Think About The Soul

115Comment: A person looks for his individuality and tries to express it through objects of this world and through his body. For example, many religions are against organ transplantation. They say that if a person’s organs are replaced, he will lose his individuality.

My Response: This, of course, is nonsense. If we believe that the person in us is our animal body, then we do so. If, for example, I needed a part of some organ and I can take it from an animal or from some other object, so what? Will I get its qualities? These are the same barbaric ideas as “You must drink the blood of the enemy and you will become stronger.”

Question: So Kabbalists do not see anything out of the ordinary in organ transplantation?

Answer: Our body is an absolute animal. What difference does it make what to do with it: Will they cut off a meter of my intestines if necessary or sew someone’s leg to me? If I walk with it normally, then why not?

A person should think about the soul, and the physical body just needs to be maintained, cared for like an animal, so that it gives you the opportunity to develop at the human level.
