  1. In The Arvut lecture, this is correct. That you have to talk to people on their level and their desires. I understand where the student who explained that others want you to give them money is coming from. This is true. People want you to give them what they want. And, you are right, you cannot give them money. And it doesn’t help. You are right that you have to explain to them about money etc. This is the best approach I have found. Just yesterday, someone tried to get me to adopt their cat because they didn’t want to take care of it. They wanted me to do it. I couldn’t do that. So, I explained to them that I see postings in local coffee shops where people adopt their pets to others. And I had to explain to them where a local animal shelter was and gave them the link to the website. Another example, is the homeless. A lot of times, especially in big cities here. They ask for money. Instead of money, I have given them food or offered to buy them a meal. If they wanted to use the money for drugs and alcohol which continue with their problem of not taking care of themselves, then I would just make it worse. But, by offering to buy them a meal if they ask or giving them food, at least they can take care of themselves that way. But you do not give out money or adopt cats. It isn’t that I am not helping by not giving them money or taking on their responsibilities, I’m helping by directing them to where they need to go and helping them figure out their problems.

  2. Also, I don’t want to write so much that it is hard to catch up. I kind of want to go back and re-read the past few weeks again.

    One other question I have is, what are your thoughts on being a Kabbalist and knowing where to influence. Because when one starts to see how their own actions influence everything around them from everything they say and the give and take of the forces underneath things, isn’t a person able to see where to try to influence because they see the outcome of their actions? Hope that makes sense.
