Bringing The Power Of A Kabbalah Congress To The Whole World
We think that the spiritual levels described by The
Zohar are light-years away from us. But
when spirituality becomes revealed, it happens very quickly, and if we unite at
the upcoming Congress, we will be able to attain the sensation of spirituality.
Besides, we have to keep in mind that all spiritual development
until now took place on the individual level. It was done by select
individuals, each of whom had to make extraordinary efforts.
But now is the time of revelation, marking a shift in the number
of people studying, as well as the method of study. It is now the method of the
whole world's correction, the correction of the masses. The only thing required
for this to happen is a slight desire on our part.
None of the Kabbalists of the past wrote about this state
because they did not live in a generation such as ours. Now the correction has
become global; it is the true correction where we must all unite together.
Nothing like this has ever happened in history, yet.
We are witnesses of the expansion and growth of this wave, which
is enveloping more and more people. It is moving together with us, giving us
support, and making us a necessary presence in the world.
Therefore, I have great hopes for the upcoming gathering, but
everything will depend on you.
Revelation Happens Through A Great Cloud Of Doubt
we unite our desires to reveal The Zohar, every
person contributes his own deficiencies, his unique work of the mind and heart,
and his attempts to cling to the words in order to attain the goal through
them. Every person has his own ideas about what spirituality is and
how the qualities we read about, such as Aaron, the bull, the mixed multitude,
Moses, and others are connected inside him.
person imagines these notions from the root of his soul, envisioning them in
various distorted forms. But it's OK that they are distorted because "The
advantage of the Light is revealed from the darkness." Every person adds his
own small misconception to the great, common, confused desire.
results in a great, mixed-up ball, like a ball of yarn composed of something
unclear and unknown. It consists of all the disappointments, deficiencies, and
desires, but they all unite together inside this ball because through our
searching we desire to attain unity and reveal the Creator inside us. As a
result, we raise a prayer (MAN), which is the sum of all the doubts,
confusion, and impressions we feel while studying The Zohar,
while The Zohar is one for all of us.
desire to unite all of our aspirations together, which means that we are
standing around Mount Sinai (the Mountain of Hatred). However, we don't
understand what is happening. Therefore, while Moses ascends to the mountain,
we construct a Golden Calf and commit all the other transgressions.
then the Surrounding Light comes to us and illuminates our common desire (Kli),
which consists of our confusions and doubts. It illuminates the darkness, the
state of not being able to see where this picture is inside of us and where our
connection with others lies. The Surrounding Light comes to us through the
great cloud of doubts that we create together; it is through that cloud that
the Light influences every person. Passing through this filter, the Light
brings each of us the desires, deficiencies, and qualities of others, as well
as its own qualities. And this brings about the revelation.
itself does not have any form. When you desire to unite with others and
with The Zohar, when you don't understand anything and are
confused, but you strive to be part of the great, common desire, then the Light
brings you an imprint of these forms. It reveals the right connection between
us and gives you the right structure, in which you are connected with everyone.
You then start to understand the qualities that The Zohar describes.
qualities don't exist inside any one of us. I don't have Aaron or the Golden
Calf inside me; these qualities become expressed only inside my connection with
others-whether I'm "for" them or "against" them. They cannot exist in a
separate person. The impure force and the holiness that are being described
mean "against unity" or "for it." Therefore, the Surrounding Light that comes
in response to your efforts brings you either unity or opposition to unity. But
it happens in a clear, conscious manner. Everything is discerned only in
relation to unity because the only thing we have to correct is the broken
vessel of the common soul.
a single individual cannot imagine anything that The Zohar describes.
The prayer rises upward and the Light descends downward only through our common
cloud of confusion and doubts.
