Dr. Michael Laitman To Change the World – Change Man

Does Everyone Have Bad Thoughts?

Everything that awakens within us stems from the upper force of bestowal and love in nature that creates and sustains reality, which in Kabbalah is called “the Creator.”

However, we receive awakenings in our egos and they thus becomes revealed as the opposite form of what was sent from the upper force.

How does this work? The upper force is absolute altruism, constantly bestowing pleasure and delight upon us, but we receive that influence in broken egoistic desires that wish to enjoy for self-benefit alone.

The egoistic desires receive everything that comes from the perfect upper force, actualizing that influence in an opposite and negative manner.

That is why, unfortunately, we all have bad thoughts and bad desires, and we will continue having bad thoughts and bad desires until we correct ourselves.

What does it mean to “correct ourselves”? It means that we invert the intention upon our desires so that instead of wishing to enjoy for self-benefit alone at the expense of others and nature, we would instead wish to benefit others and nature over our own personal egoistic benefit.

When we correct ourselves, we would come to feel ourselves as existing in a single whole with everyone and everything in nature, and we would thus be happy to serve and act for the benefit of that whole as if it were our great self.
