The Highest Harmony Of The Spiritual World

610.2Question: Kabbalistic sources state that if we were to collect the pleasure experienced by all people throughout the entire history of mankind, it would still not be possible to compare it with the feeling of one gram of spiritual pleasure. Is this really so?

Answer: This is how it is. The fact is that nothing can compare with the spiritual world in terms of the strength, depth, and details of perception, the possibilities related to grasping opposing properties and states, as well as finding out how to compare them and connect them with each other.

Only the science of Kabbalah allows us to feel the highest level of harmony that consists of absolutely opposite properties. The revelation of the upper world is built precisely on the comparison of the most extreme opposites that, not only, cannot only be connected in any way, but also cannot even be compared in our world.

Any spiritual phenomenon consists of two opposite states that are not connected at the level of our world and cannot be studied together. It is only within our earthly minds on the material level that they do not have the opportunity to be connected somehow or to affect each other. Qualitatively, these are completely different states. The spiritual world could be characterized as the comparison of incomparable objects and phenomena.

It gives enormous pleasure because one feels harmony above the fact that everything you can imagine, even on the level of our world, is negating and mutually exclusive, whereas in the spiritual world, it is quite the contrary; everything is mutually supportive and creates the highest harmony out of the opposites.

Question: So if in the material world, two opposite states lead a person to a state of despair and one cannot explain why it is happening this way, in spirituality, it is the opposite?

Answer: In the spiritual world, they become even more opposite, critical, and sharply directed against each other. Then, a very new solution appears between them even though the conflict seemed unsolvable at the level of our world.

This creates a new volume in which the higher world exists.

Two Governances: Heaven And Earth

214There are two governances in the world: heavenly and earthly. One acts from the side of nature, advancing the program of evolution as planned: “in due time,” leading each one and everyone all together to a predetermined state. As a result, the two forces—good and evil—must join together, replenish each other, and fully reveal the Creator to us.

The upper force created good and evil and imprinted them in creation. And now they must unite in order to reveal the Creator within this unity. This is the plan of heavenly governance, and the world will certainly carry it out; there is no doubt about it.

Nature will brutally push us toward this correction. Extinct dinosaurs, erupting volcanoes, tsunami waves, wars, all these prove that nature advances the program of heaven without any mercy, regardless of the fact that it causes suffering to our egoism.

But the human, the most developed part of nature, has the opportunity to get acquainted with this process, with the program of creation and its purpose, and become an assistant to the Creator in its implementation. In this case, he will be called “human.”

If a person takes control and strives to become like the Creator, he accelerates the development and reduces suffering. But he is trying not for his own sake but only to support the program of creation and to prove to everyone the righteousness of the Creator, to justify Him in everything.

Kabbalah And The Big Bang

619Question: I recently learned about the science of Kabbalah, and it seems to me that it does not answer the question of the beginning of creation. You often mention the Big Bang theory, thus supporting the teachings of godless materialistic scientists.

And Kabbalah says that God exists. Based on this logic, it turns out that an aircraft can be produced by blowing up an aircraft factory?

Answer: You are a little confused. First, the Big Bang that took place at the beginning of creation and which is described in the wisdom of Kabbalah is not something that actually existed and later exploded and ceased to exist. It is the penetration of upper energy into the lowest level, the level of our world, and the beginning of its spreading.

Before that, there was no time, motion, or space. One microscopic spark of the upper light that materialized in our world generated a space in which our universe and everything that is in it exists starting from hydrogen, helium, and all the other elements.

Second, the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us how this energy descended through the five upper worlds, from the world of Ein Sof to the last spiritual world called the world of Asiya, and then crossed that barrier between the spiritual world and our world and gave birth to everything that is in it. All this is studied in the science of Kabbalah.

At The Beginning Of Creation: Line And Circle

548.03First, the light creates the desire to receive through the four stages of direct light and fills it. But the last fourth stage of desire makes a restriction, and the light goes out of all the spheres of this desire, from all its stages. And then the fourth stage begins to attract light by a special method called “line.”

The difference between a round sphere and a line is that there were no restrictions in the sphere and light could fill all the desire created by the Creator. And in the line, the desire itself determines in what form the light will come and fill it.

The circle is the filling of desire without any restrictions, and the line is the condition that the light comes only according to the desire and the desire restricts the light, leaving only a thin line from the sphere.

From this we can see that in the four stages of direct light there is no creation yet, and everything exists as created by the Creator. But then the desire to enjoy begins to manifest itself and limits the upper light, determining how the light can fill it and connect with it.

At first, all the spheres—zero, first, second, third, and fourth—were completely filled with light. But then the fourth stage felt itself receiving and opposite to the light. So it restricted its desire, and the light was gone. But since nothing is done in the spiritual by halves, the light has departed all spheres.

And now the fourth stage itself decides in what form the light will come and fill it, and decides not only for itself but also for all other spheres. And it turns out that all this empty space, all the spheres are cut only by one thin ray (line), one sector of light.

It is like a tube through which light flows, passing outside from the world of Ein Sof to the center of all spheres, inside all space, where the restriction operates.

The line is an extent of the equivalence of the desire to receive of the creation to the desire to bestow of the Creator. The line shows how much the creation is able to resemble the Creator; the more similar to the Creator the creation can be, the thicker the line, and the less similar, the thinner the line. And this determines how much light can flow through this tube. The line is a measure of a creature’s desire to become like the Creator.

Life’s Movie Script

226Everything that will happen in the future is already rooted in the initial act of creation. Each unfolding desire already has a pre-laid program, not a desire that is revealed, but an informational record, Reshimo.

These informational genes arose as a result of the spread of the worlds from the world of infinity through all spiritual degrees, Partzufim, worlds, and Sefirot, until they reached our world.

Therefore, each desire that unfolds in us already contains information, data, and findings about all the worlds but on a microscopic scale, just as a drop of semen contains all the information about a person who will be born and grow from it.

If we knew how to decipher the data in a drop of semen, we would discover from it the whole process that a person must go through, one’s entire destiny, one’s whole life. From the data extracted from a drop of semen, an entire movie could be made showing what would happen to that person. One will have to realize all this in practice; in a potential form, everything is already laid down in the Reshimo, which is in a drop of semen.

Every state that is revealed to us was obliged to reveal itself. We only need to worry about being included in the ten and attracting the reforming light. Then the light will affect the ten and construct our soul, a system in which we will reveal our spiritual state.

All of this already exists, both the Reshimot and the light attracted by us, which will affect them. It is as if we ourselves develop this movie and live through it. The more we awaken the upper light so that it affects the group, the faster the group changes, and the entire spiritual process that I have to go through reveals. It is going to be a super fun series.

All details are already coded in the Reshimo. The information gene descending into our world from the world of infinity through all worlds and all states contains all the information about the path that we must go from bottom to top back to the world of infinity.

The Reshimo of each friend in the ten is a part of the Reshimo of the entire ten. There is nothing accidental.

With the help of a prayer, we attract the light to those Reshimot that are awakening in us more and more. We are as if developing a photo under the influence of light, and each time we reveal our new form, which is more and more spiritual. This is how we discover new worlds and all kinds of changes.

Now we are in the smallest egoistic Reshimo, insignificant and blocked, from which nothing can be seen. We cannot even imagine how rich the spiritual world is at its very first stage—it is billions of times larger than this world in understanding, awareness, perception, and sensation.

That Is How We Were Created

75.01Rabash, Article 10, “What Is the Degree One Should Achieve in Order Not to Have to Reincarnate?” (1984): The thing is that we have to know that all of the souls extend from the soul of Adam HaRishon, for after he sinned in the sin of the Tree of Knowledge, his soul divided into 600,000 souls. This means that the one light that Adam HaRishon had, which the Holy Zohar called Zihara Ila’a [upper brightness], which he had in the Garden of Eden at once, spreads into numerous pieces.

There is a state called “one general soul” or Adam. This is a desire to receive, to enjoy, to fill one’s self, to be filled with Light.

In such a state this creature feels itself in the most minimal way because it has been filled quite a bit, like a baby who has been fed, had his diaper changed, lies in his mother’s arms, can smell her, and needs nothing else, he feels good.

The Creator does not wish to leave us in this state. He wants us to attain His state, which is the most mature state, and so He shattered this desire into 600,000 parts (souls), which are divided into an infinite number of sparks of the soul.

Each part differs from the others by its egoistic desire, which does not allow him to perceive the desires of others. There is a huge antagonism between them.

There is a particle of the general soul in each of us. Therefore, we don’t understand each other and cannot connect between us in any way. We can only feel that we depend on each other and that this dependence forces us to put up with each other. As long as I receive a filling in an egoistic manner, some benefit from others, I tolerate them next to me. If there is nothing I can gain from others, then I actually suffer from their presence and try to break away from them. That is how we were created.

Ein Sof (Infinity)—The Attitude Of The Creator To The Created Beings

712.03Baal HaSulam, Shamati #3, “The Matter of Spiritual Attainment”: Ein Sof pertains to the thought of creation, which is “His desire to do good to His creations.” This is considered Ein Sof, and it is the connection existing between Atzmuto and the souls. We perceive this connection as a “desire to delight the creatures.”

Ein Sof is determined as the Creator’s attitude to the created beings. The Creator is infinite in His desire to bring His creatures contentment and to give them eternal, whole, and absolute pleasure.

The created being can understand this only to the extent that one has a desire to enjoy in quality and quantity. A person receives from the Creator and determines His attitude to him and his attitude to the Creator.

Thus, “By Your actions we know You,” which means that we cannot say anything about the Creator but only something about His actions inside us. It is from these actions that we establish our impression of Him.

People who are in the spiritual world feel the Creator as the good that does good, and so they call Him the source of everything that is good. We, on the other hand, who have not reached the right attainment yet do not know how to define Him. Each one defines Him differently each moment.

Question: You say that the Creator is good. Is this already the Creator’s name for those who attain Him?

Answer: For those who attain Him it is. “The good that does good” is the Creator’s real name. It is an impression of the Creator, and this is how we reveal Him by yearning for Him.

Make The Plan Of Creation Come True

Laitman_177.06Question: Perhaps all souls are a single organism. But how can we say the whole of humanity is a single organism? What kind of organism is this? How is it connected?

Answer: We are not talking about physical bodies. We are talking about the inner meaning of creation, where it is headed, the purpose it is imbued with, and what motivations act in it on every level.

The inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human levels of nature have their own inner strength, their own vector. Everything hinges on the direction of this vector, even if we fail to realize that it exists in the smallest grain of sand as it does in a huge, remote part of the universe.

The inanimate, vegetative, and animate parts of nature are subordinate to the human level. If we directed ourselves correctly toward each other, we would suddenly find that all of nature, all the cosmos, change, their objects would become more benevolent toward each other.

We would see that there are no explosions happening randomly, no separation or removal. We would see the meaning of everything that happens in us, within or outside us, in space, in black holes, in everything.

All of nature is not just matter but thought. This thought, on different levels, strives for its perfection, for its realization. This is what Kabbalah calls the thought of creation.

We must try to make this plan of creation come to life so that it reaches its single, final essence, it’s form and realization.

The World Of Roots And The World Of Consequences

712.03Remark: The form of corporeal reality is similar to the spiritual one. The difference is only in the quality of the material. There is no detail in our reality that would not have a root in the upper world.

In other words, our world is the world of consequences and the spiritual world, or the world of forces, is the world of roots, i.e., root causes.

My Reply: Everything is very simple. There are reasons and there are consequences. The cause is the upper world, and the effect is our world. Depending on this, we can define them like that.

Question: You said that in the spiritual worlds there are such phenomena that have no consequences in our world. There is a wider range of various sensations there and are not all of them materialized in our world?

Answer: Yes. What do the spiritual world and our world mean? The spiritual world is what is felt in our desires that are corrected into bestowal, into love for others. Our world is what is felt in our uncorrected, selfish desires.

Naturally, there is a difference in sensations because both worlds, their boundaries, calibration, and everything else, are determined only relative to a person. Therefore, we can talk either about what is felt by an ordinary person in our world, not corrected in his egoism, or by a person who has already risen above his egoism and feels what is happening in the intention for bestowal or love for the neighbor.

New Life 1184 – The Formation Of Life

New Life 1184 – The Formation Of Life
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

All forms of life that evolve exist as a non-materialized force in nature. Life is created through this force so that the desire to receive develops all its needs at each level of evolution including the inanimate, vegetative, and animate forms found in nature. We cannot change the inner desire in nature, so we cannot turn inanimate parts into living parts. The next level of evolution will require of us to use the forces of nature in order to correct the human ego. The more advanced human being will live for the benefit of others and will feel love for the whole world. Through connection, we will build another life together, feel eternity, and reveal the power of the Creator.
