This law is called the body of the mind and its image, and is a part of the Creator. (Michael Laitman, “I Will Know the Creator from Within Myself,” a modification of Baal HaSulam’s “From My Flesh I Shall See God”)
Everything that we attain in spirituality is a part of the Creator, the power of bestowal and love, as well as the power of getting outside of ourselves. Therefore, we ourselves must be attuned only to bestowal, to love, and to interaction with others. To this extent, we will begin to feel the power of the Creator—the positive force that surrounds us.
Our world and any phenomenon inside it consist of a plus and a minus, of positive and negative manifestations. In our world, we are created within a negative, egoistic force. Everyone grabs everything for himself and cares whether the other person gets more than him; if so he feels bad. This is our clear correlation with all objects in our world.
The spiritual world is built on the opposite property, bestowal, where any spiritual property is evaluated precisely in the measure of giving out of oneself, emanation.
Therefore, these two worlds are opposite; they do not communicate with each other and there is no connection between them.
The connection is manifested only in a person who, being between both worlds, can collect the plus and the minus in himself, meaning, his negative egoistic and positive spiritual altruistic properties. And he himself is a “load,” “resistance,” to which the plus and the minus are connected. In this case, he connects the lower world with the upper world and the Creator with all other earthly beings and with earthly nature.
It all depends on how we perceive the positive properties of the upper world and the negative properties of our world and create a contact between them.
