Answers To Your Questions, Part 205

laitman_259.02Question: How would you advise a contemporary person to live without using others for his own well-being? Who provides a person with bread, clothes, etc.?

The study of Kabbalah will not fill a person and his family, capitalism will not disappear tomorrow morning, and the group will not earn a living for his family.

All these animal needs create and cultivate most of the egoism that continues in the group.

Answer: Kabbalah explains how to live in order to start feeling the upper world, the system governing our world. This is realized in the group to the extent it fulfills the conditions of the upper world in the relations between its members.

“Until You Have Increased And Can Occupy The Land”

laitman_749.01Torah, Exodus 23:28 – 23:30: And I will send the tzir’ah before you, and it will drive out the Hivvites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites from before you. I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field outnumber you. I will drive them out from before you little by little, until you have increased and can occupy the land.

There are countless qualities and desires in a person. Gradually correcting them, one must replace them with the qualities of the Creator: substituting the egoistic use for oneself with altruistic use, and the hatred for others with love.

It is written: “I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate.” The land is desire. How can we work with them? The fact is that we are arranged according to the four-step internal principle and therefore, we correct ourselves gradually from the lighter to the coarser egoistic layers.

This is an individual process typical for a person who wants to achieve the goal. Yet, for people who do not understand and do not realize their egoistic nature, such actions must be performed over them as over small children.

The Revelation Of Kabbalah From Generation To Generation

laitman_933Question: The Book of Creation (Sefer Yetzira) written by Abraham is a magnificent, poetic, and rigidly constructed work. It is a pleasure to read, but only occaisional thoughts are understandable. Is there a key to understand it?

Answer: For this one must study Kabbalah. For example, how is science different in every generation? It is by the fact that it develops and more and more and reveals the previously unknown. Therefore, Kabbalists in each generation, as in science, can reveal more and more.

The book of Abraham is written more smoothly than the book of Adam. Abraham, through his attainments, complemented what Adam had written and revealed Kabbalah more deeply. And all the others followed him.

Once the group of Abraham began the spiritual work, it started to attain the quality of bestowal in the connection between them, the upper quality, the Creator. If people restore good connections of mutual love, mutual responsibility, and mutual understanding between them, then to the extent that these connections are true, the Creator is revealed within them. This network of connections is called a vessel in which the upper force is revealed.

Abraham discovered the method of attaining the upper force in the connection between people. And Moses mastered this method in practice. People of his generation underwent tremendous egoistic descents that are called “the Egyptian exile.”

They plunged into a very great egoism, but at the same time, they were able to rise above it in their unification so that in the connection of two opposite tendencies, a great egoistic rejection and simultaneously a common aspiration to connection, separation and rapprochement, they created conditions in which the Creator was revealed. This was the achievement of Moses that he described in the Torah.

What Moses and his group did was a big leap forward compared to what Abraham achieved. Therefore, the generation of Moses completely rose above our world, revealed the Creator in the connection between them, and reached the highest state that has never been overcome until our time. To this day, Moses is the greatest spiritual leader of the people.

New Life #416 – Community Life: The Elderly
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

The elderly have much to offer society since we are all connected. They have an opportunity to learn without pressure and add their wisdom to the society at large by continuing to participate in giving and receiving. In fact, strenuous mental work is important in old age in order to maintain a sense of usefulness and a lively spirit. The mind can stay lucid for 120 years!
