Question: When we start reading The Book of Zohar, why do you often ask: “Do you have something to ask from the Creator?”
Answer: Certainly, otherwise for what reason do you have The Book of Zohar? After all, why do you open it? It is to discover the truth. The truth is revealed only if you awaken the right line, which is love. When you awaken it, you must understand, feel, and discover that in fact there is no love within you, but only hatred. And further, it is such a hatred that you are not able to sit next to your friends.
In order not to remain indifferent to each other, it is necessary to demand that the Creator reveal all of this to us: the love, hatred, mutual cooperation, and the conflicts between us. We lack the third factor, which is turning and demanding! The Creator is a force, a condition, and a system that demands constant turning towards it. As long as this doesn’t exist, you must do a lot of work. There is nothing that can be done about it, since it is impossible to skip over these levels.
