Multiple Forces Or One?

533.02Comment: In his article “The Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah,” Baal HaSulam writes about the order of cause and effect in the descent of the upper forces. We talk about multiple forces although we always say that there is only one force and that “There is none else besides Him.”

My Response: The Creator is the single positive force that shattered into many other forces. They are sometimes called angels and sometimes forces. In general, they have many names, but they are merely forces of the Creator.

“There is none else besides Him” means that even if you see forces that oppose Him, forces that seemingly harm the Creator and negate His uniqueness, His benevolent providence, it is only because He wants it and does it on purpose.

When A Higher Power Puts On Matter

744Question: You said that the Creator is just a force without matter, and we must somehow create matter for it ourselves. What are these laws that will manifest there?

Answer: Power without matter is the Creator. When this force is clothed in matter, in desire, according to the law of similarity, then it becomes, as it were, material. Although this is not matter, but simply a person’s desire that becomes similar to the property of bestowal. Therefore, Adam consists of these two properties, the desire to receive, which creates out of himself the external form of the desire to bestow.

Adam and Eve are two forces that, by thus interacting with each other, make up the system called Adam. Adam has two parts. The feminine part is included in him as matter, and he shapes this matter under the likeness of the Creator. That is why it is called Adam, which means “like the Creator.” This must be achieved by each of us.

The Creator Is The General, Integral Force

522.01Question: According to what you say, the Creator does not exist. If so, to whom are we raising MAN?

Answer: I mean that the Creator people believe in does not exist. The Creator is the common force of nature that urges us to unite. This is its sole purpose.

So, the correct definition of the Creator is that it is the general, integral force within which everything exists. The wisdom of Kabbalah says that this force initially shattered everything that was created, and now the creation gradually yearns to come together like a jigsaw puzzle.

Every particle must take its rightful place in relation to others, and in their mutual integration they will discover the higher force more and more. Therefore, if I say that the Creator does not exist, I mean: do not try to find Him in anything else but the force of connection. He does not do anything else and there is no need to hope for anything else.

Does The Upper Force Need Us?

292Question: Does the upper governing force need us?

Answer: The upper governing force needs us, because in this way we feel its attitude to us. It wants us to become similar to it from the opposite to it, as it created us, to become as it wants to see us. – as she wants to see us, from the opposite of it – as it created us.

By transforming ourselves into the ones similar to it, we begin to reveal this force, understand it, draw closer to it, and literally adhere to it.

Question: Does it receive something from this?

Answer: No, it does not need it at all. Everything is done only for our sake because the upper force is absolute goodness.

Question: Who does this power come from? Is there anybody behind it?

Answer: There is a root that is not attained, but its actions are attained; the science of Kabbalah speaks about it. It teaches us to attain the actions of the Creator, but not the Creator Himself.

If There Is No God, Then What Is There?

610.2Question: A question that worries a lot of people was asked: “Why do you say that you do not believe in God? Moreover, you say that there is no God. As I understand it, this is a special trick, because then you keep saying: ‘The Creator, the higher power, and nature.’ You’ve got us all confused.”

Answer: That’s right. I didn’t confuse you, it was you who were initially confused and I want to untangle you. But in order to unravel this, we need you to see how confused you are. Then you will understand how to get back from imaginary ideas to the truth.

If you and I try to give some general definition of what God is, you will find that the God that you imagine now does not exist. And what I’m saying is there.

It is nature, it is the upper force of nature. The difference is very big: Do I relate to the whole creation, to God, to the Creator, to nature, as to something that exists in reality, physically, which I must reveal for myself, sense in my feelings? Or is it something so amorphous that I just say, “God, My God,” and nothing more. We have yet to determine this.

Question: Still, you can tell people whether there is a God or not?

Answer: The single force of all nature in all worlds, including our imaginary world. It is called “olam demyoni” – “imaginary world.” So, the upper force, which includes absolutely everything and naturally also us, is called the Creator.

Question: And how should we interact with Him, with this nature, with the Creator?

Answer: This is what Kabbalah teaches. You have absolutely come to a straight line: “How can I still turn to the Creator? What should I do? How can I find Him? How can I balance my state in relation to Him? And in general, what should I do with my life? How should I live? What if I suddenly get something for this?”

And here we need to understand what the Creator is. Kabbalah tells you how to act so that you do not feel bad. That’s all.

Question: So a person will not feel bad?

Answer: Yes. And why do you pray?

Comment: So that I feel good and everyone around me will feel good, my relatives, my children.

My Response: We are talking about actually feeling the control panel of the world and starting to really control your destiny. This is given to man. And the upper force that we know, the Creator, wants us to come to this.

Question: The God that many others think about, is He not there?

Answer: He is not.

Comment: And there is a God, as you say, that is called…

My Response: The Creator, the upper force. This is the highest force of nature, which includes all of nature. The Creator Himself is God. Nature itself is God. Only it is not the nature of our world, but an all-encompassing one, which we can already reveal to the point that we can merge with it, with this nature. We can even govern It. The Creator wants us to be at this level, so that we become partners with Him.

Question: What do you mean by the word “nature”?

Answer: I mean all the worlds. Our world doesn’t even count, of course. All worlds, which include five worlds, which in general are included and governed by one single force, one single law, is this law of unity that is the Creator.

Question: Is there a God for you?

Answer: There is a Creator for me. It is the one who created everything and also you and wants you to fulfill your destiny—to reach His level, to be like Him.

Therefore, a person is called “Adam” from the word “Domeh” – “similar” to the Creator, the quality of bestowal, the property of creation, and the quality of governing all the worlds. This is the state a person must achieve, absolutely every person in our world! Is it incomprehensible to the mind? Yes. But every person will come to this. Whether he wants to or not.

Why Nature Is Called The Creator

226Question: Your work Basic Concepts of Kabbalah describes in great detail the methodology that brings one closer to the Creator.

But, many modern managers and supervisors are quite far from the concept of the Creator and His influence over our reality. Could there be a fundamentally different approach here?

Answer: Let’s not call all this the Creator but nature. It’s the same thing. The Creator is what we call the upper governance because it is not devoid of consciousness in the sense that it has its own purpose or its own plan. So we say, “This is the upper force, the Creator.” After all, He has a plan, a program that is clearly executed. In every other regard you can simply call it “nature,” a vast, perfect nature that controls each of its parts and propels them to attain its perfection.

Therefore, we can remove the terms “Creator” and “Kabbalah,” and write it in absolutely clear, technical, scientific terms.

I would be very happy about this because I do not consider myself a religious person because Kabbalah has nothing to do with religion or Judaism, it talks about nature. A lot of Kabbalists were from various nations of the world.

In contrast to the attitude to nature that exists in science, here the attitude to nature is that is has a plan, a goal, and the forces of the implementation of this plan. That is why we call nature the Creator.

The Whole Universe Is A Manifestation Of The Names Of The Creator

239Question: It is said: “He and His name are one.” He is the highest power, the Creator. And what is the name?

Answer: His name is the state between us in which the Creator will manifest Himself. It is called a name because in this way we begin to understand and feel Him. In the same way as you understand a person when you talk about him, call him by name. After all, you can feel him.

Question: Every time we build a certain connection, does the Creator manifest and we give Him that name?

Answer: Yes. Therefore, we say: “So-and-so, so-and-so,” that is, we give Him different names. This is why it is said that the Creator has many names. Practically the entire universe is just the names of the Creator, His manifestations.

Question: So, all the words in the Torah are His names. Is the name a manifestation of the Creator in the connection between us?

Answer: Everything that is written in the Torah is a manifestation of some feelings and properties between people, the purpose of which is to achieve a correct, good relationship with each other. Then they feel, they manifest the Creator between themselves, and write about it.

Everything Is Perceived In Feelings

962.2The Creator is a quality of the upper world. His main characteristic is the quality of bestowal.

We cannot say who He is or what He is. We only speak about the way we perceive Him. To the extent that I begin to feel the quality of bestowal, I begin to attain the Creator.

In the same way, I cannot say anything about a table, for example. I can say that it appears to me in my feelings as such and such. The same is true about the Creator.

Therefore, the Creator is called Bo-Reh. Bo, come, that is, somehow change yourself, and Reh, see. Bo-Reh, come and see. In other words, everything is perceived precisely in our feelings.

The wisdom of Kabbalah works in such a way that it forms within us the quality of bestowal, and to the extent that a person already feels it within himself, he begins to feel the Creator. He has new tools, the so-called Kelim, vessels, with which he feels the Creator and the upper world.

A Ten And A Teacher

942Question: During the lesson, do we first need to internally connect to the teacher or to the ten, or does it have to happen simultaneously?

Answer: You need to connect to the ten so that you and the ten are one whole, and then you can listen to the teacher and implement in the ten what he says.

The ten is the main thing, but in order to know what to do in the ten, we need a teacher.

The Name Of The Creator

545Question: When do I reveal the name of the Creator, during a descent or during an ascent?

Answer: Every state I am in is made of a desire to receive and the light that fills it.

Their coupling, i.e., the vessel filled with the light, is called the name of the Creator.

The name of the Creator is a state I attain and I call the Creator by a certain name according to that state. The fact is, He always remains Atzmuto, He Himself.
