The degree of connection between me and the
group is my soul.
My soul is my participation in the connection
with others. I need to imagine to myself that there is a net of connection between
the friends and that I am the only one not participating in it. All the friends
are in Gmar Tikkun (Final Correction), completely righteous, and only I
am not corrected. To the extent that I can participate in this infinite,
complete, and corrected net of connection, this is called the dimension of my
soul. I am included within the group as Malchut (Kingdom) in Ein Sof (Infinity), like Bina (Intelligence) where everything there is ready.
The degree of connection between me and the group is the size of my soul.

What is "shame" in spirituality?
"Shame" is the discovery of that same place from
which it is later possible to attain adhesion, i.e., the Kli (vessel)
from which it is possible to work. Shame is discovered a little at a time, at

Creator created. However, we are speaking about spiritual shame when a man is
aware that he could have performed something by himself and didn't; that is, shame
is discovered as a situation that depends on us and we discover that we don't
want it. Also here, the desire is from
This means that an actual void is
discovered, an empty space of which I am the owner and can perform, but I don't
do a thing, for reasons of my own. Shame
is a state. It's a Kli that is very complex and includes within me many
levels. It has its own essence, and so when we reach the end of this sensation,
it is already called "shame."
It is not simple to discover it, since
it is the real Kli, the Kli that was built on top of all the
other, previous Kelim that arrive from the Creator, from the Light, from
the transgressions, from the despair, after exertion in all kinds of things, and
from the Light that Reforms. And then after all this process, man begins to
discover this additional Kli that is called "shame," and then
he discovers fulfillment 620 times greater.
