How Does One Respond To Something False?

laitman_559Question: How does one react to an insolent and cynical lie to which you feel completely powerless? How do you behave in situations like this?

Answer: First of all, I try not to deal with a person from whom I have heard something false any more.

If we are in particular business relationships in our world, it is preferable to stay away from those people. Likewise, I don’t need to feel hatred or hostility toward that person or try to take revenge on him.

I deal with the Creator because He is the one who arranged this situation for me through that person. Therefore, all of my actions are directed only toward arranging a relationship with the Creator so that He will not send me “gifts” like this anymore.

Question: Why should I not continue my relationship with this person? After all, the Creator is telling me about these things through him and I work with them.

Answer: No. If this is done through a person like this, then it means that according to his nature, according to his role in the world, that is what he is like.

Question: Does this mean that it is not a Mitzva (commandment) to suffer?

Answer: You should not suffer! You should immediately try to clarify how the Creator is relating to you at every moment and attribute everything to Him only.

Question: So, does that mean that in our world we should act as is customary, according to the laws of our world? If someone lies to me and this is harmful to my business, for example, should I go to a lawyer, file a complaint in court, etc.?

Answer: Certainly. On the inner level, you understand that this is the Creator and that is where you work. But in the outside world you act according to what is customary here. What this means is that on the level of our world you are also trying to correct these mutual relationships. So, you go to a lawyer.

Question: By taking someone to court who insolently lied to me and caused me harm, am I correcting him?

Answer: In one of Baal HaSulam’s letter it is said that the Creator provided all the laws for our world so that with their help we would approach the higher characteristics. And what we cannot correct internally, we perfect in our world through external actions like these.

The Concept Of True Freedom

laitman_939.02Question: The wisdom of Kabbalah gives an understanding that there is no freedom at all in our egoistic world. Freedom is the quality of bestowal and love that I must acquire. But it seems that by taking this obligation upon myself I become unfree according to our earthy perception. Are you saying that this acquisition is freedom?

Answer: When I am responsible for others and I have an opportunity to bestow, to fulfill, to love, and to help them, then I am free. I am free in this expression of desires.

Freedom is the fulfillment of one’s desire. In our world, there cannot be the fulfillment of our desires because we do not chose them. Both the desires and their realization are imposed on us by the Creator.

Toward Harmony With Nature

laitman_448.4Question: What is your prediction regarding climate regulation? What awaits us? Is there something to strive for?

Answer: I see no special solution in the actions that climatologists propose. I do not think that human egoism, especially at the government level, in the modern world, with the current politics, will allow an opportunity to somehow negotiate and solve emerging problems. I do not believe in that at all.

On the contrary, we see that from year to year there is a stupefaction of governments. They are not able to understand and manage the processes that take place. Therefore, we see the emergence of growing problems.

As I see it, people will begin to realize that they have no other choice but to get closer to each other in making decisions. This will force those in power and governments to change their behavior, and maybe then countries and governments will get closer to each other. And most importantly, from all the problems and suffering, the awareness will emerge in people that unification is the only salvation.

But not just because it is good that we help each other, but because by uniting we connect to nature harmoniously. After all, each part of nature, except humans, is harmonious and completely interconnected. Only human society opposes nature with its egoism.

When we realize, from our internality, that this is the cause of all problems, this realization will lead us to harmony with nature. And everything will be balanced.

For that to happen, we must introduce the education of people as an integral part of the world. I consider this to be a necessity.

How Can We Protect Children From The Cruel World?

627.2Question: How do we protect children from the cruel world?

Answer: Only by providing them with the basics of Kabbalistic knowledge. There’s nothing else!

Believe me that any other knowledge and instruction have no power. Only if you familiarize a person with the wisdom of Kabbalah and they begin to understand why and for what purpose everything revolves in the world, what the world is going through, and how it comes to an end, only by this you provide them with the best life insurance.

In our community there are a lot of children who were born here and are now parents themselves. I’m happy to see the second generation born.

I remember the birth of the kids who are fathers now, and I see that all this is not in vain. Our children do not move away from us. It happens that they disconnect from us for some time, but they come back to our community nonetheless. They understand us and approve of us.

You will not see any other society in the world in which parents, children, and grandchildren would be so interconnected, and this happens because we have common goals, a common method, a common life, a common group, a common Creator, a community. Therefore, take my advice: Try to organize all this, and you will become unique anywhere in the world, a good example for all.

Question: Do you mean to say that there can be true friendship between fathers and sons?

Answer: I cannot say anything about true friendship, but the wisdom of Kabbalah connects people to each other. This occupation, which is common for a father and son, is above our world. Therefore, it is necessary to try all means possible to educate a child, and set an example.

Deceive Yourself

laitman_942Question: What should be done if someone in the group deliberately works against unity?

Answer: Within each person, there is an egoistic force that repels him from others, tricks him, and lowers the importance of connection.

We can say as much as we like: ”Yes, I must, I have to, I will do something,” but in reality do nothing. After all, I can’t force myself to open up to friends and begin to connect with them.

This means that we should try to create such alternative states so that the friends would obligate me to take action.

Thus, we should not only understand those people who have strong intolerance for the group, but also to a fight against egoism. Uniting with the group is the main problem. Here, egoism stands firmly on its positions.

Some people have a different problem. They can easily connect externally. It is easy for them to hug and sing. But they cannot overcome an inner barrier. Moreover, they don’t even feel that this barrier exists in them.

So, at every stage everyone has their own obstacles. What can you do? Try to deceive yourself.
