The Intention Is The Action

laitman_219_01Comment: Baal HaSulam says that it is actually our egoism that gives us the feeling of time. There is an action and its outcome, and it is the outcome that is important to us, not the pleasure from the action itself.

Answer: Egoism is the desire to receive, to take, to draw for yourself, to stretch the zero point to two different directions. This is how the concept of time is felt.

Question: If that’s the case, then there is no time in spirituality because a person enjoys only the action itself and does not wait for the outcome of his intention?

Answer: In spirituality the intention is the action.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 2/26/17
