The Language Of The Single Soul
Rabash, “The Purpose of the Association”: We have gathered here in order to create a group in which every one of us will aspire to give pleasure to the Creator. However, in order to achieve this we must first learn to give pleasure or bestow to man. In other words, we must learn to love our neighbor. Only by suppressing one’s own egoism is it possible to carry out this commandment of love for one’s neighbor.
Sometimes Rabash’s articles appear confusing and disorganized. We don’t understand why he suddenly cites quotes from one place and then from another. Yet, we have to understand that a Kabbalist does not do anything accidentally. He expresses what he feels and his sensation is the Upper Light clothed into a corrected Kli. If we were in his place, we would write exactly the same thing!
Therefore, even if it seems to us that this text was written in a fashion that does not suit us, we have to understand that if we ascended and stood in his place we would write the same exact words. This is called following the method of Rabash and Baal HaSulam.

We suffer because we are not connected and exiting this situations is only through surplus connection.
A person needs to feel himself together with others, to try to be together, since the departure from all the situations can only be from connection. There is no other way. Each feeling we have, i.e., descent or ascent, bad mood, illness, anger, etc., comes from only one reason: in our world we are separated and in the world of Ein Sof (Infinity) we are connected.
Thus, the possibility to exit the situation and ascend is only if we cause a surplus of connection. A person can only try until he comes to the prayer because only the Light can save us.
Your favorite lamp broke? You drove your car into a lamppost? The heating system stopped working? Your boss chewed you out? Call it a kapara — an atonement for one of your wrongs, a carelessness you showed towards the Creator — and have a great day.
Have a great day. Have a great day. Have a great day. Have a great day.
Life is like a garden. The more effort we put into it, the more beautifully it grows. But when we leave it, weeds and thorns overrun it.
Where do we get the seeds — ideas and inspiration to make our garden flourish? We need to look to the One who is the landscaping artist of it all.
I heard from my master (the Baal Shem Tov): When a guest arrives, he brings his host Torah insights; for the Torah insights the host receives from Above correspond to the nature of his guests.
