The Secret Of Eternal Life

Laitman_720Question: Where does the force of love, due to which we exist, come from, from the earth or from the sun?

Answer: The force of life is called “Light,” and it comes from everywhere, from all of nature. We exist within this field.

But since we are egoists and want to receive only for our own benefit, we can absorb from it just a tiny spark of life, the minimum force that supports our physical animal existence. All of nature is filled with the energy of life, but our egoistic desire allows us to absorb from it only a minute portion that can revitalize our body for a limited time.

While a person is young, he is able to extract more vitality from nature. And as he ages, he becomes increasingly tired and gets less and less vital energy, until it dries up completely.

Question: Everyone dreams of revealing the secret of eternal youth; why does one get tired?

Answer: Because people do not know the secret that allows you to live forever. The secret is that a person must correct himself, become similar to the upper force of nature—such as giving and loving. Then he will be able to receive more life energy.

This life energy is unlimited and is called the Light of Infinity. And only we egoists limit our abilities to receive it by wishing to use it for our own benefit, and therefore we receive only a tiny spark of life from this endless source.

A person seemingly stands near a rapidly flowing river and scoops out energy from it with a small cup  to support his life. While he is young, he still manages to scoop up something. But then he gets older, becomes tired, and he does not have enough strength to get this vital energy for himself.

But he himself can become similar to this flow of Light and exist within it. Humanity has not yet revealed this secret. This patent is intended for everyone, but we must reveal it gradually. We need to be ready for it and be developed enough to understand how to use it.

After all, for this we will need to rise above our nature, which is completely egoistic and aimed at receiving, consuming, and filling oneself.

Here, a person has to switch to the opposite approach in order to receive only what is necessary for his body and to have no other worries about himself, but only to take care of how to convey this great Light of life to all of humanity.

I am beginning to think not about myself but about all the others, and thus become like the upper force, the Light of life. Then I go into it as if into a river and become as eternal and perfect.

Jewish Anti-Semitism, Part 1: Our Own Hangmen

Laitman_509Question: Why do so many Jews stand behind the organization of the boycott against Israel, including Israelis?

Answer: Within the Jewish people, according to its ego that rises above others, lays an impulse to be detached from their Jewish identity. As a result of this, people in whom this drive exists particularly strongly want to demonstrate to everyone that they are the opposite, that they are concerned for “the good of all peoples,” that they are not Israelis.

There were similar examples in Hitler’s Germany an in American leadership. It is a well-known that a ship of Jewish refugees from Europe attempted to escape from death in the concentration camps and reached the United States. At that time, a Jew who was close to the American president advised him not to accept them. As a result, the ship was sent back, and the people perished in the gas chambers. This happened more than once. And here we need to understand that it is natural that it is specifically Jews who foment anti-Semitism all over the world.

Question: What is natural about this?

Answer: If we don’t receive the right education, the lack of internal orientation leads some to the opposite, egoistic end of the spectrum. It is not by chance that many American Jews are directed against Israel and want to sever all ties with our nation. They prefer to assimilate among the local population and become exclusively Americans. I saw this recently at a symposium of American Jewish organizations in Washington.

This is our nature. This is the inner root of our people that wants to escape its destiny, and its destiny is to show the entire world an example of good connection and unity that solves all problems. As long as we don’t do this, the nations will come to us with complaints without their understanding that the root cause is themselves.

Throughout the entire exile, the hatred toward Jews and anti-Semitism counteracted the tendency in our people toward division. So, if the pressure of the outside forces weakened, we ourselves would retreat from the burden of the “Jews,” and nothing would have remained of us. “Really, why should I be a Jew? Why should I suffer? What is the benefit of everyone hating me? It is better to disappear and forget everything.”

To be continued.

A Patent For Happiness That Is Open To Everyone

laitman_944Question: You say that the role of the Israeli nation is to unite and to set an example to the whole world, but won’t this unity and the resulting success in the economy antagonize our enemies even more?

Answer: Unity is the only thing we should accomplish and all the nations will welcome it gladly and gratefully. Positive unity can never harm the world. By uniting we fulfill the law of the upper nature and therefore cannot invoke any harmful effects.

What is more, by uniting we lock the general system into one symbiotic relationship: the still, vegetative, animate nature, and mankind. All of nature becomes one harmonious connected whole. This is the only thing the world lacks.

The modern global crisis stems from the fact that all humanity is mutually connected but at the same time people hate one another. Therefore we have no time to stall; we must fulfill our unity and the world will become balanced. Our connection and the love we feel for one another will unite us all. Everything depends on education. We don’t need much money and resources to achieve that. We only need to educate the nation according to the principle of unity, and the wisdom of Kabbalah gives us this method.

Question: What will the united Israeli nation be like?

Answer: Everyone will suddenly wish to have more or less the same standard of living and the same responsibilities. We will work only for our basic necessities and will not produce things for which there is no need, except for making a profit.

We will dedicate all the free time we will have to strengthening our unity, and thus will begin to discover the upper world, the level of nature in which we exist even outside our bodies. We will discover a world that is above our egoism, the upper spiritual world, and we will feel it as real as the world we live in now.

We will discover such internal connections between us through which we will begin to discover nature; we will find out that we are all connected and that each one feels everyone else. The feeling of this general network that ties us all is called the revelation of the Creator to man, the revelation of the general force of nature that governs our life.

Let’s at least try to listen to what The Book of Zohar and the wisdom of Kabbalah tell us about the basis of the creation and what they advise in order to solve the problems of the people and the whole world. They can all be solved by the simple unity of people.

We cannot unite only because we don’t know this simple patent, but if we accept it and fulfill it we will discover how simple and accessible it is.

The Truth About The Boycott Of Israel, Part 5

Laitman_182_02Here, it follows that the boycott is to our benefit. It brings us closer to unity because otherwise, without unity, the people of Israel would simply not be. They wouldn’t exist.

The boycott is a clear sign of what we need to rebuild, the people and the nation, such that we would be compatible with the name “Israel,” which means Yashar El (Straight to the Creator). I am not justifying those who are organizing the boycott. I am looking at the general process through which we need to pass. Our people could have started the unification even before the boycott.

We have talked about this for years, but we haven’t been heard us. It could be that, now under the new conditions, they will hear us, and if not, then without a doubt the boycott will become stronger, and we will need to establish mutual connections under much more difficult conditions because it simply is possible to lock us within the borders of the nation and prevent any outside support. It is enough to make the boycott legitimate, and it will be impossible to ignore it. For example, if the European Union on higher levels would make the appropriate decision, then all of the European nations would have to obey it.

The same thing affects the United Nations, UNESCO, and the rest of the international organizations as well. In this way, all of those who help Israel today and maintain contact with it would turn their backs on us under pressure from the rest, and then we would be left with nothing, nothing with which to fight, and nothing to eat. We would feel ourselves under siege here.
