My Meeting In New York With Neale Donald Walsch

While in New York, I had a talk with Neale Donald Walsch – an American writer and the author of the bestselling series entitled Conversations With God.

Each of the five books from the Conversations with God series has become a New York Times bestseller, with Book 1 remaining on the bestseller list for 2.5 years and holding its position as one of the most popular books on Amazon.com in the spirituality category.  In 2006, a movie was released based on the book.

As of today he has authored 15 books dealing with man’s spiritual evolution, with translations into 37 languages. Together with his wife, Walsch has founded Re-Creation (Conversation with God Foundation) – a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people return to themselves by following the path of inner development.

Understanding Must Come Before Action

is-correction-possible-without-a-man2A question I received: I understand that a spiritually developed person can feel and understand that it is necessary to preserve the balance with the universal nature, the Upper force. But at the very first stage, when one first hears this explanation, what does this balance mean for him? How does he have to alter his approach to life at the very beginning of his path?

My Answer: One cannot act before he reaches the realization of his true state! You cannot rush to act before you make a calculation based on this realization- this is actually destructive! We have had our fair share of such foolishness!

One first needs to study our world. It is a global world, where all parts are interdependent. You have to feel it! Only then can you proceed to action. Until you have reached an understanding – you should do nothing. This is similar to how one must study for a dozen years at school as a child.  Now, you must study before you are ready and able to correctly make any action.

Even The Wealthy And Elite Of The World Cannot Escape The Crisis

laitman_2009-05-28_0076_wIn the News: (from The Times Online):Shadowy Bilderberg group meet in Greece — and here’s their address” Bilderberg illuminati hold their private conclave in the five-star Greek hotel…This year the club is going to talk about depression… Bilderberg is looking at two options,” says the Bilderberg-watcher Daniel Estulin — “either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty — or an intense but shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.”

My Comment: The anxiety and disarray of the world elite ought to bring it to the only realistic solution – the acceptance of the science of Kabbalah as the method for correcting the world. No matter how absurd it may sound, the moment we delve into this method we will discover that it was prescribed precisely for our time!

The science of Kabbalah was to be revealed to humanity only twice: in ancient Babylon and in our time, when the global interconnectedness of humankind is becoming apparent. Its revelation now is in order to give us the means of bringing ourselves into harmony with Nature.  If we don’t use it, humanity is doomed!

Kabbalah Comes To Big Think

During my trip to the North America, I gave an interview to a large Internet company, Big Think.

Big Think is a global online forum connecting people and ideas. It serves as a hub for the exchange of information, knowledge content, interviews with the world’s leading experts and a forum for discussion.

Shown below are links to my interview and other video clips we have published on the Big Think website:

Let’s Travel Down The Path Of Light Together

laitman_2009-05-28_8266_wA question I received: One who does not feel emptiness will not be able to reveal anything. The approaching blows will give people this emptiness. Is there another way?

My Answer: Of course, there is. We know that the appetite is stimulated during a meal or by watching others eat.

Why is this? First of all, you are influenced by society’s opinion. Second of all, Kabbalah explains that desire appears from within (from the Reshimot and Aviut from the Kli) or that desire (appetite) is roused in a person from outside (from the environment, the Aviut from the Light).

If we receive the desire from the Light (“the Light that reforms”), we will come to the goal by the most correct path.

Therefore, if we reveal the cause of even the smallest of blows to the world, it is by understanding their cause that we reveal the Light that comes to us from the corrected state. We then see this corrected state and how wonderful and immense it is compared to our current state. This entices us to move ahead toward the goal, and we will no longer need to be pushed ahead through suffering!

There are two paths: the path of Light and the path of suffering. This is why it is necessary to give the world the explanation of the suffering!
