Reverse – Return Back To Nature

Laitman_414We need to understand that the method of connection offered by Kabbalah does not obligate a person, but rather, and in a very real way, brings him benefit. It makes it possible to avoid blows and achieve a good life because there is nothing better than being in balance with nature.

Let us say, right now I am cold, and someone next to me is hot. Animals have almost no such sensations: they do not need to dress or undress in +100 degrees to -100 degrees temperature.

We need to bring ourselves into compliance with nature, but instead we rush in any other direction. This is the whole problem. A person needs to understand that it is best to exist within clear laws of human development because in this way we are always swimming with the most beneficial current.

Nature is one system and therefore relates to all people as to one person. And the less we are scattered between different goals and different opinions and the more we are aimed at one goal, at one opinion, in one direction, the closer we come to nature, to its current, and to this extent we will begin to receive all the benefits from it.

Right now we cannot even imagine what laws and opportunities we will uncover. A person will not need to exert any effort in the material world. Already we are discovering that with the help of simple methods, it is possible to acquire many times more energy than what we are able to now, greatly expand stores.

Hidden in nature are such possibilities and nothing is required of us. It is like we do a “reverse,” returning back to nature, and in the process find ourselves in the most positive and beneficial state.

Everything that has occupied us up to this point is the need to protect ourselves from all possible blows and threats and to provide ourselves with what is necessary. But when we achieve balance with nature, we will no longer need such protection from it. Nature will become friendly toward us, rather than being as hostile as it is today.

Scholarship Instead Of Welfare For Unemployment, Part 1

laitman_220Question: One of the problems of the modern world is mass unemployment. Thanks to the development of newest technology, the job market is going through significant changes. Slowly all professions will become unnecessary: computers will replace human beings at the workplace.

How do you feel about the implementation of universal basic income independent of whether an individual is working or not, which is being discussed all over the world and is already being introduced in several countries?

Answer: Sooner or later, based on the prognosis, and as soon as in a few years, the world with come to the end of its egoistic development. The end of the development of egoism is demonstrated by the elite taking 99.9% of all money for itself, leaving nothing for others. And in addition, the need for billions of people is also disappearing.

The elite no longer need them, but what is to be done with them? This is why, through the mass media, the masses are being persuaded to no longer desire to marry or have children; same-sex marriages are being advertised. But still, there is a need to somehow feed those who are still living, and that is why a decision is made to introduce guaranteed basic income.

That is, we see how capitalist countries are becoming almost socialist, since, excluding the financial elite, the rest of the government is becoming a system of welfare distribution. There is no way out, the population needs to be supported somehow. Even if they do not have work and have nothing to do, they still need to exist somehow.

I don’t know if these reforms will pass quietly and peacefully. Essentially, the money the elite have, they took from the people. And now they want to pay-off and return pitiful crumbs to the people? They will still be presented with a bill.

I have a great sense of foreboding in response to the possible development of events if the population is not given integral education and is not appeased. Even though calming them down can be done in various ways, perhaps the elite will decide to pass out narcotics so the people no longer need or demand anything.

Here arise such problems that eventually will still bring humanity to the need for correction, which is only possible through integral education. Even though, of course, it will not be easy to convince the elite of this.

It may be possible to begin in smaller countries by introducing integral education in some form: through educational facilities, systems of education for adults and senior citizens. And gradually develop this method of education until the entire society begins to feel what a huge benefit it brings.

Question: So you support the implementation of guaranteed base-level income?

Answer: I do not support it in the form in which it is now proposed. I would attach mandatory integral education to it. And this basic income would not be welfare benefit for the poor, but a scholarship payable to students. It should be received only by those who are enrolled in the course of study of integral education.

Question: How long will an individual be able to study and receive the scholarship?

Answer: Their entire life! In our global world, it is possible to pass such laws around the entire planet, so that not a single person could avoid them. We are talking about saving the world from a global catastrophe. Of course, it has not yet materialized and its development may still take several years, possibly being inherited by our children. But, it will inevitably happen. Already today, in Italy and Spain, the unemployment rate is about 30%.

Therefore, governments have no way out; they will have to begin introducing integral education. Otherwise, what will they do with the masses of unemployed people? They do not want to see their countries turn into wild jungles.

Enflamed Egoism – The Cause Of Global Warming

laitman_293From “The Crisis and Its Solution” (Forum in Arosa, 2006):

Utilizing all forms of mass media, advertising, persuasion and upbringing, the new social perspective must:

1. Condemn egoistic activity openly and firmly;
2. praise altruistic activity as being of highest value.

The topic of “giving back to society” must resound as the only and the highest social value.

Of course, had we received this kind of upbringing from childhood in kindergarten, school and onward through all forms of mass media—newspapers, radio, television— with the topic of giving back to society constantly resounding above the background noise of all other events, then all of humanity would have acquired a completely different form.

We have to come to this through the realization of evil, always revealing to a greater and greater degree that not one of our plans will be realized.

Man will not be able to realize even his most simple egoistic plans: the desire to succeed, to win, to delight in something. A question arises: Why? First, it is necessary to understand that nature has its own plans, according to which we develop. There is nothing to be done about this; we have to follow them instead of trying to create our own.

Suddenly a group of people gathers who want to take power. They organize a party and present their program of change for the world, the country, and the people. But where do they get these plans that seem so right to them? Does human society not need to develop according to nature? And would going against it not condemn us to suffering?

And still we continue to see in our world how each party and each ruler who come to power for several years ruin what can be ruined, and leaves. And he is replaced by a new party with new pretty promises to fix everything, but it only completes the destruction. No one cares what happens after they leave. There is not enough responsibility or understanding of what needs to be done.

There is no awareness that within nature is a specific program of development for human society, just as for every other part. All our research in nature proves that she knows what she is doing and develops everything in accordance with a clear plan, which has been in effect since before the appearance of humans on earth.

Planet earth evolved according to the laws of development of the inanimate level of nature, after that, the vegetative, animal, and finally, human. The entire evolution was programmed.

Inanimate nature plants, and animals suffer only as a result of human beings, and if not for us, they would not be suffering. Because there are no egoistic forces in them, they do not resist nature’s program, but instinctively obey all her laws.

But a human comes to this world in order to develop his egoism and to understand that by doing this he puts himself in opposition to nature. This is done on purpose, in order for him to compare his nature with the rest of nature and come to his own desire to follow her program, which is called the adhesion of creation with the Creator.

The work of a Kabbalist is to bring this knowledge to all of humanity. Today all conditions are available for this, both positive and negative. Negative conditions are revealed in the shattering of humanity, the global crisis.

Positive conditions are revealed in the global system of connection, the Internet, the ability to influence people outside the usual channels of mass media that follow their own selfish goals and propagate the viewpoints of those who pay them.

All that needs to be done is to “condemn egoistic actions openly and firmly, and praise altruistic actions as being of highest value.” Slowly it will reach humanity.

The most important point to convey in this explanation is that this comes from the laws of nature, from which we cannot escape. It is not a plan or principles dreamed up by some political party, but are the result of an intensive investigation of nature. And so we are not being asked if we agree with it or not—we are obliged to bring human society into agreement with the laws nature.

If human society enters this process, which is followed by the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels of nature, then all levels will begin to function correctly. Therefore, if we correct the human being, then there will be no climate catastrophes, threats of global warming, or ice age.

Global warming does not depend on the external actions of people or exhaust fumes in the atmosphere, but only on the rise and fall of man. The cause is not in the development of our industrial technology, but in our egoistic interactions between each other—namely, it is the flame of our egoism that is raising the temperature in nature.

Liberation

Dr. Michael LaitmanThere are two approaches to life. The first approach is to devote most of our attention to this world, getting as much pleasure out of it as possible. This is why humanity conquers space and explores the depths of an atom. All this is work with the matter.

But the wisdom of Kabbalah says that instead of flying to distant stars we need to delve into the depth of a human being. The world is uncovered within us, we see the world within ourselves. A person perceives the reality with his consciousness and therefore, by changing it he changes the reality.

Reality is a reflection of our inner qualities. By correcting our inner qualities, we begin to see the spiritual world. And by returning to our original egoistic characteristics, we see this world.

That is why even in relation to the Torah there are two approaches. There are those who observe the commandments of the Torah only in their actions, thinking that the Torah describes external observance. And that is why such Torah is called external, because it is observed only through physical actions and words. But there are people called Kabbalists who believe that following the Torah is an internal action, carried out by changing human nature.

By working in the group according to the method of Kabbalah and attracting the Light that Reforms, a person begins to fulfill the Torah and the commandments not only with hands, legs, and words, but through the desire that is corrected with the help of the Light and divided into 613 parts. And this why it is said, “the opinion of the Torah is opposite to the opinion of the masses.”

The external approach is also associated with the study of nature by regular sciences, the aspiration to explore the depths of the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels, and to transform the world by changing nature and governments externally. 

In contrast, the wisdom of Kabbalah says that if the world is the result of our perception, then it is necessary to correct only our perception, our inner qualities. Only in this manner can we change the world, humanity, man, and all of reality to such an extent that we will begin to experience the world as eternal, perfect, and limitless.

For this reason the opinion of the masses differs from that of the Torah, and there is nothing that can be done about this, it is not possible to bring them together. Little by little the upper Light operates on humanity, advancing it toward the need to acknowledge the truth and realize that all of reality exists within. There is nothing outside of us, everything is perceived within our awareness.

The passage from the general world-view, accepted by all humanity that perceives the world as external to them, to the world as a product of perception within human awareness, is called liberation. The eyes of the masses will open and they will begin to approach the truth.

Then the wisdom of Kabbalah will be revealed not only to specific individuals, but to all, and it will explain to all of humanity its mission and the purpose of man in this reality.

Everyone will realize that our world is not this planet Earth, where we are destined to be born and die, but that it is a small stop-over station, a starting point, from which we have to begin to develop further.
