The Desire To Give

549.01Question: There is an expression “the desire to give.” What is its root, its attribute, and its development?

Answer: The desire when I want to give is the desire to bestow. There is nothing other than the desire to bestow (the Creator) and the desire to receive (the created being).

The fact that we see concrete items and objects around us is an illusion, and all this actually does not exist. Initially, there was only one desire, the Creator, the desire to bestow, which later created a desire to receive. These two desires exist one opposite the other.

In order to give the desire to receive independence, it was created and developed with the intention for itself. To the extent that it feels the desire for its own sake, meaning the ego, it is separate from the Creator.

As one moves away from the Creator, the desire to receive at the same time feels that it is detached from something and wonders: “Why do I exist? What is happening to me? Who manages me?”

All these questions remain empty, unanswered, and then it starts looking: “Who created me, for what, and why? Gradually, it begins to act, to make progress in the search for its source, and eventually it finds the desire to bestow.

When one begins to understand that another desire exists around him, a desire for bestowal, but he exists inside himself and does not feel that he is in the desire to bestow, all kinds of conflicts and decisions take place in him. Then we can speak about a created being who wants to exit himself and be in contact with the Creator.

Question: Is the desire to give the initial, original desire given to a person who enters a group?

Answer: When the Creator pushes a person toward Him and wants to bring him closer to Him, He gives him such desires. He sort of lures a person, He flirts with him.

Connecting With Our Hearts

963.8Question: When we study The Preface to the Wisdom of Kabbalah (Pticha) should we be impressed by the material or rather work with it dryly?

Answer: You should be impressed by it and try to transform it into sensations. To feel it!

We are talking about connecting with each other and connecting with the Creator. And how can we connect? In what?

The only way to connect is with our hearts, and heart means sensations. The head, the mind, are necessary only in order to know how best to achieve unity. We use them as tools to achieve connection.

Listen, Read, And See

531.03Question: In Baal HaSulam’s book Shamati (“I Heard”) it is written that a person who is, as it were, in the sensation of hell, understands that the only thing that can get him out is the upper force, from which everything emanates. But for this must he feel this upper force because only then can he truly ask?

Answer: Of course. Until a person feels it, everything is pointless.

Therefore, Kabbalah does not require any preliminary conditions from us. Just listen, read, and see everything this science is talking about. It reveals the force that changes you in the same way a child changes in our world by acquiring new properties as he is growing up and becoming different every day.

An adult does not become different. He fills himself with all sorts of new impressions and delights. But a child is changing, gaining more and more.

This is the way Kabbalah, as it acts on us as adults, raises a new person in us. Therefore, we acquire new properties, a new mind, and feel new every day. This is a special property due to which we become “Adam“—equal, similar, to the Creator.

This will certainly happen. You just need to open the book and study systematically. There is every possibility for that on the Internet. I invite everyone. And people will see what changes take place in them literally from day to day or at least from week to week.

Kabbalah invites us to become as naive as children in order to get closer to the perception of the new reality that should be revealed for us. And if we behave this way, we will really become adults.

Opposite Elements Of Creation

546.02Question: According to Kabbalah, what is the main difference in the nature of male and female parts?

Answer: Absolutely everything. There is nothing more opposite in nature than a man and a woman. Moreover, this difference increases all the time; it first begins to manifest in inanimate objects, even in minerals, then in plants, even more in animals, and even more in humans.

That is, a developed man and woman, if they are really highly developed as personalities, represent the most opposite elements of creation. There can be nothing alike in them. Therefore, it is very difficult for them to come to some kind of agreement, they simply do not understand each other and cannot in any way get closer to be in likeness to each other.

Question: That is, all their attempts to understand each other’s view of the world, in principle, fail?

Answer: In the end, yes. We see that we are gradually entering a big crisis: children leave home, parents get divorced, they cannot bear each other, a person hates himself.

He not only cannot get along with the opposite sex, but he also has all sorts of abnormal drives and realization of sexual needs. In general, gender, marriage, family, and children, all this in our time is beginning to literally crumble and get out of control of previous laws and conditions.

Therefore, there is a Kabbalistic methodology that explains how we can really come to unity. It is a whole system of knowledge.
