Imagine a world that is not what you see but is what it is

 

 

There are basically three realties that can and do exist

 

The first is the world born into, which is natural

 

As the Alter Rebbe teaches us, nature is repetitive miracles but due to their repetition we see not a miracle but nature concealing a supernatural event, and allowing us to not even see the hand in the glove.

 

The second is miraculous – now miraculous clearly shows the hand outside of the glove – infrequent, but amazing nonetheless.

 

It is usually at this level that spiritual people stop.

 

But there is a third, far higher level, a level in fact, that unifies both nature and miracles, this is God Himself.

 

For to associate God to a miracle is to limit him to a certain type of existence and to limit God would be a grave mistake.

 

God in fact most closely resembles a human.

 

In fact in Kabbalistic terms we call God at times Adam Kadmoin, Primordial Man.

 

Not that God is God-forbid limited, rather it refers to the fundamental greatness of the human specie, namely the ability to discern.

 

In other words, to see God as another physical albeit miraculous or even spiritual but limited to the supernatural object, is to miss out on any rudimentary understanding of God.

 

God is neither physical, NOR IS HE SPIRITUAL!

 

Rather God is.

 

As he explained himself to Moses upon his request, “I am who I am.”

 

In other words, God chooses to do what he wants.

 

Imagine a person who makes choices.

 

His primary existence is his soul, his essence, his very being.

 

Once that reality is there (which in God has no precedential cause, unlike in humans and everything else) then there can be choices.

 

Now in God’s reality, he chose to create, as the Kabbalists teach us, using the reason-d’être of uniting two opposites – to place the highest, namely his infinite infinity, into the lowest, namely into you and I.

 

In other words, there are actually three stages to reality – the first was the natural world we were born into, which actually concealed the truth of God (and hence everything, for everything comes from God and hence is merely like a computer game within the mind of its Creator) existence.

 

 

The second is the spiritual, which likewise conceals God and hence though it may be what is termed in Kabbalah ratzu, a spiritual experience, is not God as well!

 

Rather the third dimension which he has begun to reveal now, namely a dimension in which the highest, namely his infinite infinity into the lowest, namely into you and I,

gets revealed.
