Soros Is Not Our Brother

400Question: The human rights organization Human Rights Watch is supported by the well-known Jewish philanthropist George Soros who appealed to commercial companies and banks demanding they cease any cooperation with the Israeli settlements and occupied territories, including the Jewish quarters in East Jerusalem.

It is hard enough that the EU wants to neutralize us and to realize that we are not liked, and then Soros also comes along.

Answer: It is no secret that Jews are behind anti-Israeli movements, and we cannot ignore that. Jews once again are leading themselves to annihilation and believe that their actions are right.

200 years ago, before the destruction of the Second Temple, we were on a spiritual level and lived in connection between us according to the principle of “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Things changed after the destruction of the Second Temple, and we fell from that level to the level of unfounded hatred.

Since then we have been in a state called exile. Exile refers to the fall from the high level we were on to a level of ordinary relations in this world, and here we are the worst. When we are under great pressure, we help one another because the instinct of survival in a pack switches on. But when we don’t feel the threat of a war and one of us climbs to the top, he suffocates the others even more. There is no need for anti-Semites—take a Jew like Soros, for example, who does his job faithfully.

Since the relations between us have been inverted and unfounded hatred replaced love, we don’t treat each other like all other nations treat each other. We don’t love; we reject one another and are ready to give, sell, dispose of, and disconnect from one another. This results from undergoing the destruction,  and it is the state we are in today. It is called the destruction of the Second Temple, our destruction.

The wisdom of Kabbalah tells us about our history and about the love that is gone and the revelation of hatred. So, Soros, the advisors of president Obama, and other Jews in leading positions in Europe and the US call for boycotting Israel and lead the anti-Semitic attacks on our nation.

Therefore, I don’t see them as our brothers. We were brothers before the destruction of the Second Temple, and since then we hate each other until this very day. We must accept that fact, even though we don’t understand it. We are only brothers in times of trouble because we are together under pressure. Only when we begin to connect will we become brothers again, and then will cancel the external hatred aimed at us.

Question: What will push us to connect and unite?

Answer: There are two ways: the immense sufferings that we undergo in order to change our attitude toward one another and thus realize what we must do for ourselves and for the world or through the path that the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us about, which is an internal, moral revolution we must undergo in order to unite in a peaceful manner.

We have a method of spiritual connection called the wisdom of Kabbalah, and this is the reason that this wisdom is revealed today. We must implement it and disseminate it all over the world, as it is written, “And you shall keep [them] and do [them], for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the eyes of the peoples,” and we mustn’t conceal it.

Turkey – Otherwise The Refugees Will Come To You

Laitman_727Comment: Turkey is demanding an additional allocation of around three billion dollars from the European Union in exchange for stopping the flow of immigrants into Europe.

Answer: It is unreasonable for the government of Turkey to agree to stop the stream of immigrants otherwise Turkey would become like Europe.

Question: Do you suppose that the government of Turkey will take the money and still release the refugees?

Answer: The Turks will have no choice but to apologize and allow the refugees to pass since immense masses of refugees are gathering in Turkey who are breaking through and penetrating into Europe through every breach in the border, and there are many. It is not clear why Turkey would be willing to take upon such pressure and risk in exchange for only three billion dollars; after all, taking care of the refugees requires a much more.

Comment: It seems that there is no way out of the situation. What is your prediction in connection with this?

Answer: I have a very clear prediction for humanity. The journey of the immigrants from the depths of the Muslim world into the depths of European civilization is a historic process the like of which has never existed in any of the previous conquests and migrations of people in all times.

A new era is beginning in the history of humanity. Humanity is undergoing very serious changes, like the final contractions before birth, like a fetus whose time comes to be born and begins to squirm, to strike with its legs and hands at the uterus of its mother, and finally turns with its head below to be born into the atmosphere of the world. That is also how humanity, all the old paradigms, reasons, theories, methods, and cultures as a whole will be overturned. And then humanity will be reborn on the next level of development. This birth is approaching; we are beginning to enter into the prenatal stage. Ahead of us are very serious and yet very interesting times.

Question: What is supposed to be born?

Answer: It is a new humanity, a united world, people who are connected together, who understand that they belong to a single body, to a single system, to a single soul, which is called “Adam.”

The Real Meaning Of The Ancient Prophecies

laitman_933Question: The prophet Jeremiah compared the eternal existence of the people of Israel to the lawfulness of the sun and the moon in the description of their service to the Creator. What is the meaning of this in regard to the people of Israel of today?

Answer: As long as we don’t understand the interpretations of the original writings of the Kabbalists, it is up to us to relate to them only practically.

The Jewish people are composed of a group of people united by a common condition of existence: mutual approach, combined into one single organism. Otherwise it does not exist. This is what the prophet Jeremiah meant.

The prophets were Kabbalists found on a particular level of spiritual development. All of their words are expressed in allegorical language, and so with words like “sun,” “moon,” etc. the meaning is not about physical objects but internal forces of nature.

What Are Kabbalah Books About?

laitman_527_04Question: Are Kabbalah books written according to the Jewish tradition?

Answer: Kabbalah books have nothing to do with any tradition. They explain how to treat other people and how to build a relationship between this world and the highest world, to discover the secret parts of the universe—all the other worlds that are around us and govern us.

Then we will be able to manage our lives in the reverse order. At the same time, we will reach beyond the physical limits of our short lives, our small forces, and can see through time.

There is no need to tie the wisdom of Kabbalah to any tradition; a Kabbalist can be Indian, Arab, Norwegian, or from South America—no matter who. It does not say anything about earthly rules except one: bringing people together into one integral whole just like all of nature.

The Current Situation Of The World Economy

 Opinion (from “Money can be transferred from pocket to pocket, but this won’t produce what’s most important ‑ goods that ensure normal human existence. And goods are formed by actual production.

“The debt has reached such a scale that no profit of the world’s real sector can maintain the stability of the inflated debt market. But instead of bankrupting nonviable subjects and limiting the production of new debt, the blow is being made on the real sector.

“Today everyone is screaming about the fall of oil prices. But it is not about oil. Over the last year the combined index of all raw materials fell by 34%. The Baltic Dry Index, which assesses the price of moving the major raw materials by sea, has fallen three years in a row, dropping almost six-fold.

“Real manufacturing is shrinking, followed by a decrease in international trade. All the idle money gets accumulated in the banks, which creates the danger of hovering inflation.

“The fight for money now unfolds between the states: the US and Europe. The flow of money from Europe to the United States should have been reflected in the drop of the value of the euro in relation to the dollar, but Europe does not wish to become a sacrificial lamb to postpone the fall of the US, and prefers to hole up in its own debt market, not American.

“It would seem that the emission could solve the problem: printing more dollars or euros and thereby maintaining the seeming stability. However, any country that risks starting emission first in its own interests without considering the interests of its ‘partners’ risks to be the first to fall into the spin of hyperinflation.

“But the US are capable of influencing the problem of the refugees: the New Year events in Cologne are possibly a rehearsal, a prelude to chaos that may transpire in Europe.

“We are going to witness a hot spring in Europe against the politics of the official authorities. As well as the clashes with the refugees who may turn out to be much more organized than it appears today. One can guess what will happen with European finances.”

Comment: Nevertheless, the way out of the situation is possible, but on a completely different plane—by directing the social order toward similarity to the unified system of nature. After all, by being opposite to the unified system of nature with the egoistic “distorted” society, we create the reason for the general crisis.

The solution is not feasible in any other plane, only in the correction of societal ties: we need to start building them not on egoism, but on altruism that is opposite to it. With our egoistic connections, our development, we’ve put the system that governs our world out of balance so the system of governance forces our destruction. The immediate correction of man’s nature is the only realistic solution. If we do not take the view of Kabbalah, we will be forced to this conclusion by World War.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 121

laitman_259_02Question: Nature has increased the world population to 7 billion so that every individual will be able to correct his individual part, because if everyone has a big ego, it is very hard to correct. But if the nation of Israel doesn’t unite, there may be a third and fourth world war, and then there will be very few people left that will still have to unite in order to correct the world. Will the few people that remain have to carry the burden of correcting the ego?

Answer: They will undergo terrible afflictions as a result of the war and these afflictions will help them avoid using their ego in a negative way.

Question: What does the wisdom of Kabbalah say about the ancient people who lived more that 6,000 years ago? Were they on the animate level?

Answer: They were people just like us but people who belonged to that time. People have been evolving on this planet for tens of thousands of years, but the first man who attained the upper the world lived only 5,777 years ago; his name was Adam.
