Question from Facebook: Where did you come up with the notion that a person sees in people only his own flaws? In killers too?
Answer: Yes. In everybody and in everything we see ourselves, our reflection. Why? Because we perceive everything in the mirror of our egoism. This is how our perception is structured: we cannot see what is not in us. The picture of the world is drawn inside.
In fact, in front of me there is white Light—the perfect property of bestowal and love. And on this background, I “draw” my own properties. Therefore, whatever is projected onto the screen of my consciousness, it all comes from within. The external evil I see is my uncorrected nature.
And in the end, having corrected all the flaws in myself, I will reveal that same white Light, the original love. In this way, the Creator leads us to Himself—through a gradual realization of the illusory nature of the external world as it seems to us today. This is Kabbalistic psychology.
