It’s Impossible To Love Two People

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Is it possible to mix requests to the Creator, meaning to ask for one thing and another?

Answer: “One thing and another” means there is no desire. The desire has to be perfect.

The upper Light can fill thousands of desires. But how can it place several fillings in one desire? In that case it is not called a desire.

You are a desire. Does this desire want something? Yes. And it receives whatever it wants. It cannot want two fillings because it is one desire, one vessel. If you want several things, that means your desire did not take on the right form yet.

It’s impossible to love two people. After all, you want to unite with the person you love. It doesn’t matter what this desire is for exactly—for food, sex, family, wealth, honor, knowledge, or spirituality. Regardless, it has to be whole, “I want it!”
From the lesson on 7/8/11, “Introduction to The Book of Zohar”

  1. I have a question about fullfilling others desires. Suppose a person wants to love everyone, no matter if they are hateful towards others or themselves. And, let’s say the hateful person is someone you are trying to love, but by loving him/her, it just makes them more egoistic or makes them think they are not wrong. Therefore, they don’t try to correct themselves or their behavior. Hasn’t a person done more harm by loving them, because then they continue to hurt others? It would be nice to think that they would see how loving you are towards them and in turn, catch the spirit of things and turn around and be kind to others, but most people who are like this are extremely selfish and just think of themselves. If our intention was to just love the hateful person, is that good enough? Or, are we ethically and morally responsible for the increase in hatred, self righteousness, and selfishness they have because we love them?
