Outcome Of The Congress “Absorbed In The Upper One”

laitman_938.04Outcome of the congress: the conclusion that “There is none else besides the Creator.” We have to decide this every moment of our lives, being certain that He is good that does good, meaning, we justify Him in all His actions.

This is the very first condition with which the science of Kabbalah begins, with the article “There Is None Else Besides Him,” and all that is required of us on the path is to establish only this. The only things that change are the conditions, our inner and outer states. (In reality there is only one state, but we perceive its division into inner and outer states.)

In order to start living within the principle “There is none else besides Him, the good that does good,” one must work in a group of ten people. And this state starts from the stage of an “embryo” (Ubur) in which I annul myself in everything to the principle “There is none else besides Him, the good that does good”.

It means that I adhere to the upper one in any circumstance that He puts in front of me, completely annulling myself. In this way I become a spiritual embryo.

This is the state that we are trying to achieve, and this is why we spoke only about this during the congress: how to realize this state, what our relationships should be in the group, what each one owes the others, etc. It was all about how to reach the state “There is none else besides Him, the good that does good” on the level of an embryo.

Why did we take such a long time speaking about something that could be articulated in half a minute? The thing is that this state is realized not in a single person, but in the connections between many of us. While inside this connection, problems begin, because this is where we reveal our breakage.

All the work in establishing the principle “There is none else beside Him, the good that does good” is in tying the broken desires into it, so that it would be realized between us. It is between us, not in each one of us.

It is not enough to say that I adhered to the Creator, that I woke up in the morning with the thought of Him and accepted everything that happens as coming from Him. It is sufficient for now, but it is an abstract idea, not a practical action. However, if I want to actually realize this principle in its correct state, I have to fulfill it in the group. This is what the entire work is about.

Therefore it is necessary for us to have a congress for the mutual work. It is not enough to read the articles alone or even learn it by heart because the main thing is in realizing it between us. Together we begin to extract more and more information from the articles, and each time we perceive them anew: more and more deeply.

Unification Without Boundaries

laitman_936Question: When we say that unification is above everything, are there any boundaries here?

Answer: There are not and cannot be boundaries in unification because as soon as we allegedly reach them, new disturbances appear and we must again move toward new boundaries. This is the ascent on 125 degrees.

In the unification that we have achieved, we reveal the Creator, that is, the general force that connects two opposite forces in itself—positive and negative, the force of the Light and the force of the desire, plus and minus, darkness and light—together in harmony.

And what will happen between the light and the shadow? What will connect them with each other as plus and minus short-circuited on a motor or for some other user? This user is our efforts we invest in order to connect all pluses and minuses harmoniously, all positive and negative natural phenomena so that they will not seem as opposites to us.

By trying to connect them with each other in such a way, we correct ourselves. We ourselves are placed between positive and negative forces and there we connect with the Creator and reach adhesion with Him.

The Creator is the harmony of all the forces of nature, including us, that is, a person who creates this harmony within himself.

A Kabbalistic Art

laitman_942Question: How can you practically touch the heart of your ten during a workshop?

Answer: This is a Kabbalistic art: how to agree with friends in the ten, create such mutual understanding, mutual relations, and inclusiveness so that they see the goal that we want to achieve as the most important thing.

Congresses are good because we are not distracted by anything. I came here and for me there is no one except the friends I am with now. I do not want to think about anything else. At this moment I want to achieve the sense that we are adding to each other in the ten where I will reveal the Creator.

Nothing prevents me from this except myself. And my friends will act just like me. I have to believe that the Creator controls them and makes them the best figures for me. He plays with me through them.

If I constantly try to work on myself, adjust to them, add to them, and collect them together into one single whole, then inside of them I will reveal the Creator between us.

The Spiritual Root Of Gossip

laitman_600.02Question: Does gossip have a spiritual root?

Answer: Of course, it is called Lashon HaRa – evil tongue.

It kills everything between the friends. If I speak behind my friend’s back, I betray the Creator. I cheat on Him. There can be nothing else here. After all, the Creator puts the ten with all of its problems before me. Behind a friend’s back, we can only talk about how to help him and about nothing else.

There Is Nothing Bad In Nature

laitman_232.08.jpgQuestion: If I see a negative property in a friend, I have to complement it. What does this mean?

Answer: There law of nature is such that there is nothing wrong with it. And there is nothing bad in man either—not in anyone of us! The “bad” came from our shattering and so you have his fourth, in another half, and in me a third, etc.

If we collect these properties together, then they form one property of wholeness that consists of a plus and a minus. In fact, when the soul broke, negative properties were formed, and even the positive ones look negative because there is nothing that could complement them.

The wisdom of correction is to correct the separation and distance between us. We need to make our brains work in this direction: there is neither bad nor good. Separation and distance between us are bad. Therefore, we see broken properties, which always seem negative to us.

If there is nothing to oppose a broken property, no matter how positive it is, it will look negative.
