An Optical Illusion

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: If there are no separate parts, what does The Book of Zohar describe, the way one soul corrects itself?

Answer: The Book of Zohar tells us how we connect into one soul. After all, there is nothing else to talk about. There is a perfect state, one soul, and there is an imperfect state when the soul is shattered. We have to return ourselves to the perfect state.

Essentially, the shattering exists only in our consciousness. When we discover what is corrupt, we will see that everything is corrected. I only need to correct my perception, my vision. This is why this wisdom is called the “wisdom of Kabbalah” (“Kabbalah” means “reception” in Hebrew)—it is the wisdom about how to receive, to perceive reality. That’s all! Reality is perfect, and there was no shattering—it is all with regards to those who receive, a person who attains it.
From the 2nd part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 11/14/2011, The Zohar

  1. How do I know when I am perceiving reality or still in my illusions? And with that how do I hear truth not filtered through false perceptions? And how do I come out of the Body perceptions? I create it then see it, how do I stop that too?
