New Life #949 – Women In The Management Of Society

New Life #949 – Women In The Management Of Society
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

In the future, women will function like mothers and will care for all of society like a family. They will be involved in education, culture, and building good connections between people, whereas men are more inclined to be involved in industry and research. A new kind of social education will redefine what it means to be feminine; a woman’s identity will no longer be associated with external beauty but with her concern for all of society.

New Life #947 – The Woman Of Tomorrow

New Life #947 – The Woman Of Tomorrow
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

The woman of tomorrow will be the head of the family and will connect everyone around her like a mother. She will be the glue between people and will help them open their hearts to one another. The family will be protected as necessary for the enjoyment of life and people will invest in the discovery of the essence of life. Men, on the other hand, will be involved in creating spiritual connection between themselves according to the rule, “And you shall love your friend as yourself,” which will give power to society.

New Life #946 – The Power Of Women

New Life #946 – The Power Of Women
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

The wisdom of Kabbalah relates to the power of women as the foundation of nature; it is up to them to advance the world toward a good place. Men are managed by women. A woman needs to awaken her man and direct him in life like a mother. Women must require a stable world from men and it is in their nature-given powers to demand this from men. Women are ready to connect to fight for a common goal, but otherwise each woman is alone.

International Women’s Day 2018 – Linkedin

Linkedin: “International Women’s Day 2018: Gender Equality from the Perspective of the Wisdom of Kabbalah

In light of International Women’s Day, I was asked to give my take on gender equality from the perspective of the wisdom of Kabbalah.

To begin with, the idea of comparing men and women is just as wrong as comparing apples and oranges. Nature designed men and women as different creatures, both biologically and psychologically. Just as our bodies work in very different ways, we also think, feel and perceive the world differently.

Therefore, the attempt to make men and women one and the same is completely unnatural. By trying to judge men and women by the same standards, and equalize them as much as possible, it’s as if we are trying to “fix” nature. And nature doesn’t need any fixing.

Rather than trying to level the differences between men and women, we need to learn how to embrace them. We should aim for harmony – not equality. That is, we have to upgrade our view on gender equality to a more holistic approach, to see how it is precisely our differences that make us capable of complementing each other to create harmony.

The whole of nature works that way – unique and opposite qualities are woven together to create life – plus and minus, contraction and expansion, heat and cold, ebb and flow, male and female. In fact, I believe this is something that women understand a lot better than men, since they are generally more sensitive to nature than men.

On the practical level, I’m not saying that men and women can’t serve in the same roles in society. Examples such as Margaret Thatcher and Angela Merkel prove that a capable woman can find herself in a position that was typically occupied by a man. However, placing a woman in a certain position just because it makes things look more “equal” is foolish and won’t do any good to society.

For instance, when a steering committee is asked to have an equal amount of men and women for the sake of “equality,” it is a childish perception of equality that aims for political correctness rather than optimal results. A steering committee could have a majority of men or a majority of women, depending on what the committee needs to achieve, and what each person brings to the table – not how we can make a poster of equality.

Western society needs more education about how various systems of nature achieve harmony when differences come together. Then, we will see that what we should strive for in society is mutual complementation, which means highlighting the unique qualities of men and women, and weaving them together to achieve the best of both worlds.

I invite you to take our free Kabbalah course and learn for yourself how to uncover your unique qualities for the benefit of all.

Our main problem is our division. The tensions and extreme differences of opinion, the covert and overt #hatred, #intolerance toward other views, exploitation of others, are destroying our #society

“The Blessing To Be With You In Your Granaries”

laitman_239Torah, Deuteronomy 28:08: The Lord will order the blessing to be with you in your granaries, and in every one of your endeavors, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you.

You will be blessed in all spiritual endeavours when you want to connect with others in order to rise higher and higher to the level of the Creator. The illumination of the upper Light will begin correcting you completely, and thus you will advance to the new degrees in revelation of the Creator in adhesion with Him.

This happens absolutely for real in our world. It is not that you purely conceptually understand what is written in the book, like any person who opens it and begins to philosophize, but you reveal the Creator with your new qualities in proportion to your similarity to Him. Thus, the upper world becomes for you the world where you begin to exist.
This is called “your granary” and “your endeavor.”

A Sense Of Humor In Men And Women

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Who has a more developed sense of humor, men or women?

Answer: Men do because men consist of two parts, male and female. Whereas women consist only of the female part. Women’s imagination  is directed towards corporeality, while men’s goes beyond it.

Therefore, men are great dreamers, romantics, writers, good chefs, chess players, and so on. How many women work in high tech, where new discoveries and inventions are being made? Not many. Mostly these are men. But women prevail in other things. And we must accept this division with respect because one cannot exist without the other. So take care of both women and men.

Women’s Spiritual Purpose

laitman_281_02Question: Are the Kabbalistic friendship, love, and mutual responsibility possible between women? Or is such a depth of mutual spiritual inclusion more typical of men?

Answer: Yes, it is more typical of men. It is much harder for women to become friends. They can unite among themselves only in order to help the men. This is their purpose and this is how they should behave.

It is practically impossible for one woman to be a true friend of another woman. Yet, to achieve the upper goal, to help the men and to connect with the Creator, they can unite with each other because they have a specific goal that isn’t between them, but above them.

Question: Who is more egoistic, men or women?

Answer: They have different type of egoism. Therefore, I can’t say who is more egoistic. It is easier for men to be connected with each other, and for women it is easier to be directed to the goal.

Why Are There So Many Single Women?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why there are so many single women nowadays?

Answer: It is because our ego grew so much that we cannot get along with each other. Women may claim that men cannot get along with them, and men may say the opposite. Our ego is so big, confused, and complicated that we cannot stand even the best person for very long.
