A Chance To Bring Light To The World
When studying The
Zohar, we should feel that we are standing at the foot of Mount Sinai
opposite our egoistic desire, our nature. We have already checked and
been convinced that we are unable to be in control of our nature; we cannot
succeed with it even in our material lives.
According to the
Upper Plan, our nature is deliberately leading us to greater failures. This is
why we have to ask for the Light that Reforms, called the Torah. It is written,
"I created the evil inclination and I gave the Torah for its correction,"
because the Light of the Torah reforms us.
This is the state
of standing at the foot of Mount Sinai, where we feel hatred among everyone.
But we hate that hatred for one another, and this results in a tremendous
request because only the power of the Torah, The Book of Zohar that
illuminates us with the Light that Reforms, is able to change our nature. This
book will help us to open our eyes and heart and attain the spiritual
If we study The
Book of Zohar with this intention every day, then we will be at the foot of
Mount Sinai. As we approach the great event called "Zohar-Congress 2010," if we
unite all our efforts and concentrate all our forces toward this common
request, then there is a great opportunity for us to bring Light to the world.
The Torah Is Give Every Day: So Let’s Receive It!
Question: How should we
prepare throughout the day for reading The Zohar, especially now that
the Congress is approaching?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: We
should aspire to the Light that Reforms together. This is a very simple motto
where "being together" means uniting. But what are we uniting for? It's in
order for each of us to be influenced by the Light that Reforms, which will
correct our evil nature, namely, our lack of desire to unite.
Everything can be
found inside one notion. There is Malchut, the assembly of souls, and we
have to unite within it through a common demand to Yesod, asking it to
give us the Light of Correction and the Light of Fulfillment. That is all. This
should be our intention for the upcoming Congress.
If we think about
this and understand that our entire future depends on this unity because it
makes us similar to the force of bestowal, then we don't need anything else. We
should reread the story about the reception of the Torah at the foot of Mount
Sinai because we are in the same exact situation. It is written that every person
should see himself as standing at the foot of Mount Sinai and receiving the
The Torah is given
every day. But we will only be able to receive it if we all unite as one man
with one heart, standing opposite the Creator, who is also One. We will then
establish contact with Him and receive the Surrounding Light.
We have to prepare
for this state where our souls refuse their individual egos and connect
together in order to attract the Light of Correction. The Light will make our
unity happen, and inside it we will reveal the Creator.
