Thanks to the revelations made by Kabbalists over thousands of years, the science of Kabbalah explains to us what the purpose of creation is, where evolution is leading us, and according to what laws.
The Creator created us as one soul and then shattered it, which resulted in many different desires that feel each other as strangers. Because of this division, everyone feels independent, separate, different from others, and instinctively repels them and they him.
So, the world developed more and more: inanimate nature, plants, animals, and humans. Humanity has developed due to the fact that these desires have been growing all the time, displaying more and more independence, disunity, and conflicting interests. At all levels of nature there is a force of attraction and a force of rejection.
In the inanimate, vegetative, and animate world, the force of attraction acts in an instinctive way to help all exist as nature dictates and not by free choice. And among people too, the force of attraction acts as a natural attraction to sex and family. This is how humanity existed for generations.
In fact, there is no such attraction between people. The Creator, the common force that broke the common desire into many parts, wants them to grow and reveal how far apart and opposite they are. And at the same time, we discover our connection, dependence, and benefits of our unity.
But although we could achieve a wonderful life through the connection and cooperation of people, countries, and nations, we spend huge amounts of energy, money, and resources on war, as we seek to ruin and destroy each other. It is painful to watch humanity fight desperately for its separation instead of benefitting from connection.
It is a pity that people do not understand that this is all a game the Creator is playing with us. It is necessary to preserve the power of evil without destroying it, to build a plus over this minus, to cover all sins with love. And then we will exist in a system that contains the whole force of evil and all the force of good. The good force will cover all evil and overcome it, and in this form, we can receive all the good from this system.
This was the purpose of the shattering: to reveal the hidden, inner, good forces in us as the advantage of light over darkness. If we don’t reveal the darkness, we will not reveal the light and all its qualities. Therefore, we must pass through all the bad states, as in “And there was evening and there was morning, one day.” Night and day always alternate so that all sins are covered by love. Therefore, the sin is always revealed first and only then the unity.
Our work is to put together a system that includes two opposing forces. And they should not close on each other as in a short circuit, like a short-circuit of positive and negative in a power grid. It is necessary to put a load between them, a resistor, resistance. Then the plus and minus will not cancel each other. but will connect and give a positive result upon this resistance, useful work.
Our task is to stand between the plus and the minus, between the egoistic nature created by the Creator, the evil inclination, and the upper light, which we attract through our efforts, the good inclination. We exist between good and evil, doing our work.
And then the system of Adam HaRishon, created by the Creator in the form of a mini-model that exists only due to its strength, will be filled with our force, our load. Plus and minus, the power of evil and the power of good, can work in this system as two poles that do not cancel each other but create a potential difference that allows us to reveal our work in the system of the common soul of Adam.
The darkness will shine as light: these two forces will be able to ignite all the light of infinity within this system that was previously broken. If we put the full measure of our strength into it to connect our desires back together, we get one common desire in which the whole light is revealed.
We must look at this system as a mechanical network that does not depend on our feelings. In other words, we can go from absolute minus to absolute plus, from rejection to connection, from hatred to love. And it is good that changes are happening to us all the time, from one extreme to the other. The main thing is to constantly remember that we exist in the system of the single soul of Adam, and this is all nature, which must be brought to correct connection.
And then we will not depend much on our emotions, but will follow reason, that is, we will engage in the wisdom of Kabbalah, the wisdom of connection. Let different feelings appear in us from plus to minus, the main thing is to aim forward over all these experiences to complete unity, which is called love.
