Physical Body And Soul

laitman_626Question: Is the human physical body part of creation?

Answer: The physical body is not a part of creation and has nothing to do with the soul. You can do anything with your body, but the soul develops according to its own specific laws.

Question: What does it mean when it is written that the sparks of the soul fell into this world and dressed in bodies?

Answer: This world only means egoism. Therefore, the sparks of the soul fell not into this world and not into the bodies, but into egoism.

Our body and what we observe, see, and perceive with our five corporeal senses belongs to the animate level. Kabbalah says nothing about the animate level.

How To Become Successful

laitman_565.01Question from Facebook: I have heard a lot of different advice on how to become successful. What is your advice as a Kabbalist on how to become successful?

Answer: First, imagine that you are successful and you do not need to become anyone.

Second, success is either short-lived or perfect and eternal, and then it is success in connection with the Creator, in the ascent above our world. If you wish this kind of success, the method of Kabbalah is at your service.

On the way to its realization, you will understand that the very movement forward is considered success.

Decipher The Pentateuch

laitman_527.07Question: What does it mean that Kabbalah is revealed in the world if the main Kabbalistic book, Moses’ Pentateuch has been published in billions of copies?

Answer: And how is the Torah (The Bible) revealed? Its essence remains concealed.

This book was written 3,000 years ago. Its appearance is an extraordinary event. How it is written, its language, is wondrous!

However, the fact is that no one understands the true essence of the Torah, and this true essence must be revealed.

After the Torah, there are Prophets (Neviim) and Scriptures (Ktuvim). These are all great books, but they are written in a language that needs to be deciphered.

The Creator Chose You

laitman_284It is said about the people of Israel: “The Creator chose you.” He chose them by giving them a bigger and more developed desire to enjoy. This would make them feel the need to engage in the purpose of creation and correction and find an answer to the question about the meaning of life.

Such questions were revealed in a small group of people whom Abraham took from all the Babylonians and formed as the group of “Israel” (Yashar-Kel – directly to the Creator). This is how their inner desire, received from above, was directed.

After the breaking of Adam’s soul from the tree of knowledge, all pieces fell and mixed. But under the influence of the reforming Light, the lightest and less broken parts of the soul begin to rise first. The people of Israel seem the most egoistic, but this is because egoism reveals itself in them. In fact, the greatest egoism lies in those souls that ascend later.

First, there was a shattering and mixing of all parts, and then it filtered from this sediment, from all its layers, and was distributed according to the degrees of egoism. The same order applies to our world. There are very intelligent people, scientists and inventors, and there are technical specialists and engineers who implement these inventions in practice. And then these innovations are transferred to people to use.

It is the same way, in the wisdom of Kabbalah, there are scholars who are Kabbalists. Then there is the “technical staff,” the students who take these ideas and bring them to the people. And when people receive it, then everyone uses it to the best of their ability.

For example, when one buys a car, he does not care what is inside the car, the main thing is to learn how to drive it. But there are specialists who built this car and understand how it works. The wisdom of Kabbalah is organized in the same way as other sciences.

Our generation is in crisis because it is time for us to know how nature works and to get to know all of its systems. We have already fully realized ourselves in the material form: What else can we do, add a few more buttons? A person will still remain the same inside.

Throughout the history of development, man has tried to build external systems that will give him happiness, joy, and tranquility. And we built a material paradise around ourselves, but we see that it has not brought happiness.

On the contrary, we hit a dead end. Material well-being does not free us from problems and does not fulfill us. It is now that we reveal that we are completely empty, although we are in the midst of complete abundance. This is called the realization of evil in which we understand that we need to correct ourselves within ourselves, because this is where the problem lies. Therefore, the time has come for this correction.

As once we were engaged in the correction of the external world, so now we need to turn to the correction of man’s inner world. And in this, too, there are “scientists,” “engineers,” and “users.”

My Facebook Page: “9 Facts About Purim”

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 3/1/18

Fact #8

The Meaning of the Custom to Get Excessively Drunk on Purim

After our salvation through our unity, the joy erupts, and it is a commandment to drink until we cannot tell right from wrong. This is because our unity spreads unity, until every person and nation willfully makes the right “click” to each other. By this, we become a “light unto nations,” a beacon of the light of unification for the whole of humanity.

By uniting, we would not need to watch our backs all the time like we do now. Also, we would not distrust or suspect any one of any devious or underhanded intentions, since we would be as a single person. Intoxication signifies the blurring of lines between Haman and Mordechai, since when united, the tension between these tendencies becomes released in euphoric joy.

New Life #198 – Falling In Love, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

What influences the process of falling in love? What must we learn about ourselves to communicate correctly? And how do relationships serve as a means for clarifying our need for mutual connection?

Building a true, internal connection with a partner opens up an entire world. We begin to play together with a chord of mutual complementarity. Being a part of a group that aims toward connection in general can support us in our search for the right partner.

How To Envision The Connection Between Us

laitman_264.01Question: How can we envision the connection between us?

Answer: Those who have not reached spirituality and just want to enter it can imagine this connection in different forms. The connections between us already exist, we just do not see them. They will be revealed to us to the extent that we acquire the intention to bestow.

Have you ever seen how laser beams are revealed by using a special spray in the room? After using a special spray, these beams become visible. But without the spray, they were invisible because they had nothing to reveal them.

This is exactly what we need to do because the connections between us already exist. We just need to make efforts for our relationships to become as loving as possible. And then these invisible threads will start to glow and we will feel that they really exist. In this way, we will be able to uncover the network that connects us, which is already available.

We will gradually reveal its increasing and greater complexity and will find that we are all interconnected by a multitude of threads. These links will become more spiritual, that is, aimed at bestowal.

This will happen at every step, as it is said, “the waste of the higher is food for the lower.” That is, we need to constantly improve ourselves in order to make our relationships with each other more qualitative and altruistic.
Ultimately, the whole world will join this network of connections because we are all one spiritual vessel.

New Life #196 – Creating A Relationship As A Couple, Part 2

New Life 196 – Creating A Relationship As A Couple, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Love is born from mutual investment. Sex reveals additional depth in the communication between partners. Self-awareness and awareness of one’s partner help us to be flexible and accommodate one another. An ideal relationship occurs when two become one and the couple then also unites with society as a whole.
