To Ask Means To Desire

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What do you mean by the word “to ask” when you say that “we need to ask to rise to the next level?” Is it a request that pragmatic requests stem from?

Answer: To ask means to desire.

Of course, we are all pragmatic, and we all want everything only for ourselves. I want to connect with everyone only for myself. I want to connect with Europe, and then with the whole world, only for myself. I want to enter the upper world. Even if the inclination that everyone should feel good awakens in us, it is also egoistic.

When the Light comes, it will correct us and show us in the united desire that we have to be different. It will make us like that, something which we cannot do by ourselves. Unless the Light corrects me, I remain the way I am, and I don’t need to conceal this from myself.
