You Can’t Force Your Spouse To Be Interested In Kabbalah

Don't Look for Love In This WorldA question I received: How does a woman’s spiritual development depend on a man? I am a man, and the study of Kabbalah is my entire life. However, my wife watches sitcoms and thinks mostly about how to make more money. For the sake of saving our marriage she sometimes watches Channel 66 (“The Kabbalah Channel”) together with me, and even reads your blog. But nothing goes in. Can I “pull” her onto my level? I need her and we have two very young children, but on the other hand I want to devote myself completely to Kabbalah.

My Answer: Each person receives an aspiration to reveal the Upper World (a point in the heart) individually from above. You have no right to force your wife to be interested in Kabbalah.

If she allows you to study Kabbalah in your free time, then you must agree to all of her other conditions. In addition, you should show her how grateful you are to her for this. This will help you in your spiritual development and in working with your egoism.

The Effects Of Growing Egoism On Children

moses-decreed-that-kabbalah-has-to-be-taught-for-freeIn the News (from The Daily Mail): “’Condom cards’ for boys as young as 12 so they can get free access to contraceptives” Boys as young as 12 will be handed ‘condom cards’ allowing them to collect free contraceptives without their parents knowing. The taxpayer-funded scheme lets them pick up packs of condoms from football grounds, barber shops and health centres simply by showing the plastic card.

My Comment: Acceleration of development is a result of the growing egoism. Sexual activity is also connected with general dissatisfaction and “non-fulfillment.”

Humanity Must Humble Itself Before Nature

our-imaginary-reality-is-created-by-two-mechanismsIn the News (translated from Lenta.ru): Russian First Deputy Prime-Minister, Sergey Ivanov, advised to go to fortunetellers, prophets and clairvoyants to get an answer on the question about an exact date of Russia’s exit from the economic crisis, because no one can give an answer to this question. Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev, appealed to officials not to make unwarranted forecasts about the timing of Russia’s exit from the crisis.

My Comment: Soon we will begin to recognize the fact that we are dealing with an absolutely incomprehensible, unknown and unpredictable phenomenon. We will stop comparing it with past and similar events; we will stop calculating and making forecasts, we will subdue our pride, humble ourselves before Nature and gradually begin to agree with Nature’s demand to unite.

Everyone Needs To Learn The Natural Law Of Balance

laitman_2009-02-03_61

A question I received: Such notions as “God” or “universal force of nature” don’t interest ordinary people. How can we fit such lofty and global concepts into people’s lives in the 21st century? People do not feel the need for the universal force of nature or its revelation within them.

My Answer: That is not true. We have reached a state today where we all depend upon one another; we are like cogwheels tightly fit together into one system which is currently in opposition to Nature. This is a huge concern because it is the single cause of today’s crises. These crises won’t pass but will continue to escalate thereby demonstrating their effects on an ever growing scale.

This is why a person who doesn’t yet feel that his connection with the world and humanity is opposed to Nature, will discover it either with the help of our explanation or through blows. And even the “smallest” person, seemingly indifferent to all of this, will have to recognize that the way he treats other people puts him either into opposition or in agreement with the balance of Nature.

Each person will need to learn this natural law of balance because without this knowledge, he won’t be able to correct his life. One needs to consider the general system, recognizing and understanding that all of humanity is interconnected, and that mechanical actions won’t correct his soul.

Once a person hears the explanation and understands that his connection with humanity determines his success, his life, his family, health, security, pension, work, etc., he will ask: “How can this be done? How can I correct myself?” Then he is ripe to receive the method of correction.
