Answer: In reality there is no Creator. The extent to which I can sense the upper Light and correct myself to be similar to it is the part within me that is called the Creator or Boreh (“bo-reh” – come and see).
The revelation of the Creator occurs according to my properties becoming similar to His properties. If there are no such properties currently within me, then there is no Creator within me.
Question: On one hand you say that we create the Creator within us. On the other hand, you say that the Creator does everything: all thoughts come from Him and He controls all people’s actions. There is a contradiction here. How can it be resolved?
Answer: It is very simple. As a matter of fact, the Creator acts the same way I act toward Him. He is the unchangeable force that fills everything, preserves everything within Him, and becomes revealed only to the extent that I move toward Him.
