The Obscure New Desire That Brings Us To Kabbalah

Laitman_2009-08_2939We feel that we are in a world, which we separate into “me” and the people around me, and we try to use everything for our own benefit. This is how we act in accordance with our inner nature, and other people around us act the same way.

However, once a new desire awakens in a person, it cannot be filled by anything available in this world. This causes confusion, as a person wants something, but doesn’t know what it is that they want.

This small new desire haunts a person. It grows and brings him to a place that contains an answer. This is how a person discovers the wisdom of Kabbalah.

One doesn’t understand right away what it is, but an instinctive feeling keeps him holding on to these books and to a new society. He studies, like a child that is just imitating grown-ups.

This is how a person advances until, after some time, he begins to understand that the goal is to reveal another world in addition to the world he currently perceives.

In this second reality, everything is different. Both the person himself and the world are new.  The new desire that awakens in him is the beginning of his new “I.” When this desire develops, he discovers himself in a new world.

This is like changing the channel on a TV. A person is watching one channel and sees an image of the world. He changes the channel and suddenly finds himself viewing a completely different world. A person changes along with the new world that is revealed to him, and he begins to understand what is being revealed through the science of Kabbalah.

Women And Men Are Equal Partners In Their Work To Correct The World

Laitman_2009-06_1300_wQuestions I received about women’s role in the world’s correction, unity and being a Kabbalah student:

Question: If a woman does not go through recognition of evil, then what does she feel before she crosses the Machsom? What is her state just before the Machsom? If a woman does not go through recognition of evil, then what does she correct?

If both a man and woman are in Kabbalah, do they pass the Machsom together or can each of them pass it separately?

What is the difference between the unity achieved between men in the group and the unity attained between a man and a woman?

My Answer: Each one is for oneself with the help of all!

Question: What are the challenges and opportunities of the global economic crisis to women?

My Answer: It is the equal participation with men in the future correction of the world.

Question: Today I saw an old interview with you by a Russian journalist. There you said that you don’t have female students. My question is, if you don’t have female students what are you for the women who engage in Bnei Baruch and who follow the lectures?

My Answer: That was long, long ago…
