Concealment For The Sake Of Revelation

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: The world is so great, and there are so few of us. At first glance, we stand no chance of reaching it. But on the other hand, it is written that salvation comes from the Creator in a blink of an eye…

Answer: We do not sit around relying on the Creator. A person must go by what he sees. The “Creator” (Boreh) is a quality that is revealed in us according to how prepared our vessels, our desires, are. I build Him for myself according to the principle of “come and see” (Bo-Reh).

There is no foundation inside me, and I can only rely on the forces I awaken in myself, in my environment. If I fail to awaken them in the right form at the right time, then they become revealed in a negative form. But one way or another, everything is inside us. There is nothing on the outside.

When we keep order and follow the schedule in our development, we reveal the Creator. But when we fall behind, when we are late, this delay conceals Him from us, in other words, it conceals the corrected system from us where the mutual forces of bestowal manifest. This is the spiritual world. There simply is no other Creator. In the worst-case scenario, you create an idol for yourself, an “external” image.

As for our possibilities, some are strong in their quantity and others in their quality. And this is why we do not fear the fact that there are few of us. The main thing is to bring the message to the people so that they will hear it. And this is why you have Internet that erases boundaries.

This world wide Web has appeared because it appeared for us. If we use it the right way, then we will reach everyone, and people will accept our message. After all, in reality these are small, helpless desires, like children, and we must care for them.

Question: So what should correct dissemination be like?

Answer: We must always be analyzing this. Rabbi Abba revealed in secret, and we, on the contrary, must conceal ourselves in revelation. Instead of revelation in concealment, concealment for the sake of revelation, we must learn to treat people this way…
