The East Has Gone To The West

laitman_430In the News (Pravda.ru): “So Europe this year will get a million-odd migrant workers with all the surprises it implies. …

“…is it possible to dramatically change the immigration laws in the European countries, to cancel benefits for refugees, and temporarily limit their entry?

“To do this, the whole of Europe to decide in each country individually to do this is unrealistic. In every country there are certain circles who say, ‘No, you can not close the way these poor refugees.’ That is, it is theoretically possible, but practically it is hardly possible to do it.

“The most effective, but also unrealistic – is to try to arrange the normal conditions in the countries where the refugees are.

“Europe’s population – 500 million people. A million immigrants coming this year – it is not even one percent,  a quarter percent. …

“…. You sucked all of Africa’s wealth – now you have to share with them.

“Europe will have to share their wealth. It is not necessary to destroy the house and the whole country. You want them to have joined the Western European democracy? Here they have it and are attached. You wanted Iraqis, Syrians and others to live the same as in France or Germany? They come to you. It’s just a pity the Americans can not in any way share their way of life with 10-20 million refugees who go around the world through their own fault.”

My Comment: This migration will not lead to the dissolution of the Arabs in Europe, but the “dissolution” of Europe itself. Even Russia will deport them to the West.

The Need For Spiritual Search

Laitman_109Question: How does our reality help us advance in spirituality? Can we consciously pay attention to any signs so that we can advance according to them?

Answer: There is only one sign that clearly shows that a person can begin to engage in attaining the upper world. It is the emergence of the most serious question about the meaning of life and the yearning for the world that will help him know what he lives for. Otherwise, he simply has no reason to live! It isn’t indifference or depression, but a yearning to discover the essence of our existence.

In this state, it seems that a person cannot do anything, “Leave me alone! I don’t want anything.” But this isn’t a descent—although it may be what we expect—but a state in which he is drawn upward toward where he can attain the source of his existence, the source of life.

Question: Will everyone feel the yearning for the search of the meaning of life, for reaching the upper world?

Answer: Gradually, more and more people in each generation feel the need to discover the upper world. Forty years ago when I began studying Kabbalah, very few people were interested in it. And today there are hundreds of thousands. I hope that there will be millions in the near future.

We see this in the number of people who are depressed, use drugs, and are detached from life. These are all signs of the lack of meaning in life.

So I think depression is a normal disease because a person’s physiology is healthy while his psychology, which means the soul, begins to feel the need of spiritual search.

Objective Experiments

 Question: The starting and ending point of the spiritual path are predetermined. How is it possible to reach the endpoint?

Answer: The fact is that when we attain the wisdom of Kabbalah, we grasp it in our personal internal Kelim (instruments), and even though we are repeating the results of the scientists, the previous Kabbalists who already went through these experiments, we discover them in our own way.

Ultimately, they are identical, yet not identical because here enters the connection between the rigid experiment and psychological inner perception, and this is individual.

Thus, the understanding of a Kabbalist is simultaneously both objective and subjective.

Question: What is the difference between the concept of objectivity in the wisdom of Kabbalah and in conventional science?

Answer: A normal person perceives a scientific experiment outside of himself, on some material, for example, on a screen where he tracks what is happening.

And what the researcher sees, others also observe because all of this can be measured and compared. If it requires special training, it is possible to be taught, and completely the same image will be observed.

It is not important if your observation, of say of a certain glow, is slightly different from the observation of another person. You don’t take this into account.

In Kabbalah, the perception and the attainment happen within a person. And as each one of us is created from a different set of properties, our perception of the revealed field we discover for ourselves.

On the one hand, the gradations and characteristics of this field are identical for everyone; on the other hand, each one perceives them differently within himself. In addition, there is the further possibility to combine these perceptions to reach an even greater external and higher attainment.

The Solution To Terror, Part 3 –The Concept Of National Unity

laitman_259_02Question: The concept of national unity and the revival of the people has the smell of fascism.

Answer: If a person cares about himself, his family, his party, or his people, it is always possible to accuse him of fascism and nationalism.

But everything depends on the intention, that is, what goal he wants to achieve: to control other people who live outside of his nation or within it, or to bring good to them.

According to this criterion, it is necessary to examine the intention and not stick a label on it. If I call for the unification of our ranks and unification of the people, then first and foremost, it is necessary to examine the goal of this unity. Is it for the benefit of the world or to harm it? Otherwise, these are baseless accusations.

Not all unity is fascism. Can the Kibbutz movement be called fascism? Everything depends on the answer to the question of for what are we uniting? I don’t intend to cause harm to someone through our unity, including harming the Arab population in Israel.

Every people must protect its uniqueness, its characteristics, its views and inclinations. We attain unity above all these differences, and this is what acquires all the richness and diversity of unity.

It seems to you that unity will make everyone into robots with identical faces. This is certainly not talking about unity of this kind.

However, we see, on the one hand, that the world is becoming more and more mutually linked, but on the other hand, each people is becoming more and more developed and isolated. So, how is it possible to connect these two tendencies together? Each one aspires to stand out, but all of these individualists must connect, be inserted under one umbrella.

We must attain unity like this without damaging the individuality of any person or any people.

Our Strategy Is The Unity Of The Nation

laitman_629_2Question: I understand that, when you speak about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, you reveal the root of the problem, but if I’m attacked with the intent to kill me, what am I supposed to do?

Answer: You should kill the assailant first, but that doesn’t help solve the conflict. You only temporarily get distance from the problem, but don’t get out of the situation.

After 2,000 years of exile, we were returned to the land of Israel in order to unite and become a single people. Only in this way can we change the world in giving it a new system, a new paradigm, a new view of humanity.

Today, humanity has become integral, global, connected, and completely closed around this small planet. We are experiencing a single system that is mutually dependent, and only our good, mutual relationships can save humanity from destruction.

The correct relationships are found within the Jewish people, and we must reach unity and connection, as it is written, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” It is possible! Only in this way can we become compatible with nature and reach a normal, calm, and good life. Nature doesn’t agree to less than that, and it pushes us to this.

Question: But man who is on the level of this world demands death to the terrorist! He wants to stop the conflict with force because the terrorists are only afraid of force.

Answer: It won’t work! Because the world has its own laws, which are more internal! We see that America, Russia or any other country is able to do what it would like to do.

Moreover, no one will come to protect us. To the contrary, everyone is ready to trample on us, and we have no friends in the international community. However, they will appear if we begin to realize the system of integral, mutual cooperation between us. Then, everyone will change their attitude toward us immediately! We are not dependent on anyone else for this.

Question: As much as I understood, our tactic is as follows: If someone comes to kill you, kill him first.

Answer: Yes, this is because if you are killed, you won’t be able to realize yourself, you won’t be able to begin to unite and connect with others. So in this case, you need to get ahead of the attacker.

But our strategy is to unite the nation.
