Love Of Others —Protection From Misfortunes

laitman_527.03Question: Does love of others grow to the extent of one loving himself or vice versa?

Answer: Love of others grows as you strive for it. And in order to realize it, egoism is added, meaning self-love. When you rise above your ego, above self-love, you build love for others.

At the same time, there is always a balance of two opposite forces in you. And so you are always in an internal, dynamic balance.

Question: If I love others, they won’t harm me?

Answer: Naturally. To the extent that you love people, you will be protected from them. But this is not the goal you should pursue, you should strive to help them.

“Love your neighbor as yourself” is the global, most important, external law of the entire universe, the entire creation, of both worlds: this world and the other world.
From KabTV’s “Fundamentals of Kabbalah,” 4/19/20
