How Should One Perceive The Creator?

laitman_282.01Question: How should I perceive the Creator through a teacher: as a kind of mind or as a person?

Answer: Definitely not as a person! If such images arise, we must immediately dismiss them.

The Creator is a common force in all of us without exception. It unifies and fills us. It is a common field in which we exist. The quality of this field is absolute love and bestowal. Nothing else.

laitman_962.7Question: If I feel that many forces are working within and outside of me, how does this fit with the statement that “There is none else besides Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35)?

Answer: The Creator is an immense quantity of forces joined together into a single force field. But this is Him: one desire, one goal, and many forces that are connected together to bring everyone to a single state. Therefore, we are influenced by many forces, thoughts, and desires of various kinds.

Question: What difference does it make for the law of nature if I agree with its uniqueness or not?

Answer: The fact is that the thought of the Creator is to bring all creatures to a full connection with Him, to attain the same level of universal and integral existence as His.

Question: If representatives from Hollywood were to come to you and offer to make a movie about the Creator, what kind of picture would you show?

Answer: I would show a network of forces: how multifaceted and multidimensional they are. It is possible and necessary to talk about the Creator, gradually bringing awareness about Him to every person.

Question: In which circumstances can the Creator cut off the connection with me and take away the awareness that He manages everything?

Answer: Even if that happens, you must acknowledge that the Creator is doing this too. The main thing is to understand that it is from Him. Everything begins from that.

Question: Why do I get punished for my thoughts if they are not mine?

Answer: There are no punishments in the world! There is no reward either. There is simply learning, when a person is taught how to come to the revelation of the uniqueness of the Creator, because this is the only goal of our development.

Question: It is said that we were created according to the image and the likeness of the Creator. What do “image” and “likeness” mean?

Answer: This is not about a person in our world, but about the creation of Adam, that is, a system that fully resembles the Creator and exists according to His image and likeness.

Question: If the Creator manages me by sending me all kinds of thoughts, then does he bear responsibility for the consequences of the actions to which these thoughts that are sent by Him bring me?

Answer: Don’t worry about Him; He can bear responsibility for everything, even in regard to Himself.

Remark: Some people believe that the Creator you are talking about is not very reliable. And others say that if we pray to Him, He will help.

My Comment: But before He helps, He throws a mound of troubles and problems on them, and apparently, after that He helps. They have a good Creator, but He is somewhat inconsistent.

Hear The Revelations Of The Creator

laitman_547.05Question: You often say: “The Creator said.” What do you mean? Who did He speak to? When did He speak?

Answer: Naturally, the Creator has neither a mouth nor a tongue, nor vocal cords. We simply express ourselves in earthly language.

The Creator is a force. A force not even in the physical sense of the word, but in thought. There is nothing but thought. We constantly exist inside it. And the fact that it seems to us that we have physical bodies, properties, and qualities—there is nothing of that.

There is only thought.

Question: When I hear something from someone, can I say that through him the Creator speaks to me?

Answer: Yes. This is a different matter. In this way, He communicates with us.

But for this, you need to have a repeater, a re-transmitter, in you; when listening to a person, you begin to understand what the Creator wants to tell you. You must translate his speech into spiritual language. Then you will hear divine words from people, even from a street sweeper. He will not know what he is saying, and you will listen to the revelations of the Creator through him.

Does The Creator Have His Own “I”?

laitman_259.02Question: Does the Creator have a personality, His own “I”?

Answer: The Creator has His “I” and this “I” is the only one that exists in the entire universe. There is nothing else besides the Creator, or rather besides the thought, the plan of creation! And we exist in this thought, in this plan.

Question: If the Creator governs everything and gives life to all that exists, what does it mean to reach His level? Does it mean to become a source of life for everybody and govern everyone?

Answer: You are just a pipe, a conduit through which the thought of the Creator passes to the whole of creation.

If There Is No One Else Besides The Creator, Then Who Am I?

laitman_276.02Question: If there is no one else besides the Creator, then who am I and where am I?

Answer: You do not exist. You need to reach a state where there is no difference between you and the Creator and you absolutely do not feel that you have your own “I.” You merge with Him in thoughts, desires, and actions.

Question: Does the Creator also not have His “I”?

Answer: The Creator has no idea of His “I” since this is the only existing, initially eternal power, which is beyond time, space, and movement. Therefore, there are no such questions about the Creator because we cannot imagine in which coordinates He exists.

Perfection

laitman_439Question from Facebook: What is perfection?

Answer: Perfection is absolute harmony between the created beings and the Creator when they mutually complement each other in such a way that no imperfection is left between them.

Perfection is the Creator. However, it is not Him by Himself; rather, it is how we define Him in our sensations.

Question: What is a perfect person?

Answer: A perfect person is one who is completely similar to the Creator. The Creator is the absolute perfection of nature.

The general state of the entire universe that is in absolute connection in all its manifestations—that’s perfection. The source of this perfection that we attain is called the Creator.

Question: Does it mean that there is no perfection in our world?

Answer: Of course not! In our world, everything is opposite to perfection because one acts at the expense of the other. Our world is the lowest, the worst of the worlds. Only ascent above it is possible. There is nothing worse than this world.

Why Does The Creator Need Contentment?

laitman_600.01Question from Facebook: Why does the Creator need contentment? Isn’t He self-sufficient?

Answer: The same can be said about parents and children. You are connected with your children, you gave birth to them, they are very important to you. This is natural and it comes to us from the Creator in accordance with His attitude toward us.

Question: But isn’t our task to return this, to give Him contentment?

Answer: If a child correctly understands how to treat his or her parents, then he must act so that the parents will receive pleasure from him. And then he certainly will not be mistaken, because he otherwise will not have guidelines in this life. Therefore, setting himself up to give pleasure to his parents, he will always act in the most optimal way for himself.

And so are we with the Creator: giving Him contentment is a guideline to do the right thing for ourselves.

Communication With The Creator

laitman_565.01Question: What is the Creator’s jealousy? If I am a part of the Creator, how can I be jealous of myself and in regard to whom?

Answer: To the extent that you fail to identify yourself with the Creator, there is an opportunity for jealousy. The Creator is jealous. He wants us to look at Him only. If we stop paying attention to Him, His attitude toward us changes dramatically in order to re-establish maximum connection between us again.

Question: Does the Creator have any qualities or feelings?

Answer: A person assigns various behavioral qualities to the Creator. One cannot perceive the Creator as the absolute because one cannot grasp it. Therefore, with regard to us, the Creator manifests in such a way that we begin to feel Him as an interlocutor, companion, partner, teacher, the one to whom we can attach ourselves and be in mutual communication.

Question: How does a Kabbalist perceive others if he or she is communicating with the Creator constantly?

Answer: I will tell you a secret. There are no others. I exist alone.

Question: Isn’t that lonely?

Answer: No, it is not lonely. Everyone is inside of me.

Question: What does communication with the Creator consist of: questions, dialogues, cries, arguments?

Answer: Communication with the Creator is built on the search for constant and ever-increasing contact, until the point of adhesion. Everything else is perceived just as an incentive, information necessary for complete contact.

laitman_627.1Question: In the Hebrew language, there are different words for the Creator; what does the most common word for the Creator “Bore” mean according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer:  Bore is the Creator. The meaning of the word “Creator” is a generator. The concept of the “Creator” refers to all of creation and the word “generator” is used in relation to something in particular.

Question: According to you, the words “Creator” and “Nature” have the same meaning. Is it possible to say that the word “Creator” and the word “truth” possess the same meaning such that the truth corrects the soul and helps a person to become a partner with the generator?

Answer: Right.

Question: Why is the feeling of the Creator accompanied by an increased presence of sexual energy? Does this energy exist in everything?

Answer: Yes. When a person advances toward the Creator, toward bestowal through Kabbalistic closeness with the friends, an increased sexual desire simultaneously appears within him, which is a person’s basic desire. This is written about in Kabbalistic books.

Question: It is said that the Creator created us “in His image and likeness.” What is an image and a likeness?

Answer: The Creator created a desire to receive that was created with a tendency toward bestowal and love. Afterward, this desire “fell” from this state to the opposite state, to reception and hatred.

Question: Is humanity unconsciously in adhesion with the Creator?

Answer: Humanity is in full adhesion with the Creator but doesn’t feel it. Our task is to achieve a real feeling of the Creator, and to do this we must use the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Question: What is a “Minyan”?

Answer: A “Minyan” is a system for the unification of people who are divided into tens. It is derived from the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Question: Is there something that the Creator cannot do?

Answer: It is impossible to speak about the Creator like that, because He is a constant force. The Creator is the permanent characteristic of goodness and absolute bestowal.

Question: Is it possible to say that all of a person’s emotions are the Creator but in a hidden form?

Answer: Yes.

How Do You Know The Creator Is Working?

laitman_568.01Question: What qualities and manifestations of the Creator are described by Kabbalah? How can I recognize that He is operating, playing with me?

Answer: Start being more sensitive to listening, looking at, and thinking about what is happening to you and you will gradually discover the Creator.

The Creator is hiding. But this is not a game! We only speak about it this way .

Question: What does adhesion with the Creator mean? What are its signs? In life, there are moments of absolute happiness, for example, contemplating the beauty of nature. Is this adhesion with the Creator?

Answer: No. That is adhesion with one’s own egoism, which enjoys all sorts of psychological feelings and experiences.

Question: What does it mean: “looking at and listening to what is happening”?

Answer: It means trying to reveal the unified force that governs you.
