Spreading the Wellsprings to the Outside!
The following is an excerpt from a holy letter written by the Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Yisroel ben Eliezer, zechuso yogein oleinu, Founder of Chassidism, to his brother-in-law Reb Gershon Kitover zt"l, who had gone on aliya to Eretz HaKodesh. Written 250 years ago, the letter describes the Baal Shem Tov's soul elevation to the supernal chamber of the Moshiach. The letter is printed at the beginning of Sefer Kesser Shem Tov:
"...I asked Moshiach, When will the Master come? He answered me: By this you shall know: At the time when your teachings will become publicized and revealed in the world, and your wellsprings will spread to the outside, that which I taught you and you comprehended, and they too will be able to achieve supernal unions and elevations as you do, then all extraneous forces will disappear and it will be a time goodwill and salvation..."
