Be Your Own Creator

what-does-a-man-look-for-in-a-womanThere are two forces leading us to our goal. One force is our desires and the desires of the environment, which develop us in this world. But the second force does not pertain to this world; it pulls a person toward the unknown and brings him to a special, spiritual environment – a teacher, a group, and Kabbalah books.

If one connects with them properly, then he builds the spiritual world for himself, which is his future world. One’s body remains in the material world, while one’s soul becomes born in the spiritual world. This is the only realm where a person has freedom of choice.


A person is always inside the field of these two opposite forces, and he has to balance them out. However, he shouldn’t try to replace one with the other; one needs his life and the desire to enjoy in this world also.

On the spiritual path, one always finds oneself between two opposite forces. By balancing them within oneself, a person uses his free choice to build his “self” between these two forces. He does this freely and independently.

A person receives everything else from Above: his desires, mind, strength, and examples, but he builds himself on his own. It turns out that he creates a creature out of himself, becoming equivalent to the Creator!

Wake Up From The Dream

pointThe spiritual world is not in a different dimension or up in the clouds. It is something you find inside your attitude to other people, when you see that your neglect toward them becomes replaced by attentiveness toward them and a feeling that they are important. This happens because you wish to reach spirituality, and you start to see that they are your partners on this path.

You then begin to worry about them and to take care of them just as you would with anyone who is important to you. At first you do this egoistically, but you gradually start to feel that you want to give to them.

That is when the Light begins to work, making you feel that there are qualities inside you that you have to correct. You wish to treat others with love, and you also feel that only the Light can carry out this correction. If you really want this to happen, then the Light will come and correct you.

However, this Light works only inside the connection between people, turning hatred into love and correcting the breaking which once turned love into hatred. Inside this new attitude to others, you begin to reveal the spiritual world that was lost during the breaking. You realize that your connection with others is a connection of souls, of your inner desires, and inside it, you reveal the Creator.

All of this occurs precisely inside this net of desires that bind all of you. They create a vessel (Kli), in which your spiritual life becomes revealed. Meanwhile, the material life turns out to be but a dream, like an imagined world.

Deep inside the connection among people, you reveal the quality of bestowal, and you realize that it is the only thing that exists in the world. Everything else was a fantasy, a concealment of the spiritual world, which was necessary in order for you to reveal it.

Be Like A Child: Reach For The Impossible

pennyThe most important thing is to reach a complete desire at every moment. Be like a baby: even though he will want something else the next second, right now, at this moment, he absolutely has to receive the thing he wants. This is very important: to ask and to scream for just one specific thing, and always try to live with a complete desire, taking it to the end.

When it comes to spiritual progress, a complete desire is the guarantee for success! If our desire isn’t complete, then it isn’t perfect, and that means it doesn’t match spirituality, which is perfect and complete on every degree. Therefore, if a person desires spirituality, but is still willing to compromise or give in in some way, then he could stay stranded between the heavens and earth all his life. He will not receive help from Above.

If you are able to feel inspired for just a moment, then try to enter this feeling deeper and develop it “beyond the possible.” These efforts will create your prayer (MAN) for ascension.

Be like a child who always wants to grow bigger than he is today and who always tries to do what he could never do before! He is always doing something for the first time, always adding something new and thereby advancing.
