Neither Trump nor liberals realize that changing the world is changing ourselves, our ego, first. By undergoing universal re-education.

Re Trump’s Muslim Ban: If the fight between liberals and nationalists won’t stop, it may lead to the rule of… Islamists.

The orchestrated outcry over the immigration ban is a hypocritical attempt to delegitimize Donald Trump

The American dream can no longer be sustained by increasing debt. The middle class is impoverished and ready to fight for its rights.

Wishes For 2017

laitman_240Question: In the future will there be more people who have attained spirituality?

Answer: Ultimately all people will reach the spiritual state. My wish for you is that you will attain it in 2017.

But don’t rely on various predictions or astrological forecasts. Don’t believe in any other future than the one you create for yourselves; even though you really want to believe in it, no other kind of future exists.

Everything depends only on the unity between us. We can arrange everything such that it will truly be good for everyone. Humanity is doing everything except for one thing; it is not advancing toward unity. Our role is to prove to the whole world that we only require correct, equal, simple unity.

In the meantime, we are not going this way, and the ground slips from under our feet. We see what is happening today. Soon nobody will be working, there will be no need, neither to work nor to earn money.

I hope that in the coming year this situation will become clear to us and we will finally build the right society, rise a bit higher above our prejudices, and understand that all of us are fragments of one single soul. If we connect them, a collective soul called Adam will be created that will already exist in another dimension, on another level, in eternity and wholeness. That is what I wish for everyone.

I very much hope that this year will enlighten us and will make it possible for us to understand more sharply what is happening, where we are, and what is happening with us through our dull, smoky and “thick-headed” intellect. Then there will no longer be a need to explain anything to anyone. Everything will be clear to everyone.

Let’s try to dispel the fog in our hearts and minds and to be closer to each other! Here’s to health, success, and a future that we build for ourselves!

Miracles Don’t Happen

Laitman_632_2Question: Can a Kabbalist insert power and pass it through a corporeal object?

Answer: There are no miracles in nature. All the actions that Kabbalists perform, which we read about in Kabbalah books, are only actions in the upper world. In our world there are only physical laws that operate and nothing else! Therefore, don’t invent any miracles, and there have never been any.

Don’t translate the spiritual language into corporeal language according to concepts that you seemingly understand, like bread and water, for example, are the attribute of Hassadim. It is better to immediately begin to study how to penetrate the right structure of the language, which is only about your attributes, about bestowal, receiving, and how to be more connected with each other in order to discover what the book says.

Not one word in the sources refers to our world, because this world is all that we feel in our ego! If the ego did not exist, we wouldn’t feel this world. When we correct ourselves, we begin to feel our world in attributes, actions, and mutual altruistic relations, and then we also easily understand the Kabbalsitic language. Our world and its physical laws exist as long as we are in our egoism. When there is no ego, this world will disappear.

The only miracle in our world is when a person ceases to care about himself and begins to care about others.

How Can I Give Up My Familiar World View?

laitman_628_4Question: The wisdom of Kabbalah was concealed for ages and endless methods of different philosophies have dominated humanity. The wisdom of Kabbalah is a certain worldview. How can I give up my familiar worldview in favor of the Kabbalistic one?

Answer: It’s very simple, all the other methods give us nothing. People will gradually find out that the other methods aren’t good.

Of course, will help them with our explanations, but they have to find out themselves. The wisdom of Kabbalah doesn’t compel or force anyone. But undoubtedly, a person must still actively find out exactly how he can change his life.

At The Point Of Choice

laitman_760_2At any point of our spiritual state there are two ways. Therefore the phrase “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse” (Deuteronomy, 11:26) is repeated many times in the Torah.

This phrase is relevant at any given time because people are given freewill. A man is a creature that understands, feels, knows, and is able to realize the freedom of choice.

If at every moment of his existence he doesn’t see that there are two ways in front of him and he isn’t certain which of them is a blessing and which is a curse, then he is not a man but an animal that is urged forward by evolutionary development as a stick prodding him from behind.

But he considers himself a man because he is in concealment, and he doesn’t even realize that he doesn’t decide anything by himself. He’s  like a marionette in the hands of a puppeteer.

Therefore the words “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse” are addressed only to a person, who through the study and implementation of Kabbalah, has reached an understanding of the paths that are in front of him: a blessing and a curse, and he can choose only one of them. He doesn’t have another alternative if he is at the level of implementing freewill. And if he doesn’t realize it, he is not a man.

Therefore, it is written about all the people in the world that they are like animals, apart from those who, with the help of Kabbalah, reach the level of freewill.

Receiving Light Through The Teacher

laitman_582_01Question: A student receives all the Light of his soul through the teacher. Is the teacher the source of it, instead of the world of infinity?

Answer: If my soul, the teacher’s soul, developed before your soul and you happen to be my student, you receive from me according to the spiritual hierarchy. As my student, you are my spiritual child. The system of the souls is mutually connected. The souls that have undergone their correction partially or fully and have ascended to a certain level conduct the Light to the other souls.

Everything is arranged this way in a sequence. On one hand, you add your ego to me, and, on the other hand, thanks to your ego, I conduct the Upper Light to you. Then you also conduct the Upper Light to someone.

In fact you are already doing it but not consciously.

New Life #340 – Freedom And Independence

New Life #340 – Freedom And Independence
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Under what conditions will we truly feel free? What should we do and how does our feeling of freedom depend on building relations of love, closeness, and connection between us?

We have gotten used to all sorts of limitations that life imposes on us and it is within these limits that we are seemingly free.

Different desires continuously rise in us and we have to work hard to fill them. We are slaves to the beast inside us. We will reach a state in which there is abundance and everything one may desire in the world, but the question “what am I living for?” will torture us.

Today people in different places aspire for political independence, but this will not give them a sense of independence either. No one can isolate himself from others and feel free in today’s integrated world.

We will be able to feel free only when we annul the borders between ourselves and others, like a child in his mother.

Today I look at everyone with envy. Everything they have drives me crazy, their cars, their homes, their lawns… Escaping from the stress we feel is not a solution since it keeps coming back. We have to build relations of love and friendship. The frustration people feel today stems from the lack of the right good connections between us. There are barriers and limits.

We will be able to feel a good, unlimited, free life only when we are connected like organs in one body.

My Thoughts On Twitter, 1/30/17

twitter

Nature is already an interconnected system at the still, vegetative, and animate levels. Humans have to become consciously interconnected.

In the US, the revolution is bloodless. The EU should consider a general “Exit” to avoid war. Otherwise, even extreme far-right will ensue.

As society begins its correction, the method of correction—Kabbalah—is revealed, shedding light on all aspects of society.

Revealing the world does not mean overcoming cosmic distances or digging into matter but delving deeper into our consciousness .

Humanity has evolved to realize that it is trapped by the ego and then to come out of it is either by suffering or by the light. The choice is ours.

We live in selfish, egoistic interests that limit our perception. By breaking free from them, we discover the eternal, upper world.
