The Wisdom Of King Solomon: “He Who Guards His Mouth”

laitman_962.3Proverbs 13:3: He who watches his mouth guards his soul; for one who opens his lips wide there is ruin. (King Solomon)

Question: What is this about?

Answer: This is about what you need to understand, whom you are dealing with, and acting only to the extent that you can influence the world in a good way, kindly. Lead it with your morals, your influences to the right actions.

Take care of what you give to the world so that it is clear to everyone, and so that they can use it for their own benefit.

Question: What is beneficial for the world?

Answer: The only beneficial thing for the world is connection.

Question: That is, everything you can do and everything you can say should be only in the direction of connection. Is it called “to guard my mouth”?

Answer: Yes.

Question: What does it mean “the one who opens his lips”?

Answer: This is when you do not control your influences on the world and can do a lot of harm to the world by this.

Question: Can a person not set the world on fire?

Answer: No. Our nature is such that we inadvertently act supposedly for the benefit of ourselves, and therefore to the detriment of the world.

Comment: But you are contradicting yourself. A person cannot avoid setting the world on fire with every word.

My Response: No, we are talking about an ordinary person, not a Kabbalist. The Kabbalist clearly controls and feels what influences he gives to the world, what his message is, and how the world will perceive it. Even if the Kabbalist himself is not very happy about it, in the end, he will teach the world. If not today, then tomorrow, the world will understand that it must move by a different path.

Question: Can a Kabbalist give only good information to the world?

Answer: A Kabbalist can give the world only good information because he feels the inner force of nature and from there draws the method of his entry into the world, that is, of addressing the world.

He can do no harm. The world might not understand this, but there can be no harm from a Kabbalist. Although usually his exit to the world seems very unpleasant, abrupt, and untimely.

Question: Does this stop a Kabbalist?

Answer: It does not because he sees what benefit he can nevertheless bring to the world, how much he can move the world forward in the right direction; therefore, he does not think much about himself. Although, later he suffers.
