Answer: The word “Creator” refers to the general upper force of nature, which is called the upper force since it is above everything in its power, volume, and size. It is the force of goodness, the force of giving and bestowal, which determines everything and includes all of the force of nature.
We can discover, understand, and attain this force. Therefore, it is called Creator, Bore, stemming from the Hebrew words “Bo – re” – “come and see.” We cannot understand what the Torah says unless we reveal it because it isn’t about faith.
We must learn how to read the Torah because it is written in a very accurate, concrete, but secret and allegorical language. Therefore, it isn’t a historical novel, but a code that can be deciphered only by studying the wisdom of Kabbalah. The Book of Zohar is the commentary on the Five Books of Moses (the Torah). We can begin to understand The Book of Zohar by studying the wisdom of Kabbalah and thus understand the Torah.
We don’t use the name God so as not to confuse the students by associations with what they previously imagined the upper force to be and the fact that there is seemingly a God in the image of man who sits up there looking at us, seeing everything and managing us. The upper force is within us, between us, filling the entire space. This is the field we speak of. It isn’t a corporeal field, but a spiritual one that is on a higher dimension, a field that contains everything and affects everything, a field of goodness.
