The mind is defined by the person’s sensation in the analysis of “truth and falsehood.” (Michael Laitman, “I Will Know the Creator from Within Myself,” a modification of Baal HaSulam’s “From My Flesh I Shall See God”)
The most important thing is to constantly analyze the states we go through from the point of view of truth and lies. Lies mean egoistic sensations and measurements and truth means altruistic ones that go beyond the interests of our body that we can feel and measure independent of ourselves in their true form.
Therefore, altruistic sensations are true and egoistic ones are purely subjective and by no means true. They depend on how people who believe that they are right are able to convince others.
This is the Creator’s part given from above. Our attempts to bestow from ourselves and to develop such properties in ourselves create the sensation of the Creator.
It has nothing to do with imagination and is exclusively determined by sensations. That is, spirituality is felt in desires and by no means in the mind.
This is very interesting, but in order to become a Kabbalist and, in general, a spiritual person, one does not need to be clever. This requires no reason, but only the development of feelings. But it takes a lot of intelligence to develop these feelings.
