Why Are People Lazy?

laitman_564Question from Facebook: Why are people so lazy, not wanting to do anything?

Answer: It is because our ego is exhausted. It doesn’t want anything anymore. All of nature is such that it tends only to rest. And only because there is another law—nature abhors a vacuum—are we forced to yearn for fulfillment.

Fulfillment leads to rest and peace, and peace to the desire to be fulfilled, and so we constantly swing back and forth, like a pendulum.

A completely different principle operates in the wisdom of Kabbalah, according to the law of the middle line: a person constantly needs to be simultaneously empty and full. The mission of Kabbalah is to teach every person to be like this, but we must learn to do this. Being lazy is something very good because you are not harming others that way.
