Torah, Deuteronomy 23:22 – 23:23: When you make a vow to the Lord, your God, you shall not delay in paying it, for the Lord, your God, will demand it of you, and it will be [counted as] a sin for you. But if you shall refrain from making vows, you will have no sin.
If you really desire to be in touch with the Creator and understand that there is no one else besides Him, then you cannot promise anything in advance, you cannot count on your strength and vow that you will do it.
How can you rely on the next moment; what if suddenly egoism flares up in you? Then, what?
Question: In other words, I should not sign any alliances, no papers that say: “I will do it, I am confident in myself,” as this is a notorious loss?
Answer: Internally, within yourself – for sure! Only the Creator directs all that is in you. Union with the Creator can exist only if you completely dwell in His properties.
If “There is none else besides Him,” it cannot be otherwise. You simply understand that all your thoughts and actions will always depend only on Him a 100%, and no less.
Question: So, it is always saying: “If you insert the ‘I,’ you’re a loser”?
Answer: You can insert the “I” by annulling it completely. This becomes your alliance with the Creator.
