New Life 1208 – The Right, The Left, And The Balanced Approach

Episode 1208|Feb 11, 2020
The middle line, the golden path, is a spiritual connection between the right and the left, above all the differences. The left is a tendency toward rejection, restriction, and limitation. The right is a tendency toward wholeness, connection, and compromise. Humanity fluctuates between “What is mine is mine and what is yours is mine” on the extreme left [Pirkei Avot 5:10] to “What is mine is yours and what is yours is yours” on the extreme right. The more we develop, egoism and aggression grow, but simultaneously, the understanding of mutual dependence also grows. Even though there may be short periods in which the right or the left will dominate, both of them are required for our development over time. We are living today in an uncorrected, distorted, egoistic society. Contradictory tendencies will continue to intensify, and humanity is therefore in danger of world war and general destruction. We need to learn to balance between right and left as between plus and minus so that there will be an opposing buffer between them.
