Male And Female, Part 3

laitman_746.01Where Did Male and Female Parts Come From?

Question: All of creation is a desire to enjoy. The desire to enjoy for my own sake is called female part and for the sake of the Creator the male part. What does this mean?

Answer: The female and male parts were not initially manifested in the created being because the created being had to develop.

This is similar to how our universe was created from the smallest particle of energy but energy of the highest class, the highest level. There was enough of it to create everything there is in our space, which we still do not know about yet. It is billions of times bigger than what we might imagine today, with everything that fills it.

It was all born from a small particle of energy that broke through the upper degree to our degree.

This particle included everything in itself: all kinds of positive and negative qualities that later expanded, developed, and become opposite to each other. Yet, all of them came from one point in which these qualities were in a potential state with no difference between them.

Therefore, if we are talking about a man and a woman, then their prototype is such a point, such an image called Adam in whom there were practically neither male nor female parts. They existed in potential and gradually developed from this object.

In our world, this was manifested as a gradual development of the matter of creation: inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature and man.

As it is described in Kabbalah, this occurred through intermediary stages from inanimate to vegetative, from vegetative to animate, and from animate to human, who developed from an ape.

laitman_548.02Who Is Adam?

Question: In the beginning, the Creator created a single created being. This created being or program is called “a single desire—Adam HaRishon.” Does it also consist of female and male parts?

Answer: Yes, both parts simultaneously complete each other and are interconnected.

Question: Allegorically, they say that first only the male part was created, Adam, and that the woman was later created from his rib. How do you explain this?

Answer: It is very simple. The Creator is the quality of bestowal. We cannot determine what in fact it really is because it is outside of us. When it is already within us, it is defined as a combination of male and female properties.

Question: What is this created being “Adam“?

Answer: Adam is the ten Sefirot of the desire to receive, with a natural, instinctive intention to bestow. In such a form, he can be called an angel. That is, he is an absolutely ideal quality: very small, in a zero state, which has neither reception nor bestowal.

It is very difficult to decipher this whole story but it is possible. In The Book of Zohar and other Kabbalistic books, it is explained that this is about mutually complementing each other in the receiving and bestowing part when they are practically reduced to zero.

Therefore, Adam, as we call this system, is not a person, not a created being, but a quality which, relatively speaking, includes in himself the positive and negative forces that are interconnected and mutually complement each other. They exist in potential. This power device is called Adam.

Question: We were studying the four phases of direct light. At which phase was Adam created? Does this have something to do with the four phases?

Answer: No. First came the development of the four phases of direct light (Dalet Behinot de Ohr Yashar), then the creation of the worlds: Adam Kadmon, Atzilut, Beria, Yetzira, and Assiya. And only then did the conditions arise for creating the system called Adam.

The Duty Of All Souls

laitman_222Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to From the Mouth of a Sage”: It is known from books and from authors that the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah is an absolute must for any person from Israel. If one studies the entire Torah and knows the Mishnah and the Gemara by heart, if one is also filled with virtues and good deeds more than all his contemporaries, but has not learned the wisdom of Kabbalah, he must incarnate once more into this world to study the secrets of Torah and wisdom of truth. …

This is the reason why we reincarnate, generation-by-generation through our current generation, which is the residue of the souls upon which the intention of Creation has not been completed, as they did not attain the secrets of the Torah in the past generations.

Baal HaSulam writes that we have to reveal the wisdom of Kabbalah so that all souls (and each of us is the carrier of a piece of the common soul) could connect together into one common soul called “Adam” and achieve the state of complete similarity to the Creator, that is, to rise to the level of absolute knowledge, immortality, and perfection.

Question: Can we imagine from the Kabbalistic point of view that creation is a huge will to receive, which, as it is constantly developing, undergoes all kinds of metamorphoses along the historical axis, and each person is an individual will to receive?

Answer: Yes. These desires, interacting with each other as in a kaleidoscope, constantly clarify various sides of the Creator and gradually connect with each other.

Question: Does it mean that these are the same souls?

Answer: Yes. The same souls descend to the world, only on different levels and in different combinations with each other.

Will We See A New World?

Laitman_632.1Question: How much time is left before the creation of the ideal world? Will we make it in this time or is it only the prerogative of our children?

Answer: No. It is you who will see the new world as soon as you create it from the fragmented pieces of the system called Adam, or creation, or the common soul.

It has been broken into 600,000 pieces. We have to connect these parts again into one system and then it will be called Adam, which means “similar to the Creator.”

This is when the so-called adhesion will occur, the dynamic balance between the creation and the Creator.

Bring Light To The World

laitman_938.04Rabash, “What Is the Degree One Should Achieve in Order Not to Have to Reincarnate?”: The thing is that we have to know that all of the souls extend from the soul of Adam HaRishon. He is called Adam HaRishon, which means the first man. A man is called the collection of all egoistic qualities into a single altruistic one. After Adam sinned, that is, fell from the quality of bestowal and love into the quality of reception, his soul, his structure, his desire was divided.

There are no bodies, there are only desires. Therefore, his desire, which was one big common light, shattered into a large number of small desires, each of which contains a microdose of light. We have to connect these microdoses together by directing our desires to one big, common desire.

This is our work of correction. At that, it is not only in collecting the particles into which the light shattered, but also in connecting them into a big force. Therefore, our work is divided into a great number of parts of the broken Kli (vessel) of Adam and into the sequence in which we assemble this single common desire called “Adam.”

This work takes a lot of time because we cannot do it in one single effort. Therefore, we should understand that each of us requires an environment in order to advance.

In principle, in all cases in life, I can solve most of my problems only with the help of the environment. I am already beginning to understand the condition that the shattering of the Kli dictates me to constantly be with my own kind who are yearning for connection. Then we can influence each other, act, and help each other both physically and internally.

Our desires, the lights that fill us, although they are still minuscule, nevertheless, their microdoses influence each other and thus, we can support and help each other. Our advancement is in this.

This is why connection is of utmost importance. Trying all the time to see in others an example of what else I can do, what else I can learn from everyone, from anyone, in any way—from their longings and their actions for connection. This is considered as one person helping another.

When we gather, we can learn both virtually and physically, but nothing can replace such a big gathering as a convention because only in such massive gatherings can people influence each other.

They should help each other, demonstrate how much they yearn for connection. There is no need to demonstrate familiarity, hugs, slaps, and pats. We must try to convey to each other the yearning of our hearts. That is primary. Together we should try to convince the Creator that we are already worthy for Him to unite us.

Such a persistent request from each heart to other hearts and through their connection to the Creator is most important. We will then begin to feel that we really are in the great upper light.

This can only be achieved at large conventions. Of course, you can come to this in a group, and in small meetings, but when such a mass of people come, already familiar with each other, it is really a great force. There is nothing like it in the world. Moreover, the world is waiting, subconsciously, unconsciously, but it is waiting for us to bring light to it, to bring the upper force closer.

Collect The Parts Of The Common Soul

laitman_947Baal HaSulam, Letter 4: You lack nothing except to go out to a field that the Lord has blessed, and collect all those flaccid organs that have drooped from your soul, and join them into a single body.

“A field that the Lord has blessed” is the state between us. It is a wild field that a person gradually cultivates, sows, and harvests.

The most difficult thing is to convince ourselves that we must collect all the flaccid organs of the common soul and connect them into a single body. We are prepared to study Kabbalah, all kinds of wisdoms, ask tricky questions, and supposedly develop our brain. We are even prepared to feel not just others’ but our personal experiences, and all this is absolutely not what we need.

We need to think only about how to connect to the Creator with our inner desires. Each of us has such a desire, the Creator gave it to us in advance, and this is a great gift. However, connecting all the aspirations together is what we need to do.

How can we convince ourselves that we need to connect with the friends only with our desires directed to the Creator, mine, yours, his, and everyone else’s? Everything else, we do not take into account, everything else is a beast.

How can we connect all these desires, aspirations, and intentions into one common desire? Disappointments, let them be our common disappointments, aspirations, our common aspirations, and all this we need to direct to the Creator. That is, we are working with Him: this is what we can and this not, we request, get disappointed, cry and something else all in relation to this.

This is called “to collect all those flaccid organs that have drooped from your soul and join them into a single body.” These attempts already attract the influence of the upper light on them and then the connection will happen.

What Is The Spirit Of The Body?

Laitman_168Question: What is the spirit of the body that brings us into interaction with each other?

Answer: This is a common force that binds everyone together and provides us with eternal existence. We must leave individual existence from the sensation of our personal life, which ends with the death of the body, to the existence of our common life, which we will begin to feel as circulating between us.

For example, in the human body, millions of cells die during a day, and others are born instead. The same way as one cell dies in the body, when we die, we become like this cell in the common body of humanity, which dies and disappears from the body.

In order not to disappear without a trace along with the death of our animal body, we need to connect with the life of a common body, which means to strive through our connection between us to the Creator. This is what the science of Kabbalah does.

Why Are We Meeting Here And Now?

laitman_601.02Question: Are we listening to you because we are meant to be in the science of Kabbalah?

Answer: We are meeting here and now because we are all parts of the same soul. And not only one soul but one organ of the soul. Otherwise, we would be in different generations, in different places on the globe, etc.

So, there is certainly a connection between us because we belong to one organ of the soul.

Add To The Integral

laitman_962.8Every particular exists only in order to point to the whole. Therefore, there is no need to delve into details, there is nothing significant in them. Every individual is required only in order to connect with the whole or to get out of it and thus teach us to perceive the common whole.

Through our actions, we discover the network of connections between us. Connecting them together, these actions are revealed as a system called Adam, the common soul. Adam HaRishon is a structure of connections between all of us. It is as if I look at a map and see a portrayal of roads connecting the cities. The same connection exists between all of us; it is not only three-dimensional but rather has an infinite number of dimensions.

This network of connections is called man, Adam. The more connections the individual points that are detached from each other can establish between them, the more roads they can pave, the more they build the common connecting system, which is called Adam. Therefore, they are also considered people, because Adam is the result of their efforts.1

The Creator deliberately broke the integral picture of the world and made it discrete so that we, by ourselves, through individual, discrete actions, would reach a common, complete form. We are incapable of such a generalization, but each of our individual actions, despite its limitations, brings us closer to the complete picture.

It is like calculating an integral, where the margin of error is added to the sum of rectangles. This addition completes those unaccounted angles, which we were unable to cover with our discrete shattering. This is called: “The Creator will finish this work for me.”

We add one small rectangle after another to the best of our ability. But how can all these rectangles be made into a smooth curve, how can we measure the entire area if we do not have the possibility of reaching the real integral picture through our “square” thinking? We can only increase the number of rectangles. Therefore, there is an addition to the integral that the Creator adds for us. He helps us perform all the actions, but then He still has to complete this work for us, adding what is missing, which we ourselves are unable to take into account.2

If the Creator is revealed within the desire of the ten, then how can we increase this desire, the area of the revelation of the Creator? The desire of the ten can be increased only through connection with each other. This entire area is divided into pixels that we cannot change, make larger or smaller. We can only increase the number of these pixels and thereby make the picture clearer. This is how it works, like a computer that detects only zero or one. Yet, through the large number of zeros and ones, all the operations are performed.3

After the convention in Moldova, the structure of the entire World Kli has changed. Because of the strong connection we reached there, we have jumped to the next degree. Now we need to build a new Kli. Now during every communication, we must take into account that we are connecting with the common Kli, with a certain area of the common soul.

For example, I connect with the Moscow group and understand that this is a part of the common soul. The sensation of this common Kli exists within me all the time. From now on, any connection in the ten is already a connection with the entire world Kli, as with the single whole. I feel that by connecting with friends in Europe, I influence my connection with friends in South America.

We are constantly adding pixels to the general picture and receiving new inner sensations. Due to the birth of these new sensations in us, the picture is constantly expanding. Every pixel is a connection within the world Kli due to which the form of the larger vessel called a man, Adam, begins to appear more and more.4

Enter The Sensation Of The Common Soul

laitman_944

This means that every person from Israel is guaranteed to finally attain all the wonderful attainments that the Creator had contemplated in the Thought of Creation to delight every creature. And one who has not been awarded in this life will be granted in the next life, etc., until one is awarded completing His Thought, which He had planned for him.

And while one has not attained perfection, the Lights that are destined to reach him are considered Surrounding Lights. That means that they stand ready for him, but are waiting for him to purify his vessels of reception, at which time these Lights will clothe the able vessels. (Baal HaSulam, “Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot”).

A person should try to develop the quality of bestowal, the quality of connection between the shattered parts of the common creation, of the common soul, to connect them together, and to participate in this as much as possible. This is the implementation of the condition of “love your neighbor as yourself.”

To the extent that he approaches or even implements the condition of “love your neighbor,” the inner energy shines upon him, the so-called love, the connection between the broken parts.

It attracts these parts to each other and helps them form one single whole, one soul, already on a new level because egoism has entered between them with its minus and the plus became higher than the minus; that is, it grew due to minus.

Therefore, a person receives a huge new soul, the quality of bestowal, the quality of attainment called the upper world.

Question: While in the biological body, a person, as if, enters the sensation of this common soul. Will one continue to live in it once the body dies?

Answer: One has nothing to do with the other. Our animal body is necessary in order to begin to enter this soul, to feel it and to begin building it.

Question: Does it mean that through our bodies, we, as if, establish the first contact with other people, and then this all happens on the sensory level?

Answer: Yes, and completely outside of the bodies.
