watching on the computer screen?
Upper System descends to our world, where we perceive ourselves inside bodies,
separated from one another by distance. Why can't we just be in the souls, in
the spiritual world? Why do we also need this world, the lowest of all the
world is necessary because while we are in it, spiritually separated from one
another, we can physically reduce the distance between us and thereby bring
about spiritual closeness. In the spiritual world we are separated by spiritual
distance, which can only be overcome by truly correcting one's desire.
I can perform a correction in this world by coming to the Congress and being
next to you. When I pay money to attend the Congress, to have the physical
closeness, it helps me to carry out a spiritual correction. This is, in fact,
the only reason our world exists; otherwise, there would be no need for it. It
is a special reality where our material actions can help us to begin making
can turn on an engine by twisting a knob, and it will work. But how can you
turn on the engine of love and bestowal if you're an egoist? You can do it by
physically coming closer to another person while thinking of a spiritual
reward. If I try to come into contact with others who have the same goal as me,
then by physically uniting with them, I can "turn on" the "spiritual engine."
This is how I set the Upper System in motion, which corrects me.
aren't expected to unite our hearts, since it's obvious that we are egoists. It
suffices for us to make physical efforts to draw closer to one another, in
order to turn on the engine of the spiritual system. It then shines upon us
with the Light of Correction, making us similar to the Creator.
Light of Correction comes to us in response to our actions. It travels through
us and begins to raise us. All of the descent of the worlds from above
downwards took place only to enable you to turn on the spiritual system even
while being at the lowest point-this world. You can do it yourself, independent
of the Upper Level, through your material actions. This is exactly what we
do by coming to the Congress.

that The Zohar describes if I'm unable to penetrate the text so
Zohar is an entire system, and you exist inside it as though in
a spider web or a net. This is the system of the universe which contains all
the creatures, and all of it is the Creator.
we read The Zohar, we desire to unite in order to elicit the
influence of this system upon us, so it will begin to work on us and make us active
parts of it. Then we will be able to independently understand, act, and move
Zohar tells us about this system and how it works in its
entirety. Of course, you still don't realize how deep and multi-faceted it is;
you reveal only what is vital for you at every moment of your development.
we are reading the remains of the original Book of Zohar, which was
20 or 30 times bigger than the text that has reached us. And don't forget that
this was all written almost 2,000 years ago.
that one of the authors of The Zohar now came to us and gave
us a lesson. We would understand him because he would be speaking the same
language as what we are now studying. He would be telling us the same things we
now want to learn. But it would be coming from a person who lived a very long
time ago. Just think: Would anything like it be possible in any other
situation? Can you imagine any other situation where people desire to meet an
ancient ancestor in order to learn from him, where they are jealous of his
moral and spiritual level and are able to understand him; they desire to hear
him; they accept him, and they speak to him in the same language about the same

exist inside it, but each of us reveals it to the degree he is able to feel it.
We feel as if we are going from light to darkness, and at first it seems like we
can't see anything in the dark. But once you are there for a few minutes, you
start to gradually discern more and more things within the darkness. And then
you see that you don't even need the light anymore; you don't even have to turn
it on. There is a slight glow, and it's enough for you.
you first enter spiritual darkness, you feel lost. But with a little bit more
unity and a bit more influence of the text upon you, you will begin to feel
where you are. Instead of your current perception of this world, you will begin
to feel that there are different forces operating all around you. They
influence us and we are connected to them. The air will thicken and make room
for the spiritual world.
you have to do is keep going.
