Setting An Example Of Unity

Dr. Michael LaitmanWhen we go out to the public we encounter different problems. People can be against us, behave rudely, and resent our actions, and even try to use physical force against us.

We have to prevent all this in advance and to set an example of unity. The force of unity and togetherness has to stem from us.

We have one desire: to unite and to connect with everyone. So if we encounter extreme reactions or different problems when we come out to the public, we still have to avoid them. We cannot be involved in any incidents, since no matter whether you win or lose, it is undesirable when people attribute acts of violence to you.

Even if you are 100% right, you shouldn’t show your power, since unity by such forceful actions sullies us no matter what. It isn’t worth it! When you pass by someone who smells bad, the smell also sticks to you.

So we should under no circumstances act rudely or get involved in any confrontations. We have to try to have people on our side, as it says: “The words of the wise are heard calmly.” Only then will people begin to listen to what you say.

But if it involves rude actions, even if you are forced to be involved in them (and you will be given such situations on purpose), try to avoid them, and to step away from them. Don’t think that you seem weak by that. On the contrary, you are showing how tasteless and pointless these actions are.

Effective actions are actions that provide me with the right formation of the field in which the Creator can dwell, and this field is good and friendly; it is love and inner guidance. This, of course, doesn’t mean that we have to agree with all those who confront us on purpose and who are against us. But we don’t have to reach such a level of resistance when we confront them in order to use their tricks and to be like them.

So every action has to be examined from the perspective of how helpful it is to our unity and connection. We have to place ourselves exactly on the opposite side of the actions that are meant to provoke us.

I hope that we will be able to find the right way, the right stream, when all our actions are aimed through each of us, through our unity and connection, to the center of the group and concentrate there in expectation for the revelation of the Creator in order to delight Him. Good luck to all of you!
