Start With The Group

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How can I establish an attitude to the negative aspects  of life, despite the natural feelings that they evoke?

Answer:  If you were incorporated in a group you would approach everything correctly, in every state, on every level. You have to subdue yourself towards the group, to see the friends as the greatest in our generation and to connect with them in order to create the collective force of mutual guarantee. By this collective force, and not on your own, you should begin to clarify things. This is already the power of bestowal, the power that is similar to the Light in its attribute. This should be the starting point. If I start the way by myself, in what direction do I head? Back to my garbage? No, I need to turn to the Light by being next to it.

Question: But why can’t we finish the work in one go?

Answer: If everything were so simple, what would you do in life? The prophets say: “On that day the transgression of Jacob was wanted and it was gone.” This means that we will look for transgressions and won’t find them since when there is nothing to correct, it is also a great problem. Love cannot exist without some friction. It is always that way.

Eventually, if I connect with the friends correctly, everything ends here, since by that I feel and perceive correctly everything that is going on and relate correctly to my state, to the Light, and to the correction. The main thing for me is to stabilize myself within the group. This approach is right for everyone, both veteran and new students.
