What Will Sprout Out Of Us?

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom the initial state where all the souls were together (Σ), we transitioned to the world of the breaking, and then fell into our world. Then, after the development of egoism and the mutual inclusion of all of its parts, we reached a turning point (1995), when we need to start correcting our ego to return to the initial state.

However, if the first state was created by the Light, the Creator, we create the final state ourselves. There is a big difference here: We become similar to the Light, the Creator. This is the purpose of creation.

We are born without any self-awareness, like a drop of semen in the womb that has not become anything yet. Then we go through a preparation period, acquire the power of good (+) and evil (–), and thanks to these forces can develop on the spiritual path.

Everyone is conducting his own inner war, and together we conduct wars in society, humanity, until we reveal the truth by advancing in the middle line. At the same time, both the plus and the minus make up one whole in us. The minus is the forces of our egoism, and the plus is the forces of Light within us. This way we advance.

We must conduct this difficult work consciously and sensibly. Essentially, this is what we have to do. After all, we must return to the initial state, reveal it deep within us. To do this, we become wiser, more sensitive, and more evolved.

Starting with the current state, we begin to sink deep within us: the worlds of Assiya, Yetzira, Beria, Atzilut, and Adam Kadmon, and at the end we attain the world of Infinity (∞). Our main achievement is the realization of our own evil.

We attain everything in our ego. As we direct it towards bestowal, we keep sinking deeper and reveal the upper worlds in it, until all of it, the entire Malchut of the world of Infinity which we had in the initial state, transforms itself to have the intention to bestow. This way we go through the second state, which includes our entire path, and reach the third state.

As Baal HaSulam writes, the method of Kabbalah allows us to reveal the evil, egoism, within us. As we correct it, we sink deeper, and there we reveal all the worlds, the entire spiritual reality. After all, the Creator did not create anything except for the receiving desire. This desire took on an egoistic form though the breaking, and now we need to correct it into bestowal.

Today we feel like we exist in a miserable, dark, and limited reality. Being opposite to the Light, we can perceive only it. We are like a drop of semen that has no idea what will become of it.

However, as we evoke the Light to develop us and change our receiving desire to bestowal, we attain it, the Creator, according to the law of equivalence of form, until our desire and the Light become similar to one another.

  1. This is so true Rabbi Laitman. It is a daily goal to love others the same as self. To love our Creator more than others and the self. We have to ask for assistance from Heaven everyday. If we don’t we fail and disharmony, conflict and all the troubles in the world continue.
