All Pieces Of The Puzzle

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the beginning of the spiritual journey, in accordance with one’s effort, a person gradually discerns what he needs to reach the goal. Everything changes: me, my perception of the goal, ideas about the means of reaching it, my individual capacities, and my vision of the Creator’s image.

With every change I see things differently: for what, whom, and why ask? Why did He set me up to start asking? What does He lack, what do I achieve with my request? In the end, all these questions and answers (desires and fulfillments) must form the correct desire (Kli) for revealing the Creator and becoming similar to Him.

Here, nothing can be left until “later”; a person has to complete every stroke and draw it into the general picture. Otherwise, the Kli will remain incomplete since even the tiniest flaw makes the spiritual need imperfect, and that is why the Light (Creator’s presence) will not be able to manifest in the desire (spiritual vessel, Kli).
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 10/4/10, “What is the Help that One Should Ask of the Creator”

  1. Dear Rav Lightman

    As the texts logically avoid all reference to suppositions concerning the unknown constitution and essence of the Creator, how can we be certain that “becoming similar to Him” is totally encompassed by the notion of receiving in order to bestow?

    Thanking you in advance,
    Kind Regards
