A Difficult Ascent

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, Exodus, 19: 3-5: And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying: ‘Thus, shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto Myself.

Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine…

Question: What does “And Moses went up unto God” mean?

Answer: Moses is the point in the heart. When I begin to feel that I ascend toward the attribute of bestowal, toward the attribute that separates me from the ego, and I don’t identify with it anymore, but rather place myself against it, then I rise a little bit above it, above the earth, to Mt. Sinai, to a mountain of hate.

I experience such mutual hate toward everyone that I am ready to enslave and subjugate everyone to me. However, I ascend above everything that the ego wants at any given moment of my existence and, depending on my ascent, get closer to the attribute of bestowal. The absolute attribute of bestowal and love is the Creator.

The Creator is not a materialized image, but rather what a person feels as an attribute. So, I leave everything that entices me to see the world in a different way, which means that I leave the people at the foot of the mountain and ascend to these new, qualitative attributes.
