“Love at its deepest is feeling a friend as if he is yourself, to not differentiate “another person” from “me” .”
Michael Laitman, Founder and President of the Bnei Baruch Kabbalah Education and Research Institute.
Another way of saying;
“Love thy neighbour as thyself.”
Suggestion for contemplation: What does it mean to feel a friend as if he/she is yourself, as if they are not separate from you, as if they are connected to you at the deepest level; your essence, Life Itself? When you see someone today, be present to their essence. Be present to your essence. Overlook what the senses tell you, just feel the essence. It is Love, just as yours is Love.
What does it mean to love thy neighbour as thyself? Does it mean, love thy neighbour as if he/she is thyself, as if you are One and the same?
