laitman_272Opinion (Egon von Greyerz, Founder of Matterhorn Asset Management in Switzerland): “Central banks still believe that by printing money they can kick-start their economies and save the financial system. That’s not the case. There is no chance whatsoever to change the outcome of an indebted and bankrupt European economy….

“Even though this will have a short-term effect on markets, people need to understand that this just creates even more debt that will never be repaid. But the ECB is now pushing on a string because, sadly, printing money is the only thing they know how to do. …

“This is what all central banks have done — they’ve trapped themselves in a corner. They have zero or negative interest rates, they are printing more money, and they are buying more assets that they can’t sell and that are worth a lot less than they are paying for them. So every single central bank in the world is bankrupt because they will never, ever get the price for their assets that they paid for them. This is why the financial system will not survive, Eric, and a total global collapse is now in front of us.”

My Comment: The opinion of this man should be reckoned with. But no one reacts. “Central banks still believe that by printing money they can kick-start their economies and save the financial system.”

This will continue until the end because we cannot imagine a system other than an egoistic one because we have no other, altruistic properties. Kabbalists can only:

  1. Gradually implement, where possible, their education
  2. By their unity bring Ohr Makif (Surrounding Light) – the correcting force (the Upper Light).

Indeed, only after people start getting appropriate changes in themselves will they be able to understand what the Kabbalists call for.

The Cloud Of The Creator

Dr. Michael LaitmanMidrash Sefer, “Beshalach”: The Lord commanded Moses to spread his arms above the sea, and a light eastern wind began to blow. In the meantime, the children of Israel went on their way during the whole night, and thus came closer and closer to the seashore.

The Egyptians followed them, but did not succeed in conquering the camp. They shot arrows and threw stones at the Jews, but the cloud of the Creator absorbed everything.

It was the same cloud that usually moved before the children of Israel during the day. That night, instead of disappearing in the dark as it usually did, it moved behind the camp in order to absorb everything that was shot and thrown by the Egyptians. Moreover, the Creator’s angels flew behind the Jews in order to protect them.

There is a law of equivalence of form: If you move toward unity and dissemination, toward developing your spiritual attributes, you are connected to the Creator to some extent in regard to that. Although you are not in contact with Him, there is a connection in the form of a cloud, in the form of help from behind and before. This means that the Surrounding Light operates on you.

A cloud is the Surrounding Light that, on the one hand, is invisible and concealed, but on the other hand, is revealed in its actions like a magician who suddenly appears to hold something in his hand without any evident reason. This means that half of the actions are concealed and half of the actions are revealed. At the same time, the outcome is revealed while the reason is beyond the Machsom (barrier).

Carriers Of The Force Of Unity

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why is it impossible to find replacements for the thousand of Jews who are in key positions in industry and finance in France, by putting in their place smart, gifted French people?

Answer: The Jews are carriers of the force of unity, unification. They do not just develop something locally and in isolation from the rest, but links are built and everything is connected between themselves. They are like explorers who discover new lands. All these discoveries were made by the Jews because they felt oppressed in Spain and Portugal. For this reason Columbus discovered America, due to the desire to break away.

The Jews have this power to break through because it is the force of Bina, the desire to bestow, called Galgalta ve-Eynaim. The word “Jew ” (Yehudi) comes from the word “unity” (Yichud). They make up only a tiny part of humanity, but they are located at the top, like a thin layer of cream. The force of bestowal is concentrated within it, and therefore, their participation brings significant contribution.

Suffice it to recall history. Two thousand years ago, in the days of the Temple, Israel was a prosperous state with high culture and education and a developed infrastructure and lifestyle. It gave all of humanity the foundation for culture, education, and the basis for its whole development. All this came from the people of Israel, and this remained within its nature.

So That The Sea Will Retreat To The Sides

laitman_232_07The Midrash “BeShalach”: The sea will retreat to the sides when it sees the children of Israel before it, carrying the coffin of Joseph. Just as he fled from the wife of Potiphar, so will the sea retreat for his descendents.

Question: Why does the sea have to retreat to the sides?

Answer: Since Joseph unites everyone. Joseph is Yesod, the point where all of a person’s attributes connect for the sake of the Creator. It is actually Yesod that creates an inclusive chunk of attributes that are totally opposite.

“To carry Joseph before the children of Israel” means to advance in complete unity among them. The sea symbolizes Din, the force that is opposite from unity, that is opposite from life. If you walk on it with the point of unity, like with a battering ram, the sea will retreat to the sides.

Not Living for One’s Own Sake

laitman_236_01The Midrash “BeShalach”: As soon as the children of Israel saw that the Egyptian army chased them closely and when they saw that there was no salvation, they started praying in their hearts and lifted their voices to the Creator begging Him for help.

In the camp of the children of Israel, there was fear.

“The fear” the previous excerpt talks about is a fright of staying in the intention “for one’s own sake.” During the hardest times, we don’t think about the Creator or our surroundings but only about ourselves.

It’s as if we are squeezed on all sides in our desires and thoughts, intentions and actions are directed inward. Thus, we have no grounds to demand the property of bestowal.

However, one is afraid to stay in this state and live only for one’s own sake since one has already tried serving the Creator and wants to retain this condition.

Good Luck Creates Fate

laitman_760_2Question: What is the relationship and what is the difference between luck and fate?

Answer: Good luck creates fate. With the help of actions between us we can influence the mind that controls our entire life, which is called the Rosh (head) of the world of Atzilut.

From there, forces descend to us, but we can decide how they will descend and in what way will affect us. Then we get their influence in a good, beautiful form; we are ready for it. And thus the influence of these forces is kind.

These forces are called the “signs of fortune” or “drops of luck” (“Mazalot” – from the word “Nozel“/”drain”), since it doesn’t flow, but drops fall down, and there are gaps between them, similar to beats of a pulse.

The drops of luck descend to us and every moment organize how we can move towards the goal. Their action is goal-oriented. If I prepare myself in advance for the same purpose, then each drop’s action coincides with my direction, and then I perceive it as a good, pleasant influence—if I am ready for it.

The wisdom of Kabbalah explains what I have to be to get these drops of luck in the most beautiful form and advance with them as much as possible. Therefore, Kabbalah is called the science of receiving, from the Hebrew word “Lekabel” – “to receive.”

Let’s say I am in the car and a force is pushing me forward. If my steering wheel is turned the other way, the car will veer across the highway and no one knows what it will collide with. If beforehand, all my “wheels,” desires, look to the future, I aim in the right direction, then every time a drop of luck that comes to me, it acts for my good.

The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us to go with the wind, not against it. Moreover, we can draw these “signs of good luck” to ourselves, to attract them with a greater force and greater frequency. We can really “embrace” the upper force that comes to us and strengthen its action. Then the pulses of this force will be more frequent and each of them will be more powerful in its effect.

In this way I shorten my path, which I am constantly in some situations in my life, feeling the pressure and making corrections, and quickly reach the pre-determined goal that I cannot change. But I reach it in a good, kind, pleasant, and short way, and this goal is my perfection and eternity.

Thus, good luck creates my fate, that is, from the “signs of luck,” the pulsations of this force, from their influence on me, I create my fate. Fate is my entire path.
