Conditions For Revealing Actions Of The Creator

530How can we begin to feel the Creator within the connection with our friends in the ten? The main work is to explore all the aspects of our coming closer to each other and distancing from each other at the level of feelings. If we try to establish the correct relations between our friends in practice, then we will begin to feel the Creator within these actions.

If we do not make these attempts together, then how can we create the Creator? After all, it is said: “You have made Me,” that is, we build the Creator. We must connect with each other so closely that we begin to understand what is called “the Creator.”

We need to assemble the Creator from our desires as if from Lego blocks. If, despite the rejection from each other, we yearn to connect above it, then by scrutinizing these two states together, disconnection and connection, distancing and coming closer, we will begin to reveal who the Creator is, whom we assemble and build as a result of our actions.

If we do not have a ten and the opportunity to build the Creator within it in this way, then there is no chance and no hope that He will ever be revealed. If my friends and I do not put together His image from our cubes, we will not be able to reveal Him. We are standing right next to the opportunity to build the Creator, but we are not building Him!

The Creator is called “come and see” (Bo-Reh). When we build our connection with the desire and intention to complete each other and assemble something common, we feel how it begins to come to life.

Imagine that we take inanimate particles from nature, atoms in which there is nothing but negative and positive charges, and connect them together in such a way that suddenly we get something alive and developing. Atoms connect with each other so that they turn into an organic molecule, that is, into living matter inside of which there is life, and the secret of life is hidden within it. All the foundations and secrets of creation are hidden inside the DNA, and where does this force of life come from?

How do inanimate particles, protons, electrons, neutrons, and mesons by their connection bring themselves to such a state that a force called “life” is suddenly revealed inside them? We do not understand this, we only see that instead of inorganic bricks, from which we had to build a house, like from children’s blocks, something alive suddenly appears, which builds itself and grows by itself.

The force of the Creator awakens in them, the force of creation, and they begin to connect with each other. We only create conditions for them; we as if give the Creator the opportunity to be revealed. Then they begin to build themselves and the act of creation takes place, Maase Bereshit.

Therefore our work is not to get inside and interfere with the work of the Creator, but to create conditions for revealing the action of the upper force.

A Thread Extended From Infinity

938.04Kabbalists write that the Creator reveals Himself in the connection between us, in the center of the group. And everything that happens between us in the center of our group is perceived at the degree above us, which is called the Creator.

We are on a spiritual ladder that we need to climb up to the next degree above us, and then another, and yet another even higher. And we always receive instructions, lights, signals, and awakenings from the upper degree.

Therefore, it is necessary to strive to establish a connection with the upper degree and to become incorporated in it. This connection is achieved thanks to the greatness of the upper degree.

The upper degree relative to the lower is always considered as the Creator relative to creation. We have descended these degrees from the world of infinity through the Partzufim of Galgalta, AB, SAG to the degree of this world through five worlds, with five Partzufim in each world, and five Sefirot in each Partzuf,  which makes a total of 5 x 5 x 5 = 125 degrees.

We climb back up the same degrees. And the upper degree relative to the lower one is always called the Creator. First of all, this is so because it really gave birth to the lower degree when descending from top to bottom. And also because we can ascend back through it and attain it, “Come and see” the Creator, Bo-Re. And we will be able to climb even higher from it and move forward.

For every ten there is a thread extended from the world of infinity. And by this thread we must ascend to the world of infinity, to the end of correction. If we follow the advice of Kabbalists, then every time we rise from degree to degree from Malchut to Bina and again from Malchut to Bina.

The lower degree is called Malchut in relation to the higher degree called Bina. The elevating force is called faith above reason, the force of bestowal, the force of Bina, above the force of Malchut, the desire to receive. If we prefer the desire to bestow and connection with friends, then we can rise from Malchut to Bina, from the lower to the highest degree.

Invest In The Eternal

934First of all, I live inside the ten, my small group of friends, as if I grow in a capsule. And only when I grow up will I be able to get out of it into the open world and be freely connected with it.

In the meantime, I can only work in the world to provide for corporeal needs and take care of my family, which means, I communicate with it on a physical level. But beside that, I have a part of the upper world, a part of eternity, and this is the group that determines my eternal spiritual state.

I will have to say goodbye to this world anyway because we will all die one day and lose all connection with it. But I will not lose touch with the group because I am building an environment in it with which I will continue on. This is my spirituality.

Therefore, do not confuse one with the other. And let’s decide what is more important to us.

The importance of the goal, the spiritual path, gives us strength. After all, what could be more important in life? Is it worth focusing on material ties that will break sooner or later when I leave this world, or on a career, on money? The world is shifting to such a state that soon we will all be left with nothing. And then, what should we worry about except spirituality?

The Creator gradually brings us closer to understanding that there is nothing to think about except spirituality. Ultimately, we have no freedom of choice and ability to change anything. Even before we die, we already realize that there is nothing significant left in this world except actions of bestowal, connection, and to reveal of the Creator.

Nothing else remains even in our material life, nothing remains for our ego. Under the blows of nature, we will gradually come to this awakening. All egoistic fillings in this world disappear: there is no money, no honor, no power. A person loses everything, and this is a lesson from above. Only emptiness remains.

Therefore, we must correctly prioritize life, find out what is important and what is secondary in it. Being human means weighing what is more important, what is less important, and what is not worth wasting time on at all.

How To Jump Into The Light

608.02We need to understand that we do not see anything in the spiritual process, as if we have lost consciousness. We are absolutely cut off from the spiritual world and if we want to return to consciousness, we must fulfill what the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches: to detach ourselves from our egoism and integrate in someone else’s desire, outside of ourselves.

A foreign desire is the desire of the Creator, which is absolutely opposite to me, and therefore I cannot jump into it. How can I jump from myself into the Creator? To do this, I have been given a tool: the group.

The upper light spreads through four stages from top to bottom along the Sefirot—Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut—and inside Malchut builds the desire to receive. And in order to jump into the light, I have to climb the same steps back up.

If I gather a group and annul myself in front of them as Malchut toward the first higher Sefirot, then I express my desire to become like Keter. It turns out that I jump from my side to the side of the Creator with the help of the ten, the group. This is the whole patent.

Ten As One

938.04I cannot increase my desire, but only add the desires of others to it. This will be called the growth of desire when I learn from one, another, then a third.

All the growth of the desire is because we are going back to the one soul—Adam HaRishon (The first man). The more we attach the parts that broke as a result of the shattering, the sin of the tree of knowledge, the greater the desire becomes. If this desire includes ten parts, then we become as one.

We do not simply merge into one, but remain separate parts united by one force that surrounds us in an embrace and brings us together. Ten are united by one intention, one common goal, and each annuls oneself for the sake of connecting with the others.

Within them, the power of self-annulment, which is called restriction, screen, and reflected light, and their common desire to bestow to the Creator begins to work.

Then a sense of the upper force is manifested within these ten because they have created conditions for the revelation of the Creator among them. The Creator does not come to them from somewhere outside, but is generated from within the forces of connection on top of the forces of rejection.

In A Boat Through The Waves

943A ten can unite in such a way that it makes one common boat out of itself in which it will sail through the waves without fear of drowning in the sea of egoism. We want to build this boat from our mutual forces of bestowal and get into it together.

Waves are raging around our boat, sharks are circling, but we sit inside it and we are not afraid of anything if we try to keep together.

This boat is not built from ordinary material, not from wood or metal, but from our mutual guarantee, from our connection. In such a boat we can sail through the waves without being afraid of anything, because the force of the importance of the goal, of the importance of bestowing to the Creator, is keeping us afloat.

There Is One Creator Everywhere

963.8Question: Suppose the Creator is revealed in a specific ten that works correctly, let’s call Him Creator 1. Suppose the Creator is also revealed in another ten, let’s call Him Creator 2. Then there is a special event, like a convention, for example, in which the two tens unite as one and Creator 3 appears in them.

Can we say that the history of Creator 1 and Creator 2 is in Creator 3 or that this Creator is unique because the moment of unity between the two tens is unique?

Answer: The Creator is one everywhere. It is the only force that is revealed in every ten according to its unity.

The Creator has only one attribute, the attribute of absolute love and bestowal. You will reveal Him to the extent that you resemble this attribute.

Investing In A Spiritual Savings Account

528.02Question: A ten in which we engage in internal spiritual work and in dissemination advances toward the future, to the next state.

If I suddenly drop out from the ten and feel discomfort and shame, can this state be called hell, from which I will later be able to feel the taste of bestowal unto the group, or is it just a preparation for more serious emotions?

Answer: We can say that it is hell to some extent. Of course there is what we call more serious levels later on, and you are yet to be “fried” with shame. But it is a good thing.

Believe me, I have been in this line for 40 years and it is still a wonderful page in my life, my whole life in fact, and I don’t regret it at all. I am over 70 and many of my friends I studied with at university or had been in touch with have already passed away. But I don’t think that my fate is worse than theirs.

Do not turn down an opportunity to get closer to the upper laws, to the upper world. After all, you do understand that it is for good. Each day that you invest is an investment in your general spiritual savings account. It is saved for everyone and enters each one’s soul specifically. So do not underestimate any single lesson or any group activity, but carry on and advance.

How Can We Correct Evil?

934Question: What exactly is the correction of evil attributes, desires, yearnings, and thoughts? If such a desire and thought appears, how can I fix it in practice?

Answer: Only in the ten. I cannot do anything on my own.

We have the best, clear, and accurate system, so just start using it. Enter this system and you will see what it can give you, how participating and connecting in the ten starts immediately to correct each and every one. If you do that, you will not need any other corrections.

We do not know the spiritual laws, but by pushing ourselves to connect in the ten, we reach a clear and accurate form of the spiritual state and then the Creator is revealed inside it.

Adhering To The Ten

947Question: I have been studying for over two years now and only lately did I hear that once I am in a ten, I will have to be in it for the rest of my life.

Answer: No, we have never said anything like that. There is no problem, you can change tens, but the most important thing here is to try to work with one all the time.

I will say one thing only: when you work in a regular ten, you accumulate material to work on. You are committed to them and they are committed to you. That is, qualitatively speaking, you advance better this way.

It seems to us that this is a problem only in our world. Not really! The Creator places different attributes in you, all kinds of new conditions, shatterings and corrections according to the ten you are in and according to the way you relate to it.

So, on one hand, you must try to adhere to the ten so that you are able to totally melt in them internally, and on the other hand, you will be able to fully gather them like a mother who gathers her youngsters, externally. This is how you express your attitude to the Creator, because as a result, you will discover the Creator in the ten.
