The Path To Spiritual Birth

278.01When a person goes by faith above reason, it does not matter to him how much he knows, what he knows, and what he thinks and understands. He goes above his knowledge with closed eyes, without trying to learn anything.

Nevertheless, he has some of his own knowledge, understanding, sensations, and he does not cross it all out, he does not make himself a limited person, but tries to go above it. If in this way he tries to move in the property of bestowal, in the property of drawing closer to his friends, and in love, then these actions lead him to the state of Ibur, spiritual birth.

Therefore, Rabash writes: “When a person can go with his eyes shut,” that is, is not guided by his feelings and his mind in which he sees our world egoistically and nothing else, but wants to go “above reason,” that is, “and believe in the sages and go all the way” (faith is a property of bestowal), then by doing so he performs an action that is called Ibur. He brings himself into a state of surrender. And gradually the property of the spiritual germ manifests itself in it, it begins to develop.

“May only goodness and kindness pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for length of days” (Psalm 23).

Therefore, the most important thing is to not stop trying to imagine a world filled with the Creator, and to think of how we can approach Him according to our properties, actions, and  intentions, in order to begin to feel Him and ourselves in Him. This is called dwelling “in the house of the Lord for length of days.”
From the International Convention “Rising Above Ourselves” 1/8/22, “Going with Faith above Reason” Lesson 5
