Two questions I received on the 613 desires and the transformation of singularity:
Question: Dear Rav Michael Laitman, the teachings talk about 613 desires, but they all came from one original desire by the Creator. When we distanced ourselves from the Creator, then the one desire fragmented into 613, of which 612 are unreal and only one is real. Right?
My Answer: Yes.
Question: How can singularity transform without being changed?
My Answer: Everything stays the same, besides the intention “for oneself” in all of one’s thoughts, desires, and actions. The intention changes to its opposite – “for others.” This is how one becomes similar to the Creator, and when he does, then he also perceives himself this way.Video: The Intention Behind the Action [3:06m]: Play Now | Download
