Compulsory Studies For All

laitman_600_02In the News (from World Crisis): “Today even minimal wages which should theoretically suffice in order to live a modest life doesn’t allow a person to break the poverty circle. Minimum wages for a full time job, 40 hours a week, doesn’t allow a person to cross the poverty line.”

“Democrats seek to raise the minimum wage… . Republicans argue that this has would have a negative effect, because it would lead to a reduction in the number of jobs and unemployment – the load is distributed among the workers, who did not get fired.

“Regardless of who is right in this situation, there is one indisputable fact: Today, a lot of families depend on government assistance. In other words, the minimum wage in working full-time is not enough to cross the poverty line.

“Indeed, a new study of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development shows that in 21 of 26 states, which set the minimum wage, work, working 40 hours a week is not adequate for the normal means of supporting one’s family. Of the 34 countries belonging to the OECD, minimum wage does not allow coping with poverty. In Spain, you need to work more 72 hours a week to avoid poverty. It turned out that this is the norm, not the exception.”

My Comment: The world must abandon the old approach to work, wages, pension, and other social services. We have to start relating to society as to one whole, and in any case, to provide all the necessary conditions for existence outside the principle “who does not work does not eat.”

It is necessary to link the receipt of benefits to participating in a course of the wisdom of connection. Participating in the course will be considered everyone’s obligatory job.

As for people who work in order to provide society’s needs, society will choose specific people for these jobs. We have to disconnect the receiving benefits from work and to tie it to the a person’s participation in a course of the wisdom of connection.

The Twelve Tribes Of The Common Soul

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Light emanates from the East, for there the sun rises. From there comes the eastern wind, the most harmful of all winds. From the west comes snow, hail, heat, frost, and heavy rains.

The South, a source of blessing of dew and rain. is the source of the blessed dew and rain. From the North is sent “darkness” and malicious forces.

(The Torah, “Bamidbar”)

The location of the banners of the camps of the Jews corresponds to the four sides of the Light.

A unified system called the common soul consists of twelve parts (the twelve tribes) that relate to and are connected with each other in accordance with the four sides of the world that signify the four parts – Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin and Malchut.

And the banners must stand against each other:

Bina – Hochma

Malchut – Zeir Anpin

Each part consists of 3 lines, a total of 12 parts (12 tribes). Their location represents the pairing of the vessel of the common soul.

The Torah specifies which banner they have to be under. The banner symbolizes the private purpose of each camp that has its own characteristics and properties. Therefore, the one common goal is expressed in them in a slightly different focus, from a different angle.

As an example, a human body consists of various organs. Each in their own way senses the body’s movements, supports, etc. In the same way, thanks to the variety of properties and the way they connect among each other, the properties of the general force, the Creator are shown.

The property of bestowal shows up as a result of huge egoistic differences. Bestowal is as absolute like a mother’s love: Do whatever you want; I still love you.

Soul—One For All?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Does each person have a soul of his or her own or is there one common soul for all?

Answer: In fact, there is only one common soul that is shared by everyone. Each person perceives a different angle, from his or her part of this great soul. It is ready to be perceived by all of us.

The Creator made one desire to enjoy, as it is written: “I created the evil inclination.” And we must act together to correct all this evil. In any case, we all are bound together as one body of integral as one man with one heart. Therefore, we will correct it all together will to receive together and reach a state that is called “soul.”

The Hierarchy Of The Collective Soul

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Who in the spiritual hierarchy can obtain the closest proximity to the property of bestowal?

Answer: Spirituality is the world of forces. Everything there is about forces.

The closest to the property of bestowal are Cohens (priests) who represent the most internal part of the general soul; then come Levites who gather around the Cohens, and then the people of Israel follows.

Erev Rav (the mixed multitude) is behind the Cloud of Glory (the Surrounding Light). Even though they make all efforts to grab as much as they can for their own sake, they cannot get inside it because they do not accept the property of bestowal, to work for the Creator’s sake, for the benefit of others.

This is a quantitative and qualitative balance of forces in a single system called “the common soul.”

French Attempt To Combat Anti-Semitism And Racism

Laitman_727In the News (from “France will spend 100 million Euros in a fight against racism and anti-Semitism. This was announced by Prime Minister Manuel Valls. ‘Racism, anti-Semitism, hatred towards Muslims, foreigners and homophobia are increasing unimaginably,’ he said.

“One of the proposals to combat these phenomena is to make racism and anti-Semitism as an aggravating circumstance of any crime or offense.

“Other proposals relate primarily to the Internet – through the creation of a state body that will monitor the language of hatred, as well as specific educational activities in schools.”

My Comment: The manifestation of hatred will force a struggle against this phenomenon, but to no avail. Because the problem is not in the eradication of hatred; it cannot be eliminated, but in building a level of respect and unity above it towards real love, according to the principle, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” “Love covers all transgressions.”

Evil will not disappear; rather overcoming it is done through even greater connection. We build such an attitude gradually, together, through the Upper Light, the Surrounding Light. The wisdom of Kabbalah explains how this will be realized. All the other attempts will fail.
