New Life #621 – The Secret For A Good Year
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
What should we expect in the coming year? How can we make sure that the new year will be a good one and why is it actually by the revelation of evil between us that we can turn the coming year into a good one?
The new year can be a good one if we understand that the past year was a bad one. It is a time for introspection. Society is beginning to realize that this isn’t the state we have dreamed of. Evil is being revealed, and thanks to it people realize that the situation we live in is false. This is a very important step toward the truth.
We have to discover where the remedy is. It is concealed in the Torah, in its internality, in the wisdom of Kabbalah. It isn’t about becoming religious, but about the revelation of the upper force that connects us, the Light.
The goal that Israel should set for itself in the coming year is connection. Connection means being able to connect to others and to fulfill their desires. We are all parts of one system.
The world hates us because we don’t function properly. We don’t set an example of being connected. When we begin to feel that we depend on each other we will realize that there is no other choice but to learn to connect.
We are called Israel stemming from the words “Yashar-El – straight to the upper force of nature,” the force of love and giving. Once we understand that hatred destroys us and we try to connect, we will discover that we need the upper force.
The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us how to use the upper force in order to correct the corruptions in our lives. Our egoism depicts all the problems, and the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us how to draw the upper force that corrects it.
A good year is a year in which we will feel the upper force among us, the force of love and giving. This change is natural, like a child grows; we feel the force of nature that develops life.
We have to develop a desire for God to dwell among us, the force of love and giving, the connecting force. Once we recognize our evil state, we will reach the desire to anoint this force as our king, and this is Rosh Hashanah (the head of the new year).
