My Thoughts On Twitter, 3/11/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

One who reads a holy book describing actions of bestowal, understands to the degree he rises above egoism, becoming similar to the upper world; he reads it as medicine from adversity, studies for knowledge, studies in a group- to be reformed by the upper light.

The Torah, the method of raising man to the level of the Creator, has 3 parts:
1 Weakening (Tushiya)
2 Correcting the ego (Tavlin)
3 Fulfilling—Light of Torah
1&2 -preparation for receiving Torah, correction of man’s nature
3 -Torah coming from the Creator

It says: The Creator’s face is in those who do #evil
Those wishing to follow the Creator’s path see that they always do evil, so they ask Him and do everything so He’ll help them leave evil, with His Light. “The Creator’s face is in those who do evil” in order to correct them!

#Evil is evil if that’s how one feels it
The size of evil depends on the hurdle of attaining good
If one values correction he feels evil in the hurdles of correction
Thus, one feels evil if he values spirituality
Evil begets hate for egoism—a hurdle against love for the Creator

#SpiritualWork_ML #Pesach
When one began studying, he enjoyed work in #egoism
Then a descent comes from above so one feels exile from #spirituality in egoism’s rule, &
asks for redemption.
If one can’t bestow, he suffers, wishing to give & love, and asks to be freed of egoism.

#SpiritualWork_ML
When exiting Egypt, they received intention to bestow, Light of Hassadim.
At the Red Sea, the Light of Hochma shone.
Receiving Torah below = “We will do and hear.”
The miracle is from above &Torah is from below, given to people at their request (not in the sky)

#Passover
The commandment of telling about the exodus from Egypt. To awaken the root of redemption from egoism and entrance into the spiritual world. All the following degrees come from this one. This degree awakens all upper degrees. Thus, it’s enough to eat Matza only on Pesach.

#Passover
Updates in man start with exit from Egypt, egoism’s/Pharaoh’s rule. Until then, he doesn’t understand what Torah talks about since he’s ruled by egoism and can’t be ruled by/understand the Creator. By coming out of Egypt, man can receive Torah & work for the Creator.

#Passover
The need for Torah, the tool to correct egoism, arises when one discovers he’s an egoist and egoism is evil! Until then, he doesn’t study Torah, the method of egoism’s correction, to attain “From love of man to love of the Creator,” but knowledge –Hochma BaGoyim Taamin.

#Pesach
Rabash said: #Matza Shmura (guarded) indicates that one must be guarded and detach from egoism when performing spiritual acts, acts of correcting egoism. If we don’t know how to guard ourselves from #egoism, we replace the main aspect of Torah with a secondary one…!

#SpiritualWork_ML #Pesach
Only redemption from exile makes the previous exile feel bitter.
Before redemption, one cannot tell how bitter exile is.
It’s because only Light gives the sensation/realization of #darkness. While there is no #Light, there is no attainment of darkness!

#SpiritualWork_ML #Pesach
#Pesach teaches us to feel the exile—from unity, and redemption is the opportunity to unite. #Separation reveals the sense of exile from unity, giving rise to a desire to be free from egoism’s/Pharaoh’s rule, to gain #freedom from egoism.

#SpiritualWork_ML
We experience ascent 620 times greater than descent.
One feels descent in his personal egoism.
During ascent, when we unite, we feel the common desire for mutual bestowal, the sum of efforts/pleas to the Creator. This amplifies the sensation of ascent 620-fold.

Screen And Social Responsibility

laitman_608.02Question: Kabbalah uses the term “screen” on the desire to receive. So a person always wants to receive something.

Is it possible to equate a concept of social responsibility or responsibility to society with the concept of a screen?

Answer: Yes. The screen is an absolutely clear anti-egoistic, anti-individualistic social orientation in a person’s actions and thoughts, i.e., actions for the sake of society in spite of egoism.

Equality In Spirituality

laitman_934Question: One of the important rules of the workshop is equality: “In the circle, there are no more or less important participants.” How is everybody equal?

Answer: Everybody is equal in relation to unity. The higher and the lower cannot unite. They must be on the same level.

In spirituality, connection is possible only according to the extent of similarity: you to me and I to you. One time—me to you, therefore I am higher and you are lower. Another time—you to me, therefore you are higher and I am lower. As a result, we are equal.

The Importance Of Social Connections

laitman_269Question: How can we educate people so they feel the importance of building social connections?

Answer: The Soviet regime attempted to educate people in this regard, but they failed. The people leading these efforts were egoists. They used the carrot and stick method in pursuit of their goals and thus, their attempts were coercive.

Education must be guided by people who correctly perceive the global system, who know how to guide people to connect, who can work on connection, see the integral nature, and understand that it is necessary to be in adhesion with it.

New Life #945 – The Meaning Of Life

New Life #945 – The Meaning Of Life
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

Neither science nor religion has an answer to the question “What is the meaning of life? The wisdom of Kabbalah is a metascience [a science of science] that reveals the answer to this question. Every person is given the opportunity to attain the highest power in nature, the power that created and manages him. There is no need to believe in the existence of this higher power since it can be explored and discovered in truth. In this way, he attains the meaning of life and eternity.
