How to Acquire the Limitless Qualities of Nature

How to Acquire the Limitless Qualities of Nature

A Kabbalist Is Someone Who Shares in the Management of Nature

All parts of creation, ourselves included, are sustained and managed by a force called nature, or Creator, whose attribute is bestowal (in Hebrew the word is Hashpaa, which comes from the root word Shefa, bounty). When a Kabbalist attains a certain degree of correction and has acquired a certain amount of will to bestow, meaning to give, he or she can join in the management of nature. Being in the degree of speaking, the Kabbalist can be included in the degrees of still, vegetative, and animate, according to his or her degree, add much bounty and change the laws of nature. Through the Kabbalist, nature becomes more merciful.

Depending on how corrected he or she is compared to them, a Kabbalist can raise other souls as well. The amount of influence a Kabbalist has on others depends on the degree of his or her soul and its uniqueness, meaning what part of the soul of the first man it comes from—Rosh (head), Guf (body), Raglaim (legs), or some other part. The Kabbalist’s degree of correction greatly influences the rising of the souls and their readiness for correction. This is one way the Kabbalists help the world.

 

Finding the Right Prayer that Will Bring You Closer to Nature

The stronger the illumination of the upper light, the more one is able to discern right from wrong. Just as when one walks using the light of a flashlight and can see only as far as the light reaches, so our egoism determines how well we can tell right from wrong. In other words, seeing our true nature, how evil we are, and feeling a need to correct those things only happens in proportion to the degree the Creator is revealed to us. Therefore, if we ask of the Creator to reveal Himself to us so that we can see ourselves for what we are and correct ourselves, and not for egoistic pleasure, then that is the prayer He answers.

What Is Prayer? Recited Words, or a Feeling in the Heart?

What Is Prayer?

Question: How do I ask the Creator to connect with my friend in a way that He will allow us to unite?

Dr. Michael Laitman: Friends, I’ll let you in on a big secret. You don’t need to tell anything to the Creator. The Creator is the innermost point in our own hearts. What you feel in your heart is what you’re telling the Creator. It doesn’t work in the way that we are connected to each other, that I feel something in my heart, and I speak about something else. There are no games here. There are no politics. Here, what you feel in the heart is what you’re saying to the Creator.You don’t need to open your mouth to speak, to aim toward Him, now I’m in intention toward Him, now I’m not.

Whatever is happening in your heart at any given moment—what I want, what I’m drawn to, what I aim for—is all my speaking to the Creator. He is inside our hearts as the Inner Light inside the desire. He created the desire and sustains it. Therefore, if I want to tell him something, I have to change my desire. I don’t need to think about the Creator in terms of what I’m now going to tell Him. Does it mean I pray to Him if I take a prayer book and read it? In my heart I might be feeling the opposite of what is written in the book.

Thus, it is our desires that we need to change; the desire is called “the heart.” Our work is far more internal. So if you ask me, “how can I change the desire?” I don’t own my heart, I don’t command it. How do I know what it wants and what it doesn’t? Even if I do, how do I convince myself?

How do I change the desire? True, we can’t do this alone. For that there is the light that reforms. When I understand that my desire needs to be toward bestowal and love and it’s the opposite, then I need to ask. How do I ask if I don’t want it, i.e. on one hand in my heart I feel I want to be happy, and on the other hand, intellectually I understand that I need to think about everybody’s happiness and be connected to everyone.

I cannot have two desires, and that is why I have a mind and a heart. Through the mind I can change my heart’s desires. How? If I activate myself, if I act with the group, with the friends, and together with them I get an impression, an inspiration toward unity, I then activate this impression toward the light that reforms and it changes my desire. Through the work in the group, whatever the case may be, you need to know that what happens in your hearts is what you are saying to the Creator. This is your prayer.
