New Life #669 – Wired For Connection?

New Life #669 – Wired For Connection?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe


The wisdom of Kabbalah is not involved with the study of brain phenomena. Rather, it is the desire that causes the phenomena, and everything is expressed in our emotions. In competition, for example, when we compete against each other, the intensity of emotion multiplies and reaches a peak. A loss in competition produces the strongest emotional reaction because it is a direct blow to one’s pride and self-esteem.

This reaction is stronger than in victory because the basic instinct is not to be harmed. Shared loss is less painful because the injury is distributed among others, and after all, misery loves company.

It would be interesting to conduct a study among people who study the wisdom of Kabbalah regarding their attitude toward members of the group under conditions of victory or loss. Human nature is egoistic so one only enjoys someone else’s loss and one’s own betterment. These values can be changed with the environment through education; the environment influences us the most. The height of human development is the general state of love where everyone feels as if they are a single system.

  1. My question is; how can I/we as living physically in European societies deal with this? I mean in heart and Soul connected to and feeling love for Israel, belonging to Israel and longing for both ones own and societies connection to our Creator.

    How can we deal with and be transformed ourselves in this process, also bringing down hate and fear to a lower degree? It´s such a great moment in our lives and in history, so just not using it correctly and taking part would be to miss an opportunity I think.

    Sincerely I want an answer or at least a hint towards how to work here.
    Thank you very much
