Are We Looking For A New Message Or A New Messiah?

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion: (John Lichfield on Stéphane Hessel’s book Indignez-vous!): “Mr Hessel’s slim volume – very slim – called Indignez-vous! (‘Protest!’ or ‘Cry out!’) is a publishing and social phenomenon across the Channel. More than 600,000 copies have been sold since October. The ‘book’, 19 rambling pages…, has been chosen by the readers of Le Monde as the publishing event of 2010.….

“Indignez-vous! urges young people to emulate the wartime spirit of resistance to the Nazis by rejecting the ‘insolent, selfish’ power of money and markets and by defending the social ‘values of modern democracy’….

“We know that the growth-led model for economic and political success threatens to destroy the planet. At the same time, we cannot seriously imagine any other model….

“The runaway success of his book suggests that there is a vast, potential followership (and not just in France) for a new political Messiah of the centre-left: someone who could articulate the anger and frustration of the middle classes (the new ‘masses’) and offer a convincing, democratic way through the sinister muddle of the early 21st century.”

My Comment: Unfortunately, no one says (understands) that the “the fulcrum to move the earth” is in man himself, in his change. Having changed, a person will change the world around him or her. As throughout history, man changed and by learning the laws of nature, changed the world, so now, he should first change himself, understand nature more deeply, and only after that, change the world around him.

Kabbalists On Spiritual Work In The Group, Part 7

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

Unity of the Friends

There are many sparks of sanctity in each person in the group. When you collect them into one place, they will be sufficient to create a high spiritual level for everyone.
– Baal HaSulam, A Sage’s Fruit, Vol. 1, “Letter no. 13”

Each of them had a spark of love of others, but the spark could not ignite the light of love to shine in each, so they agreed that by uniting, the sparks would become a big flame.
– The Rabash, Rabash—the Social Writings, “One Should Always Sell the Beams of His House

The power of love of friends defines our spiritual existence and is the measure of our success. Therefore, turn away from all the imaginary engagements and think only of the connection of hearts into one heart.
Baal HaSulam, A Sage’s Fruit, Vol. 1, “Letter no. 47”
