Passover - Selected Excerpts from the Sources. (The Faithful Shepherd. #153)

1. Rav’s Introduction:

1. R. (01:00) The most important thing we have in Pesach [Passover] is that Moses appears during our organization, when we begin to organize between us the connection between us, when we come out of our ego from Pharaoh's control, to the control of our ego. This is something truly special that we need to invest in as many forces as possible in order to detect the force of Moses, that following him we arrange ourselves behind this force in order to advance more and more to wherever the force of Moses leads us to. This is why Moses is called the “faithful shepherd” or the “loyal shepherd.” That he carries out the Creator’s commitment towards the people of Israel meaning towards this whole, great group that came out of Babylon from all the nations of the world that built Babylon back then and anyone who wanted to also came out like that from Egypt following Moses and in that way saw their progress towards the Creator.

The force of Moses in truth is always ahead of us. Moses is also from the word Mashach, pulling us out of our ego and in this way when we follow him bit by bit, we shift, we come out from Egypt from the rule of our ego to the land of Israel, the rule of the force of bestowal, the Creator who shines for us. Along the way we replace one force with the other force. We feel how much our ego is gradually leaving us, sometimes in leaps, sometimes quietly and instead of it comes to us the force of bestowal, the force of connection, the force of mutual help between us. This is how we discover the forces that are already operating outside of Egypt. Now, Moses actually includes all of the forces that bring us from Pharaoh, which is the force of the rule of our ego in its full power and up to the end of correction where the force of bestowal, love and connection already rules. Moses is truly the one who shows us the higher path, as it is written “the force of Moses leads in every generation.”

Reading #153 (05:17) “Moses is called the faithful Shepherd and Illuminating mirror..”

2. R. (06:42) This means that the force that delivers us from the ego, our individual and general ego, is called Moses. That he pulls us out truly from the ego to the quality of bestowal and love. This is why we have no other quality that is closer and more important, that we dream of, that we want to discover as the quality of Moses. Moses is actually the one who connects this force between our ego that existed before the exodus from Egypt with the will to bestow that we develop with his help following the exodus from Egypt. All of this actually passes through Moses. This is why it is written that he is revealed in each and every generation and he knows the force of bestowal and the force of reception to the fullest extent and he knows how to connect them, how to bring the force of reception to its complete correction by the force of bestowal that he reveals this actually is the force of Moses that we want to discover within us.

3. S. (08:50) Today is the first day of Pesach, so how would you describe the first day and the last day?

R. We in the seven days of Passover should discover within us the force of connection, through it we will discover the force of mutual bestow between us and that it should grow between us from one day to the next. According to that we count the degrees of ascent that we have to rise on from the place which is entirely the ego, Egypt, and up to the place where we already connect in the force of mutual bestow and love. In short, we go through this in one week. Later on it expands onwards up to the end of correction. This is what I would like to say. I'm being very cautious about saying any redundant words. I do not want to confuse you.

S. What do you expect from this Pesach?

R. From Passover, this Passover specifically, I expect that we will already be with a certain readiness to rise above our ego. That each one will think all the time about how he can be incorporated with the force of bestowal and connection the dwells between us. If we want to discover this force, we will Discover it. It all depends on desire and effort, as much as we truly, each one of us is demanding of himself to get closer to the friend, to live with him, to feel him. That way in the mutual force between us we will begin to feel how we rise above the individual ego of each one and become incorporated in the general force of bestowal. It is possible. It is possible. And from one moment to the next, I am telling you that you can feel it more and more strongly.

4. S. (12:25) What is this special force actually of Moses doing, okay it's pulling to make the shift from the will to receive to the will to bestow. So what force is actually this force working on us?

R. This force brings us closer between us. Then we discover the force of connection and love and coming closer to each other which is actually the force of Moses. Then it becomes as a force that is opposite Pharaoh and through the difference in form between them we come out of our ego, we rise above it and this is called the exodus from Egypt.

5. S. (13:48) What is the lack called Moses and how can we build this program, how can we discover this quality?

R. The quality of Moses is connection, love, and everything that we need to attain through the corrections. That is why he is called the faithful or trustful Shepherd, that the force of bestowal that dwells in him and pulls us from our ego, from Egypt, forward until the end of correction. Moses’ attraction works on us always; this is how he operates on us. It is interesting that he does not belong to any family from all of the 12 tribes. He does not belong to anyone. Rather he was truly found in the Nile, in the river. This is a sign that he belongs to everyone. Therefore, we should also accept this force in such a way and follow it, the force of connection and love and through it we come out.

S. What confuses me is that in the past there were not so many people but today there are billions. How to connect the past times and now to clarify our situation?

R. Our situation is actually very symbolic because we, along with all of humanity, are in a very confused state, no one knows how to continue forward and how to advance, how to build our future. Indeed it is a state where earlier we thought it would be a beautiful, good state, fifty years from now that is how we were thinking, fifty years ago, what kind of a world we would have, we would have an ability to do everything. We would have machines and such beautiful inclinations and we would have good tools in our hands; we will build planet Earth in a beautiful way.

Fifty years went by let's say, and we see that our situation is more confused, more difficult, more threatening actually over us, that all of humanity that with its wisdom that it has, the ability that it has, it is not doing good things for itself, it does not organize anything good but rather to the opposite, each and every one from one day to the next feels himself as more confused under different kinds of danger. And so, we lack this force of Moses that knows how to go forward, how to be freed from our ego, where today it is clear to us more than ever how much it is destroying our whole present and our future and this is our situation.

6. S. (18:50) How will this Passover give me the strength to raise the desire for connection in my ten?

R. We are here as one ten. Even though you have 300 or 400 people here, we will have many more. We are actually considered as one ten. If we want to connect with a mutual force of bestowal that it will dwell between us, by that we will want to get closer to the quality of the Creator, to bestowal, love, connection, then certainly we will be able to succeed. Not completely but at least to a certain percentage. I hope very much that this will happen to us and that we will understand that it all depends only on us. That is it. Then all the rest will be revealed in our connection.

7. S. (20:22) You said that the success of the Passover Congress depends on our efforts,. what is the main area that we have to make efforts in?

R. The main area is between us, between each one and his friend, so that we will want there to be no distance between us. In our thoughts, in our senses, in whatever we have. That we will feel ourselves outside together as possible. This is what we need. We have all the preparations for it and we know, we understand, we feel that all of these preparations are already operating within us and we just need to realize them even more.

S. How can we help each other to make the right efforts?

R. Through an example mostly. The main thing is the example so that everyone can see just like in your Ten that everyone will see that I am investing all of my forces in the Ten in order to promote it to resemble the Creator. This is actually what I expect will come out of my efforts. This is what we should try to do.

8. S. (22:50) How to distinguish this quality of Moses in the Ten so that it is not just something in me but something is common?

R. Moses all together is what we have to build in the Ten. It is a special force, a common force that we established through our connection and this force pulls us from our ego out to the quality of bestowal and love to the Creator. We built Moses. Therefore, he is under concealment and we have to discover him in the connection between us,and to make him as great as possible also in the connection between us.

9. S. (24:02) The force of Moses from what it seems it guards us ,it keeps us and leads us towards the goal, but it also says in the excerpt that sometimes we can take a step backwards and two steps forward.

R. Sometimes we go forward, sometimes we go backwards and sometimes I step forward and step backward, or two steps also, in order to check ourselves in order to see who is operating and who is dwelling within us. Sometimes we have such a state that we seemingly go backwards. We will learn about this and we will see that even such retreats are not actually going back, but that, specifically by that we advance.

10. S. (25:35) The text says regarding what our sages said regarding the fear of Moses is a small matter. What does that mean?

R. This relates to the fear.The fear that relates to Moses is a small matter. A small matter because the essence of Moses is a high quality but he certainly incorporated all the qualities. This is with respect to fear that when we advance we should advance with fear. meaning that the Creator dwells upon us, he rules upon us and that we constantly want to be under his influence, under his authority.

#154 (27:24) “Moses was born is the appearance of faith..”

11. R. (27:30) Meaning that Moses was born,means that the faith appears in the person, meaning that with respect to him Moses was born.

Continue reading (27:46) ”but which we see that there is a lack of faith..”

12. R. (28:01) The birth of Moses we can feel it according to the faith that awakens in a person and pulls him forward towards bestowal.

13. S. (28:18) Why did Moses what was the Kohen and not a Levite?

R. Well we will learn about this in a few months from now. Why do you care?

S. I'm thinking about it.

R. No no I need to build the system and then I can talk about the 12 tribes and why each one belongs to a certain system or subsystem and then it will be clear to us how it is built the whole world, the internality of the world they're inside there is Moses we will learn about it, about all of these tribes and our place there.

S. Maybe we can discuss the state because Moses is also Messiah, so he's not a Kohen but a Levite?

R. Why do you want to be confused about it? You should learn simply. We are now learning about qualities, what is the quality of Moses, what is the quality of Israel, what is the quality of the world. According to how people are drawn to the purpose of creation, this is how we classify these people.If we can call them people, these are characters, those people we have, it is not worthwhile for us to begin to bring everyone to one place. We will learn about it later we haven't ahead of us many more details that we need.

14. S. (30:58) If Moses is the force of love and and the force of bestowal, why was he afraid of Pharaoh? What is about fair that he scares Moses?

R. First of all Pharaoh is the general ego of the whole of reality. Indeed as we see the same nature there is no more than Pharaoh, there is greater nothing stronger. Pharaoh is the fundamental force of nature. Therefore it is natural that a person understands that against this force he has no forces with which to cope with it. Whereas later on we will see how Moses is going there, he is going to Pharaoh but he does not fight against sarah.

First of all he received from her all of his wisdom and forces and he grew up and later on when he comes to him, he comes through him on the one hand as let's say his adopted grandson, a relative of Pharaoh. He knows him well. He grew up with him on his knees, this is how it is written in a few books. That he played with his beard and so on and so forth. Therefore we see that it all comes out of the ego that exists in all of reality. The ego that is ruling and is everywhere in reality is called Pharaoh. Therefore, the fact that Moses grew up in the house of Pharaoh is good because he understood and he felt the rule of the ego over people. Therefore it is not mistaken with the people of Israel those that want to come out of ego about how to come out of it.   This is what we will learn, we will learn a lot more about that.

15. S. (24:12) You said that the quality of Moses is the quality that attracts us towards each other. Can we say that this quality does not exist in me but in the friend's heart and from the friend's heart it pulls me towards him?

R. It is most correct to say that Moses is the force of the Creator that exists in each and everyone if we are capable of awakening it. Then through this force we pull ourselves from in order to receive to in order to bestow.

S. Still can we say that this force exists within me or outside of me?

R. Outside of me, outside of the person.

16. S. (35:33) How in this Passover do we become a single Ten, what does it mean?

R. Whatever we learned, we need to learn from that how to keep between us bonds of connection as much as possible and up to the highest level. The men among them in the men and the women among the women. it is not that the men and the women should mix. That should not confuse us.

S. I can barely hold my Ten so what does it mean to hold the world Ten, the Kli and one?

R. Everyone, simply everyone. This is how you should depict yourself. In your Ten you work in a way that you invest in them, you know them, you're close to them, and you work with them in practice. Here we want to come out a little bit of the person, outside of each and everyone towards the entire Kli, the world Kli of Bnei Baruch and feel ourselves that we are able to expand throughout the entire Kli.

S. What am I looking to feel there in the general Kli?

R. Connection, love, people who understand me, people that are the same as me who want to get closer to me and I to them.

Reading #155 (37:55) “ all the happiness in the work of the Creator is only the luck of faith..”

17. R. (37:58) This is a sign whether the person has the force of faith or not, if I truly want to annul myself and neutralize myself towards the Creator, it is a sign that I have the force of faith.

Continue reading #155 (38:24) “... naturally all his organs meaning his thoughts and desires follow what faith obligates him to do..” (Twice)

18. S. (40:02) You said that once we find the force of Moses in us and exit Egypt we will not return there. can you elaborate a little bit as I do not understand. Why should I be so sure that I will not go back there?

R. If you were in Egypt and you have absorbed the ego of Egypt, the power of Egypt and then above that above that you escaped Egypt you came out of that ego you have transcended it. then you no longer need to get back, you already have the force of reception from the Egyptian and now you are getting a force of bestow as you are coming out of Egypt through the crossing of the Red Sea, this status of Mount Sinai and so forth. All of those events that happen. Therefore you don't need to go back. You don't go back to Egypt, you become included in it, incorporated with the ego once and then you keep correcting it.'

19. S. (41:27) I heard you say to take two steps forward and one step back and on the other hand t, I heard that you said that when you were driving with Rabbash he told you to go back very quickly in order to avoid pits and obstacles on the road. What has changed from then to now?

R. No no no nothing has changed, the rules of the world are the same, nothing is new/ There is nothing new under the sun. All we need to do is to keep transcending the will to receive each time which certainly awakens within us each time according to the upper plan. All we need to see is, how do we accept it correctly, rise above It and that is our path essentially from Egypt through the land of Israel all the way to the final correction. We essentially know what to do, only in connection we come to progress on the path as one man in one heart it is always towards more and more advanced connections.

20. S. (43:09) What is the difference in the feeling of the force of Moses in Egypt and after Egypt? How does our closeness incorporation change when we direct our attention away from Pharaoh?

R. Exiting Egypt means that we basically are leaving the rule of the Pharaoh. He chases us, he wants to trip us, to once again go into those waters, the malicious waters that we already crossed but we nevertheless escape. Yet there are many other forces that connect us to Egypt. We are under their control. We are crying about where those foods we had in Egypt, what can we do. The nation's crying, the nation is yelling at Moses, why did he take them away, everything was fine in Egypt, we knew how to get around, we knew the laws of nature. We were organized. Our ego knows how to set us up. Everyone knows his ego and we somehow get along in that connection between us. However, when we are now leaving Egypt, we do not know how to connect to each other. For a few minutes it is somehow okay to live that way but it is not so simple to do.

Each time to think about the other and take into account my connection with the other and make sure that this connection grows stronger. That we know about ourselves, those who are already trying to connect to the Ten, you know how hard it is to hold it in your heart and mind and to increase the urgency for growing connection. What do we do? All of our troubles are not at the Exodus from Egypt at the border. The more we move away from Egypt we don't feel that we are moving away from troubles rather we see the rulership of Pharaoh also to our benefit. It was all organized, it was clear what should be done, what shouldn't be done. That is clear, right now we understand we are in the will to receive and without the desire of the will to receive it would be very difficult for us to live in the desire to bestow, it is simply impossible, and so much so that I always need to exert in seeing how I get along with such a world, where everyone behaves in love and connection and consideration. Am I position correctly between them.

21. S. (48:04) How can we hurry up now in order to achieve the faith in order to subjugate ourselves completely before the force of the Creator?

R. Accelerating is possible only by investing in connection,investing is to invest more in the group that you now see before you, not even the totality of it yet  but more or less. When we invest in it more and more in order to even just a few days of being with them, I will try to see ourselves as a single group that exists from now to eternity, to all of eternity. Why? Because only then I'm able to connect with them with all of my heart and bestow from myself to their entire heart, connect to them from my entire heart.

22. S. (49:37) The last sentence in 155, if he's rewarded all the organs since thoughts of the righteous extended in faith in the Creator, what kind of state is that?

R. Say the question again.

S. What kind of state is that?

R. It's a state where a person draws forces of bestowal to his organs and then they become righteous and when they work in order to bestow to each other there considered righteous, and then all of their actions of these organs which are thoughts and actions and desires they become in order to bestow, and man's body his organs they grow.

23. S. (51:26) From where does Moses take the strength to fight against the ego?

R. Moses is a higher force, it's one of the representatives of the Creator's force which works on the person, it's not a person, it's a force that accompanies us and each and every generation. I don't have a question where this force comes from because it comes from nature.

24. S. (52:12) In this excerpt it speaks about lack of faith, and there is the example of the candle opposite the torch which I don't understand. How can we diagnose within ourselves the lack of faith?

R. The lack of faith we can see in ourselves when we are not in an upliftment or awakening but on the contrary in a descent, in a fall, and then we cannot move in any way. Therefore we have to make corrections accordingly, according to that we have to make.corrections. Meaning that, the  lack of faith is felt in us but the upper light doesn't shine on us yet, when the upper light shines we will do anything according to the instruction of the light.

S. Can you explain this example of the candle before a torch? How do we see that as an example of faith?

R. Faith is a force of bestowal that resides in a person, if he has the power of faith then he works accordingly if he doesn't then he cannot, that is it, it's so our entire work is how to equip ourselves with the force of faith, how do we get filled up with the force of faith so we can always move towards the connection between us.

S. Still not clear to me the candle before the torch? It's not clear? Why does it say here to  annul here before like a candle to a torch?

R. Yes, that's what we need to do to annul towards the Creator and then by the power of annulment we will receive from him the power of bestowal.

25. S. (55:12)I wanted to ask whether in every state of faith, we can call it that Moses is born?

R. The awakening of the force of bestowal in a person is called the awakening of the force of Moses, yes.

S. Can we awaken within ourselves artificially this force or does this force come from the Creator

R. No, between us we can consult and connect in such a way between us that we'll always awaken in the force of Moses, the force of bestowal, and the Creator will shine on us based on our efforts with his force and that's how we will invite or summon the force of Moses to dwell between us.

26. S. (56:26) In excerpt 155 he says that if he is rewarded all the organs are righteous, what are organs in spirituality and what does it mean to say that they are righteous?

R. If he is awarded that all the organs are righteous meaning all the thoughts and actions and qualities of a person are in the direction of bestowal, connection towards the others firstly with the friends of course.

S. Why is Passover 7 days?

R. That we will learn, because until the upper light spreads into each and every quality and aspect of 7 degrees we need to pass it's basically like the Sefirot.

27. S. (58:11) Is the force of Moses coming as a result of the feeling of the friend because I raise or increase his deficiency?

R. Let's say so.

Reading number 156: (58:56 ) “If the people's Shepherd is not rewarded..”

28. R. (01:00:05) Meaning we see here a reciprocal bestowal here or influence between us and the system called Moses, that to the extent we connect between us the force of Moses overcomes and that's in short.

Reading number 157: (01: 00:45 ) “It is written I am with heavy mouth..”

29. R. (01: 01:31) Yes, what does it say, I am a stuttering and heavy in speech, meaning you can't speak and you can't explain what it's about the ego is so embedded in a person that even in thought or even in some in any of our thoughts we cannot imagine to ourselves how we escape and exit the Egypt and begin to feel the upper world it's a big problem Therefore it says, Moses complains, as it says I am of a heavy mouth and heavy tongue it says about Moses that Moses is called the faithful shepherd since Moses called faith,how can he pull us out of Egypt, drag us out of Egypt since Moses is called faith and with faith there's no mouth or tongue, for mouth and tongue means that he explains the matter with mind and reason, while Moses is faith above reason. Meaning the aspect of Moses that appears in the person and even though it helps him come out of Egypt it doesn't help him directly, as it works against his egoistic mind and heart, forcing him to transcend his mind and emotion and it's not showing him how to escape the ego no, a person after all is in a state where he stumbles and fumbles and each in every step until he ultimately escapes, so it's not that with his mind and reason and emotion he understands and then he comes out of Egypt no he does not.

Even to explain it to himself he cannot, let alone others, Therefore Rabash says in 158 the degree of Moses meaning he is regarded as covered Hassidim which is considered that I has not seen meaning covered  Hassidim, a god besides you meaning that all his work is in the discernment of great and ruling and he needs no reward but God, as this is his entire vitality that he is serving the Creator, what does he want to say? That basically here we have to stand until we carry out this condition that we are willing to bestow to the Creator, to work for the Creator without any reward without anything in exchange, it's not that we're in under the rule of Pharaoh and for any effort we put in we received some assent, some degree just like in our world.

The more you invest, accordingly the more you advance, here it is to a different degree. This is called covered Hassadim, and the eye has not seen, meaning the eye has not seen a god besides you. Meaning that all his work is in the discernment of great and ruling,and he needs no reward but God as this is his entire vitality that he is serving the Creator. Meaning we can begin to come out of Egypt only on the condition that we are willing to work without a reward that I don't want anything for my labor for my work, nothing, just to labor. What do I get out of it? Nothing, just labor. I don't want anything and even if I'm given, I don't want it.

30. S. (01:07:20) How can a person advance if he has no faith? Can you give us some suggestions on how to achieve faith?

R. Faith is received only from the Creator's force, it cannot be bought in any way. Faith is when it comes to a person the person receives strength to act by faith to bestow through faith if he doesn't receive the force of faith then man cannot do anything. He cannot be above his ego. Meaning we received the power of faith we transcend the ego, and then we come to forces of bestowal and by that we leave Egypt, if we cannot transcend the force of reception the force of pharaoh then what can we do, we remain in the force of Pharaoh, reception and we end life that way it's one of the two. The wisdom of Kabbalah is very very accurate, very precise and very straightforward, you want to come out of your ego. There is simply one way. There is only one way and there are not many options, it's not religion, it's not faith, it's simply acquiring the power of bestowal or the power of faith, however you want to call it.

31. S. (01:09:55) On what depends on our ability to make an effort without a reward?

R. Through the support of the group first of all, to the extent that the society helps and supports and advances the person, it directs a person that's how he can go forward. He needs to be given an example that this is how he can live. What does it mean to live to justify his actions of being like everyone else, like the friends that is and if not then he falls.

S. What is the fuel that you have in performing actions without any reward?

R. That I'm making actions without any reward.

S. The very fact that I perform the actions is the fulfillment I begin to have?

R. Yes.

S. Okay, that's clear. How do you manage to see the support that you got from society? That the society is actually supporting you in this direction how do you manage to recognize that this is the support you're getting?

R. This I cannot really explain but this can be felt, according to the general spirit in the group and yes this is something that we can discover and achieve.

S. It is very clearly felt that we are getting help from above, from the Creator, where he seemingly organizes everything for us but on the other hand, seemingly it is going with me. How can we accelerate this process in a way that we will manage to catch everything that the Creator is passing on to us?

R. I would say the following, we should be accountable to ourselves each and every day where are we and what have we done and how do we advance, and in such a way, we will hopefully advance better and faster.

S. What will be considered a successful and a good day for us?

R. A successful day is that I've engaged in the study, in disseminating Kabbalah, and in connection with the friends. I have distributed my time as much as I have free time, and I've divided it into a few different segments.

32. S. (01:13:21) If we get the force of faith from above, how do we relate to the verse that everything is in the hands of heaven besides the fear of heaven?

R. The fear of heaven is what we need, that we relate everything to the Creator besides fear of Heaven, yes

S. It doesn't quite work out for me, if faith comes to us from above from the Creator, how do we interpret this verse because the fear of heaven it says though it comes from us, it's our part not some part that comes from above.

R. Where have you seen something in the human that he has of his own egoistic desire?

S. It's clear, but I'm trying to get this excerpt because everything it says that everything comes from above, because this excerpt says that everything is for the fear of heaven that comes from us?

R. That fear of heaven doesn't come from us also but it comes according to our request according to our plea.

33. S. (01:14:48) We need or want to work without a reward, do we get this force from society from the light?

R. No, we are working only in order to receive an award and a good reward, the greatest reward that can ever be in reality, and that is the force of bestowal. we want to be like the Creator we want to achieve adhesion, that is nothing?

S. But we said that first we need to exert without demanding anything in return that's not a demand to be in bestowal?

R. No, to be in bestowal is a demand and that is good.

S. So it's something good that I can hold on to that?

R. You can demand yes,

S. What if there's states I'm not demanding it? That I feel that I'm searching for something for myself that I feel that I don't have the right attitude towards the Creator at that moment?

R. So what do you want of Him?

S. How do I keep the right attitude on all states that are revealed?

R. To imagine yourself being in front of the Creator that is one, Two, what do you want from the Creator, that needs to be clear to you.

S. Bestowal.

R. I don't know that, what would you like to give, to receive an exchange for what you get from the Creator.

S. You're describing something that I'm very organized I know what I want and I know what to do and it's not my state all the time?

R. So scrutinize this, ask about this.

S. I can feel like I can do this for a percentage of my states but the others I'm not really scrutinizing who am I and what I and what I want and who I am standing before and where is it coming from there's things I go through without scrutinizing it all the way?

R. Yes it lives in such a way that it flows. I understand you, I understand. It's a problem we all have, we need to try and rise Above It

34. S. (01:17:24) In the work we can pray and shifts but then when you're trying to work for bestow you get more rewards so it's not clear what to do with it why I got it to invest more

R. In order to invest until I will feel in my investment that I do and I invest in the Creator that I begin to discover him, the Creator is our goal.

S. The main thing is not to forget the goal we are working for?

R. Okay.

35. S. ( 01:18:5) What's a person's expression whether he's controlled by the force of pharaoh or faith?

R. I didn't understand, what a response?

S. Not a response, either he's controlled by Pharaoh or he's inviting the force of faith but how can a person focus his expression? What is my expression through all these forces I'm working through?

R. I don't understand the question, let's say I'm living and working I'm I have a family and everything we have.

S. How can a person separate the force that's working on him?

R. Separate himself from what?

S. The force working on him?

R. That's hard to differentiate because for that you need to reach the force of bestowal and through the force of bestowal that you acquire, through the force of bestowal you acquire, you begin to see whether you have this force or if it only seems like that to you and that's how you will advance. The main thing is that it's clarified among the friends, where I solve all my problems and all my questions, in a very practical manner, that I can come close to them what are the qualities? and how they change by coming closer to them? and from that I understand how to move forward from side to side, from foot to foot  how do I transition from right to left to middle and this is how it advances, if I am examining myself and measuring myself towards the friends according to the friends. That's really important. These are all the examinations, because all in all, I need to see myself as being included in the friends in the middle line, and in that the Creator is also coming close to us, to us not to me, to the extent that I'm included in them. At the end of the day, this is what I want to say, the connection between us is what saves us from all the questions and all the problems and from everything, the connection between us, and if we arrive at that connection we can awaken all the questions and feel them in practice.

36. S. (01:23:05) Are faith and confidence two things?

R. Faith and confidence are two things but they are also connected.

S. If we acquire the force of bestow more and more, is that the reflected light, is adhesion with the Creator and force of bestowal two things?

R.The force of bestowal is the force of bestowal and what else?

It's a state, it's not a force, this is a state that can be measured.

S. Do I measure it by the force of bestowal?

R. Yes, to the extent I am connected to the Creator how do I measure this according to the disturbances to one that wants to detach me from the Creator. Only according to that, how can I check? That's why the force of evil we need to see in it that it awakens and compares in the good force and we measure this in comparison to that that was created by the Creator.

37. S. (01:25:18) You're saying that the force of faith and bestow are the same? On the other hand you're saying that the wisdom of Kabbalah is very accurate, so if it's two different terms there should be a difference between them?

R. The force of bestow and the force of faith?

S. Yes.

R. The force of bestow can be measured in comparison to the others and the force of faith can be measured only in comparison to a person himself, to the extent that he rises above his inner disturbances. That is the force of faith and the force of bestowal is to the extent that he comes out of himself in order to connect with the friend.
