The Path To Perfection: The Individual And Humanity
Question: Why can a single individual attain a perfect state before all of humanity, but at the same time still depend on humanity for attaining perfection?
Answer: The point is that you can attain perfection only when you tie yourself to all of humanity because you must do it in order to bestow. This means that you want to work with the intention to bestow only for the sake of humanity. You cannot bestow to the Creator, there is nothing you can bestow to Him.
If you want to please a woman, for example, treat her child nicely. You do not need to do anything else. It is the same with the Creator. This means that if a person wants to get close to the Creator, there is no other way to do it than by getting closer to all of humanity. By doing so he brings the Creator closer to them and thus he himself gets closer to Him.
Question: What does the quality of one’s life depend on?
Answer: On the number of people, I have brought closer to the Creator. It is to this degree that I have gotten closer to Him. This determines my quality of life.
