Look For A Solution On A Different Level

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: It is said you should do everything in your power,” and then it says that we should expect help from Above, what kind of help could it be from Above if it said ,”He gave a law that cannot be broken,” which means that everything is already predetermined?

Answer: We are given great help from Above because we are in a new era. Everyone finds themselves in a state feeling that there is no solution or to be more accurate that there is no solution on the current level. But this is a positive revelation since it will force us to stop looking for the solution on the old level and to ascend to the next level where the solution actually is.

The solution is not to solve the old problem but to see the state from a new perspective. We will see a new goal, a new state, and a totally different encounter: not between one another but between us and the Creator.

Question: So it turns out that “He gave a law that cannot be broken,” has changed now.

Answer: The law has changed since the leadership that descends all the way to our world has changed, we find ourselves on a new, more revealed level.

Question: Can we expect mercy from Above then?

Answer: We will receive according to the way we act, but mercy from Above means that even if I don’t deserve anything on my current level but I ask for it and develop a new desire by the influence of the environment, by self annulment, by subduing myself, then the Light that Reforms comes and fulfills my request.

The mercy from Above is in accordance to my efforts, which means that I have earned it, but I don’t necessarily ask for what I receive since I don’t know what to ask for and what to focus on, and therefore it is called mercy.

All Of The Work Is Within

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn fact, we are found in the world of Infinity; there is no other state. However, in our minds, in our senses, as a result of our desires being egoistic and damaged, we feel a state called “our world” instead of the world of Infinity, and so, in principle, the only thing that we are doing is correcting our senses, correcting ourselves.

Question: If I want to feel the Creator, is it enough for me to sit in a circle and be integrated with the friends?

Answer: Theoretically, if you were in a circle all the time and were to work on your connection with them all the time, then you would have no more need for anything in life, nothing!

This is the ideal physical, mental, and emotional form within which it is possible to work on all of the nuances of our connections, all the way to the spiritual ones, without exception.

Question: And nothing additional is needed?

Answer: Not exactly. We must go out to the world and take all kinds of problems from them. However, again, this is to increase the connection between us even more.

Suppose that we completed some mass of work among us, some egoistic density, and we connect. However, this is not enough to reveal the Upper Light. From where can we receive an addition? We begin from within our circle to go out to disseminate, attaching an egoistic mass to ourselves, an even greater density, and this helps us to come closer between us because we are working above it.

We must go out to people in this manner. However, in principle, all of our work is within, in our circle.

Beyond The Negativity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How must one work optimally with the negativity every person and every group of people gathers?

Answer: We don’t work with the negativity in us. I don’t want to know or hear about it, I don’t want it to burrow into me.

First of all, this is very unpleasant, and second this is called eating oneself, as it is written, “The fool folds his hands and eats his own flesh” (Ecclesiastes 4:5). “Look, I am like this! And why did I do this at all!? In my past there are things like these! … And in general, all my life …” So, all of this is incorrect, absolutely erroneous.

Our attitude toward our correction must be positive; I am going only toward the good, only toward the good!

This is because if I think about something bad, I am not connected to the Creator, not aimed in His direction. If there is already something wrong, this is a sign that the Creator is to blame, and, if I am bad, this is also a sign that the Creator is to blame, and if there will be something bad in the future, then it is certain that He is to blame.

This means that I don’t have to think about this at all. I only need to invest effort to connect with others. This is what I need, and it depends upon me!

All the rest doesn’t depend upon me. So, why do I need to think about this? All the rest will be absolutely ideal if only I constantly concentrate my attention on maximal, optimal connection with others in a circle, because a circle is the image of the Creator.

Question: Does negativity belong only to one person or can it belong to a group of people?

Answer: Certainly a group has its common ego, and we need to rise above it. We hold onto only positive thoughts. We don’t criticize ourselves or others in any way. We try to rise above our ego all the time and connect there.

So, in principle, a person cannot be in such a state where he is not in excitement and elation, where he feels negative emotions, and,if he has states like these, this means that he is not in contact with others and especially with God.

The Essential Secret Of The Jews, Part 5

From the book, The Essential Secret of the Jews, M. Brushtein, Chapter 1, Abraham’s Forecast:

“The Whole World Is One Family”

Shut Down the US

What happens if the US were shut down? Just close it. Like a kitchen door. There was a kitchen in which someone was cooking something, and now we face the door that does not even have a door knob.

Indeed, what is the use of it? From the USA. By the way, there is a good excuse. Why, I’m sorry … they flooded the whole world with green bills? Close it and then take and share them.

The problem is that this cannot be done!

Why? Because they don’t want it? Or we cannot? No. There is another reason. If we close the US today, tomorrow I, you, and even they will have nothing to eat, meaning no food. Isn’t the connection between the Ukrainian borscht and America clear? Between brandy and cognac and Uncle Sam?

It’s very simple. Borscht and cognac cost money. Because beets for borscht and grapes for cognac should be grown. And how can they grow if there are no pesticides. A desired chemical is produced, for example, in Asia. They will not take Rubles for their product, and they have never seen the Ukrainian Grivna. It turns out that dollars are necessary for those who live in America, and for those who don’t live in America and never will live there.

Richard Duncan, the author of The Dollar Crisis, wrote that the normal state of the global economy depends on the USA.

There are plenty of scenarios of the aftermath of the cessation of the export of dollars. The world community could respond, for example, in the following way.

Central banks, mortgage banks and other banks stop giving dollars because they do not get any anymore. Now China cannot sell knitwear nor France buy oil.

Desperate optimists offer “bunnies” and Shekels for goods. But the buyer does not share their optimism and politely declines. Euro currency is not enough for everyone, and for a long while, no one has seen gold and doesn’t remember what it looks like.

The population starts to stock up with things you cannot manage without in such a situation: automatic weapons and canned meat.

Stores don’t order goods; manufacturers produce nothing. Ships are in ports; the unemployed roams on the streets.

“Nike” sneakers gather dust in warehouses in Beijing, and coffee turns moldy in the port of Rio de Janeiro. The American farmer is left without pesticides, the French gourmet without condiments, the English unemployed without jeans.

Aircrafts turn rusty; the population empties grocery stores and warehouses. There is no running water; there is no toilet paper, and medicines depleted.

Soldiers sell machine guns and dry rations. Unfortunately, the winter is unusually cold; the summer like never before is sultry and the fall too rainy.

An old woman with a crutch wanders on the streets. Her name is devastation. Wars begin. For the bread, water, fuel, and butter…

Yes, the USA cannot be shut down, as well as allthe rest…

By the way, who is to blame for this global collapse? Isn’t it clear?

A recent survey showed that 63% of Poles believe in the worldwide Jewish conspiracy to seize control over the banking system and SMI.
