Nine Phases On The Way To Unity, Point 5

Dr. Michael LaitmanPreparation for the Integral Convention: Two Opposites (The Law of Equivalence of Form)

The basic fundamental law of reality is the law of equivalence of form. According to the law of equivalence of form, the created being was created as something from nothing from the reality of something from something.

These two poles—something from nothing and something from something—are totally opposite from one another in our reality. However, in the Creator’s plan that is above our reality, these poles connect into one. As a result, the law of equivalence of form obliges creation to pursue this unity until it can independently reveal the thought of creation in which everything is unified.

By attaining the raspberry ball and the greatest importance of the goal, we see that we still cannot attain the concept of unity. We lack the inner forces in order to constantly focus our thoughts and our efforts on bestowal, on the Creator.

We want to cross check these two concepts of bestowal and the Creator, which mean to imagine the Creator as the attribute of bestowal. But the attribute of bestowal can be revealed only when it’s dressed in the desire to receive. In other words, we discover the Creator only in the matter that He created and not in any other way.

When it’s revealed in a person, the attribute of bestowal aligns his actions and thoughts. This means that the Creator is “clothed” in a person, in a person’s attributes, and then he acts as the one who bestows. This form is called the Creator. Only when we see ourselves and the Creator that is dressed in us, can we reveal the Creator.

We actually see ourselves all the time. When we look at the world, we also see ourselves, although in the opposite form, but it is still ourselves. Thus, according to the revelation of the attribute of bestowal, we see how it is dressed in the whole world. We discover that the attribute of bestowal dominates the world and this form is called Shechina (Divinity).

Thus we understand why we have to force ourselves to worry about the external environment. We can ascend to the revelation of the Creator and reach unity with the Creator from the raspberry ball only to the extent that we discover this attribute in the whole world.

The world becomes our vessel; all of reality is my vessel, my soul; everything that is external to me is me. But I see it on the outside in order to discover the attribute of bestowal more clearly, 620 times greater, in order to intensify and to amplify the feeling of Nefesh of Nefesh in the world of Ein Sof (Infinity) above the power of the forces of impurity. This is how I begin to understand that the whole world was meant for me, for my work.

We have to recognize and understand that the forces of separation are necessary and we must understand them correctly. We have to enter a mode that we will accept the feelings of rejection as the left line against which the right line is evoked, the force of the group. We don’t see it as an obstacle, but as an opportunity to connect the right and the left lines and to create the middle line to advance even further towards depicting the Creator.
