How To Achieve Love?

laitman_572_02Question: How can we achieve love in practice?

Answer: If you make efforts and see that you cannot do anything, you are reminded of the Creator and that He must help. When you turn to Him, you see how He arranges everything. This way the love for the Creator will come to you.

You will begin to see that He has prepared all the obstacles for you, all the problems and troubles, with such love, devotion, and care. You will start feeling love for the Creator because “love will cover all sins.” After all, you will see that He has never done you any harm.

When love is revealed and covers all evil, you see that evil has never existed. It only seemed to you that this problem existed, and now you see that it does not. It had to be this way so that you could reveal love.

This also happens in our world. Sometimes you argue with someone—say, with your wife. You are burning with anger! And then you make up, and it seems to you that everything that happened was just a folly and there was nothing important in it. And then you ask yourself how could you want to leave and divorce over such a little thing.

That is life. But what have you attained? You attained that everything that happened was as if unreal and now you are enjoying intimacy even more. This does not teach you too much for the future, so sometimes you will argue again.

That is, if we treat what is happening to us in our lives, our family, and any other place in such a way that it comes to us from the Creator so that we learn to cover everything with love, we will see a completely different life.

Where Do Desires Come From?

laitman_569_01Question: Is the desire of a stone to lie on the side of the road the same desires built from the ten Sefirot?

Answer: That is the Malchut of the desire, which is formed from the previous nine influences. The first nine Sefirot are the higher influence on an object to form the desire in it.

Question: Is even the simple desire of a person to buy a Mercedes the result of such influence?

Answer: So is any desire. Even the aspiration of people to ascend to the stars is a desire formed in Malchut as a result of the nine influences on it.

A Sighted And A Blind Within A Person

Laitman_120Torah, Deuteronomy 27:18: Cursed be he who misguides a blind person on the way. And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

There is a sighted and a blind within each of us.

The blind within me is the one who goes by faith above reason, closing his eyes. If, on the contrary, I misguide him on the way, meaning I want to advance according to my views, then this disturbance leads me away from the correct goal and this is a curse.

Comment: It turns out that the blind is on the right path, and the sighted is cursed.

Answer: Yes. However, a person makes himself blind. He says: “My eyes shall not see, my ears shall not hear, I must advance by faith above reason.”

Closing my eyes, I begin to acquire the upper vision, the upper mind, and advance through them. At the same time, I go against my vision and my mind. Here we receive very different tools for advancement.

The Work Of The Correction Of The World, Part 2

laitman_744Question: Why was the world created corrupted?

Answer: So we could correct it! After all, in the process of working on correction, we penetrate deep into the world and can explore it, and therefore, understand how it works and how it should work if it weren’t corrupted. That is, we reveal all of its internal laws.

Question: Wouldn’t it be better to initially have the world corrected and live a good life?

Answer: Not at all. If I get a device in good order, then I would only need to click on buttons to get what I want from it. But if this device is broken, then I have to go into it and study how it works, find out what is wrong and why, how to repair it, and how the device should function in working order.

So I get familiar with the whole system. As I am correcting it from beginning to end, I become its master.

Question: And why should we become masters of the system?

Answer: So that we can rule the world. Man has to understand and feel everything, and control the entire universe. Correcting the world means correcting a person, so I learn who I am and I can correct myself. The Creator allegedly spoiled me, but I correct myself. Through this, I will learn what the Creator did and what the right form should be. I align myself with Him in his work: He spoiled me and I corrected myself.

It turns out that I become equal to the Creator, rising up to His level. That is, the whole process of damage and correction is designed to raise a person to a higher level of reality and perception of the world to another life.
