Is It Possible To Make Everyone Happy?

laitman_608.02Question: How does a Kabbalist know that there is a common good? This reeks of communism and a desire to make everyone happy without their desire for it.

Answer: No, it is impossible to make a person happy without his desire for it.

There is an upper abundance, the source of which is the Creator. We just need to develop our correct desires in order to be fulfilled. That is why Kabbalah is called “the wisdom of reception.”

There is no coercion in spirituality. We ourselves must want, ask, and convince ourselves and our friends that reception for the sake of bestowal is perfect because it is infinite and unlimited.

By receiving in order to pass onto others, I become a conduit, like a pipe through which the fulfillment flows. However, since everything passes through me, all of it is mine and I transfer all this further, and in the same measure am emptied for a new reception.
