Question: Arkady asks, “It looks like the end of the world is near. And the worst thing is that everyone around is calmly talking about it. Only recently we wanted to live happily, we were making plans for the future, and we suddenly realize that none of this will happen. What do we do now?”
Answer: Who told you that what you wanted was good? Let’s sort it out.
Comment: People just wanted simple human happiness.
My Response: Get a shot and forget everything. Or even better, take a pill, fall asleep, be at peace.
This is not the purpose of our development. So we shouldn’t try to stay in the “sandbox” where we used to live and play that we were building toy houses from sand.
Question: So you think it was all child’s games?
Answer: Yes. A little egoism was developing. Now we must rise above that egoism. We must start looking forward and in a different way.
To play seriously means to play the Creator, to make sure that the Creator is between us in all our thoughts and actions. This is called to play for real.
Question: Is it possible to say that before I do something I kind of try to turn to the Creator?
Answer: Yes. And do it in a way that you imagine that you are doing it for His sake, instead of Him, for Him.
For Him means for the sake of others. Nothing affects the Creator and He does not need anything. There is only one possibility: to get strength from Him to act for the sake of people.
Question: Does it turn out that the formula “I want to be happy” changes to “I want people to be happy, I want everyone around me to be happy”?
Answer: But really happy, not the way I want them to be happy, but the way the Creator wants. Because this is the law of the universe. It is absolute and objective.
Question: How does He want people to be happy? What is it for the Creator?
Answer: Move into other people, enter them, and start feeling what is most important to them. Then build it together with them.
Question: What do you think will be the most important thing for people?
Answer: To feel close to each other. In this, a person begins to feel perfection.
Question: Is there peace, happiness, and security there, at this point?
Answer: The end of everything. Not the end in the sense of ending, but simply perfection.
Question: Are all people close to each other, like all people are brothers and sisters?
Answer: Yes, they completely disappear in the form they are in now. They enter the realm of perfection.
Question: So now if I want to use the other for myself, there I want to give myself completely to the other, right?
Answer: Yes. This is the mutual bestowal of ourselves to each other. It is called Hashpaa (bestowal) in Kabbalah. This is the state of perfection, the spiritual state.
Comment: This is a great wisdom we are studying.
My Response: It will be revealed even more! It will be developed even more, and it will expand into feelings.
