Man’s Main Work

laitman_933Question: What is the work that I should do, and what is the work that the Light, the upper force, the Creator, performs?

Answer: The work that I should do is to obligate the upper Light to correct me.

My work is called a prayer, a request. I need to really want to perform this movement, which I cannot perform naturally. It is because it is impossible to bestow fully without receiving anything for myself since our nature is absolute egoism.

We can, however, receive this opportunity from above, and it is called the upper Light, the Light of Hassadim. But, it is only if the upper Light impacts me. It is in my power to convince the Light to influence me, but it can be done only through the group, through working with the ten.

Then, I can bestow without asking for any reward or anything in return.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 12/18/16
