The Whole World Is Not A Bitter Radish

 

We can remain either in the quality of reception or in the quality of bestowal and fulfill them both. Basically, only two forces govern the Universe, two forces of nature: the forces of reception and bestowal. One of them, the force of reception, is already present in us because we were born with it; so we consider it to be natural.

But in reality, there is nothing more natural than the quality of bestowal. However, the quality of bestowal isn't in us. Therefore, it seems unnatural to us; it seems as something artificial that has no relation to reality. Yet still, the only real existence is in the quality of bestowal, because all of creation, except our world, lives in this quality. Only we live in this tiny, locked, imaginary space-in the quality of reception.

Due to the fact that this space is closed and isolated from all the worlds and the Creator, we think that nothing exists beyond it. Like a worm who lives in a radish and believes that the entire world is just like the radish, we don't see beyond our world. The foolish worm doesn't understand that there is a big, luminous, sweet, and beautiful world outside of the radish. And neither do we.

This is why we must comprehend that the quality of reception in which we reside is miniscule and limited. It is given to us in order to know its opposite-the quality of bestowal.

The Reward Is The Light That Reforms

 

Question: Are the efforts I make my spiritual reward?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: The reward is the screen and the Light that Reforms. We cannot measure and evaluate our efforts. We must have the screen and the Light that Reforms. They are the only things we have to obtain. Everything else you can have in abundance; take it!

The Light that Reforms is the permit to receive. Much like a theater ticket which allows entrance to a particular show, the Light that Reforms allows one to take a specific portion. According to the amount of this Light that appears in you, you will be filled, and you will be merged with the Creator and the abundance that exists in the entire creation.

Take it all, but only in the measure of the Light that Reforms. Therefore, your reward is the Light that Reforms. We don't need to earn anything else. The Upper Abundance will fill our spiritual vessels (Kelim), the will to receive , but only when we obtain the Light that Reforms.

However, I need fulfillment not in order to receive pleasure, but in order to examine and measure how much I bestow. Even though my fulfillment gives me tremendous satisfaction, it is still measured in the Light of bestowal, the Light that Reforms.
