A Cloud That Fills A Person’s Soul

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: It says in the Torah that the Creator is revealed to a person in the cloud above the veil of the ark (above the Masach). Why is that?

Answer: When a person works with the world around him with the attribute of bestowal, he reveals the Creator, and the Creator approaches him in a cloud, in concealment, but He expresses the attributes of mutuality with a person. This is already a kind of contact.

The Creator appears on the veil that is between the two cherubs. This means that He appears above the Masach, between two attributes, on the middle line. Two cherubs symbolize the right and the left lines that are given from Above and the Creator commands: “Do!” which means that I have to make the third line by myself.

When I work between my first main attribute, which is receiving, and the attribute that I acquire, which is bestowal on all my egoistic desires, I create the conditions for the revelation of the Creator. The Creator sinks into me and fills me. He fills a person’s soul like a cloud that fills a valley, and His gradual revelation takes place inside me.

Moreover, the revelation is fulfilled inside a person and not on the outside. It seems to me that I see and feel something external to me, but I feel the Creator inside me!

I change and my new attributes and discernments give a feeling of a connection with the Creator. Revealing the Creator and uniting with Him, feeling Him inside me is the same action; it cannot take place outside me, but only inside me.

Therefore the wisdom of Kabbalah is called the inner Torah. As for the Torah, I should feel inside me a kind of filling, in knowledge, in attainment, a sense of infinity, eternity, and harmony.
