Question: Is it said that the Creator plays with the Leviathan (whale)? What does it mean?
Answer: The Leviathan symbolizes the total creation, billions of people.
Question: That is, all events, everything that passes through me, everything I feel, is like the Creator’s game with me?
Answer: Of course. In order for you to start seeing the world as something connecting you with the Creator.
Question: But why does man not feel that there is this force, the Creator who plays with him?
Answer: Man has not reached that level yet. He must achieve this state. In the meantime, from everything that comes to him from the world, he accepts only the most necessary things for existence, which means he lives normally, like ordinary people in our world.
But what does “normally” mean? If all his aspirations are aimed at revealing the upper world and the Creator, then he unwittingly receives everything necessary in a natural way. He does not limit himself, but simply does not want more because all his thoughts are higher than his corporeal body. And then he rushes to the Creator and feels Him.
