The Convention In Moscow: A Strive For Unity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How do we move faster before the Moscow convention so as to not be content with the inertia of the previous conventions?

Answer: This convention is taking place in a very important region. Many people look down upon Eastern Europe; however, this is exactly where the method of correction received a new push to develop. Special conditions of time and place that materialized there gave rise to the modern form of the method which we strive to realize now.

At least half of the people who actively study with us come from there. And this is not accidental: Secretly and openly, Kabbalists acted there over the centuries, supplying the nation with solid education and drawing it closer to spirituality.

And this is why it is vital to prepare ourselves for the forthcoming convention. A great force is hidden there as well as in entire Russian-speaking world. Let us hope that we will be able to unite strongly and turn the convention into a powerful event.

We will have three intensive days, seven lectures, various happenings, meetings of friends, and so on. We have to try to be together with all our might. If someone connects to us virtually, try to connect live as much as possible.

Conventions greatly accelerate our progress. Yesterday, for instance, we had a wonderful evening dedicated to the holiday of Shavuot. We felt that it didn’t pass in vain, that people are becoming imbued with our message. And it doesn’t matter that we invested a lot of efforts and means; it was worth it. There was a feeling of unity, cohesion, a desire to bond, to change toward spirituality. We heard excerpts from the works of Baal HaSulam and Rabash, and their melodies. It all makes a great impact on the people.

In our world, no other means are more powerful and effective than that. Now, we talk more openly, too; we use simpler language. New words are coming to the surface, while previously the conditions weren’t right for this yet. They appear as a response to the inner need of the people.

All of it gladdens the heart. I hope that it will bring about big, real changes in our world, and we will see the crisis as a springboard to the future of humanity. Today we stand at the threshold of the new paradigm of our entire life. Baal HaSulam writes that this is already obvious and it is backed by research.

So let us do our best.

  1. Shalom rav vHarverim,

    Great week. Thank you. The distance is fading. Important lessons this week. Important words. “try to define what is around you without reference to you” was a killer advice. Sometime one may hang in there for some time, waiting for some few words issued by the rav, words that will do it. Exploding that sticky empty dot where all desires aggregate and hide behind each others. I am out of words here.

    What I try now is purely egoistical, but without being fooled at it, as it is a final strategy: the attempt to wrap at once and for all the left line from the low degrees, in some middle line. So we may work all together, which is the sole goal.

    Oh! you are the good ones. By you good friends the whole world is justified.

    Drink the words of these souls, fellow students, and let nothing of you interfere.

    Shabbat Shalom

  2. Good for Moscow! I am excited for you and for the convention there. I live in the United States, but I’m happy knowing there are others out there and I think it’s great there are so many in Russia. Maybe others views of the country are because they are not appreciating it from a spiritual point of view, but a corporeal one. For non spiritual reasons. I guess it’s just a matter of looking deeply into things and seeing what is really going on underneath it all. I’m glad there can be people all over the world connecting with each other! 🙂
