The Torah, “Exodus,” Mishpatim (Laws), 21:28 – 21:29): And if a bull gores a man or a woman and (that one) dies, the bull shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, and the owner of the bull is clear.
But if it is a (habitually) goring bull since yesterday and the day before yesterday, and its owner had been warned, but he did not guard it, and it puts to death a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and also its owner shall be put to death.
A “goring bull” symbolizes a state when a person “unleashes” his internal animal. If one doesn’t know what kind of animal it is, one is not considered guilty. In this case, it means that this person has received from Above such a powerful impulse of the Light that he simply is not able to resist It and that the Light went through him. When a person is murdered with the other person’s hands, this unintentional killer is still considered guilty of something since it was done through him rather than through somebody else. It means that he can be accused of another crime, but not of an intentional murder.
A lot of laws originate from this. Let’s say, a woman had two husbands and both of them died. So, she is prohibited to marry for the third time.
Question: This triggers lots of suppositions. If people lead an ordinary earthly life and are not aware that they are egoists, what can we expect of them?
Answer: The Torah does not speak of people who know nothing and live a normal life on earthly since they are still at the animate level and nothing can be expected of them. They are governed from above without any questions. They know only what they know and they don’t have any freedom of will, nor do they have any relationships with the governing force. The Torah speaks about the ways of rising to the level of the governing force and being in control of our lives.
However, it’s said that if one knows one’s genuine nature and still intentionally commits egoistic deeds, then one is subject to death. One has to take care of one’s correction; otherwise, one has to die. It means that if one’s action repeats twice, then, on the third time, the same action excludes this person from the level he is currently at and throws him to a lower level, meaning that one will need to self-correct the very basics.
