“In Every Desire Of Your Soul”

Laitman_509Question: What is meant by: “However, in every desire of your soul, you may slaughter and eat meat…; the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the deer, and as of the gazelle” (Deuteronomy 12:15)?

Answer: Meat symbolizes receiving the Light of Hochma into the real desire to receive—what a person consumes with his most egoistic desires—but in order to bestow. Deer and gazelle are animals that can be killed in other ways than domestic animals (for example, deer can be killed with a bow), while they nevertheless still remain kosher.

“Clean” is a person who is in a state of complete correction, and “unclean” is one who understands that he is not yet corrected, but still enters to be purified.

The Torah speaks only about people with an immense desire to become similar to the Creator and to see Him and the entire universe in its true condition themselves.

What Is The Root Of The Hatred Between Islam And Judaism?

laitman_202_0Question: Despite the fact that Islam emerged as a consequence of Christianity and Judaism, Islam has an extreme negative attitude to both religions and especially to Judaism. If we ignore the territorial claims and demands of the Muslim world against Israel for a moment, why is there such hatred between these religions?

Answer: Initially, there was no animosity between Islam and Judaism. Christianity, having completely opposite origins, places itself in opposition to Judaism. Islam has never been considered as a religion that is strange to Judaism. The foundations of Islam are very close to Judaism. The Muslims believe in the same Creator, the same God, which is in no way material and cannot be expressed or described in any other way.

The difference between the two religions stems from the fact that the Arab nation, which stems from Abraham’s son and his female slave, has another prophet named Mohamed. Mohamed put forth his prophecy, and it spread among the Bedouins who lived in the deserts of Saudi Arabia in the sixth and seventh centuries. Later, his prophecy gradually spread as a religion. Basically, Islam is founded on commandments that are absolutely Jewish, and there is nothing in Islam that contradicts Judaism. For ages, there were no conflicts or clashes between Jews and Arabs.

The problems began much later during the time of colonialism in the lands they lived in since the Christians conquered the region and began to persecute the Jews, as expressed as disrespect and hatred toward them. This attitude was passed on to the Arabs as well, and they gradually developed this attitude into ideology, which grew into deep hatred.

Question: What is the root of this phenomenon? Why has this process taken place in this way?

Answer: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, this phenomenon has taken place in order to force the nation of Israel to fulfill its duty to humanity. Its duty is the revelation of the method of connection and bringing all the nations to a level of total, absolute unity. The Torah also tells us that the entire world must be united, and if the Jews don’t reveal the method of unity, no other nation will be able to do so,

Question: Today, Islam is actually at the spearhead of this pressure and not Christianity.

Answer: Christianity has been greatly weakened; it agrees to anything. This situation is not dependent on external forces, but on spiritual forces that are running out, and therefore, the power is drying up like fuel in a nuclear power plant gradually runs out, and it can’t do anything since it is processed and spent. In the future, we are going to face very strong pressure from Islam, which will also be on the Christian nations and, first of all, on Europe and America. Then, their common pressure will be aimed at Israel. We are going to see how they will try to start great wars in our region.

Question: Is Islam putting pressure on the Christian world in order to subsequently force them to also put pressure on the Jews?

Answer: No, the goal of Islam is to conquer the world, and therefore the Muslims feel that Christianity is an enemy that opposes their ideology.

Question: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, the greatest enemies will later turn into the closest friends.

Answer: Everything depends on how we promote the method of integral unity in the world. Only the Upper Light, the great good force that we must reveal to the world in order to unite, can settle all of the conflicts.

Eternal Pleasure And Corporeal Life

laitman_742_03Question: Where and how can we acquire the patent of eternal pleasure? Is it possible to acquire it during our corporeal life? Does the ability to enjoy disappear when the physical body dies?

Answer: We can attain eternal pleasure only during our corporeal life. And this doesn’t change when the physical body dies.

We can hold on to pleasure that is external to corporeality while still in our physical body and continue developing this desire beyond the limiting frameworks that are depicted to us by the world and by our reality. We must attain at least the beginning of spiritual pleasure even before the death of the physical body, and then we will be able to continue it forever.

The Four-Letter Name Of The Creator And The Three Lines

laitman_237Question: What does the four-letter name of the Creator and the three lines in each letter mean?

Answer: The four-letter name of the Creator is necessary in order to work with egoism in all of its depth.

In other words, this is the development of egoism in four stages, or the four stages of development of the Direct Light.

When we are talking about the correction of egoism, each stage is divided into three lines: right, left, and middle. The left line is egoism itself, the right line is the force of the Light that is required for its correction, and the middle line is the place where egoism should exist in the corrected state.

Therefore, each of the four stages in the depths of egoism consists of the uncorrected part, the forces that correct it, and the corrected state.

“In 5 Years, The Earth’s Population Is Threatened With Global Extinction”

Laitman_702_01In the News (Independent): “The world is hurtling towards the first mass extinction of animal life since the dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago, according to the most comprehensive survey of wildlife ever carried out.

“By 2020, the populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and other vertebrate species are on course to have fallen by more than two-thirds over a period of just 50 years, the Living Planet report found.

“The current rate of extinction is about 100 times faster than is considered normal – greater than during some of the previous five mass extinctions in the Earth’s history.

“While the dinosaurs probably died out because a giant meteor hit the planet, just one species is the cause of the current problems: humans. …

“Dr Mike Barrett, director of science and policy at WWF-UK, said: ‘For the first time since the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, we face a global mass extinction of wildlife.

“‘We ignore the decline of other species at our peril – for they are the barometer that reveals our impact on the world that sustains us.

“‘Humanity’s misuse of natural resources is threatening habitats, pushing irreplaceable species to the brink and threatening the stability of our climate.’”

My Comment: This situation can change only through the cooperation of the world governments, and this is an impossible! We deliberately are leading ourselves to annihilation. Our egoism is killing us right before our very eyes! Our only hope is using the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah, which tells us how to reveal the positive force in nature and how to balance our egoism with it. But who will listen?

War Will Delay Human Development

laitman_222Question: Should a Kabbalist prevent war? Or, on the contrary, must he make efforts to ensure that the war comes quickly, but painlessly as possible, to solve the problems of the world?

Answer: Going to war is not the solution of a problem; it is the discovery of the evil that exists in us. But, we can discover that evil in a completely different way: through longing for good. And then the evil will be revealed, and we will be able, in spite of it, to climb over this evil and to connect. That’s the way to behave. To wait for war or to move toward it consciously is an absolutely erroneous method. It would lead to the prevention of the development of humanity and terrible consequences that cannot be foreseen.

After a third or fourth world war that the Kabbalists say may happen, it is expected that pitiful pieces would remain, a few million people, and it could be even less. They would continue human development. But without technological and scientific development, these groups would simply exist like the ancients and would unite.

On the one hand, among them, there would be an immense egoistic desire to “tear” the connections between them apart and act each for himself. On the other hand, the terrible suffering they would experience and all of the sights that would remain around them as a result of the war, the results of our civilization, would force them to cooperate correctly, mutually, to reach the right connection between them.

With the help of studying the wisdom of Kabbalah, we attract the Upper Light, a special energy, a special characteristic, the force that manages natural life. This force will help us understand how we can cooperate consciously. I am saying this to you with the knowledge that we have the ability to do this.
