The Spiritual Role Of Women, Part 7

laitman_621May the Creator Decide Everything

Question: How do earthly women’s difficulties affect the development and acquisition of the spiritual property of bestowal? For example, does the inability to start a family, get married, have children, etc. somehow interfere with this or help?

Answer: If some conditions prevent you from starting a family, and you think that this pushes you to Kabbalah and not immersing yourself in raising children and serving a household, then, of course, this will happen.

I believe that regarding this we do not need to build any plans because we do not know the plans of the Creator. We should just go ahead.

There is an opportunity to get married, go ahead and marry. There is an opportunity to engage in Kabbalah, do it. When you are married and have a family, devote yourself to the family. If besides this there is an opportunity to also listen to lessons, continue to study.

But one does not have to decide: “That’s it, I will not get married, I will only deal with Kabbalah.” You cannot do it this way. Staying in our animal world, we must trust the Creator. May He decide what we should be.

Kabbalistic Terms: “Zivug”

laitman_583.01Comment: When you speak about deeply philosophical topics, you suddenly use the words “love” and “bestowal.”

My Response: Not only. In the science of Kabbalah, such terms as “Zivug,” “adhesion,” and “copulation” are often used.

Everything that happens in our world in bodies, outside bodies, between bodies, etc. naturally occurs in the spiritual forces that control our bodies and our souls. Therefore, we must name all these actions and conditions specifically. We take the words expressing the actions of our world and call them spiritual actions.

Thus, the combination of two desires, we call Zivug, that is, intercourse, merger. In the spiritual world, there is birth, pregnancy, childbirth, and so on. In general, everything that exists in our world is a consequence of the upper world, and therefore, they have the same terms. In the spiritual, all this happens in desires, not in bodies and matter.

Question: So the same way atoms come together and a molecule is obtained, do desires also unite together?

Answer: Yes. As a result, more collected, more integrated desires come out. The desires that are collected in a specific HaVaYaH system are called Sefirot, Partzuf, and then Peace.
