Everything In Order To Bestow

The Torah, “Exodus,” 32:30-32: And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people: “Ye have sinned a great sin; and now I will go up unto the LORD, peradventure I shall make atonement for your sin.” And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said: “Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them a god of gold. Yet now, if Thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray Thee, out of Thy book which Thou hast written.”

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: It turns out that Moses gives up the ascent to the upper world. But how can one give up eternity?

Answer: When a person is on the level of Moses, on the level of the attribute of bestowal, the level itself dictates what he does. Being in this attribute, a person cannot see himself, his own existence, and the fulfillment of his form in any other way. If there is no fulfillment, he doesn’t exist either, since unless it is fulfilled, the attribute of Moses leads to nothing. It’s similar to the state in which Baal HaSulam requested to be lowered from his spiritual height so that he would be able to express in his writings whatever people need in order to fulfill the correction.

So when Moses asks the Creator to blot him out of the Book of Life, there is no resistance, no rebellion against the Creator, since it’s a person’s inner attribute. We shouldn’t imagine Moses as a person standing before the Creator. Everything that the Torah speaks about is inside us and we have to perceive it correctly and not imagine scenes from Hollywood movies. A person who feels the attribute of Moses internally cannot answer any other way since it obliges him. We always assume who we are and which attributes exist in us and manage us.

Any study that brings the Light, that brings us to unite, is fulfilled in order to disseminate and to bestow. Everything is in order to bestow. A person exists only for others, and only so that they will exist. Such absolute detachment is an indication of the attribute of Bina.
