From The Tree Of Knowledge To Our Days

Laitman_931.02Question: What are the connections between us that the Creator is revealed in?

Answer: We are updating the connection that existed between us before the shattering; we are trying to strengthen it. This work, although it seems complicated to us, is actually quite simple.

There was a four-letter structure of HaVaYaH with all kinds of secondary private HaVaYaH. It was built from the first nine Sefirot. They had the Light, a screen, 288 parts, Lights (RAPACH). These first nine Sefirot were joined by Malchut to carry out the complete correction (Gmar Tikkun).

That is, 32 more pieces were added to RAPACH to make 620—a perfect structure. But it was impossible to do this because an additional desire to enjoy was revealed, which was not known beforehand, as in shattering of the vessels in the world of Nekudim.

This is how shattering happened—the sin of the Tree of Knowledge. These 32 parts, Malchut that cannot be corrected by the intention for bestowal mixed with all the nine Sefirot, including all their private sub-Sefirot, and because of Malchut, the entire structure shattered, which means it acquired the desire to receive for the sake of reception.

That is, the intention shattered and not the connection. The network of connections remained. But the type of connections within this network has become for the sake of reception, and therefore, it is called shattering. A good aspiration from one to another shattered and instead of it, an evil aspiration was revealed.

Now we need to fix this. But we do not have to search between whom and with whom to establish connections. The Creator brought a person to the group, to a teacher, to a good fate and said: “Choose this!” We just have to change the intention: what do I connect with others for, what do I want from this connection? That is, we do not correct the connections between us but only the type of these connections. And this is what the entire correction is about.

A connection between all people exists. It is only necessary to correct the quality of the connections: from the intention “for one’s own sake” to “for the sake of bestowal.” According to this, we will discover ever greater opportunities and new connections, but they will open up on the path of correction.

Therefore, all that we need to do is to acquire an altruistic intention instead of an egoistic intention, which will be revealed. We must only make efforts to transform same connections into bestowal. For this purpose, we study The Book of Zohar and the rest of the wisdom of Kabbalah.
