Questions about the post Kabbalists On The Purpose of Creation, Part 12
A question I received: Quote: “Their completion [attained by themselves] would be their [merited] reward, resulting from their efforts to attain Him. And all that [evil created by the Creator and the opportunity to turn it into good] only serving His desire to do complete goodness [to the creatures].” Suppose we try to visualize the relationship between us (created beings) and the Creator. What does it most resemble: the relationship between a son and a father, parents and children, a husband and a wife, friends, or is it a completely different relationship? Is it even worth imagining at all?
My Answer: We can’t help imagining our relationship with the Creator because we are studying the wisdom of Kabbalah that reveals the Creator to us. But until we start perceiving Him directly, like everything in this world, we should visualize him as a kind but strict Father.
