No Man’s Land

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We speak a lot about Lights and vessels but rarely examine the point of one’s own “I” that lies between them. What does it represent?

Answer: The “I” merely exists as my point of choice and no more than that. Everything else connects to it when it receives the desires of the others and fulfillment from the Creator. This point is like a pointer on a scale, the moment of choice, the section, the middle third of Tifferet. It doesn’t pertain to anything: neither reception nor bestowal.

The upper third of Tifferet pertains to the upper one, the qualities of the Creator, and the lower third pertains to the receiving desire, the creature. And there is literally nothing in the middle; it is a no man’s land.

Question: So what is there? After all, isn’t the choice realized according to certain criteria?

Answer: Once you get there, you will understand that this point is literally “hanging in the air.” You grow into a spiritual person out of this point; it is the initial point which exists in the middle, between the Light (existence from existence) and the desire (existence from absence). It is the miracle of creation.

We reach this point when we begin to connect to it all the desires and the Lights. Then as I act above these Lights and desires, I attain the point from which I act. It does not come from the Light or the vessel, but from the Creator’s essence.
