The middle line is Man, IsraEl (Yashar-Kel – straight to the Creator), directing me at the Creator. The encounter with the Creator happens in the middle line, where there is no hatred or love, but there is a sensation of adhesion above them. Love is built above hatred, but adhesion is the middle line, their sum.
I must care for the balance of two opposites, not degrading hatred nor love. I attribute both forces to the Creator. I am equally grateful to Him for both of them. I incorporate both of these qualities. I feel that I am independent of them.
I build a point of connection with the Creator—in the middle line.
The middle line is the degree of creation’s adhesion with the Creator. I am neither love nor hatred. I build myself when I understand that there are two forces in existence and I prefer one over the other, since I value the Creator’s qualities more than creation’s qualities. By connecting the two lines, I build myself out of both.
At every moment I have new thoughts and a new attitude to the neighbor—in it, I feel how the Creator relates to me, what He wants to say. By wishing to bring all relationships to unity and love, I thereby respond to the Creator, I converse with Him. This is the beginning of a dialogue, a connection, with the Creator…
Do not ascribe hatred or love to yourself—you receive them from above. But always attribute yourself to the middle line, balancing hatred and love, so they will operate as one whole. One cannot exist without the other. As a creation, I exist between opposites.
When rejection from the group arises over and over again, one must understand that this is a transition to a new degree, which always starts with breakage. That is the only way we can advance and keep rising higher up the degrees of unity and love.
We must rejoice at the evil that is revealed in us: a transgression that hasn’t been revealed cannot be corrected! In one’s spiritual development, one must go through all the stages of hatred till love. It is impossible to love if one has not gone through hatred.
Our work is to turn evil, hatred, into goodness, love.
Egoism in a person comes from one’s oppositeness to the Creator, the force of bestowal, love and unity. Therefore all egoistic qualities, feelings, thoughts and desires that arise in a person are initially given to him so he can exist precisely opposite the Creator.
We are in the Creator, the field of bestowal and love. And there is none else besides Him. We can feel Him only to the extent of our equivalence to Him. If we don’t aspire to feel Him in equivalence to Him, we are urged on by the reverse, negative influence in order to move toward Him. It’s time that we understood this and became wiser
Wherever there is no reflected light, intention to bestow, clothing over direct light, there is no manifestation of direct light, the Creator, as if He does not exist. Therefore, turn all your actions toward acquiring the intention to bestow—in it you will reveal the Creator.
