The Creator As The Common Denominator

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We need to connect in an inner form, in our desires. But how can I approach the desire of the friend?

Answer: For you, your inclination to the Creator is enough. Only with this inclination, without trying to dig deeper, do you connect. Both of you do not understand this desire that the Creator “planted” in each of you. But precisely this desire in the friend, and only it, is important for you. This is a subtle inclination from the refinement of the soul. You love the friend’s spiritual spark, his inclination to the Creator. His character and his customs are not important to you; it is only the Creator who connects you, because “in Him our heart will rejoice.” It is in Him. You want to meet in the Creator.

The other desires are connected in a different way; they remain in you and simply are searching for fulfillment together. But practically this is not unity with the other, but it is taking advantage of the other.

And we on the other hand, do not connect only between us. Light comes to us that bestows upon our desires, connects us, and dwells in us, in our connection. And then all of us together are glad that we gave the Creator the possibility and the ability to be revealed.

Therefore, for you, it is enough for you to have the inclination for the truth, for the Creator, for the goal. You yourself still do not know where you are going to, but the yearning exists already, and you need to always raise and care for it. How? By connecting with the friends. As a result of it, enough yearning will appear in you that the Light will correct you, will connect to a big single desire that in it you will reveal the Creator and will rejoice in it.

From day to day it will be clearer to you how to use all kinds of means in order to prepare yourself for the new state. You will not succeed in understanding it in advance, and you don’t need to demand understanding but the force of bestowal in “above reason.” Precisely by this yearning for bestowal above reason,” the knowledge will be revealed you and you will know.

Not For The Ego = Above Reason

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We need to be directed by what we see; we need to use our senses, our knowledge, our reason. And on the other hand, there is the principle of “above reason,” and through it, the wisdom of Kabbalah expands the research of how one needs to correctly pass from their own understanding to rise above reason.

Answer: The whole upper world exists above our current knowledge, meaning, above the ego. In this manner, “above reason” symbolizes not for the ego.

By that, we are covering the gap between the levels. By revealing the new network of connection between all, we see it as the foundation of all the laws of nature. It is as if nature lies on this network, and we begin to observe its parts in fields, in mechanisms, that activate people. We are penetrating through such layers, which in comparison to them, the atom seems like a coarse thing. The intentions are revealed before us. The forces that precede the matter, that are activating the atoms, the waves, the light waves.

In our perception, we are passing closer to the beginning and we see everything in a new intention, in Ohr Hozer, in Ohr Hassadim, above our current knowledge.

The “Stony Heart” In Terms Of Integrality

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How can we describe the Kabbalistic term “Lev ha Even” (the stony heart) in terms of integrality?

Answer:Lev ha Even” is the primordial part of egoism, which we cannot correct in any way and on which our entire egoism is based. It is the point of creation of desire. And everything else that has been built over it is brought forth by the Light that acts on this point.

Question: Is it possible to give us an example of “Lev ha Even” so we could sense it?

Answer: “Lev ha Even” is such a rejection, such a hate toward the connection with others, which I cannot overcome. I simply have to put it aside, to camouflage it in some way, to conceal it, in order to work with the rest of the lighter egoistic desires in connection with others.

After I correct all of my egoistic desires that used to be against the connection with others, this part is corrected automatically because it is not supposed to be corrected by me. This part appeared within me as a drop of semen from which I was created; it is being corrected not by me, but rather by the combination of correct forces that I create.

It’s Impossible To Get Far On Bare Enthusiasm

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: In the course of history there were plenty of attempts to create communes. Why didn’t nature respond and help them?

Answer: This is because while doing this we didn’t educate people. Everything was built exclusively by enthusiasts. Maybe these attempts were successful for some time, but eventually they fell apart because we didn’t engage in integral education of people.

We should have developed a person by showing him where his freedom of will lies. This freedom is in attaining homeostasis with nature, balance with others and with nature, so that he would fit into nature’s most general law, the law of balance.

All of nature is directed toward fulfilling this law. We see what takes place in all of nature’s parts. All of nature’s actions pursue a single goal: to attain balance and peace. Even enormous cataclysms, explosions, and different activities taking place are still nature’s strive toward peace and balance. After all, peace and balance within a human society is a law of similarity to nature, integration with it.

Therefore, the most important thing is the correct education, and nothing can be done without it. People have to understand this.

Comment: But for a certain period there was enthusiasm.

Answer: This was bare enthusiasm, built on simple impulse of motivation toward this and nothing more. Meanwhile, people must be educated and taught to unite! This is a whole science.

For this reason a person receives qualities from nature that allow him to educate and to pull himself forward. Nature will respond to our desire to grow in the same way it develops a small child. It is the same exact system. We will gradually teach ourselves and mother-nature will encourage us.
