Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 9/18/16

laitman_281_01Question: Are all the obstacles we encounter in our minds or are they created by the Creator?

Answer: All the obstacles are created by the Creator to help us advance.

Question: Is the Creator among my friends in the true reality?

Answer: The Creator is between my friends, but not in the form I belong to now. When I truly exit myself and enter them, I will discover the Creator between them.

Question: What attributes does one need in order to attain the true reality?

Answer: Only the attributes of bestowal, an intention of bestowal.

Question: Is the illusion temporary and reality fixed and eternal?

Answer: The right and true reality is not only eternal, but it is beyond all boundaries, beyond the frameworks of time, motion, and space. It is simply the Upper Light.

Question: What is the human body and is it real and not imaginary?

Answer: A body refers to a desire. Real refers to a desire with an intention in order to bestow. Imaginary refers to a desire with an intention for your own sake.

Question: Will everyone see the same reality in the attribute of bestowal, in altruism?

Answer: Not only will they see the same reality, but they will also directly participate in it; they will be one unified soul.

Question: How do you relate to civilizations beyond our planet earth?

Answer: I don’t. There is no one out there. There is no life here or anywhere else, nowhere except in the upper world.

Question: Will a person who attains perfection see and perceive everything in the true reality? Will he see himself, his physical body, as a reflection in the mirror?

Answer: Even if he is totally free of the intention for his own sake, which means that he has attained the highest state of correction, the body will still exist in the same form it is, because the body exists on the levels of the still, vegetative, and animate nature, whereas he is corrected internally on the human level. This is the reason that it is not reflected in the body in any way. Physically, even a great Kabbalist can be ill whereas the most primitive man can be healthy.

Question: Do we have to ascend above our ego or should we correct it?

Answer: The correction of the ego is to ascend above it. It is the same thing.

Question: If everything is the Creator, is everything that does not resemble the Creator an illusion?

Answer: No, it isn’t an illusion, but you may say that it is an illusion in our feeling.

Question: How can I determine that I am ready to perceive the Creator?

Answer: If you have a desire for it, you already have everything else. It is because we establish groups, classes, and publish a lot of information on the Internet. Everything is before you, everything is revealed.

I am really pleased that I have managed to lay such a foundation during my lifetime and I hope it will continue to develop. You have everything, including great help from the Creator; you have everything from Him. All you need is a desire and to be a bit more organized.

Question: Why has such important information about life and the perception of reality been concealed for thousands of years?

Answer: Because until now humanity has not reached the crisis that we are undergoing today. For thousands of years it was not fully ripe, whereas the current crisis shows us to what degree the ego is finite and has already exhausted itself.

Now it will only kill us. Humanity developed until about 50 to 60 years ago and now we are beginning to fold; now we are only killing ourselves, sinking into depression, drugs, divorce, unemployment, and wars. The ego has developed us to a certain point where we lived its development and now we have reached its final phase. Now we have to ascend to the next level.

The next level is the human “Adam” level stemming from the root “to resemble – Adamah” in Hebrew, which means to resemble the Creator. Here we have to develop on a totally different level.

Therefore, we have to begin to engage in the wisdom of Kabbalah and to peacefully enter the next world.

Marx’s Predictions Come True, Part 9

laitman_229In the near future, the unemployed throughout the world will total 80% of the world population. In order to somehow reassure them without bringing this critical situation to the point of a new world war, it is first necessary to provide them with an adequate income, which must be done in any case.

Secondly, we need to provide them with integral education. Let them sit down and learn to unite. The world today doesn’t need anything else. And so it will rise until it reaches a spiritual level, and then physical sensations in general will begin to fade.

Question: But shouldn’t change come from the top? Would the elite want to listen to this?

Answer: Those at the top will be interested in these changes because the fear that riots might begin will force them to listen.

After all, each unemployed American keeps two or three guns at home. They can start rioting tomorrow. Therefore, the elite should be very interested in organizing a system of integral education and providing an adequate income to the entire population of the American Rust Belt.

The egoistic fuel has burned out completely. The world has stopped getting egoistic pleasure from life and is looking for new opportunities. In the end, it will lead us to the need for integral education.

Spreading integral education is the most accurate realization of the wisdom of Kabbalah in the last generation. There is no other work that would be more accurately directed to the purpose of creation and to the upper force.

All of the abstract theories are nothing compared with this practical work to organize people on a massive scale so that they will unite at least a little bit and begin to reveal a positive force between them. This will cause huge, positive changes, not just in human society, but in the upper system that affects the entire world.

How We Perceive The World

laitman_928Comment: Recently you explained the subject of the proper perception of reality, more precisely of creation. But currently, I cannot perceive this.

Answer: We do not perceive information from the outside through our five senses, as it seems to us.

The senses through which we perceive our Ohr Pnimi (Inner Light) are organized within us according to the degree of equivalence and resemblance of our desires to the Light, to the Creator. To the degree that He is revealed in our system of resemblance to Him, which is called HaVaYaH, it becomes our spiritual senses.

To the degree that we improve and change them to bestowal, we begin to perceive the changing world, the Light that is closest to us.

Why Did Kabbalists Hide Their Books?

laitman_527_07Question: Why was it necessary to conceal the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: It was only so that humanity would not be confused. In our time, if people read a book of Kabbalah, they will not understand anything in it because in order to understand it, a person must ascend to a higher level and begin using the forces that operate there. Therefore, the Kabbalists hid their books.

There is no reason to reveal what nature itself hides. For example, nature revealed its nuclear energy 2,000 years ago, but it was only in the last century that people began to use it. Imagine what would have happened if that had occurred earlier!

Question: To balance the egoism, one needs to attain the positive force in nature. How does one discover it?

Answer: It is only if he acts according to the integral system: working in a group, nullifying himself toward the friends correctly, and studying the wisdom of Kabbalah together with them. In that way, he awakens and invites upon himself the influence of that positive force concealed in nature.

In our world, everything is based upon mutual cooperation between plus (the positive force) and minus (the negative force), but the plus level of human nature is concealed; we must get it from nature. To do this, a person must long to attain the positive force.

This is possible only if a person maintains all the conditions that I indicated earlier. Then he arouses the revelation of the positive force on himself. Through balancing it with the negative force, he builds himself.

How Many Years Are Left For Humanity?

laitman_742_03Question: How would you explain your claim that humanity has 223 years left to exist?

Answer: 5,777 years ago, there was a human being called Adam. He discovered that a method exists through which it is possible to attain the upper world.

We consider the day he made this discovery as his birthday. We celebrate it as Rosh Hashanah. Adam wrote about his discovery in a book called Raziel HaMalach. From that date we begin the numbering of the traditional calendar, from 5,777 years ago.

Therefore, around 200 years remain until all of humanity will attain the upper world, like Adam HaRishon (The First Man), which means we will feel our true state if we just go beyond the limitations of our ego.

Baal HaSulam explained this beautifully in his metaphor of “the worm and the radish.”

whatdidthecreatorcreatepeoplefor

When the worm sticks his head outside of the radish and looks at the world, he sees the sun shining and birds chirping. It is amazed at how it was living in such a terrible world all the time while there was a higher world that is so wonderful.

So we also need “to go out of our radish.” Just as the bitterness of the radish stimulated the worm to crawl out of the radish, so suffering pushes us out of our world.

There is nothing interesting in our world, and true fulfillment is attained only with the help of the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah. Today all of humanity is gradually beginning to feel that our world is a “bitter radish,” so they are beginning to approach the wisdom of Kabbalah.

New Life #803 – The Illusion Of Liberalism

New Life #803 – The Illusion Of Liberalism
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

“Liberalism” and “democracy” are nice words, but in practice, they don’t really exist. The elites have always been “siphoning” everything for themselves while the lower classes starve. The time has come for us to sober up!

In other forms of government, the truth was at least clear and the illusion of equality wasn’t sold to the people. We cannot call our development progress because people today are much more cruel. Today there are many unemployed. This trend will only increase due to technology. Society stands at the crossroads.

A person will seemingly be free, yet he will not actually have anything to feed his family. Even a fascistic approach, which is intensifying in the world today, will not bring a solution. We are modern slaves, told by the media that we are free.

The connection between the individual and society needs to be corrected, like in a family with warm, secure, mutual, loving connection. In Russia they tried to build communism by force, through oppression. Society and those who stand at its head must particularly be concerned about this, ministers and government officials today are concerned only about themselves.

Society must relate to the individual like a child in the family and must take care of his needs to benefit him. A society that is conducted like a family will be able to be built through an education for connection; the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches how to do this. There is a special force in the wisdom of Kabbalah that can change a person’s egoistic nature. If we don’t learn the method for correcting human nature from the wisdom of Kabbalah, fascism and world war are in our future.
