Comment: It is said that the Creator is good that does good. This is what Kabbalists have attained. They do not know who He is in relation to other created beings. His actions are determined in this way only in relation to us.
My Response: Kabbalists, who have already revealed the Creator, characterize Him as good that does good. But they are Kabbalists. There are people who begin to explore this, of course, and still do not feel anything; they gradually come to this state from the opposite side.
Comment: We can say that with regard to the ultimate purpose of bringing creation to the level of the Creator, He is good that does good. But there are different situations on the way.
My Response: Yes, there are different states on the way that are opposite and sometimes unpleasant. After all, creation must change in order to feel in its changes who the Creator is, on one hand, and on the other hand, to feel Him in all His changes and metamorphoses. So, all this is explored in Kabbalah and represents its main part.
Question: Can we say that the Creator is concealed and that is why we cannot feel Him as good that does good?
Answer: Yes. If we want to feel Him, no problem—change yourself from an evil being to a good one, and to the extent of similarity to the Creator when you become as good as He is, you will feel Him. Equivalence of form is the basic law of Kabbalah.
Comment: Of course, it is hard to justify all this when we look at the world.
My Response: It is impossible! You can justify it only to the extent that you acquire the quality of bestowal. Then in this form you will gradually see that the Creator is benevolent.
