Up The 125 Steps Of Faith

laitman_239Faith above reason is the spiritual stage that we need to build on top of our current stage which is called “reason.”

At the higher level, it is not me ruling with my desires, sensations, and reason; only the Creator rules. This is the highest level for me in which “There is none but the Creator, the good that doeth good.” It is called the level of faith. I can relate to it provided that I “believe,” that is, I acquire the property of bestowal or Bina.

I rise above myself and say: “I have eyes, but do not see. I have ears, but do not hear”; that is, I accept the authority of the Creator. And, as far as I can decide for myself that only the Creator acts in all of reality, my spiritual level of faith is higher than reason.

Therefore, all of our work, from this moment to the end of correction, is to achieve a greater and greater degree of faith above reason. There are a total of 125 steps to climb so that each time our power of bestowal, which is called faith, outweighs the power of reception, which is called reason.

After all, we do not understand the Creator and do not feel Him. Each time, we must comprehend Him from scratch, coming from a state of the complete unknown and insensibility to a state of reason and sensation, that is, from an unconscious state into a state of consciousness.

And, therefore, I must fully accept the governance of the Creator, it reigning over my whole world. This is called faith. I hold, as far as I can, in the knowledge and the feeling that the Creator is the only ruler in the world.
