Adam – We Share One Common Soul

Adam – We Share One Common SoulOriginally, one soul of Adam was created, which divided into 600,000 souls, each of which divides into a great number of sparks.

However, the spiritual doesn’t divide into parts. Therefore, in reality there exists only one soul of Adam and it is contained wholly within each individual. The soul is divided into 600,000 parts by man’s egoism.

Initially, egoism expels and distances the Light from the soul. But if the ego undergoes correction through the study of Kabbalah, then the common soul shines in it.

Therefore, there are various circumstances with regard to the person:
1. He feels his individual soul and doesn’t understand that it is – the common soul,
2. Corresponding to the level of unity with the souls, the Light of the common soul shines within him,
3. When egoism is completely corrected, he feels that his soul exists in everyone, and the common soul shines for him to the fullest degree, as it does in Adam.

From here the three periods of man’s spiritual growth are created:
1. A spark of the soul,
2. The individual soul – perceives itself to be a part of the common soul, which brings about a feeling of lovesickness,
3. Approaches perfection in bestowing to the Creator; connects to the common soul. [Read more →]

A Kabbalistic Joke

Dr. Michael LaitmanA cannibal can’t sleep; he turns in his bed and sighs. His wife pokes him on the side: “Why aren’t you sleeping?” The cannibal sighs: “A question is bothering me: ‘What is the meaning of life?‘ His wife responds, reproachfully: “I told you, old fool, don’t eat Kabbalists!”

Egoism and Its Manifestations

Egoism and Its ManifestationsScientists Prescribe: A Pill for Greed
Greed – is not a defect, but an attribute of the body. A hormone called oxytocin is responsible for expressions of generosity – discovered American biochemists.

In order to prove this hypothesis, the scientists carried out an experiment: the first group of volunteers were given oxytocin, the second – a placebo. Then, all the participants were offered to help a stranger in need. Those who took the pill gave the stranger 80% more money than the others.

So, altruism shifted from a moral category to a hormonal one. And as it seems, the pill for greed will soon be available in pharmacies.

What’s your opinion?
Is it possible to find a remedy for our egoism, for all of its collective manifestations – envy, vanity, pride, grandeur, power and so on – for all of them together? Suppress them – and what would come out of it, what kind of a person would you be? Would you want this kind of transformation for yourself?

The Source of the Crisis Is Inside Us

The Source of the Crisis Is Inside UsYou know, I’m a member of the Club of Budapest, which was allegedly created as continuation of the Club of Rome.
So, the founder of the Club of Rome, Aurelio Peccei, wrote that humanity’s problem, in this stage of its evolution, doesn’t lie in the oncoming crisis but in changing human consciousness. The world changes – we don’t. Therefore, the source of the crisis is inside us – not outside.
