Why Do We Need Negative Emotions?

laitman_253Question: What is the need for emotions like rage, anger, fear, etc.?

Answer: That all will be attributed to the Creator only, the sole source of our positive and negative emotions.

Question: What is the connection between attracting the Light and attributing everything to the Creator, are these two different actions?

Answer: No its the same thing. The wisdom of Kabbalah was given to humanity to correct itself, its fate, and to attain the level of the Creator. This can be done only through independent actions. So to the degree that a person makes an effort to change himself, his efforts become empty spaces that are filled with Light.

A person must attribute everything that he experiences to the higher source. Everything comes from there. All suffering, feelings, confusion, fear, anxiety, jealousy, and the other “negative” emotions are sent to you by the Creator only so that you will transcend them, attribute them to the Creator, and demand to be changed from Him.

If a person carries out such actions, he begins to feel the positive force that intentionally stimulates negative emotions in him so that he will transcend them. This is called going above reason.
