The Truth Lies Among Us

 

Question: How can we be sure that we are on the right path?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: The only way to check this is through the connection between us. The solution to all questions lies in the place where the breaking occurred.

Are we coming closer to correcting it? This is the entire issue. If I see that I am uniting with the spiritual sparks of my friends, that from one day to the next we are becoming more and more united, that our desires for the quality of bestowal among us are becoming more precise and consolidated, this means I am on the right path.

What matters is the extent to which I have the right idea of the picture. My demand to the friends comes later. First of all I have to check my own attitude: Do I see that the solution to all my problems, questions, and requests resides there, inside our unity?

The Environment is My Soul

 

The environment is not just the entrance ticket to spirituality and not something that accompanies me on the spiritual path; rather, it is my soul - the place where I reveal my connection with the Creator. The environment becomes my soul, my World of Infinity when I no longer differentiate between its inner and outer desires (Kelim): myself and others and the worlds. Rather, I experience all of this as one desire (Kli) and one Light.

For example, suppose I ascend to the level of Netzah of the World of Beria. What happens to all the levels I have gone through? They don't exist inside me in the form of degrees since I already went through them. Rather, they exist in the form of a circle because I have corrected all of these desires.

When I ascend up the ladder of degrees inside the group (our unity), then everything I have already gone through on the ladder of degrees becomes attached to me; it becomes my own. On the other hand, everything I still have to go through remains scattered and divided into many disorderly forces.

That is why the environment still seems like a means to me. And it seems like this is what is written as well, "From love for the creatures to love for the Creator." It seems like the Creator broke us in order for us to reveal Him. But what does it mean to reveal Him? We reveal Him inside the same broken vessels (desires, Kelim) by correcting them. When these desires take on the form of bestowal, that form of bestowal in them is called "the Creator."

Therefore the environment is not a means, but precisely the space I have to put together and then live inside it. The right form of this system, the connection between the souls, is my soul, and its inner form is the Creator whom I reveal and thus unite with Him into one.
