The Outcomes Of The Convention Have Not Been Revealed Totally

laitman_214Question: What else do we lack in order to build the spiritual embryo after the series of powerful conventions we have been through and the work we have done to nullify ourselves?

Answer: We are not connected as an embryo yet, as well are not connected in order to form a womb in which the embryo can develop. We only need to connect; that’s all. We must connect as one body and be as one man in one heart. After all, you don’t want it yet. You are only studying.

Question: How can I want something that I don’t want all of the sudden?

Answer: We receive such a deficiency indirectly through the actions we perform. We cannot do anything against our ego directly, but indirectly we can spur the Light that Reforms that changes our nature.

Question: Can a small group in our bigger group connect and be as an embryo, or does everyone need to connect in order to achieve that?

Answer: At the moment, it is impossible to say for sure how it will happen because this situation has never been realized before. We must digest this principle thoroughly. We mustn’t be sure that something somehow would happen if it hasn’t yet been fulfilled.

There are infinite options in spirituality. Therefore, I don’t know what the internal group should be like in order to become an embryo that exists in the womb, the external group.

We are nearing this state gradually and very quickly. I am amazed each time by our sudden new leaps. However, there are no exceptions. We all must become an embryo according to our attitude to the desire to receive, and we all must become a womb in our attitude toward the desire to bestow. We build all of that of ourselves.

We must build the womb first, the level of bestowal, and raise it to the heavenly heights. Then, below it, we can build the level of receiving, which means the ground under our feet. There is always a right line first, bestowal, before the left line, receiving. This is what it says in the book Shulchan Aruch, which describes the commandments. This book gives us many practical instructions as to our internal work if we interpret them as spiritual concepts.

Question: What should we work on today?

Answer: We should work on the exaltedness of the attribute of bestowal and on building the connection between us in the form of an embryo. We must build the connection between us, which is the Creator, and the connection, which is the created being. Then, we will see that these are two sides of the same coin.

Question: But we cannot tie these two opposites together!

Answer: The Creator will arrange this oppositeness in the form of the middle line. Don’t worry. There isn’t much time left. We have made a great leap, and we will feel it soon. We don’t see the outcomes of the convention yet, but we will see it in the future, and we are advancing constantly toward it.

A Bill To Cancel Transactions

laitman_566_02Comment: A new bill was proposed to cancel financial transactions imposed on the weaker sectors of the population, over the phone or during a visit of a representative from different companies, that push pensioners, new immigrants, or disabled people to buying products they have no need for.

Previously it was possible to cancel transactions within two weeks of a purchase, now it is proposed to extend the period to four months.

Answer: Correct. It is essential. In addition, organize legal aid for these people to protect them from the various offers and unexpected visits they receive. Such occurrences are frequent! After all, we are talking about a lot of money.

It is worthwhile to add, because at present there is a transition to communicate through the Internet since people contact each other through the internet and prefer not to go to stores.

Comment: The whole matter is about lack of trust….

Answer: The whole matter is about the egoistic nature of man that wants to cheat others, to get rich at the expense of others, and it’s the only way to earn a lot of money.

Question: Why does it make us feel good?

Answer: A person doesn’t just get corporeal satisfaction from it but also moral satisfaction. He feels that he is higher, more successful, and smarter than the other, that he is special.

Further, he is strongly convinced that he did a good deed for the “poor guy,” by selling him something a little cheaper.  He even justifies himself.

There is nothing we can do; we live in this world. If we reveal this from the viewpoint of egoistic existence, then we are speaking about constantly “deceiving ” each other and a constant struggle at all levels: in the government, in organizations, and between them!

Everything is aimed at deceiving people, taking advantage of them. First I think how  I will profit in relation to the other, that the other person should lose, and that he will lose in such a way that the next time he will come to me anyway and will buy from me. This means that the next time I can deceive again. And that’s the way it is all the time.

Question: Will there be an end to this?

Answer: The end will come only after all the population goes through general education. It needs to be a political mission. We need to support education for the society, for the nation, and also for the United Nations. After all, it should be involved only in education!
