Question: In the article “The Love for the Creator and Love for the Created Beings,” Baal HaSulam writes that the Kabbalistic methodology was given to one kind of people, but with the goal that they pass it on to all other people.
It turns out that from the whole creation, after hundreds of thousands of years of development, the Creator singles out a certain group of people who were predisposed to this?
Answer: He takes representatives of all the people of the world, collects them into one group, which he calls “Israel,” meaning “straight to the Creator,” and gives them this technique so they realize this goal and pass it on to everyone else.
The correction technique consists of a person acquiring the properties, meaning the properties of bestowal, when I put the desires of the other above mine.
Question: If the Creator is a property of bestowal, then He does not think about Himself?
Answer: Of course. He does not even have a single thought about Himself. We, on the other hand, always think about ourselves. Above these thoughts, we build thoughts about others.
