Discovering Oneself In Infinity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: In the article “Peace in the World,” Baal HaSulam writes that in reality, we bestow upon others without any benefit for ourselves. What does that mean?

Answer: We are all in Infinity, in a wonderful system. We all bestow upon each other, and all the souls are corrected and completely filled. The end of an action is in its initial thought. Nothing separates us, and we are all in adhesion with the Creator. He and His Name are one.

Yes, we are in Infinity, but to become aware of this state, to exist in, control, and understand it in all its depth, and through it to comprehend the force that established it, we must understand and become conscious of all its elements. This is why we find ourselves in a completely opposite state and begin to gradually develop. It’s like a baby who doesn’t know where he is, what is happening around him, and who takes care of him. But little by little he grows, until he becomes an adult.

So we now are in the world of Infinity, but do not sense it. And all of our work is to return to the real reality, to discover what already exists. This is what the revelation of the Creator to the created beings is.

I discover what already exists, and everything depends upon me. Therefore, Baal HaSulam writes that it isn’t more than psychologically work on ourselves. By way of inner changes we discover the real state in which we exist from the beginning.
