The Entire History Is Within Us

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Zohar, Chapter “VaYechi (And Jacob Lived), Item 24: The third exile is the long exile that we are in, which corresponds to 100 years in Jacob’s life compared to the forty (years) in the exile in Babylon.

We shouldn’t view this story as an historic recounting. There is no such thing as history. The reality we think we live in transpires within us as imaginary pictures; it unfolds inside of our desire (Kli).

All we are supposed to do is to correct the program of our perception. As we do that, we will sense genuine reality through our authentic properties (that are similar to the Creator who makes them).

This is why we have to treat The Zohar’s narrations as an invitation to reveal everything it describes from within, in our sensations and consciousness, and our minds and hearts.

From the 2nd part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 8/16/10, The Zohar

  1. Dear Rav,I am very happy studying one of your books:Attaining the worlds beyond.My question is this,and is related to religion.My family raised me a catholic but I always questioned Jesus and religion and rejected it like an atheist would do.I want to know why the Bible has an extra part about Jesus?Also,as I’m learning more in Kabbalah I am distancing more from religion misconceptions and I can feel that reality is something very ,very different from all I know,even from what I learned at school.I am an immigrant from Mexico and I know that Catholic religion,together with the Spanish Army,were used to conquered the mexican indians when Spain arrived in Mexico in 1521.So,why Jesus?Was not enough the Torah?Why do we need another intermediary to relate with the Creator?
