As If We Are Already In The Spiritual World

938.01Question: How can we aim our minds and hearts to go above reason and represent the qualities of the Creator?

Answer: Aim yourself to be in connection with your ten. Make it so that such relationships are formed between you that you will make one common whole.

It seems not to be possible. But if you understand that you must rise above egoism in a rational, systematic way, then you will be able to create such conditions. Do this and you will all of a sudden feel that the Creator lives in you. He reveals Himself to you.

Question: Does above reason mean above my desires and my feelings? What should the action above reason be if we still have not developed new feelings?

Answer: We should act in such a way as if we are already in the spiritual world, in the quality of bestowal and love, and from this state we move forward.

Our imagination is our desire, our pressure, when we try to do things together. This is what creates the prerequisites for the upper light to influence us and to build us in such a way.

On Any Occasion—Turn To The Creator

562.02Baal HaSulam, Shamati 13, “A Pomegranate”: It means that these thoughts of emptiness come to a person in order for one to have a need to take upon himself faith above reason. And for that we need the help of God. It follows that at that time one must ask of the Creator to give him the power to believe above reason.

One must turn to the Creator for everything. We must reach faith above reason; ask Him to explain what this is, to show it, to give it to us! And then everything will be fine.

You do not have to decide anything yourself. Ask all the time. Be a real “nagger.”

To take alien thoughts and raise them in faith above reason means that we must raise all disturbances that emerge in us and treat them as egoistic disturbances. As much as they are against us, we must rise above them.

Question: What does achieving faith above reason depend on?

Answer: Only on our perseverance and correct direction. It is necessary to create such a Kli (vessel), a state of connection between us, that will reveal the Creator.

How Can We Sort Desires?

567.04Question: How can I learn to correctly sort desires that I cannot work with yet, desires that need to be restricted, and desires that need to be properly shaped and cultivated?

Answer: You cannot do anything with your desires because you do not know how to implement them correctly yet. You do not know which of them are bad, which are good, and how to work with them. Therefore, you are not given the opportunity to do anything with them and somehow manipulate them. And rightly so, you would only harm yourself.

Therefore, we need to try, in spite of everything, to get closer, then the desires will gradually be corrected, and in their gradual correction we will see how to act. We will learn this.

Strengthen In The Greatness Of The Creator

528.01Rabash, “The Agenda of the Assembly – 2”: This means that if two friends sit together and contemplate how to enhance the importance of the Creator, they already have the strength to receive enhancement of the greatness of the Creator in the form of awakening from below.

It is enough for us to simply sit together and think about how to raise the importance of the Creator in our own eyes, and by this we become strengthened by His greatness. We should think more about how important the Creator can be in our eyes. Accordingly, we will be able to move forward.

In the group, you can talk about everything but in such a way that at the beginning and at the end of the conversation we connect with the Creator and with the goal.

We should start the discussion with the fact that this will lead us to the goal, guide us, and bring us closer to it. And we should end with the fact that we check how much what we have just discussed has brought us closer to the goal.

Only this is taken into account, and we should pursue only this.

Only to the extent that I can feel the greatness of the goal in my friends will I be able to get closer to it. I can cultivate, develop, and draw it in myself as much as I like, but this will not help. I should affect the group, and the group should affect me.

To this extent, I will be excited by the greatness of the goal possibly to the point that it will begin to be revealed to me.
