A Blessing Or A Curse?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why is it so important not to condemn the Creator, but to constantly justify Him?

Answer: If it hurts you that you curse the Creator and you wish to correct the situation, it isn’t because you are afraid to speak evil of Him, since everyone justifies Him in words, everyone.

The difference between those who have revealed the Creator and those who haven’t is that if a person hasn’t revealed the Creator, it means that he curses Him. If a person has revealed the Creator, it means that he blesses Him.

This is the way it is revealed in the vessels, in a person’s feeling, according to equivalence of form. If I understand the Creator, feel Him, thank Him, and bless Him, feeling that I am like Him, it is to this extent that I reveal Him. Once I reveal the Creator, I bless Him.

But if I am in a state of concealment, it means that I curse the Creator. There are different levels of concealment just as there are different levels of revelation. There are levels of deep concealment in which I am like a baby who is forgiven, no matter what he does at the moment, as long as he grows and is healthy. He can make a mess and break things, but he is still forgiven since he is a baby! This is the form of concealment.

There can also be a form of concealment in which I begin to realize that I should behave properly, but in the meantime I cannot. Thus I keep on developing. The concealment or revelation of the Creator, however, are always a sign of what I say about Him, whether I bless or curse Him.
