Sports And Health

laitman_751.1Question: Do sports help health or are they a waste of time?

Answer: My teacher Rabash exercised, Baal HaSulam loved sports but in a limited form, in order to keep the body in working condition. This is not sports, but physical exercise.

Rabash learned to swim at the age of 65 and swam 400 strokes in the sea or pedaled 400 revolutions of motion on a bicycle.

Remark: The cult of healthy lifestyle is flourishing now. An entire industry is developing around it.

My Comment: First, people need something to do. Second, sports do help, so it is better that people do sports than something else.

However, the fact is that in our egoism sports take exaggerated forms and Kabbalah does not welcome this. It welcomes exercises only to the extent that a person maintains himself in a normal physical form.

Any gram of excess is harmful to physical and mental health. Everything must be very organic.
