Don’t Oppress A Stranger

Dr. Michael LaitmanTorah, “Exodus,” Mishpatim, 22:20: And you shall not mistreat a stranger, nor shall you oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Even when more and more new desires for the sake of reception are discovered with you that appear in your “land”—meaning,  when in your corrected state, desires appear that you have not yet corrected—you don’t need to sweep them away, intentionally making a contraction on them and not accepting them. Rather, it is the opposite. You need to help them recover. This is what is called a “stranger.”

Torah, “Exodus,” Mishpatim, 22:21-22:23: You shall not oppress any widow or orphan. If you oppress him, [beware,] for if he cries out to Me, I will surely hear his cry. My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans.

A “widow” and a “fatherless child” are unfinished Kelim, unfinished vessels for advancement, completely uncorrected desires where not even half of them have been corrected. There is no contact with them for ascension.

“You shall not oppress” means that in any case you should not abandon them, rather always help in order to connect all the desires together. This is speaking about the person connecting all of his desires, his intentions, his characteristics, within himself into a single whole that will be called the soul in which he reveals the spiritual world.
