Love Is The Common Denominator

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: It seems to me that the absence of a uniform opinion among the people of Israel is not a defect, rather it testifies to the advancement of the people. So, in what manner is it possible to reach a condition where the people will attain unity and, together with this, will maintain the wealth of opinions?

Answer: There is only one word that easily solves this problem: love! As it is written, “Proverbs” 10:12: Love covereth all transgressions. Love balances all the differences. Each one will remain with his opinion, but love will make it possible for us to maintain opposing opinions, feel our connection, and belong to a single whole above them.

The Arabs are trying to attain unity among people in which everyone thinks the same thing without deviating even a millimeter to the side, like robots. However, the wisdom of Kabbalah says the opposite. The more that people develop, their opinions become more divided and contradict each other.

About Israel, it is written, Talmud Babyli, “Masechet Berachot 58b”: To the degree that their faces differ, so their opinions also differ. And, this is good, as it is a sign of high development. It is necessary only to build love in the face of all of this, so that even though each one thinks differently, love will connect us.

We can take advantage of this heterogeneous condition that includes within it a multitude of different desires, thoughts, and opinions for the sake of our shared love, for the benefit of others, and for the benefit of all people. Each one will remain with a very rich view of the world and use it for the benefit of all the people.

Imagine how wonderful this will be. Our land will flower and grow immeasurably, for we don’t destroy the person and don’t make him into a robot who performs commands obediently.

Question: So, what will be the common denominator that will unite all of these different people?

Answer: The common denominator is our belonging to one people, and in order to elevate this unique people to a higher level, each one will use his unique opinion, “love covereth all transgressions.” Thanks to this, we will discover another level of reality, and will go out to a new, higher dimension.

Question: So, in what way is it possible to attain a stable existence of the people of Israel in the land of Israel?

Answer: It is through a tighter and tighter connection between us to the point of absolute love without any limits.
