individual adds to the general desire of the group and each one thus determines
this. On the other hand, the individual receives the correct desire for prayer
from the group, from the general.
on the individual prayer for each one for connection returns to the prayer of
many. The individual completes the general and completes himself. And thus it
continues until we arrive at one correct prayer that needs to be: "And the
nation of Israel
sighed from the work."
prayer is our goal. We can be confused and exchange goals and other
attainments. The studies and
dissemination are only means and not the goals themselves. It is forbidden to
be satisfied with the feeling that we are advancing on the path because we will
continue to stay where we are.
need to see one goal before us- the revelation of the attribute of the Creator
with us, the attribute of bestowal, and to demand it incessantly. If the
individual stops this demand, he harms himself and his connection with
Godliness. Thus the prayer for many is so important, work
of the general, in order to fulfill a constant, perpetual prayer.

Daily Kabbalah Definition
Definitions in the daily Kabbalah lesson guide a precise, spiritual approach to terms, & disqualify materialized corporeal definitions
the spiritual meaning of the twenty two "letters" according to the
article about letters in the book of The Zohar
letter in the Hebrew language symbolizes forces, measures of the Upper bestowal
on the Sefira Malchut (Kingdom). Thus if it receives a certain form of
letter, it reaches a correction of the attribute that characterizes that same
letter. And since Malchut includes all the souls, all the souls need to
reach a connection with all the twenty two letters, all the types of forms that
appear in the book of The Zohar, from the word, "In the
beginning" (begins with Bet, the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet)
up to the last word, " Israel" which begins with Yod (tenth
letter in the alphabet). And the question asked in the article,"the Letters"
in the book of The Zohar is: What is that same letter; what is that same
main symbol that if one insists on it, then it is for sure that a person
attribute of bestowal symbolizes for us the letters of Samech (fifteenth
letter in the Hebrew alphabet) and Mem (thirteenth letter in the Hebrew
alphabet) actually stand in the structure of Sefira Bina (Intelligence),
and Bina is what directs all the corrections. The letter Samech signifies
GAR (the first Upper three) of Bina, the level of the desire for
benevolence, return from fear, that doesn't want anything, and it seems that nothing
can be higher than that. Whoever reaches this level doesn't need anything
except just to be in bestowal, only to be included within the bestowal, only to
be above all of his desires. It doesn't matter to what extent he bursts into
letter Mem signifies ZAT of Bina (lower seven of Bina),
return to love, to receive for the sake of bestowal; included in it is also the
letter Samech, and finally it also includes in it the deficiencies of
the others in order to bestow to them. It seems that nothing could be better
than this. Whoever has this attribute not only doesn't use the desire to
receive for himself in any way (called Samech) but he also adds to
himself deficiencies that he takes for others, from strangers, in order to
bestow to them, in order to be like their Mother (called Mem). It turns
out that these attributes of Samech and Mem as if cover up
everything for us.
any case, the book of The Zohar tells us that these letters are namely
forms of attitude, the connection with the Creator which actually symbolize the
attributes of the Creator, but nevertheless they are not enough for a person to
reach correction and revelation. Only the letter Bet (second letter of
the alphabet), which symbolizes blessing, is the main attribute that brings a
person to correction and thus it is especially with this letter that the world
was created. And what is a blessing? A blessing is a remedy, a special force
that we receive from Above. Thus, it is not the mind or feelings, or anything
else that can be taken into account which would help reach spirituality, but
that at the end of it all, it is only one thing that needs to be ahead of
everything and that is a blessing from Above.
