The Secret Of Spiritual Pleasure

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why do you talk so little about pleasure from attaining the spiritual world?

Answer: I would talk about the pleasure, but unfortunately, it is not possible to convey it in words.

The Kabbalists write that if we add up all the pleasures of our world that humanity has ever experienced, is experiencing, or will experience at all times, it will be only a small spark in comparison to the billion times greater upper Light on the lowest spiritual level.

I didn’t believe them, but then I checked, became convinced, and I wish you the same.

Comment: One can only imagine how prepared a person should be to withstand the pleasures of the entire human history!

Answer: When a person works with the intention to bestow and not the intention to receive, he can pass all pleasures of the world through himself and not receive an “electric shock” because he becomes a conductor and not a receiver.

He is like a pipe that passes everything through itself to others, so he doesn’t enjoy the Light itself, but its derivative from filling others. This is the whole secret.

Unity, The Way To A Good Future

Unity, The Way To A Good FutureQuestion: In the course of the history of the Jewish people, we have gone through complicated situations: exodus to the land of Israel, establishing the nation, and maintaining relationships with the allies and enemies.  

How can we explain the fact that the world supported the establishment of the state of Israel at first, whereas now this support has ended, and the people of Israel are compelled to struggle all the time?

Answer: At first, the nations of the world hoped that the Jews would begin to carry out their historical mission, to be as it says in the Torah, “a light to the nations” (Isaiah 49:6), meaning that we would show an example of unification for all of humanity.

In the past, in ancient Babylon, the Jews began to carry out this mission under the leadership of Abraham, and today it is up to us to finish it. In the wisdom of Kabbalah it is said that specifically at this time, we are beginning the realization of the final state of humanity.

So, throughout history, it was up to us to advance gradually toward a state of unity. When we succeeded in this, it was good, secure, and comfortable for us. When we could not do this because of internal conflicts between us, we suffered a fall into terrible states, as in the example of the Holocaust.

Question: The great Kabbalist of the 13th century Nachmanides (RaMBaN) said that we were commanded by the Torah to govern in the land of Israel that the Creator gave to our ancestors, that we should not leave it in the possession of other people, and that we should not leave it entirely uncultivated within all of its borders, which the Creator swore to our ancestors, not leaving even part of it.

We know that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become a bargaining chip in the world today. In this context, how would you interpret the statement, “and not leave it in the possession of other people?”

Answer: From the point of view of Kabbalah, I could say only one thing: If the Jewish people won’t begin to unite at least within Israel, not to mention the entire world, we will not succeed in holding our position in this land and will be expelled from here again. If we can unite above all of our contradictions, not only will we hold the land of Israel, but no one will claim ownership of it.

Moreover, the Palestinians will relate to us loyally and will begin to cooperate with us happily. Everything depends only on how much we connect among us. In fact, through the connection between us we will begin to manage the good forces that can be discovered in our world. We have no other way of attaining a better future.

The wisdom of Kabbalah speaks about the internal structure of the world and about the forces that act within it. This is the hidden and secret part of the Torah, which talks about what is concealed from ordinary people. A person who wants to attain the essence of existence can learn the wisdom of Kabbalah and understand that only unification opens the way to a good future for us.

The Uniqueness Of The Wisdom Of Kabbalah

laitman_214When we compare the wisdom of Kabblah with natural science, we discover a number of similarities and differences. According to Kabbalah, “a judge has only what his eyes can see.” Since this is purely a scientific approach, a person has to approach corporeal sciences and spiritual science in the exact same manner, which means according to the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Everything ordinary science uses is also typical of the wisdom of Kabbalah: attainment, repeatability of statistical data, graphs, etc. The wisdom of Kabbalah isn’t blind faith but attainment. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, faith is the feeling of the upper world, which means the feeling of the force that fills the world and manages it wisely. This is also the difference between the wisdom of Kabbalah and other sciences that perceive only the outcome of the upper force at the level of our spiritually still world.

The wisdom of Kabbalah explores the actual governing force that ordinary people in our world don’t feel or perceive. In order to do so, they have to acquire corresponding attributes that are similar to this force. According to the physical law of equivalence of form, a person can feel only what matches his senses. Only then can he explore the single, upper force of nature.

Kabbalists record and process of their studies as data, drawings, graphs, and so on. They also claim that the Hebrew alphabet is made of special symbols that signal the different connections and ties of the two forces of nature, the positive and the negative.

In fact, the Hebrew and the Aramaic language mutually complement each other, and they appear as a result of studying the two attributes of nature, bestowal and receiption, that are at the basis of all the actions and phenomena in our world, the positive and the negative, etc.

Since the wisdom of Kabbalah relies mainly on the attainment of the basic force of nature, it is more accurate, more broad, and much more profound than all the other sciences; it is the universal wisdom.

This is also expressed by ancient philosophers and philosophers of the Middle Ages, scientists, and Kabbalists. Moreover, according to recently published Newton’s diaries, he  studied Hebrew and Kabbalah and from it learned the laws he wrote about.

The uniqueness of the wisdom of Kabbalah lies in the fact that it requires a person to create additional new senses unlike corporeal sciences, which study the nature using our pre-defined senses. Kabbalah is a science for any person who development an additional sense within himself or herself.

There is the force of bestowal in nature, the force of the mutual connection, that we cannot perceive because we don’t have the inner sensor, the receiver that perceives it. We cannot feel the force of bestowal or measure it, so we don’t know anything about our existence. We know only a small part of the creation and it is rather one-sided.

The wisdom of Kabbalah is a science that tells us not only about our world, in which there is one force of receiving, but about all of creation that is made of two forces: the force of bestowal and the force of receiving. Scientists don’t understand this at the moment, and only perceive very little of this. The problem isn’t the human mind that is meant to serve the small egoistic force, but the need to feel the whole volume of creation, which manifested within us.

It is actually this need that pushes a person forward. A person understands that he has to attain the meaning of life, its reason, root and purpose. Without them there is no meaning to life.

Scientists speak about the attainment of the human state while the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us about its root: what manages a person, why, for what, and toward what. At the same time, Kabbalah explains what we are have to change inside us since we can investigate the upper force only to the extent that we are similar to it.

And most importantly is why does a person study it? This is also the major stumbling block. A Kabbalists studies in order to care of others, to help others for the good of others, which ordinary science, in principle, doesn’t do.

Ordinary science investigates what exists and it’s not interested in how to apply this. Kabbalah offers its services to politicians and to the rich who then twist scientific achievements the way they want. A Kabbalist, on the other hand, studies and changes the world within him, and politicians or the rich have no use of it.

Turn And Journey And Come To The Mountain Of The Amorites

Turn And Journey The Torah, “Devarim,” 1:06-1:07: The Lord our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying, ‘You have dwelt long enough at this mountain. Turn and journey, and come to the mountain of the Amorites…

Turn and journey—go and correct yourself internally.

Come to the mountain of the Amorites—to a desert place that doesn’t have water and food, where you will exhaust yourself spiritually, and only unity will give you the ability to feed on the upper force, called MAN.

You have dwelt long enough at this mountain—your egoism is already realized in receiving Torah, the upper energy. And now start to apply the Light that is in you, and with its help correct your egoism.

Mountain—from the word Irurim (doubts, disturbances). Every next mountain or desert in which you wander for 40 years is the period when you gradually reveal within yourself new egoistic voids, contradictions, and doubts and correct them.
