The Creator’s “Obstacles”

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why is the Creator not revealed as good and benevolent but as putting obstacles?

Answer: The Creator doesn’t just set up obstacles for you; He created evil in you from the start. It is said, “I created the evil inclination.” That is, you are my beloved child, nothing good will come before you, only the greatest and most despicable evil. That is how I gave birth to you.

But at the same time, I give you a guidebook and want you to discover how harmful, jealous, lazy, and disgusting I made you. There is no good characteristic in you! Every evil, disgusting, repulsive, and hateful thing, everything that is opposite to me, I have put into you.

But I give you one point through which you can get out of this mud, the “point in the heart,” and the possibility of being linked to me through it.

And now we will see if you want this or not. If you will open love for me within yourself, you will leave this pile of garbage. Then you can ascend to me. And if you ask me in the right way, such that you appreciate my higher characteristics more than yours, then I will help you.

It is not enough that you sit within your evil and suffer. Does this indicate that you want to get rid of this garbage just to be free of the suffering?! What I want is that you will appreciate me and want to be like me. Then I will help you. Do it!
