Thai Boys Rescue

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 7/8/18

The world is heaving a sigh of relief. After two gut-wrenching weeks, four boys were rescued from the cave in North Thailand. Yet, tension is still at its peak as eight more boys are trapped in the cave with their coach, where oxygen levels are gradually declining and water levels are threatening to rise.

Two weeks ago this dramatic portrayal would have sounded like a trailer for a blockbuster thriller. But as the script became reality, the media channels around the world are doing their best to keep us biting our nails while watching.

So what is truly driving the explosion of interest in this story? An earnest human concern or curiosity? How much do we truly fear for the fate of the Thai children? Did news about the nearly one hundred Japanese who died today due to record floods also make us similarly anxious? Or did it not have enough drama to reach our awareness?

Surely, we are addicted to sensationalism. Media producers are well aware of it, and knowingly use it to boost their ratings. They will prioritize the story that keeps us glued to the screen. And the rating counter doesn’t differentiate between the Thai cave incident and a popular world cup soccer match.

That being said, a dramatic event of global proportions does capture our common attention in a unique way. We watch, follow and even worry about it together, and without noticing, we are gradually fused into a common humanity. We are getting used to our common life as a global village.

Emotionally speaking, we aren’t there yet. But that is news to come.

Happy Independence Day America (2018)

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 7/4/18

Dearest America, the land of unlimited possibilities, 31% of your citizens are concerned about the possibility of civil war in the next few years. The time has come to help them make up and come together, before it becomes impossible for them to hear you.

Remind them, as their loving mother, that siblings can fight, disagree and even maintain their differences, but the American family’s wellbeing must remain above their feuds.

Teach them that a hostile social atmosphere enslaves them to their selfish urges and blocks their entrance to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Educate them to raise the spirit of unity above all differences, across all 50 states, and between all colors — especially between red and blue.

Newsmax Migrants

No leader or organization today seems to know how to successfully handle immigrant integration into their respective countries and societies, because there is no clear understanding of what has led to such a large-scale displacement. This situation is not limited to America. The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNRA) reported that the total number of displaced people worldwide rose to a record 68.5 million last year.

This is not only relevant for immigrants. As the world evolves, human society the world over will have to engage in a new process of learning and transformation, one that expands our perception of the world, the needs of our fellow man, and brings us to a realization that we depend on each other to not only succeed, but to survive.

Father’s Day

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 6/17/18

Father’s role is to point at the goal of life and direct his children to a path that leads to it. Mother’s role is to cradle the children with warmth and support them all along the way. Father provides authority and confidence. Mother provides abundance and nourishment.

Their mutual complementarity is necessary for the natural and healthy development of every person in our world.

In the spiritual world too, there are two forces called “father” and “mother,” which develop the soul. Two forces through which the Creator presents himself to the created being, and develops the created being.

Father’s day is a great opportunity to learn more about the father’s role within the family unit >>>>>

In his ​poignant articles he urged the Jewish people living within the borders of Israel at that time to unite – in order to prevent the terrible catastrophe that was approaching. The paper was his last attempt to promote the importance of uniting the nation.
