The ten is all there is in all of reality, in all the worlds. All creation that developed from the four phases of direct light, HaVaYaH, is one “ten,” Malchut of the world of Infinity from 10 round Sefirot —creation. The Creator is the light of infinity filling the ten, Malchut.

Man feels another reality in which a network of bestowing, not receiving forces operates. He connects and incorporates with people operating only by the principle of mutual bestowal, wishing to belong to this network called Creator.

As we were all reminded this week, #September11 was a big shock to America! We must understand that against all violence, in any form, whatever it is, only our unity will help. We cannot justify terrorism, but we can uproot it with any means available to us.

Ibur (Conception)

laitman_270We are born in this world with a desire to enjoy, with a selfish heart in which there is one special point: the beginning of the upper world, the divine part from above. We need to transfer the importance and significance from our desire to enjoy to this point, the desire to bestow. From the desire to enjoy, only a black point should remain, and the desire to bestow, from a point, from a drop of semen, from a tiny spark, should expand to the magnitude of Bina and Keter.

This is how we move from one world to the next. Everything depends on the importance of the point in the heart, the point of bestowal and love, on exiting oneself into one’s friend, and the ever-greater disregard of one’s egoistic desire until it shrinks to a point. Although at first we feel the whole big world in this desire, it turns into a point that it originally was, into the four stages of direct Light: a black point inside the white Light. Also, the spark of bestowal will expand to the magnitude of the world of infinity, filling everything with the white Light.

We need to make all these changes through our own efforts, to increase the value of the point of bestowal and love, the spiritual spark, the Creator’s property, and simultaneously, each time we annul ourselves and the importance of our desire to enjoy in which we meanwhile perceive this whole big world.

Our entire work is to reduce our world to a single black point, to find a spiritual spark in ourselves, and raise it up to the world of infinity, a bright, vast world.

This whole process begins with the state of an embryo, when we pay attention only to the point of the white Light, to the spiritual spark, and do everything in order to augment it. We imagine ourselves staying within Bina, in the mother’s womb, and this is how we advance.1

Usually, at this time, higher egoistic aspirations awaken in a person to rise up, to establish oneself, to become famous, which are opposite to the desire to annul oneself. This is exactly the work that is given to us from above. Until a person agrees to become a zero, which does not need anything either now or in the future, he will not be able to enter the spiritual world and become a spiritual embryo. Not before.

Until a person agrees to diminish himself to zero, to one point, he will not enter the state of the embryo. It is necessary to feel this well in order to understand where this eye of a needle through which one penetrates into the spiritual world is located.2

The force that draws us into spirituality, called Moses, leads us to the foot of Mount Sinai, that is, to our insignificance in front of the mountain of doubts. This is a very difficult feeling and a person must agree with it, that is, be ready to continue despite many doubts and humiliations, reducing himself to a complete zero.

If he reduces his desire to enjoy to the very minimum necessary for existence to which his nature, the Creator, obliges him, then he is ready to receive the Torah.3

We must allow the upper one to work on us, completely trusting Him, like an infant in his mother’s arms or in the mother’s womb. The whole world is a mother’s womb and we need to become an embryo in it. Imagine how to do this; one needs to reduce one’s own desires, thoughts, and actions. Perhaps we work a lot, but it is as though we do nothing by ourselves; it is the upper one that works through us. We only want to feel how He works on us.4

Why Don’t We Feel The Upper Light?

laitman_275Question: If we talk about the Light, then what is the suffering that I feel?

Answer: It depends on the suffering: love or hate.

Suffering is the absence of the desired. If I wish to give to someone, to please, and I cannot, this is one type of suffering. If, on the contrary, I want to receive and do not receive, this is another type of suffering.

Question: It is said that if the Light of life is not clothed in the Light of mercy, it is like a sharp knife. What does this mean?

Answer: Any Light coming to us should be clothed in the quality of bestowal, to transfer it to others, and then it will be for our benefit. We must prepare for this, otherwise the Light will not come.

We do not feel the upper Light because we do not have the desire to pass it on to others. As soon as I transform myself into a conductor of Light, then immediately the upper Light opens up in me to the extent that I am opened to others.

Question: Can we then say that when I feel pain and suffering, it means that the Light of life (Hochma) is not clothed in the Light of mercy (Hassadim), in my bestowal?

Answer: Yes, I close it within myself, and it presses on me, wishing to enter.

The Game Is The Constant Work Of The Group

laitman_947Baal HaSulam, The Writings of the Last Generation: Just as we expect actors in the theater to do their best to make our imagination think that their acting is real, we expect our interpreters of religion to be able to touch our hearts so deeply that we will perceive the faith of religion as the actual reality.

We have to play a game, until “faith in this methodology will gain strength in our hearts.” Playing a game is the constant work in the group. If this is not the case, it is unlikely the group has a chance to advance.

Question: Is the agreement to act out a contract between us or is each of our contract’s in relation to the Creator? Is there a difference in these definitions?

Answer: There is no difference. The cause and the consequence change all the time: I work with the Creator for the sake of the group, or I work with the group for the Creator.

Question: So the concepts of “contract with the Creator” and “contract with the group” are the same?

Answer: Yes and no. It depends on what is the cause and what is the consequence.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 3/18/18, Part 2

laitman_627.1Question: Which actions are used as a preparation for attaining the goal according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: I would say that there is nothing except for unity.

Question: Learning the wisdom of Kabbalah accelerates our correction. Does this mean that all the suffering that is destined for my nascent soul will happen in this lifetime?

Answer: I don’t know. Everything depends on your efforts, but you can complete all of your corrections in the current incarnation.

Question: Is there some kind of stimulant we can use, like the drugs used in sports? For instance, is there something you can “eat” and immediately accelerate into the upper world?

Answer: You have to get this stimulant from your friends.

Question: Is it possible to see the entire world in one person?

Answer: There is no problem. After all, the entire world is a common general Kli.

Question: Is it true that people whose fate is difficult and complicated are closer to correction than those who live without worries?

Answer: Yes and no. I personally don’t have a difficult and complicated fate. My entire life had been arranged materially, nothing bothered or  annoyed me. But I had a different emptiness, a lack of spirituality, not something material.

Question: How is it possible to hear the quiet voice of the Creator that constantly speaks to you and not confuse it with the voice of the ego?

Answer: The Creator whispers to you about love, not in relation to yourself, but in relation to others, how to work on unity with others, how to push them toward unity in a pleasant way.

Question: What are the desires of a friend in the group that I fulfill?

Answer: These are mainly his yearning to attain the Creator.
