The Modern Woman And Kabbalah

laitman_622_02Question: I heard that studying Kabbalah is forbidden for men who are under 40 and that it is totally forbidden for women. How can that be?

Answer: Baal HaSulam answers this question in great detail in the Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot. He says that there are no limitations, neither for men nor for women. There are no age or gender limitations.

There were women who were great Kabbalists throughout our history such as Sarah, Leah, and Miriam, compared to whom the men were like small children. There were many women who left their mark on history in their spiritual ascent.

There were women Kabbalists who were on the level of prophets. A prophet is a spiritual level on which a person connects with the Creator in a totally revealed matter. There were such women to whom others, including the, wise, elderly and experienced would come for advice regarding their spiritual ascent. This means that they were above the men!

Question: In modern times, women also study the wisdom of Kabbalah as well as aspire to reach high posts in the world of business and government. Does that mean that the men are not managing their role, and therefore women develop in this direction?

Answer: Yes, it indicates that we are nearing the end of the world. I am not saying this in a derogatory sense. It is a state in which men totally lose the desire to manage our world while this desire is ignited in women, which is a sign that our world basically has reached its ultimate state.

Summoning The Higher Program

laitman_626Question: To attain unity in our world and among all of the peoples is impossible. I don’t even understand why you call for connection. After all, this is impossible.

Answer: You are right; unity is impossible in our world! But we call for it. After all, it is mandatory and must be according to the law of nature. The only question is how it can be realized.

For the people, the call is just for connection. But  for us, it is a spiritual event that is organized by us, and so some kind of force of unity appears in our circles, which brings the concealed Upper Light, and unity succeeds specifically because of this.

It follows that it is precisely between us and not with anyone else in the world, and all of those are right who claim that it is impossible to attain unity on the level of our world except through attraction of the Ohr Makif (Surrounding Light). This is what is realized!

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 9/27/15

laitman_281_02Question: Where do thoughts come from?

Answer: From the management system of our world. Nothing is coincidental.

Question: What should I do if the people who are closest to me don’t develop?

Answer: Think about your own development. You cannot correct others.

Question: How does the wisdom of Kabbalah explain the appearance of disease in people?

Answer: This is how the upper management operates in order to restore a person’s spirit, that is, to guide him correctly toward the goal of creation, and, if not, to kill him.

Question: What can you do if it seems that the Creator has forgotten you?

Answer: Knock on the door so that He will remember.

Question: I don’t know how to live this life.

Answer: You simply have no clear goal. You should live this life in order to find meaning, the goal of your existence. A person wasn’t created in this world for no reason, but for a certain purpose. Find it!

Question: What have you personally received from the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: Personally, the wisdom of Kabbalah has given me a feeling of eternity, wholeness, infinity, the upper force, and the system of leadership, i.e., the feeling that I exist in a full volume of feelings and information that I am aware of.

Question: Do aliens exist?

Answer: No, and don’t expect them to come and visit you.

Question: Can we create heaven on earth, a place where everyone will enjoy?

Answer: Let’s build it. I don’t object. However, in order to do so, we need to change our nature from an egoistic one to an altruistic one. We will not be able to change ourselves, to change from receiving to bestowal, without the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Question: Will everyone attain the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: Absolutely everyone. It isn’t a simple wisdom, but it gives you a constant feeling of revelation, attainment, and inspiration. It is a Godly wisdom since the Creator, God, is the upper nature that includes everything. The attainment of the Creator gives a person the greatest pleasure. The wisdom of Kabbalah is the basis for everything, including your happy life.

How Is Freedom Of Choice Realized?

laitman_448Question: You say that everything develops according to a particular program, and at the same time you speak about freedom of choice. Isn’t there a contradiction here?

Answer: No, indeed there is a general program of development in relation to all of humanity and a particular program of development in relation to every person. However, going in the way that is intended for you, you can go against your will where you are pushed from behind through suffering like a beast or you can go rapidly in a conscious way like a human being. This is the entire difference.

Freedom of choice is an independent and conscious choice of forward movement, with a choice of accelerated development. It doesn’t exist for everyone else. But when you choose the conditions for movement and independent advancement, you determine for yourself everything that you perceive on the way, and then everything feels completely different.

Question: But a person always strives to be free. There is freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and so forth.

Answer: All of this doesn’t exist. On the level of our world, everything is determined from the start. However, we are talking about the spiritual development of a person where a person can advance only through realizing freedom of choice.

Question: Yet, how is it possible to choose a mate or a profession for myself correctly? Does the wisdom of Kabbalah speak about this?

Answer: No, it is only if you study the wisdom of Kabbalah and begin independently and consciously to advance forward in the proper implementation of your environment (group, teacher, method), then freedom of choice appears for you.

However, it doesn’t exist just like that! After all, I am an egoist, and at every given moment, I search where it will be better for me, how to find some benefit, to profit more. This is not freedom, but a search like a dog that looking for food in the street.

Question: What is the system that throughout life arranges all kinds of problems and blows for a person just so that he would begin to think and reflect upon the meaning of life?

Answer: This is an absolute system of connection between all of its parts. Therefore, all of us determine the fate of one another.

How Can We Enter The Upper World?

Laitman_049_01Question: How can a person who has not transcended the Machsom (barrier) determine which actions in our world will help him leave the world of Assiya and feel the influence of the five Lights of NRNHY of the Light of Ruach in the world of Yetzira?

Can a person plan this spiritual advancement, like somehow grabbing my ego and offering it a bait, for example?

Answer: A person who doesn’t feel the upper world cannot imagine what it is like to be in it in any way, and speaking about the transition to the next world is futile and makes no sense since we must change our entire instrument of perception!

Bureaucracy In The Health System

laitman_566_02Comment: There is a lot of talk now about the terrible bureaucratic situation in the healthcare system in Israel.

Answer: Doctors are generally the weakest organizers and business managers.

So, the treatment of people becomes a problem too because everything depends on proper organization. The healthcare system must administer the business, then everything will be better. A free or semi-trade union for the healthcare system is not effective.

Question: Won’t paying for medicine cause a public uproar?

Answer: Instead of general population paying for their healthcare, I would charge healthcare system for every shekel invested into it, so that they truly work for the benefit of people and treat them the way they should. This would be much more effective.

Today, our world is organized according to egoistic principles, and the healthcare system must be reorganized precisely according to that. Otherwise, we won’t achieve anything. If we were to introduce socialist principles into an egoistic world, they immediately would devour the entire system.
