Different Levels, One Essence

Dr. Michael LaitmanTorah, Leviticus (Ki Tazria) 13:18-20: And when the flesh hath in the skin thereof a boil, and it is healed, in the place of the boil there is a white rising, or a bright spot, reddish-white, then it shall be shown to the priest. And the priest shall look; and, behold, if the appearance thereof be lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy, it hath broken out in the boil.

White is the Light of Hassadim (Mercy), and red is the Light of Hochma (Wisdom), in other words, the right and the left lines that are essential for the revelation of the essence of this desire.

Torah, Leviticus (Ki Tazria) 13:21: But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and it be not lower than the skin, but be dim, then the priest shall shut him up seven days.

Comment: On the whole, this is a repetition of what we already have said.

Answer: There are many repetitions in the Torah in general, since all the levels that make up ten Sefirot are similar to each other, but different chapters refer to different levels, and so the language constantly changes. However, the essence of the one problem, the ego, remains the same and so the solution to the problem is also just one: to determine exactly what is corrupted, and to ask and receive from above, the power of correction that matches it.

Question: Does the intention refer to holding on constantly in my thoughts to this picture, which, in a movie, is called the main act?

Answer: It isn’t the main scene, but an ordinary scene and there is nothing other than that.

It changes, however, since in the transition from one desire to another, you fall into egoistic use and then begin to realize and wish to correct things. You are looking for a way to do that as if there were never anything. Once again, you find a group, and once again, you begin to correct yourself according to the right environment.

In fact, the same thing repeats itself, but on a new level each time, and so it seems totally different. For example, I studied geography every year in school, and everyone thought that it was seemingly the same material over and over again. But, I saw how the study became increasingly deeper. First, we studied the ordinary division of states and continents, and then about physical geography, nature, and the demography and industry in different countries. This means that each year the acquisition of knowledge becomes deeper, although the material may seem the same on the whole. It is the same thing here because we study the same thing.
