Many Fears, One Joy

laitman_571.04Question: If there are 800 types of fear, how many types of joy are there?

Answer: Just one. It is a joy from revealing, attaining, and feeling the Creator.

Look how many movies, musicals, and everything else that humanity has invented on the subject of grief, suffering, and all kinds of conflicts in our world.

And how many happy movies do we have? Some insignificant films. There are not many facets or experiences in something kind, sweet, and joyful.

It is precisely because we exist in egoism and its manifestations are bitter and painful that there are so many shades in it.

Question: Is there joy in relationships with others, for example, in love for a man, a woman, parents and children, the path to the Creator? Or is it just egoism?

Answer: No, it is pure egoism.
