Responsible For The World

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What should we expect from the upcoming conventions? What intention should we build?

Answer: We are approaching very powerful changes due to our unification and I hope that the upcoming chain of conventions will help us to keep the intention together for a whole month without leaving it. Work, family, children, personal problems—despite all of this, unconsciously, in some corner of my mind, I leave a place for the most important thing and constantly worry about our unity, about how we advance from one convention to the next, from one day to the next, in our intentions and our inner solidarity—until there, inside, we will reveal the Creator.

We have been studying this theoretically for a long time already. So let’s truly wish for Him to be revealed. We have heard about this thousands of times—so let’s make the effort.

We cannot fall into doubts, “Again? How many times have we been through this?” We are at the threshold of a breakthrough. And the world is also demanding this. After all, it doesn’t have the slightest chance of finding any solution. In the Internet we see what kind of “solutions” are being offered in response to the modern crises, how people are trying to conceal and silence them because they don’t see any way out.

In a form that’s comfortable, clear, and close to the people, we must inform the world that there is a solution, and the faster we start realizing it, the less suffering this will cost us.

Therefore, our intention at the conventions is to start “permanently living” in the group that is bringing the whole world the solution to the crisis. There is nothing more important that we could possibly prepare or do for the world.

Right now we are at a very important point: There is a sick patient lying in front of us and his illness is almost fatal, but we can create a medicine and cure him. Then he won’t just be healthy, but will rise to the Creator’s level, to a new, eternal dimension.

Therefore, we must attribute the greatest possible importance to our efforts and our status—the ascent we are starting during these days. We have to hold ourselves accountable for what kind of task we are carrying out. Who are we to receive such a great mission—to actually participate in correcting not only the world, but all of reality?

We need to be a little bit prouder; that will help us to feel our responsibility.

  1. ‎”We need to be a little bit prouder; that will help us to feel our responsibility.”


    “Anyone who is proud, the Creator says, ‘He and I cannot dwell in the same abode,’ ” as he makes two authorities…

    I am curious why the Rav chose to invoke this. Can we explore it further?

    I have come to feel that pride, though a source of strength, invokes the power of the ego/will to receive. Doesn’t that get in the way a bit?
    Is pride in the group different?
    If the group is to be formed from our desire to connect our “points in the heart”, is pride in that even possible?

  2. There is some discussion among my group about the usage of the word Proud…

    “Anyone who is proud, the Creator says, ‘He and I cannot dwell in the same abode,’ ” as he makes two authorities…

    I wonder could this have been misconstrued in translation? Or is there perhaps another meaning in this instance?
