Part 1:

Passover - Selected Excerpts from the Sources. #17

1. Rav’s Introduction: Yes this is actually our main topic. First to feel that we are in a special ascent although it is called exile and we attain this exile more and more, in all sorts of manners, and the main thing for us to start feeling how we are dependent on the connection between us as our entire good future depends on this on this exodus from Egypt where all together this is a great big step towards us organizing us ourselves in the vessel of Adam HaRashon as we were all as one man with one heart, as one mechanism, one system, and this is what we need to now discover in that state which is called the exile in Egypt, the exile from connection, exile from the connection between us, from attachment between us, and when we want to return from exile to redemption, and the difference between exile and redemption, in Hebrew, Ge’ula, it is the letter Alef and we will see that all that is missing is the Creator between us.

The Creator is the force of unity the force of connection which sustains us, adheres us, brings us closer, embraces us, and then with His power thanks to Him we can be as one man with one heart together in a one circle, in one group, such that we will feel all the members of the group as one in which I don’t feel a difference between me and the others so much so it is similar in structure to the structure of One, to the force of the Creator. That is why to learn this to come closer to this to scrutinize what this depends upon, this special state that we need to come back to. That is all our work. We actually do not have before us a goal other than discovering that we are far from one another to discover by what we can come closer to one another and to execute this nearing until there is no end, no difference between us whatsoever, any separation between us whatsoever. That’s called the complete redemption.

Reading 17. Twice (03:55)

2. S. (05:31) It looks like that this is the entire process of our work.

R. Right, right, when a person sanctifies the point in the heart in him which is the main thing in him which is the point in the heart that wants to connect with all the hearts to one heart, as is properly so, he begins to enter the exile from Egypt the exile from connection. At that time he starts to see each time how far he is from the act of bestowal. It is truly not in him even somewhat this act of bestowal and then the vessels form within him, meaning the deficiencies, and these deficiencies the Creator can later fulfill them. Meaning we need to see only the things that are within the heart of each and everyone to the extent in which our heart is not yet filled with love of friends. The moment it fills with the love of friends then our hearts can connect between us to one heart and then the Creator will be revealed in this special heart. 

3. S. (07:30) The efforts that we put in during the exile in Egypt it says that they accumulate. Accumulate into what?

R. You are not thinking about the friends with your microphone like that.

4. S. (08:07) What does it mean that a person sanctifies his point in the heart properly? How to understand that?

R. He wants through the point in the heart to shine to the other hearts so they can awaken as well and will want to be connected, to connect.

5. S. (08:45) In any case, the beginning of counting starts from the question to the Creator, first me and then the ten, first me and then the friends. How to invert it? First the friends and then me?

R. That will be inverted on its own you just have to think about all of you together. If all of you being together towards the Creator you cannot be apart, the friends apart, the Creator apart, it has to be all as one whole. The Creator, in essence, does not receive the request of an individual. He receives it only if it’s for the ten. Less than the ten it is like the Creator does not understand. For Him ten is as one because otherwise there is no Partzuf there is no connection otherwise there is no same creation or accumulation like in spirituality.

S. That’s exactly the problem, the root of the question comes from me. I want to say that first I, but I is the ten, so how to invert it? How to do so that the ten will be me?

R. The Malchut is me. How to invert it? Simply, you are in the ten and you are constantly connected with them and they receive the decisions and do everything and without them you are nothing. Only together ok?

6. S. (10:57) I heard from you that we come to the one heart when each of the friends fills his heart with love of friends. Can you describe what it means? What is exactly that state where the heart is filled entirely with the love of friends?

R. When I do not feel a difference between attaining the goal. I am not talking about the corporeal earthly life of ours in which we are in but rather I am talking about our spiritual life which is built on the ten only, there is no less than the ten and there is no more than the ten. That’s why this is how we need to relate through such a prism to look at nature, that only the ten, I want to turn to the Creator I need from within the ten, I need to receive something from the Creator I need to be with the ten, not nine and not eleven but specifically the ten. This is when we connect all kinds of qualities connecting bestowal with all the different forms between them and a complete system is created. This is why there cannot be more or less. Hence it is all built this way.

7. S. (13:06) We have Piter here as guests. It says in the excerpt that then he gets to see each time how far he is from the act of giving. It is written in singular form. When are we going to feel it together, all of us?

R. We need to engage in this from the beginning, because without that there cannot even be the smallest steps of progress.

8. S. (13:49) To elaborate on the friend's last question, during the congress we felt as one, one heart, one vessel. Now from what I hear from the lessons many friends in the Tens are in descents. It feels like the mountain is that much higher to get to the point where we are feeling as one again. What is the process to feel as we are in a single heart and even in a stronger way coming out of these falls, thank you.

R. We must understand that everything that the Creator has prepared for us is for our benefit so we would come to the purpose of life. It is upon us to just be drawn to as much as possible to that goal. The goal is connection, the ideal connection, complete connection between us like a ball where each of us will connect to each part of the ball. It is so much so that nobody's going to feel that he is in some corner, but instead he is in the center of the sphere. That is what we needs to crave for. This is our work to the extent we want to be this way connected with the entire globe.

Meaning eventually with the whole of humanity. Just like our sages tell us in the writing of The Last Generation. We need to truly attain connection as much as possible with everybody. Of course, we are not capable because we are human beings and we are limited in our frameworks in the structure of this world. What we can do is to depict this situation, where I truly want it to be so. Not now, not meaning in the structure of today, but as a structure in which I can depict to myself that we are certainly in a single system that is whole and in this system if I enter I feel myself as being truly in the center of the system and also the second and the third like this. Nobody is lying where he is feeling himself in the center of the system and there in the center of the system, he is with connection with everybody truly in that point of the single connection and together with the Creator. The person's connection with the friends becomes his connection with the Creator and this is what we are going to attain. That's all.

What else do I want to add? That our daily lessons seem to repeat themselves. They are not so much renewing for us something, but this is not so. The problem is only in us, that we are not sharp enough and therefore it appears to us that there is no innovation here from lesson to lesson from one word to the next, but it all depends on the extent that the person is opening his heart and the lends an ear to hear the internality of the words. So please I recommend to you to read at home 10 more times every single text that we are learning slowly, slowly and this will work and expand your vessels of reception. 

9. S. (19:44) If you can clarify for us the place of the eye of the needle that we have to find together between us?

R. The eye of the needle is explained to us by Rabash, that it is a hole that is sufficient just enough to thread with some sewing thread and all the rest is just to go through this hole.

S. Is the connection with the friends and the Creator the smallest point?

R. Yes, in which I want to be connected to them only with some sewing thread and to just sew ourselves together and nothing more.

S. We can do this in our feelings and the nullification of the self and the desire to connect?

R. We do everything that way.

Reading 18: (21:09) “The benefit in the exile was a feeling that the will to receive is a sin..”

10. R. (22:15) This means that the Creator told Abraham that I am bringing you to a land, to a place, to a desire. Land, Eretz, means Ratzon, which is desire, which is very special. In which you will feel how far you are from me and you are going to feel the exile in all of its power, in all of its intensity. It is going to be bad for you. You will feel bad and not good and it's on one hand. On the other hand, you will attain this state that you are in, called Egypt. Mitz-rah, you are going attain in this state that is the best possible state to exit the ego, to emerge from the governance of the ego. And he was happy Abraham was happy that he came to this exile. That this is how they entered the land of Egypt. When Abraham asked for assurances for this land, to take this desire, to take this desire and change it from in order to receive to in order to give.

So the Creator told him that be certain that you are going to manage to do this and this is called The Inheritance of the Land. That you will feel this desire and you will know how to overcome and invert them from in order to receive to in order to give and then you are going to exit from there with great assets. And as you enter the land of Egypt in a way that you are not even going to know is happening to you. What is governing you, the evil inclination and to what extent and then you will exit Egypt ready with you bowing the evil inclination and emerging as a free people and this is what we need to attain mostly in the exile from Egypt.

Reading 18 Again. (25:48)

11. S. (27:09) All of us together at this stage of ours, so are we entering into exile or coming out of the exile.

R. We are starting to recognise that we are in exile. We are in exile from spiritual, from love, from connection. We are starting to understand how the selfish ego is controlling us and then we start to hate it to the extent we recognise how much it is controlling us and we will want to get rid of it, but we are not going to be able to. We are going to try, but we are not successful. We will try and we cannot and so on. Until we come to such despair that we will turn to the Creator and scream and cry out for him to take us out of this ego. And when we come with a truthful cry from the depths of our hearts together, then the Creator will hear us and will take us out of Egypt.

12. S. (29:00) How is the feeling of sin expressed?

R. By wanting to use the desire to receive for oneself and not to correct it.

S. How does this feeling take us from the desire to receive to the desire to bestow?

R. This is what we are learning.

13. S. (29:52) You said earlier that each day we have to aim ourselves. What is the standard? What can we use to measure how we can aim ourselves and focus at the Creator?

R. Only the connection between us gives us one thing. That we are not immersed in our personal desires to receive in each and every one of us. We are ready to exit our desire to receive and connect with the friend. This is one thing and the other thing is that the person is willing to help a friend in connection and that is already not that he just came out of the desire to receive, but he does some form of action in order to give to the others meaning that person receives the vessels of the friend wanting to help them and from.coming to connection between them, that it is neither in one nor in the other but between them.

They want in this connection to attain the Creator, a force that connects between them that is shared between them and this is what is important for them and then in such a way when they are seeking the Creator they find the central point in the connection between them. In strengthening this connection, they start to emerge from Egypt. This essential central point is called the Creator. This is considered the exit from Egypt and the Creator is before them either as a pillar of cloud or pillar of fire.

14. S. (32:28) Each day we try to connect more and more and each time we try to do something it comes back to some routine, a habit losing its power. How to keep everyday that it feels fresh and new and that we are not going to give up looking for the higher point.

R. What can I tell you? There are those who make one step and see that they haven't reached the goal and they leave. There are those who are willing to work two steps and there are those who do a thousand steps and they don't fall into despair. It all depends on the goal that they see before them. So we have to make sure how to respect and make the goal greater in our eyes. That's it.

15. S. (33:53) It is written in the passage: “The benefit of exile was to make them feel that the desire to receive is sin”. Why “sin”? And why can we not reveal this in another way?

R. This is because we are born in the desire to receive for oneself. And if the person is feeling that he is enjoying then he gives us a certain form of attraction to it. We feel that in such a way that we fill ourselves and this is how we progress. We are progressing towards the filling and not towards the goal and until we attain that the filling is in one place and the goal is in another place, it takes time. And then in our great effort, in our forces we change the direction of our development.

16. S. (35:10) The land of Egypt, we are in Exile in Egypt and the land of giving is the Creator's. Is there a land which is truly ours?

R. We have no place. There is no land of Israel. There is no desire to give. On the side of the Creator where there are the souls of people, there is nothing. Before we return from Egypt, we come from Egypt. We enter through the Red Sea to the Sinai desert. We receive the Torah. After that we go to battle with the seven nations that exist here in the land of Israel. Then we enter the land of Israel, we battle with these nations and acquire and receive it through wars into our authority. Meaning this is not the desire to give which is before us and we need to battle and acquire it and to invert it from in order to receive to in order to give, and then it is going to be ours. And only in such a way do we come to a desire to give. The land of Israel, the land of directly to the Creator where it is all inclined towards the Creator. This is what is before us to do. We will do it, do not worry. This is already clear to us what we do and our generation is ready for this and we will move through.

S. So we live with the merit of the past and the vision of the future? We are somewhere in the middle?

R. For the time being we are in the land of Egypt, in our desire to receive, in our selfish ego called Pharaoh is ruling over us and we need to try to come to a state where he will open up the points of exit from the ego, from Egypt and to the entrance into the land of Israel and we are in this boundary, on the boundary, on that border and this is why precisely we come the day of Passover, passing over, to skip over from Egypt to the land of Israel.

S. So I plant my feet only in faith, only in faith?

R. Only in connection with the friends. We have to do it only in that because when we are in Egypt, we are still as strangers to each other and beyond outside the border of Egypt, in the land of Israel we need to be friends of each other, so we are in the point of transition how to make ourselves from strangers to friends for each other.

17. S. (40:24) What is it that through the exile we discover that the hair's breadth is the crime?

R. We need to discover our selfish Ego, even when it is not that great, does not always seem obvious and we cannot always reveal that we have to review it as the crime. This crime is any desire in me for myself. That is called a crime.

18. S. (41:09) Is the arrangement of our connections self-organizing that means driven by our efforts or by the records?

R. Of course it is arranged by the records operation and we do nothing. Only the records awaken, they shake us up. They are shaking us up and we are progressing. And the pace of our progress depends on us. How can we realize the record?

S. This is an evolutionary process?

R. Yes, correct.

19. S. (42:47) What and where is the role of Moses when we are under the rule of the king of Egypt?

R. The entire demand of the people of Israel from the Creator is what is connecting everybody and turns to the Creator. All of it is called Moses. All of it is called Moses, this common force that turns to the Creator. In its request to the Creator, it is connecting everybody. This is called Moses. In truth, we do not have a quality or a personality or a leader that is greater than Moses.

20. S. (44:15) Where did Abraham ask for guarantees from the Creator? Is this the reason for the exile?

R. Abraham was asking for guarantees about the inheritance because he was still not connected properly to his people, and his people were still not connected between themselves and they did not understand the process that has to bring them to adhesion to the Creator. So he did not know how to explain to each and everybody, Abraham is a quality in each and everybody. He did not know how to explain to each and everybody that here there has to be a power, a force, a faith and if you do not know how to inherit it, that you would feel the exile and through the exile you can come out of it.

21. S. (45:50) I see the state of the king of Egypt and Egypt as a state of transition, a Holy state that the Creator gives us. If so, how can I strengthen the connection with the friends even during a fall and what is the transition point between Egypt and the connection between us?

R. When you feel that you can deal with all of the forces that separate you, then you can say that you are coming out of Egypt.

22. S. (46:36) The earlier teacher is writing here and he also says that the crime is the desire to receive for oneself and I have that capacity. When you feel that you have a desire for yourself, many times it disappears in the next moment and there is a feeling of work that I have not completed. To the extent that I discovered my will to receive for myself, is there something else to do?

R. Yes, there will be some need to do something else but you are going to discover it, do not worry. I do not want to push you to that point.

23. S. (47:41) You answered the friend from Spain that we have to respect the end, the final goal. Can you explain?

R. No. I do not fully understand what you are asking.

S. You said that we have to respect the final goal. Can you explain?

R. The final goal is the connection of everybody into a single heart, into a single body. There is nothing to explain here. You simply have to portray that for yourself as much as possible.

24. S. (48:55) When we sanctify the point in the heart sometimes we feel upliftment, joy and importance for the path and not necessarily some feeling of exile. Is this work not correct what does it mean to sanctify the point in the heart.

R. To sanctify the point in the heart means that we have to place it and connect around it until this point becomes the only burning thing and desire that lights the rest of the path before us.

S. Are these feelings of upliftment intermediate states before the entrance into Egypt.

R. Yes.

25. S. (50:03) What is this concept of sin? How will we discover this so we can expedite our work?

R. During the work when you work when you work between you in connection, you will begin to discover what is this hare's breadth, what is the point in the heart, what is this hare's breadth that thread that connects the points in the heart together and goes through all the points in the heart.

26. S. (50:58) During the excerpt it was said and then they took upon themselves, meaning to receive that truthful work on ourselves is actually the final stage when you are asking for friends. Is this speaking here also about distancing ourselves from the sin it is not so clear?

R. It is not clear that you were saying please ask later?

27. S. (51:45) At the beginning of the lesson, I asked about the opening, the eye of the needle is the hair's breadth, the feeling of the nullification of the ego at the opening open to the other side?

R. I do not understand.

S. They say that the opening of the heart sounds like hope as a place for salvation. on the other hand that is also salvation without the hair's breadth, is it getting thick at all the time and it's starting by being revealed he day it is review

R. All your wisdom, I do not know.

S. Revelation opening for hope?

R. It is not a revelation for hope, it is an opening for work for you. You put in the thread and you start to sew.

Reading 19 (52:52) "In the state of Lo Lishma, a person feels that he is regarded as Israel.

28. R. (53:49) Meaning the more he advances towards the truth. He is seeing how distant he actually is from in order to bestow.

Continue reading 19: (54:00) "In that state he realized that he is far from being Israel " (Twice)

29. S. (56:23) Tell me please, what does it mean that in the state of Lo Lishma a person feels himself in the degree of Israel?

R. Lo Lishma means he truly discovers where is the Lishma in him, and in such a state he feels that he is not in the degree of Israel, and all of his thoughts his goals his intentions are all aimed at the Creator

S. Here it is written that specifically in that state for Lo Lishma in the degree of Israel.

R. They were wrong.

S. How does it turn out that in this excerpt the person feels himself inYashar Kel, straight to the Creator. It's not yet the real work.

R. It's only the direction, he hasn't attained it yet.

S. Each time I feel myself and I need to be reminded?

R. You don't have to tear yourself away from it or take yourself categorically. You should learn from these words and accept them as correct. It doesn't matter what there are four or against, nevertheless you have to go through them, and appreciate them, and accept them into yourself and keep going.

S. Each time it seems to me that the state that I'm in it's best to define the state and recognize it as fast as possible and move on to the next state.

R. Who said it like that? You need to feel the state and go through it with all the repercussions and ramifications, when the people are of Israel that were in Exile in Egypt under the rule of Pharaoh King of Egypt and he wanted to bring them out from under his rule, they were not able to come from under the rule of the ego. Nevertheless he was among them and he let them connect and face up to the pharaoh against him. He didn't allow them to distance themselves in any way from that state called Egypt. In other words they have all kinds of disturbances and conflicts and contradictions and separations and so on and so forth but it was not clear to them What does it mean to work in bestow and not for his own benefit, it wasn't clear to them.

They could not, yet they always had excuses as to why they cannot aim in order to bestow. Meaning that they are not egoist consciously enough to see that they are working for their own sake, for the time being they couldn't feel that they are opposite to the Creator This is in excerpt number 2.

S. In excerpt 19 it's written that when a person wants to enter the work to bestow and to exit self-love, it's a feeling to me here that it's a decision that comes from feeling like a more mature state in our work.

R. What does it mean that I am entering of my own free will? Am I in it or not? We really define for ourselves where we are and who we are and by our own will and one state or another.

30. S. (01:02:23) Please tell me my private individual state does is the Creator not taken into that into consideration whatsoever he's constantly aiming me and I'm feeling more or less connected with him and it's actually my personal state where is the work begins only an exile and only in the work relation to the friends because my personal state can be the greatness of the Creator only when I come closer to the connection with the friends is where the real work starts is that right?

R. Let's say that this is so.

31. S. (01:03:01) You say that when a person is in a state and a bestow in order to bestow he's in a state of Israel? Meaning he deludes himself to thinking that he is corrected and only when he enters the exile in Egypt he's aware that he's not in a state of corrected, in a state if Israel do I understand that correctly?

R. Yes.

S. The gap is constantly growing when you're climbing to him all the time. How do we overcome this despair when we are aware of this gap?

R. You keep going and everything will be fine.

32. S. (01:04:21) What does it mean that he's not connected with Holiness and he sees himself in a state of smallness?

R. Well if he sees himself in the state of smallness, then that's his state. A person is judged according to how he sees himself and not according to how the Creator sees him.

S. Meaning a state of Katnut, in the state of smallness I'm not connected with holiness, Kedusha?

R. In the state of smallness you cannot bestow, in the state of smallness you can at most not receive but you cannot bestow.

S. Meaning that's the state of the exile from Egypt; that I cannot bestow?

R. Yes, we will talk about it more, don't worry.

33. S. (01:05:15) How do we build an inner connection between us in order to convince one another according to the importance of bestowal? How to do this, how to take this importance and make it this way?

R. Try to show this as an example to all the friends that you want to bestow to them and help and support them.

Reading Item #20. (01:06:10) “When the people of Israel were in exile in Egypt..”

34. R. (01:07:12) Because they had excuses and even though they were far from the Creator it wasn't because of any fault of theirs.

Reading Item #20 Again. (01:07:22)

35. S. (01:08:23) Why did they all of sudden receive this desire to exit the control of Pharaoh, what brought them there?

R. They couldn't take the ego that they were in any longer, for them it felt terrible. Look at what's happening in the world today. What's the difference between different people and different nations to the extent that each nation appreciates the ego that's ruling over them. There are those who can kill one another, conceal and coerce and humiliate women and children in every way. And there are those who think that we need to more or less distribute things evenly and there shouldn't be those who are starving next to those who have tremendous wealth. Meaning, it all depends on the degree of the development of the ego in humanity.

S. Meaning, in our world we know that there are layers of the factions within society that are in the lower ones. How can they do it so that it will be good for them that way?

R. That's how we advance until we understand that the way to come out of the ego is our commitment and obligation towards nature and towards ourselves and towards the Creator.

36. S. (01:10:40) What does the Kabbalist actually want?

R. A Kabbalist wants humanity to advance towards the work of recognition of evil as fast as possible.

S. So why don't we just learn about that and we're learning about receiving lights and changing vessels etc?

R. Because we receive certain illuminations from that place as well, but certainly we can't give everyone such lessons as we are learning. We are learning about a person's inner work and not about the technique of direct light and reflected light and screen or refinement or coarseness. We don't connect it to us but we are learning about some spiritual mechanics.

S. How does the Kabbalist differentiate between his goal and the feeling that he receives from the actual actions he does?

R. The Kabbalist is already in a state where for him to get into the study of the Ten Sefirot or the Tree of Life from the Ari, it's the same as studying an article he feels those actions taking place inside of him and the forces inside of him.

S. So, I will remove the word Kabbalist. How can we differentiate between the goal that we need to always go towards and work upon and the feelings that we’re trying to attain?

R. It's for us, it's the same we're either attaining the fulfillments or advancing in the work, because both of them I am trying to do in order to bestow.

S. And that's the exact point here. We are reading about this, that their desire is to work in to bestow and not for one's benefit but they don't manage to come to that point always, there's always some descent there because eventually you always want to receive some inner light or some reflected light or something like that. Meaning the desire to receive always robs you. So, how do you make sure you're always in the right intention and you're always aimed towards the goal and not towards whatever you see as a result of the actions I do?

R. What you're lacking is connection with the friends and then you will have greater distinction and discernment between receiving and bestowing.

S. When you see the friends in the work you really see acts of bestowal and when you are with them really then you adhere to that. Does this bestowal become permanent or is there always a little place that you'll always say, look, like some kind of examination of it?

R. I don't know what to say, keep going.

S. When a person sees bestowal, so the whole matter of reception disappears from him?

R. How come?

S. Because he's always in this desire to bestow.

R. If he sees an act of bestowal in someone and nothing escapes him and he can learn something from it and he can be the opposite of that.

37. S. (01:14:57) Can you explain what does narrow sea mean?

R. Not yet, we will come to it and we'll speak from within the story.

38. S. (01:15:17) In the 20th excerpt it's written that when he wants to come closer to the Creator, but doesn't succeed because they always have arguments that they can’t aim in the direction of bestowal. Then they see that they are very far from the Creator. What are those excuses that they are talking about here?

R.I didn't understand excuses, ask them about it, maybe ask again.

S. At the end of excerpt 20, it is written that Israel always had excuses as to why they cannot aim in order to bestow. What are those excuses that Israel had?

R. That they're trying to be in order to bestow, but they can't. They're not able, and by this they seemingly punish the Creator as well.

39. S. (01:16:51) We learned that the main part of our work is scrutiny of where we are and what are we doing. When does this scrutiny between where I am, and is in Egypt or in Israel, turn into an action, turn into a step towards freedom?

R. When you come to that first of all you have to stand on the exact point of where am I. In order to bestow or in order to receive, which side of the border, Egypt or Israel, first scrutinize that.

S. How can we scrutinize a scrutiny of truth, because we often fear that if we scrutinize the truth then we will lose strength, so how can we have a true scrutiny?

R. Throw everything away, if we're despaired or we're not despaired, we throw it or not, we want to know the truth that's the main thing. I don't care what to do, if I live or die, if I'm despaired or happy, I want the truth and then I scrutinize.

S. So the person within himself has to be honest to himself as much as he possibly can?

R. Otherwise he won't attain even 1% of the truth ever, and live in a lie all of his life.

S. Can the ten help us in that?

R. Under the condition that a person annuls to the ten in order to attain that thing.

S. When the truth becomes clarified does the demand become stronger? Does that strengthen our progress?

R. Yes.

40. S. (01:18:59) The Creator needed to give us some starting point from which we rise to the place of Adam or human what is that point?

R. It's like a drop of semen from which a person develops in us; it resembles the Creator a little bit.

41. S. (01:19:51) If we know we are in exile in the state called Gadlut, is the only option we have to pray for the friends to get out of it?

R. Yes.

42. S. (01:20:18) How can we be in bestowal?

R. If we receive from above forces of bestowal, we may connect our desires to receive with the force of bestowal. That we've received from above and then we can be in receiving in order to bestow. That is not simple, it's a long path to walk.

Reading excerpt number 21 (01:21:23) “If a person is placed..” Twice

43. S. (01:24:44) Can it be said that if we bring it to the connection with friends that I can in my incorporation I find my inability to connect with the friends and a higher degree and that is the extent to which I can raise a prayer?

R. We can say that, but it's best to simply advance until you find yourself in the right place.

44. S. (01:25:39) What is the difference between exile and concealment?

R. It's hard to say, they resemble each other. In exile you feel why you are an exile, you are suffering and you want to go back to that. Exile is from something positive and concealment may be negative, but concealment has that different purpose than exile.

S. So I don't place the control of the Creator?

R. That's not the only way we measure our states, there is concealment and there is exile. Concealment is when you feel that something is concealed from you which is essential in order to advance towards the purpose of creation and exile is a state where you are somewhere, and now you're expelled from it, and you need to go back to it.

45. S. (01:26:56) How is the memory of the Exodus from Egypt? How does that help us awaken a deficiency in the work?

R. We have to discover what the Exodus from Egypt is and what the memory of Egypt is, and then we will be able to understand exactly what we should aspire for.

46. S. (01:27:31) I understand that what we can do is pray and spend effort, but are there any other things we do that prove to the Creator that we deserve the Exodus from Egypt?

R. We will see, on the way, coming out of Egypt is possible only under the condition that we connect to the friends and we connect to the Creator, that’s it. From the love of others to the love of the Creator, if we are following that path we can leave Egypt.

47. S. (01:28:25) If I want to work for the sake of the Creator and I find that I cannot, like it's written here, and I cannot even see myself in exile, it's written here that it's because I justify myself all the time. So I wanted to ask about justification. Yesterday you talked about the Klipot, the shells that covers the fruit and it's the self-control that I want it, and I cannot I justify myself. Is that some kind of self protection as well?

R. That's all clear, there are many states like that. We cannot scrutinize all of these states, do that on your own and you will understand.

48. S. (01:29:21) Is the memory from the Exodus from Egypt, does that help us keep the Mitzvot?

R. I don't know what he means by observing the Mitzvot. Observing all kinds of actions of ours to bestow, which is called Mitzvot, connects us together until we connect to the figure of Adam HaRishon. This is only possible outside of Egypt, outside of the control of our ego called Pharaoh the King of Egypt.

49. S. (01:30:36) Does revealing the state of Exile allow the Kli to sense how much the Creator desires to bestow to it?

R. Yes, yes.

50. S. (01:31:13) The prayer for exiting Egypt, is it a prayer of a friend individually or is it for a prayer of the friend for the friends? Again, is the prayer for exiting Egypt an individual prayer of the friend or prayer of friends for the friend to exit?

R. This is a general prayer usually when the whole group is praying to come out of Egypt, this is the prayer the Creator answers.

51. S. (01:32:11) It's very prominent as much as we get deeper into this process of exiting Egypt we see how necessary it is to open the heart and to invest in the love of friends, and against that you just see how much it is opposite, how shut off your heart is.

R. So ask, you're not requesting to open your heart and the Creator holds the hearts, so ask him to open it.

S. How is that connection of hearts created? How do we create the connection of hearts?

R. That is also done by the Creator. Everything is done by the Creator, all I need to do is ask, like a small child knowing nothing, he's only nagging you so that you will do it..

S. What does the ability to request depend on?

R. Depends on your deficiency to receive what you're asking for. The deficiency for that depends on the environment and how much the environment shows him that he also wants to attain that, and then envy lust and honor put pressure on you when you're asking.

S. That is clear, so the process brings you on one hand to the awareness that you have nothing and on the other hand brings you to ask the Creator to give it?

R. Yes.

S. Earlier you talked about how renewal to innovations to the lesson depend on us to deepen on what is written and also to get deeper even in the lesson. What is this thing of extracting the maximum from the lesson?

R. I didn't understand.

S. I see upon myself that every lesson with you is like Ein Sof, that we receive an eternity here and what you give I feel I miss out on a lot of what you give during the day. So what does my ability to grasp the maximum amount you give depend on during the lesson?

R. The ability to grasp on to the lesson, to the maximum depends on how much you are in your friends, how much you are in your friends.

S. What does it mean to be in the friends?

R. That one is ready to simply annul into them, to receive from all their vessels and all the vessels and the Impressions and everything that they have is ready to absorb, is ready to help,  to pray for it as much as he can.

S. What can we do against all these wars that block you from the hearts of the friends?

R. This is done on purpose by the Creator, so you will not forget him. That there is a person, a group and the Creator, so wherever the Creator should be in it, he reminds you that you are not yet seeing these corners.

S. I simply don't know what to do with this state of being blocked towards the friends. I understand the process in the intellect, but I cannot break through beyond the intellect.

R. A day will come and this will open and you will see how everything becomes clear. I promise you, it will happen to you.

52. S. (01:37:08) In another morning lesson you said that the answer is to exit once, to exit Egypt once also. So in every descent we go back to our ego. Does this mean that there is no ascent and descent after we leave Egypt?

R. Yes, but we need to bring out of Egypt, just as Moses says he leaves nothing in Egypt, he brings everything out of Egypt. Bringing everything out of Egypt and this is why the Exodus is one, once and for all, but there is no return. Prior to this exit there is preparation, when you collect and collect and collect all the vessels we need to bring out of Egypt. Accumulate the food, the flour that will later become matzah and everything is done towards the Exodus from Egypt.

53. S. (01:39:15) When we are in exile the article refers many times to idol worshiping. What is the idol that we worship so that we can consciously be aware of it and recognize the danger of it? What is this Idol exactly?

R. We are in Egypt meaning under the control of the egoistic will to receive, and we are ready to do whatever the egoistic desire requires of us. This is considered Idol worshiping, when in these desires that I now feel in me there's nothing real, true, eternal, upper, rather I feel that these forces obligate me, so I do it. This is considered Idol worshiping. It's like when you take a stone or a tree and you make some shape out of it and you start bowing down to it, that's all.

S. So these forces that blocks us from connection and the only way out is prayer to rise above it, why then is it so difficult sometimes for the friends to recognize that our only way out of it is through prayer? How to speed up that process?

R. That's because you don't have a possibility to first sort out these forces. When it seems to you that you see some figure and you think it's the upper one a part of the Creator or God forbid the Creator itself, then you bow down to it. Meaning you start observing all kinds of orders, all kinds of conditions, that people tell you and you accept them thinking that this is correct and this comes to you from heaven, from above. That is why we are forbidden from making an image or an idol, it is written in the Torah, bow down only towards the will to bestow. Only towards love of people, to each other, that is the only figure and only shape of the upper. There's no real shape or image to it. It's a force of love a force of connection above the ego of ours. This is the upper thing to which we want to belong.

54. S. (01:43:18) An our connection our senses are more and more sensitive to negative form or positive form, so the ten has to renew this image of the Creator. So what gives us the trust and confidence that the Creator is always with us and not go each one in his way?

R. If each one will go on his own path it will be like we have today in the world. That each one is walking in his own direction and what directions. We need to nonetheless examine with intellect, with emotion, together all of us to discuss what can be right in the world. Where should we come close to and then we can examine that we are following the right and the good state.

55. S. (01:45:14) In the ten we succeeded in overcoming all kinds of corners between us, but each one is still in the framework of her own perception and this feeling of truly connecting without borders, without boundaries we still have a yearning for that. Is that correct? Is that the point of connection?

R. Yes, and that yearning for the Creator we need to connect.
