Where Does The Program Of Development Lead Us? Part 3

laitman_941Question: How will connecting into the circle affect the feelings of the people and bring them happiness and satisfaction?

Answer: In the connection between themselves, people will feel life on a higher level, above this entire world, as it is written, “You will see your world in this life.”

While living in the physical body in this world we attain a sensation of a new reality and right away start feeling a new degree, above our body, beyond it. Thus we transition from the sensations of this world to the sensation of the upper world.

Eventually our body fulfills its purpose and dies, like any other animal, yet the human within us already reaches the spiritual life. That is the goal of the wisdom of Kabbalah, to which a person cannot come by himself. We need to obtain this method from Above, from the next degree.

Question: If eventually one has to reach a spiritual life, why do we have to go though such a long process of development in this world in physical bodies?

Answer: We have to attain a spiritual degree by ourselves. If we were to develop toward it naturally, intuitively, like the vegetative from the still or the animate from the vegetative, we would  have remained inside nature. Man has the possibility to go against his nature and build something that contradicts it.

The entire nature is egoistic, in it each exists only for his or her sake. We want to reveal a new form of existence, opposite to our former nature. This is a so-called spiritual and it is the form of man, Adam, as it is similar to (Domeh) to the upper force of nature, which is pure bestowal and love.

Question: What is the relationship between the reality we feel now and the spiritual state that should clothe us? Will we continue to live a regular life in this world?

Answer: This is an absolutely different form of existence, in different dimensions. It is eternal and perfect, beyond any restrictions and boundaries. This form is mentioned in cosmology and Einstein’s theory of relativity.

Science slightly touches the concepts that are beyond time, movement, and space. Human psychology is freed from all these restrictions and we transition to a new psychology: from introvert to extravert, to the sensations outside us.

Question: Speaking of the future state of humanity, how will people relate to each other after they connect?

Answer: Everybody will treat others absolutely like himself. It will be a form of a circle, in which all are equal.

Question: How is it possible if we are not equal; every person is unique.

Answer: Everyone is unique by nature, but we reach a universal equality because we love each other, each according to his or her abilities.

Question: Humanity has been talking about love of thy neighbor for thousands of years, but it hasn’t materialized yet. How is Kabbalah going to make it a reality?

Answer: It’s true, the idea of loving thy neighbor has been around for the past six thousand years. But in our time, we have reached complete disappointment with our development, our existence on this earth. And now people are starting to ask, “What are we living for and why?”

If previously a person used to be preoccupied with what to buy and acquire, nowadays he asks about the meaning of his or her life. In the face of full material abundance, people feel disappointment and emptiness, which further locks them inside themselves and brings further separation. The future form of humanity is fully connected and integral, which is directly opposite to what we have today.

And that is why the method that attracts a special external force, what is called the Light that Reforms, the force of Light that starts working upon us and solders us with each other.

All that a person needs to know today is how everyone can connect together in order to reveal the upper dimension. Humanity has to enter it and be born in a new world. That is why the word “crisis” translates as “birth.”

Twelve Tribes, Twelve Critical Points

laitman_749_02Torah, Deuteronomy 12:13 – 12:14: Beware, lest you offer up your burnt offerings any place you see. But only in the place the Lord will choose in one of your tribes; there you shall offer up your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you.

There are only twelve critical points—Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut—which descend from above, and each of them is divided into three lines. In total, there are twelve (four times three) specific points that must be corrected in accordance with their properties.

Hence, each tribe has its own specific node, which it corrects first, and then the common property, because each tribe has its own special condition, a special property. Therefore, it is written, “In one of your tribes.”

There are specific dates for it; in other words, the states of the system that are called new moon, new year, weekday, Shabbat, and so on.

All of the tribes move separately, but at some point, they connect, then move separately again, and connect again. This is so in each subsystem, in each part of the overall system, called soul.

How Can We Attain Infinite Pleasure?

laitman_572_02Question: Can you explain what infinite pleasure means to a person, or must he feel it and attain it by himself?

Answer: You can explain it rationally, but a person can only feel infinite pleasure in a corrected desire. What does it mean to attain infinite pleasure? After all, the pleasure depends on the desire, and if I don’t have a desire for something, I cannot be filled by it and derive pleasure from it. Therefore, the more a desire for something develops in me, the more I will feel pleasure from it.

The main point is not receiving the pleasure, but being in contact with the source of the pleasure and then increasing your desire for it.

The Creator doesn’t prevent us from reaching His treasure, but we will lose our head if our desire is not corrected, we will not know what to take, what not to take, and why.

Therefore, we need to prepare our desire in order to discover the treasure and enjoy it. The desire for it must be real, eternal, and it must keep growing all the time. Everything depends only on that because the Light is in a state of absolute rest.

“Is It Time For A New World War?”

Laitman_417In the News (Vesti Finance): “Calls for fiscal stimulus sound louder, but the state of the economies of developed countries in some respects is very similar to what the world has seen before the start of the Second World War. …

“Now the debt burden of developed countries, according to the IMF, has reached a peak since the Second World War.

“But investments have reached the lowest level since the same period. …

“So can artificially initiated global conflict be started to address these problems? In addition to the next round of growth of public debt, as the war requires money, which will have to spend, we’ll also see mass employment and investment to rebuild cities and economies after devastating conflict. Problem solved, right? …

“Economists and governments are trying to find ways to solve the problem, but are unable to do so. And we can only guess what their decision will be if, in their opinion, a new world war will be the only way to save the economy. ”

My Comment: And another solution will not be found. It is written in Kabbalastic sources that there will be third and fourth world wars if we do not start restructuring humanity, and this will come only through the re-education of people to form the “Last Generation.”

The Secret Of Immortality Of The Jewish People, Part 4

laitman_947Question: What is the component in the people of Israel that makes them eternal?

Answer: What makes these people eternal is the connection with the Creator, called the “point in the heart.” The Jews have a desire to connect to the upper force. When it binds to the Creator, it activates the mechanism by which Light can be brought to the nations of the world.

Now, we have no means to give Light to other nations, therefore, they don’t believe that the Jews have something good. Subconsciously, they feel that the people of Israel bring them misfortune. Therefore, the nations of the world don’t like the people of Israel, ostensibly for no reason. This hatred is above their nature since, in fact, it comes from a higher degree than ours.

The eternal point in the heart is a desire to reveal the upper force and connect with it.

Question: What if I am a Jew, but I don’t feel the desire to connect with the upper force? Am I connected with eternity or not?

Answer: So, I am going to receive blows until I feel this point within me. It is a desire that leads to the question about the meaning of life: “What do I live for? What is happening in this world?”

This is not a philosophical question because it is about the relationship with an upper force from which come all of the desires and all of the disclosures. I am asking about something that is above my success in this world. This world and my success in it doesn’t interest me because I am asking about the eternal process that happens in the universe and above it, beyond time, motion, and space, about happened before our birth and what happens after death.

I discover that our stay here is not limited by the animalistic existence that depends on whether the body is alive or dead. I develop a craving, an aspiration, to the upper degree, to eternity.

The point in the heart is the connection with the upper force, the general force of nature, and it exists in all people, not just the Jews, because the Jews mingled with the peoples of the world during the years in exile. However, the strongest points exist in these people who once came with Abraham from ancient Babylon, then built the temple, went into exile after its destruction, and exist to this day.

Question: Does the fact that the Jewish people survived and continue to exist prove that they indeed are chosen by the Creator?

Answer: It is a historical fact that the Jewish people went through the centuries, despite all attempts to destroy them. Although these people are not numerous, this mere fact is not proof.

The proof comes from the revelation of our connection with the Creator, which offers the connection of the Jews with all of humanity as well as their duty to connect with the upper force so that, through them, this force would pass to all of the nations of the world.

From the animate level, where we exist today in our biological bodies, engaged only in servicing them, we rise to the degree of man. A man, Adam, means similar (Domeh) to the upper force in love and bestowal. In order to do so, we connect as one man in one heart and become included in the desires of each other, reaching the love of our neighbor as ourselves.

If there is at least a little more love for each other inside the Jewish nation, then this nation, as well as the rest of humanity, will begin to feel themselves as living in the upper dimension together with the Creator. On the one hand, the people of Israel connect with the Creator and, on the other hand, with all of humanity, and the upper force fills all of us with its Light. In this way, we become eternal and perfect as it is.

The upper force is the fulfillment that transmits its energy to us and gives all of the inhabitants of this world an infinite and beautiful existence. Today, the Jewish people are eternal only by virtue of their mission, and then the entire world will become eternal according to the final result of development.

New Life #605 – Where Are Israeli-American Relations Headed?

New Life #605 – Where Are Israeli-American Relations Headed?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

The US needed Israel in the past in order to balance the forces in the Middle East, but today the US has lost interest in this area. The general attitude in America is: “We don’t need Israel anymore.”

We have to get used to a new reality and not look back. The only aid and weapon we have is the connection between us. The Americans will do everything in their power in order to crumble Israel from the inside and to sic us against each other. They will drain all the brains from Israel with money.

Israel will either collapse and disappear from the map or unite and turn into the world spiritual superpower. No other country will want to be in contact with us. We will not be able to travel abroad. We will be totally isolated and then we will have to decide where we are headed. The connection between us will show us what we actually have to give the world.

The world is nearing an economic, cultural, and educational crisis. Different systems will collapse because of the lack of connection. Only we will be able to heal the situation and to revive the world. We have the method of connection, and this is what the world needs like the air we breathe. This is an Israeli product.
