We all constitute a spiritual, unified system, as one man. But each one feels separate since we are opposite. However, from the upper nature’s perspective, we are all united into a single organism. The purpose of the nation of Israel is to become one large formation where everyone lives together and helps one another.
Kabbalah: Man (Adam), Israel, or “one who is similar to the Creator” (aspires to the Creator)—is the same thing. Mutual guarantee is the general spiritual law. If we can unite according to this law, where every person is responsible for the other since all are connected into a single system, we will become one nation.
Aaron David Gordon: “Israel exists only where people are responsible for one another.” Moreover, all people are responsible for one another. And man exists only where they are responsible for one another.
One must know that everyone has their time to join the group to the degree of their awareness of this. Therefore, everyone is different, but each should care about all, and the group should be felt as a mutual child. After all, everything we are waiting for will happen only in it!
Since the attainment of the Creator is possible only in a group, we must care only about it. Learn what it should be like for the Creator to be revealed in it. And implement it every day. All the care about our advancement is caring about absorbing into the group and everyone’s unity within in.
A creation can feel only through the contrast between sensations. Therefore, the lower egoism is revealed, the higher the Creator’s greatness is felt. The more contradictions there are in the Creator’s governance of the world, the more effort a person must make, thereby revealing the greater unity.
It is important, despite the emergence of incomprehensible and troublesome circumstances, to still attribute them to the Creator. Do understand that all that seems bad to us is so only in our properties, not yet corrected.
Therefore, all work consists of: a) obtaining a desire to change oneself through envy and jealousy in a group b) appeal to the Creator; as it is written: everything is achieved only through prayer.
And such an attitude toward the upper, perfectly benevolent Creator’s governance is defined as “faith above reason.”
If we felt the Creator, we would do everything selfishly. In order to reveal the Creator’s governance, we must envy the friends and strive to achieve what they allegedly achieved. Although we have no desire to bestow, we would want it out of envy, and then we can ask the Creator for the property of bestowal.
Since we are creations, we can sense only opposite phenomena such as darkness – light. Therefore, egoism is created equal to the Creator, so that we can reveal the Creator against its (light’s) background. We do not eliminate anything, but only replace the meanings—darkness is given to sense the light, while the Creator as the “help against oneself.”
Last night I spoke to the #Jewish community in #Monterey, Mexico. The lecture was dedicated to the issue painful for all world Jews, #Antisemitism.
There were many questions, doubts, anxiety. But in the end, dozens of people approached us to learn where they can obtain the wisdom of #kabbalah.
