AWAKEN THE POINT IN THE HEART – Kabbalah and New Life Wisdom


-Rav Michael Laitman

People in our world do not have freewill. We must introduce a quality into them that is the opposite of what they have so that two qualities are formed in them. To be more exact, it is not to introduce, but to excite a point in the heart. It is in everyone, and we need to awaken it.

When it manifests itself in a person, then you can work with him, but not before that.

People in whom there is only one quality are called animals, and those in whom there is a point in the heart are already called [hu]man [being] according to the future that can develop from it.

“For ye haue not receiued the spirit of bondage againe to feare: but ye haue receiued the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, father. The spirit it selfe beareth witnes with our spirit, that we are the children of God.” |||-Romans 8:15-16

Zohar – Bereshit A (2) “Making an engraving upon the supernal Light”

When God created the world, He knew that we, the vessels, could not receive His awesome, blazing Light in Its totality. This Kabbalistic notion can be likened to a tripped circuit breaker caused by an overload of electric current. It can also be compared to the light of the sun, which would incinerate the entire earth if it were to ever approach too close. The Creator, in His infinite wisdom, therefore concealed the greater portion of His Light so as not to overwhelm that which He created. The Zohar recounts the process of how this hidden Light began to be revealed.

As we correct and transform our crude, immoral nature, we reveal a measure of hidden Light in direct proportion to the degree of inner change we’ve undergone. It is this spiritual change that expands our internal vessel, allowing us to receive a greater portion of hidden Light. The Hebrew letters radiate this hidden Light into our day-to-day existence.

3. “And they who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and they who turn many to righteousness like the stars for ever and ever” (Daniel 12:3). “And they who are wise” ALLUDES TO THE SOULS OF THE RIGHTEOUS, “the brightness of the firmament” TO THE ILLUMINATION OF THE UPPER THREE SFIROT, WHICH ARE REVEALED WHEN COMBINED WITH THE ATTRIBUTE OF MERCY. The atmosphere of the brightness that is most concealed of all concealed things merged with this point and shone into it. Then this Beginning – WHICH IS ARICH ANPIN – expanded INTO A HEAD AND BODY, and made a chamber for its honor and glory. There, INSIDE THE CHAMBER, ARICH ANPIN planted a holy seed to bring forth SOULS for the benefit of the world. This is the secret of, “So the holy seed is its immovable stump” (Yeshayah 6:13).

4. The brightness that it sowed for its honor is similar to the purple seed of the silkworm, for the worm encases itself within ITS OWN SILK. AND FROM THAT SEED, is prepares for itself a chamber for its own glory and for the benefit of all. With this Beginning, the concealed unknown One created the chamber, and this chamber is called BY THE NAME ‘Elohim.’
