Benefit of Klipa

627.1Question: What is the “greatness of the Creator“? What does “His greatness is concealed from me” mean?

Answer: This means that you do not feel Him, do not see Him, do not understand Him, and cannot influence Him in any way. Accordingly, He seemingly does not influence you.

Question: Does it mean that a Klipa protects us from the light of the Creator?

Answer: Yes, it protects us from coming closer to the Creator. If not for this, we could hurt ourselves a lot. It is similar to how we are afraid to leave a child alone with some kind of devices or circumstances that could harm him.

Question: We are studying that the Creator is the power of love, bestowal and unity. If the force of love is revealed to me, how can I use it to my own detriment?

Answer: Of course you can. You will want more from Him than you can use correctly. Then you will have to be limited.

Question: Does it mean that the Creator’s love for the created beings can be used to one’s own detriment?

Answer: Of course. Big time! This is a terrible force! Therefore, there is a Klipa that does not allow you to do this. It conceals this possibility.

Time Is a Change of States

537Question: In The Study of the Ten Sefirot, it is said that at the beginning of creation in the upper light there was neither beginning nor end. How can we understand this?

Answer: There was no time; that is, nothing was changing.

In order for time to appear, it is necessary for the desire to feel itself in some state and these states would begin to change and give the desire its qualities. Then the desire will begin to separate one state from another, and a feeling of change from the first state to the second, and to the third will appear in it. This is what characterizes time.

If there were no changes, we would not feel time. That is, it is a subjective feeling of each of us.

In principle, time is a change of states. Therefore, there is no time in spirituality; there is only a change of states.

In our world, we feel time because our body is constantly moving somewhere both internally and externally. It is being influenced and it is influencing. We feel all these changes as the framework of time in which we exist.

In other words, in spirituality, if I do not do some actions myself, consciously, then my states do not change, and therefore there is no time.

In our corporeal world, it doesn’t matter whether I do something or not; changes still occur instinctively and unconsciously, i.e., they are embedded automatically. This is why there is a sense of time in our body.

Place and Content

232.04It is difficult for beginners, for they perceive matters by means of corporeal boundaries of time, space, change and exchange. However, the authors only used those as signs to point to their upper roots ( Baal Hasulam, The Study of the Ten Sefirot, Vol.1, Part 1, Chap.1).

Here it is necessary to clarify that we are not talking about a material place and its content, as in our world, although we will still imagine this way because we can’t get away from our usual stereotypes.

But at the very least, we need to step back a little from what we have in our minds and think about what place means.

A place is a desire created and filled with some kind of filler. This means that what desire wants is what it is filled with. Only these two substances exist in the universe. Desire is called a place, and filling is called filling or light.

What Can You Do If the Heart Resists?

962.3Comment: A friend writes: “I have been with you for two years, and I can no longer listen or hear about the correction of the heart. I don’t understand what it is.” In general, many people write asking for specifics. That is, they understand the specific programs of politicians; they understand economists who create certain precise economic programs that work, but they do not understand what “correcting the heart” means or that it is most important.

You talk about it all the time. Yet, it still does not penetrate the heart and they still want some material specifics.

My Response: It cannot penetrate the heart because of its opponent: the heart itself! You need to act against the heart in such a way as to attract some outer cosmic forces that would change our hearts, turning them toward each other.

Question: So only the heart that is closed can hear about the correction of the heart, but it does not want this correction. How can you make even a little opening in this heart to enter it? How is this done?

Answer: I think after all, the solution lies in our dissemination, in our explanation, and in the implementation of our methodology.

Question: Even if it is not accepted and if the heart doesn’t want to absorb it?

Answer: It doesn’t matter. We have to come to this.

Question: First of all, should the heart or the mind accept it? Should we explain this to people logically? Using regular, human, earthly logic?

Answer: We can explain this through logic, but we are faced with people who say, “You are such dreamers.” Well, they’re right. But what else can we do?

Comment: So, it’s not easy to ignite them. Although it is written that everyone, one way or another, will come to the correction of the heart.

My Response: We have to wait for the right moment; for the critical moment when people realize that they are simply moving toward self-destruction.

Question: What kind of thought and strength do you put into your constant words about correction of the heart?

Answer: It is an upper force, above the nature of this world, which can act through the egoistic nature of our world and make our hearts altruistic.

Question: When you say the “heart,” what are you thinking about at this moment?

Answer: The inner desire of a person is the heart. Today it is directed only at itself. While the corrected heart is directed toward connection with others. That’s all, irrespective of any other conditions.

Question: Is it only the upper force, the upper energy, that can turn us toward each other and not ourselves through our programs and cooperation?

Answer: We can only bring humanity a little closer to this by preparing manuals and other things.

Question: That is in regard to us. But humanity also talks about unification all the time. There are organizations that are supposed to unite. They also somehow implicitly understand this to be good.

Answer: Ok, let them do it, but it won’t lead to anything. There must be an appeal from a person out of this critical state to the upper force: “Come and do it!”
