An Instrument For The Revelation Of The Creator

laitman_934Question: If I try to see the Creator behind everything, does that mean that I am in contact with Him and that I am influenced by the upper force?

Answer: It means that you are striving toward the Creator but not that you feel Him. Your views may be wrong. The only way to see the Creator is through a certain instrument, which you have to assemble together with the friends. It is the ten, ten people with whom you connect as a single whole in your desires, your intentions, and your thoughts in order to attain the Creator.

At the same time, all ten people must totally annul their egoism in order to be one whole. Then, you will begin to feel the Creator in the central point of this connection. It is as if you create a lens that brings together all ten rays, concentrates them in its center, and then you see the Creator through the collective focus that you have created, and not any other way.

So, if you want to pray to the Creator, you must do it in the ten. If you want to feel the Creator, you must be aimed at Him and yearn for Him in the ten. Everything is in and through the ten. The Creator does not feel anything less than a ten. Ten people who are connected between them by their yearning for the Creator is an instrument through which you can begin to reveal the Creator.

The Prayer Of Ten Hearts

laitman_934It is important that the prayer comes from all of the ten and does not remain my personal prayer. If my prayer reaches the hearts of my friends, then it will certainly reach the Creator.

If the prayer does not pass through every heart from the bottom up, from Malchut to Yesod, and from it to Hod, and further through Netzach, Tifferet, Gevura, Hessed, Daat, Bina, Hochma to Keter, then it will not reach the Creator. After all, the Creator is Keter.

Therefore, we need to work on our connection so that everyone can reach the Creator.

After all, this is possible only by turning to the hearts of the friends and wanting to penetrate into every heart. As pieces of kebab are strung onto skewers, so my prayer pierces every heart, gathering them together, and we bring all of these hearts to the Creator to correct and fill them.

It seems to me that the friends are outside, separate from me. But, in fact, there is nothing on the outside; they are all my internal properties only organized in such a way that I see them as external with respect to one of my qualities, which I consider to be my “I.”

Therefore, I need to connect with these supposedly external properties so that they all become mine. Thus, I will gather together all of the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human desires into one desire, and I will reveal that everything is inside of me.

Therefore, in the ten, there must be one, loyal connection. I cannot turn to the Creator if I have not connected to nine friends, that is, to nine particles of desire through which I can turn to the Creator or receive from Him. Without them, I am not even able to direct myself to the Creator; it is impossible to go from Malchut to Keter without going through all the hearts of my friends.

What Gives The Effect Of Spiritual Glue?

Laitman_524.01Question: The essence of the wisdom of Kabbalah is the unity of desires, intentions, thoughts, and souls. What is the main tool that gives the effect of spiritual glue between them? What connects them?

Answer: They are connected by our desire, when we in the ten want to be together so much that we feel a mutual yearning, interaction, and mutual thoughts, that is, the manifestation of a completely new feeling of reciprocity that no one had before.

It is also not yet spiritual, but it is already the manifestation of a single field that the Creator blesses. And then we will connect more and more closely until in mind, in heart, and in intention, we begin to feel how we want to help each other, to manifest within each other, and to connect with each other.

Then, by establishing this network of connection, we will feel that the Creator is there, as if we caught Him in this network like a huge dolphin.

Love One Or Ten?

laitman_938.02Question: Is it enough to love your neighbor and satisfy his desires in order to achieve the goal?

Answer: It’s enough if I love the ten. To love one’s neighbor is a kind of selfish concept. But if I join the ten, try to connect with my friends, and cancel myself before them, if I completely set myself up so that I try to get closer to them all the time, then I am doing my job.

I begin to feel the Creator’s conversation with me, what He does in me: increases hatred, removes it, constantly goes through my properties, and in this way I feel it.

Question: We are arranged in such a way where we feel confident only when everything around us is logical and explainable, when the presumed is confirmed by the real, when the desired coincides with the possible. How does one work in the ten if this doesn’t happen?

Answer: We must set a clear goal for ourselves, watch how we can connect with it, and have many discussions in the ten about it and how to unite in the progression toward the goal. Everyone turns into one person, into one image in the goal toward which you progress.

See How I Will Make Myself A Man!

Laitman_138Yesterday, we opened our souls to each other and felt together in one heart. And this morning, no one feels any connection with friends in the higher ten any longer, feels no need for the science of Kabbalah, the Creator, unity, and the spiritual path, and wants only to sleep like an animal.

Now I need to accept by faith above reason that I received this state from the Creator; there is none else besides Him. It is only the Creator playing with me, sending me all kinds of states, and now He has made me feel like an animal.

Moreover, the animal state is the best of all because it is from it that we need to rise to the degree of man. And if now I am on the stage of an animal it is a sign that I have finished working on my previous state and corrected it. Now I am falling into the state of an animal in order to raise myself again to the step of a person with new qualities.

Therefore I rejoice that I became an animal because now I am starting work anew at a new level. And so penny by penny accumulates a large sum. Therefore, I start the day in a good mood, full of strength, and declare to the whole world: “Watch how I the animal will make myself a man!”

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 2/9/20

Laitman_630.2Question: Is the intensity of the impact of the light the same on each level or does the intensity increase according to the height of the level?

Answer: Of course. The point in the heart awakens a stronger impact of the light unto itself according to its need to develop, which is determined by its environment.

We study in Talmud Eser Sefirot about this in a very accurate manner. The five lights NRNHY change on each level according to its intensity and the need to nourish the soul.

Question: How can we determine whether the point in the heart has awakened? What does a person feel?

Answer: If a person feels a very strong desire to understand what he is living for, what there is beyond his own life and death, how the world and the universe are organized and built, who manages it, why, how and for what purpose, if he feels that without an answer to such questions he cannot continue to live a quiet peaceful life and that he cannot enjoy anything in life, then such a serious attitude to the meaning of life should bring him to the wisdom of Kabbalah and show him where he can find the answers to these questions.

Question: We know what it means to receive in the corporeal world. In what sense does this receiving differ from spirituality?

Answer: Spiritual receiving is filling in altruistic attributes. To the extent that I am in the state of love and bestowal, I begin to feel the attributes that fill me.

Question: We gather in a ten and begin to raise our soul in it until we feel ascent and adhesion and as a result the one soul of this ten is created. What’s next?

Answer: Next, these tens will begin to gather, and thus you will begin to increase and unite the general soul until it reaches its ideal initial state in which everyone comes together into one general structure where the Creator is revealed in a perfect manner.

Question: Is it true that the Torah is a book of codes that has four levels of study?

Answer: Yes, that’s true. The Torah is a book that is not understood at all. It does describe everything as a historic story, but in fact it is not a historic story. There are four levels of attaining the Torah and each is deeper than the other. The wisdom of Kabbalah engages in the revelation of all these levels, of the gradual entry to the code of the Torah.

What Can We Give To The Creator?

laitman_938.01Question: What can a man give to the Creator through his friends?

Answer: First, all friends must agree with him on this action of surrendering themselves to the Creator.

It consists of the fact that they connect with each other and turn into one vessel where they feel Creator, where He can be clothed.

We turn into Nukva, the female property, relative to the Creator, who is the masculine property, and we want the Creator to cloth in us, fill us, and rule over us. We are ready to surrender ourselves to the power of bestowal.

The Transformation Of The Point Into A Spiritual Partzuf

laitman_934Question: Is unity in the ten an addition of attributes in each member to the ten?

Answer: In unity, you aspire that the whole ten should be felt as one whole and that all your yearnings for the Creator, not for your own corporeal attributes, should connect at the center into one point. It is at this point that you will reveal the Creator.

Question: Will there be ten attributes at this point?

Answer: Yes, then this point will create the spiritual Partzuf.

Learn Integrative Development From Nature

laitman_761.2Question: When you speak about nature, you treat it as something rational, and this is already close to the terms “Creator,” “God,” “higher mind.” How can you explain this from the point of view of Kabbalah?

Answer: Kabbalah refers to nature as a higher mind that has its own laws. This system in itself is in absolute equilibrium and seeks to bring our entire little egoistic nature to be like it, to equilibrium.

Therefore, as soon as we turn off the path of full interaction of all parts of nature—inanimate, vegetative, animate, and speaking—then immediately some bad shifts and negative manifestations occur in nature.

They can be small, so small that we do not pay attention to them, but they can also be huge, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and in the past, even large meteorites striking the planet and so on.

We are gradually moving toward good relations among us, but in an unkind way, forcibly complying with the laws of nature, integration, and communication. Therefore, we go forward, as they say, pushed by the stick. Fortunately: we receive blows and slightly change our path, another blow, we also change our path.

Egoism constantly wants to turn us to the left; nature hits us, we turn a little to the right, and we are in such a state when we balance to the right or to the left. So, humanity is constantly advancing to happiness by being pushed from behind.

But now we are already starting to realize more that we are at an impasse. We have gone through all stages of the egoistic development of society, and today we can realize that we cannot come to anything good with our egoistic nature.

Mankind has almost realized the impasse of its natural development. It must learn integral development from nature because we are all in the same system. We need to study this system and follow it.

Question: Today it is not a problem to find materials on the global nature of our world, on the relationship of humans with nature. It really needs to be studied. But still, what can you say about the coronavirus.

Answer: This is the same. After all, our movement to be isolated from the common global nature leads to such consequences as the manifestation of all kinds of viruses, which inevitably return us to a normal state.

The Creator Sees Me Through The Ten

laitman_938.03It is impossible to get out of a descent alone; the more advanced the state becomes, the more difficult it is to understand, accept, and rise above. The only way is to ask your friends for help. Only if I bow to them and implore them can I get out of the descent with them.

The Creator, while giving me a burdening of the heart, does not take me into account alone, but gives me the burden of the whole ten through me. Therefore, one person is not able to do anything because the Creator refers to the whole ten in general and, after the ten, to each of us: to one, another, the third, etc.

Therefore, do not be scared when a heavy load falls upon you; it falls on you so you will receive help from the entire ten. Share this load with everyone and you will see that it is not heavy at all. Only one thing is difficult: to understand that through me this burden is given to the whole ten and that I must join my friends.

If a 200 kg stove falls on me then, of course, I won’t be able to hold it. If each friend in the ten lifts 20 kg, then it is already quite feasible

The Creator never sends a burdening of the heart intended for me alone but always for the whole ten. He doesn’t see me alone, but looks only through the ten, only in this form.
