Spreading Kabbalah: The Fuel For Correction

laitman_276.06From the time of the Ari and onward, the wisdom of Kabbalah was permitted to be spread among all the nations of the world. After all, the world entered the era of the Mashiach (Messiah), and therefore any spread of the knowledge of Kabbalah is to the benefit of correcting the world.

And before that, there was a prohibition on the spread of Kabbalah, as it accelerated the development of the world, which was detrimental to the people of Israel. It turned out that egoistic forces accelerate their development, outstripping the development of the forces of bestowal, that is, Israel. 1

The prophet Yeshayahu (Isaiah) said that the nations of the world will carry the sons of Israel on their shoulders to the Temple, that is, toward the end of correction, to complete adhesion between the Creator and creations. To ascend the mountain of the Creator is hard work, which is beyond the abilities of the people of Israel—light desires, desires for bestowal. Therefore, the spread of the wisdom of Kabbalah among the nations of the world is so necessary—it is the engine that will push the entire correction upward to the Mashiach. 2

Forming Qualities Like The Creator’s

laitman_259.01There is no Creator without creation. If there is no creation, then there is no concept of “Creator” at all—there is abstract upper Light in and of itself, called “Atzmuto” (His Essence). The Creator begins where there is already a certain desire in which, according to its properties, the upper Light can be revealed. Then the concept of the Creator and creation appears.

There is no creation without the Creator and there is no Creator without creation. That is, the upper force only has the form that a person prepares for it, as it is written, “You have made Me” and “My sons have defeated Me.” Our entire work is to prepare a special place for the revelation of the Creator, and it is realized in the ten. To the extent we can connect with each other, in the measure of our unity, we will attract the Light that reforms, which will improve our relations.

The Creator conveys Himself to the creations and helps them in everything so that they will discover Him more and more. The Creator reveals Himself in the ten to the extent we unite our forces and their level. This requires work to overcome, as well as the creation of special forms and qualities that correspond to the Creator.

The creation assumes the properties that the Creator possesses and tries to reproduce them, and the Creator shows the creation whether the creation’s assumptions were correct or not. This is how He teaches us the art of building the forms of creation similar to the Creator, that is, constructing a “human” (“Adam“).

There is no more exalted and interesting work than the disclosure of the Creator in the ten. It captures absolutely everyone, and it is impossible to remain indifferent. After all, we look forward to how we will build and discover the Creator, who will manifest Himself in the measure of our efforts and fill us. 1

The upper Light creates within a desire to enjoy all forms from the beginning to the end, and then disappears to enable us to repeat these actions, and thus study the whole process that we must go through in order to become like the Creator. Similar to a sculptor who creates a sculpture from a piece of marble, we sculpt the Creator from our desire so that it acquires the form of bestowal, and darkness shines like Light.

The forms themselves are not needed, but from them we learn who the Creator is, to whom we are going to become similar. In principle, this was the purpose of creation, and everything else was only the means to bring the creation to the Creator’s level.

Any action in one’s personal life and in the life of the group is meant only to reveal within us the wholeness of the Creator; everything is directed toward the end of correction and moves us toward one goal. And to what extent we will participate in it already depends on us. 2

To the extent that the creation succeeds in awakening the Creator, we feel ourselves as existing, understanding, and sensing. This is the whole meaning of creation. The living body differs from the dead one in that it attains something by itself. That is, everything must be preceded by one’s desire.

The general desire to enjoy is created by the Creator, and its filling, its satisfaction, is also in the Creator’s hands. But to connect the desire with the filling is our task.

Who is a human being? It is one who understands, is aware, prays, and applies efforts to connect the desire with the fulfillment. Why do I want to tie them together? In order to become similar to the upper one, my Creator. For this purpose, I have been given these two forces. On one hand, the desire, and on the other hand, the power of Light. In this work, the creation manifests its desire to resemble the Creator and thus proclaims that “There is none else beside Him.” 3

Entering The Spiritual World Is A Process

laitman_284.03The exodus from Egypt is only an exit, and not an entrance. Entrance into the spiritual world occurs as a result of the crossing of the Red Sea, accepting mutual guarantee, receiving the Torah, and the breaking of the golden calf. It is an entire process.

Freedom comes only after receiving the Torah, breaking the golden calf, and entering the desert, in other words, the beginning of the revelation of the levels of Bina. Bina is called “freedom.” The entire process, taking place in the Sinai Desert, symbolizes the achievement of freedom. We rise higher and higher above our desire to receive pleasure and by doing so, gain freedom from the angel of death.

Arrive Before Him

laitman_260Everything has its own time, but Israel accelerates time. So I want to get ahead of the Creator and arrive first at our meeting. That’s why I’m in such a hurry. Everything is already drawn up and set, but I do not break the rules of the Creator’s program—I only want to arrive before Him. It is specifically by our attempt to accelerate time that we show our aspiration and love.

Belonging To One System

laitman_267.02We are already beginning to feel that our world hit a dead end and is in crisis. The reason is that nature is pushing us toward greater unity and connection in one system, toward mutual interdependence of all people, societies, and governments.

In the last 50 to 60 years humanity has built a myriad of international systems, transcontinental corporations, which suddenly and quickly grew to encompass the entire world, rising above governments and borders in their activities and interests.

But at the same time, politicians and people are becoming ever more egoistic and incapable of cooperation, unwilling to see themselves as a single unit, a whole. The outcome is that the world descends into a very complex crisis, one that has never before existed.

On one hand, nature, through financial and manufacturing systems, locks us into a single system, into an integrated world. But we refuse to be integrated; each nation feels that it is unique, independent, and doesn’t want to rely on anyone else.

At this juncture erupts a tremendous crisis to which no solution is found. The world enters a global resistance. Baal HaSulam writes that there is no choice other than realizing that in everything, it is only human egoism that is to blame, but we are still obligated to achieve unity.

Egoism hinders us, but we need to rise above it, as the methodology of Kabbalah teaches us. If we use this methodology, then we will advance. Otherwise, we will involve ourselves in a very long path of suffering.

America feels this crisis much more powerfully than other countries. That’s why the goal of the upcoming Kabbalah convention in New Jersey, which will take place in May, is to enable us to actually feel ourselves not as separated by distant continents, but as belonging to one system which is above geography, history, and different languages, in other words, belonging to one body, one soul.
