Building The Future Society, Part 13

laitman_246Why should I believe Kabbalists?

Comment: Many people can say: “Why should I believe the Kabbalists that the Creator is the quality of bestowal and love?”

My Response: You do not need to believe, you just need to advance society toward this, bring it closer, carefully, and gradually. Why talk about it? Although this won’t do harm, people will not escape. Today they are in such circumstances that there is not much time left for discussion.

Comment: Now, many scientists also say that everything is so subjective that you can neither prove nor deny the existence of the Creator, but you can just come up with many different theories. It’s hard to prove something, as our brain works so that we can accept any theory.

My Response: The Creator is the law of nature. And we must simply realize this law, as the entirety of nature in its integral complexity is called the Creator.

Question: And you are not trying to prove it?

Answer: No. You can’t prove anything to anyone. How can I prove to a young child the existence of something that goes beyond his perception? There is no way. The only thing I can do is to patiently raise him, elevating him to the level where he will see everything and tell himself. Otherwise, no.

Question: So, it is impossible to explain to a person that there are two laws—the law of receiving and the law of bestowal—and when we give to society, we become like the Creator?

Answer: Why not? This can be explained, and very easily. We can see on an inanimate, vegetative, and animal level how these laws are observed, how everything is built on a balance between receiving and bestowing.

However, at the level of society, we do not see this because in it, on the contrary, everything is built only on reception, and bestowal is possible only if I can get even more instead. That is, in society there is no bestowal at all. There is reception camouflaged as bestowal.

This means that the laws of inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature need to be elevated to the level of the state of society, to the human level, and there they must be realized and put into practice.

Therefore, we need to see how this is done, how it can be so that in society reception and bestowal, plus and minus, exist in us in the same way as at the previous three levels. Is it possible or not? This, in principle, is the whole problem and all our misfortunes. If we can do this, then we will have a perfect world.

Here I am not talking about religion, nor about the Creator, nor about anyone. It’s just what the world needs, and today we see it. Let’s try to implement it.
From the KabTV’s “Fundamentals of Kabbalah,” 2/7/19
