A person must realize all the commandments not only within himself, but on every possible external manifestation of his egoism. The doorposts and the gates are the restrictions that exist around our external desires. The fact is that desires come from inside out and are graded as following: the house, the yard, the fence around them, and then the field and the desert.
All this is inside a person; this is how he is created. He must also create such attributes, such symbols externally, in order to be aware of them. Therefore, there is a custom to kiss the mezuzah, but only in order to remind a person about his internal states that must be corrected.
The problem is that we don’t use them. It would be good if we explained that all of these are just signs that remind the people that they must correct their hearts. However, since we don’t teach them this, people are satisfied with performing the commandments mechanically and consider themselves righteous because of it. People don’t want to learn and listen to what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells them.
It is necessary to teach them both at the same time and not to replace one with another! This is the problem.
Torah, Deuteronomy 11:21: In order that your days may increase and the days of your children, on the land which the Lord swore to your forefathers to give them, as the days of heaven above the earth.
“In order that your days may increase” is a constant elevation on the 125 degrees to the world of infinity (Ein Sof), so that a person will possess “this land,” meaning all of the immense desire within him. He must reveal, develop, and correct it and exist in it on a completely different level.

Answer: Everything depends on our attitude to the Creator because we bring our feelings into this system.
When we work on a computer, we sometimes get angry at it, curse it, and even want to break it. Why? This happens because we transfer our emotions to those objects that deal with the forces we are interacting with. It is the same with the Creator. The Creator is absolute! The absolute cannot be changed. He is not influenced by our requests and cannot interact with us because He is absolute!
Question: So how can we make the Creator happy?
Answer: We make Him happy in our sensations. Therefore, the Creator is called Bore (come and see). I come and see and discover Him inside me.
Question: Does this mean that we only feel that we make Him happy?
Answer: Yes. The Creator is something that applies to me, in our corrected feelings. We can say that something exists externally to us and still we have to work for the Creator because this is how we feel wholeness. When we attain Him, we begin to understand what is concealed in these words, what it means to bring the Creator contentment and whether this is possible. This is what awaits us in the future.
Question: If the Creator is the connection of everyone to everyone, how can this connection be happy?
Answer: When we connect with each other, a connection that is above us is created between us even though it is woven from our feelings, thoughts, intentions, and relationships between us. Because it isn’t in each of us, it is created between us, in the distance between us, in the connection between two people. This connection is not in a certain person or in me, but between us. The emptiness that is revealed in the mutual relations between us is what displays the Creator’s image to us.

Questions from my Facebook page
Question: What is the meaning of dreams in our world?
Answer: Dreams are the outcome of our thoughts and our daily experiences and feelings.
Question: I met a person who has been studying Kabbalah for 15 years. He doesn’t like animals. I love them and try to help homeless animals. Is it a Kabbalist’s privilege to hate animals?
Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah tells us to establish a connection between all of mankind into one system.
In the process of creating such a connection, we will discover that we are in a single system with the animate, vegetative, and even the inanimate levels of nature. But the main thing is the connection between people in order to achieve the revelation of the Creator in this connection here and now.
Answer: Not at all!
A person who comes in and says: “Where is the Creator? What wall do I have to break through in order to reach Him?!” has to be beaten many times before so he can be turned into a rag.
After all, a person does not have the strength to enter the upper world. He has to reach the state where he only asks for the strength to reach the level of the next world.

Question: Is a classical symphony orchestra performing the brilliant works of Bach or Mozart an example of a group that summons the Upper Light and connects to the Creator and His infinite perfection?
Answer: You probably don’t know the musicians very well, especially ones in a symphony orchestra. Competition, hatred, and manipulations flourish between them.
They are harmonious with each other only as musicians; the internal harmony of the hearts, the contact between the hearts, can be created only by the help of the Upper Light. So leave that to the lyrics, not to the truth.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 5/9/16
In the News: (Fondsk): “Unconditional basic income, or bank-oligarchic dictatorship abbreviated AML ( ‘unconditional basic income’) is now in vogue among those who study and describe the emerging trends in social policy. AML can be defined as a guaranteed monetary income for every citizen, the receipt of which is not dependent on any preconditions. The only condition is that the person belongs to a particular state jurisdiction. At the same time, the amount of money received by a citizen, must provide him at least a minimum standard of living. In other words, the AML is to release a person from being a ‘slave’, depending on work as the source of his existence. …
“If we sum up the expectations ascribed to AML, they can be summarized as follows:
“Therefore, skeptics say that the AML system can trigger an increase in poverty. From the introduction of AML only those who are at the bottom will benefit . There will be a leveling effect of poverty at a total absolute and relative increase in the number of poor in the society.
“Other skeptics emphasize that economic growth would slow down or even recession begins. People prefer an idle life, reserve of army labor will be reduced and may even result in a shortage of workers. And to overcome this deficit will require higher wages in the economy. Simply put, the economic development will be complicated for the reason that the money from production will be reallocated in the sphere of consumption, violating the established proportions of the economy.
“There is another large group of skeptics who fear that the introduction of AML will stimulate immigration of large masses of people to the countries with the AML system. …
“The elimination of social programs and a sharp reduction of the state apparatus and officials who serve, would provide the lion’s share of the money needed for AML payments. …
“I will assume that the interest of Western society in programs of ‘unconditional basic income’ (AML), are warmed by the global oligarchy. This is part of the overall project of transition to a new world order. The model of capitalism today, for many reasons, has exhausted itself, and the world oligarchy … is launching its global ‘restructuring’. Namely: to build a new slave system, clean up the planet of the ‘surplus’ population and form of a ‘new man.’ …
“AML – is a continuation of the course of the global elite toward human decomposition. First, the owners of money cultivated greed and the desire to consume, and now the cult of idleness. Man is easily definitively transformed into an animal. AML is intended to speed up the process….
“In addition, AML is a means for the final dismantling of the state. … People are left alone with the giant corporations, which are gradually replacing the state. In fact, AML – is not absolute income. It is very dependent on the will and the decisions of the owners of money, which is enough to hold their Kabbalistic manipulations with the money, so they became worthless.”
My Comment: Where did they get “Kabbalistic manipulations”? From a global conspiracy?
Research (Oregon State University): “Researchers have discovered a mechanism of intercellular communication that helps explain how biological systems and actions – ranging from a beating heart to the ability to hit a home run – function properly most of the time, and in some scenarios quite remarkably.
“The findings are an important basic advance in how cell sensory systems function. They shed light on the poorly-understood interaction between cells – and they also suggest that some of the damage done by cancer cells can be seen as a ‘failure to communicate.’ …
“By working in communication and collaboration, most of the cells eventually decide what the correct sensory input is, and the signal that gets passed along is pretty accurate. …
“‘These processes of collective sensory communication are usually accurate, but sometimes work better than others. Mistakes are made,’ Sun said. ‘Even so, this process makes life possible.’”
My Comment: The proper interaction between all parts of nature is life. But it doesn’t exist on the level of human interaction. Therefore, in the overall picture of nature, we are no more than animals; we do not have the correct mutual communication of the human level. When we acquire it, through the wisdom of Kabbalah, we will discover life on the level of Man (Adam).
New Life #774 – Jewish Demography
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel
The birth rate in Israel is high because we are living in an optimistic bubble and are unaware of danger. We are unaware of our mission in the world and that we are not sufficiently carrying it out. Our mission is to show the world how to live in connection and love.
The Jews of the Diaspora are renouncing Israel; the Jews who are not religious will continue to disappear from the fold of Judaism. This is a process that is leading to the point where we will realize that we have nothing to rely upon except ourselves, and then we will begin to act.
There are Jews just about everywhere in the world because the Light shines through them onto the world. This is the life force and its vitality. The Jews need to spread the value of connection to connect all of humanity into one big soul.
