One Who Is Higher Than Others…

laitman_608.01Question: If a Kabbalist has the greatest egoism in the world, does it mean he is the most unfree person of all?

Answer: A person uses his egoism in order to rise above it.

Egoism is a force, and when we rise above it, we continually feel freedom to a greater degree. I cannot feel free if I don’t have the sensation of being unfree.

Therefore, Kabbalah is built upon two parameters: the Creator and creation—an enormous quality of bestowal and love, and enormous egoism.

Question: That is, I am grateful to the Creator for having my great egoism and wanting to separate from it?

Answer: This is a must. One who is higher than others has greater egoism too. Otherwise, how could he ascend?
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 7/2/17
