A Real Picture Of The World

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, “Exodus” (Pekudei), 38:22: Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, had made all that the LORD commanded Moses.

Bezalel means “in the shadow of the Creator” which means the Masach (screen) that the ego builds in resembling the Light according to the materials in us. They are all upgraded according to the level of Aviut (thickness).

The Torah, “Exodus” (Pekudei), 38:24: All the gold that had been used for the work in all the work of the Holy the gold of the weaving was twenty nine talents, seven hundred and thirty shekels, according to the holy shekel.

Shekels are not coins but a measurement of gold since everything was measured by its weight in ancient times.

Here we have a full account of the gold and silver and other materials that were used in the holy work.

There are materials that belong to the level of the still, like clay, gravel, etc.; materials from the vegetative world, such as wool and different plants, and materials from the animal world like hides and cotton used to make cloth etc. They all symbolize desires from the still, vegetative, and animate levels of nature.

In spiritual work, we raise these desires to the uppermost level called Adam (a human being) and create the Tabernacle, the vessel for the revelation of the Creator.

All the desires are inside a person, and the person is the vessel for the whole world. It is because the world is inside me and not on the outside, although I feel that it is corporeal, material, real, and that it exists outside of me.

When I feel these dualities, I can calibrate myself to return as often as possible to the right picture of the world. This helps me re-examine my attitude to those around me, to the ecological environment and to all of humanity.

All the wars in the world are actually inside me. They occur before my eyes since I am like a projector that projects before me everything that happens inside me: battles, problems, explosions, space, etc.

This feeling is gradually revealed inside me under the influence of the Light, and I begin to feel that all the troubles and the problems in the world are a projection of my uncorrected attributes. First, I have to correct myself, and by that I correct the whole world. This is the correct perception of reality.

Unfortunately, we want the opposite: to correct everything around us so that we will feel good internally. But this happens according to the thought of creation in order to focus on the right attitude, the correct perception of the world.
