New Life 771 – Selichot (Forgiveness) Between A Person And His Friend
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Human nature is egoistic, its inclination is evil, so from the start he causes evil to others. The question is only whether he acknowledges this, does he feel that his nature is evil, and does he regret it? Even if a person recognizes that he is exploiting others and wants to correct that, the question can be asked, what motivates him? When a person exploits someone, he becomes disconnected from the system because being part of the system means that he is concerned about the welfare of the system.
The sin is not about identifying the evil that we can identify, and therefore we didn’t relate well with others. The main thing is to examine yourself and understand what new attitude you must strive for regarding everything outside of you. The result of this examination is a true correction in which one’s mouth and heart are equal. When a person identifies the evil, he abstains from it and develops a good relationship with others.
This is already “repentance.” After a process of internal correction, you need to provide others with a good example. If there is no proper response from the other side, sometimes you must close yourself off and wait. To contend with the trampling of your dignity, you must build a higher dignity for yourself. Dignify the system. Dignify building yourself as a person who is corrected.
