A Soul Similar To The System Of Creation

laitman_254.01The common soul that was one and connected was divided into many parts after the shattering; we need to assemble and connect these parts in order to reveal the Creator through them.

The difference between the original vessel and the one reconstructed after the shattering is that the shattering revealed new qualities that previously were not apparent. It is because of them that the soul shattered, and through their correction additional qualities of the Light are revealed against these broken desires. And in this way we scrutinize the internality of the Creator that created this soul and corrects with His Light.

If not for the shattering and correction, we would not feel more than the first man, Adam, felt before the sin, meaning just a state of smallness (Katnut) Nefesh/Ruach de Ruach. And after the shattering and the correction, we reveal the complete Light of NRNHY, that is, we adhere to the Creator Himself, reach equivalence of form with Him, understand His way and wisdom embedded in the creation.

Therefore, it is impossible to avoid the shattering and the correction. The end of correction is a point initially included in the plan of creation.

The soul has to correct itself according to the entire system of creation that includes in itself all the worlds of Adam Kadmon and ABYA. The soul is the most internal part of the entire system of creation, therefore, through our correction it must acquire the same form as all the upper worlds, consisting of three parts: head-body-extremities (Rosh-Toch-Sof), then of three lines, and a large number of complex forms.

When they connect together, the differences do not disappear because “love covers all transgressions.” The corrected soul keeps the whole great egoism within itself, all the immense desires and contradictions. Everything that existed before is preserved, nothing is erased. Even, on the contrary, negative manifestations help us reveal the Light, the advantage of which is revealed from the darkness.

There is a great work ahead of us; after all, Adam had no head, body, and extremities—there was simply one body positioned on one level that was filled with the Light of Hassadim. He was born circumcised like an angel, in the state of smallness (Katnut). An infant has no intelligence and cannot stand but can only lie down, that is, his head is on the same level with the body.

And we need to place this broken soul on its feet, in the upright position of a person. Therefore, in our work, we select parts of the soul that belong to the head and the body and we clarify the role of each of them. All the parts of the soul after the shattering are already prepared for correction, but we have to invite the upper Light, find out the locations of breakage, and correct them.

Those who will be drawn to spiritual work will be called the head of Adam, the common soul. And the rest are parts of his body. That is why Israel, meaning “those who yearn straight to the Creator,” are called “My head” (Li-Rosh).

Chosen to Work Without a Reward

The virtuous people are those who work in three lines, are in the head of the soul, and can perform scrutinies and corrections by passing the Light through themselves to the broken desires so that they become corrected, connected, and joined to it, thus creating a complete Partzuf.

We need to agree to be the virtuous people because there is no coercion in spirituality. Therefore, we will get blows from above until we give our consent to do this work, and we should agree wholeheartedly. Through the blows we begin to understand what is good and what is bad for us and therefore we agree.

To be a high priest (Kohen) means not to receive any reward for one’s work: he corrects the entire world and brings everyone closer to the Creator so that everybody is connected to Him and filled with the Light of infinity, and he gets nothing for it. This is called work of a high priest, Kohen.

The Kohen does not have any land, any estate, only pure work for the Creator from which nothing is left for him. His reward is only in having strength for the work in order to continue working and giving contentment to the Creator. This is the pure bestowal.

Each person in the world in whom the Creator awakened a spiritual spark belongs to the virtuous people and must work for the correction of the world. Due to the fact that we connect with each other and come to “Love your neighbor as yourself,” we come to the love for the Creator, and we must pull humanity after us. This is our mission; after all, we have received a desire for this work and there is no choice—we have to realize this desire.

The world is divided into those to whom the Creator gave this desire and to whom He did not give it. Why this desire is given to us, we do not know. It will become clear later, but it will not be important because all who fulfill their mission are absolutely equal—everything rounds up into a circle and each one attains all the degrees up to the height of our forefather Moses.1

In The Initial Thought

laitman_252We can never truly unite our desires and our intentions. We can connect only within the Creator. There we interconnect and become a ten. That is why it is necessary to constantly speak about the greatness of the Creator, without Whom we will not complete our construction of the ten. We can talk endlessly about unity, but nothing will happen.

The end of the action must already be laid in the initial thought, that is, in adhesion with the Creator; therefore, it must be involved in the beginning of each action.1

New Life 983 – Feeling Others

New Life 983 – Feeling Others
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

We are social creatures and our future depends on our ability to build mutual relationships where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Warm and connected families provide an example of how we need to organize the entire world. We become insecure, empty, isolated, and suspicious when we are disconnected from family. The educational challenge before us is to build a society in which everyone will feel as they would in a warm, loving family.

Man’s desires contain a need that’s absent in the animate world—an urge to adhere to the Creator. Only humankind is ready for this and its entire existence is evaluated only by this foundation, evoking the drive to bestow to the Creator (Baal HaSulam, “About Yehuda”).

The upper nature is a system connecting us into one whole.
But we see a broken world.
Just as we draw a picture and break it up into parts
For a child to put it together and understand,
That’s how we have to put ourselves, our broken world, together correctly,
Using hints from above.

There’s no #Jewish nation in disunity (exile from unity). It exists only when united. From the 1st degree of unity, 1/125 of the Creator’s unity, it’s already called a nation. Until then, Jews are preserved by the Creator and return to #Israel to fulfill their mission.

When we unite with each other in mutual bestowal, all of our individual egos unite and are transformed into a force of resistance, protection. All of the serpent’s venom turns into medicine. Everything depends only on how it is used.

#Shavuot is when we turn the #evil force into the good force. These two forces stand one against the other. The entire thickness of #egoistic armor is our evil inclination, above which we build a bestowing intention, bestowal for the sake of bestowal.
#Israel #wisdom

#Shavuot is a spiritual state when we can attain the giving of the Torah by uniting with one other and the Creator, when we turn the force of each person’s egoism into thick armor. By uniting, we infuse it with the life force of light, turning it into armor against all #evil forces.

We must implement the giving of Torah to all humanity so it will feel its existence in the quality of love, goodness, interconnection, and everyone will be able to rise to the next degree of reality. This is the giving of #Torah – Upper Light, Upper Force

The Torah isn’t a book that you can read and understand, but it’s a matrix, a world you can enter and reveal the system of all reality,
