Climate Refugees From Africa

laitman_955Comment: The media covered events related to the migration of refugees from the Arab nations who have flooded Europe. But there are also environmental refugees.

In South Africa, nearly 14 million people are starving. The predictions are most terrible. Desertification is rapidly coming to the continent, claiming an additional 10.6 kilometers per year.

In addition, there is the effect of “El Niño”; the significant raising of temperatures of the Pacific Ocean west of Peru and Ecuador in South America leads to not only warmer climates in extensive areas in the world and hurricanes, but also conflicts and wars.

Answer: This is all part of a single, reciprocally connected system. It seems to us that we are separate from nature, that we can hide, warm up or cool down, invent greenhouses and the like. But nothing will solve the climate problem. For example, the Indian Ocean is now undergoing enormous changes and is beginning to dry up. This is affecting all of Asia whose population numbers around 4 billion people.

The media are hiding many facts regarding the changes in nature that are threatening to destroy the planet. We need to reveal them gradually, to understand their interrelationships, their integrality, and our influence on them through our opinions, community, and mutual connections. Humanity, as the highest level of all of nature, influences nature through thoughts and emotions much more than all the “El Niño” phenomena and the “desertification.” If we were to begin to be involved with a correct connection between us and bring ourselves to the form and likeness of the general system of nature, to mutual guarantee (Arvut), we would calm everything down. If we create balance on the level of Adam (Man), this will automatically pass to the levels of the animate, vegetative, and still, and obligate them to become balanced.

Question: What must we do to begin to become balanced?

Answer: Education is required and nothing else.

Comment: But this is a long, drawn out process.

Answer: No. If humanity needs this balance, it will work out very quickly; humanity will immediately stand poised, ready for action, like a rabbit that stands on its hind legs when it is faced by a mortal danger.

Question: So he needs to feel that he is facing a mortal danger first?

Answer: If we don’t, then we wait until we get serious blows, through which we will reach this necessity anyway.

American Debt To China

laitman_547_05Question: Masses of residents in China went out to celebrate in front of a special clock that was set up in Beijing that presents the constantly growing American debt to China. To date, the debt stands at 19 trillion dollars. What is this? Isn’t this an absurd economy?

Answer: Our world cannot exist otherwise, it works by logging debts, and if we stop producing useless things, the world would stop. Factories would stop working, unemployment would increase, we would have nothing to pay, and we could not print money and things like that. So we would need to distribute money in some other way so that the world would continue to turn.

Question: Do you mean that people would not earn money but simply receive it?

Answer: That doesn’t matter, people must have money so that they can buy something with it, and everything turns on that basis, including the treasury departments, various advertising agencies, and so forth. It is as if everything is evolving and striving to go forward, even though this is long gone. It is an absolute bluff.

The Chinese are celebrating because without them things would collapse. They agree to register a debt that will grow to another 10 trillion, the main thing being that everything will continue to turn, since if you stop the modern “machine,” which requires us to work to get money and buy again and again, there will be a collapse, an immediate halt to the entire world. So no matter what we do, the main thing is that this will not stop.

But we are not really in a world in which people supposedly determine the laws; rather, we are in a world in which there are particular internal natural laws that we don’t know. The wisdom of Kabbalah reveals them by explaining that we are approaching the date for submitting the bill, and accordingly we will need to pay.

Question: What would happen if we didn’t buy and sell anymore?

Answer: Everything would begin to stop. We would hope that this stop would be gradual, and that during this holding action we could explain to the world the nature of the holding action and how to overcome it. Only one way exists, which is to change the characteristics of a person, his nature, and through this, the mutual relationships between people and our entire financial system.

This means it is necessary to change the connections between people based first and foremost on “give and take.” Nevertheless, the basis of “give and take” remains, but its purpose changes. Instead of self-interest, it will be for the sake of our common unity so that we will all be connected into a single whole as in nature.

In this case, you can act like you want according to the principle of “give and take,” but the intention, the direction, the purpose, will be changed. Then we will work differently; each one will invest all his energy and receive the necessities of life according to his needs and no more than this, while all of his energy, his movement, his goal, will be directed toward transforming the world to become round, mutually dependent. This does not mean the bad form of mutual dependence as it exists today in which we want to tear this dependence apart; on the contrary, we would want to make mutual dependence for the good, through mutual guarantee (Arvut).

We will reach this, but it will not happen immediately. Development happens under the influence of the system in which we connect between us constantly and discover more and more in the depth of our connection. The world is gradually beginning to subconsciously feel grasping through whatever fibers of the soul that there are, that the only network to be discovered is the correct and good mutual connection that can save everyone.

New Life #638 – The Good Ones
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

The wisdom of Kabbalah obliges us to reach love thy friend as thyself. Mutual guarantee will fill our country with a good spirit. When the connection between us is good, we are compatible with the general good force of nature and can bring it closer.

Once we were as one man in one heart, and when unfounded hate broke out we were destroyed. Now we need to rebuild ourselves. Our good future depends only on the connection between us through which our sense of security will improve and our enemies will be neutralized. Our spiritual leaders explained that if we are connected, no one will want to harm us.

Beyond mutual help, the project of “The Good Ones” also includes a PR campaign, discussion circles, in home meetings, and more. If we stop wanting to kill one another in potential, our neighbors will no longer want to kill us in practice. We will be good to one another and the whole world will be good to us. It is an equation that everything works by.

We have to radiate a spirit of connection and set a good example with our neighbors, at work, on the road, and in the media. There is the potential of goodness in every Israeli; it is in our DNA, and this is how we gathered around Abraham. The “Good Ones” is a positive wave meant to awaken the dormant love that is concealed in us. Mutual help in addition to a PR campaign about why it is important to connect will build a zone of security around us. If we connect, we spur the good force in nature and it balances the evil in us.

We tell our children that they should behave nicely to others, but we actually forget that. Let’s create good waves of connection between us, and they will spread like ripples from Israel to the world.
