Why You Are in Reality Inside-Out

Why You Are in Reality Inside-Out

Everything that is solid, spatial & global only seems to exist, but in truth, these are just our own sensations.

When we see a wide world before us, we don’t see it in reality, but only within ourselves. In other words, there is a sort of a photographic machine in our hindbrain, which portrays everything that appears to us and nothing outside of us. – Baal HaSulam, “Preface to the Book of Zohar,” Item 34

  

Use Your Egoism for Infinite Pleasure

Use Your Egoism for Infinite Pleasure

Selfish desire + pleasure = fleeting pleasure. Desire to fulfill others + pleasure = unlimited pleasure.

Once we expand our capacity to receive, we will feel life and existence based upon a new condition–we want to use our lives as a means to help us pass pleasure on to others, to bestow, to love, and to come out of ourselves–and the pleasure ahead is billions of times greater. Even now you are filled with Infinite Light. But you neutralize this Light with your egoism, because when the Light of Infinity reaches a desire, it immediately turns off, as though it short-circuits between two opposite ends that have no resistance between them. You have to use your own egoism as that resistance, and then you will feel the pleasure.

Know How to Handle Nature’s Greatest Power

Know How to Handle Nature’s Greatest Power

There is no perceptible reality at all outside you – there is only constant Upper Light. The entire world is inside you.

There is a very serious warning that it is forbidden to use the method of Kabbalah in the wrong way. The power of the Light is the greatest power in nature. We have to know how to use it. There is Light in all the Kabbalah books, and if a person uses them the wrong way, instead of the potion of life he receives the potion of death. It is a very strong weapon that is like radiation which can be used beneficially in different techniques and in medicine, but which can also kill. Fire too can be destructive on the one hand while on the other it can help us and warm us.

What Does It Mean to Discover the Zohar

Start Digging for Your Treasure

Discovering The Zohar means discovering your inner world and your unlimited potential.

Start digging inside yourself and look for the qualities that The Zohar names, as though you’re in the dark with nothing but a candle. Just as a child gradually begins to perceive his environment, so this new inner world will gradually begin to form within you. I must delve into myself and there discover which inner quality each word alludes to. This is how The Zohar changes us when we search for what is written inside of us. After all, a person is a small world.
