Put Yourself In Someone Else’s Shoes

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When a person eases someone’s suffering, does he thereby distance that person from spirituality?

Answer: It seems that the person will suffer less, but then he will not ask himself why there is suffering. Does this mean that if I wish people well, I must force them to suffer?

Basically, the main commandment of the Torah is “love thy neighbor as thyself.” Simply put yourself in that person’s shoes. For example, think what would you do if it were your small, favorite child, and then you will do the right thing.

  1. Question:

    Does a Man really need to be supported (loved) by more women what he has within the family circle – who are actually strangers to each other or even regard themselves as rivals to fully gain man’s entire support, love and care?
