Question: How can a person imagine the upper force, the Creator, if it is impossible to perceive Him through our human senses and compare Him to anything in the corporeal world? How is He revealed, and how do Kabbalists attain Him?
Answer: It is very simple. There is a force called the force of bestowal, and a person can feel it only if, on his part, he has a desire to bestow. Therefore, the attribute that we gradually acquire by studying the wisdom of Kabbalah called “Love your neighbor as yourself” is the attribute of bestowal, and it is fulfilled by our love of others.
If a person loves another, he yearns to give him everything. When a person feels that by himself, he immediately begins to feel in this emotion the upper attribute—the Creator, the upper world—and it depends on how intensive this emotion is on his part.
The upper field exists in potential and is revealed only when a network of the right mutual cooperation between us is created.
The incorporation with others, the connection with them, is the network through which the upper force is conveyed. Then, we feel that it exists.
