Justifying The Creator’s Assistance

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Right now our entire world group is participating in a unique experiment: focus group workshops. How should this preparation be tied with the convention? What should we carry out after the convention for the remaining 99% of humanity?

Answer: The fact of the matter is that we received a special desire: the aspiration to the Creator, to this general governing and all-fulfilling force, besides which nothing else exists. We are inside this force, inside this field. You could say that each of us received a special disposition, assistance.

But who are we, really? After all, none of us is anything special relative to the Creator?!

We need to understand that we are able to develop only when we’ll be developing everyone else and pulling all of nature along with us. Therefore, without the 99%, without having to pull all of humanity after us, we wouldn’t have received this desire, the aspiration to the Creator.

Essentially, it goes like this: The Creator is pulling us to Himself as if by a string. Initially, He kept pulling us until we understood the concept. From then on, He will pull us only as much as we will be pulling the rest of humanity after us. Humanity is still just on the level of animate existence, and it doesn’t need to aspire to the Creator, to unification with the common field, to the ascent to the level of “man,” on its own. Man is someone who understands and attains the Creator.

If we’re going to disseminate our knowledge in such a way that it will be perceived correctly by the masses, we will become worthy of Him pulling us further. He will do so to the extent and with the force with which we unite with the rest of humanity. We neither advance nor strive forward by ourselves. We only need to show people that we are taking them along and that together with them, we desire, simply desire to aspire forward! This is what we call “raising MAN,” when we take their desires and passing them through ourselves, raise them further. And then the Light descends from Above and draws all of us to itself.

The 99% do not have a desire for spirituality. Their desires are restricted to the material level.

We awaken in them an understanding that they will solve all of their problems only by pursuing integral relations with each other, through unification. While doing so, we don’t mention the Creator or the upper attainment since they don’t aspire to that.

Their aspirations are directed at making this world safe and comfortable for life, at making it free of all problems. Especially threatening is the problem in ecology. We know very little about it, yet one can see with the naked eye what’s happening already. In the upcoming years, these problems will be truly threatening. And then it will be even easier for us to work with the masses.

But we shouldn’t just wait until these misfortunes threaten our existence so it will be easier to convince the public. We need to explain to them that all these problems are resolved through integration between ourselves.
