At The Intermediate Stage

559Women have achieved a lot in this world because they took upon themselves the functions of upbringing and education. They almost unnoticeably came to the forefront and, as they say, “spin the world.”

And men were originally created by nature in such a way that they must fulfill women’s desires. But when this goes to the detriment of correct interaction between men and women, the world takes the form that we see.

Comment: Today everything happens precisely in the opposite way. A woman makes  a career believing that she is bestowing more, and a man is kind of a receiving side.

My Response: Today we are at such an intermediate stage where we have not yet figured out who we are and what we are. We are moving from the old world to a new one and everything is changing very quickly.

At this stage, we must understand that we have wandered into a wrong place, destroyed natural animal foundations, broken away from them, and followed our egoism that guided us to the wrong place.

There are two properties in nature: bestowal and reception. We only chased reception and misused it. Our egoism, which is developing and pressing on us in every generation, has led us to a common global crisis.

This crisis includes education, upbringing, family, interactions between a man and a woman, between children, all our social relations: the state, the world, ecology, economy, science, culture, and so on.

It will simply not work, and we will have to solve this. And then it will lead us to understanding why all this has happened and what we should do next.

An Egoistic Attitude Toward The Creator Called The Mixed Multitude

534Question: Inside a man there are desires called “mixed multitude.” On the one hand, they fear the Creator, but on the other hand, at the same time they are workers of the Pharaoh. That is, a man uses the connection with the Creator for his own sake. This, as it is written in the sources, is the most insidious impure force (Klipa).

What does it mean that they fear the Creator? If the Creator is the property of bestowal, the power of emanation, the altruistic power of nature, how can one fear it?

Answer: The point is that we can use the connection with the Creator in two ways: egoistically and altruistically. That is, I may not relate to the Creator at all, but I can relate to Him with the understanding that I have a certain attitude toward Him and I want to deserve something from Him.

I want to reveal, to understand, to become aware of Him. I want to earn a connection with Him and get something from this connection. Thus, my attitude to the Creator is purely consumeristic: I demand from Him. And then my connections with the Creator represent a continuation of my egoistic inclinations in our world.

That is, I am already going further as it were, into the spiritual world, into my connection with the Creator, and demand that He reveal to me, reward me for my striving for Him, and so on.

Question: It turns out that, in principle, I fear the Creator. He is great in my eyes, but for my actions I demand payment from Him?

Answer: Yes, I demand either a reward in this world, or, as we die, then perhaps a reward in the future world. Such an egoistic attitude toward the Creator is called a “mixed multitude.”
