In A Group Of Ultra-Egoists

laitman_549_02Question: Are you against self-education? How can a group of ultra-egoists convey the attribute of bestowal and altruism to me if they don’t have these attributes?

Answer: Can a person educate himself?! No one conveys anything to you. The members of the group will only draw you inside, into the group with them, and you will try to be with them in order to reveal the positive force of nature. They only show a person how to do it.

Arcane Knowledge Does Not Help

Laitman_507_03Question: Does one need a particular spiritual level to use Kabbalistic language?

Answer: We study in the Hebrew language, which is simultaneously translated into other languages.

If you study the way we teach, you will not need anything additional. This will be enough for spiritual advancement. Furthermore, we must have a connection between us. We must increase this connection and elevate and expand it, and nothing more than that.

Abstruse knowledge doesn’t help but only hinders the revelation of the heart because Kabbalistic knowledge is emotional.

Everyone Is Unique In Spirituality

laitman_527Question: Everyone has a mission in this world. How is it possible to become like the teacher, with respect and love for him, but remaining on your own path?

Answer: You don’t become like the teacher, you specifically develop in your own way and form. Externally, as a result of a shared connection, forms of speech and grammar or something similar like the teacher’s may appear in you, but this has no connection to spirituality. Everyone is unique in spirituality.

Question: Do you suppose that not being like your teacher is the right message?

Answer: It makes no difference. Even if a student thinks one way or another, the curve always leads a person to the “straight line.” Sooner or later the students will understand and everything will work out. I don’t give guidance about this. A student must gradually understand everything for himself.

The Integral System, The Fate Of Humanity

laitman_942Question: Operating in mutual cooperation on the level of the forces of nature is not everyone’s fate but only of a few. But according to what you say, everyone will have to undergo spiritual education. How do you explain this contradiction?

Answer: There is no contradiction. Since we are all egoists and were created by the egoistic force, we all have to reach a state of balance by revealing the positive force between us. This refers to grownups, children, men, women—everyone.

Kabbalah And Magic

Laitman_632_3Question: What does the wisdom of Kabbalah say about magic? For example, there are psychics who help people.Is this a good thing?

Answer: Magic is the manipulation of the human subconscious. Both magic and various psychotherapies have a place because the inner psychological world of a person is very extensive, comprehensive, and fragile. It is not clear, so people use them. In principle, a human being is a very weak creature.

If it is possible to influence a person psychologically, in a good way, and we understand precisely how the treatment works, it is possible to allow such assistance to comfort the person, to remove stress from him.

In What Language Should One Speak With The Creator?

laitman_568_01Question: Why is the language of Kabbalah more appropriate for our generation? Is it because it is possible to wake up and summon the positive force of nature with its help?

Answer: Yes. The language of Kabbalah is most appropriate for our times because it is a precise language. When a person uses it, he helps shape his emotions correctly.

A person wakes up and summons the influence of the higher forces upon himself with feelings, not through words. When these feelings are processed, spoken, and shaped internally into particular patterns appropriate for the structure of the spiritual world, they acquire an absolutely precise manner of expression in spiritual forms. So he awakens and summons upon himself the influence of the Upper Light, the Ohr Makif (Surrounding Light) with maximal intensity.

If we are talking with the Creator, meaning with the higher level, it is necessary to speak in Hebrew.

New Life #801 – From Capitalism To Socialism

New Life #801 – From Capitalism To Socialism
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

We are approaching the end of the era of neoliberalism, capitalism is going to disappear and people won’t be able to become rich any more. 

In the future people will not receive fulfillment from money but from something whole and eternal. Nature is directing us to develop toward a new, unlimited form of existence. Someone who is concerned about the common good will be considered a more developed person. Competition will be in the field of bestowal to society: whoever bestows more to society, will be more respected.

In this way, each will have an equal opportunity to bestow and develop without barriers and feelings of deprivation. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches how to move to the next state of society in which a person will enjoy giving benefit to others.
