Comment: New research suggests that the human brain responds more emotionally to negative actions that people perform and so it is easier for us to blame than to give them compliments. In order to compliment a person, we need to activate the part of the brain that is responsible for analytical thinking, whereas in order to insult and reprimand others, pure emotions and spontaneous feelings are sufficient. This means that the brain is to blame for everything. On the other hand, you say that the ego is to blame for everything.
My Response: The brain is merely a small machine. It does not produce anything. But in the end, when we read information, we see that it is harder to say something positive about another than to say something negative.
A negative reaction is purely emotional, and emotions are our direct ego, so we don’t need energy in order to use it. On the other hand, reaching positive conclusions about another person is great internal work, so of course a person is not inclined to do so.
Question: So does this mean that all the crazy unexplainable wars that are going on right now are a clash of emotions.
Answer: Of course!!! Isn’t this logical?
Comment: And you need to rise above your emotions, but you immediately claim that it is impossible.
My Response: It is impossible. How can we rise above our feelings if the feelings are who we are? We are not human beings without feelings, but computers, and we cannot operate this way.
Question: Does this mean that humanity will continuously clash in these wars?
Answer: Yes, unless it changes its feelings, it will not change its ego, and it will not correct it. So we are facing the era of the correction of the ego. It is not a simple matter, but it is clear and good. Here the wisdom of Kabbalah is revealed as the method of the correction of the ego.
Question: Does this mean that all we need is to reach the recognition of evil; that is it?
Answer: Yes, that’s all. What else do we need? There is no evil in the world other than that. Everything will work out for the best.
