New Life #1065 – Paradoxical Thinking and Spiritual Development
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
Paradoxes are resolved through awareness of the Creator. They come to me from one integrated source and I want to return them to this higher root. By working on myself to constantly be in bestowal and love, I discover the complementarity between opposites. The connection between good and evil is done only through transcendence to a third line, which unites the opposites. In spiritual development, we don’t destroy evil, or the ego. Instead, we transcend it because evil advances us. Human egoism is a destructive force, but if we construct a more advanced system of thought in which bestowal is more important than reception, it becomes a stimulus for spiritual development. The Torah encourages paradoxical thinking in order to elevate a person to a spiritual level. We can learn to love without eliminating hatred by rising above it.
