Do Not Dwell On The Past

Laitman_037Question: Since the dawn of history, humanity has laid ideological, economic, and political conflicts in many varieties and colors.

How can the masses of people relate to each other positively, above the conflict of religions, economies, historical revenge, rejection, and hatred?

Answer: All of the negative baggage from the past of humanity means nothing. What does it matter what we were and how we related to each other? After all, these came from Above! Neither I nor you are “guilty.” Nature caused us to collide like this! Could we have escaped from this? What was, was, and everything that directed us toward this was from Above.

There is no room for self-flagellation! We were moved through these states so that we would feel and recognize evil! The Creator is the one who created evil, “I created the evil inclination” (Kiddushin 30b)! So now our task is to balance this evil with the good force!

So it is not necessary to dwell on the past. It was good that the past was revealed as negative, for that is specifically what pushed us to discover the positive force.

  1. It’s interesting that you’ve posted about cinema and it’s ability to connect to others. Recently, I have written a very Kabbalistic screenplay. It depicts the fight of the soul. The good and the evil, and the struggle and trumps over egoism.
    But I am afraid since I know I am not fully corrected, that I could be doing this for the wrong reasons. Should I move forward or just use my screenplay as words for myself? I’m proud of the work I have done and I think it’s my best work yet. But that triggers my ego. So I’m not sure how to proceed here.
    Also on a side note. Do you think the Star Wars saga is kabbalistic? The more I watch or read the series, the more connection I see to the same fight over the ego, and it seems extremely symbolic. In fact, I find so many symbols in music lyrics, and other movies too and I imagine all great artists are secretly Kabbalists trying to spread the message. But that probably isn’t true.
