Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Why aren’t we born knowing everything?“
If we were born with complete knowledge about ourselves, the world and reality in general, then we would be no more than machines or robots.
The desire of the force that created us, called “the Creator” in the wisdom of Kabbalah, is to create us in a way where we reach total resemblance to it. Therefore, we are given room for freewill, choice, decision and action.
It is impossible to reach sameness with the Creator if we experience zero problems, descents and ascents, and develop in our understanding of reality.
We are thus on quite a tough path toward a complete attainment of reality. This path, however, constantly shapes our inner consciousness.
Eventually, we will reach the understanding of our life’s source, the thought of creation, i.e., the Creator’s thought and intended purpose for us, and implement it. When we do, we will realize why everything has taken place in our lives the way that it has, and how it was exactly what was needed in order for us to rise to a new level of likeness with the Creator.
