My Thoughts On Twitter 7/4/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

I cannot reveal my flaws in me. My ego extinguishes the merits of others, and assures me that I am perfect. But when I work with the group, I amplify our bond by 620 times, and it can accommodate inside it the entire ocean of the upper light.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

Besides man, there’s only the Creator.
My task is to collect all the desires and combine them into one desire.
9 friends are my qualities, projected outside of me.
With this form, I see my qualities prominently: insolence, thievery, disdain, and so on.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

The ten exists within me. I must build up this notion inside me in such a way that I could work with it as if with my own desire. After all, this desire really does belong to me, and the faces only appear to aim me correctly at the Creator.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

If we don’t relate to the friends with love and faith above reason, we will never give the Creator the chance to clothe in us, for us to reveal Him and adhere to Him. This is the only way to practically actualize the principle of “From love of creatures to love of the Creator.”

#UBI degrades people and leads to consumption, resulting in the bankers gaining power. When prices for services rise, the rich get richer. CONCLUSION: the idea of UBI is Kabbalistic, but NOT religious. UBI is only good if the population is educated, otherwise it will ruin society!

I must convince myself that they are parts of my soul!
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

“The group is not the ten, but me before myself.
I must swallow them, for they are me.
It’s the ego who draws their faces.
I must remove the distance between us.
For they are more important than me. I am Malchut, and they are my 9 Sefirot.

If we have thoughts that don’t belong to unity—we exile them beyond the “wall.” Inside we clear up space from disturbances. We build the Temple—unity in bestowal and love.
In it, in our common heart, the Creator is revealed to the extent we are similar to Him.
#Spiritualwork

By expressing love of friends, I neutralize a friend’s ego. He stops thinking of himself, feeling joy and confidence. I cancel his problems with my love.
After all, when the friends are the most precious thing in my life, the Creator clothes within me and influences them.

The temple must be for the whole world. That’s why people of the world came to it. If not, it wouldn’t have stood an hour. And although nations resist Israel they didn’t resist the Temple. So it wasn’t they who destroyed it but mutual hate in the people of Israel
Maharal Hidushey

All the worst states are also from the Creator—so one will ask for help. Self-love, egoism created by the Creator, separate him from spirituality, as if there is no hope to overcome them. But it is also in one’s power to entreat the Creator and overcome the obstacles He created.

Educate them to raise the spirit of unity above all differences, across all 50 states, and between all colors — especially between red and blue.
#IndependenceDay

Teach them that a hostile social atmosphere enslaves them to their selfish urges and blocks their entrance to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Remind them, as their loving mother, that siblings can fight, disagree and even maintain their differences, but the American family’s wellbeing must remain above their feuds. #USA #USAIndependenceDay Full video:

Dearest #America, the land of unlimited possibilities, 31% of your citizens are concerned about the possibility of civil war in the next few years. The time has come to help them make up and come together, before it becomes impossible for them to hear you. #IndependanceDay

#IndependenceDay means independence from #ego, from inner evil nature. The world undergoes the waves of selfish development. It exponentially ascends and must figure out what to do with its own egoism, to define the world egoism as its primary, global, and internal enemy.

We must agree with the fact that all the lowly, earthly thoughts and desires that distract us from the Creator, also come from the Creator – in order for us to accept them as coming from the Creator and respond to them with a plea for redemption.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

Get used to your heart always being in the desires of this world, and from inside it, you demand the Creator.
Even though the desires of this world rule, you don’t retreat in your aspiration to the Creator—and you ask Him for help to overcome His very obstacles.
#Spiritualwork

When one feels that he is finished, unworthy, hopeless—he must remember that this state also comes from the Creator, and it’s for his own good, so he’ll turn this lower state into an upper one by changing his attitude to it.

Dear America, on your 242nd birthday, may your children see that their true independence will only come from working on their unity.

Get used to your heart always being in the desires of this world, and from inside it, you demand the Creator.
Even though the desires of this world rule, you don’t retreat in your aspiration to the Creator—and you ask Him for help to overcome His very obstacles.

A person cannot ask for himself. The right request to the Creator in which man remains in similarity and connection with Him is a plea for the friend. Due to the breaking of the common soul, all people deliberately appear to be strangers to us so we can build the quality of bestowal

Newsmax: “July 4th Reminds: Independence Only Grows Rooted in Unity”

The largest portal Newsmax published my new article “July 4th Reminds: Independence Only Grows Rooted in Unity

today you celebrate your 242nd birthday. You grew from various groups of settlers and separated colonies into the 50 united—and independent—states of America.

Freedom is the product you always promoted in the global arena, the brand ideal you presented to humanity, the dream you inspired in all of us.

Regrettably, the freedom you offered was exploited and turned into a weapon in the hands of your own children. As they raced toward unlimited freedom for themselves, they grew dangerously hostile and hateful toward each other.

Today, they choose a side—left or right—and wage an increasingly escalating war against each other in the name of freedom.

America, your children have mostly split into two camps of rebellious youths.

They forged an uncompromising worldview and can no longer see each other’s point of view. They learned how to fortify their position with endless arguments claiming proof and with self-justification.

They raised accusations of guilt, slander, and now violence, against the other.

Dearest America, the land of unlimited possibilities, 31 percent of your citizens are concerned about the possibility of civil war in the next few years. The time has come to help them make up and come together, before it becomes impossible for them to hear you.

Remind them, as their loving mother, that siblings can fight, disagree, and even maintain their differences, but the American family’s well-being must remain above their feuds.

Teach them that a hostile social atmosphere enslaves them to their selfish urges and blocks their entrance to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Educate them to raise the spirit of unity above all differences, across all 50 states, and between all colors—especially between red and blue.

Set healthy boundaries to preserve the integrity of your nation, one people above all differences. Let your children know they have crossed a line when any of them incites violence and extremity against their fellow citizens.

But most of all, America, show your children the unique opportunity their raging eyes are too blind to see. Show them how strong and prosperous they can be if they work to be together! This is all they are missing.

Help them envision life beyond fighting and biting. Help them change the rules of the game, using each other’s strengths to build something new and common. This is the natural, motherly wisdom you must bestow upon your children.

Surely, the notion of unity sounds folksy, naïve and far-fetched to your children, yet it is the root from which they emerged, and the mature state that awaits them.

Help them with all the means you have at your disposal, America.

  • Turn away from partisan media that profits off division and establish an impartial and objective communication channel with representatives from the entire social spectrum who are willing to demonstrate unity above differences.
  • Start a research facility to draw an objective picture of the national state of the American family.
    Invest resources and quality manpower in new social initiatives with the goal of unifying communities in every part of society.
  • Deep down, all your children realize that hatred and division are unsustainable, but they can’t stop: they need you to nurture their commonalities and similarities over their differences.

Dear America, on your 242nd birthday, may your children see that their true independence will only come from working on their unity.

Happy Independence Day America (2018)

Awakening The Dawn Together

laitman_269We intentionally take ourselves out of balance so that we can feel how much we need the Creator. It is written, “Israel hastens time.” That’s why we cannot sit and wait for something to happen by itself. We must act ourselves.

If the same state keeps repeating over and over, it is called death. I must try to change it. It is in my power to change day and night. All of this is only to create a need for the Creator. We want to forcefully place ourselves into states where we will not be able to cope without the help of the Creator.

This is not about bringing suffering upon ourselves. These are not bad states. Evil is that which comes without our prior preparation, that which comes from the path of suffering. But I go by the path of hastening the Light—Achishena—and awaken myself: “I awaken the dawn.” I, myself, want to feel the darkness and the dusk because I develop a taste for them. And without this, I have no flavor, like tasteless food without salt and pepper.

This is a positive state, not a negative one, where it feels like the ground under your feet is disappearing, fear grips you, your head is cloudy, and all foundation is gone. Along with this, somewhere in a far distant corner of the mind, I understand that this comes only in order to advance me, and that is why I rejoice. This is not the path of suffering— together we awaken the dawn. We need to clear the space that the Creator will fill. And in the next moment, fear again engulfs me.

If fear of the future awakens within me and, along with it, I understand that all of this is done by the Creator to bring me closer to Him, and I hold on to Him, then I justify my state and my fear for however short an instant. The main thing is that I achieved adhesion with the Creator, and I see that the point of everything that occurred was in Him.

I again quickly lose the connection with the Creator, and again I am a newborn who lost his mother, who glances around and doesn’t see her anywhere. This is an egoistic approach, but it is already the right demand for the Creator.1

Is Dialogue With The Upper Worlds Possible?

laitman_551Question: You say that there is nothing other than the person. Reality is in the person and everything happens within him. He does not see anything in this world except for himself. Everything that happens around me is me, pictures inside of me.

In what form does the dialogue exist between the external worlds, including the upper worlds, and humanity?

Answer: Humanity is an egoistic mass that desires at each moment of time to receive selfish fulfillment.

Through the method of two opposing influences, give and take, the upper Light gradually develops humanity in different sensations and directions in order to give it the greatest possibility of perceiving the Creator. For now, humanity is in such overturns.

Question: Is this called a dialogue with the Creator?

Answer: There is no question of any dialogue here. When you work on a desire, you automatically know its result.

The higher force has no secrets. It is known in advance: If I act this way, I will get this as a result; if I act in another way, I will get a different result. Thus, humanity had to be carried through millions of years of development so that it finally realized: “Why are we being stimulated?”—In order to lead to a certain reaction.

Question: To what extent does a person’s and humanity’s past affect the dialogue between us and the upper worlds?

Answer: It all overlaps. Therefore, we do not need to know the past: not paleontology, nor history, etc. We need to know at each moment of time how we can define the Creator through the group.

“To Kill The Egyptian” In You

laitman_740.02Question: Why did Moses kill the Egyptian? What does it mean?

Answer: Moses killed the Egyptian in himself. We discuss what happens in one person. Who are Pharaoh, Moses, and all the positive and negative characters in the Torah, including the Creator? I do not know who they are and what this really is.

I know that this is revealed inside of me—even my special internal property called “the Creator”—because it is not outside at all.

Therefore, it is written that the Torah is studied in one body, inside a person, and there is nothing else. That is why “he killed the Egyptian” means that Moses reached a state in which he conquered his evil inclination, and from that moment he began to resist Pharaoh. Pharaoh thus sent his forces in search of Moses to kill him.

“The Egyptian” is Pharaoh’s private force. Therefore, when Moses killed the Egyptian in himself, that is, this desire ceased to work for the sake of receiving, he corrected it with the intention to bestow, and then Moses became Pharaoh’s enemy. A person then feels how his common egoism opposes his path and doesn’t let him advance. Therefore, he does not know what to do and he has only one solution—to run away. And then Moses escapes to Jethro.
