Righteous Judgment

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, “Exodus,” Mishpatim, 23:3: “Nor shall you favor a pauper in his lawsuit.”

By the word “pauper,” we mean a state where a person doesn’t have the power to overcome it. A “pauper” is weak and you don’t need to force yourself on him; otherwise, he will remain weak. You need to make a judgment concerning the state in which he is found. Everything must be according to the law, the judgment needs to be constructed without connection to “Partzufim.”

This refers to the right and left lines. Which of them is weaker? Altruism is considered to be weaker compared to the ego; the ego is stronger.

You don’t have to lean to this side. First, you cannot do this. Second, you don’t need to do this, as long as you have not raised the weak side to a level where it will become so important to you that the two lines will be equal, and then you can make a judgment in spite of it all.

Our role is to raise the “right line” to a significant level. Here there cannot be any inclination to any side: not to the right and not to the left. This is not as it is in other religions and beliefs.

As long as the two lines are not balanced as in a scale, you cannot make a judgment. But how is it possible to make a judgment if they are equal? Which of them is correct? Neither! Take both of them and raise them up. Only there does the vertex of the triangle join them like two opposites that can only connect above, on the next level.

This is the entire judgment, when you establish precisely that there is no possibility for deviation, the two lines are absolutely equal! I don’t see any preference for this versus that. And so the need for elevation is discovered. And until then, only words, but not a necessity.

On the next level the same thing happens. The mechanics of all the levels is identical.
