The Healer’s Sharp Knife

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When big problems and heavy states come to me, should I be grateful for them as well?

Answer: If you want to be above fulfillment, with the screen and the Reflected Light, you don’t care about the present sensation in your desire, whether it’s good or bad. You realize that all the states that you go through, whatever they may be, no matter how bad, are all necessary in order to develop your desire.

This may be difficult to accomplish if some misfortune or serious illness befalls you. But if you achieve the right correction, you will never feel any state as bad or harmful as long as in this state you merge with the Creator.

In your sensation you may feel terrible, but instead of identifying yourself with your sensation, you will identify yourself with the goal. In other words, you will understand why the Creator who up until now has been giving you good sensations and even more (five dollars instead of the usual one!) suddenly gave you zero and even less than zero….

Evidently, it was done so that in spite of everything, you could achieve correction in these desires, which is the feeling of gratitude. This is not simple, but that’s the way it works. That is how desires are revealed.

It’s hard for us to understand and justify this since we depend on our egoistic, corporeal, sensation, but it is what it is. It is written: “Even with a sharp knife pressed against your throat, do not lose hope in His mercy.”
