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.

Program With A Good Ending

278.01Question: Is the Creator a good force?

Answer: Regarding creation He is kind. And not regarding creation, we cannot say anything about Him. We speak about Him as about Atzmuto—He by Himself—meaning, acting neither positively or negatively.

Comment: And like in a good fairy tale, of course, the good force always wins.

My Response: In fact, this fairy tale is kind, and it is not a fairy tale. This is a planned program of creation. Its ending is visible in the spiritual world. When we rise from the degree of our world, from things that are happening in the earthly senses, to a level higher than our perception, to the so-called “Lishma” (“for the sake of others”), then we see the future.

Now we are beginning to understand that the present and the future flow both in the forward and in the reverse direction. Therefore, when we ascend to the upper world, we can clearly see its future states. Kabbalists see this.

Question: Do they see it all in forces and not as it manifests itself in our world?

Answer: Of course. But they see it and tell us about it. Where did they get it from? How could they describe everything? From the fact that they discovered it all.

Relationships In Which The Creator Is Revealed

962.2Comment: There is a law: “What we do not attain, we do not call by name.”

My Response: And how can you name an object or phenomenon if you do not attain it? Therefore, the upper force is called the Creator precisely because of our attainment of Him.

Moreover, you can attain Him in one form, me in another, someone else in yet another, and so on. Each one in his own way. But, in principle, all the names of the Creator, in their gradual attainment by man, lead him to one single form where in the end all sensations of the Creator become abstract. You can give it such epithets as love, complete bestowal, upper, perfect. But in general, He does not have a name.

Question: So, people who came out of Egypt, wandered through the desert and recorded all the relationships that manifested between them, the whole range of their feelings and emotions—each record is a certain sensation of the Creator?

Answer: They recorded them like researchers. Realizing among themselves certain relationships in which the Creator was revealed, they wrote: “Such and such relationships equal such and such manifestations of the Creator. Such and such relationships equal such and such manifestations of the Creator.” And so on. This is the whole Torah.

Therefore, it is said that the entire Torah is the names of the Creator.

Question: There is an exact number of the names of the Creator: 72. What does it mean?

Answer: 72 (Ayin, Bet) is the manifestation of the Creator in the form of the light of Hochma, AB.

Comment: But there are a lot of different names in the Torah.

My Response: Each is a different gradation. There are main steps that you follow to reach the full revelation of the Creator and there are small, personal degrees.

The Unattainable Essence Of The Creator

237Question: The Creator, or Atzmuto (He Himself), sounds very egoistic. Is this the point of ultimate egoism in spirituality?

Answer: The point is that we attain the Creator from the bottom up to the extent that we become like Him. We are the absolute desire to receive and He is the absolute desire to bestow.

We reveal Him to the extent that we can make our desire to receive resemble His desire to bestow. But He Himself, Atzmuto, is unattainable. We only attain our resemblance to Him from 0% to 100%, that is, not the Creator, but ourselves in the corrected state.

We cannot feel Him. We can only feel ourselves when we become like Him.

Question: So, apart from my current sensation, the Creator does not exist?

Answer: Correct. The Creator is our subjective sensation of the upper force that formats us, manages us, and fills us. We cannot say anything else other than that.

Atzmuto—The Root Of Everything There Is

239Question: Am I correct in understanding that Atzmuto is higher than the world of infinity? If so, what secrets of the Torah is Kabbalah speaking about?

Answer: The fact is that everything I attain, including the names of the Creator, I attain to the extent of my similarity to something unknown.

But there is also something that I do not attain and that is the root of everything that influences me, called Atzmuto.
This is the reason that we reveal the world of infinity but not what is above it.

We study in Kabbalah that the light descends from above and creates the phase 0, Keter. Then comes phase 1, Hochma, which is already a vessel. Then there are the phases of Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut of the world of infinity.

Kabbalists attain all these phases, but they do not attain the actual source that the light descends from. They say that the light builds the phase 0, Keter. But where it comes from, what its nature is, we know nothing about.

We only know that “By Your actions we know You”

Therefore, Atzmuto, He Himself, is unattainable. Call it by one word—unattainable

Question: What then are the secrets of the Torah?

Answer: The secrets of the Torah are what we attain in the head of the world of Atzilut.

What Creator Are We Praying To?

239Question: If you want something, you start seeing it everywhere. I know this myself. For example, when you want to buy a car, you constantly see this particular make of car everywhere, and before that, you did not pay attention. There are many such psychological studies: suddenly you begin to see things that you did not value before, they were not in your field of vision.

It turns out that we do not see the Creator because we do not appreciate Him. He is not important to us.

The Creator is the quality of bestowal. Is it that bestowal is not important to us? Is it only the quality to receive that is important? Is only this valuable to us? Is that why we do not see Him?

Answer: If we received something from the Creator, we would not pay attention to Him.

Comment: But the whole world still prays to the Creator, and we remember Him when we feel bad.

My Response: This is just in case. We do not pray to the Creator, but to the golden calf—”people perish for metal.” Everyone prays to what they receive egoistic pleasure from.

Question: Which Creator should I turn to?

Answer: To the true one, to the property of bestowal and love. If you have the quality of bestowal and love for your neighbor, then you can turn it to the Creator. If not, you will not turn to the Creator in any way, He will be hidden from you.

Question: Do you want to say that the Creator created other people instead of Himself and gave me a field of activity? If I treat them with love, is it identical to the fact that I treat Him the same way?

Answer: Yes, you will gradually come from love for your neighbor to love for the Creator.
