How Can We Enter The Land Of Israel?

laitman_746_03Question: Why are the spies sent to the land of Israel only once?

Answer: Because they already have the impression of how scary it is and now they have to work with this impression. The forty years of wandering in the desert begin at this point because the basis for that already appears in them.

They didn’t have it before that, so why should they wander? If the Creator only wants to confuse or to kill the older generation, He could do it now at one time.

But the point is not for Him to kill the older level but for us to kill it. What does it mean that the older generation dies? It means that our old perspective of the world, of ourselves, of the decisions we should make, and of our understanding of the land of Israel dies in us. We gradually wash the old paradigm away and are included in a new one. This is the only way!

Question: The nation of Israel complain in the desert that they don’t have food and water, but when they get closer to the Promised Land they begin to complain that they cannot enter it. What is the difference?

Answer: If the nation first complained on a corporeal level, now they complain on the level of doubting the Creator’s help. This means that if you annul yourself with regard to the next level, if you close your eyes and follow the Creator, all the obstacles disappear and you enter the land of Israel. But in order to do so you have to suppress your ego and advance above it in faith above reason.

Correction Of Errors Occurs On The Priestly Level

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Torah, “Numbers,” 15:25: The Kohen shall atone on behalf of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was an error, and they have brought their offering as a fire offering to the Lord and their sin offering before the Lord because of their error.

The highest level of human development is called Kohen (priest). In this hierarchy, there is the High Priest who is himself the uppermost level. This characteristic exists in every person and if he attains it, he can judge, give a verdict, and carry out the sentence. In each one of us there exist the nations of the world, the people of Israel, Levites, and priests. If I can correctly upgrade myself internally and locate these corrected egoistic sub-levels within me, then I will understand in what manner I must conduct myself to atone for my errors.

A sin is what I could not evaluate correctly in the previous state, whereas in the present state I can. So it is said: “The kohen shall atone on behalf of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was an error.” This means that it is necessary to rise to the level of the priest and then the error will be corrected.

Question: If we are talking about our world, a court apparently should be found on the level of the priest?

Answer: Yes, but the wisdom of Kabbalah is not talking about our world, because on this level it is impossible to correct anything. The corrections can only be carried out internally, inside of people. So we need to reach a level from which it is possible to correct all the lower levels. The Torah speaks about a person in a single body, so it is impossible to make any comparison between our world and the spiritual world. We can construct our world according to forms similar to spirituality, but first and foremost, the Torah calls upon us to correct ourselves.

The correction doesn’t have to be external, like in our world, but internal. It is possible only if each one of us ascends to the highest level. So the person must himself feel that he has erred and find within himself the priest that will correct it. From this level that symbolizes connection with the Creator, it is possible to correct our previous errors.

When We Open The Book Of Zohar

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: When we start reading The Book of Zohar, why do you often ask: “Do you have something to ask from the Creator?”

Answer: Certainly, otherwise for what reason do you have The Book of Zohar? After all, why do you open it? It is to discover the truth. The truth is revealed only if you awaken the right line, which is love. When you awaken it, you must understand, feel, and discover that in fact there is no love within you, but only hatred. And further, it is such a hatred that you are not able to sit next to your friends.

In order not to remain indifferent to each other, it is necessary to demand that the Creator reveal all of this to us: the love, hatred, mutual cooperation, and the conflicts between us. We lack the third factor, which is turning and demanding! The Creator is a force, a condition, and a system that demands constant turning towards it. As long as this doesn’t exist, you must do a lot of work. There is nothing that can be done about it, since it is impossible to skip over these levels.

The Rescue Of The World – The Nation Of Israel

900Question: How should we relate to all the troubles we encounter?

Answer: We must understand that the reason for the problems is because we were not able to change them into good. All of the problems grow and are manifested in our world, in our senses, only because of our lack of correction, our inability to change the world to the good.

There are not enough people in this world who draw the Light that Reforms by the connection and unity between them and thus turn the evil into good. This is the reason that we are immersed in our nature at the moment, in our egoistic perception.

As it is written, “I have created the evil inclination.” Our world is initially evil. We are all evil, all egoists. Everyone thinks only about himself, and this is the opposite of the way it should be.

If we want to feel good, we must ascend above our nature and begin uniting and connecting. It is actually the wisdom of Kabbalah that performs this change in us. A person who studies the wisdom of Kabbalah is influenced by the Light, the upper force, that makes him better and connects him to others.

He begins to understand who he is and what he was created for, how to change himself in order to feel the upper force, the upper world. It is written, “May you see your world in your lifetime.”

A person develops his soul and begins to live in two worlds simultaneously: in our world and in the spiritual world. Now, he knows what he should do so that it will help him and everyone else.

Only the Jews, the nation of Israel, were given this ability. It is because this nation is the group that Abraham gathered in ancient Babylon that engaged in the correction of the world throughout history until the destruction of the Temple.

Now, too, the nation of Israel must perform this job and our stalling, our lack of knowledge, and lack of desire to know about our role in the world leads to the hatred that all of the other nations feel toward us.
