The Truth Above All

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, “Leviticus” 19:11: Ye shall not steal; neither shall ye deal falsely, nor lie one to another.

“Ye shall not steal” means that you shouldn’t take upon yourself what you cannot correct since it belongs to someone else and not to you. It is about the attainment of the limit of a person’s ability to work in order to bestow.

You have to take the uncorrected parts of your desires, since otherwise you will not be able to work with them in order to bestow. Therefore you have no right to cross the border (the corner of thy field), which separates the ten whole Sefirot from the tenth part, and you should determine that this part is not mine. Even if these are your desires, if you cannot correct them, they cannot be yours.

“Neither shall ye deal falsely nor lie one to another,” means that you have to see the clear border between the desires that you work in (the upper part of your soul, GE) and the desires of the lower part of the soul with which you cannot work in order to bestow, and with regards to which you restrict yourself and don’t touch.

In other words, no matter what relationships you have with others, the truth is above these relationships and their different outcomes. This means that the truth, the Creator, His place, His greatness, the law of the world and the universe, is above everything and above everyone.

Therefore, a person cannot work when the truth is under his control. He has to constantly place himself under the system of values that don’t belong to him in any way. They should always come first and he should accept them above all his decisions and his solutions.

Question: If we speak about the connection between people, is there always a force called the Creator between us? Does that mean that it is independent of the actual connection but that there is a connection for the sake of unity?

Answer: We have to establish a full and absolute connection between us called the Creator. If we focus on this connection, it will gradually be revealed among us. This constant intention for the maximum revelation of the Creator is our continuous movement forward to the extent that we learn the method of connection, unity, and correction, which is the Torah.

Therefore, “Neither shall ye deal falsely nor lie one to another,” means that there cannot be a connection between us without the Creator.
