One of the very difficult things about life and in Judaism as well, is that there is so much information that we often get confused.
The purpose of this article is, to say what is definite and the other confusing things will not need to confuse us, as it doesn’t take away from the definites, rather is a facet to add onto the definites.
- There is a single creator who manifested a reality in which we perceive ourselves as the true reality and the creator as the possibility.
- It is man’s goal to supersede this false perception.
- This is primarily done through the ein oid milvadoi meditation.
- Ein oid milvadoi means, that as all matter constantly gets refreshed, reenergized from God’s energy, hence much like a person imagining a reality – hence the reality is not outside of the person rather inside the person, hence all of reality (though perceptually feels outside of God) is really part and parcel of God and carries no independence whatsoever!
This leads us to five conclusions:
- Everything that happens was designed by God.
- Everything that happens was designed by God for a purpose.
- The purpose why God designs everything is always for the benefit of man.
- The benefit for man for which reason God designs everything, is man’s spiritual growth.
- For man to grow spiritually from the design of God behind everything that happens –as he has free choice – he needs to seek the lesson behind it.
In a general sense, God gave the Jewish people his general desires for humanity which generally speaking is 613 commandments for Jews, and seven commandments for Noahides.
The essence of Judaism is, goodness sand kindness, or the verse, “Love your friend as much as yourself!”
Those who identify – as they have been empowered i.e. democratic societies – with each other, hence the people desire unity and as a result they are kind.
And those that don’t identify – as their societies’s denigrates the individual, usually for the benefit of the dictator – hence the people feel like crap, hence they are jealous of those societies that do identify, and as we see in the school-bully, when you feel like crap, all you want to do is crap on others.
Most of us see the world as this vast domain and we are but one person
But let us analyze, the Rebbe certainly changed the world, how?
In fact all the great Rebbes before him did – how?
The answer is perplexing i.e. people perceive two worlds which are superimposed on each other.
The first world is the mind that somehow adds up all the dots of reality quickly – seven billion people – lots of land etc. etc.
But then there is a much much smaller world, which is the heart – the world out there is really the world in here.
In other words, say a child is God forbid abused, then the world outside there very much gets superimposed based on the world inside here, and he perceives a hostile angry world, and he usually becomes hostile and angry as well.
