Baal HaSulam, “Building the Future Society”: An antagonist might still claim that I have thus far only demonstrated that one must serve one’s fellow person, but where is the practical proof that one must adhere to this precept for the sake of the Creator?
Question: We can still understand what the fulfillment of the law of nature “for the sake of people” is: “you are for my sake, I am for your sake,” and together we are building a good society for the future. And what does it mean to fulfill this law for the sake of the Creator who is in concealment?
Answer: If I strictly follow the instructions of the Kabbalists, then I feel like I am in a state where the Creator is in front of me and I can work in partnership with Him.
Question: But the Creator is concealed from me. How can I do something for His sake if I don’t feel His actions?
Answer: The Creator is a condition that the wisdom of Kabbalah sets before you, and a teacher explains to you how to behave.
If you fulfill these conditions, you begin to feel that there are positive and negative forces in nature, and they constantly act on you: the positive force on one side, and the negative force on the other, and there is contradiction or agreement, etc.
Question: That is, the Creator is the goal and the neighbor is the means. If I find the strength or ability to put the needs of my neighbor above my own in myself, then the quality of the Creator is manifested in me?
Answer: Of course, the quality of bestowal. At the same time, you begin to feel that you exist at the level of the Creator according to the law of equivalence of form.
