To Overcome The Threshold Of Insensitivity

laitman_293Humanity can go a very long way until it reaches the recognition of evil. We say that the correction should end in 6,000 years. However, according to Kabbalah 6,000 years is 6,000 degrees: NHY, HGT, and HBD. That is, if we start counting from Adam, there are 223 years left. However, these are not terrestrial years.

In the end, what difference does it make to a person if it will happen in 223 years or in 20,000 years? If he wants to do it tomorrow, he can do it tomorrow. Then it does not matter how many years remain, 200 or 2,000. We need to look at this realistically and not philosophically.

You can make it happen here and now, but if not, so what? Anyway, a person will have to die and then again find himself in another life. After death, we immediately come to the sensation of another state, not of this world, but of a slightly different and changed one.

I hope that we people who study Kabbalah nevertheless push humanity to enter what is called the land of Israel and to begin correctly transforming it for ourselves.

Question: Will a person feel happy in this movement?

Answer: If there is a prospect and a person goes after it, feeling the support of other people, then even before he starts the movement he already gradually begins to see. Without the support, he sinks into even deeper depression, but with the support he moves with joy.

In this case, a nation that understands that it moves correctly and leads the rest of humanity after it is called the people of Israel. They enter the land of Israel, meaning they begin to transform their desires for bestowal and love and by this show an example to everyone else. This is a great state for the nation and for all of humanity that will finally begin to understand how it comes to a bright future.

So many people today are in depression or take drugs! They do not see any prospect!

Yet, we are in a position to understand the plan of creation, to see how this happens in accordance with what is written in the Kabbalistic books, how this has been going on for the last 20 to 30 years, and how it is being transformed.

We join this mechanism, rotate its flywheel, and move forward knowing what will happen. It’s hard for us to explain everything to other people; they do not want to hear it. They have their own egoistic obstacles.

But how happy we should be in that we see the prospect. The rest simply exist and feel their own insignificance and absolute inability to change their destiny. Of course, this is worse than death. Therefore, they consume marijuana, take antidepressants and so on.

“Why should I have children? Why should I create a family? What am I living for? Give me a pill, I will swallow it and I will sleep. And even better if you give me a pill, I will fall asleep, and maybe I will die in a dream.”

Question: Then why don’t people hear us?

Answer: We can’t get to them, and this is a huge problem. There are so many people in the world who are suffering. They are killed, they are bullied, burned, destroyed, and shot. And still they do not hear.

Humanity still has to overcome a certain threshold of insensitivity. This is won by suffering, among other things.

Why Was Kabbalah Concealed For So Many Years?

laitman_961.2Question: Kabbalists concealed the wisdom of Kabbalah well. Now we must make great efforts to reveal it to the world. Why has it been arranged this way?

Answer: First, Kabbalists did not hide anything. They have always been for the revelation of this wisdom.

But 2,000 years ago, after the destruction of the Temple, people began to turn their backs to the wisdom of Kabbalah to such a degree that Kabbalists were forced to hide The Book of Zohar and other sources so that they would be reveled in our generation.

Baal HaSulam began to adapt the wisdom of Kabbalah to our times and only today is it being revealed.

My Page Is For You

Laitman_917.01Dear Friends!

I have been running my Facebook page for years now. When I opened this page I was driven, of course, by a feeling of deep pain and compassion for all of humanity.

After all, every day our goals and desires are fading more and more; we are abandoning everything only to exist. Our hard, selfish nature confronts us and does not allow us to enjoy life in any way. We involuntarily live this short number of years, which is given to us, and no one enjoys it.

An era has come when the science of Kabbalah can be revealed to all. With its help, we can really make our lives happy, balanced, and peaceful. I see what can be achieved with the help of the hidden forces of nature, which the science of Kabbalah allows us to disclose and properly manage.

This is why I opened my Facebook page. I truly hope that it will help us all attain a good and peaceful life on the next upper level where all our wishes can actually be fulfilled by us. I wish us all success in achieving this. Get to know what the wisdom of Kabbalah has to offer humanity.

Good luck to all of us!

Vanguard Of Humanity

laitman_941Torah, Deuteronomy 28:36: The Lord will lead you and your king whom you will have established over you, to a nation unknown to you or your fathers; and there, you will serve other deities [made] of wood and stone.

“King,” first and foremost, is those people who must lead all of humanity. If they do wrong, then naturally there is a special demand from them. We see this in the Jews. Periodically they are hit with such sufferings that no other nation has ever experienced.

However, when I see how many people are suffering today in our neighboring countries, I have great fears that all of it must somehow come back to us. If we do not start a serious ideological attack and dissemination of the wisdom of Kabbalah to humanity, then all of this will return to us like a boomerang.

We have come to a state when we must scatter Kabbalistic knowledge like seeds all over the world. After all, in relation to the entire world, we are its ideological part, its vanguard.

Who Was Baal HaSulam Addressing?

laitman_229Baal HaSulam, The Writings of the Last Generation, “Nihilism”: All these are compromises in the measurements of egoism of the individual, the state, or God’s servant. And I say that any measure of egoism is faulty and detrimental, and there is no other arrangement except altruism, in the individual, the public, and the Lord.

This is an absolutely simple, clear, and sharply pointed declaration. There are those who already understand this; there are those to whom it is gradually becoming apparent, and there are people who need everything to be explained and demonstrated for them, otherwise they will need another thousand years in order to mature to this level of awareness of the truth.

Question: Did Baal HaSulam write this for those who have already come to this realization?

Answer: Baal HaSulam felt that the time of the last generation was approaching and wrote about it for his contemporaries. From this, we can infer that he was speaking to the most progressive individuals of his generation, who were, as usual, the avant-garde of humanity and lead it forward by themselves.

That’s why it is necessary to show humanity its future mistakes, so that they do not create new problems, but rather follow those evolved individuals.

New Times – New Attainment

laitman_234Question: What is the difference between today’s attainment and attainment at the time of Baal HaSulam?

Answer: Each year attainment becomes easier. People who come to Kabbalah today are more prepared to comprehend it.

Their egoism is more productive and prepared for the rapid adaptation of spiritual states. Due to this, their path is much shorter; hence, many students who have been with me for ten years are at the level I reached in twenty years.

Question: Have the means of attainment remained the same or did something change in the methodology?

Answer: It is hard to say because the spiritual attainment of my students is different. For example, after two years of studying, under the influence of the materials of Baal HaSulam, I wrote books and none of them did so. Nevertheless, today they are at the level of twenty years of my studies of Kabbalah, although they have only been studying for ten years. It is impossible to explain. Such things can’t be measured in the years of our world.

Question: Does the current quality of attainment differ from the past quality?

Answer: Of course, today it is more concrete.

All those who come to Kabbalah today live in a completely different world, at a completely different time, and the previous generations can already envy them.

Fate Of The High Souls

laitman_938_01Writings of Baal HaSulam, “Building the Future Society”: There is an allegory about friends who were lost in the desert, hungry and thirsty. One of them had found a settlement filled abundantly with every delight. He remembered his poor brothers, but he had already drawn far off from them and did not know their place. What did he do? He began to shout out loud and blow the horn; perhaps his poor hungry friends would hear his voice, approach and come to that abundant settlement filled with every delight.

Question: How do we build such a path so people will feel that it leads to this “settlement filled with every delight”?

Answer: This transition is very difficult and far from popular. The fact is that not many people can move to the new state with their mind, powers, thoughts, and spiritual work.

“With their mind” means with the help of study and practical application of the wisdom of Kabbalah. Only a small fraction of people can do this. All the others will come to the same state precisely because of the influence of the group. The masses won’t have a choice; they will feel miserable, useless, and jobless.

And their suffering will become more internal rather than external. If once a person had no clothes and food, today he doesn’t have internal fulfillment, and this is much worse than hunger or cold. We see how people suffer from depression.

Therefore, the most important thing for us is to assemble a group of people that really can master the new stage of development, and then they will be able to pull the rest of humanity after them.

Comment: It is written that he “began to shout out loud and blow the horn; perhaps his poor hungry friends would hear his voice.”

My Comment: It doesn’t mean that he addressed the broad masses; they can’t hear the spiritual appeal.

They will be able to hear his cry if they feel miserable and hungry; otherwise, they will continue to play with their “toys,” especially since governments are interested in filling their lives with them.

Therefore, the spiritual appeal is directed to a few, and the rest will browse the Internet filled with entertainment and services created especially for them. It is possible to control the masses through the Internet without problems. They will give them free computers, only to keep everyone in an inter-tension.

Question: Is it only in order for them to not feel hunger and start to shout?

Answer: They won’t be able to. After all, the manifestation of hunger for the next state, for the meaning of life, is a fate of the high souls.

An Appeal To Readers

laitman_531_01There has recently been a flood of Russian-speaking religious people on my Facebook page.

These readers come with two complaints:

1. That what I teach is my system and has no connection to the wisdom of Kabbalah or Judaism

Answer: Everything that I teach is taken from the writings of Baal HaSulam and Rabash as well as from the Kabbalists of all times. They should study the wisdom of Kabbalah and then make their case with specifically what things they think I am saying of my own.

2. Why do you appeal to non-Jews?

Answer: This is because we are in the generation of the Messiah about whom it is said, “And all the nations shall stream to it” (Isaiah 2:2), and “My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7) and similar things.

I am asking you to study the wisdom of Kabbalah and then disagree about things. Or not to say anything initially if it is not your area. Please refrain from pointlessly arguing with my words! Thank you.

At The Entrance To The Last Generation

laitman_941Life’s direction is to attain adhesion with Him, strictly to benefit the Creator (Writings of Baal HaSulam, “The Writings of the Last Generation”).

Question: Can we, the ones who started this movement be called “the last generation?”

Answer: To act for the benefit of the connections between us means to act for the benefit of the Creator.

The last generation is just beginning its correction and it wants to change its nature. We started the movement, but practically, we are at the entrance to this state.

Question: Don’t you see our generation that lives on Earth in the frame of time? Do you see this in a more general perspective?

Answer: I don’t take into account either the Earth or humanity, but only those people who at least somehow aspire to change their nature. Nothing more than that.

The last generation starts from the small group of people who understand the goal correctly and want to change themselves.

As for our group, we already can almost be called the last generation. We must undergo some more pretty serious tests under the influence of various external and internal stresses in order to get rid of the remnants of egoism (I call them remnants, but they are very big) and firmly decide what exactly this metamorphosis is that we have to undergo.

Question: What is the difference between the group that has one foot in the last generation and the group that will already be at the final stage of the last generation?

Answer: The nature of the people at the last stage of the last generation will be completely different from our nature. They will no longer be people, but “angels” who are guided and act only according to the desire to bestow, to delight, to be connected with others for the benefit of others, and through them to the Creator. This is a completely different state!

Therefore, we are at the very beginning and must decide whether we will change ourselves to become the last generation.

Is It Possible To Influence A Person’s Perception?

Laitman_049_01Question: The more I listen to you, the more I understand that Kabbalah is Light. Through love of others, can people who are on a high spiritual level have an influence on a normal person’s emotional perception when he does not understand his spiritual state himself but only feels some kind of inner spiritual enthusiasm?

Answer: In fact, it is impossible to influence a person’s emotional perception because his spiritual state does not depend on his desire, but on his ability to rise above his ego.

Many people want spirituality, but are not ready to convince themselves that the meaning of a desire for spirituality is to rise above ourselves, above our ego. They are ready for anything except that.
