myself and the greatness of the group in order for this to happen. I press on the friends and they press on me, and then a small point of love is revealed to me. Just a small push on this point is enough in order to kindle Light in all the worlds.

Faith in the Wise    

What is "faith in the wise"?

"Faith in the wise" is not blind faith but a means to advance spiritually. The intention is to be adhered to those Kabbalists who went this way and left us the system. They explain the system to us in a very reasonable way, very realistic, logical. But nevertheless, a person who hasn't reached attainment must in the meantime believe in what they say. Despite that he has a point in the heart and that he exists in some kind of agreement with them, nevertheless there is still some room here for "faith in the wise." In any case he must deliver himself to the Upper knowledge, that he is the experienced one, to go after him even though after all the clarifications a person isn't so sure of it. But in any case, he needs to execute what the Upper tells him.

It isn't blind faith because after a person annuls himself towards the Upper and acquires his head, he sees that the Upper is right. It's like a child believing a older person. It's actually not so much belief, but learning. The child needs to get an example from the older one, to implement it, and to see that it's correct and thus, step after step, to advance.
