The Commandment: “Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me”

239Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me: The meaning is that you will not have any other pointer in the world to direct you to the goal of your life, to the goal of creation. There will be no other quality before you except for the quality of bestowal and love, which is the symbol of the Creator whom you will worship.

What does worship mean? To see this as the highest value, the highest importance!

Comment: But life functions in such a way that I am, on the contrary, torn apart by a million desires, both mine and of others.

My Response: That is why you are commanded to make sure that all your desires and movements, in whatever direction, are tied to attaining the Creator. He must be your only goal in everything you do!

Question: What should I do for this?

Answer: First of all, you should want it to happen. And then see how you can arrange your life in such a way.

As a summary of your life, you must come to the conclusion that the Creator will be in front of you as your close partner, as a friend, as a ruler and ruled by you. You must enter into such a connection of mutual love, mutual adhesion, with Him, that there is none else besides Him. He will take over your entire world including your wife, your children, and your boss.

Comment: But we must get to this.

My Response: Of course. This is what life is given for!

Question: So what should I do?

Answer: You should realize the commandment “Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me.” In principle, it is realized in a group, through studying Kabbalah, when a person gradually begins to understand how to implement it. In general, the entire science of Kabbalah is intended for implementing this commandment.
