My Thoughts On Twitter, 1/3/18

“Holiday” is a luminescence of the upper world. The Hebrew for holiday – Hag – stems from the word “arrow” (Mahog) and “circle” (Hug). Unlike our world, the spiritual is devoid of time-space-motion, has only descents & ascents in love & bestowal. The Upper Light determines dates

Chafetz Chaim: Creation is loved by the Creator when ppl r united without envy or enmity, each wants good 4 others. Then the Creator is pleased with his actions. Thus “Love your neighbor, I am the Creator” is actualized. If you love another as yourself the Creator is in you both

Dear friends. I wish you all a Happy New Year, to reveal the Creator in our common unity, for everyone to attain the meaning of life in health and in peace.

Vilna Gaon: You begin studying #Torah from its secret part, SOD, Torah of the world of Assiya where the Creator is fully concealed. Then you study the revealed Torah, REMEZ (world of Yetzira) etc. until Torah of the world Atzilut, PSHAT, for it is free of Creator’s concealment.

A Kabbalist’s joy is the chance to fill others & through them, the Creator. I cannot bestow to/receive from Him directly. Joy is when you give yourself to the group & in it discover the connection to Creator. Together, you-group-Creator meet in the group (Shechinah). #kabbalah

#Israel is founding an organization to clarify Israel’s actions. It’s an old, naive notion. Kabbalah says that hatred toward Jews is natural, and will only change when the Jews show an example of unity for the world to follow. This is their historic mission.

Wishes For My Students For The New Year

laitman_539Before us is a wonderful year—a year of further human awakening. I ask you to prepare yourselves to be its teachers. It depends on you.

You will look ahead, you will learn how to approach people correctly, how to properly explain to them what nature is leading us to, what we must do take advantage of this moment, this situation correctly, to rise to the next higher and eternal level of nature.

By leaving the framework of material life, we will begin to feel an eternal and perfect life and exist on a spiritual plane where our lives are no longer evaluated according to the state our body feels.

We must reach this state and explain to all people that the wisdom of Kabbalah is leading us to this state. Let us reach this state together. We do not need to change anything or limit ourselves in any way. We need only one thing—to establish the right connections between us and then within them, precisely in the spaces between us, we will begin to discover the higher state.

I wish you health and tremendous mutual love between you so that we will spread our warmth throughout the world, and the whole world will come together around us, and all of us will rise together, like on a magic carpet, to the next level.

A Kabbalist Is A Regular Person

laitman_961Question: Do Kabbalists ever have nervous breakdowns or emotional overload? How do they cope with them?

Answer: Frankly, a Kabbalist is a regular person who divides his existence into two parts: the animate and the spiritual.

In the animate part of him, a Kabbalist has to do whatever is necessary for his body. Give it food, sex, family, knowledge, power, envy, jealousy—meaning, everything the body needs to function normally in order to advance into the upper world.

A Kabbalist must not only satisfy his animate desires (food, sex, and family), but also must study other sciences and take care of himself financially so he does not become a burden on society. In everyday life, he is the most ordinary person that can be. Kabbalists are not simple individuals.

The only thing you can tell by looking at them is that their whole lives are devoted only to carrying out their spiritual obligations.

Don’t Disconnect From The Creator

laitman_276.01Question: How does a Kabbalist analyze what has been swept through him?

Answer: The Kabbalist should justify everything that happened to him during the years of life. All of this has been done by the Creator, there is none else besides Him, and He is only good who does good.

From this moment onward, he must try to be connected with the Creator in all of his actions, and in whatever happens to him—the best, the worst, no matter what—he still does not part from the Creator.

Disconnecting from the Creator is the greatest punishment of man in the world!
