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.

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!

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.

Why Doesn’t Humanity Know Anything About Kabbalah?

laitman_251Question: Kabbalah is a method of how to properly communicate between people. Humanity has been developing for thousands of years. Why doesn’t humanity know anything about this method at the beginning of the 21st century?

Answer: This has nothing to do with a person’s intelligence, but depends on whether the need to discover the reason for his existence, the question of what he is living for, has emerged in him. If he has a need for that, he arrives at the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Question: But why doesn’t a person know that? We have discovered so many things in our world, we have invented so many technological innovations, but we do not have any basic knowledge about the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Answer: A person does not need to know what he is not supposed to know yet. Therefore, Kabbalah was not revealed to the people until the 20th century, except to individual Kabbalists.

Even today, many people have no need to know about it yet. Only those who want to will be able to reach the wisdom of Kabbalah. The next intermediate phase will be when everyone aspires for Kabbalistic knowledge.

Do You Help People Find Out About The Wisdom Of Kabbalah?

laitman_565_01.jpgQuestion: I have been studying the wisdom of Kabbalah for three years. I often feel guilty about not being able to talk about the wisdom of Kabbalah with those people who are trying to find themselves. How can I do this, how can I help them?

Answer: Give them a book as a gift or invite them to a lecture, but no more than this. Don’t force a person. If it interests him, he will find out about everything.

Kabbalists And Group Organizers

laitman_947Question: The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches a person how to gather people into a group, into a community. What is the difference between real Kabbalists and ordinary people who organize groups and communities?

Answer: Kabbalists are able to assemble a community so that it will become a good community that everyone needs, in which people will want to be connected to each other and stay connected in every situation in life.

They teach the laws of nature in which we exist.

Why Are You Scaring Us?

laitman_547_05Question from Facebook: Why do you keep scaring us in your posts all the time? You keep saying that humanity is like a little rabbit hiding and shaking under a bush.

Answer: Of course! This is what I see people behaving like! On the one hand, they try to harm each other, and on the other, they are afraid to be treated in the same manner. This is how our whole life is managed.

If we don’t change, of course it will be bad!

I “frighten” people in order to warn them in advance of the sufferings, so they could avoid suffering. It is just as we say to a child: “You shouldn’t do that, you will fall, you will get hurt, and it will be painful.”

My intentions are very good, but what can I do if people think that I am just saying that? It is just like parents who want to protect a child from trouble, but cannot avoid what will happen! I will try to be gentler.

Innovation In The U.A.E: You Can Read At Work

laitman_527_07In the News (Arabian Business): “New legislation will grant employees dedicated time to read during working hours, obliges coffee shops to provide reading materials…

“The UAE [United Arab Emirates]on Monday issued the first law of its kind which aims to cement the importance of reading in the country.

“Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, has issued the legislation saying that reading and knowledge are key for the progress of the UAE. …

“’Our objective is to prepare generations that work for a brighter future of the UAE,’ the President said in a statement. …

“Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, praised the newly passed law, and hailed it as an unprecedented cultural and legislative initiative. …

“’Our objective is to make reading a daily habit in our people, where relevant entities will be required to translate this law into reality,’ he said.”

My Comment: Advancements in the high-tech world and religion require reading and still support the generation’s interest in reading. But in the end, we gradually withdraw from egoistic development. Literature and music are measures of society’s egoistic development since they are created by pure egoism. I don’t think they will remain except for only a few individual groups, but nothing more.

But great musical works, especially operas and literary masterpieces, will remain because they express the depth of human emotions, even though they are egoistic. Classical novels describe a phase in human development and so they will remain part of our culture.

Question: What kind of literature do you think people will prefer to read in the next decades?

Answer: Only manuals for operating computer programs.

Question: So people will abandon romance novels?

Answer: They are already withdrawing from them. The decline in reading novels has already begun. The fact is, the gap between generations is great.

If we want to keep in touch with the young generation, older people will need to get closer to them and not expect the young to do so. When my grandson, for example, plays computer games, I try to play with him. And if I offer to read him a book, he refuses and says: “Grandpa leave me alone.” We have no choice; the older people should follow the young.

Question: What about literature that deals with the meaning of life. Will people still be attracted to it?

Answer: Yes, but it will also change. The meaning of life that the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us about is above time so it should be presented to people in modern language.

If we take Rambam’s collection of philosophical writings for example, Ramhal’s dialogues, Rav Kook’s poetic writings, Baal HaSulam’s writings that are in a scientific style, or Rabash’s emotional writings, they are all very hard to perceive today.

Comment: You simplify the writings of Baal HaSulam and Rabash for us.

Answer: We can still read the writings of Baal HaSulam and Rabash, but the writings of Ramhal and the ARI cannot be understood by our generation.

The wisdom of Kabbalah will be rewritten in a lighter easier language in the future, but this will not be my lot.

It has to be done for the sake of humanity even now, and not only for those who are attracted to the goal of creation, but for all of humanity, so that they will understand what the great Kabbalists say about the upper system of nature, including the method and the science, and everyone should advance in this direction.

I hope that such talents will emerge among my students.

The World Needs Everyone

laitman_938_04Question: I don’t want to ask a question. I just want to say, live!. Live a long life. The world needs you. I need you very much. Thank you!

Answer: I am very glad, but you, too, especially those who study the wisdom of Kabbalah, need to become very important to the world. The world needs each of us. We must try to be a conductor of the upper knowledge for the entire world because each of us already has received a certain yearning for that.

Let’s develop it and together attain the goal.
