How Can We Become Independent Of The Outcome Of Our Work?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What can help us become independent of the outcome of our work?

Answer: We should switch the corporeal outcome to a spiritual outcome. A spiritual outcome is to delight the Creator. Imagine that you want to delight someone, to please him, and to make him happy and this someone is the Creator.

In order to picture the Creator more accurately and to be less mistaken, you should imagine that you want to make all of reality happy: All the still, vegetative, animate nature, and people, you want to make feel good and you actually dissolve and disappear in them, dedicating yourself to them in every possible sense, from now till eternity, beyond time, motion, and place, in everything that you do.

In order to be more concrete, imagine that you are in a group and that you want and try to act this way with regard to the friends. You want to totally dedicate yourself to them, to be in them, and to disappear and be incorporated in them, but this has to be fulfilled in practice, which means that you should be ready to do anything in order to disappear in them. This means that everything disappears: the causes, the actions, the outcomes; everything is aimed at the friends.

Think about it and imagine this situation and check your conclusions and clarifications in practice by your actions. We have to clarify whether what we say isn’t just empty words and whether they penetrate your heart. This is examined only by one’s actions. If such an intention enables you to operate yourself, it means that your intention is right. But if you have to change your intention in order to operate yourself and to start doing something, then your intention isn’t serious enough yet, as it says “without a cover.”

  1. It seems to me that the Kabbalah is very simple, but its explanation is unnecessarily complicated.

  2. Thank you Rabbi Laitman,

    The Dalai Lama also teaches do good and teach others how to be happy. Yes, it is all for the greater good of all in all and above all the Infinite All One. 🙂

    Be happy.
