A Person Starts With A Spark

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why does the science of Kabbalah restrict its focus to just one single action: unity?

Answer: Kabbalah does not restrict itself. On the contrary, it has expanded to envelop the entire universe, the Upper Worlds and the lower ones in order to tell us that there is nothing besides unity.

It does not focus on select actions, but rather makes a synthesis of everything that exists. It brings us to the single principle that encompasses everything.

This science tells you: Don’t look at every problem separately whenever it occurs, as that would be a narrow-minded view. There is just one reason and explanation to all the problems: lack of unity. If you want to rise above the problem, then you should aspire to greater unity. If you are going in this direction, it means you are moving correctly.

Every science is based on one fundamental principle. In physics everything is attained through the basis of matter, through several elementary particles from which everything is made. In the past it made wonderful sense: you have an electron, a proton, and a neutron, meaning a plus, a minus, and a neutral particle between them, and that’s all.

But then they suddenly discovered that there are hundreds of elementary particles, and thus the entire theory was thrown into disarray. That’s because a scientist holds onto one principle, according to the truth that exists in nature. Science always aspires toward a unified picture.

A “simple interpretation” (Pshat) is the last, highest level of research and attainment. When we attain the World of Infinity, everything becomes very simple because the simple Upper Light fills the entire universe, the corrected desire. This is called realizing the single principle.

If, on the other hand, it seems like all our problems are unconnected, then this is what we have to correct by attracting the Upper Light that will unite everything.

In the meantime there is a great mess in our minds, hearts, and all of our actions. It’s unclear what is happening to me, this world, my family and friends, and my life and death. Every person would love to close his eyes so he won’t see this or think about it.

However, the path of Kabbalah is the opposite: to accept all of this as the revelation of the breaking and bring us to unity. That’s why the science of Kabbalah does not become revealed until a spiritual spark awakens in a person, a call for unity that the Creator gives us.

This spiritual gene has to start speaking in us, being a spark from the screen we once had. This is the beginning of a person’s birth.
