Does The Creator Deceive Us?

laitman_608_02Question: What does the Creator get through the deception of our egoistic feelings in the imaginary reality that He shows us?

Answer: The Creator is not deceiving us. He has placed us within a particular perception where we are very limited and feel everything within us such that we will begin to ascend to another perception and begin to discover what exists outside of our senses.

We need to change our direction and go out of ourselves, becoming equal to what is outside of us, becoming independent, and beginning to develop these senses within us independently according to the degree of our effort.

That is how we begin to perceive the world that is outside of us correctly, not distorted by our egoistic feelings. This is a completely different perception through the characteristic of bestowal.

This is a perception of what is outside of us without coming into contact with it, without “swallowing” it into ourselves. By feeling it and not drawing it into ourselves and to the degree of our equivalence with the characteristics of what is found outside of us, we begin to feel what actually exists outside of us.

In this way, we bring out the property of bestowal, which is called intention. We begin to perceive the environment. The environment doesn’t actually exist. We perceive it according to the degree of the property of bestowal. Then we reach an understanding that this is the Creator.

The Human Mind And The Perception Of Reality

laitman_437Question: Speaking about the perception of reality through the senses, where are we and where is the function of the brain?

Answer: We perceive information through the five senses that were given to us by nature. This information is summed up within us and gives us a sensation of what exists outside of a person.

If these senses were removed, a person would stop perceiving all of reality and would not be able to explain what exists around him.

laitman_938_03Only a small amount of people, the so called “elite,” enjoy life in our world, and the rest become poorer and poorer. These people also understand that they are sitting on the crater of a volcano that is ready to explode. In fact, what pleasure do they have?

After all, it is impossible to buy happiness with money, and it is impossible to eat more than your stomach can hold. All their pleasure is only from the fact that they are above others and can use them. Egoism likes it like that.

The correct solution is to give a person real fulfillment so that he will not feel fear and competition like he now does. This is where the program of nature leads us.

We naively think that people are smarter than nature, but in fact, nature is smarter than we are because it created us. All our roots and sources are in it, and therefore it is worth finding out what nature does to us and what it wants from us. The wisdom of Kabbalah has to be revealed in our time and help a person understand the process our world is going through.

The evolution of the world advanced due to the development of egoism, the desire to enjoy. But now this development is complete. The desire that moved everything exhausted itself and turned into an overripe fruit that started to rot. Humanity must move to the next state.

The transition from the current state to the next one is possible through a nuclear war and the terrible suffering that will make humans wise up and agree with the program of nature. Only a small handful of people will survive such a war and they will eventually realize that they must change their way.

But we have an opportunity to reach this decision today by seeing the incipient state in advance. Then the world will tread a good path in its development. To do so, we must start building a system of integral education for the unemployed, which will become a factory for the production of a positive force in human relations.

Due to the fact that people will sit down and learn how to be together, they will rise, develop internally, build connection between them, and thus generate a good force. It will become a production factory to such an extent that it will be possible to measure how much of the good force was produced, like a the power station. If such a system of education were realized in the US, it would influence the entire nation as well as the rest of the world.

Each group of people, each “Ten” will work as a generator of the good force that balances the negative force and allows the entire world to exist in balance. It will become the new compulsory work for the unemployed, without which they won’t receive benefits. They will come to work every day and learn how to build a positive force between themselves—a product that is in short supply worldwide. There are two forces in nature: positive and negative. And due to this integral production, the positive force will start working in human society.

Hebrew – A Mathematical Language

Laitman_041_01Question: Is there a value to each letter in Hebrew or does the meaning exist only in the combination of letters into words?

Answer: Every letter certainly has its own meaning and is a force or a particular characteristic in itself. A collection of letters is a word or a directive that is precisely defined.

Hebrew is a mathematical language in which there are no abstruse, sensory or other nuances. Everything in it has been sliced, as if by an axe.

Everything moves around the roots of the words according to clear mathematical laws. The words have double or triple roots which have either a prefix or suffix added to it indicating whether it is masculine or feminine, if it is past tense or future tense, etc.

The language of Kabbalah is a language of branches, derived from a root which gives the name of the branch pointing to the root.

Everything Takes Place In Our Desire

laitman_571_03Question: The Book of Job describes how Job’s children, wife, and all his cattle died and how he sat afflicted cursing the Creator. Was he freed from his egoism through that? Is the fish that swallowed him his ego or not?

It also says in this book that the Creator speaks with Satan. How did the people who wrote this book discover that the Creator spoke with Satan about Job?

Answer: You are a bit confused. You should read the correct translation and try to feel everything to what is happening in our desire.

In Which Language Should One Study Kabbalah

Laitman_137Question: What is the connection between the Russian language and the Hebrew language and how can the Russian language help in studying the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: The structure of the Russian language is closer to Hebrew than other languages, at least closer than English, French, and German are.

My students who are living in Israel and in all parts of the world today learn Hebrew. Some of them know many words or speak and read in this language.

A person who studies the wisdom of Kabbalah cannot avoid knowing some Hebrew just as a musician cannot avoid knowing Italian or a doctor knowing Latin. All the great scientists who were involved with the wisdom of Kabbalah and even a science often knew a good level of Hebrew, because without it, one cannot enter into the depth of the wisdom of Kabbalah.

It is very important to know how to read in Hebrew. It is possible not to know the spoken language; the main thing is to know how to read Hebrew.
