Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Why do so many people identify with the loneliest whale?“
The Loneliest Whale: The Search for 52 is a documentary that, over thirty years, tracked a whale that produced high-pitched sounds on a frequency unique solely to that whale, to which no other whales responded. They thus called this whale “the loneliest whale,” as it lived in complete loneliness, roaming the seas with its unanswered call.
Many people identify with this whale because sometimes in life we feel that we too are like that lonely whale, that no one hears us. We could even be surrounded by a lot of people and have a social life on the outside, but on the inside, we sometimes feel so lonely that no one responds to us.
Indeed, we each live inside ourselves. However, instead of remaining lonely, we should apply ourselves to positively connect with others above our feelings of loneliness. It is because our development is leading us to a complete connection among all people, and by aligning with such a tendency, we will discover much happier, more fulfilled and meaningful lives than our current experience. We should thus consider the kind of frequency that we would need to produce in order for others to hear us and turn to us.
That frequency is a heart full of love, one which wishes to benefit them. If we calibrate ourselves in such a way, then we would cure our loneliness. We would then find that others would start responding to us, wanting to come closer to us.
