To Accept Without Any Conditions

963.1Let me be in a state in which I do not understand and am unable to connect the thoughts and feelings I am experiencing as a result of it, I am like a shattered vessel that was broken into separate shards, despite this, I perceive this state—these thoughts and desires, and my existence in this reality—as received from the Creator. This is why I have to feel myself as perfect.

The Creator gives me a state that in my opinion is the worst state possible, and I cannot do anything with it. I have neither reason nor feelings for it, but I accept it without any conditions only because it comes from the Creator. Therefore I consider this state to be perfect and as belonging to a higher degree in relation to what I am able to perceive in my Kelim (vessels).

Then I ascend to this upper degree, the degree of bestowal, Bina, which is the degree of faith above reason.

In my opinion, this is a complete shattering because I do not understand anything and cannot connect one with the other. But if I believe that this state comes to me from the Creator, the only and perfect force, the good that does good, then I establish myself with regard to this absolute and increasingly expose myself to the influence of the upper light, to the influence of Bina.

Gradually I begin to understand and feel why the Creator arranged this work for me so I can rise from the will to receive, from all the problems I have, to the will to bestow, from this world to the upper, spiritual world. This is how I rise to the next degree and how I advance toward the state of faith. Even though I do not feel it in my Kelim yet, I am already making room for this concept.

All this is because I do not forget the simple truth: everything I receive now comes to me from the Creator, both the sensation of this world and the sensation of the will to bestow.
