It was the best time in the Jewish state. In his time the Temple was built. He wrote great books. He was engaged in education, and in general there was a hold in all matters.
There are quotes that are attributed to him. They are very deep and at the same time very simple. Please comment on them.
“Two are better than one, since they have good reward for their toil.
“For if they fall, one will lift up his friend, but woe to the one who falls and has no second one to lift him up.
“Moreover, if two lie down, they will have warmth, but how will one have warmth?”
Everything is so simple.
Answer: No, it is not simple. These are great and seemingly simple facts, but unattainable for the ordinary person to simply take and implement.
This refers to the internal unity of people, above hatred, when each of them is a separate entity. This is huge work of a person on himself, moreover, according to a serious technique.
Question: Do you think it is not just said: it is good to be together and not alone?
Answer: No, this is King Solomon. Would he just say that?
Question: Do you mean he clearly understands that people cannot be together?
Answer: Of course. It is the disclosure of internal hatred that is necessary in order to discover the extent to which we must reach in order to become so close to each other, to warm one another. This is not bodily warming, it is when you work on my soul and I work on your soul.
