Cool Water For A Soul Tormented By Thirst

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Is one’s proximity to spirituality measured by the love that is felt in one’s heart? And if we don’t feel love, does that mean we are not in spirituality?

Answer: Spirituality begins when a person feels that it is inside of his mutual connection with the friends whom he sets apart from the entire rest of the world for this reason. There he feels his new, different existence, which is different from the previous—inside of this connection, in which there are no calculations besides connection and mutuality, where they all embrace the Creator together.

They embrace the very quality of bestowal that reigns in them, which they desire to reveal. They want to feel such joy from it as if they are immersing in cool water on a grueling, hot day. In the same way, we want to feel the quality of bestowal filling us.

  1. The ego knows so many things about me, while I hardly know myself or my relationship to the Creator, with that being said, how, or what do I look for in myself to know I am being honest/truthful/complete in my intentions, to only bestow. I feel a connection, but is it because my ego is being pleased in a new way? how long would I have to feel/be this way to trust it that I am indeed in a new environment, not the same old one, with new colors,names and road signs that lead me back to the same lacks.defeats and loss. or would it be just another breaking of the kli?
