Answer: Evil does not exist. And the so-called negative effects are needed only to push us toward the goal of creation, to set us in motion.
If you feel any impact on yourself, you should first relate it to the Creator and try to unite with your friends even more despite this influence. And then, look at what happens with the negative impact: does it remain or gradually disappear like fog. From this, you will begin to experience the Creator’s game. This is not psychology but forces that act in nature.
So first try to resolve any negative effects in the group, in greater connection with each other.
This is what we do at every daily Kabbalah lesson. Watch our lessons sometimes even if at first they seem difficult, confusing, too private to you. In these lessons we study the impact of the Creator on us and our correct reaction, which leads us to the goal—to the revelation of the Creator.
To reveal the Creator is to reveal the system of governance, to reveal the cause of what is happening in us, with us, yesterday, tomorrow, before life, after death, etc. This is the subject of the science of Kabbalah.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 10/14/18
Rabash, “The Agenda of the Assembly”: Each one should seriously consider the purpose of the gathering—that it should bring about a sensation, following the assembly of friends, that each one has something in his hand which he can put in his vessels, and that he is not in the form of, “But do not put any in your vessels.” Each one should consider that if he does not sit especially attentive during the assembly, not only does he himself lose, but he also corrupts the whole of society.
To the extent that a person can receive from the whole group, he can also under-deliver, that is, bring harm to it.
Question: Is that the fear that a person should have?
Answer: Definitely. It is considered to be his achievement or vice versa. In general, he can go either to the plus or the minus in relation to the group.
Question: So if I don’t invest toward the goal in relation to the group, do I fear that my actions will harm it?
Answer: Fear is not the issue. The fact is that every positive or negative result stems from what you invested into or took from the group. By taking, it means you introduced a negative force of moving forward to the group. But by investing in it, you create a positive force of advancement.
Practically, you take nothing for yourself. However much of the positive or negative force you brought into the group should be measured, and that is what is yours. That is, the group feels the result of your actions, and it stays there.
The negative force means criticism, various arguments, and descents, including personal ones. Positive forces are high spirits, security on the path, inspiration, etc.
Both, positive and negative states should be brought together. But the negative ones should be scrutinized and applied to our work.
Question: How can we bring the negative states into the group correctly?
Answer: If you scrutinize them correctly, the group will benefit from it. There can be no advancement without positive and negative factors.

New Life #150 – Patching Together the Religious-Secular Divide, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Israel is the vanguard of the world. Israeli people are unique in that they have an impression from the connection and brotherly love, which dwelled among them in the past. Israel includes representatives from all cultures and is like a mini-world. All the diverse segments of society are in crisis since the ego has reached gigantic dimensions. Just as the socioeconomic problems in Israel are happening all over the world, the solution for Israel is also universal and will heal the whole world. Either the whole world will consolidate against us with tremendous pressure, or we will educate ourselves for connection. Our situation is very dangerous. We are playing here like children in a sandbox while our situation is deteriorating. Waves of fascism and Nazism are again beginning to threaten the stability of the world.
We need to create a wave of healing here that will inundate the whole world. Do not become involved with quarrels between the different factions; rise above them. All of us have a common enemy—the ego. Each faction will receive an allotment for its true needs only on condition that it approaches connection with everyone. How do we deal with points of contention? The same way we do at home, with our partner. We first rise above the argument, connect, and then solve the problem together. That is how an argument can increase mutual connection. We transform the bad that is discovered between us into good thereby strengthening the love.
