From The History Of Primary Sources

137Comment: The Torah appeared 1,500 years ago. It was originally written as a single sentence consisting of 79,976 words.

In its first stage, the Torah consisted of five books. Then, if we talk about the Tanakh, in the period before the destruction of the First Temple, the Prophets were written, and in the period before the destruction of the Second Temple, the Scriptures were written.

In 1947, a huge number of scrolls were found in the Qumran caves, which belong to the same period, but for some reason were not included in the Tanakh.

My Response: These are scrolls of a very different type. They are different from those that existed in the time of the Great Assembly because they refer to the first century of our era, toward the end of the existence of both the country and the nation.

Comment: According to Baal HaSulam, they were written by people who were not in attainment.

My Response: It is very difficult for us to understand these people. But we are still a level below them, disconnected from the true Torah. Although they were already in a state of falling from its level, they still felt spiritual connection.

Question: Can a Kabbalist take a scroll, read it, and determine who wrote it: a person who has attained spirituality or not?

Answer: Of course he can. But that doesn’t mean anything. There were many who understood the Creator at different levels, both after the destruction of the Temple and after the Roman and Greek exile of the people. However, we only take into account what was written before the exile. These are the Torah, the Prophets, the Scriptures, the Talmud, and, of course, The Book of Zohar.

Fly Through Time

233Question: What do forward and backward mean in the spiritual coordinate system? Is it cause and effect, time, or something else?

Answer: There is no going backward in spirituality at all because that is regression, and the only direction we move is forward.

Moving forward is based on greater connection, unity between us. The more we accelerate time, which makes us closer, we ourselves try to get closer to each other, the more we will hasten time and advance toward the future ahead of all of humanity.

We can easily find ourselves 200 to 300 years ahead while all of humanity will still be in our miserable 21st century.

The only thing we need to do is to accelerate the unity between us. A group that does this becomes like a spaceship. It flies through time feeling it as one of the parameters it can change. This is what we also say about the spiritual world that is above time and space.

Individuality That Does Not Contradict Equality

600.02Question: In your blog, you wrote: “We are not able to tolerate equality, to measure it. It does not exist for us at all. We understand what it means to be above or below others, but where equality begins, we lose sensation. Therefore, the balance is given from above, as the middle line, and comes along with the revelation of some upper force.” What does it mean?

Answer: There is nothing more contrary to our nature than equality because then the individuality of each person is erased. One cannot tolerate it.

There are people who get used to it and enjoy equality, like, for example, soldiers in the army. But at the same time, there must still be some specific goal related to education. Soldiers in the army are just soldiers. They must fulfill their mechanical function, and in this, they move toward a goal that is common for them.

If we talk about the development of society, about how to move forward toward some ideal, then we cannot make sure that all people will be absolutely equal. We are not going to make everyone a soldier because then society would simply freeze and not develop.

Therefore, we must give people the opportunity to show their individuality so that everyone has an equal chance to develop independently and give everything to society.
