The Thought of the Creator

610.2The thought of creation was to delight the created beings in accord with His abundant generosity. For this reason, a great desire and craving to receive His abundance was imprinted in the souls.

This is so because the will to receive is the vessel for the measure of pleasure in the abundance (Baal HaSulam, “Preface to the Wisdom of Kabbalah”).

Question: It turns out that initially the Creator created us in such a way that we want to receive pleasure from the connection with Him, and this depends on the measure of our desire. What does it mean to receive pleasure from the connection with the Creator?

Answer: This phenomenon also exists in our lives. We do not need to go into some cosmic space or dive into spiritual levels. In accordance with his desire, a person can feel something that he wants, and he can even measure, weigh, and tell himself and others about it. Therefore, desire is a necessary condition for a person to feel something.

Since the Creator wants to delight the created beings, He created a desire to receive pleasure from Him in them. Thus, there is the Creator who radiates pleasure, and there are created beings who receive this pleasure, and they should feel that they receive it from the Creator. It all depends on us.

Nevertheless, there are conditions under which we can feel the pleasure emanating from the Creator, be filled with it, weigh it, define it, and even talk about it.
