Mutual Guarantee—The Property Of Mutual Concern

943Question: What does the law of mutual guarantee mean? What does it mean—they vouch for each other? Why?

Answer: The fact is that at the lowest level, if we want to begin to master the spiritual property, the property of bestowal and love, we must realize it in ourselves in the form of mutual guarantee.

This happens within a group of people when they gather together and try to recreate the property of mutual care, love, mutual assistance, and with all their heart want to be one for all and all for one.

Question: And one person should examine it?

Answer: One person cannot do it. He must feel as a part of society. All this is realized in society.

Question: Does a person implement this law. but in relation to other people?

Answer: Yes.

Changing The Basis Of Existence

448.8Question: Why are life and death such sharp states? Before the beginning of life, a person does not feel anything, does not remember anything. After death, he feels nothing, remembers nothing. Life and death for him are probably the best and the worst thing that can happen.

Answer: The life of a person takes place in his egoistic desire. This is why it is so clearly defined from the beginning to the end, from birth to death. The opportunity that we are given is to rise above birth and death.

However, it is not given in order to some how extend life (something we would like to do), but to change the attitude toward it, in particular, to change the force at the basis of this existence—to make it altruistic instead of egoistic. Then we will not be feeling the influence of the egoistic force on us, that is, life itself, but we will be as if above it.

Question: But this clarity, this definition, it is good, is it not? Does it mean that in the other state, a higher one, everything will be clear enough?

Answer: Yes. In the quality of bestowal, contrary to the quality of reception that we now have, everything is also clearly defined, and in much greater intensity in quality and quantity.

Does A Soul Have A Place?

707Question: A person who lives in this world has his own place. This is his home, planet Earth, a place in space, a place in time. Does the soul have a place in which it exists?

Answer: The soul not only has a place, but it is a place in itself. There is no other place but the soul.

There is a so-called imaginary place called our universe. It is imaginary because it exists in the desire to receive, the egoistic desire. And there is a place called the soul, which is the desire to bestow. This place is really eternal and perfect.

Question: Is this place for humans?

Answer: This place is for us to discover and exist in.

Question: What is the connection between the soul and the “I” of a person?

Answer: The soul is my “I.”

We do not yet feel what the soul is because we do not have the quality of bestowal and love, and therefore, we have to meander along in this way, without a soul.

Why Are We Getting Confused?

629.3Question: Are there boundaries in the upper existence? Does infinity have limits?

Answer: Whether the upper existence is infinite or not, it all manifests itself only in our sensations. So we can’t talk about it objectively.

Question: I wonder why a person is so confused. In principle, it should be initially imprinted, that he perceives everything only subjectively. But for some reason, he is given the concept of objectivity, he is confused that he can look at things objectively. What’s the point? In general, where has a person discovered that a concept of “objectivity” exists?

Answer: It is given from above. We can say that each person is given this to a greater or lesser extent, depending, so to speak, on the kind of soul he has, and he should try to realize this opportunity.

Question: Is this essentially a sense of truth?

Answer: Yes.

What Is Receiving The Torah?

214.01Question: What is the spiritual meaning of receiving the Torah? What does a person receive? Some kind of instruction within himself, how to work with his egoism, some kind of insight?

Answer: Receiving the Torah means that a certain power is revealed in a person that helps him be above his egoism.

If you want to receive the Torah, you must begin to study it for yourself. After all, how else can you study it if not through your own experience when you gradually turn from a small egoist to a huge egoist, and then from a small altruist to a big altruist.

You can accept this method of correction only when you understand that you are voluntarily going to change yourself to become a spiritual person, spiritual, in the property of bestowal and love for all.

Helpless Before Egoism

236.01Question: On the fiftieth day after leaving Egypt, the people came to Mount Sinai. “Sina” in Hebrew means hate. “Mountain” is the word “Har” from Hirhurim, meaning doubts. What are these doubts? Doubts of hatred?

Answer: Looking at the hatred that fills a person and at the quality of bestowal and love, the quality called the Creator, no one can believe that it is possible to defeat hatred at all, to climb this mountain, to overcome the enormous egoism in all its manifestations.

To stand at the foot of a mountain means to feel that there is nothing you can do, you raise your hands and be it as it may. You have no control over your egoism, over your nature, it completely controls you and does whatever it wants.

Question: Is Mount Sinai hatred toward the quality of the Creator, the quality of bestowal and love? Or is it hatred toward the people around you?

Answer: It is the same thing. Just as in our world, we transfer the qualities of people to their external image, and thus we love some people and do not love others. After all, we define our attitude not toward the “flesh” but toward the quality that a person represents as if playing it before us as an actor. This is why we love him or we do not, are closer to him or further away.

How To Get Rid Of Bad News

959Question: One is tired of bad news in all the media today. So now there are sites that present only good news. How do you feel about entering good sites and getting good news?

Answer: It is like Vysotsky sang: “We would only need to be injected and fall asleep.”

Question: To inject and forget. That is, only good news will not help?

Answer: You can, but this will be exactly the case.

Question: How should it be? We need to sift through all this bad news? How can I live with all this?

Answer: You have to live right. If the attitudes are correct, then you can meet the worst news and it will not kill you.

Of course, you understand what the world is. But this is only if you know that you must act in order to correct this world.

A person should relate to the world like this world is given to him for correction. It is specially distorted, disfigured, painted black.

And we must make this world a better place. And we have been given a force for this, the higher force of nature, the positive force, which is absent in our world because we do not attract it.

We must feel how a negative, egoistic force operates in our world at all levels of nature: still, vegetative, animate, and human. This egoistic force of nature is triggered by people at the highest level, human, and from this level it acts on the animate, vegetative, and even inanimate forces.

And if a person begins to understand that when in correct relation to others he causes the positive force of nature, then two forces manifest in our world and we will see their result.

The main task of man is to attract this positive force of nature by him acting the same way in our world. He will think about it. Even one thought is enough: I want a positive force to manifest in our world. If we think so, it will manifest itself. And nothing else is needed.

The greatest power is the power of thought, the desire of man.

Question: And then, when reading this horror, this terrible, bad news, what will I feel?

Answer: That they are actually given to you so that you evoke the positive force and balance the positive and negative forces all the time, not destroying negative forces ,but only attracting compensatory positive forces to them.

And there is no need to destroy the past world and build a new one. You only need to add goodness.

“The Sun Is Your Father, The Moon Is Your Mother”

239Comment: The fifth commandment: “Honor your father and your mother” corresponds to the act of creation: “Let there be lights in the firmament within the waters. These are the lights of your father, the sun, ZA, and of your mother, the moon, Malchut.”

My Response: AVI (Aba ve-Ima) are the upper father and mother. They symbolize the sun and the moon, which influence the Earth, make it turn and develop, give rise to the plant, animal, and human world.

As a result, these two great lights: the Sun, the light of Hochma, and the Moon, the light of Hassadim, as our father and mother, develop us to the level where we use the light of the Moon (Hassadim) to absorb all the light of the Sun (Hochma).

Question: Should the actual father and mother be respected?

Answer: They must be respected within the earthly framework. Perhaps this commandment sounds like some kind of ethics and nothing more. We see in our world how animals very quickly separate from their parents after a few months, maybe six months to a year, and that’s it.

While man has a purely egoistic attachment between children and parents. Children exploit their parents, thus developing this interconnection. It seems to us that this is a kind, good quality. In fact, this is pure egoism on both sides.

Question: It is written in The Book of Zohar: “The Sun is your father, the Moon, your mother.” Are these our real parents?

Answer: Yes, because it is from them, our spiritual father and mother, that the upper governance descends upon us, due to which we become human beings.

We absorb all the power, all the light, all their qualities, and reach their level, that is, we rise to the level of Hochma and Bina in full interaction between them and become equal to the Creator.

As a result we, ourselves, begin to control both the moon and the sun, these two sources of life relative to our soul.

By absorbing all the qualities of Hochma and Bina, we become equal to Keter, the highest degree of the Creator.

Reason—A Consequence Of Corrected Feelings

250Question: There are three levels of consciousness: individual, collective, and the consciousness of nature, the Creator, in the form of an information field. How do they interact?

Answer: The consciousness of nature—we call it the Creator—is the absolute level that we hope to gradually attain.

In principle, we are initially ready for it because our egoistic nature is created in us as a mirror image of the higher level of nature. If we constantly annul ourselves, we will eventually reach this highest level.

We do not yet know what it is, but we know the way to it, and we study it in the science of Kabbalah.

Question: Our individual egoistic consciousness usually includes both feelings and reason. Does altruistic consciousness also have the same division?

Answer: Naturally. Moreover, feelings are given more attention, more importance, than the mind because the mind is a consequence of corrected feelings. To the extent that we raise our feelings above ourselves, cancel them from their egoistic perception, we can activate the mind, and it will process our altruistic information.
