Remark: As I understand, in Kabbalah there is no plea for mercy, no atonement for sins in exchange for promises of unquestioning obedience?
My Comment: We deal with serious actions. I do not stand before the judge begging for forgiveness. I face a system that completely defines me and I am trying to figure out how we influence each other.
If I have any requests, I have to state them in such a way that the system will correctly respond to them. If there are no requests, then this is a problem because the system expects real intervention from me in it.
Question: Is it just like I cannot pray to the law of attraction?
Answer: Of course! How is the law of gravity different from others? This is also the law and force of the Creator, like all other forces of nature.
Question: What is the difference between the Creator and the laws of nature?
Answer: There is no difference. Pray to the law of gravity. You can pray to any force of nature and ask to be in the right alignment with it.
Question: If I fall, I cannot ask the law of gravity to soften the blow?
Answer: No, it will not help.
Question: What should I do? Should I place a mattress or something else to soften the fall?
Answer: It will help. Or you should ask the Creator to make sure that you do not fall: “How should I change so as not to fall?”
That is, you do not ask Him to protect you from falling, but you ask how to change in order not to fall. Everyone in the world asks for protection, but it does not help. But to change, to make yourself better, so that you are properly acted upon by the forces of nature so you do not fall, that you can ask. That is, you only ask for your correction and nothing else.
