The Commandment: “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery”

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn spirituality, adultery means using the uncorrected desire.

The point is that the male part of the spiritual vessel is a Masach (screen), an intention of “in order to bestow,” and the female part is “the desire to receive.” To receive in order to bestow is the correct use of the desire, its correct fulfillment.

So, adultery means using the incorrect desire. It isn’t your wife, it’s not your correct desire. You must choose the desire correctly, to be engaged to each of them, to get married, to connect, to adhere, to mate, and to give birth to the next state above it. Then, the Light will come and fill it.

How many new desires emerge in a person every minute? Every minute he is different and his desires are different but since the entire world is you, your application, then on the whole there are no strange desires.

The fact that we see that there are seven billion different people in the world or three billion couples is actually what is in one person as the desires constantly change and so do their Masachim (screens).

A person is a sum, an integral element, that includes all of humanity. All of humanity is a kind of an exhibition, a photograph, a replica of our inner states. This means that during the phase of correction, a person goes through, let’s say, three billion states and so he sees three billion couples external to him.

The Torah doesn’t speak about problems that we encounter in this world. Adultery has been part of human history and there was no way to extinguish this phenomenon that flourished in every age.

Sexual desires are considered the most basic elementary pleasures, which means that sexual pleasure is actually the greatest pleasure. A person cannot reject any pleasure; he can use them correctly.

Prohibitions in Christianity and, on the other hand, the annulment of prohibitions and bigamy in Islam, are like the “right line” and the “left line” with regard to Judaism where it is normal to have one wife and adultery is forbidden.

From a spiritual point of view, a person has the desire that must be fulfilled at any given moment. It is called his female part. He must prepare a Masach with the right intention of that desire in order to bestow, and thus use it. The result, which means the actual bestowal, the Light that is born in the new system, is called “his offspring.”
