Segula Is The Access To The Spiritual System
Introduction to The Book of Zohar, "The Night of the Bride": There is a book of remembrance before the Creator about the sins and transgressions taking place in the world. For He needs them for the day when He will perform a miracle (Segula).
Question: What is Segula?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: The Upper Force, the Creator, or the Light is inside the group. I can receive corrections only if we study the primary sources together with the group.
This is Segula-the special means, the works of Kabbalists, which make it possible to unite a person, the group, and the Creator into one whole. Their unity is possible only on the condition that the system they are in is used correctly.
Even now we are part of it. The worlds and Partzufim are all here, but in order for them to come through we have to evoke the influence of spiritual forces upon us. Desire alone is not enough. We need a means that will set the system in motion so it will start working on me through the group.
The system is set in motion with the help of the primary sources. That is why we study the works of Baal HaSulam, Rabash, Ari, and Rashbi. Without this I cannot establish a connection with the spiritual system and set it in motion.
