How We Can Change The Situation In Israel: The Point Of Universal Balance

laitman_933Question: The main role for which we were born is to reach the state of “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” It turns out that the terrorists who go out to the streets can be called “angels” who push us to fulfill our role.

Answer: Angels are not cherubim with wings, but forces that carry out orders from above, nature’s orders.

The force of gravity also can be called an angel, just like other forces in nature: electric, magnetic, etc. They stabalize the general balance in nature that constantly shifts and changes to the positive or negative sides of the common center.

This is the point that reveals these forces and others in every aspect. From the positive side, we can offer someone a helping hand, a hug, give a piece of bread, or help in other ways through culture, science, and so on.

It is the same from the negative side. One can kill, slaughter, humiliate, and harm others using the same science, art, and so forth. This means that these are all angels, forces through which the good and the evil are revealed in human society, and not only in society but in nature, too.

Israel is in the center between these two systems of forces and is the central point that can balance the whole system. We don’t destroy evil, but only balance the world and constantly keep this balance. This is the role of Israel and of the Jews.

Therefore, when anti-Semites say that we cause all the evil in the world, they are acknowledging the fact that they depend on us.

The World Crisis

 Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom the News ( ): “The world is in a difficult situation, problems are everywhere and the situation is becoming more severe. Whoever is managing the Earth is playing cunning tricks on us to continue to hold us in bondage. It is too late to discuss the problem of developing stability while conducting a war. The world requires a new consensus.

“We are living in a fragile world that is developing rapidly, with stability decreasing, with this becoming the new norm of our lives. Globalization has stopped providing its dividends. The United States is joining with 40 nations and negotiating trans-Atlantic free trade with the European Union. Russia is making its own Eastern-European union. China is also interested in it, and these blocs will compete. There is nothing good for the individual. The world is on the verge of the destruction of the basic economic paradigm of development. In the history of Europe there have been two cases like these in the past 2,000 years. These are the destruction between the 9th and 11th centuries, when the ancient economic model was replaced by a feudal model, and between the 16th and 17th centuries, when the feudal model was replaced by the capitalist model. Today the mechanism of capitalistic development is exiting. But as happens every time, this will continue for a few centuries and bring severe disasters. The peak of the crisis will be in the middle of 2016, with the possibility of the collapse of the financial system.”

My Comment: The collapse of the existing society with all its egoistic connections and forms must happen, and the sooner it happens, the better it will be for all of us. Because in that case, the collapse will be softer. The existing systems are based on the egoistic nature of humanity, and it must be understood that it has completely broken down.

We ourselves must want to change our nature, because that is precisely the locus of each against all, compelling everyone to build his own happiness on someone else’s misfortunes, causing a collision between nations and entire continents. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us how to move to the new world rapidly and happily, for the good of everyone.

“Withdraw From The Dwelling Of Korach”

laitman_276_02The Torah, “Numbers,” 16:23 – 16:25: The Lord spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to the congregation saying, ‘withdraw from the dwelling of Korach, Dathan and Abiram.'” Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him.

The Creator seemingly calls the congregation and says: Leave Korach and Abiram alone! Now you are the ones who can participate in the correction of the new level and not they! They have to die on this level, which means to refrain from using and fulfilling it, while we will proceed. This phenomenon happens many times in life especially among the people when the moment of mercy doesn’t work if they go against the major principles. But Korach has no other choice. It is an egoistic desire that wishes to be corrected, while Moses is detached from him because he is an absolutely pure level.

This is how we are shown that there are levels on which putting the desires to death is their complete correction. Only then are they born and can ascend because their Masach (screen) belongs to pure Bina. The correction of Korach is already the next level: Bina plus Malchut that operate with the intention of in order to bestow. Therefore, when Korach begins to correct himself, he will rise to an even higher level than Moses. Moses operates only until the borders of the land of Israel and then it is already the next level.

Under The Protection Of Nature

laitman_933Question: What determines a country’s strength—a large nuclear arsenal?

Answer: Weapons define nothing. Even belonging to military blocks or the protection of the strongest countries in the world doesn’t guarantee safety.

It’s the same as being in the pack of vicious dogs; you don’t know who they will bite the next moment. The only chance to defend ourselves is obtaining similarity with the upper force. Only Israel is capable of becoming the strongest nation in the world. The entire world depends on Israel.

The upper force is the general force of nature that supports all of its parts: inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human. We exist in the power network that governs us and stimulates our advancement.

First, on the face of Earth emerged inanimate nature, then appeared a vegetative layer, then animals, and the last was the human. Of course, it wasn’t accidental.

Our ignorance about the higher system of governance doesn’t release us from its impact. I have been studying this system for forty years now; I know its laws, formulas, methods of communication to ensure its positive response.

If Israel behaves correctly, the upper governance will organize the world in a way that nobody will ever hurt us or approach us with negative thoughts. Intifada, wars… will stop! All countries will be our best friends.

Question: Which force can defend us?

Answer: It’s the general force of nature that commands our thoughts and desires and defines our actions. Where do we get our thoughts and desires from? We obtain them from the network that governs the world.

We are inside a rigid and accurately organized system that rules us. Scientists confirm that every day a more intense connection among microbes, particles, waves, thoughts, desires, organisms… is discovered.

It only seems to us that each body lives its own life, but there is a cloud of numerous influences around us. The clouds “overlap.”

If we want to know how to provide strength and security, we must know the nature of the overall system. Otherwise, what makes us different from animals, they do not know what will happen to them in the next moment?

Movement According To The Ray Of Light

laitman_293Question: Baal HaSulam, the greatest Kabbalist of the 20th century, wrote in one of his letters about the possibility of a Third World War and even a fourth. What do the Kabbalists think? Will this happen or not?

Answer: The Kabbalists see the general system of management, the possibilities that are ahead for us. They see that freedom of choice exists for every person and for all of humanity.

There are two ways by which we move through all kinds of states: the way of suffering and the way of Torah (Light).

If we want to go according to the usual route of physical life, we think only about that and don’t invest effort in lifting ourselves above our world so this world will begin to bring us into an even greater blind alley ultimately compelling us to ascend.

However, before we decide to begin our ascent, we would experience intense suffering, including World Wars Three and Four, and other terrible situations. We see that nothing is changing for the better in the meantime.

Question: In other words, World Wars Three and Four are latent in the higher plan, and now everything depends on how much we, humans, are consciously included in the program of nature.

Answer: Not only this, latent in the program of nature are ecological problems, hunger, climactic blows, earthquakes, etc. All of this is for the purpose of shaking us so that we would feel a need for the next level of development, but all of this is through the beastly perception of the physical body.

However, if we want to raise ourselves spiritually, we combine this with completely different forces because we would begin to influence the system of management itself! Our lowest system won’t obligate us to go out to the next level. Rather, we ourselves voluntarily ascend to it.

Then, our participation would seem different, and the world would become wonderful. We would become integrated wisely in its management and go forward. We would understand why. This would change our lives completely and our attitude toward them.

A movement like this is called movement according to the ray of Light. The Light is ascent above our beastly existence. It is a desire to approach something higher.

The system of management is found above me. This is what I must understand, knowing that I must be integrated into it. The approach toward this is called the movement of the Light. Every person must go through this, and those who have not gone through it will go through it.
