What Can We Give The Creator?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How can I bestow unto the Creator if I have nothing to give Him?

Answer: What does a baby have to give to the mother? But look how much joy it brings her, what contentment he gives her. If we imagine that the Creator treats us with infinite, absolute and perfect love, what can we give Him? At least some response, a small smile. If He loves us, no matter what steps we make towards Him, it will be a pleasure for Him. The only question is what does it mean “towards Him.”

There is only one goal: to please the Creator. This is only possible by bestowal, by becoming like Him.

What does the mother want from the baby? She wants to feel the reaction from him as from a little person: a smile, a move towards her. This is a pleasure for her. The mother wants to see the manifestation of human qualities in the baby, signs of progress. And we need to learn from this example. This is what the Creator wants us to do, and thus we can bring Him pleasure.

  1. Beautiful.

  2. When I lloked into my baby’s face, I saw how much it looked like my beloved, it’s father. Then how much it looked like me. Then how wonderful it truly was that God gave us the precious gift of this new person who is the picture and form of our love, even if it was all a figment of my imagination. God called, and our thoughts; God’s and mine/his aligned and we created another like ourselves. We were more like God than we ever dreamed before we looked into the eyes of our Creation and smiled with gratitude and pride. That was our bliss. Ours & God’s.
