A Reshimo (informational gene) is a picture, a form, which determines the future state, yet it comes from the past. Suppose yesterday I was in a restaurant and paid 100 dollars for a dinner; I ordered five dishes, a full HNRHY. But today I only have 50 dollars instead of 100, so the waiter says that I can order five dishes again, but they will be different this time: a cutlet instead of a steak, a herring instead of a salmon, and so on. Yet, I can still have a five course dinner.
I demand according to what I received before since this is the only taste I’m familiar with. But my screen (covering) corresponds to only what I can receive now. I make a calculation relative to what happened. Obviously, in the end I receive something different from what I had before, but it does not matter to me!
How can I demand the Light that isn’t in me yet and for which I still don’t have any data? How do I perform a calculation for a new state? After all, it is a new degree, an enormous, unmatched difference?
But I perform a calculation for the greatest possible bestowal to the Creator, and hence, what I receive today is not important to me. Even if it’s a steamed cutlet instead of the roasted lamb I had yesterday, that’s the most I’m capable of and I’m happy to have been able to perform this highest possible calculation for the Creator’s sake. Therefore, I accept what is being revealed to me as the most desired fulfillment.
Indeed, what matters is my intention to bestow, and not what I will receive, what piece of meat on a plate. Anything He will give me will be the most I’m capable of and hence, it will be perfect.
Therefore, we are able to perform an exact calculation of the states that haven’t been revealed in us yet. We perform a calculation not on the quality of the received Light, but on the quality of our bestowal.
