Connection Between The Development Of Desires And Motivation

557Question: There are several types of motivation: external and internal, positive and negative, stable (satisfying thirst, hunger, etc.) and unstable (quitting smoking, dieting). There are motivations that drive people’s actions (self- affirmation, respect, power, self-development).

What kind of processes occur in a person when he has motivation? What does he feel?

Answer: He has a clear direction: what he should come to, to what form, to what future, and how he imagines it. Motivation includes a clear vision of the future including solving the problem of how to achieve this future and realize it.

Question: Is it possible to trace the connection between the development of desires and motivation?

Answer: Naturally, because the development of desires is the development of motivations. If at first a person had a desire only to get food, then later, there is a need for procreation, building a family, and a home. And later, a desire emerged to rise above others, to fight for a more comfortable existence, and so on. In our history, we have been through all these facets, gradations, and degrees.

Question: Today internal motivation, i.e., self-realization, works more than external motivation. And external motivations, such as money and career, work less. What is the reason?

Answer: The fact is that as a result of our development, we are increasingly attracted to spiritual rather than material values. We are increasingly moving away from the animalistic state.

The Smallest Unit Of Society Is The Ten

165Question: In order for communication to exist, rules for receiving and transmitting, encoding and decoding information are necessary. What are these rules, i.e., laws of giving and receiving? Can one learn this?

Answer: Yes, people must be educated in this. Communication skills are essential. We see how their absence leads us to misunderstanding each other, to seclusion. Communication is practically everything.

The fact is that all of us, originally created as egoists, believe that we can live with our egoism in peace and have no need for anyone at all. And if we do need someone, it is only someone I can tolerate and use to some extent. But this is absolutely wrong. It is necessary to explain to people that the smallest unit of society is not the family but ten people. The family is a beastly unit. And a social unit is ten people who are close to you in spirit, who have one common goal in life, and they embody it. In this circumstance, a person can develop to absolutely infinite states.

Question: Can this ten change over the course of a lifetime?

Answer: Yes.

Question: So, by ten, you mean an internal term and not a number of people: ten people?

Answer: Ten people is also a physical quantity that contains ten different combinations of individual desires. In Kabbalah, they are called points in the heart.

Humanity Is A Single System

255Question: The terms “equality,” “unity,” and “freedom” have been known to us since the French Revolution. Both before and after it, people fought for these principles.

We see that humanity is included in a single system of economic, social, political, and cultural relationships, which are called globalization. But this is only an external unity.

You are always talking about sensory unity on the level of thought and desire. Could you describe how you see the connection of humanity at this level?

Answer: This is a matter of the distant future. Humanity does not ask such a question at all; it is not ready for it and is not able to do anything. The problem is not to force humanity into a state of connection, but to make it wish for it, and its desire would predetermine sensory unity, even to the point of a prayer to come to it. And today’s humanity is still very far from this.

Question: And yet, what should we come to? In all the sources it is written that humanity must become one. What should this final state be?

Answer: Humanity should present a single structure. There are absolutely different people, different interests, and different movements. Each has its own point from which it was born and developed. But we understand that we all have a common goal to create a structure that would be in an internal state of spiritual and worldly balance.

Everyone moves toward the same goal and supports each other. Mutual support in particular is the most important thing in the new society that must rise up after all the difficult periods that we are going through.

Our goal is very simple: to create a single system of humanity in which opposites would find each other for mutual support and form one common harmonious whole. When two opposites connect to achieve a common goal outside of themselves, then they exist in harmony.

We need to realize that with our qualities, we can’t do this right now. But we still have to come to this. Therefore, first of all, we must feel the need for unity, and then the impossibility of achieving it on our own.

Question: Can we say that we were originally designed as a single organism?

Answer: That’s exactly how it was. This is called the system of Adam before the shattering. That is, we already were in this state. We are all the souls, all our internal information records, the so-called Reshimot.

According To The Wishes Of The Public

265Question: All marketers advise lecturers to study the audience first before speaking. Do you agree with this?

Answer: But I am not going to satisfy their desires. It does not interest me at all. I have to teach them what I think is necessary and what should interest them.

My classes consist of two parts, which should be done simultaneously. This is the initiation of the desire to know what I want to give them, and the absorption of this knowledge by the students.

Question: Let’s say you were invited to an audience of several hundred people who want to hear about reincarnation, and this is a very difficult topic for newbies. Would you still say what you think is necessary?

Answer: If this topic was ordered in advance, and they discussed it with me, then perhaps I would agree, proceeding from the fact that I really want to get to this audience but they would not agree on another topic.

Taking into account their desire, I would tell them about life cycles, but only in a certain way: why nature needs them, why nature acts with us this way, how we can change them, how the current incarnation can be used to change the whole purpose of life cycles, etc. I will turn it around anyway so that they are interested and want to study.

Question: Would you advise your students to study the needs of the audience before starting a lecture?

Answer: No. The only thing is that we can make our topics fit with what the listeners are doing, for example, zoology, biology, astronomy, etc.

Which Questions Does The Spiritual System Respond To Quicker?

546.02Question: Which questions does the spiritual system respond to quicker?

Answer: To questions that are asked correctly, sharply, qualitatively and quantitatively, which means, questions that are asked with greater force requesting for the correction of the ego.

If a great egoist, and I would even say if a “criminal,” turns to the Creator, the Creator responds to his request more quickly than to a request of a good boy. Everything depends on the severity of the request.
