If The Ego Is Not Harmful…

Laitman_511.01Question: What does egoism mean?

Answer: Selfishness is self-love. It’s not such love as when I think about simply being, but when I love myself beyond what is necessary for existence.

Question: But if the Creator sends me all thoughts, then what is my egoism?

Answer: Naturally the Creator sends you selfish thoughts. He does not hide it. He says: “I created selfishness.” And then He adds: “And I gave a technique for correcting it.”

Question: Where does the root of the need for comfort come from?

Answer: From the same egoism. Selfishness does not want any difficulties. They are a waste of calories, mental and physical strength; it does not appeal to any living organism since any living creature seeks a state of rest. And mechanical objects gravitate to this.

Question: What will happen to places like Las Vegas that  are built only to receive worldly pleasures?

Answer: In principle, there is nothing wrong with that. If I do not harm others, and at the same time do not cause them hatred, then all these toys can be completely harmless.

As children constantly play games, so adults play the same games. Only adults are interested in playing with each other for money, so that there is some excitement.
