New Life #737 – Free Yourself From The Cycle Of Suffering
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Suffering is the basis of life. It comes as a result of various shortcomings that constantly change and a person suffers without them. On the other hand, the foundation of creation is the Light in which nothing is missing.
The goal of human evolution is to come to the question, “What reason is there for living?” and the discovery of perfect and eternal fulfillment. After much running, a person gets tired of chasing transient fulfillments and awakens a desire to understand the source of life and the purpose of existence. Basically, all the suffering in his life comes to lead him toward the question: “What am I living for?”
People come to the wisdom of Kabbalah who are asking about the meaning of life, often suffering derived from loss. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that our lives here in sum are quite brief within our eternal existence, and the understanding that we are constantly evolving toward the infinite gives a person a new perspective on life. The ultimate goal is to reach infinite and eternal fulfillment with Light, reaching this through realizing the general rule, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18).
Love your neighbor as yourself is the operation that explains how to connect with each other into a single soul. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that innate drives and environmental influences are managing us, and we have no choice.
If we want to gain control over our lives, we must build a unique society that will bring the Upper Light closer to us and connect us with, “And you shall love your friend as yourself,” filling us with supreme abundance and happiness. Within a special group like this, the suffering will disappear and the aspiration will be only how to rise higher toward the eternal.
