What Should Be Done With Countries That Won’t Comply With The Law Of Global Coexistence?

man2A question I received: The G20 summit is coming up. Let’s suppose they will hear our message and accept the principle that “All of humanity is one family.” In this case, what should we do with the “bad apples” who don’t want to comply with this principle yet? For example, what should we do with Ahmadinejad? Elect someone else or try to reeducate him? After all, as long as any part of the organism refuses to accept the law of the mutual guarantee, the whole organism suffers.

My Answer: By examining our body, we see that the organism isolates any part that’s harmful or foreign. It places that part into a “sac,” increases the temperature so it will die, and then extrudes that harmful or foreign part. If the whole world isolates a country or a block of countries, they will not be able to survive, and they ’ll accept the law of global coexistence.

We Pay Maaser When We Start To Desire Spiritual Development

How Does One Pay Maaser?Questions I received on the Maaser:

Question: Is it possible to cross the Machsom without paying Maaser?

My Answer: No.

Question: Do we correct ourselves during the initial period of study, when we do not contribute the Maaser?

My Answer: Yes, but only at your first preparatory stage. Kabbalists never accepted students who refused to follow this condition. After all, no matter how much a person tries, Malchut, the tenth Sefira, becomes corrected only when a person gives away to others one tenth of what belongs to him.

Question: Do new students who are in their first year of studies also need to give the Maaser? When should a person begin to pay the Maaser?

My Answer: One should begin to pay the Maaser when he begins to understand that he desires spiritual development. A person will not advance without making efforts. Maaser is the tenth part of the desire, which can only be corrected this way, by being given away.

Question: I have a question about the Maaser. I am a 13 year-old boy who is studying Kabbalah at your center. I do not yet earn any money and I cannot ask my mother to pay the Maaser because she does not study Kabbalah. Besides, my mother has no job. What is the solution for someone who cannot pay the Maaser? I support the center by disseminating, but the problem is, I cannot pay the Maaser because I cannot afford to.

My Answer: Only a person with his own personal income is obligated to pay Maaser. Whoever does not have a personal income has no right to pay it.

Question: If I give away 10% of my income for the dissemination of Kabbalah, will I go hungry?

My Answer: Well, have you ever really tried it?

Question: Can a person who lacks financial resources study Kabbalah?

My Answer: The study of Kabbalah is not contingent on any financial investments. All of our study materials are available on our website for everyone free of charge!

Women’s Growing Egoism Makes Children Suffer

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from BBC): Unhappy children are more likely to grow up to become adults who are permanently sick or disabled, a UK study has suggested.

Question: Almost all children who require a psychiatric evaluation exhibit the same trait: lack of maternal warmth and care. In your opinion, do mothers really care less about their children or is it that the modern-day children are not satisfied with the same care and attention that were sufficient for previous generations?

Answer: In our time, women’s egoism surpasses their maternal instinct.
