The Four Attributes Of Upper Governance, Part 10

546.03In Contradiction to the Category of Truth

Baal HaSulam “Peace in the World“: One person in the society labors in one hour of work, due to his weakness, much more than another who works two hours or more.

And there is also a psychological matter here, since he who is very lazy by nature exhausts himself in one hour more than his friend in two hours or more. According to the perspective of the evident truth, we should not compel one part of society to labor more than the other part for the satisfaction of the needs of their lives. But in truth, the naturally strong and nimble in society benefit from the labor of others and exploit them maliciously against the attribute of truth, for they labor very little compared to the weak and lazy in society.

The problem is that a strong and clever individual exploits society when he works fewer hours. If he is hardworking and diligent, he does not make deep internal and moral efforts to do the same work as the weak and lazy individual does.

For example, a child comes to school to learn and sits quietly for five hours straight because he finds what the teacher says interesting. Next to him, there is a restless kid who cannot sit still for even ten minutes. He practically explodes and does not know what to do.

How can we expect the same efforts from both of them? They are different by nature. Who is going to measure this? It is like this throughout our life.

Another example is a person who does not forget to buy his wife a bouquet of flowers every week, while another individual’s only desire is to go fishing, but their wives expect the same thing. The fisherman’s wife doesn’t take into account that it will be a great effort for him even if he buys her flowers once a month, while for the other, it is no big deal and he does it automatically.

How can we demand the same thing from both of them if they are different by nature?
