So it all boils down to this, an infinite God resides in a finite container, namely you and me and everything we see (I like that rhyme,) when you and me, instead of being instinctive and only searching for pleasure or recognition, we do goodness and kindness and adhere to the ethics of God i.e. do not steal, hurt etc.
The truth is that if you look from the inside out, you will see the truth; but if you look from the outside in, you never will. For thousands of years, searching minds trying to discover God, reality, from the outside in have failed; so let’s look through the eyes of God revealed through Kaballah / Chassidus what reality is: 1. Everything is God 2. God created within God, three dimensions which consists everything “under” God, time – the essence of a universe, for it contains a past, present and future; space – the space in which the next dimension – souls or angels traverse in a universe. Generally speaking there are four universes: Atzilus, so called because it is close and in it the souls can see that all is really God, Beriah, a universe in which creations feel more of themselves and less of God. Yetzirah, even more so of Beriah, and Asiya, almost completely dark i.e. we see only ourselves and not God. 3. It is our job to transform darkness to light! We do this in three ways: A. One, through adhering to the laws of the Torah for this implants God or the essence of God currently concealed from the eye within the world, which is why God’s essence and his personality namely the infinite ability to unite opposing forces i.e. through God communicating through natural mediums like a message to someone (e.g. prophecy etc.) to man. B. Particularly when we need to overcome a selfish instinct to do a good deed this has an incredibly vast amount of Godly energy which manifests. C. By refining who we are, not as Darwinian apes, rather as souls, which as everything is God, hence certainly our Read more…
One of the most difficult concepts to grasp is that we are not heading towards a destination rather towards a relationship Men and women actually see the world differently Almost all women are heading toward a relationship, are in a relationship, desire a relationship in their relationship etc. etc. Almost all men have some kind of fantasy of grandeur in the direction they are subtly heading (hence midlife crisesis when their dreams don’t seem to have any chance of getting fulfilled etc.) God seems to be more of a woman than a man. In fact, the fact is, that Kabbalistickly we state, the end is from the beginning, the final thing God created is woman so God is basically a woman! Women have the power to create which is God’s power etc. etc. So what is this relationship God is looking for, and we are heading to? Imagine that you, yes you, could unite with God? Quite a feat! This is the beginning, middle and end of man’s destiny! You see, in the beginning the “lonely” God created man who sought grandiosity, only to see through two world wars his incredible stupidity and after having attained his sexual perversions and fantasies also realized that, that too has no reality, and hence he too began to search for God. So now he finds God and once man chooses God this cements the God, for in return God takes man on an infinite journey into the esoteric realms where his lot will infinitely discovering as much as man can understand.
Its like two pools, one hot one cold! Its not so hard to jump into a cold pool but then you get quickly “burned” and need to jump out! It is impossible to jump into a hot pool so you generally take your time putting in toe after toe until eventually you acclimatize to the water but ahhh! who ever wants to leave!
We are either a Merkavah, Gods car, in other words, like the forefathers, sublimating our intuition and understanding to God’s, or we are a composite of both positive and negative instincts i.e. like most of us are, namely, we love love, but we also have egos that get offended, however we would feel guilty if we did harm someone; or lastly, God-forbid when a person is so angry that all they want to do is harm and in this state the Divine soul “dissipates” and they are only left with their evil, which is the reason some people maim, abuse, because it makes them feel a bit better about their low self-image e.g. bullies, antisemites etc.
Things are designed in Heaven, manifest on earth, are mainly trials and tribulations of man’s inner heart – belief, trust in God
