We Build Spirituality Ourselves!

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When we are raising a child, we do our best to prepare him or her for life in this world, but how can we enter the spiritual world if we don’t have any idea what it is like?

Answer: A person who, after leaving his or her parents’ home, enters adult life and wants to succeed in it can lean on the life experience of other people. It doesn’t matter what he wants to be, whether it is a thief, a priest, a scientist, or just a seller at the market place. All of these models can be found in society.

However, a person who wants to advance spiritually doesn’t have any examples or support. He must build his environment on his own. After all, the only thing that fills all of reality is the upper Light, and there are no worlds without a person.

The instant that I activate my desire for spirituality, I immediately arrange all the worlds between myself and Infinity. It is as if I erect a ladder leading to the spiritual world that exists only in the form of Reshimot, spiritual information genes.

In the article “The Matter of Spiritual Attainment” from the book Shamati, Baal HaSulam writes that all the worlds with their multiple steps exist only relative to the souls. Therefore, I cannot demand, as we do on our world, to be taught how to behave in spirituality. I must form the spiritual world, which doesn’t exist, on my own.

It is my job to visualize how the upper one relates to me and how I relate to it. If what I see in my imagination matches the actual Reshimot, then everything is wonderfully arranged that very instant, according to the law of equivalence of form. If that doesn’t happen, spiritual reality doesn’t exist for me.

After all, it exists only relative to the person who reveals, constructs, and forms it. In other words, we are the ones who must build the spiritual world, and we need to turn to the Creator with a request that would match precisely to what is set up from Above in Reshimot.

Hence, in Hebrew the Creator is regarded as Boreh (Bo is “come” and Reh is “see”) since it is you who is creating Him. You are the one who builds this form.
