Kabbalists On Kabbalists, Part 12

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

Following the Paths of Kabbalists

This means that through adhering to wise disciples [annulling himself before them], it is possible to receive some support. In other words, only a wise disciple [he who attains the Creator with his corrected qualities] can help him, and nothing else. Even if he is great in the [regular] Torah [and not Kabbalah], he will still be called “a commoner” if he has not been rewarded with learning [in the equivalence of form in bestowal] from the Creator’s mouth. Hence, one must surrender before a wise disciple and accept what the wise disciple places on him [the guidance of how to achieve the quality of bestowal] without any arguments [neutralizing his ego in all aspects], but by way of above reason.
– Baal HaSulam, Shamati #105, “A Wise Disciple Bastard Precedes a High Priest Commoner

Mind Meshing: You Think What I Think!

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the news (from Wired.com): Experiments conducted by Princeton University neurologists Greg Stephens and Uri Hasson demonstrated that there is a mind connection between people who are participating in a conversation, and the brain activity of the listener copies processes occurring in the brain of the speaker. "Brain scans of a speaker and listener showed their neural activity synchronizing during storytelling. The stronger their reported connection, the closer the coupling."

My Comment: This is yet another confirmation that the universal and absolute connection between all parts of creation does exist. The connection is so strong that different elements of creation should be considered one whole instead of disconnected parts of the system.
