A Happy Mother of 7 Billion Babies


Question: If I accept others' desires as my own, doesn't that mean that along with their pleasures I also receive all of their suffering, for all of humanity? I came to receive unearthly pleasure, but why do I need extra suffering?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: You don't receive the suffering of others, but their desires. How can you enjoy filling others' desires if they aren't empty first? You have to feel their emptiness.

Clearly it isn't pleasant to have empty desires. But if you acquire them in order to fulfill them, then you are happy that they are empty! That means you have the opportunity to fill them! It's like a mother who is happy that she has prepared so much food and her hungry child is eating it well.

Therefore, there is no suffering here, but only pleasure! It's as if there is a good meal in front of you and you awaken the appetite in yourself before the meal. After all, this is the only thing you lack in order to receive it.

The Light is at absolute rest and we are in an ocean of Light. The more you receive from other empty vessels or desires, the more you will be able to fill them with Light and all of that fulfillment will be yours! This is what the science of Kabbalah teaches. It is "the wisdom of reception" or fulfillment.

You are like a mother who has 7 billion hungry babies and enough milk for all of them-the entire Light of Infinity. Can you imagine what a pleasure that is!?
