“And You Shall Love The Lord”

235Question: Baal HaSulam wrote an article “Love for the Creator and Love for the Created Beings,” which describes various spiritual states. What is love for the Creator? Can this be called a state?

Answer: Anything a person experiences is called his state.

To love the Creator means to wish Him the very best with all your strength, as it is written: “And you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your means.”

The Creator is the source of life that holds the entire creation within Himself. In principle, the universe consists of only two parts: the Creator and everything created by Him, called creation. And we must bring the entire creation to a state of complete merging with the Creator.

Loving Him means loving Him as the source of life, reaching a state where everything that you feel, you receive through your feeling of love for Him.
