New Life #812 – The Jewish Prayer
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
People have always felt insecure and turned to nature’s forces with different requests. A person’s inclination to turn to the upper force is natural and you can already see it in small children.
The proper appeal to the system of nature is called a prayer. A prayer includes self-examination with respect to the plan of the creation; that is, a person’s examination of how he uses his desire in relation to nature. Instead of using everyone for his own benefit, he should use himself for the sake of others, for the sake of the Creator.
When a person turns to the system of nature it is called a prayer. The three daily prayers correlate with the three spiritual phases and they begin as a new egoistic desire enters the system and starts to operate in it. The awakening of a new desire in a person, a corrupt desire, is called evening.
From a spiritual perspective every day begins in the evening when a person refrains from using the new desire that has awakened in him, the morning comes, which means that things become clear with the understanding of how to work with this desire. The phase of working with this desire and the incorporation in the system is called noon.
There is a state in the system of nature called the end of correction, Gmar Tikun, toward which we are advancing. In Gmar Tikun we have to reach a state in which we are connected in one system in absolute love.
