Letter 36


1. Rav’s Introduction:

Well that's not how we start our lessons. We need to give some introduction to this. We are coming closer to the next stage in our correction. We went through preparations for all kinds of things. We learned about the shattering in the summer and later on we got closer to Rosh Hashanah, S’lichot, forgiveness and then Rosh Hashanah and we went through Yom Kippur. That is we learned about all of these stages in the correction of the soul, that all of those holy days celebrate in this world these are symbols signs referring to what we actually have to perform inside of us. This pertains to each and every person on the path to correction of his soul. Those who feel a need to correct themselves in order to come closer to discovering the Creator and to be with him in connection, adhesion, so they performed these actions, they try to perform these actions. Now, after we learned together how we tried to distance ourselves from our ego, from the will to receive in order to receive which is what Yom Kippur symbolizes for us, now we're entering the correction. Yom Kippurim symbolizes for us a kind of restriction where we don't use anything in our will to receive. This sign for the prohibition to use the will to receive is the prohibition for eating, drinking, wearing leather shoes, washing with soap. After we performed a restriction on our will to receive and we don't want to use it towards others or towards the Creator of but only in the form of bestowal, now, we are entering the next stage. How do we acquire this form of bestowal, to bestow in order to bestow where we finally are going to perform on our will to receive which is already clean of our ego, of the in order to receive, now we want to use it in order to bestow, To give, to come closer to the form of the Creator. In this correction that we have to perform on the will to receive is that we have to cover our will to receive because besides our will to receive we have nothing. Even if we want to give something to someone we still use our will to receive, we just have to invert it so that it will want to give. If when it wants to give it is willing to give something to the outside but in order to receive inside and other words in order for it to feel good as a result, that is something else. We perform such actions in this world and by that we don't change the nature of the action. We're still receiving. So how can we perform actions where we're truly through the will to receive we actually rise above it and we give and this action is completely equal to giving, as if we have the Creator's power of bestowal even though we remain in our own will to receive. To perform such corrections on our will to receive so that it will enable us to perform actions of bestowal, this correction, this process that we have to go through on ourselves is called Sukkot. Sukkot comes from the word, Schach, thatch, where we cover the will to receive after we decided on the day of Yom Kippurim not to use it. Therefore we didn't eat, we didn't drink, now we learn how this will to receive we can invert into a Kli by which we will be able to become closer to an act of bestowal, to acts of Binah, to an act of faith. The symbol for this is the Sukkah from the word Schach, thatch or cover that we want to cover our ego, our will to receive that we already decided that with it we cannot enter spirituality as it is, that’s on the one hand. On the other hand we have nothing besides the will to receive. It is us, so how can we, and what form, with which change can we use it so that our action will resemble an act of bestowal? In order to reach an act of bestowal, we have to acquire the qualities of Binah, the quality of faith. This is what we learn with regard to all of our desires and now we will be studying it during this holiday called the holiday of Sukkot. We have three first degrees which are called Keter Chochmah, Binah (KHB),  the Rosh of the Partzuf and besides that we have the Guf, body, of the 7 Sephirot Chesed Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, Malchut  (CHGTNHYM). We need to know how we work with all of our desires? In order to make them similar to the 10 Sephirot so that out of 10 Sephirot we will perform actions of bestowal. Each to the other in our tens and later on out of our ten to the Creator until we will discover that in that same structure that we create between us called Sukkah, a tabernacle.  Sukkah is the connection between us the soul that we put together when it reaches a state of mutual bestowal. It is filled with the light of Chassidim, the light of Faith or the shadow of Faith. Shadow because we make a Masach, a screen above us. We don't want to receive anything from the Creator besides wanting to bestow like him. This is the first correction after we made a restriction on Yom Kippur and now we will try to learn how we do it. There are certainly many details in order to make our will to receive resemble at least in bestowing in order to bestow, bestowing in order to resemble the Creator, there are many details in there but that's already work in practice, not with restrictions the way it was before with abstaining and distancing yourself from the world to receive. Now we're engaging in change in the world to receive a little bit. We try from it, above it to build actions of bestowal. To already resemble Creator to some extent. How can we do that? Actually we are a will to receive and the Creator, the light, is the opposite of the will to receive. He is the will to bestow, so in order to have contact with him, we need to build above our will to receive a shield. So that we don't receive light from the Creator directly because this is for the following Tzimtzum Aleph, the first restriction. It will simply burn us. Therefore, we have to build above ourselves a Masach, screen. This Masach that we build so that the upper light will not shine on us directly, it is called Schach, the thatch. It actually is a shield. I don't want to be in direct contact with the Creator because first of all it is forbidden. It is impossible. It won't give me any nearing to the Creator and I will become a Klipa, shell,  a will to receive that just wants to receive and then it is in darkness. Rather, if I truly want to have contact with the Creator I need to build above myself a Masach, a partition and this partition will not allow me to have direct contact with the Creator because I'm the will to receive and I only want to receive and the Creator is the world to bestow. So then I want to have between us equivalence in our qualities and this is why I make a restriction on my will to receive and I don't use it. First of all, I don't use it the way it is. Then I start thinking that all of my actions should be only that I protect myself, shield myself so that I do not use it in order to receive. This is considered that I'm building a thatch, a kind of a ceiling above me so that beneath it, beneath the ceiling, beneath this thatch I want to hide. There are laws as to how I built this thatch out of desires and intentions, out of my actions with the friends. When I build this thatch I have to place it on the sides so we have to build these sides: what height should I build these sides, from which materials from this world can I build the Sukkah, which would symbolize for me the spiritual Sukkah? Sometimes, although it is spiritual Sukkah, we sometimes speak in terms of this world so it would be easier for us to explain what it is we have to do inside, what actions, and this is how we will advance together in order to build the Sukkah. A person who is in the Sukkah, that's our will to receive, Adam, a man is our will to receive, who is inside of such a wrapping, that he already makes upon himself a Tzimtzum, Masach, Ohr Chozer, (restriction, screen and reflected light) and he sits beneath the Sukkah and whatever he receives from the Creator it is considered that he's receiving the light of Chassidim. By this he is building a Kli of Binah,  a vessel of faith, above reason. The very first spiritual Kli that we have to build. Then when we start to build this Kli we start to feel inside of it the qualities of the Creator and the qualities of bestowal. Not yet spiritual attainments in the light of Chochmah that later will come inside the light of Chassidim, but for the time being only the light of Chassidim. The light of Chassidim is what we establish within us under the thatch because we are covered, because we cover ourselves beneath the thatch and we should feel ourselves as being a ten under the thatch, all of us together who are inside of the Sukkah, inside of the thatch and we connect there. Above us we build the Masach since we don't want to receive from the Creator anything besides only to resemble him in the quality of bestowal and that quality of bestowal we established between us, the ten friends that are beneath the thatch and by this we reach the realization of the first spiritual Kli. This is what the Sukkah symbolizes for us. There are additional details there. We will study it, we have more than 10 days to study these things. They are very important. There is enough material about it because by this we have to build the Kli of faith above reason, the Kli of Binah and to know how we are entering together into this Kli, how we put it together establishing it.This is all this is what we have to do. Let's hope that we will be able to understand this and explain it to one another and this way we will advance to actually the first spiritual degree that we will try to achieve and to implement. So we have lots of materials, many essays. This is a very exciting process because it is the beginning of the construction of the soul. The beginning of the construction of the spiritual Kli and finally we want to reach a state where we will acquire faith above reason. We have to understand what is a Masch which is the thatch, how do we do it? What are the qualities of this Masach, screen or this thatch? When are we supposed to sit inside of the Sukkah, is it allowed to come out of the Sukkah? Meaning of this Kli, only to be inside of it all of the time,  and always and we only add to this Kli more and more discernments. All of these things we will have to study and we have lessons in the morning and we have lessons in the evening. In the evening we usually repeat the materials that we study in the morning, maybe a little bit, because it's not worthwhile for us to leave this issue of Sukkot all of this time, now we are in this time. We should take advantage of this time in order to reach the soul of faith. Out of our study, we would like to create connection between us in the tens, and connection between the tens, that is into the general Kli of the worldwide Bnei Baruch. Including both the men and the women, and later on also our general Kli, worldwide Kli with the whole of humanity since the whole world in the end has to enter the Sukkah of peace. Peace, shlemut, means wholeness. Into a Masach, screen that gives us wholeness in our lives in our existence and our spiritual attainment and resembling the Creator, being in adhesion with him.  So let's hope that we will study this, slowly we shouldn't be running here because this is the Kli that we need. It's not that  it's a stage on the way to some next state, but rather if we establish this Kli called a Sukkah, later on we just add to this Kli, all of the things that we need to have until this Kli expands. Inside of it we discover the whole of reality and we reach the whole of humanity which is inside of the Sukkah covered with the special Masach, and the Creator is above us and that way through the Masach we are connected with him in mutual bestowal and love. 

2.S. (21:20) I was always under the impression that the thatch was made from scrap or refuse. What is that refuse in a ten? How does a ten realize that?

R. Write down this question to put it on the side. We will study it and we will study it really well. Yes. It is a correct question and we will study it. It is very important.

3.S. (22:15) How is the vessel we build in the Sukkah different from how we build in Yom Kippur from the 10 Spheriot?

R. Yom Kippur we will build through the restriction. We prepare the Kli, so there is no building there. There are upper forces there that we ask the Creator will give us so that we will disconnect from our world to receive so there is no construction of the Kli there. These are stages in order to come closer to the construction of the Kli, but there it is still not construction; it is seemingly the opposite - restriction. We don’t receive, no no no - that’s what we have.

4.S. (23:05) You emphasized that the Masach seemingly has the quality of Chassadim and thanks to that we connect in the group and enter the Sukkah so this direct light has to go through the screen otherwise there will be a shattering.

R. We're not studying these things yet, there is something to what you're saying but we need to learn how to learn about it. Don't jump ahead, I'm being cautious, I'm only giving a new introduction to what we're about to study, so don't spoil my introduction

5.S. (23:54) According to what you said, let's say we came to some part of the restriction on Yom Kippur let's say and after that what does it mean that we build the Sukkah? That we develop the love between us in the ten above what we feel? The actual thatch?

R. It's not about love between us. Rather we want to rise above our ego and to be in the form of mutual bestowal. It's not yet love. Love is considered when we are in a state of receiving in order to bestow, when we use the vessels of reception. To feel love you need the vessels of reception. Here we are only acquiring the vessels of bestowal, in order not to touch one another with our ego. To keep our ego so that it won't harm us or injure us. We want to rise and to bestow but not more. Therefore we are beneath the thatch, beneath the Masach so that we hardly see the light that passes through it, the light up from above from the sun, and this way we symbolize for the time being our spiritual degree: how we are capable of being connected with the Creator, with his bestowal, that he wants to give us everything. Now we're starting to build, safeguarding that we will receive from him only as much we are able to bestow back to him. For the time being, when we start the restriction we can only be connected with the Creator beneath the thatch. Which means that we have above us the Masach, we put branches there, all kinds so that light can hardly pass down to us, so the shade needs to be more than the sun. This symbolizes for us that when we are in such a Sukkah, it symbolizes for us that we want to be under the Masach, not to receive the light of knowledge but rather to receive the light of Chochmah that is clothed in the light of Chassidim so that there would be a little bit of addition there but mostly it would be the light of Chassidim and 10% would be the light of Chochmah. According to how much we are capable of, according to the intensity of the power of the Chassadim. Later we will receive the light of Chochmah but that comes later, and also not in Sukkot Sukkah is considered the shade of faith.

S. Can it be said that we build this Masach by  preferring the connection to the friends over everything else I feel, the feeling of the friends and the ten?

R. That is correct.

6.S. (27:43) How will we know in the ten that we have mastered the process of restriction, that we're ready?

R. The fact that we want to relate to each other only in order to strengthen the friends on the path, only in order to make connections between us that are stronger, this is considered that we rise above the restriction between us. That I don't want to receive anything from the friends but only to have the power and possibility to create more connections between us. Like with a rope, this is how I want to tie more and more connections between us.

7.S. (28:45) The screen, is that an action where we keep adding, does it keep going?

R. Yes, it is ongoing work because all the time our will to receive that is broken as a result of the shattering, entirely broken, it is revealed through this special engine that is bringing us closer to the end of correction. This is why each moment we can feel changes related to time as we were alive. That each time desires and thoughts and actions and the whole world is changing. How does that happen? It is  through our desires that rise from the shattering and they reach our understanding, our awareness and through them, through these desires we see a new world. Another moment, another moment, another moment everything changes, everything is new and in such a way we advance. This is why now our collective advancement is in building a Sukkah, a state in which we want to bring the whole of humanity into it and it doesn't matter that they don't understand it, they don't know - they also will not know and will not understand. Most of humanity is on the still degree. We have the still, vegetative and animate and speaking levels in the human race. We belong to the speaking degree and beneath us we also have the animate, the vegetative and the still race of mankind.  So we will try to bring as many of them as possible, to bring them closer to us but we should know that besides man we have to correct all the rest just like we build a Sukkah, all the rest we take them and from them we build these components, ingredients, carriers of the Sukkah, so by that they take part in it. We will see how they will take part through all of these troubles that are now coming. They will greatly influence humanity. Humanity in the end will bow their head and they will agree with everything that's happening. They will come and they will actually tell us do whatever you see fit as you understand it - we just want to be under your influence it will happen soon.

8.S. (31:39) Can the ten actually demand: give us a restriction, screen and reflected light can this be a prayer?

R. Certainly the prayer can come from the ten with a demand to the Creator: we want it this way, we want it that way - give us this, give us that. But that can be, but only on the condition that it will be in the right path, in the right time. That is, are you asking for something that you deserve now? Let's say a baby is crying and he wants to eat but he doesn't demand some piece of meat because besides milk, he cannot accept anything. So first it is about the nature of what you want to receive. That's one thing. Second is that he wants something that doesn't harm him, and third that he is asking correctly so that the mother would know even - usually she does know but maybe she wants him to know how to ask: so that he will learn, so he will advance towards her. So there are few conditions there, but if you understand these conditions pretty much then turning to the Creator is a Mitzvah, a commandment. This is the only thing he's waiting for. That you will turn to Him.

9.S. (33:08) Is it possible that we've come to the first stage of the stage of spirituality that you talked about in the introduction to the lesson and we're not aware of it? Because the years have been passing and you know perhaps we've come to something but we're not aware of it. The question is, is it possible that we are in a state that you're talking about but unaware of it?

R. We are actually in the end of correction. However the question is:  are all of these spiritual states under our control? So that we are in control of them? The Creator wants us to seemingly build reality out of this broken reality that he has brought to us. Just like we bring inside a box from the shop, from the store we bring the puzzle to the kid and we want him to put it together. We are willing to sit next to him and together with him seemingly to do it, but we want him to do it - why? Because by him putting together these things he starts to understand how it works. He starts to be in control over creation, he starts to be like the Creator. When he finishes the puzzle then he becomes like the Creator and he reaches adhesion with Him and understanding, awareness, eternity, wholeness -  just like the upper force. That’s the purpose. So we perform many actions of preparation and now we're advancing and going forward in a more methodical way because only now are we entering a state called the last generation.

S. Nevertheless, is there a possibility that some ten in the world Kli are in that state?

R. As much as I understand it, no. If you're talkin about true correct connection? No.

S. So we're at the lowest layer?

R. At the lowest layer - that's not a problem. Soon we will also be in such a state. I'm asking if you please come down Yud Dalet, and come along with us and let's continue. Thank God we're still together. Okay?

10.S. (36:20) What is meant by this feast, these holidays we see the effects of religions-  can you explain?

R. This holiday is called Sukkot in the wisdom of Kabbalah. A tabernacle. How shall I say - Sukkah is that we build a temporary dwelling, residence where if I take a stroll in the forest and I want to build some structure for a single night, let's say, so like a hut so I take a few branches from the trees and I cover them and I sit inside like this. You know, one meter on each side and this is called a Sukkah. You can build a big Sukkah, you can build it to be tall but actually Sukkah means a temporary residence, a temporary place where a person is. We will learn why it is only transient. Why is it forbidden to build a Sukkah that is strong and make it like a house? No, you actually can make it only like something that is temporary. We will see why it has to be so. We will reach that. I would like to add that we are learning these things gradually on the path: the way that we should build the Kli and arrange ourselves so that we will somehow match ourselves to these stages. We went through the recognition of evil, then we went through what is this evil,  which is a will to receive and we must not use it. This is called the day of atonement, Yom Kippur. Then we went through, and now we're going through - well before that we had Rosh Hashanah: where we made up our mind that we were going on the path. Now after making a restriction, Yom Kippur,  we are building the Kli - the Kli of Binah, to bestow, in order to bestow. Later on we will also reach the general complete Kli of receiving in order to bestow. We want to reach a state where we discover the Creator who is dwelling in the whole of reality, and we feel him and understand him. We have direct contact with the upper force who is managing the whole of reality, and we will be in constant permanent contact, connection with him. The whole of humanity should reach that and this world rises above its corporeality. Corporeality disappears wherever we now live and what we feel, and we rise to the truth to the spiritual truth, to the spiritual degree. There,  this is where we need to exist eternally.

11.S. (40:08) For many years we've worked together in this time of the year building a Sukkah, we built a largest one in the world. Yesterday I got to be in the equipment shed and I looked at all the cables and all the equipment and it was like a point in ancient history. So what is the reason we went from a strongly physical state of working together, and certainly there was great importance and great excitement in that -  and now each one sits in his own square on the monitor and we do everything internally while everything is lying there in the tool shed in the warehouse.

R. And doesn't your heartache?

S. No, I feel happy together preparing for Sukkot in the lesson. Many years we used to work physically up there, and there was great inspiration, all the friends, together and the world  would Kli come to Israel.

R. That is true. We don't quite understand what this changes, we don’t understand these changes that were going through on the one hand. We do miss that. We do miss things where we sit together and we sing and we eat and we do all kinds of things. It is missing. That's on the one hand. On the other hand we have to understand why the Creator took it away from us. He truly forcefully took it away and he's not giving us this possibility even if we will sit, we will have to sit following these laws of the coronavirus keeping a distance of 2 metres from each other. In short He's not allowing it. He's not allowing it. Apparently this is the form that we have to feel ourselves in for the time being. We're not capable of being close to one another. We will get to recognize, to know that our ego, our will to receive - is not allowing us or giving us the ability to come closer and we will correct it. Until this whole partition of the coronavirus will be cancelled, and we will be able to truly be in an embrace with one another no matter where we are. Through the corrections that we are going to do now - we will rise above the corporeality to the degree of bestowing in order to bestow and then we will no longer feel the physical distances between us and indeed we will be under a single thatch under a single Sukkah and all of the worldwide Bnei Baruch and later the whole world will enter  into the Sukkah. Apparently this is what we have to do and this is why, this is why we are in such a state where on the one hand it is truly a shame about the way it was before but everything that the Lord does, it is all, everything He did and does, it is all for the better and we have to accept these states insuch a way and continue onward. So on the one hand there is sorrow. I do feel some sorrow about what is happening, about the fact that we've lost something from the path and we invested so much in the Sukkah and all of these things. We will see if next year we will be able to build this Sukkah or maybe we will already feel the Sukkah - and for sure we do want to feel the true spiritual Sukkah - and it's called a Sukkah of peace. Sukkah Shalom.

S. The state you're describing well that's a blessing. If so then it's very good, it's a new degree. We don't have to obtain something internal that will include all people in the world?

R. I'm telling you on the one hand for sure this is how I see things, but on the other hand there is also something where we were able to do it physically, to have at least some kind of connection between us and we lost that as well. Maybe, for sure it is to our benefit that we will reach a higher spiritual form, but it seems to me that the physical form also either it will come back to us, until we reach the complete correction. But if we do reach the complete correction  it is considered that we reach the Sukkah Shalom, the Sukkah of the entire world where the whole of humanity is entering beneath the screen, the Masach and the Masach would be to bestow in order to bestow, also to receive in order to bestow. That is the true Sukkah, the Sukkah of David. Because King David, Malchut who becomes corrected. Corrected in receiving in order to bestow, so that the Masach above is not separating, but rather connecting everyone who is beneath the screen with the Creator who is on the outside.  Then He comes to us as a guest into our Sukkah, He also fills us and He adds to the light of Chassidim his light of Chochmah Himself. Well all of this we will study how we do it, how do we reach these stages, and hopefully we won't only learn it but actually implement it in practice.

12.S. (47:00) What is the special state of sitting?

R. Sitting, that means that we don't stand. We sit either on the floor, on the ground or we sit on a stone as it was in the past, or on a chair, or on a sofa. There's all kinds of ways to sit but sitting means Katnut, smallness, where I diminish myself, I have no legs, no vessels of reception. Where I'm like a baby who cannot use his feet, his legs so that's what we mean by sitting.  So anyone who's in a state of sitting, he's willing to restrict himself, diminish himself and by that he's ready to enter into a connection with others. That's the meaning of sitting and everyone has to sit together in a circle under the thatch and I hope we have to actually come to that.

13.S. (48:25) Can we say that when we build the Sukkah we build in fact a Partzuf that is the restriction of Yom Kippur?

R. Correct, after Yom Kippur after the restriction we now start building the Partzuf although in Katnut, smallness under the thatch only with the light of Chassidim, but this is the beginning of the construction of the Partzuf, correct.

14.S. (49:08) How can we bridge the gap created by not having a meal together -  we're failing in implementing what should we do?

R. We don't do it because you don't deserve it. This is what we can now do. This is what the Creator is allowing us to do for now. Because we deserve nothing more. That's how it is.

15.S. (49:51) Can we simply say that the screen is actually the cover that we hide behind the friends in the ten, and we relate to the Creator by serving the others?

R. The Masach, screen is the power to resist our will as we learn in the Preface to the Wisdom of Kabbalah or in TES, we learn what the Masach is. We have the will to receive and we have to make a restriction so as not to use the will to receive completely. Then we say: no we can use the will to receive a little bit otherwise how can we come into contact with the Creator?  But on the will to receive we place a Masach, screen. Screen which is a restriction, and then a screen where we can use the will to receive if it works in order to bestow. That's the meaning of the Masach. The Masach is the power to resist the will to receive in it's direct form, the will to receive. But if I use it in order to bestow to the host then that's permissible. When I'm sitting facing the Host and there's refreshments in front of me and I say no no no no no thank you - I don't want any of it. I'm not hungry. Later I tell him:  look I understand that this isn't nice so I take something, I take a little something off the plate, some delicacy, I take it and I eat. What do I eat? Meaning I receive pleasure from him but my thought is that by this I give him pleasure, I delight Him. So the reception of the pleasure I must enjoy what I receive from Him but I wrap this pleasure up, the pleasure I receive from Him, it's wrapped up, it's all for him, and then I feel the pleasure I've received. I feel that it's wrapped around with my Ohr Chozer, reflected light and in such a way I can enter my will to receive and then I enjoy both the refreshments and the fact that I've given contentment or pleasure to the host. So I have two forms of pleasure that I receive in this way. That way it's permissible for us to enjoy and in that we resemble the Creator - he gives us pleasure and by us receiving from Him we give him pleasure. I have no way of giving Him pleasure unless I receive in that way because I don't have vessels of bestowal. I only have vessels of reception.

16.S. (54:15) Spiritually are we under the Sukkah all year long?

R. From the moment we build the Sukkah on, the thatch, the first screen and come under it with the force of bestowal then it can be said that we remain under it all the time through to the end of correction. But we don't have to be under the Sukkah for over a week.  Because a week, it is like the 7,000 years, it's like the whole of creation and so if we observe this, then after this week it is as though we are travelling with the Sukkah above us all the time. We've got the Masach we clothe ourselves with it and we continue on with .....Chag Chanukah, Tikkun of all Purim.... these stages right now what we need is to rise to faith above reason again in practice and the Sukkah symbolizes this for us. The shade of faith.

17.S. (56:12) Can we say that the Sukkah is like The Garden of Eden?

R. No. 

18. S. (57:11) Which restriction do the people of the world need where we build the screen and invite them to join us, what restriction do all the people of the world go through so that we are building the screen and asking them to join us?

R.  I have this blacklist where I put people who have bad microphones and then I never let them ask - if you try asking again you won't get to. if you disregard the connection between us then I disregard the connection between you, I have no choice as this is the only way I can teach you to fix your microphone and ask another time.

19. S. (58:10) You said that inside of the Sukkah there is the feeling of the light of Chassidim which is the Kli of the light above reason - can we say that the light of Chassidim is that I ascribe each and everything to the Creator?

R.  Yes of course.

20. S. (58:43) What is the meaning of a spiritual meal in the Sukkah together?

R.  A  meal means to receive in order to bestow all of those lights, the fulfillment that you receive, and so the Seudah, meal, especially as a ten that we hold under the Sukkah symbolizes the connection between us with a common screen above us we enter connection with the Creator and we receive from Him in order to bestow, it is a great thing.

21. S.  (59:29) We have performed many actions with our hands and our legs, people have put in much exertion. And now taking on a different form we see it in Congress as we see the Rosh Hashanah, Yom  Kippur and now in Sukkot what should we learn from this transition from externality to internality. What is the most important thing that needs to change in us?

R.  With all of our energies, with all our strength - as we used to have a big Sukkah where we could receive any guests, anyone who came. We very much hope to create such a Sukkah in even more meaningful way during this holiday of Sukkot. In our connection all around the world, where we let our mind, our emotion and our imagination, our vessels of sensation -  such an impression where we feel that we are sitting in the Sukkah. That we are sitting in the Sukkah together all of us, all of the world. 

S. So this is something that we should include in our intention and in our thoughts or how do we do this?

R.  We need to be together and to imagine to ourselves that we are together in one heart - with a single thought, under the single Creator, under a single screen where we don't want to receive from Him but only to bestow to Him. And that’s what we’ll build. You wait, we have a few days and we will prepare ourselves and we will constantly try to do such exercises and perhaps we will attain the essence: the meaning of the spiritual Sukkah. Because again there is nothing that comes from the heavens for no reason, that which is redundant,  it all comes in order to promote us. You are elevated in holiness never demoted, and I very much hope that we are going to attain something new, although with that I will tell you that I greatly regret the fact  that we are not together  in the Sukkah as we had it. Because that’s corporeality also, attested to something. I remember how much Rabash was concerned about his Sukkah, how we would build all the decorations and everything and all sorts of things. And how he related to the Sukkah with awe. And here today we are as if neutered. But that’s not actually true. We will be able to build these things in our hearts, in our sensations - if we learn and we study good and well. We have 10 days and we will build constantly, build in our knowledge, in our feelings, in our imagination - wherever we can and however. We will build our first spiritual vessel called Sukkah.

22. S. (1:03:20)  I hear that you say it is good that we are on a new degree, how beautiful it is that we are building at in such a way, and on the other hand I also regret very much that we can't do it physically - so how do we hold the good and the joy together with the fact that we regret it?

R.  I think that all we have today are conditions which force us to work spiritually, in a spiritual way. We don't have the option to now occupy ourselves with all of the wood and iron, and that is all the work. Instead we have to invest all of that effort into the construction of the spiritual connection between us. That is how it was done from above and we have to accept it as advancement. This is the next stage, we moved up a grade. Now we need to build the connection between us called the Sukkah with all of its details. And to invest all of our time and efforts in scrutinizing the connection between us because by that we build a vessel called faith above reason - which is the first spiritual vessel in which we feel that we are in a connection with the Creator through the thatch, and that we are connected with each other, and in practice we enter the spiritual state. That is why this option was taken from us. The option of building the Sukkah as we used to, and we will do it more humbly each one in his own house if you can and that is what we will do.

S.  How do we convert and transform all the forces that we invested as we used to invest: in days upon days in building. How do we take all of these forces and direct them towards what you talked about:  building the spiritual Kli?

R.  That is what we all need to think. Especially those who used to build and knew what needs to be done -  they invested days and nights into this, to build it. We need to do that, we need to transfer all of these things to spirituality, to spiritual work. It’s like today,  we have meals. What do we have in the meals? I drink a bottle of beer and a sandwich and that's sufficient. It used to be big meals where we sit together and we sing. We need to bring all of the difficulty of this undertaking into spirituality, to spirituality.

23. S. (1:06:50) Can you give us advice on how to build the Sukkah in the ten through the spiritual advice you gave us? 

R. We will learn that together that is something that is still ahead of us to do.

24. S. (1:07:18) In order to reach the right prayer between us through the ten in connection in order to be rewarded with this force called faith above reason, Gilad read  that we have to depict it as if we are already there so my question is how can we connect these two states where between as if and reaching the right prayer what is the connection between the two of them?

R.  We need to play at it as if you know like children and by that we invite the reforming light and it builds these qualities in us in truth and that is how we reach the truth. Acting or playing is a very serious thing and we need to use it. It is clear to us that it is all an act but in these relationships we have in the group we understand that we are still egoistic but it is as though we are still together and we still want to help each other as if we want to rise above our ego and from all of these make-believe efforts and we do want to help each other because we understand that we depend upon each other, we raise a prayer to the Creator all of this is egoistic and all the way as if. But by that we draw the reforming light and then from as if it becomes the truth.

25. S.  (1:09:08) This process of building the Sukkah is some kind of a painful process?

R.  No, if we do everything correctly it is pure pleasure. If we do anything in spirituality and together it is only pleasure. There is nowhere and no situation in which we need to suffer. If you have some suffering somewhere it is an indication that it is not spiritual. That you are doing the work improperly. It is like Rabash writes about the one carrying the suitcase, if you carry the suitcase and it's heavy it's a sign that it's not the right suitcase. You picked up something wrong, because the suitcase you need to carry is light, so light in fact that it is not you carrying the suitcase but rather the suitcase carries you. It is called the casket which bears the bearer.

S.  Do the women have a role in this work?

R. That isn't related to the suitcase but the role of the woman is to assist as much as possible so that all of us together, men and women both, will come to the correction to faith above reason. There is nothing in which a woman cannot participate. They can participate in everything just not mixed with us men. Next to us, because we don't want to engage and all sorts of mixing with the women so it doesn't distract.

26. S. (1:11:30) You answered Todd and Michael about how to build the screen in our ten and you said we'll get there. What state are we in now and what do we need to achieve now so that we will be able to get to these points?

R.  We will need to go over Rabash’s articles on society again, all of you, very simple. We will try to find in them what else it is that we lack. Something that we need to do that we haven't done yet and we will do that and we will get there.

*Letter 36 “the Festival of Sukkot explains...”  Reader (1:12:34 - 1:21:57)*

37. R. From here it becomes clear to us that building the Sukkah means building the first stage of the correction of the Soul where is egoistic desires connect, 10 of them together and in mutual bestowal they build the power of general bestowal between them such that the Creator can eliminate upon them through their connection in the light of Chassidim for now. That is the meaning of them being in the Sukkah afterwards they add more and more of their will to receive to in order to bestow and they come out of the Sukkah and they come to receive even the light of the sun in order to bestow. Meaning the light of Chochmah in order to bestow until the darkness shines as the lights and they come to the end of correction. But the first stage is to reach the vessel of Binah, The vessel of faith, The vessel of bestowing to bestow between all of the friends in from them to the Creator. That is Sukkot, that is the holiday of Sukkot.

38. S. (1:23:29)  Why are there holes in the Masach and it is not like a mirror that reflects the light?

R. We must receive the light of Chochmah in order for the light of Chassidim to exist in us because we work with the will to receive and the will to receive feels only the light of wisdom. When it doesn't want to receive the light of Chochmah for itself that means that it is establishing the light of Chassidim and then this thatch needs to be not a stone roof but it has to be built of wood through which some of the light of sun can penetrate.

39. S.  (1:24:21) What is the light of the sun in the ten that we have to put a cover on?

R. The light that comes from the sun is called the light of Chochmah, the great light and we cannot receive it in order to bestow. That is why I after the restriction that we make on Yom Kippur the day of atonement we build a thatch, a shield, a screen so that the light of the sun will start passing after the restriction that it will start gradually shining upon us and that is the meaning of us receiving only through the light of Chassidim so that we establish ourselves with the light of Chassidim for 7 days because this is the Guf, body of the Partzuf, Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, Malchut, after having built the vessel for the light of Chassidim and faith above reason we can continue on and that we will discuss after Sukkot. We have some special customs in Sukkot where we examine the shade and the shadow even though we never did that with Rabash,  but there are such customs. After that is the holiday that comes is called Simchat Torah which is called the joy of the Torah where we become worthy of receiving the light through the screen that we established in Sukkot and so we receive a revelation of the upper light for us. The beginning of the revelation of the upper light towards us which is called Simchat Torah which comes after Sukkot and it all progresses according to the building of the best, gradually one state after the other.

40. S.  (1:27:04) What is a shade of faith and how do we awaken that in the group?

R.  The shade of faith means that we don't want to receive anything from the Creator and we only want to be connected together amongst ourselves because we understand that we cannot accomplish anything  more than that at the moment. First of all we need to make an active connection between us and connection between us is possible only through bestowal between us and so we say that we need the light of faith.

S.  What is the meaning of us saying  that faith is built upon the waste, how is this expressed in the ten?

R.  Before you come to the work with the Creator you need to connect with the ten the whole ten together then can approach the Creator together and start working with them connecting to him and so forth. First of all building in the ten together is called building the Sukkah, this is called building your soul. Building the vessel where you work, there you need a group we need a group. Only 10 Sephirot, a Partzuf can approach the Creator with the work, so build it, build such a group  a soul that with it you can perform spiritual actions.

S. How do you work with the waste in the ten?

R.  Waste is not waste, it means that we build the Sukkah from waste means with what our ego, my will to receive doesn't want to work with, I take that as a force and as material to work with that is called waste. It is not waste something that you just toss away, it is what you usually toss away that my will to receive in my egoistic life doesn't want, that waste I take that and I build the vessels of bestowal that is why it is called faith above reason. That everything that seems to us that is not important in the vessels of reception and the vessels of bestow it is important and I raise it above my head and build the Schach from that.

41. S. (1:31:16) Whoever wants to be on the level of vegetative cannot rely upon reason there are many things that I don't understand here since everything that I do is a reason that I get from my experience but I can detach from my experience, all the decisions that I make even in realizing above reason at the end of the day they serve my own interest so how to build a screen?

R.  Very correct and to-the-point question but I cannot answer it but throughout this week gradually you will see how you get an answer about this.

42. S. (1:32:27) I don't want to connect to the friends I want to disrespect them, I don't want to think about connection so how does all of this waste how can I use it?

R.  Very nice question, try to take all of these rejections from society from everything that belongs to bestowal, try to observe them as if they are precious things and then you will see what faith above reason is.  For you was above faith all the time the reason was more important what you understand what you feel, what you have and now no, now it is the opposite. Now you raise these things that are important for the connection between you and the friends. Meaning all of those things that aren't beneficial for connections with the friends and through them with the Creator, you don't see them as important. Those that do connect to you with the friends in the Creator that is what you raise above your head. Exercises, thoughts, gradually, prayer that the Creator will help you calculate things to see these things as important whatever belongs to your connection with the friends that is the most important, there is nothing more important. Start. This is called that you have raised them above your head above your reason, that is called faith above reason the force of bestowal that is more important than the force of reception.

43. S. (1:34:55) How can we prepare because this is describing and we can feel in our bones what is being said so how can we see this as something internal together and not something outside of us?

R.  By persistence, everything will be clarified in thought, everything just be persistent in your thoughts with support from the friends you will see that it is not difficult. The problem is that you don't use the connection between you in order to strengthen the importance of the quality of bestowal between you.

44. S. (1:36:00) If we connect in the ten with the great friends and from the connection each one from their own desire wants to pull in a certain direction and they think that this would be the best way to reach bestowal even though each one feels that way I know himself and we agree that we want to agree to the Creator whatever he wants we will do is that considered building a Schach?

R.  If you discover as much as everyone will do what he thinks and then he wants the opposite meaning that he wants to annul himself towards the opinion of the group that is exactly what you have to do. Because where does the binah  come from binah take malchut  and inverting it and then the quality binah comes  instead of reception bestowal, from where? From that same desire that before works for itself and now started working for the others. That is how we turn Malchut into Binah,  who is Malchut the same Binah  it just works in an opposite way.

45. S.  (1:37:40) Can you say that the Schach above the head in the Sukkah is like a Kippah,that one puts on his head?

R.  I don't know these sayings Rosh, Kippah... you could say that it is a sign I didn't know that in the wisdom of Kabbalah we would get to such questions but okay. If it connects him to spiritual work it is good.

46. S. (1:33:38) It is as if we are in a process of building two Sukkot, one the Eternal Sukkah and on the other hand the one that is being built on the different level of reality one that engages in the imaginary reality, family Etc how do I combine these two processes?

R.  Don't think about the external world let it shatter according to what the Creator is doing to it, don't get into it, it is not your business you can't do anything, you don't understand anything. You build what you are supposed to be doing to build a connection in the ten and with the ten connect with the Creator and with the Creator together, start making order in the world. For now the world will be shattered more and more, you don't even know what is going on, we are still going through the shattering while it is all falling and shattering levels by levels, floors by floors. Let the world break and we will see later on what is left of it if anything will be left. Then we will start seeing that exactly the structure we are building vessel The vessel of bestowal, the spiritual vessel the connection between us a connection with the Creator it will be exactly suitable for that shattering that the world will come to and we'll be able to come and exactly they will understand us and we will be able to start working with them by the adaptation between us in order to correct the whole world. That is what is going to happen, don't get into the world, let it just shatter, during the shattering it is called a certain time, a certain force for the destructor to come and this is what has to happen. This is what has to take place, we can not get into this. Obviously you can publish the wisdom as we always do, advertise it. I always say we have to explain what is going on, what and why and that the remedy for corona is only unity but in the end in practice it will happen in a way that we will reach a shattering and that for now we will build our vessel for correcting the shattering. Then we will come to them and we will start correcting along with them together. That's it.

47. S. (1:41:46) Rabash writes faith saves a person from those that harm him, who are those that harm him?

R.  The harming things are the things in the person that want to receive in order to receive those are the ones that harm and no more than that.

48. S. (1:42:17) Our actions in the ten, the prayer, work above reason do they unite to build the Sukkah?

R.  Yes, of course every action we do in the group and connection between us, our states that help us advance to building the vessel, our soul, the general soul. The first structure the soul received that it builds itself of the shattered parts is called the vessel of Chassidim, mercy, Emunah, faith, Katnut, smallness or Sukkah, it is all the same thing we are speaking about a structure that for now is in the mutual force of bestowal, internal, Mutual.

49. S. (1:43:33) It is written in the article about two states first of all it is written that if a person does not add on his own on his own account the shade, the light is concealed from him, also if he doesn't add then the shade is added to him from above, what does it mean that the sun is concealed in the ten?

R.  If they do everything to connect between them and then that mutual bestowal to reach bestowing to the Creator that is called that they are building the shade. If they don't want that but only demand to receive then everything is concealed from them from above. That is how it works.

50. S. (1:44:26) In the work in the ten do we build the Sukkah above the desire of the ten or above the desire of all of humanity?

R.  From me knowing as much as I have to resist my egoistic will to receive I connect to the friends and so together that we can overcome our will to receive in the ten and that is already sufficient for us to connect to and start building together with him a state called Sukkah.   For now let humanity go it is too big to expand the Sukkah is not a problem let us first build it in a minimal way that it works, that it is functioning, that the vessel of the soul is in the 10 Sephirot and connected with the Creator and is in Katnut, smallness, in the light of Chassidim, faith above reason and that is it. The initial state, it is all on standby and from here on we can start working.

51. S. (1:46:04) To what extent Rabash  gives importance to the holiday of Sukkot?

R.  Not only Rabash  but all of the Kabbalists really  respect this state called Sukkot, the Sukkah, it is also a holiday of the common people that they always celebrated, the Torah writes about it. That they used to go from place to place and they used to build the Sukkah that is why it is called Sukkot and so on. It is very important as you see we can't without this holiday, meaning without this state that we go through you can't bestow in order to bestow, called the light of Chassidim, Katnut, smallness, the shade, the screen, without all of this you cannot advance it is the first state of correction. There is a state of correcting the vessel that is Sukkot, the stage where you acquire the light of Chassidim and after that we start using the will to receive in order to bestow that is already correcting the will to receive. That comes after.

52. S. (1:47:34) Must Bnei Baruch have a screen to serve humanity?

R.  Without a screen we won't be able to perform any true action that is why we need a screen, every ten and from all of the tens and from all of Bnei Baruch in order to be the conduit between the Creator to humanity you. Of course. This conduit, this pipeline is mainly in the best vessel of bestowal, faith above reason that we take the will to receive from humanity and pass it to the Creator from the Creator we received the light of Chochmah for humanity and the light of Chassidim everything needed and we pass it on to humanity that is our role, our duty to be the one to connect them.

53. S. (1:48:47) When we think about the waste that lack of desire to work, we raise that above our head from that we build the covering, alongside of that we speak about the connection between us as the connection that we raised above all of the rejections and that connection is above all so what are we covered by the Sukkah?

R.  We do everything from within the Sukkah, the Sukkah is like all of the Schach, when we are in the forest and we want to sleep overnight so we build like a little place where we can go into, put your sleeping bag in there and you go to sleep just to do it not like today where you buy a tent at the store, we build it from the trees. From everything you can find in the forest that's it. We are all going there and only there we are and that symbolizes that we are concealed under the Masach,screen and we only want to be in the light of Chassidim in Katnut, hiding from the light of Chochmah. We can't receive the light of Chochmah that it will be in order to receive that is why we are like children, we hide under the screen and that is where we are, and only if we can even a bit let the light of Chochmah shine we can open a small place in the Schach for the light rays to come through this symbolizes as much as we are able to receive in order to bestow.

S. The Schach, what are all of these materials?

R. From the trees, trees are what you find in the field, from something that grows in the field from whatever grows from the field, we will learn about it.  There are a lot of laws that are interesting about it. You can't be in the shade under a tree you have to yourself build that shade, you can't take materials that don't come from the vegetative, say plastic you can't use it to build a Sukkah it has to be from something that is like you, from the living degree, so you can take from the vegetative degree and build from that. You can't build a Sukkah from wood that has been made by a machine that was sliced from wood and they made things from them. It has to be as natural as possible, all of these things are symbols, signs that you actually have to make it from yourself. We will speak about it. On every little small detail there is a reason that stems from the essence of the soul.

54. S. (1:53:19) When we learned about the shattering you promised that we wouldn't have the shattering again, so what is a shattering that we're experiencing today?

R.  What shattering do you see today?

S.  A few minutes ago you said let the world shatter.

R. The world is falling a little bit from all of those egoistic desires that it climbed upon, that is not a shattering. You need to read a few things that are a bit more general about the structure of reality, how it took place. The flood, all of these things that have happened in history, the big events that happened to the will to receive, but now it's not a shattering, it's not anything. We have reached complete exaggeration in the way that we use our will to receive that is why the Creator in great mercy and great love is bringing us back to the state that is closer to the correction. Very simple, you will see how the world looks after all of the corrections, it will be completely different than what happened. We were destroying the earth with waste and pollution and we caused such a global warming that we've fried ourselves that the whole land of the earth was like a frying pan. That we used to fry it on. there was no ability to breathe anymore and the generations are just going and disconnecting and disappearing from our children and suddenly along comes a force from above and starts organizing us. That is called a shattering? That's not a shattering, it's called a correction. We were in a good state and also in the right tendency, what are you saying? It was a horrible direction, what the Creator is doing with us is great corrections.

55. S. (1:56:10) What is the first action that our ten needs to do today to start building our Sukkah?

R.  That is called building the screen above us above the ego so through the screen meaning the intention to bestow we can connect to the Creator that is called to build the Sukkah.

S.  What is the first branch of the Schach of the Sukkah? Is it a prayer?

R.  Prayer is always good. It should escort every action that we make, for certain the Creator is performing all of the corrections that we do.

56. S. (1:57:40) For quite a while the friends in the ten to feel tired from the sun so where do we get the strength from?

R.  You do not have forces because you are not connected, that's it, that is my answer. You are not connected is why you don't have forces.

S.  How to connect?

R.  I don't know. Look, what is written and look at what Rabash writes  and try if it doesn't work pray to the Creator, I cannot help you anymore. But for sure you have all the conditions to reach connection and implementation of the whole will to receive, your connection you can reach as you have everything. Just start realizing it.

57. S. (1:59:01) Can you understand the screen as the ability to be above our desires? If so does the degree of Sukkot allow us to acquire that ability?

R.  Yes.

58. S. (1:59:40) You set up Rabash  how he invested in the Sukkah and how he decorated it could you elaborate so we can connect to the Rabash.

R.  No it is not important for today, what it is important I will tell you about, what isn't important you can read on your own and if you want to think about it I am giving you what is important today and that is it according to the time and according to the states.

59. S. (2:00:32) Can we say that what we put above our head is the exertion towards bestowal?

R.  Correct.

S.  So a ten that sits in the Sukkah wanting to do everything that Rabash aims us toward is that what we put above our heads?

R.  Yes.

60. S. (2:01:00) The Sukkah is a temporary home and we build the Sukkah from the waste and then we have to leave it and it is also a Masach.

R.  You said it nicely. It is a temporary place that we hide in from the sun. I built the shade, the screen, the reflected light and from that I reach the state where I start building a larger screen to receive in order to bestow. Then it is not a Sukkah you got any more it is all really a whole building called the Beit haMikdash, the Temple, that I built a home for a sanctuary, sanctity for where the light of Chochmah is revealed and the light of Chassidim that is called that the Creator is revealed which is the light of Chochmah in the light of Chassidim to the created beings and that is already a building that is going ahead and being built and it is not temporary but it is constant and we are in states that we are building a Sukkah that won't be destroyed that it will become the Third Temple which is constant, permanent, Eternal and existing.

61. S. (2:02:47) What is the waste that is suitable to work between us for a suitable screen?

R.  We had a question like that it's too bad you weren't listening but I will repeat, the waste is called what we don't need, meaning the winery and the barn, things that you don't use.  When you prepare the wine and everything that is left from the grapes, all of the peels that is the waste. When you use things from the barn where you process everything you are left with things that you can't make anything from that is the waste of the barn, so you have the waste of the barn and the winery.  It is mainly waste from bread and waste from wine or bread is against the light of Chassidim and wine comes against the light of Chochmah so you have waste from this and waste from that from this.  Waste whatever you don't need, the vessels have reception specifically don't need it and specifically from then you be Schach, the Sukkah,  meaning what your will to receive does not want you take it in from that you build things that are important spiritually to the will to bestow. In this way you build the thatch, Masach, and you start receiving the light of Chassidim in order to bestow even though you are not really bestowing with it but it is because you don't want to receive.  You want to be with the landlord to sit at the same table with him but you still don't get anything from the table but you are already there present with the landlord just as he doesn't receive you don't receive and that is called that you are already in the beginning of the correction.  Then you acquire the screen in order to receive in order to bestow. You then start coming out of the matter of limitations and you receive the light of Chochmah in order to bestow and correct your vessel. We will go through all of these stages don't worry we have the time, it won't escape us, the Creator will still organize all of these things gradually. Start trying to feel as much as he is activating and managing, leading us, that he is taking us by the hand like a baby and taking us through all of this.

62. S. (2:06:05) From working on the Tzimtzum in this term appears the Masach what is the difference between the restriction and the screen.

R.  We learn this in a lot of places Pticha and TES, 

S.  What builds the Tzimtzum and the Masach?

R.  Restriction is that I restrict my will to receive, it is written that he really wants to receive any makes a restriction not to receive. A screen is beyond not receiving, I start to receive in order to bestow to the landlord that is already the work of the screen. 

63. S. (2:07:01) Who decides that the receiving Kli  is considered waste is it the person, the ten the Creator and when does this decision occur?

R. My egoistic will to receive lets me understand what waste is and isn't whatever it doesn't want is waste. If it's good for building actions of bestowal, What my ego does not want this is what I use to build the actions of the will to bestow with. 

64. S. (2:07:44) How to overcome the natural egoistic desire and be above it? 

R.  Don't think about it, think about bestowal, don't think how to overcome your will to receive but how to bestow. That is more beneficial then you will see that it is possible and the will to receive just leave it, don't deal with it don't try to overcome it you just engage in bestowing and you will see that it will work. also from your working bestow you will get help from the friends and this is how you will advance,  Even if it is bestowing in order to receive a bit this is also not bad the main thing is to deal with bestowing to the friends to build the ten in a way that you are engaging in bestowal and the rest leave it to the Creator that is called the Creator will finish the job for me.

65. S. (2:09:03) You said we need to see that it is the Creator who is guiding us, sometimes it is difficult to see this, how do we really feel and see if that the Creator is the one who is guiding us in this process?

R.  You don't feel from day-to-day that the Creator is leading you and guiding you, what he is doing with the whole world, lowering and lowering and giving us more and more Torah, understanding, feeling connection advancement you don't see all of this? I see it taking place right here before me and how can I say it? It is a war between the forces of good and the forces of evil. Light and darkness. We are in the battlefield and the Creator is doing all of this, try and see it and ask some more and don't be embarrassed.

66. S. (2:10:29) What is the value of dissemination together within the ten when it comes to raising more of the waste to use a thatch for the Sukkah?

R.  Waste means the thoughts and desires that I do not want to use with my ego to give, to help, to think about the others about the world, about the friends, I don't want that. When I raise my thoughts and desires in importance more than all other things that is called that I build the screen and then under that Schach,  meaning concerns about the others in connection with the ten, connection between tens, bestowing from all of us to the Creator all of these things are above my head and I want specifically in such a way to live. For me to live specifically in that way and that is how I want to advance. That is called that I used the waste of the winery and barn. We have 10 days in the holiday of Sukkot and we will work and we will speak about all of this, don't worry as it will all settle in more and more and you will forget and you will ask again and again and so on as usual. But it is all corrections even if you ask the second time like you forgot and I'm not happy about it and I scream at you, it is all corrections there is no such thing that something happens twice. That is why we will advance.

*Excerpt 1 Reader (2:12:49 -  2:13:40)*

67. R. Here we can already start speaking after all the introduction which is 2 hours and 15 minutes now we can start speaking about the excerpts that our Sages who prepared the lesson from us, thought that we could start the lesson with this. So Sukkot is happiness, why happiness? The good deeds, the actions of bestow or called happiness that is considered rejoicing Gevurot, meaning overcoming that I overcome my will to receive to a state of bestowal and that is happiness, which is repentance from love. That I reach such a state with the Creator even though it is not truly repentance from love but the sins become for him as merits, there is a time that the sins become mistakes, afterwards in the end when we perform all of the corrections in Sukkot, so the sins become as merits that is something that we will work with later. 

*Excerpt 2 Reader (2:15:17 - 2:15:45)*

68. R. It means what the Creator commanded upon us to correct our will to receive with entirely at the intention to bestow because our will to receive is divided into 620 parts then we have to make 620 corrections each and every correction that we perform on our will to receive from receiving to bestowing that is called that we perform a Mitzvot, we perform a command from the Creator that is why we have an obligation to correct our will to receive in each and everyone and in all of us together. Those are the desires to receive in order to bestow so how do we do this? First of all by the Light of Binah, the light of bestowal or in the shade with the screen and the reflected light that is why the faith as he writes it comes out against all of the Mitzvot because of the force of bestowal has to be riding upon all of the shattered desires and correct them in order to bestow that is called complete faith. That is why what does he write? The Sukkah is faith, a shadow of faith, naturally we understand that faith is equal to all the Mitzvot that is to the extent of the faith,  so he observes the Mitzvot.  That by this he corrects them, that's why if you hear that you have to perform Mitzvot  that's what it means to invert our will to receive in order to bestow in each and every state that is possible that is called to perform a Mitzvot  and not any other way we don't interpret Mitzvot, the commands, only for reaching from in order to receive to the desire of in order to bestow the way we use it.

*Excerpt 3 Reader (2:18:24 - 2:19:50) reads twice*

69. R. To revive the dead meaning all of the will to receive, the wills to receive that are in order to receive are called dead and I use it in order to bestow that is called that I draw the light of Chassidim and from that the light of Chochmah can clothes and that says that everyone is revived. That is called the resurrection of the dead.

*Reader continues  Also one who has to Faith”..(2:20:16 -  2:20:24)*..

70. R.  There is nothing to be afraid of because he is all in order to bestow whoever overcomes his will to receive doesn't fear anything, what could happen? He doesn't calculate anything for himself this is what faith when we go with faith above reason that's what it does with us.

*Reader continues “... Say it comes from the word emun  as in trust...”(2:20:46 - 2:21:26)*

71. R. Meaning we don't need to do anything special here just with all of the data that the Creator gave us, we have to organize it correctly in order to bestow. I am sorry that here the language isn't too clear to us, we are not used to someone except for Baal HaSulam and Rabash  those who prepare our lesson put in sources that are different let's say, kind of alien to us

72. S. (2:22:13) We are beginning now this Chag and we are attaining a minimal level of faith of self annulment where we are developing this quality or do we stay on that degree all the time?

R.  What we attain we keep it and we are all concerned about the others, because nobody can be certain that anything will remain for him but man will help his friend only in a mutual way, only in Arvut  can one keep and guard the others, no one can watch upon himself in any way. If you are speaking about spiritual achievements, a moment that you are in something if you are not supported you lose it. That is why Arvut  has to be in anyone because you cannot keep anything In your vessel because it is only a point it is a pixel, you have to be connected to all of the other pixels at least in a ten. Then you can preserve that data that you have so that it remains and that is why that it says either Chevruta or Metuta, the friends the society or death because you instantly lose everything that you obtained, lose it instantly if you remain without connection to society. You have no place, you have no vessel, you have no memory of where you can store all of these things, it just stays in the 10 Sephirot, in the connection between them. We will still scrutinize where that memory that collective memory is, it is not in society, it is not like that in society, it is in the light.  We will learn these things, it is not important now, if we do it it will happen like with children, if he does something so he does something. As much as he understands or not that's not important, that is why if we now want to acquire each one of us.... only to the extent that you stay connected only to this state that you stay in the ten if it is in you it will disappear and be lost.

S. In the beginning of the holiday of Sukkot each one annuls himself towards the ten to each one adheres to one another and in our role to hold on to it during the holiday....

R. You need to keep developing this and don't pay attention that it disappears, if you are focused on the connection between you even if these things disappear then they do in order for you to receive something new and important, more important than before.

S.  Meaning there will be disturbances and we need above them to raise our waste?

R. Yes this means forgetful meaning you need to forget the things in order to move forward so they will be new in your eyes. You can see all of that from the path.

73. S. (2:26:45)  If we have true faith and there's no fear do we need fear to attain the true faith?

R.  We will need both fear and faith don't worry all of these things, but the fears will be different, they will be to the extent that I can possibly bestow a little bit more to the Creator and through the friends and maybe I didn't do that there will be concerns but concerns of the type of bestowal.

74. S. (2:27:36) If I want to be in connection with someone and I think about him, the problem is that the other person isn't thinking about me so what is my work, how can I even work?

R.  Your work is to give him gifts and to do all kinds of actions to make him want to be in connection with you, or maybe change maybe he doesn't want to be in connection with you because you're rude or you are unpleasant, he doesn't want to be in contact with you.

S.  The matter is if I want to cause connection and I don't have any feedback from the other ones there's no connection.

R.  You do have feedback, he doesn't want you, that is feedback.

S.  Feedback for the good I'm saying.

R.  For the good? Why do you think that he needs to respond to you positively?

S. ...

R. Did you buy him gifts, did you come to him pleasantly, did you try to interest him in connection with you?   Think about it and you will find ways to reach him positively that he won't turn you down.
