Question: In order to feel the Creator, I need something external, the connection between us, and not my “self.” If this is so, then why did He create me as such?
Answer: He did it so that from this form, exactly as you are with all your predetermined qualities, you would start analyzing, examining, studying, and learning who the Creator is independent from Him. Right now you exist outside the system of the spiritual world. Hence, like an independent researcher, you can embark on finding the Creator.
For this purpose, we exist in our world, completely cut off from the spiritual system, even its impure part. My job here is to conduct an independent investigation (analysis). From any spiritual level, I always can return to this form, in my body, in order to ascend again and continue my exploration of the spiritual path.
This world is important since in it I seem to be independent. I exist at the animate level and, thus, I do not see the Creator and am cut off from the spiritual phenomena. When I desire to become human, I enter the spiritual system, and if I don’t, I return to the animate state once again.
Thus, I have an opportunity to exist on two levels: animate and human. Hence, the Psalms say: “Lord preserves both man and beast.”
