Quality Times Quantity Equals Power
conclusions for our inner work can we draw from the principle that all of
reality is perfect in relation to the Creator?
Laitman's Answer: This indicates that
all the flaws are inside us, not in the Creator, and we must only correct
ourselves in order to feel perfection. In reality, we already exist in the
hope that by preparing for our Congress in February and gathering together, we
will attain such a powerful unity that we will actually feel this. Spirituality
becomes revealed only inside the unity of souls, not in the souls themselves.
Inside the individual souls it is only possible to feel our world, whereas the
spiritual world is felt inside the connection among the souls.
connection can be attained by virtue of quality, in which case it's enough to
have a small amount of people-even ten people suffices if they are very
powerful. Alternatively, if there are many people, their number can make up for
what they lack in quality.
times quantity equals power. So let's hope that the upcoming unity will connect
newcomers and old-time students into one whole, and then every person will
receive the entire force of this unity which will give us a push upwards,
toward the understanding and sensation of a new, spiritual reality. Then we
will feel it in addition to the mundane reality that we feel today.
A Congress Is An Entrance To The Spiritual World
have just completed the virtual 2010 World Mega-Congress in which many
countries took part, and in February 2010 there will be a large Congress in
Israel which will be supported by the whole world Kli. What is the best
way for us to combine the study of The Book of Zohar with our gatherings
Answer: All of this combines together wonderfully. All of our
gatherings, our regional and worldwide Congresses are intended to unite us
together. By uniting with each other, we allow the Light to be revealed
according to the law of equivalence of form. The Light is one, and it needs
only one desire, one vessel. When we unite in practice, bringing our union to
life and making it real, then to the degree we make efforts and desire to
actualize this, the Light comes closer to us.
For now the Light
shines upon us from afar. It is Surrounding Light rather than Inner Light
because we still aren't united even in the smallest degree in order to be able
to perceive it as Inner Light. If I cancel myself completely, then I pose no
obstacle to unity since I nullify myself before the others. This means that I
enter the spiritual womb, composed of all the other souls. They are all
corrected in relation to me; I am the only one who's uncorrected. If I cancel
myself and my egoism before them, desiring to unite with them, then I will be like
a drop of semen in a womb.
If a person attains
this minimal state, then he enters spirituality as an embryo. The Creator is
revealed inside the union among us, as it is written, "I dwell among the
people." He dwells inside His people-in the unity among the souls. When I am
alone, I am like a foreign body in relation to the others, while all the other
souls are connected together.
Therefore, one must
first and foremost cancel oneself relative to the other souls by connecting
with them. This is what each of us is trying to achieve at all our gatherings
and Congresses, including the upcoming Congress whose focal point will be
