The Contact Point With The Creator

laitman_740_02The Torah, “Numbers” 9:6 – 9:8: But there were certain men, who were unclean by the dead body of a man, so that they could not keep the passover on that day; and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day.

And those men said unto him: “We are unclean by the dead body of a man; wherefore are we to be kept back, so as not to bring the offering of the Lord in its appointed season among the children of Israel?” And Moses said unto them: “Stay ye that I may hear what the Lord will command concerning you.”

Who were unclean by the dead body of a man, means connecting in their internal work to their dead desires that are aimed at self-contentment and not to the intention of in order to bestow unto others.

A person who suddenly sinks into these desires cannot be purified of them and corrected. In that case not only does he not enter the land of Israel, but he cannot advance in his spiritual ascent either.

And Moses said unto them: “stay ye that I may hear what the Lord will command concerning you.” Moses doesn’t decide anything on his own because it is merely a point in us that yearns for the Creator. When it receives a desire from below, it has to find the contact with the Creator. This is what Moses’ function and actions come down to.

He is loyal both to the people and to the Creator because he is the point of contact between them, which means between all the uncorrected attributes and the upper property of love and bestowal.

He has no self, and is therefore called the Lord’s slave, as it says: “There has not been a prophet as great as Moses.” In other words, it is absolute bestowal in both directions.

  1. Why rabash had to stay religious until the end of his life?

  2. What I learned last they have to learn first and they have to be able to process it better than I ever did or this thing isn’t worth a thing and it turns out to be painful and uncessary when compared with the costs. Why dont they make it that way for everyone already?!

  3. What if we are unclean by connection with others who are aimed at self-contentment and not focused on bestowal? What if these desires don’t come out of ourselves, but through our incorporation in others who may have some small desire for the Creator, but not sufficient strength to be in bestowal? If the Creator has commanded us to unite as one man with one heart, and part of our body is made of these dead desires, how can the whole man be purified? How can we cut off our body so that the head alone can enter the land of Israel? How we can be both devoted to the people who are impure and to the Creator who demands purity? Don’t we have to stay with the people, even though it means that we will not attain ourselves; isn’t that what it means to have no self and to be the Creator’s slave? How can there be bestowal in both directions since the two are completely opposite? Aren’t we obliged to die with our brothers in the exile, rather than to just try to enter the land ourselves? If it says, “stay ye that I may hear what the Lord will command concerning you,” it sounds like we should not send the impure away because of the words “stay ye”, but how can we “hear what the Lord will command?” Moses did not enter the Land, but remained outside. Maybe I’m just confused and these are dumb questions, I don’t know.
