Want to see further?—Rise higher,
Above yourself. Don’t obstruct the world with your self—
Then you’ll see the upper world, the world above you!
Kissinger: “What historical period would I compare to the current one? 1938 Germany entered Austria; Jews were told not to leave their homes. German soldiers everywhere. This I’ll never forget! Then the family fled to USA.”
Perhaps it’s his way to remind the Jews of the future.
Q: How to discover the upper world for yourself?
A: Kabbalah says: Imagine yourself blind—this is how you are in the spiritual world. And now open your eyes with kindness and love: in the degree of your property of bestowal, you will discover the upper world, the Creator.
Henry #Kissinger: “I think #Trump may be one of those figures in history who appears from time to time to mark the end of an era and to force it to give up its old pretenses.”
This doesn’t mean that Trump, actually, knows it or contemplates a grandiose alternative.
Harmony does not require capitulation of one of the parties!
Nature is grounded on the balance of opposites.
Not on the competition, but on mutual complementing!
Love covers all transgressions. One doesn’t exist without the other! We’re all different. If our connection is covered with love, there’s a place for love. If there are no collisions, there is no love. One can be built only above the other; all the constructions—above the ego.
A person cannot help noticing a good example; he can also admire and envy another person. This feeling of envy is very good. It will make one learn something good. He saw and realized how useful it is to him.
It is forbidden in Kabbalah to instruct what to do, in order to preserve individuality. The only thing we can do is demonstrate a good example, and a person will take from it what he may, depending on the level of his development.
The world perceived non-egoistically, outside our senses, is incorporeal. It has no images—only the forces that we find in ourselves. They help us perceive the world in the form of forces and connections of good and evil. The Creator is the property of absolute goodness and love.
Where’s the soul?
Nothing’s created but the soul. It contains all the worlds, including ours, the lowest one, the tiniest of sensations. Everything resides in the soul. The soul’s desire is called its body, and the light fulfills it. There’s no physical world but in our sensation.
Q: So, what is this “faith above reason”?
A: Imagine you are in the presence of the Creator and merged with Him. Now continue living without parting with the Creator, as if He is obvious to you. Persistently gain experience and questions; by getting them answered, you will find Him!
All connections exist between all of us. The breaking, distancing, and concealment manifest only in relation to us, and not in the system itself. The system functions correctly. All the experiences pertain solely to us, so that we can restore the connections by way of desire.
The breaking occurred only in our mind and heart; in fact, it never took place. The entire descent of the worlds and the inverse ascent, the entire spiritual ladder—exist only in our imagination. In truth, we all remain in the same ideal state.
In the Adam system we received satisfaction through of others. After the breaking, everyone finds satisfaction on his own —through others but without their desire. This kind of fulfillment is called “the spark of life,” which revives us until we wake up to mutual bestowal.
The environment can evoke the feeling that there’s something that you don’t have. Even if he owns the entire world, he does not have something higher than this world. There’s void in his soul. The environment can awaken him and explain that he can fill this emptiness in the group
In our desire there’s a part of Adam’s state where we were all connected. This desire isn’t fulfilled. Due to the breaking, we split up and mutually separated. But we can induce ourselves toward the former connection of Arvut by way of the influence from the environment, the group.
A person cannot come out of a descent; he is bribed by selfish pleasures, buried under them. He does not have a place in his heart and in his mind to think about and feel the lack of spirituality. But without this suffering, we cannot come out of the descent.
Staying in Malchut (reason) and Bina (above reason) is a transition from our world to the upper one, Machsom, restriction, screen. Our entire work lies in discerning to what depth of desire I am able to descend in order to stay above it in bestowal, the level of faith above reason.
The Bina-Malchut relation is the relation of the creature and the Creator. All Kabbalah discusses is how to correct Malchut with Bina; whether a person/Malchut has a righteous one/Bina within—the desire to be in restriction, receive nothing, and only bestow (the property of Bina)
