Sole Purpose And Unique Means

Dr. Michael LaitmanIf we go out to the wide audience without concern for our inner connection, then why are we going out? We aren’t going to educate them, to campaign for a healthy lifestyle, or to moralize. There are many other organizations and associations that have many means, vast resources, talented leaders, and we cannot compete with them if we are not equipped from the start with the spiritual power of our unity. So we need to understand clearly with what we are moving forward, what our goal is, and what the means for attaining it are.

Our goal is the revelation of the Creator in the world, and the means for this is the Light that Reforms. This is our uniqueness;  we don’t have anything besides this and we also don’t need anything else! We must be very careful not to mix and add some other kind of tools here.

Therefore, the power with which we fight is mutual responsibility, which brings us to faith, that is, to bestowal. In this way we attain everything; the Creator will fight and not we ourselves. We only need to constantly adapt ourselves to open the way for Him. This is called the war of the Creator, serving the Creator.

We constantly need to remind ourselves,  always formatting ourselves anew to adapt ourselves a little more and a little more. The tunnel through which we are passing is becoming narrower and we need to adapt ourselves more and more precisely to its format, to its form, and to gradually advance in this way. Therefore, what was yesterday is already past, today more is required, and tomorrow even more will be required. We need to to adapt ourselves to the instructions of the sources and the teacher  in a more and more precise form, and to try not to forget and understand what the goal is.

Sometimes we forget about this and are confused. The Kelim are renewed all the time and again drop us back into this world. “Shattered Kelim” are discovered and bring us down again; we must consider all kinds of external factors that distract us from the goal. Therefore, the group must hold, support, strengthen, and demand of each one.

If the condition of mutual responsibility acts among us where each one is concerned for the others, is responsible for them so they will not lack anything and will have everything necessary, then a group like this is called Israel (Yashar-El). And then it deserves to receive the Torah.

To the degree that we keep the guarantee in the face of all the disturbances and all kinds of results of the shattering that are discovered at every moment and every time strengthen the guarantee and renew it, then to this degree the Light that Reforms illuminates us. And by means of it, we transform into a “kingdom of priests and a holy nation.”

And we must explain all of this to people. Maimonides once wrote that to women and children it is necessary to reveal this secret gradually, in other words, not to give all the explanations at once. But Baal HaSulam wrote in the article, “The Arvut (Mutual Guarantee)” that the time has arrived to reveal the true meaning of serving the Creator to people. For we are already found in this kind of crisis and despair, people already feel they have exhausted their own powers and that they lack the means to change anything in the world. Therefore, we must tell them about working with mutual bestowal in its cleanest form. Only if we reach a state like this will everything be okay.

It’s not even necessary to conceal this; this must transform into our “credo,” into our foundation. We suppose that the world must reach this form and that’s it! These are our views and our knowledge that the wisdom of Kabbalah speaks about. If we begin to pretend, then with this we distort and destroy all of our work. For to the degree that we outwardly tell a lie, we need first to be clothed in it internally. And this is not worthwhile to do.
