Israel Is 70 Years Old. This Is Going To Be A Special Congress!

In the past 20 years we have had hundreds of congresses and each was unique. But this one is going to be very special. It is dedicated to honor the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel.

Israel is not just a country. It is a nation of people. It is one heart in which there is place for everyone.

Our congress is for everyone. Everything in it is about unity. When hatred toward Israel is growing, people from all over the entire world are coming here. And they are coming here to support us.

Here the unity of the nation of Israel is forged.

Come and experience it!

My Thoughts On Twitter, 2/19/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Psalm_90 O LORD, You were our temple from generation to generation. You created the universe, from eon to eon You are GOD! You bring man to pieces & say “Return to Me, sons of men!” Pity your servants! Let the favor of the LORD our GOD be upon us. Confirm the work of our hands.

Psalm_89 I will sing His kindness forever. Fairness & law – His foundation, mercy and truth before You. Blessed is the people knowing how to trump. In the light of Your face they walk. How long will You stay hidden? Where are Your former mercies, O LORD? Blessed the LORD forever.

#Psalm_88 Day & night I cry to You. My soul is sick with misfortunes, life reached the pit. I’m among descending to the grave. You removed my friends. Why do You reject my soul, hide Your face? Your terrors surround me. You removed my friends from me, my acquaintances – darkness.

How To Rise Above Time

laitman_744Question: How can I rise above time?

Answer: In order to rise above time, you need to tell yourself that you do not have a next moment—everything is in this instant. You should live this way; there is only one instant. In each moment, you do not transfer yourself into the next one, but at this instant, you start and finish as if life is really ending.

Then you suddenly feel that this same moment begins to expand and there are an enormous amount of actions, thoughts, and deeds in it, but time disappears.

After all, time does not exist; it is our subjective feeling.

Question: What, then, is the future?

Answer: The future is completely unrelated to time. The future is what happens after the action I now perform. It is a different dimension in which the axis of time is nonexistent. After all, the axis of time assumes that regardless of whether or not I exist, whether or not I do something, time passes independently of me.

The wisdom of Kabbalah, however, says that this is not the case. It states that you must give up such an attitude to life and decide that only you create your own states. If you do not create them, then time does not move, nothing passes by itself from one moment to the next. If you did something in this instant, it is then called “a moment,” and each subsequent moment carries out in this manner.

We live in the world which, according to Kabbalah, is considered illusory and imaginary. The main lie we live in is that we exist in time.

Therefore, Einstein indeed made a revolution by declaring time a subjective concept, with nothing absolute about it that would happen with or without a person.

Time is a person’s inner sensation. If we rise above our egoism, then there is no time.

For Those Who Pray

232.1Question from Facebook: According to you there is no God. If God doesn’t exist, to whom and for what do people pray?

Answer: A god that we can imagine and depict to ourselves does not exist. God is the force of bestowal and love that exists around us, but we don’t feel. We need to discover it within us to the degree that we become equal with its characteristics, then God will exist for us.

Question: What is prayer for you?

Answer: Prayer is a request to the Creator that He correct you and make you similar to Himself, i.e., bestowing and loving.

Why Are There So Many People?

laitman_423.03Question from Facebook: Why does the Creator need so many people on planet Earth?

Answer: The number of people on the planet, including those who have died and those who are yet to be born, is strictly predetermined because it depends on the volume of the egoistic desire we must correct. And each of us: living, dead, or yet to be born, carries that desire.

Following this process, we are nearing the end of correction. The desires are becoming greater and that is why they need to be divided into a larger number of bodies. That is why the population increases.

Question: Does it mean that if there were fewer bodies, they would not have been able to bare the egoistic pressure?

Answer: Of course. It is all strictly regulated.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 215

281.01Question: I am writing about changing the name of your organization. I live in Russia and people relate negatively to the word “Kabbalah.” No explanations relying on the Hebrew language help me….

Answer: Unfortunately, I have no right to change the name of the method for revelation of the Creator.

Question: What is sound? Why is any manifestation of sound (even of an inner voice) connected to the alphabet (letters)?

Answer: It is because this is a means for communication, connection.

New Life #213 – Turning Relationship Education Into A National Mission

New Life #213 – Turning Relationship Education Into A National Mission
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi

Summary

The distance between people is the root of all kinds of crises in life including depression and many other health problems. Without connection to others, we feel abandoned like orphans. Correcting the morbidity of modern society should begin with the couple and family units. People need a supportive and warm environment in which they can continue to develop throughout all stages of the lifecycle. People no longer want to marry, but they must be in long-term, committed relationships in order to raise their children properly. We need to create a social-educational process that teaches people how to love and build mutual support as a national mission.
