When My Child Is Held Hostage

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: I feel that my spiritual goal, my “child” is held hostage by others. How do I get it back?

Answer: You don’t need to get it back, but rather, you need to make sure that these people are loyal to you. God bless if you worry about it as if it’s your child. For instance, if your son were to end up in the hands of enemies, can you imagine what you would feel? After all, he is now among ruthless rivals, and harming him brings them tremendous pleasure.

Question cont.: And they are my friends?

Answer: Yes, they are. That’s why you call them friends. They are those with whom you must unify. In fact, if you were united as one whole already, you would feel that you are in the World of Infinity now. These are the initial rules, and it’s not worth trying to color the picture pink. Our egoism hides much more horrible aspirations.

Do you feel now how great your concern should be? Your offspring will remain in the hands of the enemies, and they will constantly look for the ways to harm him, but so that he wouldn’t die and only suffer more. Your only chance is to turn their hate into love. Hence, you must worry only about how to make them your friends and get them to love you.

Think how to achieve this. In the group, this concern has to be present and felt. Instill it in each other; ask for it during your studying because a prayer during the reading of Kabbalistic texts is the most effective.
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 10/8/10, “The Arvut”

  1. Their fear is twofold, fear of everyone else, which is why they harm him, and fear of what will happen when they are finally confronted.
