My Facebook Page: “Parents: Logan Paul Controversy Must Become Your Wake-up Call”

From My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 1/11/18

We essentially allowed Logan’s generation to pick up their examples, role models and values from a media culture that’s extremely saturated with violence, and now we are letting them be the role models for today’s kids.

My Thoughts On Twitter, 1/11/18

Jesse Bogner: wisdom from Dr. Michael @laitman. words to live by. sadly, most people aren’t smart enough to balance contradictory ideas and forces.

If Kabbalists simply tried to erase those disturbances as ordinary people do, they would remain in “faith below reason.” But they gain knowledge against the faith, and build the faith over the contradictions, over the desires of the body. That is why they can understand things that are beyond our conception.

In other words, the spiritual world opens before them, because they acquire the screen with “faith above reason.”

What Determines The Path Of The Souls?

760.4Question: If everything is planned in advance by the Creator, then what is considered a mistake on the spiritual path and in the study of Kabbalah?

Answer: A person still has freedom of choice, freedom of will. In any case, we will still come to our final point because this point was initially ordered for us, but not the path to it. By determining one’s path, a person simultaneously defines the paths of the other souls that depend on him since we exist in an integral system.

Therefore, to the extent that he behaves incorrectly, he negatively influences the fate of other people. Naturally, this returns back to him with many times heavier, negative additions.

Although on one hand everything is predetermined, on the other hand, everything depends on a person—every particular moment in time. If he were aware of this, he would not know what to do. Therefore, this is hidden from him.

Remark: Some movies show how a person suddenly begins to understand that his every action affects others and he immediately “freezes.”

My Comment: But even freezing would not help because to the extent that he freezes, he does not act and naturally this also influences everyone.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 199

laitman_547.03Question: Why doesn’t Bnei Baruch say anything about integral education anymore? In the past, they talked about this a lot; studied it, taught it to others, and now, not a word.

Answer: We study various states in the formation of a spiritual person, in one’s resemblance to the Creator. If something in particular interests you, then I suggest that you turn to our courses, both physical and virtual. You can find everything on the Internet.
