“The End Of ‘Helicopter Money’”

laitman_202_0In the News (vz.ru): “The end of ‘helicopter money,’ or rather, the use of this strategy may come faster than expected by some politicians in the US and the EU. They think that super-cheap credit – is a temporary measure. But they are wrong.

“‘Scattering money from a helicopter’ – is an idea the US and EU financiers are repeating more often. Naturally, spreading the money is meant only to provide super-cheap loans to banks. About the unemployed, social benefits, or state increases to wages of millions of workers in the West, they are not talking. …

“”Providing easy money for the banks in the United States for the activation of consumer lending is a policy that has exhausted itself. …

“For the West, there is another alternative: returning to the development of the manufacture of those goods that for decades they have imported from China and other countries.”

My Comment: But this also won’t help because the current crisis is not a crisis as happened in the past. It is the manifestation of a new stage in the development of humanity. It is caused by the program rooted in nature, not by us.

According to this program, a person has to change and to turn into a social creature, which means to change his conduct from an egoist individualist to a person who is active in society, an altruist. This is actually the model of an integral world or a small village.

A person can undergo such a transformation only under the influence of the special force in nature that can be spurred only by implementing the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah. This is the reason it is revealed today.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 3/4/16

laitman_959Question: How can money be equal to bestowal?

Answer: It isn’t money but the efforts which are measured. Money is a bag of gold or silver, which is weighed and measured according to the force of gravity and how much of that force I have over the size of the bag according to which I can bestow. This is how it can be explained from the perspective of physics.

Question: What is the spiritual root of debts?

Answer: It is our debt to the Creator, which is manifested between us in this way.

Question: If my profession involves breaking the law, does the wisdom of Kabbalah distinguish between how money is made, or does money have no smell?

Answer: Money has no smell only if you don’t use it to harm other people.

Question: How should I relate to someone who borrowed money from me but doesn’t pay it back?

Answer: You have the right to demand your money back in any way you find fit: by taking him to court or any other way. But at the same time you have to take into account the economic situation of the person who owes you money. Perhaps he really cannot pay back his debt. In that case you should not “kill” him.

Question: Is the banking system a parasite living off society or can it benefit the world?

Answer: Today it is already a very big parasite living off society. The banking system is basically meant to convey money to places that are short of money. For example by being an intermediary in payment in industry, etc., but since the banks started thinking only about themselves, the banking system has become a parasite. The bankers receive huge salaries from the money that we deposit in the banks. What is more, they have billions in profits from using the public’s money.

Question: Money and success go hand in hand. Can one be successful by using the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: Yes, that’s possible but only if you begin to seriously engage in drawing the Upper Light unto yourself through the group. Then you will be happy, healthy, successful, and rich, both spiritually and in your corporeal life.

Question: If I find some money, do I have to look for the person it belongs to?

Answer: If you have no information who the money belongs to, then according to the Torah you don’t have to look for the person it belongs to. At the same time, according to the Torah, you may have to bring the money to the police.

Question: Does the obligation to work for a living also refer to women?

Answer: Today yes.

Beware Of The Poor Because They Will Bring Our Salvation

laitman_527_02Question: It says “beware of the poor because they will bring our salvation.” How are these two things connected?

Answer: The term “poor” means a feeling of worthlessness, emptiness, and a great yearning to attain the upper world. It is actually this state that pushes a person to acquire a filling and feel rich.

Search For The Woman!

laitman_602_02Question: The ancients wrote, “search for the woman!” Why were “free” women throughout history identified as the source of conflicts, separation, wars, and trouble?

Answer: That depends on the men not the woman. The woman, of course, has her own character: deceit, desire to possess a man to use him.

This is a purely egoistic desire of women that exists in all of us, including in men. Therefore, in our world the correction is placed more on the male part. In man there exists the feminine (egoism) and the masculine (the ability to correct the ego). And with women, the arrangement of the forces between the right and left lines, between the desire to receive and the intention to bestow, is different.

They are aimed more at their nature and depend on it. Men are more distracted from spiritual work because their involvement with women, since, as it is said, his biggest desire is the sexual desire toward women, especially after the destruction of the Temple, and as if with women, the distraction from the spiritual world comes from their dependence on men. Thus, the picture of their disturbances, if different, is wider and mutual.

Question: What does it mean that women are dependent on men?

Answer: A woman needs a man; she looks for and needs to be close to him, wants to be connected and is dependent on him because the desire of the woman after all, is to have a home and family.

Question: That’s if she is single, but if she is married, then what disturbances does she have?

Answer: Since a woman is focused only on family, on children, it swallows her, but nowadays many other problems exist, all kinds of side effects appear as a result of our approaching Gmar Tikkun (end of correction). In general, the disturbances on the way to spirituality are different and appear differently for women and for men.

A Characteristic Sign Of The Times

laitman_565_02Comment: Our time is differentiated from its predecessors in that people are more and more distant from each other.

There are many options today because television, telephones, all kinds of games, and all of the correspondence through the Internet helps us to move away from each other.

Also, today it is possible to order food and everything else that a person needs from home, so he has no need for anything else. Only if there is a problem that requires medical help, will a person turn to a doctor.

The situation is similar even at work. Every person has his own cubicle with a computer. Everything is arranged to allow us to communicate as little as possible with each other because contact is becoming more and more difficult and burdensome day after day.

And this is natural because our ego is constantly growing. We see that connections between nations, countries, people, in particular between individuals and especially between children and parents are becoming unbearable. This is so much so that a person will immediately “explode.”

A new culture of communication is appearing in which people are used to saying vulgarities. They believe that this is the norm, and incidentally, they are not offended. This is something that amazes me a lot. It is particularly noticeable in parliaments….

Answer: In parliaments, this is natural. There are special rules there. They can insult, humiliate, and sling mud on each other. Yet, they are not quick to turn to lawyers and file lawsuits because this is their job.

But the family, children, school, work, the streets, driving cars, and everything else have become very sharp and hard.

What is interesting is that people are getting used to dialogue like this. The pain threshold of the individual is becoming more and more coarse. If in the past they would say something sharp to me, I would react to it negatively. I would not tolerate talk like this. Today someone talks to me and I accept the same talk as a norm of communications between us and we are not insulted by it. Nobody thinks this is unethical and coarse.

In accordance with this, the trend is changing and art, television channels, theaters, and movies are showing old classics, or low-grade series.

We are moving toward a situation in which our world is becoming more and more coarse, opaque, and ultimately the emotional nerve cells of feelings die.

New Life #762 – Europe And The Development Of Humanity

New Life #762 – Europe And The Development Of Humanity
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Greece and Rome developed barbaric Europe; their philosophy came from what they learned from the sages of Israel. They drew the power and the wisdom from Israel and when Judah fell, Rome rose. When the spiritual power that was in Israel disappeared, Rome took away the crumbs and developed Europe.

Even Christianity was born from the remnants of Judaism after the destruction and the spread of Christianity developed the Europe. The role of Europe in the development of the world was to bring spirit, religion, science, and culture. They spoke about the values of beauty, freedom, equality, brotherhood, and so forth.

But people have not really changed. Until today, Europeans have been very conservative. In general, scientific development has no relation to human development. A person can be a barbarian with an atomic bomb in his hand.
