Connection Between The Two Worlds

laitman_623Question: There is a point in the heart with its world and there is egoism with its world. Is there a connection between them?

Answer: No. This is the serious isolation layer between our world and the upper world. Our world is a world of actions and it is governed from above. The upper world is the world that governs the universe. We have to study what may be the connections between these two worlds.

The point in the heart directs a person to reveal the upper governance. It has nothing to do with egoism. The point in the heart pulls us out and raises us above our egoism. It exists within egoism. It must be torn out from egoism, elevated above it, and brought to the connection with the upper world.

Blessing A Meal

Laitman_509Question: What is behind the blessing before and after a meal? Does it somehow help with digestion?

Answer: It does help. Since we exist within the same system and are tied through it to the source of our life, to the upper world, then the correct attitude toward food, toward the upper Light, toward all of humanity, toward our common Kli (vessel of the soul) brings us into sync with all the levels of this vast system.

Therefore, blessing means that I understand where I am, what I am doing, what action I am performing, what result I am hoping to achieve. A blessing before and after a meal, regardless of the words that I use or whom I address, allows me to correctly integrate myself into the general system, and thus to be able to get aligned with the right flow of the forces of nature. Later on you begin to feel it strongly.

Integration happens on different levels. In the end, we have to unite into one whole, into one desire, and reveal the upper Light inside it.

It turns out that one of the ways of uniting us with the inanimate, vegetative, and animal worlds is its use as food or for other purposes. Among other things, a blessing helps us integrate all the qualities of nature into ourselves, as if to raise it along with our spiritual work.

Question: Is consuming food an exchange of energy with nature?

Answer: Yes, it is an exchange of energy and information. Information plays a major role here. If you keep ingesting artificial products, it will not provide you with the same things as the regular food that comes from the ground: water, salt, vegetable, animal, or products of the earth.

Question: Why do we enjoy eating some protein and carbohydrates?

Answer: Such is our desire; it receives pleasure coming into contact with certain external objects. It can be food, family, sex, wealth, it doesn’t matter, just various kinds of pleasure. This is what happens when we include certain outside forces into ourselves.

Question: Can we say that this is the Light?

Answer: The Light is in everything. There is nothing else besides desire and Light. If we ask physicists, they would tell you that the meat you are eating consists of nothing. It is not meat but waves, energy.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 210

laitman_623Question: When I acquire the characteristic of bestowal, what will I bestow?

Answer: You will receive to bring pleasure to others and the Creator, and this will be your bestowal.

Question: Why is the desire the foundation of everything and not the thought?

Answer: Thought is generated from the desire and therefore it is secondary.

Question: As opposed to the world of good, stands the world of evil (emptiness/nonexistence). It turns out that now the main direction is not toward the Creator, but toward emptiness, the destruction of nature and the Creator?

Answer: No, the evil of the world is only so that we will recognize the evil of our nature and begin to ascend to the Creator.
