If We Want to Live like Humans

962.3In order to reach adhesion with the Creator, we need a strong desire, which we do not have. Desires are revealed from the entirety of the shattered souls, and therefore, they cannot be strong because everything is fractured. Therefore, some small particle from the common soul awakens here and there thanks to which a person awakens.

This general awakening is caused by the surrounding light that is waiting for us to create a place for it where it can really be revealed. Due to this surrounding light, we find ourselves connected to each other and receive the opportunity to gather into a group and study Kabbalah. All this is in order to increase our desires.

After all, our desires are very small and they are also not directed correctly. We do not know where we exist and for what purpose. It is like a small child who does not know where he is, hut has parents who know exactly what is happening to him and what needs to be done with him, and how to take care of him so that he grows up healthy.

Therefore, if we want to grow spiritually, we are brought to a group and taken through all kinds of states. By establishing correct relationships in the group, we aim ourselves in the right direction and thus advance.

Besides, we are at such an advanced stage of development that it ceases to be individual. That is, we are entering the era of what is called the last generation when all of humanity has to awaken. Today, an awakening of a small group or individual Kabbalists is no longer enough like it was in previous generations.

We must understand that we all belong to the same desire of Adam HaRishon, and we need to come closer and to become incorporated in it. Then we will see that the Creator helps us in more tangible way.

It is not by chance that such great hatred is being revealed in the world today, and it is flaring up more and more day by day. It would seem that this is absolutely not compatible with the high level of development of humanity, which should have already stopped all wars and be concerned with more exalted things.

But it will turn out the opposite. We will forget about space flights and high matters. If we do not start working on our connection, we will feel how humanity is sinking lower and lower every day and being immersed in sordid affairs. After all, the main thing we need to do is to connect everyone to the system of Adam HaRishon. If humanity learns about this method and understands why they were mistaken and were getting into difficult situations all the time, then they will come closer to correction in this way.

It is amazing that the further humanity advances in engineering, high tech, science, culture, and education, making such progress as if it can already reach the stars, at the same time, our life on planet Earth will become more and more miserable, appalling, and gloomy. We will look like bugs crawling in manure.

After all, if we do not advance toward connection, then all our other achievements will turn to our detriment and beat us. They will not allow us to develop correctly, and our life will be getting worse and worse.

However, the correction of egoism is impossible by simply overcoming it. We must connect above our egoism. That is, it is already useless today to fight against our egoism, like in previous generations when each person was developing individually.

In our time, there is only one way to defeat egoism: together, collectively. This field of connection, love, mutual care, and guarantee that we establish between us should save us and bring us to a new state. Otherwise, we will not succeed.

From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 6/24/22, Shamati #153 “A Thought Is a Result of the Desire”

The Hidden Potential of Man

275In each of us, in a hidden form, are all the desires that will manifest themselves on the path of personal development from this moment to the very end of correction. The question is how to reveal and realize them in practice to accelerate one’s development.

Each person is like a baby in whom vast forces of growth are hidden. Our task is to reveal these forces and internal reserves through studying Kabbalah, joining in a group and prayer, and making every effort to transfer these forces from potential to action, from concealment to revelation.

The most effective way to do this is to work in a group because it is precisely there that these hidden forces arise. At first we all existed as one systemAdam haRishon. But it was shattered and then everyone lost the entire vast arsenal of powers, properties, knowledge, and sensations belonging to the complete system of the common soul.

And now everyone is left to exist as one small separate cell of the body in which he feels only his own temporary life as separate from others. This kind of existence is called a man of this world.

However, such a life does not bring happiness. We must return to the single system of Adam haRishon and realize ourselves in it with all our might, which means to connect with everyone else. Now we are given the opportunity to connect with our friends in the ten and return to group work, which is the first stage of the reconnection of Adam’s common system.

Information genes (Reshimot) are hidden in each of us and our entire path from today to the end of correction is placed in them until the revelation of the complete system of Adam haRishon. We are obliged to realize them. And the upper light continues to act, revealing more and more shattering if we do not keep up with correcting the system ahead of time. It turns out that we are going through increasingly difficult states of shattering in this world.

But if we strive to unite, we will find that our condition is improving. The goal of all evolution is to return us to a corrected state.

I and the Universe Are One Common Whole

707Question: What is the difference between the current distorted state and the corrected state that we have to come to?

Answer: Our current state is corrupted, temporary, and unstable. It gives us suffering every second because it forces us to come to global harmony.

Global harmony is when all parts of nature are interconnected and absolutely complement each other. Today this necessity is beginning to unfold in our world.

Therefore the difference between the present world and the world of the future is that by correcting our desires from receiving, from egoism, to bestowal and love, we begin to feel our world, our universe, and all other spiritual worlds together as one common whole absolutely connected with us. Meaning, I and all this are one common whole.

Moreover, I feel it as “I and everyone else are connected together.” No one and nothing disappears; all these objects, all the properties, desires, and thoughts just become one common whole, an interconnected, complementary, harmonious single body called Adam.

This spiritual construction, in which everything is harmoniously connected, is called the world of infinity, the world of infinite, perfect, harmonious, eternal existence. We will come to it because all the parts of this system complement each other, constantly overflow, exchange, and so on.

There is nothing that would die, be destroyed, or act at the expense of the other. Everything is based on mutual addition, the same as in a healthy body.

Two Parts Of Common Soul

243.01Question: Can we consider the male part of the soul in relation to the female part as Jews in relation to the nations of the world?

Answer: Yes, the male part of the soul is the active part that attracts light through itself, but it cannot do this without the demand of the second part of the soul, since the second part is the bearer of a real, egoistic, correct desire.

Therefore, only on the right combination of these two parts can there be a solution and implementation. The female part relative to the male one, or the nations of the world relative to Israel, must act together and bring themselves to a single, complete, corrected state, the soul of Adam. Then everyone will reach perfection and harmony.

This can be done now because Kabbalah is open to everyone. We can attract the upper light of correction, which will unite us and reveal the upper world to us during this lifetime.

The Result Of Shattering Of The Common Soul

559Question: Where does the phenomenon of transgender come from, when a person is outwardly born a man, but feels like a woman and undergoes sex change surgery? Or vice versa?

Answer: This comes from the fact that we are all the result of the shattering of a common soul.

The Creator created one soul, one spiritual structure, which was specially divided into many parts so that we could know the Creator through them and reach His status, His degree, and merge with Him.

It was not just shattered into different parts in terms of power, qualities, and characters, but also by gender. At the same time, one part of the soul is engaged in mastering the technique of correction and attracting an upper force, the other is developing desire and arousing the male part to development with the help of the same upper force.

Since we are broken parts of a single soul, in the process of our correction, adaptation, and return to the upper world from which we fell after being shattered, we constantly mix with each other. Together, men and women give birth to both boys and girls.

It is the same in the spiritual world. We give birth to both male and female souls, and the Creator, the third force, determines, in principle, the fate of each of them in accordance with the final goal. In general, this is not a simple system.

For tens of thousands of years of humanity’s existence there has been constant physiological animal mixing, especially in our time when on one hand egoism has risen, and on the other hand it has reached a terrible, amazing mixing between nations in our generation.

Moreover, this mixing is not so much physical as internal—in culture, in mentality, and in dependence on each other. As a result there is such an agitation in the souls when they cannot accurately associate themselves with their roots, including sexually.

And here a person gets confused with his orientation both spiritually and physically. Even in spiritual work, we sometimes observe that a man who should realize himself as a man actually tends to a more feminine version of soul correction. Conversely there are many women who would like to be in the place of men in their spiritual realization.

I think this is a necessary degree of our development. It contains a very serious plan, when by mutual penetration, rapprochement, and mixing from above, we begin to better analyze, absorb, and separate the sexes.

This will lead to the fact that men in both the spiritual and physical world will understand women better, and women will understand men better. But today there is no such understanding. For this you need to be a serious Kabbalist in order to really be able to enter into the inner world of a woman and understand her, and vice versa.

One of the goals of Kabbalistic education is to give people the opportunity to come to the right interaction with each other. Otherwise, our world will become a world of people who don’t see each other. They only occasionally meet somewhere, have intercourse, and run away. And even if you live together with someone, such cohabitation is not something in common.

In other words, our mutual mixing is necessary even in such unpleasant, unnatural forms of egoistic development because only in this way can we come to a special kind of egoism, which consists of all possible forms, and then everyone will be able to understand the other more and better.

Soul Connection System

264.01There is a connection between us that emanates from our original source of complete interconnection, which is called the system of Adam from the word “Edomeh – similar.” This system is completely similar to the Creator and we are all its particles.

After the breakage of the system of Adam into egoistic particles, we moved away from each other and became opposite to each other. And now we have to overcome the antagonism, the rejection, between us and bring ourselves back to the global connection.

This is our mission. And it should be done here while on Earth in this world. The system of connection of souls means that we all must internally strive for such a connection between us in order to form a combination of forces, thoughts, and aspirations that would be directed only to goodness.

Eventually from our good aspirations for each other, we will create an absolutely integral and interconnected state called Adam or one common soul, which will be similar to the Creator.

In other words, just as the human body lives due to the interconnection of the cells of the body, here we must also be connected by feelings and emotions. And it needs to start right now.

The Paradox Of Life

264.01What determines that some people suffer more and others less? It is from the inner basis of a person, from his place in the general system, because he is as a certain cornerstone in it responsible for the entire system, and therefore, he must be pushed more sharply toward correction.

There are no dealings with individuals as is commonly believed. Never! Because the system is general. Only the inclusion of a person is taken into account.

None of us live on our own. Can a single cell exist in the body on its own? If it lives only for itself, then it turns into a cancer cell. It must give itself completely to the whole organism. Only for its sake does it exist, by its order it dies, by its order it functions without any thought of itself.

And then—this is a paradox—if everything in the body exists only for the common life: the heart is not for itself, the lungs are not for itself, all parts of the body are not for their own sake, then the whole organism really lives and functions successfully.

Imagine what a balanced system it is! It is like you are hanging in the air and everyone has to think about everyone. As soon as somebody thinks of himself, everything collapses, you fall.

We exist in exactly such a system. It turns out that by taking care of each other, we come to a state when we rise above the level of our existence.

What is the paradox? If my animal body exists and thanks to it I exist as a human above my animal body, then when I consciously connect with other people into a single harmony, I will begin to feel my existence at a higher level, at the level of the Creator.

Attaining The Common Soul

929Question: How can we see all seven billion people as the greatest? Is this worth doing it at all?

Answer: These seven billion people are all parts of your soul. We are all parts of the common soul, Adam. Therefore, there are no problems here. In the end, we will all attain this soul. Its quality of bestowal is called Adam and the quality of reception is called Hava (Eve).

We all exist in this system and we just have to open our eyes and arrange it in the correct way.

What Is The Program Of Life

962.4Question: What is the real program of life?

Answer: The program of life is to enable every level to develop and reach a higher level. This is what happens from one state to another on the spiritual ladder until we reach the level of Adam (the human level) that resembles the upper force. The animate level doesn’t change in its essence, it remains the animate level, but it develops a form that is similar to the upper force, which is called Adam.

This means that a person doesn’t become like the upper force, like the Creator, but with regard to the levels of still, vegetative, and animate nature he becomes a partner of the upper force. We cannot reach a level above the level of Adam. What happens with us happens above the still, vegetative, and animate levels, which means a change of intention but not of our actual nature.

Question: Can we say that in our current state we humans are but biological robots?

Answer: We are biological robots. We are not different from other animals at all. We live by our instincts, desires, and thoughts, just like them. Only if we receive the power of bestowal from above and use it, will we become similar to the force of bestowal that is totally external to us and detached from us.

It is like looking at a mirror and seeing something similar to you, which is why we are called Adam, from the Hebrew word “Edomeh” – “to resemble” the upper force. But it is already a totally different nature. This nature can be clothed in us to some degree and can enable us to function like the upper force, above our egoistic desires.

It is only a replica, like a reflection in a mirror, which is why we are called Adam, yet we remain like the animate level in this world with the ability to acquire additional upper force, to bestow, to connect, to be above our nature, above our ego.

How Can Love For One’s Neighbor Lead To Love For The Creator?

237How can love for one’s neighbor lead to love for the Creator? We must always remember that we came from one soul, from Adam HaRishon. The Creator created Adam, filled him, and organized everything in him.

All processes and all states are embedded within this Kli. However, we have data from the shattering, which is opposite to perfection and connection, and in this way, from an imperfect state to a perfect one, we need to reach the intended purpose.

All the data from the previous states is already present in Adam HaRishon; we do not discover anything new. As it says, “There is nothing new under the sun.” Our task is only to put everything in order, to make ourselves ready to accept all the stages of connection and the spiritual world that is being revealed to us.

After the shattering we became opposite from love for one’s neighbor. This was done on purpose in order to connect us with light and darkness, hatred and love, connection and separation, because only out of the two opposites are we able to feel what it means to be a created being and to be a Creator. After all there is no Creator without created beings.

We are lacking this feeling, and therefore we do not notice the Creator. We only say that the Creator is concealed, but in fact there is no concealment. The Creator is everywhere, but we are just not able to reveal Him with our senses. The force of bestowal fills all of reality, but we only reveal a little bit of the force of reception and with it we depict this entire world, our bodies, our universe. There is nothing real in this picture.

Shattering and concealment were arranged in order to give us the opportunity to gradually open our eyes and form a spiritual sensory organ. Otherwise it was impossible to establish the created beings.

The created being is a special concept. The Creator had to prepare all the conditions: from completeness to absolute incompleteness, up to the point of separation and utter darkness, in order for us to rise from this darkness and disconnection, from this almost non-existing state. After all, this state exists only at one point that establishes the relationship of the Creator with the future created beings, which is called a point in the heart or a part of divinity from above or a spark of light.

This spark operates in every created being, advances it closer and closer to the feeling of reality outside of it, that is, the force of bestowal. As a person develops, he begins at least to feel what is happening outside of him in the corporeal world and attains corporeality. Although in fact it is not happening outside, but rather inside of him. Then he comes to spiritual attainment.

This is how we gradually build our Kelim through connection with each other. At first it is an egoistic connection, for the sake of doing well in this world. Then new Kelim, spiritual ones, gradually become revealed within us.

We need to understand that egoism leads us to a dead-end, and we need to come to the truth that is above us. It is not we who establish the laws of the world, but the upper force; there is nothing besides it. We need to study these laws and try to perform the correction.

Everything begins with submission. Therefore the more a person and humanity succumb to their egoistic nature, the more they receive blows, after which they will have to conclude that we have no way to act according to our egoism, but we need to study what actually corresponds to the laws of the world or the laws of upper nature, the laws of the Creator.
