The Cause Of Hatred Toward Jews

laitman_531_02-jpgQuestion: What is the reason for hatred toward Jews?

Answer: Briefly it could be said that people hate us instinctively and naturally because we are not attracting the Upper Light. More precisely, in this regard they have no direct approach to the Creator, but only through us.

But the revelation of the wisdom of Kabbalah to all the nations of the world in our time makes it possible for everyone to approach the Creator, which depends only on the realization of a person’s desire.

And if a person has a desire for the Creator depends on the individual relationship of the Creator to the person, which depends on person’s location in the collective soul.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 3/6/16

laitman_599_01Question: Can a woman advance in spirituality if she mainly watches the men’s group on the screen?

Answer: Of course. A man can also advance in spirituality if he only watches the men’s group on the screen. Everything depends on the desire, the assertiveness, the persistence, and the yearning.

Question: Is it possible to find the ideal husband with the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: It is not possible to find an ideal husband and there is no need to look for one either. The wisdom of Kabbalah cannot help here. The ideal partner for men and for women is the Creator.

Question: Do a husband and a wife draw further away from each other because their attributes change?

Answer: On the contrary, the different attributes enable a husband and a wife to get even closer to each other above all the differences.

Question: Has your wife attained the attribute of bestowal?

Answer: It is our private family secret.

Question: What is the spiritual root for a coupling of a man and a woman?

Answer: This phenomenon has no spiritual root. Similar actions that take place in the spiritual world are called coupling of beating, which we study when we study the spiritual Partzufim.

Question: I want to study the wisdom of Kabbalah but there are other things that interest me more, what should I do?

Answer: You have to find out what is more important for you in life.

Question: If a husband and a wife study together, watch the lessons together, read the sources together, and have workshops, do they need a group?

Answer: They will actually feel whether it is important to have a group or not. But they should both agree on it. If one of them still wants to be part of a group he or she has the right to do so.

Question: Can a father and daughter interact like a Kabbalistic group?

Answer: No.

Question: Is there such a thing as great love in the wisdom of Kabbalah? Not falling in love, but a great love between a man and a woman?

Answer: If you are referring to love between a man and woman in our world, it has nothing to do with the wisdom of Kabbalah! The wisdom of Kabbalah engages in the relationship between the souls, while in our world we engage in the relationship between physical bodies.

Question: Why do so many women who study the wisdom of Kabbalah find it difficult to find a husband?

Answer: Do other women find husbands? I think your question refers to general statistics. In our group, on the other hand, couples get married all the time and have children. Of course there are problems, but the rate of divorce compared to the world’s is scant.

Question: Does the wisdom of Kabbalah have a special approach to everyday life? How could it be that a Kabbalist has to somehow change his actions? For example, engage in his spiritual work for a couple of hours and spend the rest of the time living anyway he wants to and let everything work out by itself.

Answer: No one is forcing you to do anything differently. You can act this way! But then you will see that the wisdom of Kabbalah gradually fills your daily life. When you advance you will feel that you can also implement your spiritual work while you work, in your everyday life, and also when you communicate with others. Why not it if you can profit from it?

Kabbalists’ Experiments

laitman_276_01Question: In the natural sciences, experiments are carried out in order to understand nature. Do Kabbalists also carry out experiments on the upper nature?

Answer: Kabbalists have nothing but these experiments. But they happen every second because a Kabbalist is in constant communication with the effort of friends in the so-called Kabbalistic guild.

When one interacts with like-minded people, they have the possibility to vary their desires and strengths in certain combinations together. As a result, they have an infinite number of mutual combinations, and thus they affect the Upper Light.

All of this happens while studying the primary Kabbalistic sources when they are in contact with the Upper Light that affects them, moreover, while they themselves affect the Upper Light. One-to-one, everyone is affected by this.

Thus, there is a huge influx of information. But it isn’t difficult as it comes to the Kabbalist not in quantities, but in feelings. The Kabbalist swims in it as in music; all is absolutely harmonious; one grasps the very essence of harmony and therefore doesn’t get tired. On the contrary, one just develops from this, filling with supreme peace.

Egoistic And Spiritual Concern

laitman_565_01Question: Is it working in bestowal if I worry about my close friends and about my neighbors? Does it bring me closer to the Creator?

Answer: No, it doesn’t bring you closer to the Creator. It is simply corporeal concern for others. The Creator is revealed between the students of the wisdom of Kabbalah when they focus themselves correctly to help each other ascend to the level of the Creator.

Question: When I have a chance to bestow, I am happy because my egoism is pleased to feel that it is great and meaningful. Is this using the ego correctly?

Answer: Yes. A person has to ascend and be glad about his ascent. Helping the friends ascend to the Creator is bestowal, while caring for each other on the level of our world doesn’t help in any way because in that case it is pure egoism.

Question: So why do we see that in our world?

Answer: In order to prepare people for the right connection between them, but nothing more than that.

Young People Are Losing Interest In Marriage

laitman_547_05In the News (Russian Bazaar): “‘No one disputes the fact that the institution of marriage is dying, – says Bauer.- The question is how to deal with this fact. We can not turn back the clock and make the church a major institution in the country. Also, we can not force the young to have the reverent and sacred attitude toward marriage inherent in the older generations. So maybe everything that happens – is for the better ’

“If the ‘anti-marriage’ trend does not change, then already in 2025, Americans will be much more likely to get divorced than to marry.”

My Comment: Growing egoism separates people from each other more and more. Bringing them together is possible only by the upper Light. Studying the wisdom of Kabbalah spurs and summons the action of the Light. Otherwise we will see masses who are estranged from each other.

Is It Possible To Reach The Creator?

laitman_940Question: The Creator is in all of us, all seven billion people. It is possible to attain Him only through connection between people. If all seven billion people don’t unite, does this mean that we cannot reach the Creator?

Answer: In any case we are obligated to reach the Creator. The execution of the plan of creation doesn’t depend on us. It lies within nature and nature drives us to realize it.

The question is how to advance rapidly and easily and hasten our development through unity and connection between us and those who are around us; i.e., how do we connect the various cells to form the organs of the collective body, the collective soul, as quickly as possible?

Question: If not everyone is obligated to unite, is the person who studies Kabbalah able to attain the Creator alone, or is it possible only through the group?

Answer: A person cannot attain the Creator alone. After all, what he would he check, show, and reveal the properties of bestowal and love with? Relative to what, or whom? Regarding the Creator? And there is no Creator. One has to build it in the connection between and his friends.

Create A New World

laitman_572_03Torah, Deuteronomy 4:15 – 4:19: And you shall watch yourselves very well, for you did not see any image on the day that the Lord spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire. Lest you become corrupt and make for yourselves a graven image, the representation of any form, the likeness of male or female, the likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the heaven, the likeness of anything that crawls on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters, beneath the earth. And lest you lift up your eyes to heaven, and see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, which the Lord your God assigned to all peoples under the entire heaven, and be drawn away to prostrate yourselves before them and worship them.

Question: How can we not see the images and statues that surround us?

Answer: There is no Creator and no upper world. We ourselves need to create them within us. This is very difficult to understand, but the wisdom of Kabbalah explains how we perceive the existing reality, how we depict it in our qualities, and how we make sure that, in fact, there is no me, not my body nor surroundings.

There is only a desire within which we perceive everything. All subjects and events are images drawn in my desire! There is nothing else! However, it seems to me that they exist in reality because such are my qualities.

Now, I need to understand why I perceive this world that way, how I rise above it and create a new world within myself from my new qualities. I create it by changing my qualities and beginning to exist in both worlds, in the upper world and in this world at the lowest degree of my qualities where I have idols that I worship.

The matter of our world is given to us in sensations, and then what? Apparently, there is another kind of matter that can come into my sensations, and I will be able to control it.

Therefore, I create new worlds with five degrees in each of them, five degrees of the world of Assiya, then of the worlds of Yetzira, Beria, Atzilut, and Adam Kadmon. I ascend 125 degrees to the world of infinity that includes in itself absolutely all of the worlds and everything that exists because I fully reveal my desire in which I previously used to feel something in a very limited form and  called it the world. “World” (Olam) comes from the word “concealment” (Alama).

Now, I move to the world of infinity where everything is revealed fully because all previous worlds become included in it and dissolve there. There, I feel just a white light that is called the Creator, and together with Him, I am on the level of absolute knowledge and a sense of infinity. This is the state we must reach.

New Life #728 – The Book Of Zohar And The Power Of Good

New Life #728 – The Book Of Zohar And The Power Of Good
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

It is good to keep The Book of Zohar in every home because it brings people close to the essence of the wisdom of Kabbalah.

After the destruction of the Second Temple (Beit HaMikdash), Rabbi Shimon and his students wrote The Book of Zohar from the connection between them in a group of ten. The Book of Zohar explains how it is up to us to connect with each other to draw upon the good power of nature.

Today we require the good power just as we need to breathe air. So The Book of Zohar has been revealed with the “Sulam Commentary.” It is written: “’And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart’ (Deuteronomy 6:5), with both of your inclinations” (Mishna Berachot 9:5).

This means that there is a power in The Book of Zohar to build the good inclination in a person, and with this trait he can build a positive force to balance between people who want to connect with love. When a person acquires the good force in addition to the evil force, he can penetrate inward to the divine system.

In the years of exile, the Kabbalists hid the wisdom of Kabbalah from the people because the people were not ready, while today they are ready.

The Book of Zohar is intended for every person, and so we have published an edition of Zohar for the People that is very approachable by everyone. The Book of Zohar brings the power of the Messiah to our lives, the power that can draw us out of the ego to love.
