What is the good in oneself others and life?

The good in myself: is that to sum extent I have subjugated my ego and instincts and I constantly strive and often successfully so to simply do what God tells me to do based on my spiritual mentor’s advice, as well as I have compassion and love helping others; the good in others: I that they are the finest noblest people (in a relative scale based on how ignoble and unkind humanity was in the past thousand of years – can you imagine the world today (not the Arabs) creating a holocaust God forbid) and in addition peoples basic identification with one another due to democracy (as Einstein said the greatness of Americans is they really do believe in democracy) as well as their noble kindhearted compassionate charitable deeds (can you image a network of the 70 richest westerners dedicating half their wealth to charity even just twenty or a hundred years ago) is outstanding; in addition most people in the west are truly searching for the meaning of life and th e truth which is the greatest thing that can happen to a person for those who seek truth, truth finds them (through God;) and the good in the world:

The good in the world, a lot of people are so pessimistic about the world which ironically is the greatest compliment they can give it for just as the Rebbe would often say “only those who believe in God question how the holocaust could happen for if one truly doesn’t believe in a just God how can they question injustice in His world” similarly the very fact we get so frustrated over injustice and false politicians is because we are just and believe that the world should be a truthful place; considering the Jewish position for the past thousands of years we are far more free, prosperous and even knowledgeable after God sent the holy Rebbes to reveal Jewish mysticism to us. Our challenges are distractions not genuine hardships of pogroms etc. etc. of yesteryear.


The only three people we can become

This world and everything in it consists simply of three possible energies which each of us have the capacity to be, the lowest is evil, enjoyment over the degradation of other people – like the Arabs and Nazis and radicals both on the left and right who are obsessed with the others evil – are people who have unfortunately lost their own hearts and hence the only joy they can see in life (for the primary thing a man wants is joy, pleasure) is in the perverse degradation and lowering of their concocted enemies; (For the Nazis, all who are not like them; for the Arabs pretty much the same and both for the radical left and right also pretty much the same;) then there is the basic natural disposition of man which is a predilection towards staying away from fear – painful or shameful situations and approaching pleasure – things a person instinctually loves (sex, food, good music and even intelligence,) and pride, as well as friendship and even good character traits such as charity that make a person feel good.

But most significantly a person has the capacity to override their instincts and especially their evil God forbid, by choosing to follow, hence subjugating their desires) God’s ordinances / good advice by asking a spiritual mentor (particularly a Chassidic one, schooled in Jewish mysticism the essence of God’s knowledge given to man or a Rebbe of course) and in addition to constantly see the good in oneself, in others and in life.


The only being that truly only desires what is good for your sake with no ulterior motives is namely a being who has no ulterior motives (for even subconscious ulterior motives for example the desire for pride which obviously is within parents hoping to receive pride from their childrens accomplishments through identification hence possessing other motives;) so only a being that has no need for anything advises you with a complete heart, of course this also applies to the Mosses of each generation, in ours Rabbi Schneersohn.
