New Life #582 – Becoming A Mom
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
Where do the feelings a mother has for her baby stem from? Why is the whole family obliged to take care of the baby and what is the connection between motherly love and the idea of “love thy friend as thyself?”
The purpose of our evolution is that the desire to enjoy that was created would reach the level of love and bestowal. This means that we will transcend from the nature of self-love and hating others to the nature of “love thy friend as thyself.”
This may sound like a fantasy but it is the direction of evolution. Nature has implanted a love for her baby in a mother. It is a kind of correction, as one soul takes care of another. The perfect correction is to develop such love for strangers. Motherly love is an example for us.
In the past it was very easy for a woman to take care of her baby. She was in a supportive environment, whereas today there are different modern disturbances. The relatives should take an active part in caring for the baby. It is part of the correction of their soul. Nature is like a mother for us; it is a complex system that raises us and teaches us.
A tip for fathers: Do everything that your wife asks you to do with the baby. This is part of the correction of the soul.
