The White Spot On The Map Of The Universe

laitman_942Our entire work is to find out where we have freedom of will and how to use it correctly. Everything comes from the Creator: the Light, the desire to bestow, and the desire to receive pleasure. But where do we find something that depends on us when the Light and the desire contact and interact with one another?

Did the Creator intentionally leave this area free, the middle third of the Sefira Tifferet, where independence was given to us? Or does He only pretend and quietly look after us like we are little children thinking that we are left home alone?

Freedom of will is realized only in the group, in the ten. This is where the Creator is revealed. The point of contact between me, the group, and the Creator is where I reveal this free area in the desire, in the thought, and in the action: the white spot, terra incognita, the unknown land.

To Reveal The Perfect Reality

laitman_744The Creator initially made the creation perfect because there are no restrictions in time, place, and the performance of any conditions for the upper force.

But with respect to us there is a concealment so that we can attain, reveal, study, and imagine these conditions, the law “There is none else besides Him, the good that does good,” that is, absolute perfection, and become like Him.

Therefore, until we reach the end of correction, all this reality is only represented in our sense organs. And beyond us, there is only the world of infinity where the beginning of creation and its end are not divided. The Creator doesn’t need any means, actions, or intermediate states between the thought and its realization.

We should always envisage ourselves relative to a perfect state although we fail to reveal it, envision it correctly, or even imagine it.

But we must constantly remember that we are always positioned against perfection, each time discovering its shortcomings in small parts to the extent that we are able to resist it and get closer to perfection.

Therefore, any state is welcome. We need to bless it and learn how to properly resist it according to spiritual and material laws, which are also established by the will of the upper force. Therefore, by fulfilling them, we can correct ourselves until at the end of each given state we decide that “there is none else besides Him.” From this one concludes how one should treat all troubles: from health, to external, social, family problems, trying to relate everything to “there is none else besides Him” and in a general way, correct one’s attitude. After all, everything depends only on our attitude: the way we look at reality is the way it appears.

How To Change The Evil Ruler To Good

laitman_206In today’s world (i.e., in what seems in our sensations as an external reality), our egoism—the qualities opposite to the Creator—rules. To the extent we correct our desire in the direction of bestowal, we will see and agree that the world is ruled not by egoism, not by Pharaoh, but by the Creator.

Everything depends only on us: we change the evil ruler into good. All our work is to reveal the governance of bestowal and love instead of the governance of egoism. This depends on the person because the entire world is a reflection of one’s desires, as it is written, “Everyone judges according to his own flaws.”

A person’s task is to correct his desire so that it does not prevent the Creator from filling it in the same way He fills all the rest of reality. For this, I should not feel myself as separate from the Creator. It is a matter of our perception of reality, which we must correct in order to feel that “The whole earth (desire) is full of His glory,” meaning that the Creator reveals Himself in all of a person’s desires.

Our uncorrected desires that are opposite in form to the Creator are revealed within us, and we need to try to replace them with the principle “There is none else besides Him.”

A person is not capable of doing this alone. He can only imagine it. If he wants to really achieve correction, then his desire should become similar to the Creator, to the qualities of bestowal and love. Therefore, we need to work together with others so that the Creator will rule in the common desire.

This is how, over and over again, we correct more and more of the uncorrected desire that is revealed from the shattering. Through connection with friends, we achieve connection with the Creator and thus correct reality until we see that all of it is filled with only one force and “The whole earth is full of His glory.”

New Life 925 – Inner Solitude

New Life 925 – Inner Solitude
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Spiritual development requires introspection. While solitude can mean being alone with oneself to reflect, it can also refer to the idea of exiting oneself and thinking of someone else. In order to develop spiritually, we need to annul ourselves and connect with others. In this way, we become similar to the Creator.
