My Thoughts On Twitter, 2/6/18

By revealing to the nations the role of #Jews in the descent of the Upper Light to our world (Baal Hasulam, “Messiah’s Shofar“) we hope to awaken in them the desire to fulfill of their mission, as said by Isaiah the prophet.

All the increasing crises and the wars of Messiah, are generally happening to force the Jews unite and thereby attract the Upper Light that will change the world—from hatred and selfishness to bestowal and love. #Auschwitz

The power of thought is the greatest power in creation. We do not see how thoughts define everything that is happening. We need to learn to see the network of forces that pervades and governs the world. #Kabbalah describes how we manage the world with our own thoughts.

In Babylon and Egypt there was abundance but no answer to “What am I living for?” This question forced the Jews to exit Egypt and head for the Creator, who was the reason for it. To attain the meaning of life is to attain its source—the Creator. Today this question arises!

Introduction to The Book of Zohar: Liberation from the nations’ growing pressure depends on engaging in The #Zohar and the inner part of the Torah (Kabbalah). All destruction in the world and the fall of the people of Israel is because #Jews abandoned the inner part of the #Torah

The Polish Syndrome: The world won’t change at all regarding the “Jewish question” unless, of course, we change. Unless we give the world the essentials: love, concern-free life, and confidence in the future—the key to happiness. #Jewish

Henry Ford: Jews are obliged to fulfill the prophecy thru which the nations will receive the blessing. If #Israel realized that its world mission won’t be fulfilled thru the golden calf it’d become a factor in unification of mankind currently disturbed by the behavior of the Jews

February 20-22 I invite you to the Kabbalah Congress (#Israel). You will learn about the wisdom of #kabbalah and structure of our world, what guides our actions, how to penetrate the matter of our world and enter the system that governs it, and receive max benefit for us all.

-What does it mean to sense reality as undisturbed?
-When I come with the quality of bestowal, concerned with doing good to others, filling their desires, to give them what they want without self-interest, the Upper World accepts me without obstacles, and I integrate into it.

A World Of Bribes

laitman_220In the News (Front News): “The annual volume of bribes in the world is estimated at one trillion dollars. This was reported in the press service of the United Nations.

“’The annual volume of bribes in the world is estimated at one trillion dollars. At the same time, the world economy is losing another $2.6 trillion due to corruption. According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), in developing countries, corruption-related losses exceed the amount of official development assistance by 10 times,’ the report said.”

Question: What kind of a world are we living in?

Answer: We are living in an egoistic world that truly cannot get along in any other form.

If a person is managed by his egoism and doesn’t get any other education, he thinks only of how he can profit the most from any task, from any work. This is the natural wish of our egoism.

This is how we are arranged; it is our nature. How can a person limit himself and not take, not steal, not exploit his opportunities in the workplace? He must necessarily do this.

In principle, the efficiency of human society is almost zero. Absolutely everything is stolen!

Question: It turns out that almost every person in the world takes bribes?

Answer: Of course. Does he produce everything society demands of him? And if he shorts giving society even a little of his energy, even a little of his strength, knowledge, or something else, this is already theft. We cannot do anything against this without educating people.

Question: In what circumstance will a person not take bribes or steal?

Answer: In the event that he has a higher reward. He will begin giving everything to people to receive a connection with the Creator as a payoff.

If a person treats all people like he does himself, then in this relationship with others he will find a “secret door,” which is an exit to the Garden of Eden, to the spiritual world.

Everything there is managed according to other laws, according to the laws of bestowal and love. This is what we must attain. Today we are facing such an opportunity, and everything else we will reveal in this world is how unbearable it is. And so we will get closer to this possibility.

The Lord Is High But He Sees The Lowly

laitman_236.01Question: If we see around us and in others our own characteristics, how is it possible to understand the saying: “…the Lord is high but He sees the lowly” (Psalms 138:6)?

Answer: The Creator is truly great relative to the characteristic of bestowal, and only a person who feels lowly because he has discovered his own great egoism will feel the Creator.

Evaluating People According To Spiritual Characteristics

laitman_206Question: Why do the intellectuals of society, the leaders of the generation, feel the greatest hatred towards people?

Answer: It’s because they are also uncorrected egoists. Those who reach high levels in social, political, economic, and even scientific fields, are people with very great one-sided egoism. It is natural that they perceive everyone else as their potential competitors and suspect that someone will harm them.

It is impossible to complain about people who don’t learn the wisdom of Kabbalah, with the same demands that one would make to Kabbalists. Many times I have heard: “He is a great actor!” but in regard to his spiritual characteristics, he can be the worst and lowest person. We are mistaken if we immediately stick a label of perfection on him.

Spiritual qualities are in love for others, and everything connected with love for others.

New Life #933 – Parenting Above Egoism

New Life #933 – Parenting Above Egoism
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

Children are created as egoists naturally, but today’s generation is different from the previous generations; they need to learn how to defeat egoism so as not to destroy the world. Parents need to treat their children in the same way that the Creator relates to His creatures – with love above the ego. The correct attitude integrates mercy and justice. Parents need to provide a good example, showing their children how to give to others properly. Parents can attend small groups and learn about the wisdom of Kabbalah. It teaches us how to attract a positive force that can help us connect.
