Not Repulsive But Forces To Go On

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why is a person who is doing everything he can constantly being pushed back?

Answer: This is wonderful! He is shown how much more he needs to be strengthened. This is how they teach a child to walk. They are moving further and further away from him, as if pushing him away!

The child feels as if they do not want to support him. This is how he understands it. These hands, which support him, seem to always be near, but are constantly moving away, making him feel irritated and as if he has no strength.

How can we be so cruel to a child who doesn’t understand what we are doing with him? The poor child is standing and crying, and instead of taking him and holding him, we are tempting him to draw closer to us, forcing him to walk.

The Creator is doing the same thing to us.
From the 3rd part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 1/1/12, “The Study of the Ten Sefirot

  1. We struggle in society over whether to on the right hand to leave someone alone and let them raise themselves, or to be there and support them, on the left. Our incomplete perception of the situation leads to polarity on the issue, but the goal is the actual affect, not who’s method is right. The child should be in a state where they are happy on the deepest levels, and striving independently towards greater independence. Not for isolation’s sake, but to actually have something of ourselves to give. Give too much and we run empty. Receive too much and we vomit the honey. By being forced to walk sometimes, he is tempered by fire.
