Everything Is Ready Come And Get It!

laitman_565_01Question: The Creator, the upper force of nature, treats people as parents treat their children, but parents give their children much more than their children want or understand. Why doesn’t the Creator do that?

Answer: He does! Look at what He gives you: He provides you with scientists who offer you Kabbalah books in your mother tongue.

Kabbalists have prepared all the necessary conditions in order to facilitate a person’s perception of the wisdom of Kabbalah. They answer all the questions and explain things in different ways. This is what the Creator does for you.

Why Does The Creator Punishes Us?

laitman_527_03Question from Facebook: If the Creator manages everything, why should a person be punished? After all, he has no freedom in his actions.

Answer: If the Creator manages everything, we apparently don’t have anything to do. He will think of everything and we could lie down as comfortably as possible and wait and see what happens later. But we were given egoism, which opposes the Creator. We need to change it so it will resemble Him.

That is our work. If we involve ourselves with that, we will get a good response from the Creator. And if not, then we receive punishment from Him, which forces us to. That is the entire management system.

The Creator leads us to understand where we are, what works, what influences us, and what is required of us. But we also, each one of us, must work together with Him as partners – He and I. So we must imagine we are facing the Creator and He is influencing us by stimulating our thoughts and movements.

Everything that we say, think, and feel comes from Him.

But He also requires a particular response from us. Even though He is also the one who summons the response, we must understand this and connect with it. The result will be that we will be in adhesion with Him. We must constantly live in adhesion with Him.

Then new states will be revealed in our lives and we will see how life becomes more calm, comfortable, balanced, and secure. The only thing we need is to come into direct contact with the Creator. This is something we can do.

You Create Me

laitman_231_04Question: You often say that the Creator doesn’t exist, and on the other hand, sometimes more often, you say that only the Creator exists, that “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35). How is it possible to understand this? Does the Creator exist or not?

Answer: The Creator doesn’t exist by itself.

The Creator is what a person creates from his altruistic desires, intentions, and actions. To the degree that he builds those desires, intentions, and actions with his friends, he reveals the Creator.

The amorphous Upper Light that is called “His essence” exists around us always. It is not tangible, it has no form, it is not “clothed” in anything, and it is impossible to attain it. But the Creator is something that a person absorbs through his “sensors,” through his spiritual characteristics, that he creates through an alliance with his friends.

So there is no divinity.  About the Creator, it is said, “You created me.”

There are 2% atheists and 98% believers in the world, but the divinity imagined by those believers doesn’t exist, rather it exists through what is attained with our corrected feelings, and this is called the “Creator” (Boreh) from the words, “Bo” (come) and “Reh” (see). To the degree that a person approaches the characteristics of the Creator and feels Him, to that degree he attains Him, and for him this will be the Creator. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches how to attain it.

The Four Languages And The Four-Letter Name Of The Creator

laitman_283_01Question: Do the four languages (Tanach, Halacha, Aggadah, Kabbalah) match the levels of the name HaVaYaH?

Answer: Certainly. The four-letter name of the Creator, “Yod-Hey-Vav-Hey” or HaVaYaH, absolutely includes within it all the elements of the world, both the spiritual world and our world.

So the four letters of the name of the Creator characterize the four levels of the evolution of matter under the influence of the Upper Light and correspond to the four main languages.

Who Created The Creator?

laitman_276_02Question: What made the Creator made and who created Him? Is there more than one Creator?

Answer: The Creator was made from a desire to bestow, to enjoy, to love, like a big, kind, warm mother.

Nobody created the Creator, He exists all the time, beyond time, movement, and space. And what was created by Him exists temporarily.

Each one of us can have his own Creator until we unite and realize that all of this is one single force. That is how the world exists.

We need to discover the Creator and come into direct contact with Him. And then you will see who it is and what it is.And the others will achieve direct contact with Him and discover who this is and what this is. And then in the connection between you, you will be able to clarify together whether it is the same Creator for all of you or not, and it will become clear to you that He is one.

Understanding The Creator

laitman_231_04Question: You say that the Creator has one attribute, “to bring pleasure to the created beings.” The created being’s mission is to develop an internal Masach (screen) and to cease to receive pleasure in order to change his egoistic nature from a desire to receive to a desire to bestow, and thus resemble the Creator.

Doesn’t this lead to a conflict with the Creator? After all, the Creator wants to bring pleasure and the created being refuses to receive it and thereby prevents the Creator from fulfilling His desire.

Answer: We can only speak about the relations between the Creator and the created being from the framework of our mind and our reason, while the true mutual relations between a person and the Creator are attained only above our reason. By acquiring the attribute of bestowal, we become equivalent to the Creator and so we can understand Him and our nature.

The Creator Is Above Our Feelings

Laitman_025_01Question: Do we bring the Creator contentment by entering a relationship with Him (begin to feel Him)?

Answer: Absolutely, and that’s the only way.

Question: Can we say that the Creator has a desire to delight His created beings? Does He suffer when we suffer since this desire is not fulfilled?

Answer: No, we use this terminology since we have no other way to speak about the Creator. It is said that the Torah uses the language of human beings. The Creator is above our natural feelings.

Why Doesn’t The Creator Hear Our Complaints?

laitman_239Question: Why doesn’t the Creator hear a person who cries and asks for His help?

Answer: The Creator doesn’t hear anything. The Creator is a system and it has no feelings toward us.

If we relate to the system properly, we receive what we need from it because our request is correct. But if we don’t relate to the system properly, we get a response that corrects our impact on the system.  We feel it as a negative response that operates in the opposite direction.

Therefore, there is no room for crying, begging, praying, etc. here since it is all empty and meaningless. A prayer is creating the right desire inside you into which the Upper Light, which is all around us, enters. It is only though our correct desire that we can discover it. At the same time, the Creator doesn’t change. He remains the same as He has always been, filling all of reality. Only when we have the right desire do we discover Him inside us.

Who Is Managing The World And Is There Any Evidence?

laitman_610_2Question: Does anyone manage the world?

Answer: The world is managed by one force called the Creator or nature. No one else can manage creation. However, the more a person resembles this force, the more he can contribute to making our world a better place, because he thus becomes a transmitter of the upper force into our world.

Question: Is there any evidence?

Answer: A person will have proof only when he attains the level on which he begins to feel that by his positive impact on our world, it really affects him, and this is proof he actually influences the world.

How Can We Make The Creator Happy?

laitman_938_02Question: How can we make the Creator happy if the Creator is a system? It is like trying to make the law of gravity happy.

Answer: Everything depends on our attitude to the Creator because we bring our feelings into this system.

When we work on a computer, we sometimes get angry at it, curse it, and even want to break it.  Why? This happens because we transfer our emotions to those objects that deal with the forces we are interacting with. It is the same with the Creator. The Creator is absolute! The absolute cannot be changed. He is not influenced by our requests and cannot interact with us because He is absolute!

Question: So how can we make the Creator happy?

Answer: We make Him happy in our sensations. Therefore, the Creator is called Bore (come and see). I come and see and discover Him inside me.

Question: Does this mean that we only feel that we make Him happy?

Answer: Yes. The Creator is something that applies to me, in our corrected feelings. We can say that something exists externally to us and still we have to work for the Creator because this is how we feel wholeness. When we attain Him, we begin to understand what is concealed in these words, what it means to bring the Creator contentment and whether this is possible. This is what awaits us in the future.

Question: If the Creator is the connection of everyone to everyone, how can this connection be happy?

Answer: When we connect with each other, a connection that is above us is created between us even though it is woven from our feelings, thoughts, intentions, and relationships between us. Because it isn’t in each of us, it is created between us, in the distance between us, in the connection between two people. This connection is not in a certain person or in me, but between us. The emptiness that is revealed in the mutual relations between us is what displays the Creator’s image to us.
