Escape Suffering Or Exalt Spirituality?

laitman_276.02Question: Is it correct that sometimes a person suffers so much that he or she wants to dissolve?

Answer: That is wrong. It means that he runs away from suffering. Dissolving means elevating spirituality above one’s current state, the person wants to dissolve into spirituality, that is, to exist in it.

Question: So by exalting spirituality in our work, can we generally avoid corporeal suffering and problems?

Answer: No. You would be trying to avoid them in order to not feel any corporeal suffering. For this sake, you would try to dissolve somewhere in something.

You want to enter spiritual states because you feel bad in your egoistic earthly states. That is, you prefer the Creator because it is good with Him. You would change your small egoism for a bigger one. Of course, in this case, you will fail.

You must develop the greatness of the quality of bestowal, the greatness of the ability to be above yourself, with a different mind, and with different qualities so these states are important, majestic, and special for you. It is not because this is how you will escape earthly problems, but because by this you want to bestow joy to the Creator, you prefer His world to your little world.
