Intention: An Oil Painting

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What is the correct intention? How is it manifested: in feelings or in the mind?

Answer: The correct intention is the picture of the desired state, the painting, which has me, the world, and the Creator all together. The painting depicts my aspirations. I want to reach this image in reality; it is the future state that I set for myself as the goal.

The intention is not a mantra, not an empty fantasy, but the picture of the future world that I want realize in life. It changes all the time, but most importantly, it incorporates everyone. I do not erase or not gloss over anything; I am not the master of this majestic panorama; I only want that all its parts is lined up in just this way.

Looking at the future reality, I want everyone to live in adhesion with the Creator. It is the idyll, harmony, the perfect canvas of universal unity. Everyone attains Him, everyone is united with Him, and for this they are united with each other. Everyone is as one man with one heart and together with the Creator—Israel, the Torah, and the Creator is one. This is my intention so I want to see, understand, and feel the reality; I want to live in this world. This is my dream.

When I speak to someone within the framework of dissemination, I have more or less a clear program of how to bring him to this picture of my intention. He will be integrated with it; he will be more or less active in it, depending on whether the point in the heart has been awakened in him. Anyway, I want him to be also involved in the process; that is the purpose of my dissemination. After all, I know that only in this case will it be good. That is why I want to involve him in this picture.

Of course, along the way I bring him evidences proving that it is the only true path; I explain how to act and show that this technique is not fraught with danger and brings only good things for him, his children, his friends…

This is along the way, but in the end, I want him to become one with me in order to achieve the goal.
