From Today’s Daily Lesson
Albert Einstein as a Child
Schoolchildren love to hear the story (turned myth) about Albert Einstein getting bad grades at school, thinking that they can too sit back, get bad grades, and still be a genius afterwards. In today’s daily lesson on a section from Baal HaSulam’s article “Peace in the World,” called “Practical Difficulties in Determining the Truth,” Rav Michael Laitman, PhD used Einstein’s school grades as an example of how humanity does not have the scales of measurement to evaluate a person properly, because we ultimately do not know what a person is supposed to be.
The main problem is that we create our scales of measurement out of a lack of sensing a person’s soul, of who is a person, what is each person’s role within the system of souls, what particular condition is one currently in and what is one’s duty toward the interconnected system of souls. A proper scale of measurement for evaluating each person and oneself needs to take all these parameters into consideration.
