Love For Love

laitman_527.02Question: Love is the strongest feeling and it is worth living for. What do you think about it?

Answer: I agree. It satisfies a person for a while.

Question: Does it mean that love cannot be an eternal meaning of life?

Answer: Of course not. Life ends and love ends. Hormones change and the object of love changes. Each person during a lifetime can have many such infatuations.

Question: Is love the greatest pleasure, above power, money, and so on?

Answer: It depends on the person. Some people like money, for others love for love prevails, which is love for hormones, some like music, and so on. It is a matter of the inner need of a person.

Question: Does a person want to be loved even more that he wants to love?

Answer: In our world, satisfying hormonal needs is called love. Everything begins and ends within a person himself. It is not about somebody external. If I have some kind of hormonal need in relation to this external one, then I am attracted to him, and if I do not have this need, then I am not attracted.

Therefore, love on the corporeal level has nothing to do with spirituality. In Kabbalah, the uppermost pleasure is the love for the Creator.

Question: If, according to Kabbalah, the meaning of life is in attaining the love for others, does it mean that love is the meaning of life?

Answer: No. The meaning of life is in attaining your root through love, that is, in attaining your maker. And this is achieved through the love for others, and from the love for others to the love for the Creator.

To love the Creator means to enjoy the fact that He fills you.
