Everything Is Corrected By The Upper Light

laitman_239Question: Is it possible to feel the upper Light to such an extent that I will begin to be healed in this world?

Answer: It is possible, but no one can promise. It is not easy.

The upper Light corrects absolutely everything at all levels: physical, moral, psychological, etc. But we still cannot purposefully influence this. The time will come when you will gain a little experience and see that Kabbalah can really do everything.

Question: On the other hand, you claim that one cannot ask for himself. Or are there cases when you can ask for yourself?

Answer: If a person is unable to engage in the higher spiritual work because something hinders him, he can ask to rise above these disturbances.

Happy Pills

laitman_552.03In the News (New York Magazine): “Do modern realities merit an increased dependence on Xanax? Steven Hayes, a clinical psychologist at the University of Nevada, believes that benzos stop a gap that evolution has yet to fill. As humans try to control an exponentially growing number of inputs with which they are confronted, ‘our attention becomes less flexible, our minds become more chattering, and the next thing we know, we’re frantic.’

Humans are ill-equipped to process or accommodate all these new signals. ‘Our task now is to create modern minds for the modern world, and that modern mind has to be psychologically flexible.’ In the absence of that flexibility, Hayes says, people need a bridge—a pill—between what life doles out and what people can realistically handle.”

My Comment: The world is developing too quickly and people are simply unable to adapt, unable to cope with all of its challenges. Therefore, advances in modern pharmacology come to help.

When taking a course of typical antidepressants, one must wait two to three weeks before starting to feel any effect. With Xanax, it’s much simpler: get nervous, take a pill, calm down. The drug is similar to a cup of coffee and doesn’t even cost that much.

Xanax disconnects a person from the problem. If life has him by the throat, then of course, this is a blessing for him. This will work until he realizes that he needs to attain the truth. Only then will he reject these “sleep-inducing” methods. He will throw Xanax away and pick up a book on Kabbalah.

Can The Wisdom Of Kabbalah Save A Person From Depression?

Laitman_092Question: Can the power of the Light that is inherent in the wisdom of Kabbalah save me from depression?

Answer: If your depression exists physiologically, as a result of a shortage of certain chemical substances, then you need the addition of these chemicals. Today, this is a widespread phenomenon.

But if the depression comes from an inner imbalance, then I am sure that it will be filled by the wisdom of Kabbalah. A person moves to a new system of balance. He begins to balance the positive and negative systems.

He requires a proper environment that supports him and a teacher who explains how it is possible to attain the proper mixture of positive and negative characteristics. It is up to him to listen to the teacher and try to implement his recommendations.

The method of Kabbalah elevates a person above all the problems. But the wisdom of Kabbalah emphasizes that the problems will exist anyway, and new problems will begin to appear so that the person will balance them through the right line.

Question: Does it follow that this problem is basically psychological?

Answer: All problems are psychological. If a person constantly receives for himself, then, in principle, he is limited and cannot enjoy.

Question: The wisdom of Kabbalah offers a new formula for pleasure, which is bestowal. If I constantly think about others and bestow, will I be happy then?

Answer: The state of pleasure from bestowal still has to be achieved. But if you have such an opportunity, then your happiness will truly be limitless, you can bestow as much as you want and at the same time enjoy it. In this case, the perception of happiness itself is correct; it is like a mother who wants to give everything to her child.

If a person is in the right group, then through mutual bestowal to each other they not only begin to feel happiness and spiritual ascent, but they also discover that the Creator is among them.

Why Does Cancer Affect Younger People?

627.2Question: Why does cancer affect younger people?

Answer: It is because our egoism constantly expands. Cancer is the direct consequence of our ego, which devours everything around itself, and then it dies with the body. Everything depends only on egoism.

Try to deal with its eradication in cancer patients, and you will see results. I do not guarantee that there will be complete success, but there will be relative success.

Question: You do not guarantee absolute success because we are all connected in one way or another?

Answer: Firstly, we are all connected. Secondly, if we would be properly engaged in group spiritual work, then it will cause the group’s rejuvenation, recovery, and even relative healing of the body.

We have to constantly think about the group, be inside it. Even a small group is already the center of physical, spiritual, and moral health.

Try to do this, and you will see that you will not have any questions, you will start to answer them. You will feel the entire system from the connection among yourselves. It is natural. We have nothing to think about, only to act in a mutual connection among each other.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 194

Laitman_632.4Question: Schizophrenia is not an illness in the usual sense; rather, it is a conceptual model that is incompatible with our world. It involves feeling the vibrations of different forces that are not synchronized in any way with the perception of society.

There is an idea that such people can exist and interact normally if they integrate their consciousness into social processes. The question is, what will the main support for this be? What do schizophrenics and those who communicate with them need to take into account in order to come into synchrony and a correct interrelationship? How should we design a society to communicate with someone with schizophrenia through the right connection?

Answer: Everything is solved only by building a society according to the model that Moses built, a society that is composed of groups of ten people, hundreds, thousands, etc.

Become Healthier

laitman_565.01Question: Can diseases indicate incorrect steps in spiritual advancement?

Answer: All diseases indicate this. We must understand that above our corporeal (material) system is a spiritual system from where everything descends.

Therefore, there is not a single physical disease that is not a consequence of spiritual disorder. And treatment, too, we can cure our body as much as we like, but until we cure our souls, the bodies will not get rid of any problems. There are such diseases that cannot be cured at all on the animalistic level.

If we start forming one mutually supportive system together, then we can really become healthier. Even educators say that if we bring up children in a good collective, they become healthier. This is clear to everyone.

laitman_615.1Question: Are my illnesses connected to the way I communicate with my group of ten?

Answer: I don’t think so. But if you connect with it correctly, you can be cured of everything.

Question: Is there such a thing as Kabbalistic medicine?

Answer: Kabbalistic medicine is a very simple thing: draw the upper Light onto yourself and you will be healed. There is nothing else.

Question: I work as a coal miner. Can the wisdom of Kabbalah restore my health?

Answer: This is a very difficult question and the answer is not simple at all. Everything depends on the society you are in. You surely can be healed, but to what extent, I cannot say.

It depends on the group, the place where you are, how you study. I would recommend that you go deeper into this and you will see how new internal forces are revealed in you.

Question: Can congenital defects like blindness and deafness become an impediment to learning the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: Congenital defects are not an impediment to learning the wisdom of Kabbalah. I believe in the power of the upper Light, which can change absolutely everything, but when it comes to a bodily defect, the change can no longer be in this incarnation, in this life.

When Will Mental Illnesses Disappear?

laitman_600.02Question: Could mental illnesses disappear from the world? How can this happen?

Answer: Psychiatric disorders will disappear very quickly if we become closer to one another. They appear only because we are separated from each other.

When we begin to connect again, or at least aspire to our common united state, then the Light will begin to cleanse us from within—all of us together—and we will again complement each other in a single harmonic system, and once again become a correctly functioning single organism.

Then all problems will disappear. After all, all diseases appear because we are separated, like a dismembered body.

My Facebook Page: “Marijuana vs The Meaning Of Life”

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 2/1/18

As a Kabbalist, I was asked about the connection between the growing trend of legalizing marijuana and the search for the meaning of life.

The wisdom of Kabbalah is a method for developing our desire to discover the meaning of life.


Easy Death

laitman_561Question: How do you feel about euthanasia? There is a new invention: a machine that allows terminally ill patients to die completely painlessly and in just a few seconds. And the person can be buried right away, right in this machine. How do you feel about such an exit from life: easy, calm, without fear?

Answer: In principle, I cannot say anything. It is a personal decision. Death is always painful, always unpleasant. Today, many people take advantage of a variety of options to move on to the next world painlessly. But this is just one point of view.

From another point view, Baal HaSulam used to say that, if possible, it is worth trying not to avoid this pain. It’s difficult to talk like this, but I have to tell people this because this pain is anti-egoistic. It cleanses a person.

We need to make sure that an individual has already crossed over into a different life before he leaves this one. Then, parting with this life will not be painful for him—he has left and that’s it.

Let’s hope that we are now approaching a time when humanity is capable of discovering this possibility for itself, then it will be a simple, calm transition from one life to another.

In principle, euthanasia is not necessary. If I already feel the next state, then I can just allow my body to die. I observe its death from afar and this isn’t painful for me in any way. It isn’t frightening or sad. I am already living within my next body—my spiritual body, the body of the soul.
