The Creators Work

 

Question: You said that The Zohar can only be studied when you become a part of the vessel of the common soul. How do I become a part of it?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: A person cannot do anything on his own; it is the Creator's work. You must only expect for Him to do this, meaning to desire, hope, and influence things in such a way that will make this happen, as much as you are able. You have to put all your energy into this and hope that the Creator's salvation will come. That is all we can do.

We are standing around Mount Sinai and screaming, as it is written, "The sons of Israel cried out from the work." The unity of the common desire attracts the Surrounding Light according to the principle of equivalence of form, because the Surrounding Light comes from one source. When we desire to become as one man in order to reveal the common vessel of the soul (the Kli), then it becomes revealed.

We have to prepare for the Congress in February so we will be able to unite our desire and reveal one common desire. It can only be revealed inside everyone together, inside the whole nation, which includes men and women. This is what we read in the story about the reception of the Torah at the foot of Mount Sinai, as well as the exodus from Egypt. It is written that this became possible thanks to the righteous women.

All of our desires have to unite, whether they are coming from the left side or the right, whether they are great or small, they have to become as one. We hope that when we undertake this mutual action, we will reveal a sufficient desire to be influenced by the Surrounding Light.

 

The Whole World Belongs To You

 

It only seems like there are many other people around you who are studying together with you. You see external desires around you only because your vision is flawed. But now imagine that they are all your inner desires, which you aren't able to control. It's similar to how you cannot take control over your evil inclination. This is why these desires seem external to you and you have to connect them together.

If you connect these qualities and control them, you will see that everything on the outside actually belongs to you. It is an imprint of what you have inside. Inside of you there are many qualities, desires, and aspirations, but you have no power over them. This is why you see many people outside of you and a whole world made of stars, planets, still, vegetative, and animate objects, people who act in opposition to you, and people whom you want to use for your needs, or even people you want to kill or run away from.

All of this is because you are built this way inside; this is why you see the world this way. If you receive a force from Above that will give you power over all your desires, then you will immediately reveal that the whole world belongs to you, that other people are not separate from you and are not outside of you at all. You will feel your own force inside each of them.
