Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What is my role in my nature?“
We all live within a nature that is round, closed, whole and complete, with endless degrees and interactions and interconnections between its parts. We are parts of this immense system and cannot digest its wholeness, greatness, perfection and eternity. However, nature is a perfectly interconnected system, and as such, it is impossible for anything to move without everything else moving accordingly.
Nature is constantly headed toward a whole, perfect and complete state. Its parts belong to one of the five parts, which in Hebrew are called Shoresh (root), Alef (one), Bet (two), Gimel (three), Dalet (four) or still, vegetative, animate and speaking. They all move in a direction where they do not become one, but they connect, and through their connection, it is as if they become one.
In the relationships between the participatory parts is a law of connection that reveals itself up to a point of love, i.e. a state of complete interconnection and interdependence, where everyone is important and existing in a common love. It is as written, “the wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,” i.e. everyone understands that they are parts of the same body. Accordingly, as we cannot harm our own bodies, we likewise reach a state where we cannot harm any other part of creation, not even the smallest or the most distant ones.
Therefore, when we consider people or any other phenomenon in life, we should seek to know its source in the general global system of nature, and thus seek how we should respond correctly to what we feel from experiencing a certain phenomenon or a certain person, and how we mark their place in the general system.
