Perceiving The World As A Manifestation Of The Creator

laitman_603Question: Are spiritual and material events orchestrated in advance and occur as a pre-directed scenario of life?

Answer: Of course. That is how they come out. Are we the ones that make them happen? The world appears to us in its new forms, and we have to learn to understand them, attain them, associate ourselves with them, and as such progress.

At every moment you are presented with a certain picture of the world, you have to adapt to it, understand it, connect with it, and try to make it better. The way you understand the surrounding world is what determines your advancement.

In principle, each time you should see the world as a manifestation of the Creator. Can you imagine how flawed we must be to see the world around us as full of terrible things, depression, and awful tensions?

Question: Let’s say something is revealed to us. What should be my first reaction? Should I say “there’s none else besides Him”?

Answer: First of all, you have to understand that the Creator is the upper force that determines, acts, and fills everything. What this force is showing you is perfection, but you distort this picture to the degree of your corruptness by seeing it without the “glasses,” through the lens of your egoism.

Question: So, do I have to justify everything?

Answer: Not just justify, but to see and feel this perfection. You then have to adhere to Him in such a way that through this attainment, through the correction of corruptness to the level of perfection, you will unite with the Creator. On one side of the screen there is you, and on the other, Him.

Question: And if I see that I cannot attribute this force to “none else besides Him,” that I can’t justify it?

Answer: You have an opportunity to pray, to ask Him to correct you so that you will see the world as perfect.

But if you want this in order to feel good, you will not get anything. If, however, you want to see the world as perfect in order to not curse the Creator because it brings you pain, then you will receive. You are asking the Creator to give you the power to see Him the way He is: good that does good.
