A Woman’s Influence

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from Psychological Science.org): A woman’s touch is all it takes for men to throw all caution to the wind. That’s the conclusion of a new study published online in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.

Participants were tested to see if they would take risks, such as invest money or gamble. In the experiment conducted by scientists at Columbia University, “volunteers who had received a light pat on the shoulder from a female researcher while getting instructions for a financial decision-making task were more likely to select risky investments than were the volunteers who did not receive a touch on the shoulder, those who received a pat on the shoulder from a male researcher, or those who received a handshake. Subtle physical contact by a female increased participants’ sense of security, which may have led to a greater willingness to take risks.”

The results suggest that a woman’s touch works the same on adults as it does on infants, making them feel more secure, and more willing to take risks.

My Comment: Kabbalah divides the spiritual work into two parts. The female part (Malchut) helps, inspires, directs, and provides the desire. The male part (the Screen and the Reflected Light), being directed by the female part toward the goal, goes out and "hunts," takes risks, and rises above their nature. Without the women’s participation, both men and women are unable to achieve the goal.

In the experiment, both men and women were willing to take bigger risks in hopes of receiving a bigger reward. Women are also capable of inspiring each other, cultivating bigger desires within their circle. This is the reason why we need to create a Kabbalah organization for women, instead of individual women influencing their own men. Proper cooperation between both the male and female parts will certainly secure a bright future for us all.

  1. I absolutely am in favour of the idea of a Kabbalah organisation specifically for women. I believe that such a group will help us to be clear about our true purpose in this world, and strengthen our faith above reason in this goal and in the Creator, because once we have this strength of faith and clarity not only will we be able to correct our egoistic desires toward the men in our lives, we’ll also be able to help the men in our lives to advance towards this goal. When women can correct their egoistic desires, they can influence men to follow and do the same.

  2. Why does there have to be separate places within the same organization. I don’t understand, it is too complicated. You say cooperation and you put up separate places. I am annoyed with this.
