If You’re Sick, Will You Just Sit And Wait For A Cure To “Come” To You?

sickTwo questions I received on the correction of egoism:

Question: My egoism is not very developed. I do not aspire to become rich or to build my career. I have no ambition and I work all sorts of jobs for minimum wage. However, I do have an aspiration to get out of this cycle. In order to study Kabbalah, do I have to develop my egoism more or can I study Kabbalah without this?

My Answer: The only thing you should focus on is correcting the egoism that you have. You will then see that you are bursting with egoism! That’s because one’s entire ascent toward the Creator is based upon the growth and correction of egoism.

Question: During the last day of the 2009 International Kabbalah Congress, I decided to set an alarm on my phone that would remind me to spend one minute everyday thinking about the fact that all the people on earth are one Kli. Aside from this, I really want to join a group, but my egoism holds me back. Should I force myself to go to a group, or wait for this to happen naturally, for the Light to push me to go to a group?

My Answer: If a person is sick and is just sitting there, waiting for a desire “to come to him” to take the bitter medicine, a shot or an operation, then is he doing the right thing?

The Root Of The New Economic Model

laitman_2009-03_41661In the News (from Belta):Crisis lessons to highlight 13th St. Petersburg Economic Forum agenda” – On June 6, so-called financial day, the participants of the forum will discuss post-crisis financial architecture, reformation of the international financial institutions, prospects for reserve currencies.

My Comment: What problems were solved at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum that couldn’t be solved at the G8 and G20 meetings ? However, the more discussions, the sooner we will come to realize that the cause of the crisis lies is in our relationships and that the solution comes by examining this root. The economic avalanche can’t be stopped by regulations or laws. People must become connected into one benevolent desire. That is what Nature demands of us.

There is only one method of forging these relationships – the same force of Nature that created our egoism will cause egoism to change into an opposite quality – the feeling of everyone as a part of one system. This defines our common fate, and the method of Kabbalah shows how to produce this realization within us and draw the proper influence from above.

Deconstructing The Great Jewish Secret

holoA question I received: I came across your answer about “the Jewish conspiracy.” You confirmed that some kind of conspiracy does exist, but you mentioned that it is positive in nature: that everyone knows the Jews are the chosen people, and they will help all the nations unite and establish a “new order.” My question is: what are the means or methods that will be used to establish this new order? Please answer my question or I will assume that you have no answer or you are concealing it.

My Answer: I am answering your question as quickly as I can, to make sure I don’t lose you as a student or disappoint you by my ignorance. The Jews have a great secret, which holds answers about the future of the world. It concerns all the people in the world, which is why everyone subconsciously hates the Jews. Everyone hates the Jews because on some level, they feel their dependence on them.

However, the Jews themselves also don’t know about their secret! The only people who know it are the Kabbalists. They have known it for centuries, but they concealed it because no one had a desire to follow the way to the future. The reason for this is that people’s egoism was not fully developed yet.

Now, however, the time has come when we have all the conditions for revealing the secret to everyone. The signs of this are the global suffering, depression, the collapse of the old order and the revelation of the global interdependency. However, even today there are still not very many people with a desire to engage in this secret.

From now onward, everything is up to you. If you desire to reveal the secret, you will attain an expanded perception of everything that exists around you, and that you don’t perceive right now. The revelation happens in a similar way that one does scientific research – whatever is unknown (a secret) today turns into a revelation (knowledge) tomorrow.
