Question: You often say that the Creator doesn’t exist, and on the other hand, sometimes more often, you say that only the Creator exists, that “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35). How is it possible to understand this? Does the Creator exist or not?
Answer: The Creator doesn’t exist by itself.
The Creator is what a person creates from his altruistic desires, intentions, and actions. To the degree that he builds those desires, intentions, and actions with his friends, he reveals the Creator.
The amorphous Upper Light that is called “His essence” exists around us always. It is not tangible, it has no form, it is not “clothed” in anything, and it is impossible to attain it. But the Creator is something that a person absorbs through his “sensors,” through his spiritual characteristics, that he creates through an alliance with his friends.
So there is no divinity. About the Creator, it is said, “You created me.”
There are 2% atheists and 98% believers in the world, but the divinity imagined by those believers doesn’t exist, rather it exists through what is attained with our corrected feelings, and this is called the “Creator” (Boreh) from the words, “Bo” (come) and “Reh” (see). To the degree that a person approaches the characteristics of the Creator and feels Him, to that degree he attains Him, and for him this will be the Creator. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches how to attain it.
