What Is The Uniqueness Of Each One?

laitman_535_03Torah, Deuteronomy 15:11: For there will never cease to be needy within the land. Therefore, I command you, saying, you shall surely open your hand to your brother, to your poor one, and to your needy one in your land.

The Torah calls a person to reveal, through the connection to all others, that he can become a mechanism of their filling, a part of the general system. Each one must do it, because he is unique exactly in this. And “there will never cease to be needy” until thed final correction, until everyone is filled from each other, one through the other.

Therefore, in front of each one is the rest of humanity, all other souls. They are the “needy” that he has to fill. After all, all the others are me! Only now I don’t feel it, but as soon as I begin to fill them, I will feel that it is mine.

Each one of us is unique, because the Light goes through him to the rest of the souls. Nobody can avoid this work. Each one is obliged to fulfill his mission and perfection will be achieved only as an overall result.

Reality Or A Subjective Illusion?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Even the Talmud says that one judges according to his own flaws, that everyone judges according to his level of corruption, which means that even back then people understood that by changing their properties, they would be able to see the world.

Can we say that the connection with others was given to a person only so that he can check his attitude toward them since a person sees what is negative in others, and what is in him he always sees as positive? How can we use this principle in order to advance?

Answer: The external world exists only in a person’s perception, but he cannot say whether it exists externally to him.

Does the world continue to exist for a person who lives today but is gone tomorrow, or not? A person cannot determine or prove that. No one can determine or prove that, including Newton, because with regard to each of us, the whole world is an absolute, subjective illusion.

One may say that we see how a person dies and the world continues to exist, but with regard to the person who died, we cannot determine anything because we don’t share his feeling.

Thus a person was created like that in order to alter his attitude to others, which for him is the indication of exiting himself and of feeling the upper world outside himself. The world outside a person is the upper world.

The Soul During Sleep

laitman_564Question from Facebook: What is a dream, and what happens to the soul during sleep?

Answer: A dream is a purely physiological state of the beastly body, which has no relation to spirituality.

Rest is typical not only for humans but also for animals and plants. This suggest the need to alternate between two states, on and off, like the alternation of day and night.

Question: What happens to the soul during sleep?

Answer: A person has no soul! He is simply an animal that has only a bud (point) that can be developed with the help of studying the wisdom of Kabbalah, and then within him he will begin “to cultivate,” to grow, a spiritual organ called a soul. But this is only to the degree that a person carries out serious work on himself.

Moreover, he cannot carry this out alone but only in a society in which all the points are connected together, and that is how they create one single point that is composed of ten, which is called a spiritual Minyan (group of ten).

So, within the group of ten, by nullifying themselves and connecting together, they will begin to feel a spiritual force, a spiritual state. A connection like this is called a “soul,” within which the state of the next level is already felt, called the upper world.

But when a person just goes to sleep, this is a natural, beastly state that arises as a result of an internal overload of all the thoughts, emotions, memories, and so forth.

So during sleep, as a rule, we connect with what happened during the daytime because our thoughts are reloaded and sink internally to a deeper level of memory, and we feel this as dreams, which can take on different forms because they are cut off from egoistic desires. They are no longer found within the desires, but in thoughts above the desires.

There are states when dreaming that we can sense the future, but this has no connection to the wisdom of Kabbalah. There are some people who feel this more, others feel it less, and there are people like Wolf Messing, who feel the future in general, not necessarily during sleep. But this is absolutely irrelevant to the spiritual world, to the soul. Everyone has a bud for the beginning of the soul, but it is necessary to develop it. The wisdom of Kabbalah is waiting for you.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 159

laitman_629_3Question: What is the meaning of the middle of Bina?

Answer: The middle of Bina is the transition from the desire to bestow to the desire to receive.

Question: Is there absolute evil, and if so what is it?

Answer: Absolute evil is our egoism. The ego can develop, absorbing the attributes of bestowal and turning them and using them for its own sake by becoming equal to the Creator in the form of Pharaoh.

Marx’s Predictions Come True, Part 8

laitman_547_05The wealthy elite should understand that they are creating a time bomb of at least half of the population, and every day this number grows. The bomb is the unemployed that are becoming desperate.

They aren’t students that go to the streets in the big cities to create an uproar in support of Hillary Clinton. These are serious citizens and heads of families.

The elite, in fact, is sitting on the detonator, because the unemployed have nothing to lose. They are silent to a certain limit, but at some point they will explode. So far everything happened through the Trump and Clinton election race. But tomorrow everything could change; after all, every household keeps two to three guns at home.

A person who has lost all hope for a normal life for himself and his children is very dangerous. Therefore, I advise investing in these people to make them good citizens and to teach them to connect. This will cost much less than suppressing disturbances and restoring order.

We must realize that half the country does not agree to continue in the old way, and it must be appeased somehow. It is possible through integral education for a few billion dollars, which is nothing compared to the costs that would be required in the case of a riot.

Today it is necessary to spend money on police and security agents; none of this will be needed. We will have a good, peaceful, quiet population that doesn’t endanger our future life and allows all to live quietly in our country.

This education will be like a soothing lozenge for them. Otherwise we won’t be able to do anything with them. It is impossible to provide them all with work places. Every day the number of unemployed will increase. And what will the elite do? Today people voted for Trump, but tomorrow they might begin to act more firmly. In fact, the Ku Klux Klan could rise, start making a terrible mess and burning everyone.

Therefore, I offer integral education: a good way that will cost almost nothing. It must become a national program to improve the health of society and its lower and weaker sections. I don’t encourage them to rise for a revolution and to build communism, liquidating the upper class. But it is necessary to calm the unemployed that are out of work because of the technological revolution.

It happens in every country, even in not very developed ones. Today nobody needs a workforce. So what is to be done with the excess labor? These people are a heavy burden and a real threat for the country. They must be maintained at a certain level so that they remain human beings. Otherwise, all of America will be filled with abandoned ghost towns.

Who voted for Trump? Former hard workers, heavy industry workers of the “Rust Belt” of America that are left without jobs. But what can he give them? Nothing, since obviously of all his plans nothing will work out. What factories can he bring back to the US? None! It means that he will create fake workplaces in order to keep people busy; they will produce something and then dispose of it.

Today there already are many companies operating on this principle. Huge warehouses are filled with useless products. Our world has taken on an absolutely marred form. So it will be better to calm people and give them integral education so that they will be satisfied with their lives.

New Life #802 – What Will The Next Form Of Government Be?

New Life #802 – What Will The Next Form Of Government Be?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

As of today the world is a “small village,” but the problem is that human nature has remained egoistic.

A person has a natural urge for social life. He also needs a society to support himself, so he developed the economy, but we cannot succeeded in satisfying ourselves because the ego is constantly growing.

The family is an example of the kind of social relationships we must move toward. Philosophers have long understood that it is necessary to correct human nature, but they don’t know how to do this. Today relationships between people are so bad that even the family unit is falling apart. Only by constructing all of society as a family will we succeed in restoring the family unit.

There is a special power that we can bring into our lives to correct our nature.
It is our duty to move toward familial relationships because the world is in crisis. “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18) will be the next form of societal connection. We have no other choice.
