What Does The Wisdom Of Kabbalah Study?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What does Kabbalah say about the mystery of dark energy and dark matter?

Answer: Kabbalah does not deal with the phenomena of our world and doesn’t say anything about them. One can draw some parallels between the upper world and ours, but these comparisons are relative and do not directly relate to each other.

Question: What does Kabbalah study? Can we say that it studies man’s consciousness and the connection between consciousnesses?

Answer: No. Kabbalah studies two properties of the desire: the property of bestowal and the property of reception. Both desires are at the core of our nature. The correspondence between these properties—which of them prevails, to what extent, and so on—constitutes all parts and all levels of creation.

Question: What does it mean “Kabbalah does not study our world”?

Answer: Sciences of our world do that. And the wisdom of Kabbalah studies the next, so-called higher level. But to do this you have to be at the level at which you want to study it.

To See A Worthy Husband

laitman_543_02Question: How can a woman rise to such a spiritual degree that will let her see a worthy husband in every bachelor?

Answer: You don’t have to be on a high spiritual degree for this. On the contrary, lower your nose to the material world and everything will be all right. You will immediately see worthy men around you.

Don’t assume airs, it’s not good. You will lose.

North Korea’s Nuclear Power

Laitman_200_02Comment: North Korea continues to increase its nuclear power. Around it, like sharks, American cruisers begin to move. South Korea is concerned about the events there. The entire world gradually starts to tremble, believing that a real nuclear war could be started there.

My Response: It is quite possible. The fact is that the young man that is now in power in North Korea never was at war and didn’t serve in the army, yet he is a commander-in-chief. So what can be done?

Comment: Nevertheless, they managed to stay independent and still remain in their communist miracle.

My Response: On the one hand, they lead a meager life, but on the other hand, they have a certain internal fulfillment in comparison to the rest of today’s world.

Comment: In principle, North Korea is characterized by purely communistic aspiration to equality, to the fact that everyone is working.

My Response: Such equality connects people, gives them inner fulfillment. If the next regime doesn’t supply this, then, of course, they won’t have this fulfillment. Freedom devastates a person.

It would be good to add Kabbalistic principles to what they are trying to build. The Kabbalistic principle is an equal distribution of the gross domestic product and practically no army, meaning just enough to protect the country, but not to be aggressive. Then, ten percent of the funds they spend on the army will be enough for them and they could become a beautiful developing country.

The fact is that the North Korean leader needs to remain in power, and so he acts this way.

“And They Shall Fine Him One Hundred Shekels of Silver”

laitman_592_01Torah, Deuteronomy 22:19: And they shall fine him one hundred [shekels of] silver because he defamed a virgin of Israel, and he give it to the girl’s father. And she shall be his wife; he shall not send her away all the days of his life.

A person wants “to marry,” wants to develop his desire, to see its offspring, all kinds of various fulfillments and pleasures. And suddenly he understands that he cannot do anything. He can’t follow this path and overcome this desire. It is not his and it is completely alien to him.

He wants to enjoy life, and this desire calls him to something else, indicates that he must move toward the Creator, renounce his pleasures and plans. He doesn’t want such a desire, such a wife. Yet, he must correct exactly this desire that manifested in him in such an egoistic way. Later he’ll have to return to it and correct it.

However, now he ascends and enters into contact with the next level, although he paid a hundred silver shekels for it, meaning, he received a decent punishment in front of everyone, such as shame, various fears, and hatred.

Thus, he connected to the next higher level, and without this renunciation, he wouldn’t be able to just take his desire and start correcting it. It is the escape from correction that is a necessary condition before he can take care of it and correct it.

There is nowhere to run! Therefore, we see how humanity is slowly being pushed into difficult conditions, and we from our side develop our method more and more, make it closer to humanity, disseminate, and will certainly meet with them somewhere. This is the law of our development.

New Life #661 – Stability Versus Revolution
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

We are living in a world of opposites: Liberals versus conservatives, innovation versus stability. If we don’t know what to do, it is better not to do anything.
