Where Do Our Thoughts Come From?

thoughtsA question I received: In terms of quantum physics, the universe consists of energy. Therefore everything, including thoughts, are also energy. Where do thoughts come from, and why/how does each individual think (attract) his own particular thoughts?

My Answer: There are two forces comprising everything in existence: reception and bestowal. Everything occurs between these two forces. We learn their nature by revealing them for ourselves, because we consist of both of them.

The interaction of these two forces gives rise to our desires, and the desires bring about thoughts of how to obtain what we desire. A person can influence his desires by consciously putting himself under the influence of an environment, meaning people or souls (provided one can already perceive the souls). This is how a person can intervene in his own destiny.

More Weapons Worldwide To Keep Us Safer?

war20is20no20solutionIn the News: (from the annual report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute):Global military expenditure set new record in 2008″ Global military expenditure in 2008 is estimated to have totaled $1464 billion. This represents an increase of 4 percent in real terms compared to 2007, and of 45 per cent since 1999. Military expenditure comprised approximately 2.4 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) in 2008.

My Comment: The “reason” for military spending has been changed over the years: before it was done for the sake of maintaining a balance between the East and West, whereas now it is done in the name of a global war on terrorism. Everyone has successfully been able to use this “just cause” to militarize their countries even more.

There’s A Way Out Of Cocaine Addiction: Spiritual Fulfillment

riseIn the News (from The Independent UK):Cocaine Britain: 25 percent rise in the last year” The number of cocaine users in Britain has risen by 25 percent in a year to almost one million. Martin Barnes, the chief executive of the advice charity DrugScope, said … the price of the drug has also fallen, which has made it more popular … “Cocaine use is now at its highest level among adults since 1996, with one in eight 16 to 24 year-olds reporting [they have] used the drug.”

My Comment: Man’s nature has remained the same since ancient times: he desires only “bread and entertainment.” But drugs can replace everything, and no one has the ability to revoke them. It is a vital necessity for people to escape the emptiness of life.

However, real fulfillment is only possible by attaining the Upper Level. This is what Kabbalah offers to anyone who desires it.

Even “Greedy” Trees Are Perfect, Unlike Humans

beesIn the News (from New Scientist): “’Greedy’ trees still leave room for the little plants” While they might hog the bulk of the resources, trees still leave enough “crumbs” for smaller neighboring plants to eke out a living, researchers say. The finding contradicts previous notions of plant competition and adds support to a new view of how a plant’s size affects the survival and composition of its neighboring species. …plant interactions are more complex than a ruthless contest to grab resources; many plants derive an advantage by living underneath their larger and more resource-intensive neighbors.

My Comment: Everything in Nature is perfect and interconnected. We, humans, are the only exception, and because we are imperfect, we are unable even to recognize the perfection in Nature. What looks like a struggle for power to us is actually a realization of the strict laws of Nature. Only man was created imperfect, and this was done on purpose, so he would study Nature (the Creator) and reach perfection of his own accord.
