Coming Out of the Bottle
The approaching Convention is a unity
event. We want to
create a unity so great that in it we will reveal the Upper World. That means
that by the force of our common consolidation we will ascend above the personal
egoism of every person.
Every person should feel that this
ascent holds a new sensation of a new world, a breakthrough into a new
dimension where we exist in bestowal instead of reception, as we do here.
The second half of reality lives by the
law of bestowal, unlike the reality of our world, which exists by the law of
reception. By uniting with each other we want every person to receive great
forces from the group which will enable him to climb out of the "bottleneck"
and, at least slightly, to feel the world that lives by the principles of
Even though we might fall back,
nevertheless with time these "exits" will become more frequent. A person will
start getting used to being between two worlds and will understand what is
happening to him, until his efforts end up being successful and he will become a
"permanent resident" of the spiritual world.

Fill Worry with Joy
Lately I am receiving many letters
saying that people are experiencing such great inspiration, worry, and pressure
as they have never felt before in anticipation of any Convention we have had. In the past people came for the sake of
pleasure and with happy anticipation, but now in addition they also feel worry.
This is the result of our connection.
Never before have we worked on the connection between us so conclusively and
irreversibly. We did not go through all of Baal HaSulam's articles so
intensively, including "Matan Torah," "Mutual Guarantee," and others. We have
never raised the importance so high.
Now, because of our mutual inclusion in
one another, everyone is "holding" on to each other with inner vibrations. We
are passing desires, inspiration, and impressions to one another. It is
precisely the mutual inclusion that makes every person feel such a great
sensation of pressure.
Without suppressing this sensation of
inner unrest, we now have to fill it with joy and confidence that we are
attaining something very great. The desire we have created through this mutual
inclusion, which for now we experience just as inner worry and unrest, will be
filled with confidence, mutual guarantee, joy, and fulfillment.
Every person has to be happy that this
inner unrest comes to him from the fact that he is starting to feel others more
and the common excitement is being transferred to him. This is very perceptible
