“But Not Only With You Am I Making This Covenant”

laitman_937Torah, Deuteronomy 29:13 – 29:14: But not only with you am I making this covenant and this oath, but with those standing here with us today before the Lord, our God, and [also] with those who are not here with us, this day.

Correction of the common soul is consecutive. It spreads into the levels of its ego from level zero to level five.

First, each of the five egoistic levels divides into five more and then further divides into an additional five. Second, each level and all the subsequent categories divide into three lines, twelve tribes, and tens.

These multiple divisions provide an optimal and easy way to change from the use of egoism to love and bestowal. There are desires involved in this change right now, others that will be corrected later, and still others that will be corrected much later.

The thing is, the Torah seemingly describes the history of what happened to the Jewish people as well as what is still to come. However, in reality, the story doesn’t exist. Nothing from the story is real. All these images in our conscious minds actually represent relationships between spiritual forces or Sefirot.

So all the memories of the past that are incorporated in anthropology, history, cosmology, and other disciplines only actually exist in our imaginations. We need to understand that everything that is written in the Torah only happens on the levels of consciousness, understanding, and the spiritual attainment of a person.

The Torah speaks of all of this on the levels of the forefathers, then their sons, and later, on our level. And all of it can, provisionally, be broken down into historical brackets and periods of time because in reality it never existed. This is how it works in our consciousness.

The Torah speaks of how a person can attain spirituality when he starts to work on himself. However, if he does not exert in this work, then everything the Torah speaks of does not really exist for him. The Torah is imprinted in his subconscious when he starts to read, attain, and hear, but it is just a shadow of what he should go through internally.

Comment: So, here now stand the forefathers, the nation that already entered there, and now us, here today…

My Response: Those standing here are the ones in the state of the weekly Torah portion. They attain this for themselves because there is no past, present, or future. Everything exists only in relation to the attaining person.
