A Clear Example Is Worth A Thousand Words

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe whole world today from small to big is in need of an educational method. And it’s more difficult to get to the adults than to the children. I hope that the mass media will change and we will find additional ways besides television and Internet sites to enable our method to be accepted in the world.

On the other hand, we are building the necessary mechanisms for children and in this realm we can quickly achieve clear, demonstrative success. After all, this is a very painful topic for parents, departments of education, and overall, for every society. The young generation is literally “seeping through our fingers” and no one knows what to do about it.

That is where we can show clear examples of what is happening to our children at Bnei Baruch. They want to be with their parents, which is a very strange thing indeed. At the age of 15 to 18, a young man is next to his parents, and it’s not because he is retarded. It’s just that he wants to adopt the values of the adults and participate in what they do. Where else in the world can you find such a thing?

As a rule, a child comes home, demands food, and shuts himself up in his room with a guitar or a computer, and then leaves with his friends and comes back in the morning. Basically, he leaves home and visits occasionally. This is considered normal. But in our families at Bnei Baruch, this is not the norm.

Therefore, we have something to show the world. This is actual dissemination. If we show everyone our interconnection and mutual support in all the groups, if we show the people of Israel that all of Israel are friends, that there are thousands of people in the country who want to be together and who feel that precisely by being together they reveal the upper world, this will be true dissemination. And it will be educational dissemination because we actually change the world, turning people to face each other.

That is why this summer we are planning to organize an international children’s camp, as well as other activities in order to show the world the results of our way of upbringing. We don’t even have to say anything: Let them just find out about it and see it. Even now many people and external organizations are impressed by what is happening with our children.

So let’s view the science of Kabbalah as an educational method that raises everyone—kids and adults alike—by means of the environment, helping each of us to become Human, similar to the Creator, without any reservations.

  1. The general is in the image of the whole as G-d made man in his image. Society is built from families, so if you fix the family unit, you fix the society. Disease on one level is evident on all, we simply fail quite often to recognize the Fractal Resonance. By that I mean that the same problem is expressed on many scales at once, like nodes in a vibrating string. Except here the string is a measure of scale, with similar occurring happening at different key sizes, between family members, between cities, between nations etc. Between unities in the most general sense.

    Keep up the good work, practical example and proof is absolutely necessary for our success. We have to appeal to both the right and left hands, the earth bound and extra-terrestrial. The too sane and in-sane, the heretic and madman. Akiva had this right, and appealed to both because clearly, all is one, so something that everyone can relate to no matter what, a chromatic or all encompassing method, is key.
