My Good Environment – Dr. Laitman’s Advice and Principles for the Week

Hungry For Unity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What’s the right way to enter the convention and what should its result be?

Answer: In order for the convention to produce good results, everyone has to be “burning” with anticipation and inspiration. Everyone has to feel the strongest “hunger” for unity, in which the upper force that reigns among us will be revealed. It is written, “I dwell within my nation.” This is the preparation to the convention.

As a result of it, we should really reveal the force of our unity, reveal the upper Light in practice, the energy of the interconnection between us—not in emotions, but in real sensation. This will be the real Light, with a specific level of Aviut, with a specific mechanism of connection between us.

By feeling out these qualities, we begin to reveal something beyond our bodies, to reveal in new vessels, in a new perception. Then we will detach from the body and will enter a reality existing outside of the flesh. That is how we will enter the human dimension.

Let us hope that this will happen! Let’s get to work!

Mutual Guarantee De-Facto

Dr. Michael LaitmanBaal HaSulam, “The Love for the Creator and Love for the Created Beings”: That is the reason he conditioned the mutual guarantee in the participation of the entire world. It shows that an individual cannot come to the desired goal on the spiritual path if not through the aid of all the people of the world.

This is very important. Even the greatest Kabbalist never attains the end of correction unless the whole world attains it to its final detail. It’s similar to how the body cannot be perfect if the function of at least one of its cells is disrupted. After all, this is an integral system.

That means the whole world has to reach the end of correction and the only question is, in what order do we correct ourselves. Some souls awakened before Abraham’s time, and some—in subsequent life cycles. Some are awakening today, and some haven’t awakened yet. Everyone has their own time and place in the common work of correction.

Thus, each and every correction that one performs affects the whole world.

A person incorporates the whole world and is included in every person as well. And that means everyone is corrected through him. This somewhat explains the laws of the integral system to us, which is exposing the universal interconnection today.

It is said, “But one sinner destroyeth much good.” It means that one’s sinning reduces the weight on the scale, as though that person took back the goodness he had put on the scale. By that one turns the world backwards.

This is the mutual guarantee, the real situation de-facto. It was concealed until now, which is why we were not required to observe this law, but today it is being revealed and is advancing the corresponding demands to us.

There is the desired and the actual. The actual is the system of universal interconnection that is being revealed where we are all included in one another. 80 years ago Baal HaSulam already wrote that the whole world is one family. Back then people didn’t feel it yet, but today we are finally starting to discover a certain connection, even though it still isn’t as tight as in a family. Even though our interdependence is unwanted, it is already obvious.

From one day to the next, this systematic connection will come through more and more clearly. We will see that every person influences everyone and is subject to everyone’s influence. This will seem horrible to us: How can we be under the whole world’s power?

There is simply nowhere for me to run, and that means I have to take care of worldwide education and correction of correct, good interconnections between people as fast as possible. Because this horrible interconnection really does exist, we all have to awaken at least a bit of pity, compassion, and empathy for others in every person. After all, we are all interconnected for good or for bad, and our influence is passed from each person to everyone and from everyone to each.

The Lack Of World Leadership

Opinion: (Mikhail Gorbachev, the former first secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, from “The 2008 crisis ‘is not just a financial crisis; it is the crisis of a development model based on market fundamentalism, making excessive profits, consumerism, and social and environmental irresponsibility’ said Mikhail Gorbachev, who sees the occupation of the public parks of western cities as ‘a legitimate protest conducted in accordance with democratic rules.’

“According to Mikhail Gorbachev, the world is not much safer today than before the end of the Cold War because diplomacy does not work. The former Soviet leader lamented the proliferation ‘of conflicts and crises, not only in Third World countries, but also in Europe…’

“Instead of a new world order, there has been a growing unrest and confusion in the world because of a lack of leadership at the international level, said Mr Gorbachev. The G8 is not representative enough, and the G20 has not yet become an effective tool to solve problems.”

Europe Should “Shoot” At The Crisis

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion: (Nouriel Roubini, chairman and co-founder of Roubini Global Economics LLC): “‘I’m very concerned of things getting out of control,’ Roubini said in an interview at Bloomberg’s Dubai office yesterday. ‘You need a huge bazooka of at least 2 trillion euros, but you can’t wait three months. You have to do it in the next few weeks.’

“‘The problem isn’t that Greece is insolvent, but that the fact of having two big elephants in the room – Italy and Spain,’ Roubini said. ‘They’re too big to fail but also too big to save. Even if they are illiquid, but solvent given austerity reform, they’ve already lost market credibility.’

“‘The steps that need to be taken to avoid a dissolvent situation are massive,’ said Roubini….

“‘What is the likelihood of all of these things occurring in a coherent, consistent and realistic way to avoid the mess?’ he asked. ‘I think it’s a low probability because of the political constraints.'” (Source:

“‘I thought a few months ago that the perfect storm would be 2013…. But now, the economic weakness in the US, euro zone and the UK is front loaded. So we’re going to double dip earlier. The climax of it could be 2013, or it could be already earlier.'” (Source:

My Comment: To solve the problem, it is necessary to see the future and what it has in store for us in each of the following scenarios:

  • Delay until the phenomenon itself manifests clearly;
  • Failure to render help;
  • Help.

Even if the future is not clear and there are various opinions, the trend of our advancement has to be understood: Human development leads to its full integration. And although this development towards unity takes place contrary to our personal, state, and national egoism, we must accept this natural evolution as an obligation, as a fact, and make decisions in accordance with it.

Europe united partially as it feared the recurrence of war, rather than desired integration. But today, not only the EU, but the whole world should ponder over the necessity of integration, according to the evolution of human society. We are facing the fact that integration is the next form of humanity and we cannot ignore it.

With each passing day, we are becoming closer, and we must rebuild our relationships at all levels accordingly. Otherwise, the whole humanity will collapse, in all its relationships and institutions. And Europe should set us an example.

Rigidity Without Love

Opinion: (Jürgen Ligi, Estonian Minister of Finance, from “Rigidity is one of the main problems of the European job market, thinks the Minister of Finance Jürgen Ligi.

“‘In general, labor laws are the greatest hindrance to European competitiveness…’

“‘But rigidity is observed in something else as well (apart from legislation). For example, very destructive unions can provoke a way harsher situation than the laws themselves.’

“According to Ligi, Europe must implement a number of reforms, including in labor-management relations and refrain from printing money, the strategy chosen by the US.

“‘Inflation should not be used to come out of the debt crisis.'”

The World Of The Unemployed? No, The World Of The Freed

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from the UN Radio): “Growing unemployment, resulting from the 2008 global economic crisis, is threatening to cause social unrest in a number of countries around the world.

“That’s the warning issued by the International Labour Organization (ILO) on Monday.

“In a new report, the ILO says that globally over 200 million people are without jobs as the slowdown in economic recovery continues.

“If the current trends continue, it adds, it will take at least five years to return employment in advanced economies to the pre-crisis levels.

“Raymond Torres is the Director of the ILO International Institute for Labour Studies: ‘The slowdown is happening in a very fragile social context. We estimate that 40 per cent of the countries for which we have information are facing the risk of increased social unrest.’

“The ILO’s ‘World of Work 2011’ report has been issued on the eve of a summit of the world’s major economies, known as the G20 to be held in Cannes, France later this week.”

My Comment: The world unemployment rate is expected to rise constantly. Nature will force us to come to a society of reasonable consumption, when we produce and consume only what is reasonably necessary.

We will discover that with existing and emerging technology, it is enough for each grown up resident of the Earth to work 1-3 hours a day, and the rest of the time the entire population of the Earth, regardless of age, should constantly study how to live in a new integral society. For this work and studies a person will receive everything necessary for existence. Moreover, studying is mandatory for everyone.

The Makeup Of The Occupy Wall Street Movement

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion: (Yury Rubinsky, Director, Centre for French Studies, the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences, from “The Occupy Wall Street movement is not the beginning of the world proletarian revolution, which Marx dreamed of. On the other hand, they are not bums, riffraff, or anti-social elements. They are not homeless or the proletariat. They are the younger generation of the middle-class.

“As a result of the global economic crisis, in real terms young people earn less than their peers did after the World War II. Many of them are denied their basic benefits package and severance pay. In the United States, the unemployment rate for young people under 25 is 17%, in France – 20%, while in Spain – 46%.

“This is a time bomb. Realizing this, the authorities began to flirt with the ‘occupants’ movement.  …Obama and Soros express their sympathy, but there is no solution!”

My Comment: The government needs to get ready for the waves of layoffs and decide what to do with people who have no work, and for a long term. Until we all learn to live in a new integrally connected world, it will not become better. On the contrary, it will be constantly deteriorating to force us to change, as it happens according to the regular law of evolution.

Common “Flock” Of Humanity

Dr. Michael LaitmanWe all are very different and have different levels of desires, but everybody has their own individuality, a unique role, even though it may appear to be limited. There is no obligation to “reach the stars” or strive towards something lofty. No one is better or worse than others.

When we will reach an integral connection between us, each of us will receive complete knowledge and absolute awareness of the universe. Each of us will become “a free bird” connected with others. Yet no one will rule over us except for the general desire, goal, and plan.

In other words, we become connected with others and at the same time remain absolutely free. We sense a common thought like a bird in a flock. A bird doesn’t sense itself or others. It only feels the common thought: where to turn, how to fly, and what to do next. This commonality becomes its personal asset.

Being a part of a general system, we make decisions together with others, and then we implement our decisions and achieve results. The next decision happens simultaneously in everybody, together with its implementation and result.

In other words, we become one common body. Every person simultaneously manages others and himself. In other words, we reach the level of the upper force that governs humanity, and we are inside this humanity.
