Fantasies And Reality, Part 3

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: If our entire world is an illusion, what is reality then?

Answer: Reality is what exists outside of a person irrespective of him. Whether there is humanity or not, whether the world exists or not, this reality exists eternally, above time, movement, and space. It is not dependent on any of our three-dimensional restrictions and time.

We live in an imaginary reality where there is up and down, right and left, forward and backward, and the flow of time in which everything is changing. But the true reality exists beyond time, meaning above the speed of light. After all, it is not dependent on time and does not change.

We can reveal the true reality, and then we will discover that only one force exists, the force of bestowal. This force is called upper because it created all of our reality and sustains it, leading it to the attainment of the Creator’s force, the force of bestowal and love. This is the way we discover Him to be. We do not know what He is, and can perceive Him only according to how He manifests himself in our qualities, our perception, relative to us.

The Creator’s attitude toward us, the way we perceive it, is what we call the Creator or Boreh, from the words “come” (Bo) and “to see” (Reh), discover Him.

Question: Will each person discover the Creator in his or her own way?

Answer: Certainly. Even the same person discovers the Creator in a new form all the time.

Question: So is there only one true reality or many?

Answer: The upper force is one, but we perceive it differently each time due to the changes within us.

Kabbalah is called a hidden wisdom because it studies what is concealed from us and helps us to reveal it. It teaches a person how to rise above the egoistic glasses, to get out of their boundaries, and to discover the true reality.

Question: And what is the final goal?

Answer: The goal is to reveal the upper force. To the extent that we reveal it, we ourselves rise to its degree and become eternal and perfect just like it. We get out of an illusion, a deception, and return to the truth, to the world of truth, and that is why Kabbalah is called a true wisdom.
