The Game Of Life Was Designed For Us By The Creator

chess A question I received: Prior to the Machsom, how should we relate to this world, which is an imagined reality?

My Answer: Your attitude to this world should be very simple: While I am in this dream, I have to be a part of it. It is written, “A judge has no more than what his eyes can see.” I need to work, provide for my family and do everything necessary in this life, but at the same time, I should realize that it is a dream.  The world is a game and I perform all the right actions in it like in a game.

I must, however, treat this game seriously, since the Creator prepared this whole reality for me so that I could exist in it according to its laws and develop my “point in the heart,” my attitude towards the Creator.

These two levels, the corporeal and the spiritual, are completely unrelated to each other. On the corporeal level, where I am in a state of “sleep,” I carry out everything that is necessary for this life. Meanwhile on the spiritual level, I wish to find the connection with the Creator, and I develop while giving all my attention to this. Otherwise, what am I living for, if not to reach the Creator through my efforts in this life?
