We Won’t Need Many Words

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: The convention “A Flame in the Desert” seems to be closing the circle that the first convention in the desert started about a year ago. We feel that the previous phase is ending and there are new opportunities before us for the emotional connection among us. What will our global group look like after its spiritual birth when we succeed in attaining connection?

Answer: I don’t think that our external form will change that much, and the inner connection cannot be described in words. There will be such a connection among us that you will constantly feel as if your child is away from you, the physical distance separates you, but you know and feel him so well that his image has become a part of you and is living in you; this is how we will all feel one another.

We won’t need to talk much since we will understand each other’s feelings internally by adhesion. There will be few words and the clarifications will be short and simpler. It is as if we are eating one salad, and I say that there isn’t enough salt and you already understand that when I say half of a word. After all, you are tasting the same dish, and feel the same reality.

We won’t need endless words and powerful media in order to create the connection between us like we do today when we don’t feel connected. We will correspond, but in a very short and to the point manner since we will understand what each one feels anyway. We will become “one man in one heart.”

If The Intention Is Right, The Desire Doesn’t Need To Be Checked

Dr. Michael LaitmanYou do not need to regret and worry about the thoughts and feelings that are rapidly changing in our minds and hearts. It is just the form clothed in matter, and let it clothe! What is important is what we seek. That is, we need to change and continue to improve our intentions rather than fighting with the thoughts and desires themselves.

If the intentions are correct, then the thoughts and desires don’t need to be checked. But we usually eat ourselves up for our thoughts and feel sorry for why we thought these things, why such thoughts and desires suddenly came to us in relation to ourselves and others, and we blame ourselves for the past. But they are totally empty, useless trifles. The only useful thing to do is to change the intention: whom do I intend to do good to—myself or the Creator?

Therefore it is vital to minimize blaming oneself. And it’s that easy; the upper Light keeps working on us, knocking us off the path. But we must keep returning to the correct intention, as it is written: “Israel, the Torah, and the Creator are one.”

This is how you maintain where the intention is aimed. But the action, thought, or desire doesn’t need your attention; on the contrary, rise above them as if you don’t check what your actions, desires, and thoughts currently are at all. Just make sure that they are aimed away from you, through the group, toward connecting with it, so that with the help of Light that Reforms you achieve adhesion with the Creator and delight Him by doing so.

If a person constantly directs and aims himself in this direction, which is called the intention, then all these words: “I,” “through the group,” “in connection with the group,” “the Light that Reforms,” and “revealing the Creator to bestow pleasure to Him” start forming a certain sensation in the person, a condition formed by this one sentence.

At that point, everything gets easier. Although the hardening of the heart still occurs afterward, as well in order to make a person work at a greater depth, with higher quality concepts, he is already walking in the right direction. This means don’t focus on your thoughts because we are not free there; they are dictated to us by our selfish heart. Think only about your intention.

The Women’s Convention: Everybody Is Invited

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Can I invite women to the convention who are new to the science of Kabbalah, who are not familiar, but are interested?

Answer: I think that there is a place for everyone at this convention. After all, there are no coincidences, and if a woman suddenly decides to attend our convention, then firstly, she has been sent from Above, and secondly, there is some precondition that namely she was brought to us. That’s why we don’t make any restrictions; anyone should be allowed to attend.

Mutual Guarantee: Merging With Everyone

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What is mutual guarantee between women? Is it expressed in external actions?

Answer: The term mutual guarantee (“Arvut” in Hebrew) originates from the word “Learvev” (to mix). That is, mutual guarantee is such a mixture of opposite properties that they are indistinguishable from each other. In other words, people who want to be connected, and finding completely opposite qualities in themselves, interconnect with each other, “enter” each other: I am in him, and he is in me, and we exactly fit each other.

Everything in nature is created in this way. For example, a bee that sits on a wild flower is built exactly according to its form so that it can enter the flower without damaging it, gather all the pollen, and carry it to another plant. Everything is created precisely. Only Nature, the Creator, could invent in this way.

We are made in the same way: Male and female parts enter each other and interact ideally, unite, and complement each other.

Mutual guarantee is such mutual care, it is when I make a commitment to be everything for you, and you do so for me, that is, everything for everyone, because this mutual contact is necessary for each of us. By understanding and recognizing this movement towards each other, we thus enter into mutual guarantee.

The Ideal Women’s Unity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What is women’s unity? What is its ideal form?

Answer: The ideal form of women’s unity is that you will feel not yourself but everyone as one unified woman, a single image, a single desire. This desire will be above your body and your individual calculations, above various misunderstandings and mutual rejection.

When for the sake of the goal you are able to rise above yourself and create the image of a unified woman, it will be ideal because it will be based on disregard for egoism.

Begin to rise a bit above your current egoism, above all sorts of minor problems, petty earthly nonsense, and even if it’s not yet an ideal woman, you will get an ideal little girl.

Then, egoism will grow, women’s troublesome problems will emerge, and you will rise above them, becoming aware that all this is given to you on purpose to create the image of a more mature ideal woman. Do not think that it will be easy. The entire work is based on this: to unite above all possible rejections.

The Women’s Convention: Waiting For Spiritual Breakthrough

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What role do we play at the women’s convention: Bina or Malchut, preparing a place where the men can bring their unity or requiring from them the “catch” for realization?

Answer: Through your unity at this convention you prepare a very serious desire, which you should then give to the men in the few days left before their convention.

We are waiting three days before the men’s convention, so you could transfer the men your charge, your spirit, so that they come to the congress in a way I have never seen them before.

They should be full of responsibility, intensity, and determination to do everything so that, having taken your desires, your intentions, and your strength, they are able to unite with each other.

A woman pushes a man on explorations and to achievements. Make it so that I feel in the men who come to our convention and who are around the world that they have received this charge from you, and that you push them, lead them forward, and support them; You stand behind them, guide them, and do not let go. They must feel that!

You need to accumulate so much power in yourself that it would make men rise above themselves and connect with your desire, general Hissaron. And then at the men’s convention, not the next one, but at this men’s convention, the unification of the united women’s desire takes place with the help of men’s unity.

Question: How will the men understand and feel this, by our burning eyes …?

Answer: You have to tell them about this, guide them in every way, just as you do at home. Sometimes you can do it even without words, which works even more because a woman’s silence is perceived by men much more effectively. So, try it. Perhaps, a couple words could be enough, but the man should feel that you really expect spiritual breakthrough from him.
