God is Nature

In Kabbalah, the words ‘God’ and ‘Nature’ are synonymous, and Nature is altruistic. To discover God we need to become like Nature.

United Press International (May 7, 2007): Individuality, wholeness and the relationship between them is the topic of Rav Laitman’s latest article. Rav Laitman discusses the egoistic nature of humans as individuals, the altruistic nature of Nature as a whole, and the present-day imbalance between them. The article’s purpose is to raise the understanding that our current state of existence – egoistic – needs a “shift” to a different, opposite state of existence – altruistic.

In the final paragraph, Rav Laitman mentions Kabbalah as the method that was specifically designed for guiding humanity to an altruistic balance with Nature in our times.

From the article:
Both science and Kabbalah acknowledge that the biggest, if not the only, problem with our world is us. Below are two examples of such states of mind:

“I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We’ve created life in our own image” (Stephen Hawking, British cosmologist and physicist).

“And in simple words we shall say that the nature of each and every individual is to exploit the lives of all other people in the world for his own benefit, and all that he gives to another is only out of necessity. Even in that there is exploitation, but it is done cunningly, so that his friend will not feel it” (Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag [Baal HaSulam], “Peace in the World“).

Thousands of scientists, judging by the latest reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, already state that we must stop working against Nature, as we have been doing for centuries, and begin to work in harmony with it. They explain that Nature already knows what to do and when to do it. If we only get out of the way, things will sort themselves out. Just as each body has its immune system, Nature has mechanisms that maintain its balance.

This balance is a dynamic equilibrium controlled by interrelated regulation mechanisms, in which Nature thinks not of particular elements within it, but of the whole system.
