What Are Upper Forces?

562.02Question: What are upper forces? Are they angels, gods, or souls?

Answer: Kabbalah does not agree with anything that you can invent and deduce on your own. It rejects all this and claims there is no such thing!

There is a world consisting of two forces: positive and negative, egoistic and altruistic. On the corporeal level these forces are opposite: plus-minus, attraction-repulsion, cold-hot, etc.

On the human level, they are expressed by attraction and love, or by rejection and hatred. The entire structure of creation consists of these two forces all the way from the world of infinity to our world. Only they exist.

The positive force, the force of attraction, filling, and bestowal, is called the power of the Creator and emanates from Him.

The negative force appears in the world of infinity next to the positive force and emanates from its opposite. And these two forces shape the entire universe from top to bottom, all five worlds down to our world. And we, being at the end, in the lowest place, must take the negative force and transform it so that it will be similar to the positive force. That is our mission.
