In The Web Of The Spiritual System

laitman_264.01Question: How can degrees of different qualities be multiplied with each other: five degrees of the individual soul and five degrees of the spiritual worlds?

Answer: They do not multiply; rather, they mutually enter into each other. Each of the degrees has 10 parts, and each of them also has 10 parts, and so on indefinitely.

Five Sefirot form one Partzuf, five Partzufim form one world and there are five worlds in total. So we get: five Sefirot times five Partzufim and times five worlds—125 basic degrees.

However, when we go through them, we also include many other sub-degrees that are formed within us. Yet, we do not take them into account because they accompany our actions. We cannot take into account billions of various small desires that exist in us on the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels and the smallest nuances in our relationships with each other.

We are in an integral system and when a person makes even one small movement, he affects the entire system. You pulled something, like a spider pulls a strand and the entire web is immediately activated. It is the same here.

Union For The Sake Of Birth Of The Soul

laitman_938.05The whole of reality is created as a result of the spreading of Light that created desire “out of nothing” and then developed it. Starting from the Big Bang, the desire increasingly coarsened, and so waves, gases, and inanimate matter were created.

Then on Earth appeared plants, animals, and man, who undergoes many stages of development until he reaches similarity to the Creator.

It is interesting that the Light and the desire are imprinted in the creature as two kinds: male and female. Male and female qualities, following the example of two spiritual Partzufim: Aba (father) and Ima (mother), Hassadim and Hochma, connect with each other and give birth to a new generation of masculine or feminine.

Connection between a man and a woman is special, because on one hand they are opposite to each other, but on the other hand, they feel that they have a common goal. The common spiritual goal unites them so much that they act together and give birth to offspring. From this, it is clear where the concept of family comes from and the natural desire to live as a couple, to give birth, and to grow its own continuation.

We all are one family. Not only grandfather and grandmother, father and mother, and children, and so on from generation to generation, but all men and all women in general are one family, descendants of Adam and Eve. There is a big difference between spiritual men and women.

The result of our connection with each other, a child that we can give birth to, is called “a soul.” When we present this connection to the Creator, He gives a spirit of life to it. In this soul, in the correct connection between us, we reach adhesion with the Creator, as it is written, “Man, woman, and Shechina (Divinity) between them.”

The main thing is to know that our connection with each other must be for the sake of building a soul. This means that without friends, I cannot obtain a soul.

If I connect with my friend through my desire to receive, then the desire to bestow is participating from his side, and vice versa—if from his side, the desire to receive, then from my side, the desire to bestow. We always act between each other as Zahar (masculine quality) and Nekeva (feminine quality) that exist in any creature.

Most importantly, a connection between us should be organized, and as a result, it should give birth to the soul. I always expect this from a friend and I myself respond in the same way. With each contact, conversation, or any joint work, we construct our souls at every moment, that is, a place for revealing the Creator, so that the upper Light will fill our communicating common desires.

Coefficient Of Bestowal

Laitman_509Any science in the world studies connections between parts of reality, each on its level of reality—physiological, psychological, biological, and physical—and so there is psychology, biology, physics, etc.

The wisdom of Kabbalah does not deal with these levels, but with the most basic level, that is the desire contained in each part of creation, only in different forms, on different levels, and in different sizes.

Therefore, Kabbalah is considered the main science. It conducts the same scientific research as any other science, derives formulas, studies creation and the actions of the Creator, clarifies our place in creation, and measures creation in relation to the Creator. All this presupposes a serious scientific study. All other sciences do not give such exact definitions.

In fact, creation is very complicated. Although it would seem that it is based on a very simple formula: the Creator’s desire to bestow equals the creature’s desire to receive.

However, this is not a simple equality because it includes a coefficient that should equalize the desire to receive and the desire to bestow: the Creator’s desire to bestow equals C multiplied by the creature’s desire to receive.

This coefficient includes within itself a restriction, a screen (Masach), and Reflected Light. We need to implement this equation all the time. Therefore, I must know the desire to receive, the desire to bestow, and my coefficient.

So I always study the Creator’s desire to bestow. I aspire to and equate myself with Him. According to these parameters, I determine my state and place in creation. In this way, I explore all of creation. Without this, it is impossible to relate to the Creator correctly, and I need to reach the degree of love for Him. The coefficient is my intention for the sake of bestowal. Without it, I cannot contact the Creator.

The Only Principle Of Creation

Laitman_521The names of the Sefirot: Keter, Hochma, Bina, Hesed, Gevura, Tifferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut refer to the inner content of the connections in the creation.

Sometimes we meet another Sefira in the plan called Daat. Two directions stem from Keter, Hochma, and Bina, which under the impact of Keter create the Sefira of Daat, which is not included in the ten Sefirot.

From Daat stems a separate direction to Hesed and Gevura, which meet in Tifferet. This is how the interaction between the Sefirot takes place. There are many more such connections. Everything in creation is organized and arranged this way: every cell, every atom, every grain of sand, and the whole huge universe are all built according to the one structure of the ten Sefirot.

Our egoistic desires are in a black point called Malchut and are the outcome of all the force that impacts us. It makes no difference what level of cooperation the desires are on whether they are on a psychological, physiological, or physical level. On every cosmogenic level in the universe and in all the worlds, the principle is the same—ten Sefirot.
