Intention And Action

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What can be done when a person is disseminating without the right intention?

Answer: It does not matter! Intention will happen the next time. But now just do the action, intention and action will coincide.

Sometimes a person disseminates, but at the same time his mind is blank; he is only occupied with what he is doing and is incapable of anything more than that. He is not able to think about his connection with the Creator and the group when talking with other people and explaining things to them. Another example is when a person works with books and can only think about the text; he is proofreading, and it is hard for him to also think about the intention at the same time.

If a person is not yet able to combine spiritual aspiration with work, then he can’t do it. He will get to this point later. Eventually, no matter what he does, he will automatically direct everything towards his spiritual advancement.

Question: What is more important when it comes to dissemination: the process or the outcome?

Answer: It is hard to say what is more important. For us the process is more important. Of course the outcome is also important, but the thing is that it can become apparent only in a number of months or even a couple of years. So we need to keep working.
