Reaching The Land Of Israel

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, “Exodus,” 34:12: Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest they be for a snare in the midst of thee.

A person has attributes that he cannot correct. We have to leave them, which means to clarify things and understand that we cannot manage with them, overcome them, or change them to love and bestowal.

After all, we don’t even have the power to rise above them. So we need to expel them, as if to destroy them, not to use them but not used in the sense that they really as if don’t exist.

All these attributes are on the lowest egoistic level called “the land of Israel,” and are revealed in us when we ascend to a higher level. Only then can we define and identify them. So we mustn’t cooperate in any way with what is called the seven nations (the attributes of HGT NHYM, the seven Sefirot) and determine that it’s forbidden to ever touch them.

In contrast to the coarsest attributes, which cannot be corrected, there is an immense Light, the Light of the world of Ein Sof (Infinity). It is for this reason that we have to disregard them and to let the Creator correct them, since these attributes belong to our creation.

When a desire is created from nothing, all the seven attributes are in the dry zone of “something from nothing,” in this point of connection. Therefore they are revealed at the last moment, when we already ascend all the levels that we can correct. The Torah ends with the entrance to the land of Israel, and a person still has to deal with all these attributes. How should he operate from here on? It doesn’t say. The Torah is only given to us as a guide for correcting what we can correct.

Question: But then there is the story about David, about Jerusalem, about the land of Israel, etc.

Answer: This is not the level of Moses anymore, but the level of the prophets, and so it is even more concealed. We should understand that everything that is described by the prophets in the Holy writings are levels that we have already been through in the past in our uncorrected desires. We will not have to undergo them in the future because the phases of the destruction of the two Temples and of the exile are over. We only have to undergo the phase that the Torah itself tells us and that is enough. Then we reach the land of Israel and the end of correction. The Torah tells us about what happened in our roots, and so we have to correct the state of transition from Mt. Sinai in the Sinai desert until we reach the land of Israel.
