Why Do Newborns Cry So Much?

Laitman_509Question: Why do newborns cry so much?

Answer: They have very small minds. They feel only their feelings and cannot balance them with reason. That is why they are either happy or they cry.

Question: Does this phenomenon have a spiritual root?

Answer: This is a very small Kli (vessel), which lacks reasoning ability. That is why a newborn displays what it feels.

Remark: Your teacher Rabash used to say that when a child cries, no one pays attention, but when an adult cries, then we understand that there is some kind of prayer there.

My Comment: Among adults there are people with different sensitivities. That is why their tears are not related to spirituality. Kabbalists are prone to serious expressions of emotion, but these, as a rule, are rarely seen externally.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian, 12/31/17
