Question from Facebook: Forgive me, but I have a feeling that you are engaged in schizophrenia and call it “faith above reason.” How is it possible to be in this world and see what I see, and at the same time to be in the other world and see what I do not see?
Answer: Schizophrenia is when I see something else besides this world.
We are talking about dividing the perception of everything within me into two parts: things that are happening within me and the force that projects, creates, and arranges all this within me, that is, plays with me. I see the world divided into two parts: the internal and the external, or the lower and the upper.
I am also divided into those two parts and therefore from within myself I see this world as such. One of these parts is my egoistic part, the desire to receive. The second, altruistic part, created by me as a result of studying Kabbalah, is the desire to bring contentment, to give to someone outside of me, through all the creatures, to the Creator. I consist of these two parts.
Comment: Everyone is confused by your statement that while we are on the first level, we are also on the second level.
My Comment: Certainly. This is written in all Kabbalistic books, starting from Adam, meaning almost six thousand years ago. So, this “disease” is neglected and must be investigated.
I invite everybody to explore it and to discover that we are not spiritual schizophrenics, that we are so ill because we are only in one world—ours, the worst one. Not knowing the upper world, its purpose, the forces that control us, where they lead us, and what they want from us, we, like blind kittens, suffer without any subsequent desirable states.
Question: Is it also because we deny the second level?
Answer: Yes. Do not reject it immediately at its root. We should study and see how realistic this is.
