The Secret Of The Missing Volumes Of The Book of Zohar

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Book of Zohar, “Amor,” Item 140: Passover is seven days and Sukkoth is seven days. The wholeness of the joy of Sukkoth is one day, Shemini Atzeret. Why aren’t there seven days in Shavuot? After all Shavuot is the time of the giving of the Torah, which is most important, Passover is the right line, Sukkoth is the left line, and Shavuot is the middle line, which includes the two lines, so it should be seven days, more than in them.

Passover, Shavuot, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, all the festivals and all the days of the year are levels of the spiritual ladder. 6,000 years (the whole period of the correction of the world) is divided into 3 periods, each 2000 years long. When the vessels are revealed: the desires HBD, HGT, NHY, or the worlds of Berya, Yetzira, Asiya.

The souls in these worlds operate by rising together with these worlds to the world of Atzilut. By rising to the world of Atzilut, they attain these special festivals, the Saturdays and the weekdays. So it is about spiritual states, and The Zohar tells us why there are not seven days in Shavuot like in Passover.

We should understand that The Book of Zohar, which we have received is made of separate parts and sections that remained. There are parts where an explanation is cut in the middle and there is nothing afterward. This is all we have left and according to the upper Providence, we don’t need any more.

The authors of The Zohar did much more, they wrote about 100 volumes, everything they put into them they discovered and operated by in the whole system of the souls. Baal HaSulam and Rabash tell us that the sages of the Talmud prepared this system for us that way, so that now the Light operates through it and we are nourished by it and don’t have to precede our spiritual development by a life of sorrow. The authors of The Zohar did the same thing.

Baal HaSulam also wrote many books and burnt them. So what’s the use? The use is in what he put into the system itself. He prepared for us the whole system for correction and so did the authors of The Zohar. Of the whole book of The Zohar, we have received only the commentaries about the Torah, and even that is not whole. The book included much more than that, there was the commentary on the book of the Prophets and the book of Writings, about the whole Bible, but we don’t have it. They wrote these parts and they disappeared because they belonged to the system itself only. We receive it when we discover the system; this is how everything works.

It is the same in a person’s spiritual life, one part immediately goes into the system and another part is revealed. It is the same with our actions, on part is revealed and another is concealed.

The Trigger For Making The Right Decision

Dr. Michael LaitmanIt is now, with the country in such a tense state, that we need to invest maximum efforts in order to understand that all these events are only triggers that are intended to bring us to correct decisions, to mutual guarantee. The main thing is to not return to the same level of separation when tomorrow the firing ceases, but to remain at the same level of concern and mutual thoughts that we feel today. At least not to descend from this degree, then it will already be good.

The recognition does not come immediately. It’s like in an acoustic system: First a wave enters, shakes the system, and a certain period of time is required in order for the system to come to equilibrium and stabilize. Only in the end is a response formed at the exit. The same thing is happening today. We need to accept the state, and go through all the four stages of attainment, the recognition, the comparison, the whole process of development, that at the end we’ll finally understand it and make a decision. It will mean that we got this degree, integrated it within us and will no longer descend from it.

For this, we must go through many internal actions, and mainly go through them consciously. And this is not done quickly and easily. Our role is to help this process by constant dissemination in order to bring everybody to connection, to participation in workshops, to explain in all ways, by any means, where possible. This is the maximum that we can do.

We know that we are doing the right thing if we are acting for the sake of connection. The connection is required for us and not only so that the missile assault would stop. Otherwise, it turns out that we want to neutralize the upper force that pushes us forward. Rather we want to attain the goal to which this war is awakening us. It wants to push us to making the right decision and to advance. So let’s make this decision and advance, and then we’ll see that the threat disappears, resolved in a good way.

We constantly ask ourselves, “What next?” and obviously that further on it will be worse, in half a year, a year. The situation will only exacerbate and the conflict will not stop. So how can we finally resolve this problem? Do we have the opportunity or not?

We see how the upper Providence brings all these problems to us, forcing us to build the enemy before us. There is no decision here other than to first hold onto the goal to which all these calamities bring us. If we reveal the force of mutual guarantee between us, it will fulfill everything, and in our connection, the upper force, the Light, will begin to act. Then we won’t have any problems, and we’ll always have extra strength and will make the right decisions.

What Does Everyone Want From Israel?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We disseminate our ideas so that the whole world will reach connection, but in the meantime there are many wars and conflicts all over the world. What can we do so that the connection will take place now?

Answer: First of all, we have to bring about connection among the people of Israel. With regard to the correction, whatever happens in the land of Israel, will also happen all over the world. All the problems in every part of the world, whether in Sudan or in the Basque region of Spain, will stop when the problems encountered by the people of Israel stop. This is where the root of everything is, and if we correct it, the whole world will calm down.

This is the reason that all the nations of the world blame the Jews: “Your are to blame that we feel bad.” And they are right. By that we should understand where the correction is: The abundance that the Nation of Israel can draw will flow through it to the world. In this general system, this nation is the link to the Light, but they cannot draw the Light only for themselves, they have to hold on to the intention for the whole world. Then the whole world will be peaceful.

On the other hand, as long as the Israeli nation doesn’t draw the Light, our enemies will not leave us, since the problem is actually not our enemies or our friends, but this is how the Creator awakens the Israeli nation to draw the Light for the whole world. Then the world will become similar to the Creator.

Question: So what do we lack in order to reach connection?

Answer: Just to be a bit wiser. We cannot digest this yet; we don’t see the system that way in order to understand that, we simply have no other choice. The general mutual connection remains invisible.
For example, there are still arguments about cutting Greece off from the EU, and although the Europeans already understand that it will only lead to new problems, they are still managed by financial considerations. They cannot take into account the real troubles that are expected.

Individuals, nations and all of humanity have not yet “digested” the globalization of the mutual connection of the general system. We are the problem, since we cannot disseminate the method correctly. We think that it is enough to simply study. In the meantime the inner fire is growing, and we are nearing an explosion. On a global scale and with regards to the Israeli nation the situation is very worrisome…

A “Pill” Against Terrorist Attacks And Wars

Dr. Michael LaitmanSpecial Edition: Events in Southern Israel

Friends, brothers, we need to find a solution to our problems. And for that we need to understand their true cause. They stem from the law of nature that develops us in a certain direction—towards unity.

Actually, it is not complex; however, this decision is contrary to our egoism, and thus we cannot see it. I do not accept the idea that I need to change myself; I do not understand what it means to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But time is running, and we will have to turn to unity, in the worst case, under the real threat of destruction. By definition, the people of Israel have to be “as one man with one heart.” And when it begins to realize its destiny, all the troubles will recede, all the storms will subside.

The main thing is to start. After all, a person gets strength from the environment. So, if we act together, everyone will start to change, by being included in the process. We teach children to be kind and sympathetic; we reprove their antagonism and conflicts. It is time for adults to work on themselves. This is a simple solution—a “pill” that is easy to take. Let’s try, and the results will be immediate. Why do we need wars and terrorist attacks? Instead of war, public opinion and working together should be used, and Hamas will step aside.

Let’s reflect on mutual guarantee—not to win over the external enemy, but over the internal one. And the rest will come. It is the people of Israel who should initiate this process that will spread to the whole world.

The Method Of Salvation

Dr. Michael LaitmanSpecial Edition: Events in Southern Israel

Under fire people begin to realize what mutual guarantee is. But how can they unite their hearts in earnest, without regard to the missiles? How can they feel like one happy family?

For this purpose, the method of Kabbalah has existed for thousands of years. This method is divided into two areas:

1. Education—a few lessons to introduce people to the course.

2. Joint events that allow you to experience what we still know only in theory.

What Are The People Of Israel Lacking?

Dr. Michael LaitmanSpecial Edition: Events in Southern Israel 
Today the Jewish people are lacking unity in the human stage of development. This is the “Egyptian exile”—when a person suffers from its own egoism. At first, he seems a good “king,” but over time it becomes clear that he sucks all the juice out of the planet and of ourselves.

By the will of this “Pharaoh,” we have polluted almost all that is possible, in nature, as well as in relations between us. There is a crisis, what is called the “seven lean years” when we realize that our ego is literally killing us. We want to use others, instead of being a guarantor to each other.
