Question: From a letter: “I am full of hatred for the parents who brought me into this world! Why? Did they not see that this world is a garbage heap, that it is not fit for a living?! I do not want to live in it and I cannot leave on my own. I live with constant pain.
Despite this, I am married. But I said to my wife on the first date: “We will not have children.” She agreed. We have been married for five years. My wife asked me to write to you and ask for your opinion. But so you know, my mind is made up.”
That person writes with an unambiguous opinion that he is not going to bring children into this world. But his wife seems to want to. What do we do with all this? Is the world really such that it is scary to bring children here?
Answer: So, what? It is scary, but you bring them. Do the right thing, what a person should do. Do everything for it.
Question: Should I think about children?
Answer: You should think about children, you will think about children. Now you are not thinking about children, you are thinking about yourself.
You have to give birth to the next generation. Because that is the way in nature—look at animals. As for the next generation, we are like animals. Each couple should give birth to a boy and a girl.
Question: Those who have decided that they do not want to, can they be called a family?
Answer: This is the highest egoism, and you cannot call them a family.
A family is a male and female individual who create their own kind.
I say what is written in Kabbalah. Kabbalistic wisdom is higher than our world’s, and it speaks about how it is established by nature. Call it nature or the Creator. We are obliged to reproduce our own kind, and thus we continue ourselves in our descendants.
Question: And for those people who deliberately do not continue themselves in descendants, does something, somehow later respond to them or not?
Answer: Their story ends with them. But a person should strive to continue oneself.
