Feeling The Desires Of Others

laitman_942Question: The Kabbalists say that a person must feel the desires of others and start fulfilling them. Are these elements of bestowal?

Answer: It’s not a problem to feel the desires of another person because we share a common goal. Moreover, this goal doesn’t relate to our earthly desires. We have one spiritual goal. I understand his aspiration because it is the same as mine. We must combine our aspirations and progress.

I try with everything possible to help us all connect in the group because by drawing a new common connecting force, we start feeling the force of the upper governance in our connection.

Naturally, I must take care of the friend if he lacks something material. But this is not the grounds to establish harmonious relations. Therefore, in today’s world, we need not overthink food. Today, nobody dies from hunger. What’s most important is to take care of the next level.

Question: When Kabbalists say that I must feel my neighbor’s needs, does this mean I must feel his desire, start filling it, and then my egoism will also get filled? What should I feel in others?

Answer: Nothing. I cannot feel others; I remain a self-absorbed egoist. Only if I try to unite with others and we aspire together to connect with the upper force do we receive the opportunity to connect with each other under its influence.

It builds a common desire from us that we create above ourselves: it’s me, it’s them, and above us is something in common that has nothing to do with the classical pyramid of desires.

We rise above our egoism, connect with the help of the upper force, and in this connection we begin to feel its action. This is the revelation of the upper force in us.

But we will never feel anything in our egoism.

How To Awaken Humanity

Question: We say that the wisdom of Kabbalah awakens people. Maybe we shouldn’t disturb their sleep?

Answer: This is exactly what Pharaoh said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt: “What are you awakening the people for? Let the people work peacefully and quietly. What do you want from them? See how good they feel and how comfortable they live. I created a paradise on Earth for them.”

Egypt truly was an egoistic paradise for them. Suddenly Moses came along and started bothering them, telling them they must leave and go into the wilderness!

Question: So we can’t touch people prematurely? We need to leave everything to the Creator? He is the law of nature and He will awaken everyone? Will the time come and people will be awakened?

Answer: We don’t touch anyone. We just disseminate the wisdom of Kabbalah to those who need it.

The freedom of man is in the ascent above our world. There are completely different conceptual bases. By changing the system of measurement, we look at life differently and change the value system.

Therefore, the concept of freedom is specifically in an elevation above our egoistic world where only the characteristic of bestowal and love exists, which is the characteristic of the Creator. That is what we must achieve and then we will talk, investigate, and discuss things correctly.

In contrast to this, all of the materialistic philosophies no longer provide any benefit. They are limited to the framework of human nature. For some time, philosophy has already exhausted itself there. Moreover, all the sciences are rounding out and gradually ending their development because humanity has achieved the final state of its development and later the attainment of freedom will be waiting for it.

New Life #929 – Love Movements In Our World
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

Love movements in our world lack the power to bring forth real change. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches people how to attract the higher power by making efforts to unite and care for others. In order to love others without any benefit for oneself, people must undergo an internal change and acquire a second nature. If students of the wisdom of Kabbalah succeed in building love above the differences, they will attract the higher power that can create real changes in the world.
