In The Service Of The Creator

laitman_572_03The Torah, “Leviticus” 1:1 – 1:2: And He called to Moses, and the Lord spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, 

Speak to the children of Israel, and say unto them: When a man from [among] you brings a sacrifice to the Lord; from animals, from cattle or from the flock you shall bring your sacrifice.

We need to supply all the desires (still, vegetative, animate, and speaking) for the benefit of the society in a completely altruistic way, without any bestowal to ourselves, directing all our goals and thoughts to concern for others, in the same way that a mother thinks only about the welfare of her child.

If a person can direct himself in such a way, then he partially transfers his desire from the side of receiving to the side of bestowing. However, this is very lengthly work in a society, in a group, with the studying of the system that attracts the Light of correction.

Let’s suppose that I have desires within me with which I previously had tried to receive self-benefit by taking advantage of others, and now with these desires I am working with a certain system where the Light bestows on me and changes these desires from being receiving (egoistic) to being for the benefit of bestowing (altruistic). However, this isn’t the altruism of our world, even though that’s what we call it because we don’t have other words.

Actually, it is absolute bestowal and love toward others without any benefit for self. When a person begins to work on this level, then he “sacrifices,” which means he detaches parts from his egoistic desire and transfers them to the altruistic service of others.

Desires of all the levels participate in this: still, vegetative, animate, and speaking. In addition, the levels of still, vegetative, and animate serve man, as in our world, and those of the speaking level (man) serve the Creator. Within man are all the desires of still, vegetative, and animate, and he raises them in his work to complete bestowing and love, without Egypt and not in order to receive a reward.
