As If Standing Before A King

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe goal of creation is to delight the created beings by the revelation of the Creator to them. The revelation is according to the equivalence of form. The created beings have to attain the revelation of the Creator in their understanding, feeling, and their perception to the full depth of the upper system from an opposite state as the advantage of the Light from the darkness.

Thus, we have to start our work from the lowest most worthless isolated state that is so dark that we don’t even feel this darkness and our confusion. We simply live like animals that have fallen on a certain planet in space, crawling like cockroaches who are trying to manage as well as possible in the time span that was allocated for our existence.

But there are people who were given a special desire from above that calls them to ascend above this life and try to separate the daily life, that we are all part of, from the spiritual life, to divide our life into two parts. Then they determine that the basic necessities are enough for corporeal life and they want to devote everything else to the eternal spiritual life above the corporeal surface, to another level of existence.

With the help of special books, an environment, a teacher, and a group, we try to raise the importance of spiritual life and its advantage compared to the corporeal life. According to our nature and the environment that we live in, which forces us to be like everyone else, we will always be attracted to corporeal values since this is how the environment we live in influences us, whether we like it or not, since this attitude is in the air.

We, however, have to be under the influence of a special environment that will impress us and bring us to a state in which we will feel as if we are standing before a King whom we want to discover and resemble, and to force Him to be in contact with us, and us to be in contact with Him. This is all our work.
