How Can I Not Lose Myself?

laitman_608.02Question: Today, I am aware of what I am. This somehow enables me to find my way in this world. When I study your articles and watch your videos, I often hear you say that attaining the Creator means being in adhesion with Him.

This invokes fear in me that if I get closer to the Creator and merge with Him, I will cease to exist. What is this fear and what is adhesion to the Creator?

Answer: Adhesion to the Creator is achieved when your egoism dissipates and its importance decreases, and instead, the importance of the attribute of bestowal, which we call the Creator, emerges. It begins to rule all your other attributes, forces, and intentions.

This means that the attribute of bestowal, connection, and love for everything that is external to you is the means that brings you closer to the Creator. This is a spiritual attribute. If you begin to feel that it is gradually manifesting in you, it means that you are on the right path.

Question: Don’t I lose my uniqueness, my individuality by that?

Answer: You do not lose anything because the attribute that you acquire also stems from your egoism, but it is opposite to it.
