How Can We Correct The World?

laitman_565_01Question: What can we do so that there will be more justice and less suffering in the world? Why has the Creator created such an incorrect world?

Answer: The Creator did not create “such an incorrect world” but a totally uncorrected world, on purpose, so that we will correct it by perceiving its lack of correction. We can begin to correct the world by changing ourselves because there is nothing to correct but ourselves.

One Fate For All

laitman_629_4Question: What is a woman’s fate and what is a man’s fate according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: All of mankind have the same fate. The Creator gives every person a specific opportunity to get close to Him. Implementing this opportunity is called a successful fate and not fulfilling it is called an unsuccessful fate.

This is the only way a person’s fate is expressed, nothing else matters.

“False Witness”

laitman_532Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 05:17: And you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

A person should constantly work on himself by checking if his thoughts, desires, and intentions are directed toward bestowal and if he doesn’t deceive himself.

This is a very complex work that repeats each time at a higher and deeper methodical level of recognition. And every time you go to the next level, everything you did in the past, even with the very best intentions, seems egoistic to you. What was plus on the lower degree becomes minus on the next one. And this is how you rise.

Therefore, until the end of correction you will be accompanied by constant doubts. And every time you will be convinced that they were correct. It turns out you really were stealing, but didn’t feel it in you.

You cried and suffered, it seemed to you that you wholeheartedly wish well to everyone. There are many people in the world that beat their chests claiming this. And when they come to us, just after a few lessons they feel how it all was emptiness, lies, and deception, and they begin to move forward in the true dimensions.

Question: Who is “my neighbor”?

Answer: It is all me, my internal states.

And the “false witness” is the same. I witness myself, about myself, and about the Creator. Because the Creator is also what I feel and build within myself.

“UN: Prospects For Peace Between Israel And The Palestinians Are Decreasing”

laitman_273_02In the News (MIGNews): “Special Coordinator of the United Nations for the Middle East peace process Nikolay Mladenov said that a peaceful future for Israelis and Palestinians can not be achieved against the background of the glorification of terror among the Palestinians and the continuing Israeli settlement activities. In a statement, Mladenov said that Palestinians and Israelis ‘reached the point where many on both sides have lost faith in the commitment to each other in creating a future for the two states, living side by side in peace, security and mutual recognition. In the end, the sad reality for the peoples on both sides of the conflict is that that the things they value most – statehood and security – are escaping them all.’ Mladenov also said that ‘a peaceful future for both peoples can not occur against the background of statements that glorify terrorism and justify murder; mutual respect may not come as a result of stab wounds, shootings and car collisions. Heroes do not kill the sleeping children.’ …

“In the Quartet report, [the UN] said that ‘Israel must stop the policy of settlement construction and expansion, the purposing of land for exclusive use in the interests of Israel and the denial of Palestinian development.’… The report also examines the Palestinian wave of violence, in October that killed at least 214 Palestinians, 34 Israelis, two American. Israel claims that more than two thirds of the Palestinians killed were in response to their attacks against Israelis. The Quartet report angered the Palestinians, who have been frustrated by the fact that both parties have been criticized, not just Israel. … Among the recommendations contained in the report, the Quartet called on Israel to lift its blockade of the Gaza Strip and called for the restoration of the Palestinian Authority control over Hamas ruling the Gaza Strip. Israel maintains a blockade to prevent the attack from terrorist group Hamas against Israel.”

My Comment: While this report was relatively balanced, it is preferable for the UN not to intervene, but first of all to get its house in order. Only then will our neighbors understand that they must agree to the creation of bilateral relationships and not dream of the annihilation of the State of Israel.

The Creator Is Waiting For Your Call

laitman_239Question: Is the wisdom of Kabbalah intended for everyone or only for a special part of humanity? Why should an ordinary person want to engage in the Creator’s work?

Answer: The Creator specially pulls us, shakes us, and sends us all sorts of disturbances and crises. He does this so that we will want to correct our fate and turn to Him for help. To this end He sends us all the troubles.

If we don’t turn to Him but try to do something within the framework of our life, we feel even worse because when we don’t turn to Him we force Him to send us another portion of suffering so that eventually we will turn to Him.

Man And Woman — A Magnet Between Them, Part 1

laitman_602_02Question: Where does the force of magnetic attraction between a man and a woman that awakens at a very young age come from?

Answer: Our universe began to develop approximately 14 billion years ago as a result of the Big Bang that created a completely new place, a new creation, which didn’t exist before.

Matter began to form that initially consisted of two opposite particles: a positive and a negative, a plus, and a minus.

Plus refers to the masculine and minus to the feminine. One cannot exist without the other. Probably in the very first particle, which served as a prototype of all matter, plus and minus existed together.

After that, minus and plus began to spread more and more and to create between themselves increasingly complex compounds, electrons and protons. From their meeting and collaboration were born all of the basic elements of the periodic table, which number almost 120 today.

From these elements larger objects were formed, i.e., gas accumulations, solid objects, and the planet Earth, where this collaboration of minus and plus developed further. Atoms combined into molecules and into crystals. Molecules became organic, alive, meaning they contained within themselves their development program.

The art of connecting plus and minus evolved from the inanimate to the vegetative stage, then to the animate, and finally to the human. The connection between plus and minus, masculine and feminine particles in nature became incredibly complicated.

On the inanimate degree, substances are classified according to the number of positive and negative particles, and valences. And even more so after the inanimate substance develops in a plant that grows from inanimate soil that it is able to give birth to itself and develop; all development takes place by connecting pluses and minuses according to a certain program.

Each creature has an internal program, like in a computer that creates within it increasingly complicated connections.

For this reason, a plant grows and continues to live; otherwise it would have been dead. The relationship between two “genders,” plus and a minus, is very complex in plants. And these relationships exist not only within each plant, but also between them.

The connection between flowers is performed with the help of birds and insects that connect pluses and minuses. It isn’t just the atoms and molecules anymore, but a special connection of chemical and biological substances that are also divided into “male” and “female.”

The evolution of the plant world continues until it reaches the animate degree, where there is a huge difference between male and female. Special types of relations occur between them according to the seasons. It is an entire culture of relationships even though it is controlled by instincts.

A human, as the highest stage of animate development, creates a special culture, education, environment, and human society. Therefore he stands out from the animal world and is superior to it. In humanity there are very complex relationships between plus and minus, i.e., men and women who live their lives together.

Throughout history a man and a woman created a joint family for quite a long time because they needed each other in order to raise their children, which requires many years. After all, the more developed the creature is, the more time is required for its development.

A big difference is obvious between the interaction of positive and negative elementary particles that arose during the creation of our universe and between things that happen to people. It even seems to us that a person has a freedom of choice and adds something to his program of development by determining his behavior himself, especially in regard to relationships between the sexes.

But in fact, we add nothing to the program of nature. Exactly like an animal, a plant, and a stone, a human obeys natural instincts and behaves according to the program installed in him or her, which manifests and leads to the ultimate goal.

Exercises For The Revelation Of The Creator

laitman_281_01Question: What intention should a person have who lives in this world and studies Kabbalah when he sees material objects?

Answer: A person must live according to the simple principle: “There is none else besides Him,” a single force, i.e., the Creator.

I look at all external objects and occurrences and even at everything that is inside me that has no an external image, and imagine that all this comes from the Creator, that this is exactly what He wants to arouse in me, and this is exactly what He wants me to feel! And now everything depends on the way I treat this. Therefore, all material objects and this entire world are very important to me.

Question: Can I break through everything that confuses me by doing such purely psychological exercises?

Answer: Yes. When I attribute it all to one single force, I break through to the Creator. Through all my efforts to identify Him behind the various influences on me, behind the multitude of objects, forces, opinions, desires, and thoughts, I begin to see and feel Him. I desire something, so why does He want me to desire it? I think about something, why does He wants me to think this way? I am nobody. I am like a mechanism, just a metal box in which there are some thoughts and feelings, i.e., a heart and a mind, and only I can inspect myself: “Why did this appear in me? What does the single, uniform, and absolute force that controls me want from me? Why does this force want me to feel my state this way every moment?”

On this basis, I enter in complete contact with the Creator according to my small level. And if I continue to move forward this way through “there is none else besides Him,” then I will define more and more what the Creator wants from me, what He’s up to, and what reaction He expects from me.

And so I will begin to approach Him gradually, as it is said in Kabbalah, “There is nothing in nature that a person can’t achieve through a constant effort.” Therefore, I can reach a state where I will start to feel, see, and understand the Creator and communicate with Him as with a close friend. And all this is only thanks to the tip that there is no one else besides Him behind everything that surrounds me.

The various concealments of the Creator are exercises through which He gives me an opportunity to recognize Him behind all the disturbances. My task is to never part with this thought and not to forget that everything comes from Him under any circumstances.

This isn’t simple. And here I can get help only from the society of people who think the same way I do, and our joint effort is out in the open so we influence each other.

If we create such a group from millions of people who are tuned this way and are willing to reveal the Creator, we will “wash” the entire world by this and everything will become plain and clear.

New Life #504 – Living Through Screens

New Life #504 –  Living Through Screens
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel


All of nature is one integrated system, and developing in this system requires our connection to each other, as if we were members of one family, but our egoism opposes and doesn’t want to truly connect to others. The era we live in is the era of the screen, and it brings with it a feeling that the whole world is in the palm of our hand, that we are connected to the whole world and that the world is connected to us.

But most of all, the screens reveal our nature. We become more direct, and behave without shame. The screens expose our true faces, our nature, our ego, and places a mirror in front of us.

It is true that we were also egoists 200 years ago, but then we covered it with false manners. Today, the Internet has dissolved all these games and unleashes all the evil in us and forces us to correct it and to truly connect with our environment.

We will soon realize that we have to connect to and to be part of the trend of integration. It will happen very soon.
