Israel – One Of The Most Hated Countries In The World

withoutIn the news (from Jpost): Israel 141st out of 144 in Global Peace Index” Only three countries in the world are less peaceful than Israel, according to Global Peace Index figures released this week… Israel is positioned 141st out of 144 countries, fourth from the bottom, with only Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq ranking below… The report uses 23 indicators to determine the existence or absence of peace, such as respect for human rights, military capability, potential for terrorist attacks and perceptions of criminality in society.

My comment: Antisemitism first appeared in ancient Babylon with the establishment of the first Kabbalistic group started by a Babylonian priest named Abraham. Hatred is a result of the fact that this group operated under a different system, one of bestowal and mutual love. By the appearance of this Kabbalistic group, the world first saw a part of humanity that was under the direct influence of the Creator through a force similar to Him, that of bestowal and love. This is opposite to the naturally egoistic force under which everyone, other than the Babylonians, operates, as the non-Babylonians took the path of the development of egoism

There are two parts of humanity. One is Israel which aims itself toward the attainment of the Creator’s qualities. The other is the Nations of the World who develop under the influence of natural egoism and are in opposition to the higher forces of development. This is where hatred stems from.

Hatred will be eliminated only through the correction of all humanity. This must happen during the remaining 230 years of a total of 6,000 years of humanity’s egoistic development.

The Military Arms Race Will Have No Winners

playingIn the News (from BBC): Military spending sets new record – Global military spending rose 4% in 2008 to a record $1,464bn (£914bn) – up 45% since 1999, according to the Stockholm-based peace institute Sipri. “The global financial crisis has yet to have an impact on major arms companies’ revenues, profits and order backlogs,” Sipri said.

My Comment: The progress is evident. However, no one threatens anyone. Military race is needed only to have an opportunity to steal. Wars are needed to get rich on military orders. The entire game boils down to pumping out the state’s funds into someone’s personal pockets. The race will stop only with the beginning of egoism correction. However, until then the race will only grow, in fact, race will stop only with the beginning of egoism correction…

The Egoistic Feast Goes On

why-do-we-see-such-a-diverse-world1In the News (from The Wall Street Journal):White House Set to Appoint a Pay Czar” – The Obama administration plans to appoint a “Special Master for Compensation” to ensure that companies receiving federal bailout funds are abiding by executive-pay guidelines, according to people familiar with the matter. The administration is expected to name Kenneth Feinberg …to act as a pay czar for the Treasury Department.

My Comment: Firms’ executives continue to assign themselves payouts in billions of dollars. And they are right – who shows them a different example, since the government does the same! The egoistic feast goes on! Then – “after me the flood.”

Altering The Future Generation Through Kabbalah

ventureIn the News (from Biocompare):100 Reasons to Change the Way We Think about Genetics

For years, genes have been considered the one and only way biological traits could be passed down through generations of organisms. Increasingly, biologists are finding that non-genetic variation acquired during the life of an organism can sometimes be passed on to offspring—a phenomenon known as epigenetic inheritance…The main question now is: How often does it happen? “The analysis of these data shows that epigenetic inheritance is ubiquitous …,” write Eva Jablonka and Gal Raz, both of Tel-Aviv University in Israel.

My Comment: This is precisely what Kabbalah states: our environment influences our thoughts and desires, which in turn influence our behavior, and our behavior alters the genes of the following generations. See Baal HaSulam’s “The Freedom.”

It turns out that our thoughts and desires shape our offspring, and over the course of many centuries a human being becomes a consequence not only of the original genes, but also of the way of life (the thoughts and the desires) that his ancestors chose for themselves.

Biology illustrates to us the fact that Kabbalah is not a theoretical science, like philosophy. It is a way to selectively change ourselves and the world.

The Concept Of “Go And Earn From Each Other”

spiritual-food-is-the-light-that-fills-ones-soulA question I received: How can we distinguish true bestowal from egoistic bestowal?

My Answer: Until a person becomes worthy of the revelation of the Creator, his bestowal is purely egoistic, i.e. for his own sake. Just as when we perform a service for another person, we consider what we will receive in return. Further, we consider our profit: the gain from the bestowal must be greater than the loss!

However, even if people begin to give and help each other in this manner, while also taking into account each others’ interests, this mutual (albeit egoistic) bestowal will give us the opportunity to feel the benefit in mutual aspiration towards equal goodness, balance, acquired confidence, and we will begin to value the quality of bestowal on its own merit. The resultant act of bestowal will become less important to us, unlike the sense of this quality, the positive realization of it in ourselves, and the positive feeling from bestowal itself.

Furthermore, if a person receives something good from some source (action, deed, or from another person), he or she begins to love and admire the source itself.

Therefore, people will value the quality of bestowal, which gives them vitality, support, and confidence. They will want to acquire this quality and come closer to it. Consequently, the Light that reforms will come to them, and they will understand that it pays for them to give to each other. This is called “go and earn from each other” in the true, non-material sense. By striving for a good life, society will begin to respect bestowal and thus reveal the Creator.
