Until We Reveal The Creator

509Question: Can we say that the Creator or nature wants to teach us something through negative experiences?

Answer: That is right. It is through negative experiences that we must bring the idea and attainment of an absolutely eternal, upper, pure mind into this world.

Therefore, the entire experience of a person, from creating statues and worshiping various gods, to scientific research leading him to the conclusion that only he rules the whole world, can be called idolatry.

This goes on until he realizes that there is only one single force. We all commit idol worship until we reveal the Creator.

Question: So if I believe that some nation started a war against another nation or if someone has done something against me, and I do not feel a single force behind it, then is this attitude called idolatry?

Answer: Yes, you believe that it was done by someone other than the Creator. This is already idolatry.

Presence Of The Creator

129Question: Is the correct realization of the interaction of male and female parts the revelation of the thought of creation? Do they reveal this thought by connecting with each other?

Answer: Not by just connecting. After all, if the male and female parts in each of us and between us are connected correctly, then the Creator is revealed between them. It is written: “Husband and wife, the Creator between them.” Otherwise, it is impossible to invoke the presence of the Creator.

There is a female and a male part in each of us, and a person can even reach the revelation of the Creator alone, without the physical female part. However, he must develop these two opposite parts in himself. This is what the wisdom of Kabbalah says.

This power within which we exist reveals the Creator to a person, how it works around us and together with us to bring us closer to attaining it.

Are We Going To Start From Cain Again?

220People will someday become brothers, and they will start again with Cain and Abel (Stanisław Jerzy Lec).

I do not think that this is going to happen. According to calculations of Kabbalists, we are already living in the last generation. In fact, we will not have to go down that road again.

It will all be taken into account and will be in our genes so much that we will not have to go through it. It will all be inside of us, and we will already be clever.

Comment: But you said that history does not teach us much.

My Response: By itself, it does not teach us, but it will already be in our genes, Reshimo.

Question: Does it mean that we will not come back to this first fratricide?

Answer: No. We will not be going through this entire story again at all.

We still have a lot of work ahead of us. We need to enter a world in which we must correctly use the quality of bestowal, the quality of reception, and begin to work with them correctly. There are still a lot of wars and contradictions, decisions, challenges, searches, and so on. We need all of it.

Question: Will these be internal wars?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Will the external wars turn into internal ones?

Answer: Of course. This is something that even today people in the world have to figure out and start implementing! We have already been through all these barbarities.

Question: So, will all these external wars end by the fact that they move inside?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Do you see that this is how the next generation will be?

Answer: I see it, it is already starting to come through.

I think that people will learn from this example given to us now with the Russian-Ukrainian war. They will learn. They will see all this senselessness and that in such circumstances it is impossible to do anything else. Two such close, fraternal nations, and look what is happening. This should teach everyone.

The Creator Is The Upper Quality Of Nature

610.1Question: You wrote once that the depiction of the Creator in any image except as the quality of bestowal and love is idolatry. What does it mean?

Answer: The Creator is a quality, a force, an idea. This special quality of nature is the highest, the most general. It includes everything.

If I imagine Him in something materialized, corporeal, then this is already idolatry. I narrow His image down to some other, clear, one might even say, egoistic embodiment.

Question: So it is not enough just to believe that there is some kind of a single force and that it stands behind everything and manages everything?

Answer: It is also possible. But this, of course, is not perfect.
