All the measurements of spiritual actions must be very precise. A person cannot do less or more. If he does less than he can perform in order to bestow, it means he was greedy and didn’t give enough of himself. And if he does more, then it means that he thoughtlessly attracted his uncorrected egoism to it.
It should be cut exactly along the verge of realizing that we can work in order to bestow up to the certain state and no further. Then there will be a clear distinction, no more and no less.
All this is decided in the head of the spiritual Partzuf. The soul has a head part and a body part. The head part finds solutions for all the problems, and the body part implements them.
Question: Can the body part disagree with the head part?
Answer: No, it can’t. But the confirmation of what you realize must be exactly in the material body part. In other words, the head should know clearly what you can allow yourself in the body. It doesn’t happen often in the material world, but the spiritual path is built entirely upon it.
“You shall neither add to it, nor subtract from it” is an absolutely clear action measured in advance.
If you make the calculation “no more and no less” in your head, it means that nothing will happen to you in the body.
You won’t go into either Klipa (impure qualities) of the right line or Klipa of the left line.

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah is a system for attaining the upper leadership, and as you study it, you begin to discover its letters and its forces, which the language of the leadership. This language is called Hebrew.
Question: Can we analyze this process with the example of the letter “Aleph”? After all, there is so much in that.
Answer: There is a great deal in all the Hebrew letters.
“Aleph” is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
The right upper element represents the letter “Yod,” the tenth letter of the alphabet, which corresponds with GE (Galgalta ve Eynaim), the vessels of bestowal. The left lower element represents the fourth letter of the alphabet “Dalet,” which corresponds with AHP, which are vessels of receiving.
A line called Parsa (border), the dividing part, crosses the two elements, and separates one letter from the other.
In fact, the letter “Aleph” includes the whole spiritual vessel. If we take ten Sefirot: Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin (which includes 6 Sefirot) and Malchut, GE are before the border from the upper side until Bina and AHP are below.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 7/17/16
With the correct connection of all the parts of the single soul, they must be joined together and incorporated into one single whole so that common knowledge, common opinion, common faith, and common “food”: bestowal and reception from each other, will circulate in it, so this single system of the hearts (desires) and intentions (mind) will work correctly, and everyone will feel the entire system.
When we together are connected to this system, each through all connects to everyone and each one feels that he is not just a small part of the system, but is the system itself – Adam. In other words, everything included in this system and everything that is created is me.
I feel that the Creator created me personally because when I connect to each piece of the soul, I feed it and receive from it. It turns out that my inclusion in bestowal and reception is absolutely unique and individual because I am the one who does it. And this is the same from your side and from his side.
Everyone feels like one whole. There is a single Creator that has a complete open contact with the single creation – each of the six hundred thousand pieces that make up the soul.
Feeling full contact with the Creator is the spiritual degree of a human. In our world it is similar to how a woman demands that a man belong to her fully, leaving nothing for him: no life, no work, no thoughts, and no mind. She instinctively wants to absorb him.
In principle, the same desire is revealed in a person with respect to the Creator; after all, a person is considered a female (receiving) part relative to Him. This is how it works; we must reach this state. It is manifested only on a spiritual degree and won’t work on any other levels.

New Life #399 – The Culture Of Sports And The World Cup
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
What characterizes sports in modern society and how can we have constructive competitions in sports? What can we learn from the World Cup games and why should we live in an undending World Cup?
Sports have developed because they help people feel superior to others, which is important in an egoistic society. Professional sports have become increasingly more popular as capitalism developed. People realized that there is a lot of money involved.
Sports can be a recreational activity for the family, a way of getting to know nature, and a way of spending a pleasant holiday. Competitive sports may lead to hatred. Our goal should be to check that in the end everyone has fun.
Success in sports should be measured according to the level of connection we reach at the end of the game. Thus each participant is required to play with his ego, to step on it a little in order to connect to others. We shouldn’t advertise or encourage people to participate in dangerous extreme sports. Only few need that. The World Cup involves the whole world. Millions of viewers feel that it is important so it is very influential. People watch every game because it has the flavor of connection, as we all feel as one.
We will all feel the same good feeling we have during the World Cup when we learn to connect and “drink” the pleasure from the connection between us.
