How Is It Possible To Help A Man?

Laitman_089Question: How can I help my husband become spiritual?

Answer: First and foremost, he needs to study in a group. It makes no difference if we are talking about a man or a woman in the physical body. For example, if, on the screen in front of me, I see a group in which there is one man sitting in the back and all of the rest are women, I actually relate to them as a group of men because I perceive them according to their longing.

I see that these people are very strong. They are trying and longing to develop spiritually. Indeed, their form is female, but this is only a mask and a unique physiology, nothing more than this.

In spirituality, to give birth, to feed, give, breast-feed, and develop are the actions of a man on a Kabbalistic level. From within himself, he grows and gives birth within himself to the next level. He develops, nourishes, and takes care of it. So, is this the role of a woman or a man?

We need to consider everything according to a person’s spiritual deeds and actions.

How Freedom Of Choice Is Expressed

Laitman_701Question: How is freedom of choice expressed in a person? Is he responsible for his approach to the Creator?

Answer: The truth is that we have no freedom of choice in that, either. Rather, our only choice is in awakening our desire to follow the path of development of all of nature.

Otherwise, we are under the complete control of the Creator. When a person carries out the program of creation before it becomes realized in him, in this way, he is realizing his freedom of choice.

You Are Crossing The Jordan To Come To Possess The Land

laitman_746_03Torah, Deuteronomy 11:31 – 11:32: For you are crossing the Jordan, to come to possess the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you, and you shall possess it and dwell in it. And you shall keep to perform all the statutes and ordinances that I am setting before you today.

“For you are crossing the Jordan, to come to possess the land” means to possess the desire you can correct. We can’t correct all of the desires at once. From all the vast number of the desires from our entire nature, we can only partially correct the desire called Israel that we can direct to the Creator.

Therefore, it is said that we are a small nation. It means that we can direct to spiritual correction only a small part of human nature. All the rest will be corrected at the end of the general path of correction, in the state of the final correction (Gmar Tikkun).

First, you must correct a small part of what is called Israel, and then the rest of the nations of the world.

Therefore, the Torah encourages us to enter the land of Israel with those desires that can be corrected, and begin fighting with the seven nations that inhabit this earth, in other words, to fight with oneself, destroying all egoistic intentions within me.

The desires that we win (correct), we will be able to gather together and create one immense, united desire, which will reveal the Creator.

The Torah speaks of how, after 2,000 years of exile, guided by the current day, we again must bring ourselves to the spiritual state in which our ancestors were, and win over the rest of humanity. We must begin correcting not only ourselves, as a small part of the entire egoism, but the entire, huge, universal egoism.

I Do Not Want To Be An Ant!

laitman_929Question: Is it our future to become an “anthill,” from individualism to a herd?

Answer: An “anthill” with consciousness is the collective intelligence, the collective feeling that raises us to the next level.

A person doesn’t become an unconscious ant and doesn’t stop perceiving and understanding himself. He doesn’t lose his individuality, like birds or fish that move in a flock or school.

We remain independent because each one of us is an independent part of all of humanity. He can give to humanity what no one else can provide to the general system, to the one single body.

So, through our inclusion in the special integral connection between us on the level of Adam (Man), we rise to the next level of unity. We begin to feel the hidden sides of nature; awareness of the next level appears in us where we feel the forces that manage the entire world.

This next level has no connection to our world. We need to climb up to it.

When we rise to this next level with our new collective intelligence, with a collective desire, we exist outside of time, space, or change of physical location. We enter into the state of the infinite world, eternal and perfect.

This is not just becoming like ants.

Individuality is not nullified, rather it absorbs all of humanity because, as a fragment of the whole, a person must carry everything within him.

This is what the wisdom of Kabbalah is talking about: about the discovery of the maximal and absolute individuality of each one, where one person is equivalent to everyone.

A Man Who Resembles The Creator

laitman_236_02Question: I haven’t met a man who resembles the Creator yet. What does the expression “a man who resembles the Creator” mean? In what way does he resemble the Creator? Is there a chance that I can meet such a man?

Answer: A man who yearns to resemble the Creator tries to ascend above his nature and wants to resemble the Creator by bestowing unto others and by loving them.

By being part of a ten, I begin to practice exiting myself. By caring for the friends, I seem to fill them by yearning to be inside them, to push them forward, to fill them, to care for them just like for my little babies. I thus become similar to the Creator.

I ask the Creator: “let me understand, give me power, and let me care for them because then I will be like You. I respect You, I love this attribute of Yours, and I want to be like You. Therefore, give me the chance to care for them, and then I will be close to You.” Basically this is the real prayer of a man.

Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

What has gone wrong with the way women function in a global world? What special force is there in a woman and how can she naturally manage in the world once she receives the right education?

The approach of fighting for women’s rights is wrong. It leads to conflicts. This isn’t a female approach but a masculine one. Who is in control at home? The woman is. Why? Because she serves, loves, and connects everyone. Nature has intended a greater role for the woman than the one she fills today; she has to lead the change. The female way to attain something is by agreement and acceptance, not by force. If women managed the world, there would be no wars. Today we all need to be re-educated.

A woman is the driving force in the transition to a new integral world. She has to come out of her hiding place and lead things. It is not a revolution by physical force but by integral education, by educating to connect and to accept. Will there be differences in the wages of men and women in an integral world as we see today? A modern woman needs to feel that she is responsible for the whole world, like a mother.

Tomorrow is the tomorrow of women, because a woman is a home and today our planet is everyone’s home.
