Ascent In Three Lines

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: You say that the task is to ascend above our egoism, as if on a “wave,” while, at the same time, not removing it. Does this mean that the greater the egoism, the greater the power of altruism? Can one not exist without the other? Because the more I receive, the more I can give. Is this the way to ascend to the peak of altruism and bestowal to the Creator?

Answer: Right, the ascent is achieved through three lines: the negative left line, the positive right line, and the perfect middle line. The Creator develops the left line in us, according to what He said: I created the evil inclination (the left line). But I gave you the Torah, (the correcting upper Light), which you attract by way of the group—the right line. It is so that you will correct and transform the evil into good, in the middle line.

Universal Computer

laitman_282_01Question: Does the Creator view each of us as one cell of billions of cells in a gigantic body? Is that how He feels everyone?

Answer: Yes, but each cell is personal and unique,; therefore, a calculation is made with each one of them.

Question: What kind of a brain must the Creator have to follow everyone?!

Answer: This is not a brain, but a very simple system. Nothing changes in it.

During his time, there was a situation that perplexed and confused Lenin. To manage the nation according to the socialist principles and simultaneously maintain a financial balance, it would have been necessary to have more accountants than the entire population of Russia. It follows that if he were to employ the entire population of the nation in this, they still would not succeed in their calculations.

While today, with the help of computers, we are approaching a situation in which we are able to take everything in the world into account without the participation of people and there would also be no problems.

For example, the next generation needs to get only what it requires for existence on the level of the beastly body and everything else will be directed only toward involvement with spiritual development. So a calculation must be made regarding all of humanity so that each one will receive what he needs for a normal material existence in life. To do this, a single computer is enough, which will be managed by a robot.

What this means is that technology will advance toward a state where this will be realized, and this was impossible a hundred years ago.

Question: Does this mean that the Creator is a kind of computer?

Answer: This is the general system of nature. Once it worked with absolute connected and mutual precision, with total harmony between all its parts. Then all of the connections were broken. Today we must bring them back to the starting position, but with one small but significant addition, the logical and intelligent participation of all its existing parts, to the degree that they are ready to enter a reciprocal connection again.

Why Thoughts “Run Around” and Disappear

laitman_543_01Question: What do we need thoughts that we sometimes cannot even remember? They “run around” in the head and cannot be grasped or stopped.

Answer: These thoughts run around in our head all the time and carry out very great work. There is no need to concentrate on them or stop and work with them; it is only necessary to constantly follow our special goal.

The stormy and foggy states that appear and pass through us don’t need to disturb us. They gather within us gradually, and this is imperative for spiritual development.

The Creator Is Not Restful

laitman_571_06Question: Why are Kabbalists impatient? After all, the Creator’s attribute is restfulness and great patience.

Answer: The Creator’s attribute is absolute impatience and restlessness. The fact is the Creator wants only one thing: to reach the goal of creation, and regarding this, it is said that He is in a state of absolute rest.

This means that it is done in an infinite linear movement at infinite speed.

The Articles Of Rabash

laitman_527_07Rabash is a special soul. In his articles, he revealed the entire methodology of entering the upper world to humanity.

I remember what I said to him about this. This was in the beginning of my studies. He asked me what I thought about his articles, and because I felt them deeply, my reply was: “You are doing something entirely new, something the world has not seen before.”

Rabash understood the essence of this huge undertaking—the relationships in the group, which is also evident from his side notes that were published in the third volume of his works. They were written before I found Rabash, and briefly introduced the articles that he later wrote after I brought students to him and he began to present everything in a systematic way.

When reading his notes, which essentially he wrote for himself, I feel him more.

Baal HaSulam is different. He is too high above. Even when he writes for himself, or pours his heart out to his students, his words come from such heights, as if you are standing under the sky. His love is ironclad. And Rabash is much more accessible, his heart is very tender.

Tears Are A Surplus Of Emotion

Answer: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, a surplus of emotion produces tears. Moreover, only positive emotions arouse tears within me; I don’t cry with negative emotions.

Why Conceal Internal States?

Laitman_049_01Question: Why should a Kabbalist conceal his internal states and literally live a double life?

Answer: I would gladly reveal my states, but they are simply on a level that does not enable me to reveal them to anyone. After all, we don’t reveal our feelings to a two-year-old. It is only when he grows up that we can share
our feelings with him.
