New Life #694 – The Power of Intention
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
It is written “Last in action, first in thought” (Lecha Dodi); so people who want to realize life begin to clarify what their intention must be, what is the highest intention appropriate for me? What is the highest thing for which it is worthwhile to live? When we were young we asked ourselves questions like these and later we forgot; we flow through life on “autopilot.”
The wisdom of Kabbalah speaks about intentions and explains that we are living within intention. We are built according to a desire for pleasure and intention is clothed on that, while we have the ability to control intention and change reality. The reality that we feel at present remains and a new reality called the upper world is added to it. Higher, spiritual intentions are intentions to bestow goodness, love, and connection to others. The intention that is directed within me creates the image of this world, and intentions directed outside of me create the upper world. Most people live without thinking about their intentions and without clarifying why they are living.
