How to Enter Noah’s Ark

How to Enter Noah's Ark

Noah, the well-known character from the Torah, represents a stage in one’s spiritual development, when one realizes one’s egoism is evil, and that the person cannot save himself from it because it is his entire nature.

One then understands that only the higher force, outside the person, can make a change. This is why the person builds the Ark. In other words, in response to the person’s appeals, the Upper Light creates the property of Bina (bestowal) in the person, and then he remains inside it so that his egoistic desires and properties will no longer rule over him. When he enters the Ark, he ascends above egoism and enters the realm of bestowal, isolating himself from his egoism, his nature.

Today every one of us and the entire world as a whole is beginning to feel that we are in a threatening state – the state of Noah before the flood. We are being threatened by the inner (individual) and outer (worldwide) flood (egoism), which we have brought upon ourselves and cannot overcome on our own.

The salvation from the flood is to hide in the Ark, meaning that for every person and for everyone together to acquire the property of bestowal, to ascend above our egoism. Everything will then reach harmony, just like all the species of creatures that were in the Ark, and we will make the transition to renewed life.

How to Enter Noah’s Ark

Everything comes from above, from the same source, but if a person tries to set a strong environment on the right side to support him, by this he realizes his freedom of choice. And then on the left side, Nature organizes disturbances.

Caught between these two opposing forces, a person is completely confused; crying, feeling helpless to the extent that he needs to either escape or hope for a miracle.

Then, in this hopeless condition, when a person has almost drowned in the treacherous questions “Who?” and “What?” and cannot get out of them, the idea of the ark suddenly becomes born within. He understands that he will be saved only if he gets the property of Bina, bestowal, that will be higher than all his requests.

These requests will remain, a person cannot completely get rid of them; it does not depend on him. But if in spite of all these problems, he enters the ark, deciding that these turbulent murky floodwaters, all these doubts and problems are not related to him, he can be saved.
