Year 6000 Is The End Of History

laitman_214When we study Kabbalah we begin to understand that there is no time in the spiritual world. But there is a state called “6000 degrees” that we must go through and join 6,000 souls into one soul.

All this exists in the world of Atzilut inside Partzuf Zeir Anpin (the Creator). Therefore, when it comes to the spiritual states, they are unchanged.

If we say “6,000 years” it means 6,000 degrees; if we say “600,000 souls,” it means 600,000 so-called Reshimot (information records) that we need to realize between ourselves. In the spiritual world, everything is very clearly distributed and defined by formulas and graphs.

And all that concerns physical years and the reflection of the spiritual states on our life happens somewhat differently. After all, on the material level we can reduce years, and if, lets’ say, in the current year 5777 we make a complete correction, then our current year will be called 6,000 years. We will make a jump in time, i.e., will bring the Light of correction so much closer to us that we will jump through years with its speed.

It is quite difficult to explain exactly the match between the spiritual structures and physical, geographical, historical, and other ones because these temporal and spatial axes don’t fit in an ordinary person.

This is the problem that even Einstein, Hugh Everett, and other well-known scientists have found difficult to explain. Therefore, nobody in the world understands it, but they just agree, because in our usual animate (material) state we have no ability to perceive and feel the acceleration of time.

I hope we will live to see the time when we will participate together in the final correction and be honored to attend the “banquet” in honor of the end of correction to which the Creator, as the groom, will invite the whole creation, as a bride.

The bride needs to correct herself, to dress in the white robes, and to be beautiful to match the groom. Beautiful means the quality of bestowal.

This is a very serious event that will be felt as something really great: year 6000 is the end of history.

No Desire, No Prayer

laitman_600_04Question: Is it possible to raise a prayer and attract the Light if I do not feel any desperation or suffering?

Answer: How is it possible to pray if you do not feel any suffering? How can you ask if you do not have any need? A prayer is a revelation of desire. If I have no desire, then there is no prayer either.

Question: I can pray only from my own desire (Hissaron). How can I pray from my ten?

Answer: There is no way. Of course, you can mumble something, but it does not influence anything. If you do not exist in a ten, you cannot nullify yourself. You cannot make yourself similar to the Creator in any way.

You cannot pray from a ten without a common desire. Only together with friends when you unite into a one whole can you form a common intention, which is called a prayer.

The End Of Days Correction

Laitman_109Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 4:29 – 4:30: And from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are distressed, and all these things happen upon you in the end of days, then you will return to the Lord your God and obey Him.

Today we  are just beginning the path to the Creator. Ahead of us are many corrections.

Question: What does it mean “with all your heart and with all your soul?

Answer: “With all your heart” means with all your uncorrected desires. Once you correct them along with the thoughts and intentions, they will be called “all your soul.” The soul is the completely corrected desire of a person where he reveals the perception of the Creator.

At the end of days means at the end of the existence of egoism, when you fully rise to the top of the spiritual ladder through all 125 degrees, correcting the egoism and managing it correctly. Thus you merge with the Creator, attain all the worlds simultaneously, and begin to exist in perfection and eternity.

Today we are in the state that is called “at the end of days,” but it can last many more years. It is year 5777 now according to the Jewish calendar; 223 years remain until the end of 6,000 years.

However, we can accelerate our spiritual development if we actively attract the additional Upper Light. Starting from our generation onward it is possible and preferable for us and in the eyes of the Creator.

The upper system, called the Creator, is designed so that we can influence it and accelerate our development and correction. This is what Kabbalah was given to us for.

Everything the Kabbalists did throughout the history of humanity was only necessary to bring us to the realization of the spiritual method and to shorten the time of the spiritual development.

Therefore it is said, “Who is called Israel? Anyone who shortens the time of his spiritual development.”

Question: Is it possible to pass 223 years in one year?

Answer: And even in less time. It is written in The Book of Zohar and in other Kabbalistic sources that there are no restrictions on this. We can do it very rapidly. We were given everything: Kabbalah, the spiritual method, the system, and the instruction for its implementation. The rest is totally up to us.

How Can One Become A Jew?

Laitman_632_4Question: How is it possible to convert to being a Jew in your understanding?

Answer: In my understanding, to become a Jew means becoming a person who yearns for unity of all people in the world under the umbrella of love for others.

The Jews are a people founded on the basis of the concept, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). There is nothing else in Judaism. It is written in the Torah that the great general and essential rule is “And you shall love your friend as yourself.”

The term “Jew” is created also from the word, “Avar” (Hebrew, to pass). When the person passes from an egoistic perception of the world to an altruistic perception of the world, he becomes a Jew. So each one can be a Jew even if he is German, French, Spanish, etc. It makes no difference whom. Being a Jew is the ideological affiliation, not biological.

Question: Does this mean that you don’t attribute significance to innate Jewishness or affiliation with Judaism?

Answer: Congenital Jewishness obliges us to immediately proceed to carrying out their mission in the world.

And all the other people will reach this to the degree that we Jews awaken them. This is called being a “Light to the nations.”

How Can I Be Saved?

400Question: Lately, many Russian-speaking Jews are leaving Israel to Europe, Canada, and America. How is it possible to make life in Israel more secure?

Answer: Leaving the country will not help us. We must unite. I am not saying that all the Jews should move to Israel, but they must unite where they are living. A method exists for this purpose that we are explaining and striving to implement. It is called the “wisdom of Kabbalah.”

It is the wisdom of how to discover our higher state within the unity between us and to show it to the whole world. Once the nations of the world feel that we are implementing the method of unity, then subconsciously, with the sixth sense, they will understand that this is specifically what they were expecting from us and will immediately stop blaming us for all their suffering. On the contrary, they will begin to relate to us with respect and concern.

Only in this way can we be saved and bring the world to the correct state.

Question: Does this mean that we don’t need to go anywhere?

Answer: This will not help. Today, with the general state of anti-Semitism, with everything that exists in the world, you will not find a corner on the surface of the Earth where it will be possible to hide.

It is not wise to hide behind another family name, to go somewhere that they don’t know who the Jews are, to hide in an isolated quiet secluded place, and so forth. There is no such thing! Because the spiritual force is at work. It will find everyone and bring them all together in one place.

Levels Of Studying Kabbalah

laitman_219_01Question: What is the difference between the way you teach the wisdom of Kabbalah and all the other ways of studying this wisdom?

Answer: The difference is the purpose for which a person studies the wisdom of Kabbalah. In our organization, we study the wisdom of Kabbalah in order to unite and in order to bring the Creator contentment by the unity between us, to delight Him. This is an altruistic yearning.

There are those who study the wisdom of Kabbalah not in order to delight the Creator, but in order to reveal Him. This is the intermediate phase in our development between the egoistic intention and the altruistic intention.

Much of the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah is as a method of uniting in order to live a better life, to escape from sufferings, or to gain life after death, etc. These are purely egoistic intentions, but it is commendable because it is directed at demanding from the Creator.

Any other aspirations below that have nothing to do at all with the Creator.

Russian Jews In Israel

laitman_565_02Question: Has the Russian-speaking population in Israel that have successfully integrated in Israeli society become a basis for the nation’s unity?

Answer: No. The hope that many had did not come true; the Russian-speaking population have not become the foundation for a new Israel, although the state’s ideologists who came to Israel at the end of the 19th century and even later were of Russian origin.

But 20th century Kabbalists believed that the Russian Jews would form the basis of a new Israeli society, which in turn, would be the basis for a new humanity. In other words, the way is open for the Russian Jews in this direction.

New Life #711 – What Women Want

New Life #711 – What Women Want
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

A man and woman are like plus and minus; they must eventually reach a balance, the correct connection between them; the man must give and the woman receives. She must want the right thing and he must fulfill this desire correctly. We cannot fulfill ourselves, only others, so the right connection between right and left is through finding the middle line between them.

In our day everyone is “out of order”; women want the incorrect fulfillment of false substitutes for their desires. The natural desire of a woman is first of all a family, but in the last century we have lost our direction regarding this matter. We have built an artificial world for ourselves in which life is difficult, the family unit is collapsing, and children are neglected.

The solution depends on an education for attaining the spiritual goal within relationships and family, as a gift that will uphold, “When husband and wife are worthy, the Shechina abides with them” (Sotah 17a). Fundamentally, a woman wants connection with the upper force through her husband. Throughout our history we developed through our desires until we felt an inclination for discovery of the inner essence, the supreme power, unconditional love.

The goal of alliance between partners is the discovery of the one supreme power that controls nature, our source, to which we must return to in unison. A woman wants that same power of love to dwell in her family because this is a safe, complete and eternal state. Through love between us we reach the revelation of the higher power of unconditional love.
