Answer: There is no need to invent or to make any decisions by ourselves because we cannot correct anything inside us.
The only thing we can do is to draw the positive force that is external to us, which can correct us and thus fulfill to the exact degree and in the attributes that are necessary for the optimal correction of every step of our development.
So we need to draw the Light without any delay, and it will already sort out and divide all our attributes and operate in order to bring them closer to correction by affecting a certain attribute a bit more and another a bit less, etc. This is how we begin our correction as one whole.

Answer: Slander comes from the sensation of one’s pride. If you say only good things about everybody you won’t be able to elevate yourself. The need to rise above others forces a person to slander others.
As a general rule, we have to try to talk only with the Creator.
Congress in Moscow, Lesson 4, 5/3/16
Opinion (7kanal): “Presented below is a video, posted on the worldwide web, that is gaining hundreds, if not thousands of views, not only in Israel but also in the Arab sector, and even in the far left.
“View it by clicking on this link.
“In the video, wearing a cowboy hat, is a man who calls himself ‘Wild Bill,’ who expresses his support of Israel.
“By far the most creative invention of Islam is ‘the Palestinian,’ a person who has never been seen before in the modern world, who supposedly lived in a nation that never existed. The Palestinian was invented shortly after the nation of Israel sprang into existence as the new name for the traditional home of the Jewish people.
“Now prior to the invention of the Palestinian, the Arab nations had been lusting for the land of the Jews … So in the traditional Muslim style, they sent in massive armies to massacre the Jews and steal their land. But the Israelis … sent the Arabs fleeing back across the border …
“But prior to the invasion, the Arab’s warned all the Jordanians, Syrians, and Lebanese living in Israel to get out. They confidently told them that within a few days they could waltz right back in and take over the homes of the exterminated Jews.
“But when the Arab armies failed to capture even one Jewish home, the Arabs who had left had no place to go, and that is when the Muslims invented ‘the Palestinian.’ They told the Jordanians, Syrians, and Lebanese that they are now Palestinians and that they were to spread the story that the Jews had stolen their homeland from them leaving them as poor refugees …
“And the Palestinian came into existence for the express purpose of causing trouble for Israel. …
“The next time you talk to one of these supporters of the ‘poor Palestinians’ ask them a few questions like: What year did the nation of Palestine come into existence? What were its national borders? And in what year did it cease to exist? Well since it never existed in the first place, they won’t be able to answer you. … What currency did the nation of Palestine use and why is their no history of it? And ask them if they can name one leader of the nation of Palestine prior to Yasser Arafat?”
My Comment: There is no need for proof. Basically we have transformed our “incorrect” existence on our land to “not ours.” We were expelled from it 2,000 years ago as a result of discovering mutual hatred between us. As long as we don’t replace it with a good connection between us, we will not convince anyone that this is our place! We are not fighting with the Arabs but with ourselves and the Creator!
New Life #600 – The 15th Of Av – The Holiday Of Love
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
What is the connection between the holiday of love and the 9th of Av? Why have we lost the ability to love and how can we reach the complete fulfillment of love in all our relationships?
The 15th of Av is considered one of the most favorable days for Israel. After the revelation of hatred comes the correction of love. Hate and love are two sides of the same matter and the distance between them is very short.
I have created the evil inclination (the 9th of Av); I have created the Torah as spice for it (the 15th of Av).
There is Light in nature, the correcting force. In Av we speak about the love between a couple: the Creator and the created beings; a male and a female, the Light and the desire to receive. If the connection between us is weak, the Creator cannot dwell among us, hug and kiss and mate with us.
The source of evil is the 9th of Av and the source of goodness is the 15th of Av. Good and evil are measured according to our closeness to the Light. Because we have not reached this upper goodness yet, the 15th of Av is interpreted as partnership and that’s all, as something light. Today there are many problems in the relations between us: in a relationship between a couple, in the family, at work, and in the Knesset. This is a state of destruction, the 9th of Av.
Love means filling the desires of others before I fill my own desire. I need to know what the other wants, to feel it, and his or her desire should be more important to me than my own. In spirituality every moment there is awareness of your new partner again, but we lack that. True love is a love that is constantly renewed, endless, and eternal. Love thy friend as thyself is the way to pair with the Creator, and can be exercised in relationships with friends.
A group refers to ten people who connect with love and build the vessel for the revelation of the Shechina between them. Spiritual partnership is when two people feel as one, and the agreement, the understanding, and the complementation between them in their heart and mind. In fact, we should reach this loving relationship not only as a couple but toward everyone. The first tip is: try to feel each other, just as you feel yourselves, try to feel that you are one, in one reality.
