Stretched Out Into a Line by the Light
Question: What is the meaning of the term
Dr. Laitman's Answer: A line is a scale inside me where I
build all the inclinations, thoughts, desires, and attitudes in a straight
manner. Everything that is now being revealed in me, in my Kelim,
becomes built in accordance to the Light that comes to me.
If there is a clear, precise agreement
between the Light that now shines on me and the vessels I put in order
according to the Light, this means I am built according to a line. That's
because inside of me there is a heap of qualities and the Light that comes to
me helps me build myself along a line. Previously I was like a sphere, and then
I asked the Light that comes in a straight form to shine inside me in the form
of a line and to put me into the same order.
The Surrounding Light (Ohr Makif)
shines all around. When I ask it for corrections that are built as a straight
line, the Light becomes "stretched out" into a line, as do I in conformity with
it. This transition depends on whether a person is able and willing to demand
this structure from the Light. The Light's action lies above knowledge, but if
a person receives the force to overcome, if he bestows and gives himself over
to the Light with full agreement, then the Light orders all the components of
his soul according to their importance.

Only the Creator Gives Us the Soul
Question: How should I relate to my wife to feel
the Creator between us?
Dr. Laitman's Answer: Try to make all the interactions
between you happen only in order to reveal the Creator between you. This
guarantees you absolute peace at home and is useful for every person even out
of purely egoistic interests.
This is a very effective means and it
correctly orients a person toward his entire life. The group and the friends
are still an artificial structure for him, all of humanity is perceived even
farther away, and the universe is felt as completely distant. One's wife is the
closest thing to him, as it is written, "A person's wife is like his body."
On the other hand, you suddenly reveal
that you have a partner in every regard! The Creator lets you start to feel
that against every movement you make, she also makes a movement. No matter what
movement takes place - in the mind, the heart, or a physical one, a synchronous
movement takes place against it. It's as if the Creator glues together two
separate parts in all the details and forms as He becomes revealed.
All we have to do is try to reveal the
Creator between us, the force that unites us and that we want to attain as a
result of living together. Otherwise this entire life will be a mere
Together the two of us desire to reveal
the force of unity between us - the third component which completes us so we
will become as one! When He unites us into one whole, we will include Him
inside us and will be one whole precisely because He is inside us and fulfills
This is called "Husband, wife, and the
Creator between them." He is present in everything that exists between them.
There is nothing other than that because the desire of each person is aimed at
the other. It's like the relationship between Zeir Anpin and Malchut:
He is entirely aimed toward her, and she toward him.
The Creator set apart all the
particular Sefirot of Malchut and made Hava (Eve) out of
them. That is why there is a precise correspondence between Zeir Anpin and
Malchut along the entire height of a spiritual Partzuf; they are
on one level, one against the other in eternal, unceasing union.
Neither has any qualities that are not
present in the other. However, the only way to attach them to one another is by
the Light of AB SAG, which comes and connects them by correcting one
of them toward greater bestowal and the other toward greater reception. In
order to unite, they both ascend into Bina, which is called Elokim,
the Creator, and He gives them the force of unity and then fulfills them.
They don't fulfill each other, but
their shared desires. That is how a "child" is born, being a result of the
union. It is the following spiritual Partzuf, a new state, described
by the verse, "The father (Aba) gives the white, the mother (Ima)
gives the red, and the Creator gives the soul." The Creator is between them,
and by fulfilling them He gives a soul to the new level.
