Strive For Balance

laitman_546.02Question: If I am complete egoism, in what can I become similar to the upper force?

Answer: It is possible to become similar to the upper force only if you strive for a balance between two forces: egoism and altruism. The force that naturally arises in you is your egoism and it seems to you that it is you. But it is not you, it is also the Creator.

You are something absolutely neutral, like a slightly frozen jelly, in which constantly without interruption, egoistic power is stirred from birth to death, and it seems to a person that it is him.

However, he is given the opportunity to balance this negative force with a positive one, which he must independently ask of the Creator. This is exactly how he gets closer to the Creator and unites with Him. He asks the Creator to teach him to be in balance with the positive force so two opposing forces appear and balance, called the middle line, emerges between them.

This middle line, which arises in the balance between the right (altruistic) and the left (egoistic) lines, is called Adam (human) because exactly in it he becomes similar to the Creator.

By having a good command of both egoism and altruism, a person can interact with them correctly, constantly balancing up and down and rising on this balance. The main thing is that he learns to maintain balance. This is our work.
