Man And Woman: Unity Of Opposites

laitman_571_01Question: The term “created being” is genderless (neither male nor female), but is the created being a man or a woman?

Answer: In fact, the created being is a female because the Creator created a desire. The force, the Light, that created this desire is male.

The Creator is the masculine part and the created being—its feminine part. One part cannot operate without the other. As a result, there are male and female. After all, it is impossible for the Light to be without a vessel and for the vessel to be without the Light, or a plus without minus and minus without the plus. Therefore, everything is based on the union of opposites that is the subject of creation.

The created being initially consists of a male part, which then created the female part, which means that the Light created the desire and then the desire changes itself to resemble the Light. The essence of a man and a woman in our world is to attain their spiritual root and to reside there in the connection between them according to spiritual laws. Then they attain a perfect and eternal state of spiritual flight. This is their purpose in this world.

Question: What is the fundamental difference between them?

Answer: The difference between them is absolute. In our world, we don’t feel how opposite they are from one another. In fact there is nothing more opposite and contrasting than a man and a woman in their spiritual root.

It is actually thanks to the difference over which they must connect into one whole. There is nothing in each of them that the other doesn’t complement since spiritually they can only exist in mutual complement.

I am speaking from the perspective of nature, from a Kabbalistic perspective. I’m not interested in feminist views. This isn’t about psychology or philosophy or some respectable or indecent ideas or views. This is totally irrelevant and has nothing to do with the framework we operate in.

I recognize the wisdom of Kabbalah, which tells us about the created being; how it was created, how it developed, how he was divided into two opposite parts, and how the two parts that stem from one root first draw away from one another and then reconnect and complement one another. This are the male and female parts.

We can attribute very little of what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us to a man and woman in our world because we are very far from resembling the spiritual attributes and objects. This means that we are neither men nor women in the spiritual sense, but something in the middle, ambiguous and unfinished. We have to go through the whole evolutionary process, then we will realize how we can complement one another and become a single perfect whole. This means to become similar to the Creator.

New Life 675 – Science And The Investigation Of Life


New Life 675 – Science and the Investigation of Life
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Science developed thanks to the human desire to improve our lives and its ability to discover knowledge, but the ego, our desire, was not big enough for that yet. Knowledge of the higher power, the operating system of our world, would order our emotions and intellect for us.

We find all kinds of phenomena and laws in nature, but we have not become aware of the force that controls us; the higher knowledge opens only when we are ready for it. Today even Aristotle would not comprehend what the children of our day already understand; there is something in life they need to know and achieve.

To reach new knowledge, we have to become a new people, open to the world, to see it integrally and stop seeing everything from a narrow point of view, individually, only for our own benefit. The essential change is to see the world as a single general system and this depends on the development of general love for all. This is not talking about as we know it, in which I enjoy something and so I love it; that is egoistic love, but  this love is feeling that everyone and me together feel eternity, wholeness, and a divine radiance. There is no better feeling than that.

The reason for living and why everything exists is revealed to a person; therefore he moves into living in a new, whole and eternal reality. The great secret of life is that there truly is an entry into another life, and the present life is only a preparation for approaching it.

New Life 674 – Information Is Power


New Life 674 – Information Is Power
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

We need information about the world and ourselves, and further information to help us realize what know. When we know that something is bad for us, like smoking for example, we have a desire that prevents us from fulfilling it.

The wisdom of Kabbalah gives a person information about the system that manages him and the possibility of integrating in it, but this upper knowledge opens up to a person provided he learns to control his evil inclination, his heart.

All human knowledge accumulated until now has not led us to a life of happiness, but to a deadlock and collapse of the system, and everything we produce eventually turns against us. We live in constant competition and war with one another, subject to pressure and tension, until we finally ask ourselves: Am I glad? Am I happy? What am I living for anyway? We have no answers and we become depressed.

We lack vision of where we can go and how to open ourselves to this perspective for the future. Without this, we have no energy for all the trouble and pressures of life. In fact, a person wants to feel that timeless and eternal life depends on acquiring the knowledge on the operating system of the world, on opening horizons.
