What Changes The Scale Of Values?

565.01Comment: My purpose as a person is to reveal a completely different level of existence, not what I see today. I must exist in my animal body and serve it, but do it in order to achieve something higher.

Such education, in principle, changes one’s whole approach to life. That is, my life becomes only a means to achieve a higher goal.

My Response: This approach changes the entire scale of values. If I have a higher goal and I can achieve it today, now, immediately, then of course my attitude to life changes, I look at everything as a means to achieve this goal.

Now I measure what exists around me only according to it: should I deal with it or not, do I need it or not? If we treated our life this way, we would only take the minimum from it.

I take the most necessary things for myself and direct all my other resources, my strength, and aspirations only to achieve the goal because I can achieve eternity and perfection today.

At the same time, I do not have to die physically. I just need to develop an additional sensory organ in myself to bring myself into the revelation of the upper world, which Kabbalah gives.
