New Life #559 – Holidays and Festivals: Lag Ba’Omer

New Life #559 – Holidays and Festivals: Lag Ba’Omer
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Meaning of the Lag Ba’Omer holiday.

Summary
And the fire of love burns all the transgressions one meets along the way (Rav Baruch Shalom Ashlag, Letter 40).

Lag Ba’Omer is the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer.

The counting of the Omer indicates the 49 levels of hatred that are inherent in us. The goal is to move from hatred to love, and this is called correction.

The essence of correction is to develop a link of connection and love above the hatred. In this way we become similar to that single force that animates everything and connects all the opposites in nature.

We begin from self-examination. First of all, it is necessary to identify that our relationship to others is egoistic and it destroys life for all of us together.

It is possible to bring the correcting force into our lives with the help of the method of connection of the Kabbalah.

And where is Lag Ba’Omer in this whole story? It is an important stop on the way where it is possible to celebrate because we are sure to succeed. After we have located and corrected 33 layers of hatred in us, we can be sure that we will also successfully contend with all the rest.
