The Torah, “Leviticus,” 1:3-1:4: If his sacrifice is a burnt-offering from cattle, an unblemished male he shall bring it. He shall bring it willingly to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting before the Lord…and it will be accepted…
“Be accepted” refers to the decision a person comes to by examining which of his desires is perfectly ready to work with in order to bestow upon others without any self-benefit. A person has to examine all his desires, no matter what level they are on, rate them, and determine on what level he can bring an offering and on what level he cannot.
This is very precise work, during which we attain our inner nature with regard to the Creator and see that we can resemble Him to some extent but only on a certain level, and everything else in us is the animal that we have to sacrifice.
Thus, we determine our level, and by working with the anti-egoistic Masachim (screens), we build the spiritual ladder inside us. By that we learn the whole scheme and work actively on resembling and becoming like the Creator. To the extent that we can resemble the Creator, we can seemingly replace Him, so that man is left and there is no Creator
Question: I am always scared when you say “man is left and there is no Creator,” because we always mean that He exists and that the world is advancing towards Him.
Answer: No. We speak only about what we attain. If we don’t feel Him now, does He exist or not?
The main problem is that there are certain axioms, starting points, that have been inserted into us from birth, which we simply have to burn inside us. One of them is the existence of the Creator because this declaration implies that we already have some contact with Him and don’t need to build, to determine, and to sculpt this essence!
There is no Creator without man and there is no man without the Creator! This is why the Creator is called Bo-re (come and see). If we don’t come and don’t see, He doesn’t exist.
