Who Can Hear The Torah?

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, “Exodus” (Ki Tissa), 34:4-34:7: So Moses carved two tablets of stone, like the first, and early in the morning he went up on Mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him, taking the two stone tablets with him. The Lord came down in the cloud; He stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. The Lord passed before him and proclaimed: “The Lord! the Lord! a God compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in kindness and faithfulness, extending kindness to the thousandth generation, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin; yet He does not remit all punishment, but visits the iniquity of parents upon children and children’s children, upon the third and fourth generations.”

“To the third and fourth generations” refers to the third and fourth levels when the Light already stems from a spiritual state and all the Reshimot (spiritual genes) stop. On the whole this is what Moses attains and expresses in his attainment. He clearly sees two lines: The right and the left, a blessing and a curse, that descend from the Creator and manage the ego pulling if forward in perfect accordance between them, forcing it to want to change.

Question: Do all the people hear what the Creator proclaims?

Answer: No. It is only the attribute of Moses; others cannot hear anything! The point isn’t where they are since the mountain only symbolizes distance. So under the hatred, which are the remaining attributes of a person, they don’t perceive the attribute of bestowal and it doesn’t exist for them.

Thanks to the first restriction that they have put themselves under, they can only watch what is happening from a distance. A mountain covered in smoke means that the ego itself is concealed from the people. They don’t even understand the ego that is before them and that they have to overcome. They don’t feel how Mt. Sinai becomes the Sinai desert they have to go through.

The mountain becomes a desert because the people cannot ascend to the level of Moses, and their egoistic desires seem to gradually open up before them now as they advance. To advance means that they correct every desire they have and eventually rise to Mt. Sinai, but this happens during forty years of wandering.

It turns out that only a person who is close to the attributes of Moses can hear the Torah that Moses wrote. In fact the Torah is totally concealed from everyone, so all the attempts and the efforts are only exercises that help them get closer to Moses, to decipher all the phases of his ascent and to follow him.

Then we will not just read, hear, and feel everything that is said in the Torah, but will actually fulfill it, which means that we will attain the state of love and bestowal. The Torah is not a secret, but a method that can be revealed to us only to the extent that we accept it in advance. Its fulfillment in our world is very simple if we begin to implement it accurately, without any abstruse projects.
