-If we don’t clearly sense the Creator, does the ego control us?
-The Creator controls us thru the #ego #MotivationalQuotes #qoutes

– Who controls whom, and how?
– The Creator controls man, and #man controls the Creator.

-Don’t you think the #ego cannot be defeated at this stage of human development?
– The ego needn’t be defeated, but partnered with. As the saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them. #Wisdom #life

Mike #Pence declared a messianic worldview the foundation for international relations, law & the planet’s future. Isaiah the prophet says “And the nations shall raise the sons of Israel on their shoulders and elevate them to the Creator’s mountain and all shall know the Creator”

Davos is a vanity fair! The ego, which is our nature, compels us to extract profit everywhere and from everything, up to demise of mankind. When Davos meets next years, the masses will fall even lower in quality of life, but there’ll be more billionaires! #WEF18 #Davos @business

Separation Is The Source Of All Problems

laitman_559If I try to solve my problems alone through my personal introspection and studies, then I only cause myself harm! In fact, all clarifications and breakages are associated with the fact that all desires were merged together, but became separated.

So we need to act only through our connection. There is no other solution other than our unity. Through unity, we can fix any situation.

Instead of personal scrutiny, we need to engage in our unification, and by doing that, we will solve all problems. If I try to correct my personal unpleasant inner sensation, I only worsen the condition. As it is said, one who asks for himself brings harm to all and to himself.

All states are the result of the revelation of information reminiscences (Reshimot) from the breakage, from the separation of our desires from each other. This gap is the cause of all problems. Now that you are shown where the separation is, you feel it as a problem.

So please correct it by starting to act toward unity. This requires praying for everyone else and connection in the ten with the help of the Light that reforms.

The problem needs to be corrected immediately by transferring it to our unification, which is called executing the commandment. I use disturbances for our connection in the group—meaning that through the group, I find the place of separation between us, and I draw strength, which will help me to achieve correction, connection.

The whole process is called the commandment—that is, the correction of one of the broken Reshimot (the informational record of the separation). This commandment must be fulfilled by correction with the help of the Light that reforms, the force that opens within our unity, in our efforts to unite.

Are We Worthy To Be The Crown Of Creation?

Laitman_709When we investigate nature, we are amazed at its wisdom, integrity, regularity, and infinite depth, which in every cell and atom reveals the interrelationship of all its levels—inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human—which communicate with each other in the universe’s distant corners.

Nature is so great and perfect that we cannot even comprehend it because we are only its small and insignificant work.

But why is it that man should be the crown of creation, the most complex and intelligent? Why, despite our highly developed mind, feelings, and possibilities, are we so bad, imperfect, and frivolous; why do we waste our lives and poison it for others and ourselves? There is some weird contradiction between our high potential and lowly deeds.

Why is man so bad that he enjoys when others feel bad? If we are the most developed beings, shouldn’t we be perfect, the most generous and noble? On the contrary, the more complex the creation, the worse it is.

How can an evil creation come out of a good Creator? It’s a contradiction, especially when we see how much wisdom there is in nature. And man also comes from the same source. Why is his great intelligence and strength accompanied by such evil, egoism, and desire to conquer and trample others? How can it mesh together?

A Win-Win Version Of Life

laitman_283.01Question: What can a person do if after 15 years of studying, he realizes that he was not striving for what Kabbalah teaches?

Answer: What can you do? People get a profession, they study and graduate from universities, and then it turns out that this is not what they wanted.

When a person studies Kabbalah, at least this is recorded in his “account” because he was engaged in the correction of the soul. If he had been studying any other science, theories, or philosophies, he would have received nothing from them. So by studying Kabbalah, he is in a win-win version of his life.

New Life #923 – Lack Of Motivation

New Life #923 – Lack Of Motivation
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

A lack of motivation stems from a lack of purpose in life. If a person has an exalted goal, he finds the motivation needed to organize the rest of his life in order to achieve it. Although the younger generation has a desire to attain the essence of life, their parents do not show them a good example of how to get there. They will need to learn the wisdom of Kabbalah, the method for self-realization and fulfillment of the soul.
