What Is Wrong With My Soul?

laitman_628.2Question: What is wrong with my soul? Why should I correct it?

Answer: Let’s start by saying that you do not have a soul and that you must attain it. A soul is a part of the Creator.

When the egoistic desire, which we discover inside us, begins to work with love and bestowal, it becomes what we call a soul to the degree that it exits itself and resembles the Creator. But if a person does not have such an altruistic desire, he does not have a soul either.

Question: But there is the concept of a corporeal soul?

Answer: This is merely a force of vitality that keeps our physical body alive. We have nothing but that. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, a soul means our resemblance to the Creator.
