In the olden times described in the Torah, there were six settlements to which people who “accidentally” had injured others escaped.
Why would they run anywhere if their supreme court justified their actions by issuing legal notices (indulgences) that clearly stated, “I killed a human being unintentionally, and everyone knew about it?” Who would chase them if their actions were approved by the law accepted by their society?
What would their punishment be? They are penalized by deprivation of freedom and by living among those who tried to rectify themselves.
Why did the Creator regulate them so that through them is carried the punishment of others? Why does one unintentionally hurt one’s neighbor or inadvertently murder someone? Let’s say that I was driving my car and all of a sudden hit my neighbor’s lawn. Who inserted this program inside me?
We clearly understand that it is the Creator who does it to us. The rules of the Torah contain a special chapter that explains the Creator’s ways to use us, without our conscious participation, and to conduct His actions through us in order to impact a third party.
Is it possible to get clarification if everyone understands who the scriptwriter is? On the other hand, our attempts to elucidate these issues might help us realize the truth. How can we figure out that it is not us but the Creator who used us for His deeds? Can the upper judgment do it to us? At what level should the judge be in order to define that it was the Creator’s action?
Question: Really, who is in the position to consider our actions to be the Creator’s deeds?
Answer: Step by step, we’ll clear that up.
We should stop lying to ourselves. A person should examine oneself and figure out whether he has anything in common with others or not, and whether there are any spiritual relationships between one and one’s surroundings. If not, then why are they placed in the same system? If there are spiritual liaisons involved, one should think of ways to improve this contact.
Comment: So, it means that a person who committed an unintentional murder and who voluntarily exiled himself to the settlement should be at a very high cognitive level.
Answer: No one prosecutes him nor he is sentenced to live in a settlement where he must report to a police station every morning. There is nothing like that! He sees that the upper will direct him there, and he goes to that place in order to clear up the upper will. In a while, when the upper system to which he is connected completes its work, he is allowed to return.
