Food Thrown Away

laitman_627_2In the News (Times of Israel): “Israel is throwing away approximately 35 percent of the food it produces, to the value of an estimated NIS 18 billion in 2015, according to a report released this week by Leket Israel, the National Food Bank.

“The food waste in Israel has far-reaching implications, especially for the 17% of Israeli society considered ‘food insecure’ — those who are not sure that they will have enough food over the course of the month.

“‘There are things that we can do with very minimal effort to rescue food, but we need to have policies that will direct this, policies that come from a government level,’ said Gidi Kroch, the CEO of Leket Israel.”

My Comment: I think that it is much more than that. But even this would be enough to feed all of those in need.

Comment: Many steps are being taken to avoid throwing food away.

My Comment: Nothing will help with this or automobile accident fatalities, problems in schools, the family, and every possible place. Only the ascent of a person to the next level of development will help solve all problems.

People throw food away because what happens to others doesn’t matter to them. If you knew that your children living a few kilometers away from you were now starving, wouldn’t you bring them food?

We lack a sense that we are one family. So, it is necessary to revive this feeling between us. Then there will be plenty of everything for everyone. Otherwise, it will not be possible to solve this problem.

I am not saying that it is necessary to run and distribute food. But anyone would willingly set aside all his surpluses. So this is not even about sharing with someone, but simply about giving them the surplus we are throwing away.

Then all would be well and rational related to food. We cannot imagine the quantity of food that is thrown away in stores, supermarkets, wedding halls, and restaurants. We throw away more than we eat.

What this means is that we must organize special distribution systems. Then people will not starve and there will always be enough for everyone.

If we felt that those who are hungry were our relatives, this would push us to set our surplus aside and create a system for collecting and distributing it. The same could be done with clothing and everything else, meaning the immense surpluses of products we have manufactured.

It is possible to achieve such a feeling only when we begin to implement the great general rule, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18), or at least when we feel that we are one people.

But we can achieve this only with the help of serious re-education and in no other way. It is impossible to solve problems like these differently. We must speak and write about this so much that everyone will understand how they are living and who they are. Then it will be easier to explain to people that we need to do something about ourselves.

Kabbalah is for the unbounded movement of people in the world, but after they correct their egoism and aspire to become one family.

Immigrants calling “Na’al abouk la France!” (F… France) will soon spread throughout Europe. That’s the result of reckless liberalism.

2300 pages of The Study of the 10 Sefirot begin with the question the book is meant to answer: WHAT’S THE MEANING OF OUR LIVES?

How Can Tweet His Way Towards American Stability

amerStabHuff

Solving other people’s problems at your own expense is a mistake. To help means to train and equip #nations without changing their ways.

The brainwashing of our egocentric society gave birth to masses of people who consider themselves infallible. (An observer).

Soon, instead of recklessness and unrestrained liberalism, the world will aspire to be practical, balanced, and responsible in everything.

There’s only one solution to the refugee crisis: suitable living conditions in their homeland. Taking them in doesn’t solve the problem.

If the EU is serious about creating the Ministry of Truth, first they have to create the Ministry of Kabbalah. We’re ready to help!

Trump’s influence: The EU is ready to create the Ministry of Truth and punish spreading lies. For this, we need to correct our nature!

Only the unification of Jews that both support or oppose Trump will help Trump retain his power and spare the Jews from pogroms!

The world is in crisis, as in ancient Babylon. The world needs Abraham’s method of unification once again, so it can reach its purpose.

Our problem: the deterioration of social ties—the basis of society, economics, and politics. We weren’t brought up to connect.

Don’t blame Trump. We’re moving to a new stage of development. Hence the decline of social ties, family, society, economics, politics.

Henry Ford, “The International Jew”: “Society should demand that Jews fulfill the ancient prophecy: to bless all nations.”

Trump shows how the Internet can make traditional media and the UN obsolete. If we communicate, we can gradually solve our problems.

Kabbalah says the world must transition to a new paradigm. Trump can make for a smooth transition. Otherwise, crisis and war are ahead.

Tell Finland: Universal Basic Income will be successful only if recipients study and work with the method of human connection. #UBI

Now evident: The EU’s liberal governments can’t solve pressing national problems and only retain power by manipulating the media.

The End Of The Age Of The Ego

Laitman_115_05Opinion (Mikhail Khazin, Russian economist and political commentator): “In the past few days, there were two events that, at first glance, have no relation to each other. Moreover, they could not even be logically connected. However, symbolically, they are very close.

“The first event – the death of Fidel Castro, who personified a whole era. …

“The second event—a statement by the President of Germany Joachim Gauck that Germany needs to suspend the further integration of the EU. The fact is the idea of European integration, which in the 1980-90s was perceived as the capitalist idea equivalent of revolution, has gradually arrived at collapse. At first, she had promised everyone happiness and prosperity, which was spread all over the world, and by 2010 had reached its peak. Today it is not even a question of whether the EU would be expanded, but whether it will be able to continue as a single structure.

“And the other is the end of an era. The death of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez earlier symbolizes the exhausted potential of Latin American revolutionaries. The idea of liberal expansion is over. Practically, this means that the world will still be built on the confrontation of ideas—but it will have other ideas. And now it is important to understand what these ideas will be and how they will interact.”

My Comment: I don’t think that the world will be built on opposition as we are nearing a point in which the developing force that motivates us, egoism, has exhausted itself.

It is like when the fuel in a nuclear power plant burns up, the plant ceases to operate, and the fuel must be refilled, and so must we. This went on for thousands of years. But as of today, the whole ego has been burnt out and our nuclear power plant is gradually shutting down, quieting down: one block, then another block, and then a third block. One step at a time, glissando, the whole world is going to sleep, a standstill.

Question: What does the future hold for us?

Answer: In the future humanity will gradually grow sober and begin to ask: “What are we living for?” After all, a person has to be filled with the meaning of life! He shouldn’t just study history, geography, and literature, watch movies, etc.; he should find out why he is living.

This is a frightening question, which will increasingly manifest in humanity, will make them enter into depression, and force them to find the answer.

When humanity inevitably begins to suffer, cry out, and howl like a wolf at the moon in search of the meaning of life, then it will also begin to see clearly and reveal that there is great meaning in this vacuum! The whole vacuum is the whole meaning! This is the formula, the matrix in which we are living.

Then we will grasp it just as Adam HaRishon (the First Man) did and as the twenty generations of Kabbalists that followed him until Abraham did, and as the Kabbalists who followed Abraham did.

Eventually the circle will be closed and we will once again participate in this great venture, when people will once again start the search for the meaning of life, which they started back in ancient Babylon. In fact, to this day, this question has not been fully disclosed by humanity. In ancient Babylon a small group of people revealed it and it disappeared. Now we have to adopt their system of searching and gradually discover it on our level. This is what we are getting ready for.

We have to show humanity that is crying out: “what is the meaning of life?!” not only what the real meaning is, but also the method through which they can discover it.

Germany has lost the EU leadership. The EU is in stagnation. Now it’s France’s turn to lead the EU. Who is next?!

The EU didn’t keep its promises to bring its citizens a prosperous economy, jobs, equality and social security. This is Germany ‘s loss!

Only by mastering the method of connection above differences, can we enjoy ever greater contradictions that strengthen the connection.

Kabbalah—the method of connecting egoists—becomes revealed precisely because society now faces its egoism, yet must remain connected.

Likutey Halachot [Assorted Rules] Item 4: The main requirement for man is to achieve connection above contradictions to the degree of love

Specifically politicians, who are in constant conflict, can appreciate the merit of Kabbalah: creating connection above contradictions.

Kabbalah enables a two-tier human connection: natural selfishness and rejection below, altruism and attraction above. This is the correction!

Kabbalah enables connection ABOVE contradictions. That’s why in the future only Kabbalah will turn people into true liberal pluralists.

Our egoistic development will expose our inability to understand each other. Then, we’ll need to use Kabbalah for human connection.

The New Exodus

Laitman_727In the News (Haaretz): “Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman lashed out Monday at France for its attempt to organize an international peace summit on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and urged France’s Jews to come to Israel.”

My Comment: Lieberman is absolutely right. France is a very religious Catholic country where at one time they carried out pogroms and wars. Of course, it is not for the Jews. It will be get worse and worse.

It is possible that they will issue laws forbidding Jews to export capital or preventing them to settle in other European or American countries. Then only Israel will be left for them.

But today there are difficulties with work and housing in Israel. And the French Jews are mainly people with quite moderate means and so they will have to start from scratch.

The fact is that the departure of the Jews from France will throw the country to the level of a third world country, both spiritually and financially. I am sure of it! The exodus of the Jews from any country has always been a disaster for the country, and it will be a disaster for France.

Question: I would like to ask you as a Kabbalist: will the action of the upper force, the Creator, lead the people of Israel from all countries of the world?

Answer: Eventually, of course. And it will happen in a heightened state of hostility and hatred toward Israel. The nations of the world will make Jews leave their homes; they will be squeezed out. So they must leave while it is possible. By and large, the exodus of the European Jews has begun.

Question: Is this an optimistic note?

Answer: I am always an optimist. If the end is good, everything is good.

It’s impossible to stop the trend against corrupt liberalism by removing Trump. And it may lead to civil war and even world war.

Anti-semitism shouldn’t be primitive. It should be wiser: pushing the Jews to do their job in the world—become a light unto the nations.

If Trump realizes the Jews’ potential—as did Henry Ford—he will force them to fulfill their mission in this world: exemplify unity.

The world was eager to bring America and Russia together, but now it blames Trump for doing so. That’s what political correctness leads to.

It’s no wonder that the entire world, raised on neoliberalism, is anti-American today. But gradually, it will have to straighten up.

The world will gradually realize: only our voluntary connection will oblige the upper force to unite and elevate us to a higher level.

A tip for Trump: ask Jews supporting you to unite. They will silently force Jewish liberals to unite, thus everyone will come together.

Donald Trump vs. ‘Liberalism,’ round 1

Unsettling “Liberal” Behavior Calls For A New Socio-Political Order

feb9twitLiberal

Within our lifetime, we can rise to the next level of existence by connecting with others above ourselves. Our body will die anyway.

Opposites come together at a level that’s higher than their own. When everyone asks for the well-being of OTHERS – they all rise.

In nature, life is created precisely when + and – are unified above their differences. Humans have to do this by themselves.

Gradually, nature develops all its parts towards total interconnection. The time has come for us to participate in this consciously.
