The Current Of Bestowal
Question: What is the real sensation of the Light?
Laitman's Answer: I don't have anything to give to another person, but when I
really want to give him something, then inside of me, in my attitude to him, in
the aspiration to bestow and love, a special "current" becomes revealed which
is called "Light."
In order to
perceive any external phenomenon, it is necessary to reach equivalence with it.
Like a radio that is tuned to a specific wave, I generate the wave, the quality
that is outside of me. Inside of me I create an example or model of the quality
of bestowal that is outside. And then I catch and perceive this quality.
If I truly
want to relate to another person by the law of bestowal, then suddenly, in my
attitude to him, I develop a certain fulfillment that seems to come from
outside, although in reality it floats to the surface from within. This
response that I felt in my aspiration to bestowal is the Light.

Sculpt a Human Out of Yourself
Question: We are talking about loving the neighbor as yourself. But how is
it possible to see the friends as being above you when you are sure and you
clearly see that you are better than them?
Laitman's Answer: Every
person is sure that he is better than others. Even if he does not realize it,
this is so in any case. There's no doubt that every person considers himself
better than others, thinking that he understands more and is more corrected.
This is how
the force of the breaking is revealed between us, forcing every person to
consider himself higher than others. A person forgets that he is in the hands
of the Creator as formless, inanimate material, like a piece of clay, and that
everything in him, in his desires and thoughts, comes to him from the Creator.
thing that can be expressed in this material as its personal action is the
aspiration to connect with the "neighbor." In that case, this formless mass
takes on the "Human" form-a form that is similar to the Creator.
kind of aspiration to be similar to the Creator can exist inside of the "clay"
as its own aspiration. When does it become personal, on what condition? On the
condition that this "clump of clay" acts in order to unite with all the other
"clumps" into a special form, called "Human"-into the form of mutual bestowal,
where all of them, wishing to sculpt a Human out of themselves, take on its
form-a certain part of the common sculpture.
this, everything that awakens in them and between them was given to them from
above, according to the conditions and problems that they have to resolve.
Therefore, everything that happens in the present and that will happen in the
future is given from above. And only one small influence is possible on the
part of the material-gradually, by uniting with others like it, to take on the
form of the Creator, to become "Human."
