A Lesson As Change Of States

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When you disseminate the wisdom of Kabbalah you give a lecture or a lesson. How do you feel the audience sitting in front of you and how much can you give them?

Answer: A lesson is very different from a lecture because a lecture more abstract, as from a watering can water all the flowers in a row without distinction, and they grow individually according to their own potential. A lesson, on the other hand, is measured. When I take the average level, enter it and turn myself into two levels: an inner level (which isn’t personal but collective) and an external level. The external level is conveyed in a language that is more common and the inner level in a language of those who have undergone the state that is being described to some extent.

Question: Do you feel the threshold of how much you can give in a particular lesson?

Answer: No. When I speak on such a level I am not afraid. First, I still hide inside myself and even my inner level is still mine.

Second, the way we usually display things is not harmful. It can deter a person who is still unfamiliar with it, but his feelings change internally and he goes through different changes of states. He needs to go from one state to another and to feel that he is in a whole world in which there is room for everything we speak about and he is like a central point, an observer and an usher carrying it all out.

There are quite a few people who cannot focus themselves that way. They have other reactions, which are coarser and slower with regard to what we study. Thus, during a ten minute lecture, they feel two or three states while someone else may feel twenty or thirty states.
