I Came, But No One Was There!
people are not united with one another, then the Creator does not see them. It's as
if they don't exist, even if it is all of humanity.
Creator does not see each person individually, separate from others. He sees only
the connections among people, and He considers only the quantity and strength
of these connections. That is why the Creator said "I came, but no one was
same thing is true inside us. Our decisions do not arise inside the actual
neurons of the brain, but rather, upon the connections between the neurons-in
the synapses, the place where two neurons make contact.
is precisely these contacts, connections, and chains of connections in our
brain that constitute the basis of our thinking, the "human being" in
us. That is, a person's essence is not present in the actual elements of his
system, but in the connections between the elements.

Let’s Agree With His Plan
you remember the story about the good magician? It says
that stones, flowers, and animals were unable to give the Creator a sufficient
desire for the fulfillment that He wanted to bestow upon them, or to return His
love and bestowal. Only man can understand Him, feel Him, and be like Him. That
is why the two are able to attain unity with one another.
have to attain the same unity among us, just as this man-who incorporates
everyone within-did with the Creator. We have to understand that unity is the
best possible thing, and it is the reason why the Creator broke us into parts,
breaking us in order for us to unite among ourselves. He tells us: "If you
can become such great, beloved friends that you unite as one man with one
heart, then you will be able to understand Me, feel Me, and join Me!"
this requires tremendous work. The Torah talks about how the angels (meaning
the forces of nature) did not understand the Creator's plan before creation
developed to the final, fourth phase. Understanding comes only at this final,
human level, as it is written: "This field has been sown for me."
This means that everything is done for man's sake, but it is impossible to
understand the final goal until the desire develops to this level. That is the
meaning of the verse "Do not show a fool a job half done."
are forces inside us which are still underdeveloped and don't understand the
Creator's plan or the need for this development. Two points, the beginning and
the end of creation, are already set in advance and they determine everything
that will happen on the path between them. If we unite these two points, the
initial point and the final point, then we will immediately reveal the
Creator's entire program from beginning to end. It will be clear, along with
all its details. Then we will only have to implement it in practice, but we
won't have any questions or doubts about what is happening.
there is just one small addition that occurs inside this program: It is called
our freedom of will! This is the necessary effort that comes from man himself,
where man has to understand and desire of his own accord to become part of the
Creator's higher program.
let's agree with the program, just like the angels listened to the Creator's
explanation and agreed with it.
