Accepting the Category of Truth
Baal HaSulam, “Peace in the World“: But how do we think that we can scrutinize that truth in a way that is acceptable to the collective? For example, if we evaluate something according to the apparent labor, meaning according to the number of hours, and compel each one to work an equal number of hours, we will still not discover the attribute of truth at all. Moreover, there is an evident lie here for two reasons: The first is the physical side, and the second is the mental side of the worker.
Comment: In the past I always thought that if we all would work the same number of hours, we would reach some kind of equality.
My Response: This is totally incorrect. We simply cannot measure this in our world, but if we could everything would be much more fair.
How can I demand the same amount of effort from one person as from another? No one is equal to another. Everything was created this way by the Creator on purpose and stems from our nature so that we will apply the categories of mercy, truth, justice, and peace, and accordingly raise ourselves above the level of the conditions that He has given us, and thus become truly human.
This means that we should correct the corrupt part the Creator has created in us and thank Him for having made us purposefully corrupt.
