A Speck of Spiritual Pleasure

232.07Question: Kabbalistic sources say that if we sum up the pleasure of all people throughout the history of human existence, then one gram of spiritual pleasure will be much greater than the pleasure of all people ever existed on Earth. How can this be?

Answer: The fact is that a single contact with the Creator covers all other types of study, it includes absolutely everything that a person could ever have felt.

Question: If so, then everyone should be eager to reveal the Creator now?

Answer: No, no one has such a desire. We desire what supposedly exists close to us and attracts us. While this does not seem to exist for us nor attract us.

Question: Why is the Creator Himself not interested in our revealing Him? Why doesn’t He stir this desire in us?

Answer: He does stir it, but gradually in order to preserve our freedom of will.

Question: Does one who reveals the Creator constantly experiencing such pleasure?

Answer: Of course. It is the highest form of pleasure that completely fills a person. And then a new desire is revealed, an empty one. So a person strives to fill it too. Thus one advances from a small pleasure to a greater and greater one in the way of revealing emptiness within himself.

If you take the pleasure of all ants and compare it to a human pleasure, then one second of human-level pleasure when you love someone, let’s say a child, is much greater in quality than all the ants’ combined. It is the same with the Creator.
