I Wish Everyone To Reach The Final!

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What does it mean to give up everything for the sake of the spiritual goal?

Answer: To give up everything for the sake of spirituality is to determine that my goal is to reach bestowal so that only this property will reign in me, to such an extent that my “self” will not be felt anymore. Just as you don’t feel the Creator now, you won’t feel yourself. No matter what happens, no matter if people scold you or what they say about you—nothing external will affect you.

Your ego will grow bigger and bigger, but you will constantly rise above it with your power of bestowal. And then you will resemble the Creator to a certain extent.

You see, we can anger Him as much as we want, and it won’t affect Him. How does He manage to do that? Does the upper force have no mind or feelings? No, it is simply the attribute of love and bestowal that is above everything. “Love will cover all sins!” And if we come to it, this means that we are ready for Rosh Hashanah (the New Year)….

These are very difficult situations, and the faster you advance, the more you fall. It is like in sports: The one who reaches the final is the one who is best prepared to reach the goal. The selection becomes more and more uncompromising, and so fewer and fewer reach the finish line. Therefore, it is no wonder that people fall along the way. It is a pity, but this is the nature of things.

  1. Nothing is lost, expansion is the unity of opposites to reveal the higher level. Context of self changes due to expansion, just as previous brain structures changed their effect as new ones grew on top of them, above them. Loss of any part darkens the entire tree.

    I know what you mean though, it might be worth clarifying… It is like feeling only your toe(ego) and then feeling the entire body with the toe, the toe is now annulled somewhat like a candle in a torch, but it is never the less still there but relatively smaller! This is critical to be understood or we verge too far to the right line, where we are ‘dust in the wind’, looking up, only the upside down pyramid (hydromid), i looking at I. Both are needed to have clarity and truth. I am alpha and omega, not just omega.

    Keep in mind that the higher we go friend, the narrower the middle line path gets. Each additional balance, each higher gate, is more perilous, more difficult to open. We must stay strong, and keep our convictions in our true faith, that there is infinity here, and thus there is always something higher, something above all disunity. This is the power source, without it, we will fall to one side or the other, and unless the unity is on top, at kether itself, there will be war in heaven. All beware, he does not change his havayah, do not be swayed. The only actual correction is steadfastness to unity and balance, for all eternity, without end.

  2. Thank you. I see everyone in the group trying when I watch the lectures. Asking questions and studying and I think that’s neat. There’s so much good effort going into the groups.

  3. Todah Rav!…I wish the Dear World Friends the same…to reach the FINAL!!!


  4. Worse from have hate or love for the creator is not feeling anything towards him?
    It’s would be like living in such previous state of the nature. So that’s how many of us live in this world any way. Living as likening animals, bigger brain but also that’s enough to cause lot pain, however, now even that is not working as it use to be before, it’s seems like brokering and beyond repair. We are left in the middle of nothing, feeling that we have to start run really fast for ours lives. Despair and confusion is the new mode motion, without any guidance, we are doom. So kabbalah, the Rav, the group, is the wakening, a gentle tough, that’s coming from upstairs. Let’s hold it very close to ours hearts, its like won the loto millions times, what great lucky we do have, can we really imagine how something so amazing like that can happen to anyone?
