Lowering One’s Head Before The Friends

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: During the lessons, we attract the Light together. In dissemination, we work within the framework of managers  and subordinate relationships. How do I lower my head before the friends throughout the day?

Answer: I lower my head not before an external image of a friend, his name, qualities, or character. I lower my head before the concept of the group, which consists of the whole reality: worlds, vessels, and the Lights. I want to be there, included, in self-denial, without any feeling of myself.

It is not just a friend in his physical appearance. I only look for a spiritual form, I want to rise above my thoughts and desires. If I renounce myself, then my body, my origins, everything that I have is directed toward fulfilling the desires of the common heart and thoughts of the common head. That’s what self-denial is.

For example, before the convention I’m prepared to do anything in order for it to be successful. I reject any criticism; I don’t have any calculations regardless of where I’m asked to go or how much time and effort it will take. As soon as I see, hear, or feel that I can help, I immediately do that. If I linger even for a moment, that’s not right; that means I didn’t lower my head before my friends.
From Lesson 3, Israel Arvut Convention, 11/11/2011

  1. Rav, is it possible that one can ‘see’ Boreh in the Friends, but he cannot ‘see’ Him in others in the outer environment, including even his family members. And if so why?
