Life Was Given In Order To Attain The Creator

Dr. Michael LaitmanWe should see every moment of our existence as an opportunity for fulfilling our life, our existence, what this life and this reality were given to us for. Reality is arranged so that we, the created beings, will be able to attain our Creator. We have to become acquainted with Him from a state that is totally opposite from Him so that our attainment of Him will be as complete as He wants it to be.

This means that if the Creator wants us to attain Him to a certain extent that includes many sub-levels and individual revelations, then we have to be in a state of concealment in each of these sub levels. Since the concealment can be attained only by the opposite state, from being in a state of revelation, the descent into exile and the pulling away from the Creator is also gradual. The more we descend down the levels of concealment, the more we can attain the revelation from one level to the next.

If we were to imagine all of reality correctly, then there is nothing else to do but reveal the Creator! So in every action, in every state, in all our work, in the study, discussion, connection, and dissemination activities, all we lack is only this intention. The only thing we lack in every action is the desire for one outcome, to discover the Creator, the force of bestowal and love, and then we will be worthy of Him.

We prove our readiness by our efforts and the exercises that we perform between us. The only thing missing in all our work is the right intention before every action that we perform at any given moment. First we have to focus ourselves on the Creator, on His revelation. If we focus ourselves on Him, we can already understand how to establish the connection between these two points, between ourselves and the Creator.

The connection should be established from Him and not from us, from the force of bestowal and love. We should find out how to establish the systems that are adaptable for the revelation of the force of love and bestowal and what my inner vessel should look like so that it can reveal this attribute. In order to tune it, I begin to connect to others, connect the whole global soul to me: the still, vegetative, animate, and the human beings that are connected by me. Thus I create a place where the Creator and I can be together, where we have a chance of being revealed to one another.
