Does The Creator Have An Image?

251Question: I don’t understand your interpretation of the Creator. You call Him nature. Doesn’t this term contradict what the Torah refers to? After all, the Torah reveals the Creator’s nature as a personality, as an image.

Answer: Not at all. If you see things this way you will reach idolatry.

The Creator has no image. It is the power of love and bestowal, which fills all of creation. Above that there is the power called Atzmuto, which symbolizes the fact that it is above any connection to the created beings and so we cannot call it by any name.

All the adjectives that refer to Him, (terrible, awful, etc.) all stem from our perception, just as a small child calls his father or mother bad, but they actually show their attitude toward him this way in order to invoke the right reactions and actions in him by that, and this is how they try to stabilize him. But the parents actually don’t have any such attributes.

Question: What does it mean when we say that the Creator is nature?

Answer: Nature is everything we are in. One of the Creator’s names is God. In numerology the word “God” equals the word “nature.” There are many references to this in Kabbalah books.
