Question: What does the Creator want from me when He “plays” with me?
Answer: The Creator doesn’t want anything. He is good and does good. Based on the plan of creation, to benefit the creature, He performed only one action: created the desire to receive. Moreover, it was created as perfect from the start. As the “Introduction to The Book of Zohar” describes, the initial and final states are in unified perfection.
However, in order to know where we are, how and why He initially created us, we gradually return to consciousness and dissolve the state we are in. After all, everything takes place relative to us, in our perception. Nothing changes except my understanding and awareness.
Therefore, the Creator doesn’t want anything from us; He simply gave us an opportunity to consciously know the state in which we were created as perfect, eternal, and similar to Him. That is what we are supposed to accomplish, having undergone several stages. First, we develop unconsciously, on the still, vegetative, and animate level of desires. And at the last stage, the speaking one, we arrive at consciousness and attain our authentic state. We are living in the time when this transition is being made.
Previously, there were people who attained spirituality as well, but only a few individuals. As for today, this process involves all souls which start to sense and realize where they really are.
