A Curtain That Is Always Lowered

Dr. Michael LaitmanWe exist only in one state, the World of Infinity, but it is hidden from us behind 125 curtains. Beneath 125 concealments corrupted by the descent along 125 degrees, I exist in the opposite nature. But it doesn’t impact my environment in any way. Even if I do not see, feel, or act correctly, I still am present in the spiritual world and have to familiarize myself with its laws. Otherwise I will always lose.

However, since I am distanced from the World of Infinity, the spiritual system treats me accordingly. By lowering me down, the system applies the criteria that “match” me. Of course, I am opposite to bestowal, but only by 1/125th. If I were present in the World of Infinity while being totally opposite to it, I wouldn’t be able to tolerate it.

Thus, I constantly bear damages in accordance with my current state and my next degree; I feel a discrepancy (a gap) between these two states which is, in fact, a force that moves me forward. Even now the power of evil in me draws me down, and I sense alienation from spirituality. I feel bad about this world and about the fact that I haven’t climbed my spiritual first step yet.

A Curtain
The system of Infinity is condensed in relation to us; it reduces itself and creates concealments, meaning spiritual worlds. Due to this fact, a person, just like a child, always faces the necessity to grow. Each time he reveals separation from a higher level so that he can again apply effort and climb another degree.
