New Life #578 – Appreciation And Admiration
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
To develop, a person needs examples before him—a father, mother—just like animals do. The elites provide us with examples to admire, athletes, models, and entertainers, so that it becomes easier to control us.
When the appreciation for a particular image grows, it becomes active admiration. Without there being admired images for a person, it is difficult for him to live; he must be connected to something, to someone. Already from childhood, children imitate their kindergarten teacher. And when we grow, the media provide us with images that will become an example for us.
Appreciation becomes admiration when it is felt how much this thing has become valuable to me. Then I feel a sense of belonging. We must create a public appreciation of belonging to a social movement that is working for connection between people, working for the sake of doing good.
It is difficult for parents to influence their children because they are influenced by the friends that are around them. To replace the values for a child, the parents must attract the child to additional environments, providing him with alternatives. Every day we must check: toward which values do we want to advance? And accordingly, we must build the right social appreciation.
