How do I study the Creator’s actions? I repeat them like a baby, while looking at what the Creator is doing. The Upper Level descends to the lower level, which means that the Creator gives me an example to follow and shows me what to do, and I then repeat after Him.
Granted, I do it with His help, by virtue of His force, but I myself try to do the examples He sets before me. Just like we teach babies, that is how we acquire His mind.
The Creator shows me what I need to do, how to do it, and the order in which it has to be done. I receive absolutely everything from Above, because I myself do not know anything. I simply copy these actions and mechanically repeat them, because I do not have a mind yet.
This technique is called, “I attain You from Your actions.” I repeat all of His actions and acquire His Mind at the end.
