The Summation Of All The Parts

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What is the “summation of all the parts” that makes it possible to reach spirituality?

Answer: The summation of all the parts indicates that you love everything: the still, vegetative, animate, and human as a single whole in which there is no difference. You love them as the Creator relates to them, as the good and benevolent.

The Creator says: “It is difficult for us to get along with each other because you are the opposite of Me. Come let’s learn how to love each other through a third someone.” And so now you have this whole world.

Initially you hate this world and reject it. You have no need for it and you are ready to give it up. Nothing matters to you, including people near and far. But to the degree that your attitude towards everyone changes and you begin to approach them and love them, you will be able to measure your attitude towards the Creator.

And then in order to reach love of the people, you need the Creator. This is because you have no love for them, but only hatred! It is good that the friends don’t know how you truly relate to them. So you begin to turn to the Creator and ask for help because you cannot tolerate such an attitude.

And so you need more and more from the Creator for the sake of the friends. And then you also begin to gradually pay attention to the Creator: how to turn to Him, how much I need Him, how He can help, how merciful and understanding He is. You already begin to connect with Him; you become partners.
