New Life #695 – The Influence of Intention on Reality
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
The more a person directs himself, the more he prepares himself, the better results he will get. Kabbalists have other intentions; they work with a unique power, the upper force that depicts all of reality for us. In every situation they experience, whether it is internal or external, they must determine that “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35) and that He is good that does good.
Kabbalah teaches us how to build intentions and to begin to identify the higher power, transcending feelings. When we recognize the force that is acting within all of reality, intentions of bestowal and love for everyone, of “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18), that is born in us and the desire to sustain everything, disregarding nothing, and relating to everything with goodness. All of reality is created from a single force of bestowal and love; we have the ability to recognize this while we are alive. This supreme intention is called, “And you shall love your friend as yourself,” and loving means wanting to benefit, an intention which is found above a desire for pleasure and which manages it. This is an intelligent act clothed in emotion.
