There Is No Prophet In His City

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Is it worthwhile for me to talk about what we are doing with integral education at my workplace?

Answer: No, at work, it is better not to engage in dissemination activities. It is better that some stranger come to your workplace, for example, your friend from the group, that nobody knows this is linked to you, that you don’t have any relationship to this.

There is a saying: “There is no prophet in his own country.” Usually if a person portrays himself at work as an expert in any area not related to their profession, then as a general rule, he isn’t taken seriously: “We know him. He grew up with us, we were in the same kindergarten, he went to school with us”; that is,  you already don’t have the relationship to be a teacher.

“There is no prophet in his own country.” A prophet must come from another place.
From the Stockholm Convention “Joy In Unity” 8/31/13, Lesson 4

  1. Are all Kabbalah teachings the same? Because when I check out vidoes on youtube concerning what Dr. Laitman has to say, there are others speaking on the subject of kabbalah.
