Recognizing The Greatness Of The Opportunity

 

Let us remind each other of and be inspired by the greatness of the spiritual goal and the environment that aspires to it; let us appreciate the unique opportunity for free choice that we have been given. How many people in the world can act freely? If everyone blindly follows the commands of their nature, then no one truly "acts." If I'm completely governed from Above, then "I" don't exist, as it is said, "I came and there is no one."

There are billions of people in the world, but they don't exist, as it were, since not one of them acts freely. Without a person with free will, there are no worlds; there is only the World of Infinity. With regards to the Creator, nothing else exists. Only a person who carries out a free action exists. Imagine this picture of the world: total emptiness; only a few desires that rose and became capable of performing free actions protrudes there.

You, too, have been given an opportunity to acquire freedom and become Human. May we recognize the greatness of this unique opportunity.

A Prayer That Will Be Heard

 

The Upper One is in a constant state of perfection; it needs nothing but bestowal. It is not something that senses or changes its mood. Rather, it is a system, an unchanging law that has been set in place. To the extent that you align yourself with this law, it influences you positively.

However, if you do not align yourself with this system, if you are not similar to it, it acts upon you negatively. Our initial and ultimate states in creation are predetermined, and they must be completely realized regardless of whether you agree with or resist it, understand it or not.

The lower one (you) has only one good opportunity: to participate in this process consciously and "raise" the desire for it to the Upper One. This desire is what we need to reach; we need nothing but the desire! We also need to know how to raise this desire to the Upper One. The Upper One is in a state of perfection; it is always ready to give to the lower one everything required.

The lower one is a collection of all the souls, while the Upper One is One Light, One Thought of Creation, and One Force. If the lower one wishes to resemble the Upper One-meaning, it is willing to unite and become as one, it is able to raise its desire to the Upper One. The Upper One hears no other requests except this one. This is called a prayer, MAN, a desire to become a single whole.
