Everything Depends On Preparation
How should I prepare myself for the lesson?
We must prepare ourselves for the lesson. Consequently, we are accustomed to not speaking to each other before the lesson-each person within himself, without looking at the others. Each one should come to the lesson with his inner world, prepared to face the Light that Reforms.
It is written that in the days of the Temple, the wise men would sit two hours in silence, with great inner strength, before reading Shema (Hear). "Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One," is Israel, the Light, and the Creator are one, at the highest level. We are speaking here of very strong intentions which a person comes to from within inner clarification, to the extent he succeeds in clarifying his desire to receive, in which form he can discover the light and reach the connection with the intention for the sake of bestowal. It all depends on preparation.
