In Resonance with the Higher Power

232.05Question: Why does Rabash write that “one who follows the path of the Creator creates the Creator?”

Answer: Indeed, it sounds very strange that а man creates the Creator. But in fact, it is so both in the internal and external sense.

There are 3,800 different religions and beliefs in this world and they were all invented by people who in their fantasies, in their imagination, created a deity on which they depend.

All kinds of foretellers of the future and astrologers still appear in newspapers, on the radio, and on television. Obviously, these people create their own Creator, their own God, each nation according to its character and with all sorts of attributes.

This happens externally as well as internally, that is, in the science of Kabbalah. Only in accordance with the vessel can the higher power that has no form or image be given shape. If the shape of my vessel is somewhat similar to the highest abstract power, then I feel in it that I have fulfilled the law of equivalence of qualities and feel the qualities and essence of the Creator.

It turns out that I am creating the Creator myself because I am building a vessel in which it is possible to feel the quality of the upper, the property of Zeir Anpin in Malchut, according to their similarity, mergence, and correspondence.

In other words, I create the Creator myself, but not in the way I want as in external religions where each nation has created its own image of God or turned some person into an idol.

We create this image against our nature, which means it can never just appear in our imagination or desire. And secondly, we strive for equivalence of form, and only after having reached a certain similarity can we feel that we have created the image of the Creator within ourselves. That is why we are called man, Adam, meaning similar (Domeh) to the Creator.

The Creator (Bore) means come (Bo) and see (Re), but you need to enter inside your desires, your feelings. The Creator does not exist outside of my desire. I feel and reveal Him according to my understanding, perception, and ability to imagine in the desire created by Him.

I cannot talk about Him but only about what I can grasp and attribute to Him. In this, there is a huge difference. I correct my vessel until it resonates with the upper force, and then I grasp something inside my qualities that I envision to be the Creator.

But this image exists only in relation to me.

Therefore, the Creator is called come and see: come, change yourself to such an extent that you will be able to see. But what do you see? Your own corrected qualities that are similar to Him.
