Torah, Deuteronomy 4:15 – 4:19: And you shall watch yourselves very well, for you did not see any image on the day that the Lord spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire. Lest you become corrupt and make for yourselves a graven image, the representation of any form, the likeness of male or female, the likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the heaven, the likeness of anything that crawls on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters, beneath the earth. And lest you lift up your eyes to heaven, and see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, which the Lord your God assigned to all peoples under the entire heaven, and be drawn away to prostrate yourselves before them and worship them.
Question: How can we not see the images and statues that surround us?
Answer: There is no Creator and no upper world. We ourselves need to create them within us. This is very difficult to understand, but the wisdom of Kabbalah explains how we perceive the existing reality, how we depict it in our qualities, and how we make sure that, in fact, there is no me, not my body nor surroundings.
There is only a desire within which we perceive everything. All subjects and events are images drawn in my desire! There is nothing else! However, it seems to me that they exist in reality because such are my qualities.
Now, I need to understand why I perceive this world that way, how I rise above it and create a new world within myself from my new qualities. I create it by changing my qualities and beginning to exist in both worlds, in the upper world and in this world at the lowest degree of my qualities where I have idols that I worship.
The matter of our world is given to us in sensations, and then what? Apparently, there is another kind of matter that can come into my sensations, and I will be able to control it.
Therefore, I create new worlds with five degrees in each of them, five degrees of the world of Assiya, then of the worlds of Yetzira, Beria, Atzilut, and Adam Kadmon. I ascend 125 degrees to the world of infinity that includes in itself absolutely all of the worlds and everything that exists because I fully reveal my desire in which I previously used to feel something in a very limited form and called it the world. “World” (Olam) comes from the word “concealment” (Alama).
Now, I move to the world of infinity where everything is revealed fully because all previous worlds become included in it and dissolve there. There, I feel just a white light that is called the Creator, and together with Him, I am on the level of absolute knowledge and a sense of infinity. This is the state we must reach.
