Question: According to Kabbalah, what does one reveal in the process of attainment in the beginning and what is at the end?
Answer: First one reveals that everything in the world is created for man so that he will comprehend the Creator’s properties. Therefore, the meaning of existence is to reveal the Creator’s actions in ourselves.
At the end, when one achieves complete correction, he reveals that everything inside him happens in tune with the Creator, in absolute agreement with Him.
Question: It is believed that first one reveals “There is none else beside Him,” and then that “He is good and does good.” Can we break it down into such stages?
Answer: You can say so. But on every step, it is all mixed together.
Question: In the book Shamati, it is written: “The Creator is my shadow.” How can one ascend in attaining the Creator, realizing that He is one’s shadow? Does something stop us from seeing this?
Answer: “The Creator is my shadow” means that everything is the Creator’s reflection, and man too. How the Creator moves with respect to man, so man does these movements.
