How Can We Transcend The Machsom (Barrier)?

laitman_281_02Question: I am a writer (I have been told that I am even widely read). I have created dozens of people who live in another world, which is often more real than the lives of many people in this world. When I write, I am everywhere but not inside my body.

I have made hundreds of thousands of people cry and laugh, not thinking about my fame and my profit when I do it. I don’t think about that when I write but only before and after.

It seemed that could resemble the Creator! But my literary work didn’t help me attain spirituality. I have not transcended the Machsom yet, and there is nothing I would like more.

Answer: My advice to you is the same advice I give everyone: start getting used to and perceiving the method. Don’t rush and try to skip over steps since you may miss something and cease to understand and to relate everything to one system. I suggest that you come and visit us in one of our conventions.

Offering Incense

Laitman_509The Torah, “Numbers,” 16:4 – 16:7: And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face. And he spoke unto Korah and unto all his company, saying: “In the morning the LORD will show who are His, and who is holy, and will cause him to come near unto Him; even him whom He may choose will He cause to come near unto Him.

“This do: take you censors, Korah, and all his company; and put fire therein, and put incense upon them before the LORD to-morrow; and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he shall be holy; ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.”

The incense is the Returning Light, a vessel (corrected desires), which everyone can offer as the corrected state in the right form of the soul. A person offers it in order to contact the Creator, the upper force of love and bestowal, and to check whether he is connected to Him, in resembling Him and in an equivalence of form.

This is bestowal, raising the desire, raising MAN. Such an attribute inside us can come in contact with the Creator, but at the same time, we have to give up all the egoistic demands and requests and totally focus on what is called incense.

The incense represents a state in which nothing is left of the dried plants, for example, except the smell. This means that nothing is left of a person, and everything rises to the Creator.

When he offers it by himself, he determines his fate if he acts correctly. But if he doesn’t, his current level dies and instead the next level is required. Then what is called “and the staff of Aaron shall bloom” may occur.

Are There Mantras In The Wisdom Of Kabbalah?

Laitman_511_01Question: I visited one of your groups in Russia and asked: “What is your practical work?” It turns out that they have been listening to your lectures for years trying to become altruists.

One may think that other wisdoms don’t teach people to be altruists and to keep the rule of “love thy friend as thyself.” Some of the students in that group have been studying for more than five years, yet they have no idea what the practical work is. I am not immortal and I don’t want to waste my time on eternal theory. Since I have engaged in different mantras for 15 years I was surprised to find out that your teaching is only theoretical.

Every mantra has its special effect, but the problem is that all the mantras are disconnected and there is no clear sequence from the first to the last.

Answer: There are no mantras in the wisdom of Kabbalah. The practical work is connection and unity where the general force that governs the world, the Creator, is revealed. There is no mysticism, no promises, and no mutual obligations. The choice is yours! If the beginning of the soul is revealed in you, the point in the heart, you will be attracted by the wisdom of Kabbalah and you will feel that it offers you an opportunity to attain the meaning of life.

“The Current Crisis Won’t Be Corrected Without A War”

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News ( “Many experts compare the current economic crisis to the crisis of 2008-2009: the fact that coping with it was managed. But it is not so simple. ‘Speaking economically, but in 2008 the Americans managed to get the world to buy its crisis. But this year, the world will not be able to buy the US crisis,’ …

“The main thing is that the current crisis cannot be fixed without a war, and this is very bad. The methods that were used for the elimination of the 2008 crisis, are simply not working. They were not enough. This applies not only to Western countries, but also to us. [Russsia] …

“Even though the United States has gradually begun to emerge from the crisis, this movement is only for the upper third of the population, while the poorest third of the population is deteriorating into even greater poverty. …

“The simplest solution, which the masters of life generally use when they don’t succeed in overcoming a crisis, is war. The war increases credit. The Americans have often tried to use this, but recent wars have not helped them. A unipolar world cannot bring peace to humanity and an unstable system will push us closer and closer to global war”.

My Comment: I agree that the present crisis is impossible to correct without war! Its nature is not economic nor demographic, meaning that it is not within the societal structures that were created by humanity, but within human nature itself. The required war is only against our egoistic nature, as it is the origin of all of our problems.

So, the wisdom of Kabbalah has been revealed, which is the method for war with the universal ego. Specifically, we must begin this anti-egoistic world war as quickly as possible! And the moment this war begins, we will enter into a state of peace, a state of a higher new world!

Bringing The World To Balance

laitman_938_03Question: Suppose that I come to people to find out what they desire, but they don’t want anything except a lower mortgage rate. What should I think about and what should I ask so that, when I meet with them, they would want to discover the Creator?

Answer: The idea is not about a low mortgage rate. People want their lives to work out because life is pressuring them from all sides. They want a healthier and better existence for themselves, for their relatives, for the people, for the nation, and for the entire world.

So, you need to think about how to bring the world into balance so that every person, in whatever situation in which he may be, will be able to find this point.

When you wake up in the morning, you should connect with the group immediately, and then all of our events, all of our activities will be successful.

I am giving you an intention about how to go through the 24 hours of the day. If everything that you think about and want begins to move through the group, then you will be advancing toward a state of balance and harmony, and then everything will be normal. If it is not normal, this is a sign that you still haven’t reached balance and are at a point that is taking you out of it. It is possible to find balance only in the center of the group!

So, it is necessary to aim toward this from the beginning of the morning and hold onto this intention no matter what happens. We will solve everything this way at work, in your personal life, in the family, and everywhere. Otherwise, all your best desires, activities and thoughts will lead you further and further away from the goal.
