What Is Creation?

Laitman_712_03Question: If there is none else besides Him, then is there a creation?

Answer: Creation appears only when it begins to reveal the Creator. It does not exist prior to that.
Thus, we cannot speak about creation without the Creator or about the Creator without the creation.

In other words, if the desire created by the Creator obtains the property in which it can attain the Creator, then it is called creation. Yet, the part that is still unable to accept the property of the Creator, which means revealing Him within itself, exists in the embryonic state and it is not a creation.

Therefore all people in our world and everything we feel now is a virtual creation, the existence of matter in the state anticipating the spiritual. Creation is called the created desire that has obtained freedom of choice and implemented it in similarity to the Creator.

Touching Hearts

laitman_943Question: What do we lack in order to form the correct prayer?

Answer: Our hearts still do not feel that they can touch one another. They are enclosed in the egoistic layer called our body.

In this case, our body is not the physical flesh but rather egoism, which does not allow us to touch hearts. As a result we cannot form a prayer.

No Desire, No Prayer

laitman_600_04Question: Is it possible to raise a prayer and attract the Light if I do not feel any desperation or suffering?

Answer: How is it possible to pray if you do not feel any suffering? How can you ask if you do not have any need? A prayer is a revelation of desire. If I have no desire, then there is no prayer either.

Question: I can pray only from my own desire (Hissaron). How can I pray from my ten?

Answer: There is no way. Of course, you can mumble something, but it does not influence anything. If you do not exist in a ten, you cannot nullify yourself. You cannot make yourself similar to the Creator in any way.

You cannot pray from a ten without a common desire. Only together with friends when you unite into a one whole can you form a common intention, which is called a prayer.

Don’t Believe Me, Find Out Yourself

Laitman_155Question: Why should we believe you?

Answer: You shouldn’t believe me since you cannot actually perceive me and whether what I say is true or not. If a person understands the wisdom of Kabbalah he knows what I am talking about and if he doesn’t understand, how can he express his disagreement from the perspective of not understanding?

The wisdom of Kabbalah is not a system of information that a person is served and taught, but a guiding system and a set of instructions that lead a person to the revelation of the upper world. Then he can study and understand independently and this is the reason that I cannot tell you about it.

A person does not have the right tools or vessels which means the compatible senses and attributes to perceive the upper world because it is attained only when one resembles it and is equal to it. Even when a person reads Kabbalah books he doesn’t understand anything.

I can only explain the method of attaining the feeling of the upper world and how we can advance towards it, how to enter it by the connection between the friends, by drawing the Surrounding Light unto us, etc. A person will begin to feel and to attain this when he becomes a Kabbalist.

Question: Can we call it the hidden part of the Torah? Is what Kabbalah books describe the revealed part and what is attained the hidden part?

Answer: On the contrary, the hidden part is the part which the books describe, the levels, the ascents, the revelations, etc. Because when a person reads he doesn’t understand what he reads, but when he attains and feels the upper world, it is revealed to him, while it remains concealed for everyone else.

Giving A Person A Portion Of Light

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: As a Kabbalist, do you give a person information according to his capacity to understand? How can you do that and is this something only a Kabbalist knows?

Answer: I try to descend to the level of that person, but at the same time, I also know that there are things that he will hear but will not understand.

There may also be unpleasant responses to my explanation and a person may even understand the exact opposite of what I said. Still I have no other choice. I still have to insert a small portion of Light into a person. Then it depends on how the Light operates.
