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.

Turn On The Light In The Universe

935To the extent that we are connected in the ten, we will begin to feel the need to add more and more tens to us and expand the boundaries of our unity because only in this form can we get closer and closer to the Creator.

The revelation of the Creator happens in both quantitative and qualitative ways. The force of the revelation depends on how much we can expand our Kli by adding new tens, that is, Partzufim. At the same time, the quality of the revelation increases because there is the main entity, the main Kli on which the additional ones are clothed, adding harmonics to the main tone.

The most resounding combinations, the most subtle fragrances, all the beauty of scrutinizing is achieved by adding additional tens. As a result, we begin to feel spirituality. Just as in our world there exists something simple, like a foundation without which nothing can exist, but all the beauty is achieved through additions, seasonings, which in themselves do not seem so important and fundamental, but give all the taste, aroma, and color.

This is not a simple addition, because the spiritual world does not exist in three dimensional coordinates—it has no axes at all, but it is like a sphere. Therefore, by awakening one cell, we ignite and enliven the entire creation. Then we will see that all the infinite spaces of the universe, all the galaxies are zero, because we will enter into completely different dimensions.

The Building Order To The Creator

935The soul is not built by will, as if they are erecting a building, but they are waiting for the Creator to build it. The correct appeal goes through unification in the ten to the Creator.

I only order this construction and I do not even know exactly how the Creator will build it and in what form. And it does not matter to me at all!

I want it to come from above, especially in our time when we are building the Third Temple within us. It is said that all of it descends from above in the contrast to all the previous stages, the First and Second Temples.

Like Cells In The Body

944Question: A Kabbalist cannot work with a huge number of people at once. First, there must be some small cell. Can we say that ten people are such a mini-society, where everyone will constantly check their attitude toward others?

Answer: This environment not only supports a person on the earthly level in good connection with others, but also, by uniting with them, he begins to feel a common desire, common goals, a common system of correct interconnection between ten friends so that in the end they form a system called, the upper world, or Partzuf, or soul. And the inner strength in this system is the Creator.

Question: It turns out that these ten people are like a cell in the body, which is starting to cooperate with other cells and form organs?

Answer: Right. Every ten that we try to create from our like-minded people will connect with other tens to form one organism together called the “common soul” or Adam.

Question: Thus, a person, starting to work in a mini-group, goes beyond his egoism thanks to constant work in his ten and can already connect with other people, with all of humanity. How does this happen?

Answer: As cells in the body connect despite the fact that each cell belongs to some specific part of the body, a specific organ, through all other cells, it is connected to any other. And this is what the general system Adam (Man) is.

Love Will Cover All Crimes

239Love will cover all transgressions. This means that day by day we will have to reveal new sins because without this it is impossible to advance. Selfishness is bound to develop more and more. The Creator only gave rise to creation by breaking the common soul of Adam HaRishon. From this, the evil inclination began to unfold, our great desire to receive pleasure, and we need to help this egoism open more and more so that it does not remain at the inanimate, vegetative, or animate level.

But egoism can be revealed only in the opposite form. If we want to accelerate the disclosure of egoism, we must, on the contrary, strive to achieve unity. And if yesterday we did not come to a greater awareness of evil than the day before yesterday, then we did not strive for unity.

Every day we try to unite, and as a result, rejection will open up to us, for which we will ask for the power of correction so that love will cover all transgressions. And so we will continue to advance.

It is necessary to reveal evil and attract good to it in order to cover all crimes with love. Without transgressions, there will be no union, there will be no correction of the Kli. We must open all the cracks, all the breaking, in our union, in the vessel of the common soul of Adam HaRishon. And this is possible only when we strive to unite.

First, we perform artificial actions, trying to achieve unification, but we see that the Creator does not allow us to unite. On the contrary, it reveals hatred and rejection between us. And this is the desired result, because crimes are being disclosed on top of which we can truly unite and cover them with love. But this is already with the help of a prayer to the Creator who will give us the power of unity. And so we come to correction.

This is the work: We strive for good, and the Creator reveals evil to us, but we try to cover evil with good, and we turn to the Creator for help. These are the two actions: back and forth, back and forth, corresponding to the four stages of the Kli.

You can imagine that we are sitting in a boat and rowing together, each with his own oar. Each does work in his own Kli. He is drawn to union and sees that rejection awakens in its place. And then he makes a second movement: He turns to the Creator, asks for help, and sees how the Creator makes a row of paddles for him. He does not leave the Creator until He completes the action, covering all crimes, transgressions, with love.

I do the first row with an oar: I try to connect with my friends and I see that I am not achieving what I want, but I am revealing negative qualities. And then I turn to the Creator and ask Him to correct this negative. And so we row all the time: one-two, one-two. The first one or two are mine, where nothing works for me, and the second one or two is done by the Creator and are already successful. It is said about this: “The Creator will finish this work for me.”

The first time I try to do and reveal the shortcomings, and the second time I turn to the Creator with these shortcomings and see a successful result.

A ten sits in one boat, and each holds his paddle with both hands. The Gabai sits at the stern and cheers on the rowers, while the Shaatz sits at the bow of the boat. And that’s how we all go.

The first paddle movement is to reveal a flaw. I want to connect with my friends, but I reveal that I am not capable of it. That is, the first time I try to do it myself and find out my impotence. But at the same time, I am aware of my failure, that is, I open the Kli. And in the second stroke with the paddle, I already ask the Creator to help me and finish this work for me.

This is the case every time: the first stroke is the revelation of the lack and the second stroke is the Creator’s help. As a result, we advance in our boat, first making efforts to reveal evil, and then turning to the Creator for correction and revelation of the goodness.

First of all, I must be grateful to the Creator and friends. After all, the goal of creation can be achieved only by tuning into the friends with closed eyes, if they want and can accept me. And the Creator must dissolve me in my friends, unite me with everyone without any distinction between us.

Therefore, I am grateful to the Creator and the friends for the fact that they exist and give me the opportunity to join them, lose myself, and be born again, which is called “going through the eye of a needle.” Nothing remains of me except the net desire, which I drag through the eye of a needle, and so I move from world to world.

A Ten The Size Of The World

laitman_933If everything depends on our connection within the ten, why are we given this whole world? How do I connect it to this picture?

Indeed, there is nothing else apart from the ten. And all the wider circles, the world Kabbalistic group and all mankind, are the same ten, only with more and more resolution.

I see a whole kaleidoscope of all sorts of colors, different people and things, but all this was originally in my ten, only I couldn’t see it. And now I see different continents, a multitude of people and forms, revealing a greater desire in the same ten.

The desire of friends suddenly grows to the size of a world group, and then the ten swells to the size of all mankind. But there are still ten of them, not nine or eleven—just one Kli. In every particle of the universe only one law exists, the same ten.

The Ten Is A Standard Spiritual Vessel

934Spirituality is different from corporeality. In corporeality, the size of a vessel is usually measured by quantity: one liter, two, three, thousand, etc. The larger the volume of the vessel, the larger the vessel is. But in spirituality, the size of a vessel is determined not by its volume, but by the number of different properties that increase its resolution: the number of pixels.

Therefore, in corporeality, a single person can be very smart and elevated. But in spirituality, the connection with the ten means much more, which gives a huge spiritual addition. The number of different properties acquired from connection with other people determines the size of my spiritual vessel (Kli).

Therefore, advancement in spirituality means that the number of people with whom we connect, the number of souls, desires, and opinions that we include, grows. This is a qualitative difference between somebody who is considered great in the corporeal world and in the spiritual world.

In the corporeal world, I expand my own vessel into which I can receive more and more. But if I want to increase my vessel in spirituality, then I must include additional desires that are different from mine, and by this I increase my Kli.

Ten people, “the ten” is a standard spiritual Kli in which I do not cancel, do not suppress, and do not repulse anyone, but unite everyone on absolutely equal terms. This means that I do not even evaluate them in order to equalize, but everything is equalized by the upper light; it unites the friends in my mind and heart in absolute harmony and merger and turns them into my spiritual Kli.

On The Path Of Knowledge

laitman_962.1Question: From your lectures, I understand that there is an animalistic, egoistic nature of a person. There is also the upper force that leads us to the development of our altruistic nature. However, is it possible to attain this force if we do not experience altruism in action?

Answer: It is very difficult, practically impossible. In order to actually realize a connection with the upper force, you need a group. A small group, preferably of ten people, who will engage in the same development as you.

In principle, you need to develop integral qualities within yourself in order to feel what is outside of you. If you do this in a group together with your own kind, then in the correct connection with each other, you will find exactly in your ten those qualities that begin to detect the external force, that is, the Creator, and you reveal Him in the connection between you.

Question: What you do is also a certain way of serving people, where you give them the opportunity to come into contact with the method of Kabbalah. In other words, this is a kind of altruistic path, and it is not limited to the ten. Does it mean that it does not have to be ten people? Can it also be humanity?

Answer: This is still called a ten, whether it is humanity or several people.

Question: As part of our path of knowledge, is one of the points that we are striving to reach some kind of connection with the absolute through understanding Him completely?

Answer: Yes. This is the result of studying and correctly applying your forces in order to fully connect with the upper force.

Question: Is the other point to which we aim finding harmony?

Answer: Attaining harmony is based on the constant revelation that we are in the opposite state to it. However, the yearning should be precisely for harmony, to include all the forces, all the qualities, all the thoughts into one unified whole.

Question: If a person advancing along his path of knowledge came across one or another Kabbalistic form of truth, then is his further service associated with creating a space where other people can also get acquainted with it?

Answer: Of course. This is the general progress, the general correction of the world, its general advancement toward the goal. And the goal is an integral connection between us by the good forces.

The Ten—A Device For Revealing The Creator

laitman_934The Creator can be revealed only by dissolving in the friends and rising to the level of the Bina. It is similar to a device that is needed to detect an invisible magnetic field. This device will show that there is a certain force acting on it and deflecting its dial. That is, it shows us not the force itself, but its reaction to this force.

We make ourselves a device for revealing the Creator, which works on the same principle as all measuring instruments of our world. We only have to organize everything correctly within us, and we will be able to discover the Creator.

The device must perceive the phenomenon and react to it, and then its reaction can be measured and the device can be used to estimate the force that caused it. We do not know what electromagnetic forces are, but we know how they act; they cause current to flow in a wire or the movement of a compass needle. We always see the reaction of the device, not the force itself, and we draw conclusions, naming it by the phenomenon itself.

In order to reveal the Creator, we need to build such a compass from ourselves, an induction circuit, a device that will reveal the upper force. The Creator is twirling everything inside us now as well, but we are not paying attention to Him. What change must one make inside oneself in order to discern Him?

All our work consists in this calibration, in tuning to the Creator. The problem is that I feel my own reaction to the influence of the upper force, and I need to decrypt it in such a way as to find the Creator in it. I respond to His influence within my desire, my body. Therefore, I need to calibrate myself so that my desire allows me to correctly understand the actions of the Creator.

And for this I need to annul myself to zero, so as not to demand anything for my egoism. Every device is first calibrated in such a way, set to zero, and then it can be used for measuring.

Our initial calibration is to want nothing for ourselves, so as not to be bribed and not to judge with bias. We carry out such calibration in the ten. If I try to join the center of the ten and want to connect with all my friends, I reset my device. Now, from this zero, I can begin to respond correctly to the Creator, to His impact on me.

Zeroing is already a starting point allowing one to get nothing for oneself, but only for the ten. I have no indicator other than my ten to verify that I receive nothing for my egoism. If there are friends in front of me who I think of, then I annul myself in front of them. It turns out that I personally become neutral, that is, zero.

In this way we build the correct device for the perception of the Creator. Under the influence of the upper force we begin to awaken to mutual bestowal in the ten. The Creator gives us the power of bestowal by which we reveal that He is between us. After all, we began to relate to each other in this way in the ten and we received the property of Bina, bestowal, the strength of faith above our resistance, our knowledge.

Resistance also begins to be felt more because a force comes to us that flows inside the ties connecting us, as if in an electronic device, and we feel resistance within ourselves. In this way we measure the difference of potentials: between bestowal—above, and reception—below, which are called “faith” and “knowledge.”

And these steps of faith and knowledge begin to rise: The strength of our egoism grows, and the strength of bestowal grows, and in this way we rise. The difference of potentials between Malchut and Bina, as it were, remains the same—the seven Sefirot of Zeir Anpin.

At first it was just zero. But then it gradually grew to seven Sefirot. Zeir Anpin is the Partzuf of my soul that has just been born. The soul grows in Bina’s abdomen due to its connection with Malchut, which annuls itself in relation to Bina.

Seven Sefirot of ZA—this is the place where I reveal all of reality. In this gap between knowledge and above knowledge are all the worlds, the whole universe. There is nothing else. Above Bina are already the properties of the Creator: Keter, Hochma, Bina. Below Bina are the properties of ZA, which has just been born. And Malchut is the desire to enjoy created by the Creator. Therefore, besides these properties that I develop between Malchut and Bina, there is nothing else—this is all my reality.

Merging With The Ten

laitman_530Question: The Creator is between us. Do I need to ask the Creator to correct me or to correct the whole ten, the whole world ten? Does the Creator hear me wherever I am or only when I am in the ten?

Answer: The Creator feels the created being only to the extent that he resembles Him.

The Creator’s attribute is bestowal, while a person’s attribute is receiving. In this state, a person does not feel the Creator. We can see that on ourselves.

If a desire to reveal the Creator appears in a person, he can fulfill this desire only if he creates the right conditions for that, such as being in a group and working seriously on the connection with the friends.

If a person unites with the friends in the group, he will begin to feel the Creator through the ten. A person actually feels the connection with the Creator to the extent that he merges with the ten, and not in any other way.
