What It Means To be Human

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion from Facebook:
You claim that man is bad. Then what does it mean to be human?

Answer: Man is bad because evil is inherent in our nature and develops more and more in the course of humanity’s evolution.

To be human means to take all of your negative qualities and transform them into positive.

This is realized with the help of a special higher energy that exists in nature and is called “the upper Light.” I take my egoism in the left hand, the upper light, the enormous unlimited power of goodness, into the right hand, and I begin to combine them so that they support each other.

In the meantime, egoism begins to play with the upper Light, and the upper Light shines billions of times more precisely because egoism joins it. This creates a huge new sphere of life called the upper world.

A person has to do all this, and the wisdom of Kabbalah explains how. And the Creator helps us to the extent that a person desires it.
