To Live For Spirituality

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How do I arrange my life to dedicate it entirely to the revelation of the Creator?

Answer: It is easy to examine and organize corporeal life: Make sure that you are not harming others with any of your corporeal actions. In other words, you can’t be a thief or a criminal, live at someone else’s expense, and at the same time, act in order to bestow, as it were, in hopes that you are advancing toward correction.

First of all, you need to correct yourself so as not to bring harm to others and not to deprive them even in some indirect manner. The rest of your work takes place solely in intention. Obviously, you should help a friend to find a job, for example, but, essentially, our entire work lies within the spiritual area by means of spiritual connection.

We mustn’t copy various “altruistic” or “spiritual” organizations which provide “humanitarian” help and thereby corrupt people. They breed parasites by depriving people of the opportunity to become independent and take care of themselves. In fact, it is those very organizations who benefit from this.

Hence, this is the rule by which I should advance toward the Creator: I take care of the corporeal needs inasmuch as it is necessary to sustain my existence, while the rest of my efforts are aimed solely at the revelation of the Creator in the connection with the friends.
