What Does It Mean To Be The Creator?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: You are saying that in the end every person must reveal the formula of balance with nature.

Does Kabbalah really want to turn every person into a research scientist, forcing each one to discover nature’s formulas?

Answer: But it is a very simple formula! Each of us is inside nature and strives towards comfort.

Balance is the solution to the equation, the discovery of the formula of ones most comfortable state, the kind of things I need like heat, humidity, food, shelter, family and children, a secure workplace and salary, etc. In our world this is what it is to attain balance with nature and satisfy all the desires.

But nature develops me so I this equilibrium would be constantly disturbed, and I need to keep trying to find it over and over as I advance.

We constantly look for balance. Even when people strive for power or pursue millions of dollars, they do this because they feel this need and they want to fulfill it, bring it to balance in order to calm down.

For this reason, the development that Kabbalah speaks about is the most normal and natural development for any person in this world. The only thing is that every person has a slightly individual formula for attaining this balance. Balance means that I feel so good that there is no way to feel any better!

When all the desires are corrected, in other words, when they are completely filled with whatever it is they want to be filled with, this is called the end of correction (Gmar Tikkun)!

I do not need to look for some far-fetched formula of nature! When I attain an absolutely comfortable state where I would not want to change absolutely anything, it means that I have discovered the common formula of balance with nature!

In other words, I reveal that I can be big and successful, and this form, where I now reveal myself, is called “the Creator” or nature. It is as if I were growing and growing and I finally grew up and became a king, and I see: Here is my castle, here is my army, and here are the people.

When a person feels that he has attained complete fulfillment, it means that he has discovered the formula of what it means to be the Creator.
