I Don’t Want To Give Anything

laitman_622_02Question: If my only desire is to receive pleasure egoistically, how can I want to give someone anything? I feel that it is unpleasant, and I don’t receive any pleasure from it.

Answer: The desire to give, to bestow, suddenly emerges in you under the influence of the Upper Light.

Studying the wisdom of Kabbalah systematically awakens and summons the Light that Reforms, which is called the Surrounding Light (Ohr Makif), to a student.

This Light gradually change us; it gives us such a sensation of properties that we suddenly begin to be willing to pass through ourselves and work for the other.

A person suddenly feels these types of attributes. He didn’t even know about them before, and suddenly they are born and develop in him. This happens because this is how the Upper Light works.

We don’t know anything about this. It is like a little child who runs and hops around, shouting, crying, feeling happy, and doing anything his body demands, and thus eventually develops. We are the same.

We simply need to be in this system, and thus we will develop.
