Hatred – Is The Lack Of Love

laitman_283_01Question: The story of Job captures the essence of human suffering. When a series of fatal misfortunes befalls him, the Creator tells Job: “Where were you when I founded the earth?” What does this question mean?

Answer: Feel that you are a human being, you are greater than everything, and therefore obligated to take development into your own hands, to rule the world. Job simply does not want to look at anything except what he has. Thus, of course, he continues to suffer.

Question: It turns out that the Creator says to Job: “You don’t understand how nature is controlled; how can you understand what happened to you?” So, what does a person have to learn: the Creator, Satan (evil inclination), or both?

Answer: This is the same thing: the two opposing forms of the same force acting in the world. Only the force of love acts in the world, so all of nature is connected, kind, and harmonious, except for a small area, which is called human nature.

This force is missing in us intentionally so that we ourselves, consciously, by our own hands and actions, create it between ourselves. Then we will be similar (Domeh) to the Creator, similar to all of nature, and will be called Adam (Man).

Question: What will happen to Satan? Will he disappear?

Answer: He does not exist! The evil inclination, i.e., hatred, is manifested in us because of the lack of love. Hatred does not have its own existence; it is the lack of love, connection, cooperation, and mutual guarantee. If we fill this place, then there will be only good. This is what the story of Job depicts.
