How to Relate to the Creator’s Concealment | Perception of Reality With Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman | Lesson 9
How should we relate to the concealment of the Creator? Concealment is an invitation to revelation. This is so, because if something is hidden, it exists. There is no reality itself other from how the person depicts it. Therefore, when at some point a person comes to the sensation that the Creator is hidden, one basically reveals that He exists.
In the wisdom of Kabbalah, concealment-revelation is embedded in two main principles: “There is none else besides Him” and “He is good who does good.” Therefore, in the process of building the right perception of reality, when one comes to understand that the Creator is concealed, a person starts to discover that He operates in oneself and that everything comes from a single force.
One of the most important points here is the state of emptiness. When I feel that I receive no fulfillment in this world and find myself completely empty, if I ascribe this action as coming from the Creator and raise His greatness, I start revealing Him.
Why would the Creator conceal Himself? Wouldn’t it be better if everyone knew that He is great? In the correct perception of reality, concealment is very important to me. If I lower my sensation of unpleasantness and switch my attention from what I receive to who gives it to me, I realize a completely new picture. I start loving the concealment because I receive it from Him, which means that the upper force communicates with me in such a way, and we are connected. Relating emptiness to the greatness of the Creator indicates faith above reason.
It’s not the gift that really matters, but the great Giver behind the gift.
