How Can We Overcome Shame?

Laitman_632_1Question: How does a Kabbalist overcome shame? It is the strongest most hated feeling a person has?

Answer: What should a person be ashamed of? This is how the Creator manages him. If a person has a problem, he has to turn to the Creator and sort out the problem with Him.

A Kabbalist doesn’t feel shame about anything. If he feels shame, he experiences terrible pangs of conscience because the egoism that has grown convinces him that he is the one who has actually done something, that he has programmed his life, that he has reacted wrongly, or that he has wronged people. But it is all the Creator, not him! These states are given to us on purpose so that eventually we will be able to appreciate ourselves correctly.

This approach is described in Kabbalah books and it is only according to this approach that we can relate to everything correctly. We don’t do it in order to avoid taking responsibility. In fact when we relate to life this way, we put ourselves in a situation where we the created beings invoke and summon the Surrounding Light unto ourselves in order to really manage our future state, but only through the upper world.

Question: It sounds as if a Kabbalist is not afraid of shame or of anything else?

Answer: If a person is in contact with the Creator, the Creator continuously builds him, and so he can ask the Creator to accelerate his development, then it will be totally different, and this world seems very simple. There is only one simple Light that fills it. I advise everyone to see that that’s the way it is.
