Bestowal And Receiving: A Conflict At All Levels

Dr. Michael LaitmanBaal HaSulam, “Exile and Redemption”: The Creator will evidently show us that Israel cannot exist in exile, and will find no rest as the rest of the nations that mingled among the nations and found rest, and assimilated in them, until no trace was left of them.

On the whole, the vessels of reception are divided into 70 parts called “the nations of the world.” During the shattering they have all become integrated and were also integrated with the desire to bestow.

But there is another problem here: On the one hand, the integration of the desires to receive doesn’t create a collision. Even if they are different, they don’t contradict one another by nature. On the contrary, they operate according to a collective plan of receiving, and they certainly understand one another. On the whole, the nations of this world also understand one another and feel that they belong to the human race.

But it isn’t so with the desires to bestow, with those in whom there are sparks of bestowal. What is more, they were also in the corrections during the time of the Temple. There are Reshimot (informational records) of bestowal left in them and so they belong to a totally different species. This is where the conflict is created: The desire to receive, by its very nature, hates the desire to bestow, which is opposite from it and which seems to force it to bestow. The desire to bestow, on its part, doesn’t feel hatred towards the desire to receive, since it was sent by the Creator to take care of the desire to receive and to help it and not to be hostile to it.

So on the part of the Jewish people there is no hatred towards the nations of the world, but there is some weakness. The nations of the world, however, hate the Jews, because the desire to receive wants to catch the desire to bestow and to enslave it under its dominance. That’s the way things are, when “something from nothing” encounters ” something from something.” The events in our world stem from the upper nature.
