The Daily Page - 09-02-11

The Daily Page is a collection of excerpts taken from the daily Kabbalah lesson with Dr. Michael Laitman and Bnei Baruch

Was I Here Already?

 

Question: Why does Rabash reiterate the same points in his articles so frequently, as if walking around in circles?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: He never reiterates or repeats himself. The same words sound from different states, different levels of Aviut (coarseness of desire). He repeats the sentence at another, deeper level. After completing the first "circle" and discerning whatever was said for yourself, you move a degree deeper and then start the analysis seemingly from the same sentence, but closer to the truth, to the root.

We undergo the four stages of development, reach the speaking (human) degree, and on it go through the four stages again until we reach the degree of "human within human." All of it comes from Above, from the Direct Light (Ohr Yashar). And only the last degree, the fourth within the fourth, can respond with the Reflected Light (Ohr Hozer). It itself does not realize what it is responding to because on the way back, the development it goes through remains unclear yet again, until it reaches the root.

Only at the end do we understand the beginning and the entire path. We exist in an integral system  and until a person clarifies all the details, all the interconnections between the souls, and all the ways that affect them, he is constantly forced to balance himself. For this reason, one is constantly subject to changes.

The understanding comes only at the end of correction when the entire system becomes balanced for you. It is said about it: "Everyone will know Me, from the smallest to the greatest."

We Ruin Our Own Lives

 

In the Upper World there is only love and unity, but by the time it reaches our world it flips over because our world is opposite to the spiritual one. Absolute love descends to us from above, from the Creator, but here with our eyes, we see the worst of all worlds! Holy actions of bestowal in the upper world influence our egoistic desire here in this world, evoking opposite reactions in it. But the forces themselves were wonderful!

It's as if I came to you with love and gifts from the bottom of my heart wishing to share all of my treasure with you, but seeing how I love you, you are happy because you can use this and suck everything I have out of me. You think, "How wonderful it is that he's so kind because now I can rob him to the bone and destroy him."

Love and a kind attitude come from me, but you perceive it and use it in the completely opposite way. That's how the Creator gives us all of the opportunities and the goodness, but we use His good attitude by turning on our egoism. We activate it full force and do everything the opposite way!

The Creator is good, perfect, and unchanging. This is the only force that governs the whole universe. But inside of us, this good becomes revealed through actions and the form in which we are able to perceive His goodness. That is why in our world we see people killing each other and that we live in a world that cannot get any worse!

However, if I change my vision, then I will see the perfect world of Infinity, the upper Light filling the entire universe, the holy Shechina. But in reality, nothing has changed. I simply bought new glasses.
