Question from Facebook: I have been betrayed many times in life. I know what it is, but I still want to ask, what is betrayal?
Answer: I have also often felt a change in attitude toward me that could be called betrayal.
But since I began to study the wisdom of Kabbalah, I have always accepted it as completely natural, without any internal drama, without anger or grumbling, without a desire for revenge, because first of all, that is how human nature is manifested.
Second, this doesn’t reveal the person who betrayed you, but the Creator who is showing you how much your attitude has not been perfect, far from total love, loyalty, and complete interaction with others. So your resentment and grumbling is out of place.
On the contrary, you need to understand that if you want to attain absolute devotion in your relationships with others, you must ascend in spiritual levels to a state where your ego will be completely subordinated to the law of brotherhood and love. This is a high level but attainable.
Only to the degree that you rise to a level of shared work with a friend, will you be able to trust him as yourself.
And there is no place for betrayal there because during an ascent you enter into an area where you are protected by the Upper Light. A higher energy illuminates you so that you are not able to carry out anything improper because you are under its influence.
