Toward Integral Responsibility

laitman_600.04Question: In order to bring oneself closer to observing the laws of nature, must one learn to receive from society only what is necessary and give as much as possible?

Answer: Not as much as possible, but to use all your forces and abilities to give, to receive necessities but only for ordinary, normal, human existence.

This means that I am in balance with nature, giving everything to it at the human level and receiving what I need at the animal level. The pandemic will lead us to this; if this one does not, then the next one will.

Question: In such a case, where is our free choice?

Answer: This is the free choice: “by the stick to happiness,” as they say.  🙂

This is obvious today from all that is happening. And you can try to equalize yourself with the state of complete, mutual, integral responsibility.

Question: Why should I believe this? Maybe this is all not true?

Answer: If we proceed from ordinary laws, there seems to be nothing special in this. But if you begin to logically calculate everything that a person does based on his egoism, you will see that this force simply drives us into the grave.

On the other hand, how would we act if we are on the same small globe and have become practically a single community? Get together and decide how we can coexist properly.

Question: Despite our inherently selfish nature, we can, under the influence of our environment, cultivate certain values that are opposite to our selfish inclinations. Is this freedom of choice?

Answer: Yes. Excellent wording, simple and clear to everyone.
