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.

laitman_560Question: How is it possible to learn to approach or feel the intentions of the Creator in relation to me, to comply with His plans and not contradict them?

Answer: Only through the group.

Question: Why did the Creator create the created being? Why did He have a need for this?

Answer: The Creator wanted to give pleasure to the created being. We cannot understand this yet because we exist within the framework of time. But after entering the ladder of spiritual attainment, this will begin to be revealed to us.

Question: What exercises must a person perform to achieve the Creator’s form?

Answer: It is up to a person to dissolve into the right group by learning and carrying out the principles described in the articles of Rabash.

Question: Is the middle line the soul, the Creator Himself?

Answer: The middle line is what we attain through the correct unity of the right and the left lines, and the Creator is revealed within it.

Question: What is the Light? How is it revealed?

Answer: The Light is the characteristic of bestowal and love that fills our desire, and to this degree we feel the Creator.

Question: Are the higher power and the Light the same thing?

Answer: Yes. The higher power, the characteristic of bestowal, and the Light are the same thing.

Question: Do you raise our questions to the Creator so that He will answer them, as Baal HaSulam did with his students?

Answer: Absolutely. You can be sure that all of your requests and questions reach the Creator but in another form, not according to how you ask them. That is because there are many questions here that are personal and egoistic, that are not worthwhile for turning to the Creator in such a form; but in any case, everything is transferred.

laitman_547.04Question: Does the soul have volume?

Answer: The volume of the soul is measured by the degree of its bestowal above egoism. If a person’s egoism is great and he has the ability to transcend it and bestow through its help, it is valued as a great soul.

Question: How much time is required to ascend the spiritual levels if we are regularly studying the wisdom of Kabbalah? Is there an average or is it all individual?

Answer: There is no such measure. It is an individual ascent that depends solely on your efforts.

Question: Why is it that on one hand I know that the Creator exists and is hiding Himself from me even though I do not feel that, and on the other hand, I feel what happens to me directly and do not connect it with the Creator?

Answer: The Creator does not hide from you, rather it is you who are hiding Him. Everything that happens to you is done by the Creator.

Question: Where does the “self” come from? What is the reason for its creation?

Answer: The “self” is simply an egoistic desire, a feeling of self that is revealed through the four phases of the Ohr Yashar (Direct Light).

Question: Is it possible to develop and improve on one’s own?

Answer: No. If you are alone, you have no connection with the Creator.

Question: If the world exists only within me, do all of the sciences. including the wisdom of Kabbalah. also exist only within me?

Answer: Correct.

Question: I read that the Creator suffers much more than we do because He is forced to move us through suffering. How should I understand this?

Answer: Indeed, our sufferings are felt more in the Creator than in us because He is the totality of nature, while we are only a small part of Him.

Laitman_177.13Question: What is happiness?

Answer: Happiness is a state in which I can fulfill others and fulfill the Creator through others.

Question: The material world constantly pulls me in. Why did the Creator create it?

Answer: He specifically created it so that it would pull you in, so that you would oppose it and try to act such that the upper world would pull you in.

Question: What is the role of human diversity in this world?

Answer: We are fragments of one general system of the soul, Adam, and therefore we are different. From this state, we need to connect together again into one common general system.

Question: Is it possible to coax the higher forces so that I can be at the right time in the right place?

Answer: It depends on a person’s destiny, which is determined according to many parameters, especially his soul, how much it was developed in previous states, and how much the general soul that is called Adam requires his or her participation in the general correction.

Question: Do all the higher forces support us equally? Is it possible to create a connection with everyone?

Answer: There is one higher power, the Creator, and the rest of these forces are derived from Him; therefore, it is necessary to take account of Him alone. All the rest of the forces are called Malachim (angels). They have no freedom of choice.

Create The Creator Within Yourself

Laitman_509Question: What does it mean that we create the Creator?

Answer: In reality there is no Creator. The extent to which I can sense the upper Light and correct myself to be similar to it is the part within me that is called the Creator or Boreh (“bo-reh” – come and see).

The revelation of the Creator occurs according to my properties becoming similar to His properties. If there are no such properties currently within me, then there is no Creator within me.

Question: On one hand you say that we create the Creator within us. On the other hand, you say that the Creator does everything: all thoughts come from Him and He controls all people’s actions. There is a contradiction here. How can it be resolved?

Answer: It is very simple. As a matter of fact, the Creator acts the same way I act toward Him. He is the unchangeable force that fills everything, preserves everything within Him, and becomes revealed only to the extent that I move toward Him.

Why Isn’t The Creator An Egoist?

laitman_285.03Question: Is the Creator developing and changing?

Answer: The Creator is not changing. We are the ones who are changing relative to Him and we can ascribe these changes to Him. But in fact, there are no changes in Him. It is an absolutely pure and unchanging upper Light.

We can compare this to the sun we are looking at alternately with and without sunglasses, but the Light does not change when you do this.

Question: Why isn’t the Creator an egoist?

Answer: It is because He is perfect. It is a force that consists of the property of bestowal and love because it is its nature. Since it does not have a desire to receive or enjoy at the expense of someone or something, it cannot be negative.
