The World At The Crossroads, Part 1

420.06A few months ago, when we started preparations for the European congress, which will take place in a few days, it seemed that the most pressing issue was the unification of Europe and our need to work on this. After all, Europeans do not understand why all of their attempts to create a united Europe fail.

First of all, we need to prepare the society and build a common platform between all the European countries. Only then can we start talking about uniting Europe so that this would be a union of hearts and not banks. A union can exist only if it is based on good relations between people because we are talking about human society.

However, a few months have passed since then and the situation has deteriorated significantly; new and more urgent problems have more recently emerged. It is no longer enough to talk about the unification of Europe; it is necessary to unite the whole world. This issue is crucial today.

It is becoming more and more noticeable every day: the development of the world is rapidly accelerating. This development is inevitable, but it can go in two ways: the path of Light or the path of the natural course of evolution, which is suffering. And it depends on us, the people, which path we will choose. In any case, we must undergo this development of “absolute magnitude” whether we will move into an abyss or toward a beautiful life.

These two paths lie before us. The path of natural development is a path of separation that will inevitably doom us to strikes, suffering, unhappiness, and even world wars. And all this is only to force us to eventually go on the path of Light or at least to walk along the middle line between these two ways.

And the path of Light is the path of unity, which is the ultimate goal of our entire development. We all have to reunite as one person within one system: Adam HaRishon. And if we correctly aspire toward this goal together and by our own will, the world will move forward in a good way. If not, the world will advance with blows. We choose one way of these two.

In addition, another negative development has appeared recently: Nazis re-emerged in the United States. This is not a mere accident as they always existed; however, they were quiet and afraid to be vocal. But today, they stopped hiding.

We can talk for ages about the internal and external reasons that led to neo-Nazism raising its head in the US, but, in fact, the reasons are not important because Nazism is a natural phenomenon.

As Marx and Baal HaSulam wrote, Nazism is the next stage after socialism. If socialism does not follow the path of the right type of unification, then it degenerates into Nazism, that is, the wrong kind of unification of society.

In essence, this is the whole difference between the path of suffering and the path of Light. There is evidence that Nazi fascists had hoped that in the future the US would have become a Nazi country, united by a national-socialist idea.

This trend will continue to develop further with the help of American Jews, just as it was in Germany at the very beginning of the Nazis rise to power. Therefore, it is necessary to do everything possible to avoid the recurrence of the bitter mistakes of the past, which are already looming on the horizon.

History repeats itself and not only Europe stands at a crossroads today, but the whole world. Let us hope that we will be able to change it from the path of suffering to the good path of light.

How To Move To The Upper World

laitman_938.02Question: Is it possible to cross the border to the upper world spontaneously?

Answer: Yes. You can be in a convention, “dive” headfirst into it, and find yourself in the upper world. Like cave explorers who dive into lakes in caves and don’t know to where they will float, so too can you also float and go out to a completely different world.

Should I Get Acquainted With The People At The Congress?

laitman_938.07Question: There is not enough time at a big congress to get acquainted with everyone. How important is communication for spiritual success and what form do you recommend?

Answer: There is no need to communicate. You don’t have to get personally acquainted with everyone personally enter everyone’s soul. Just be with everybody. If they are dancing, dance with them. If they are talking, you can either talk, be silent, learn, or discuss all the problems. It is a constant work during many hours.

Conventions, Psychological Impressions, And Spirituality

Laitman_931-03Question: How is it possible to differentiate the psychological impressions in a convention from spiritual impressions? Is this possible?

Answer: I don’t think it is possible to differentiate this now. But eventually this will be possible.

Psychological impressions are what happen in my natural Kelim (vessels), in my egoism. And what is needed for spiritual impressions is the acquisition of a new Kli (vessel).

The Uniqueness Of The Current Conventions

laitman_938.07Question: How do we prepare for conventions?

Answer: As a general rule all conventions are very different, but the current conventions are unique because people who come to them are prepared. They know why they are coming and understand precisely that it is up to them to realize themselves.

Their goal is to discover the spiritual world. This is very noticeable. But it causes me a lot of tension because I must help everyone. Whether their expectations materialize, it depends on them, but I worry about them as if they were my children, so that success will shine on them.

In Hebrew, success also denotes Mazal (luck), from the word “Nozel – dripping.” These are signs of success that come down from a higher level.

We accumulate success (Mazal) above, and after that it descends to us. Everything depends on the inner need.
