Using The Holiday As A Trampoline

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What should the world Kli focus on now in order to feel that we are in Egypt and to really desire to come out of it?

Answer: We have to remain in an ascent instead of a descent. Each of us and all of us together should never descend or stray from the established order because this will definitely cast us down.

We must very quickly turn to the week of Passover and prepare ourselves, understanding what the exodus from Egypt means. We must prepare for this inspiration and this surge with all our might. The more powerful our aspiration will be, the more we will be influenced by the Lights of Passover.

We have to actualize this right now. First of all, we must be united. It’s not one person that comes out of Egypt, but everyone without exception: women, men, children, and the elderly. This is the unification toward the common exodus. This is what we have to think about, constantly keeping the intention.

There is less than a week left until the holiday. A “holiday” is an external sign, but by using these seven days we will be able to unite, to create such a connection and form such intentions at the lessons that we will “get a lift” forward.

Some people are experiencing a descent and others—an ascent. Others yet are feverishly undergoing changes. But we need all of these states. A person must value a descent just as an ascent because you can’t have one without the other.

  1. What is the difference between Egypt and Babylon? Which are we in?

    (I ask this because its always said that the first Kabbalists, ‘Adam’ and ‘Abraham’, emerged from Babylon, and that Abraham led Israel away from Babylon, but that eventually Israel got put into Egypt, and that ‘Moses’ needed to emerge before Israel could be removed from Egypt; it seems as though there is a similarity between the two but also a difference, because otherwise why would there be two names)
