My Thoughts On Twitter, 2/10/17

It’s impossible to stop the trend against corrupt liberalism by removing Trump. And it may lead to civil war and even world war.

Anti-semitism shouldn’t be primitive. It should be wiser: pushing the Jews to do their job in the world—become a light unto the nations.

If Trump realizes the Jews’ potential—as did Henry Ford—he will force them to fulfill their mission in this world: exemplify unity.

The world was eager to bring America and Russia together, but now it blames Trump for doing so. That’s what political correctness leads to.

It’s no wonder that the entire world, raised on neoliberalism, is anti-American today. But gradually, it will have to straighten up.

The world will gradually realize: only our voluntary connection will oblige the upper force to unite and elevate us to a higher level.

A tip for Trump: ask Jews supporting you to unite. They will silently force Jewish liberals to unite, thus everyone will come together.

Can I Use 100% Of My Brain?

laitman_256Question: According to scientific data, we use only 3-5% of the potential of our brains. Do Kabbalists use 100% of their brains?

Answer: No, a greater percent of our brains will be utilized only when we become integrally mutually connected.

Each of us needs to enter into a system in which, besides oneself, billions of particles will be found that also have desire and intelligence. All of us must connect with the help of the Upper Light. Only then will a person need a larger portion of the brain.

When we connect to each other through our desires and minds, our brain works like a modem. Today we basically only have beastly characteristics and their realization.

Question: To serve the desires of billions of people, will a person need to activate the brain an additional 97%?

Answer: It is not a matter of the billions of people; it is the determination of a very simple integral: I can give to one only in some particular way and to another in another particular way, to this one, this way and to another, that way, and so forth. What this means is that a person begins to connect and integrate in an infinite chain that must be connected to him, and he to it. In this way he constantly calculates all the possibilities. It is impossible to realize this linearly, but only spiritually!

But this calculation is not realized through our intelligence. The intelligence clothes the desire and from it emerges an elementary, integral, mutually connected and infinite chain.

We specifically learn about this in the wisdom of Kabbalah, about the connection between Partzufim, between worlds, where each particle in which a change happens stimulates a change in the entire system.

Every change really stimulates a shock to the entire system. Therefore, great mind and feelings are needed for all the calculations and sensations to understand how they flow in eternal and infinite harmony.

A Kabbalist sees how all the particles of the general desire are arranged and constantly redistributed gradually like an ocean in which billions of drops stream from place to place and everything is felt together. This is called the radiance of the Shechina (Divinity).

Malchut And Bina, Salt Water And Fresh Water

laitman_740_01Question: What is the spiritual root of fresh water resources such as lakes and water reservoirs, and how do they differ from the spiritual root of salt water?

Answer: Salt represents Malchut and water represents Bina. The connection between Malchut and Bina, i.e., the ascent of Malchut to Bina or the descent of Bina to Malchut, generates life. This is the difference between our life and the upper life.

Salt water is Bina that received Malchut’s special attributes. There is a greater amount of salt water on the surface of the earth and very little fresh water. Most of the fresh water is desalted water that goes through filters and is evaporated, etc. There are also many different systems that balance the attribute of Bina and the attribute of Malchut.

Question: In geographical Israel, there is the freshwater lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) and the saltwater Dead Sea.

Answer: The two lakes are total opposites. The Kinneret is fed by water descending from above, from Mt. Hermon, from melting snow and from rainwater.

The Dead Sea is the lowest point in the world, which is a depression in the ground completely covered by salt. The sea raises the salt in the earth and even the fresh water that comes from the Sea of Galilee becomes salty. The source of the salt water in the Dead Sea is different from the source that fills the seas and the oceans. This is a very special physics of this particular geographical location.

EU – It Is Better To Separate Than To Be Bound By Egoistic Ties

Laitman_419Question: How do you see society in Europe in 2020? Will the current events impact the unity of the European community or will they lead to greater division? What will happen to the EU economy?

Answer: That depends on many factors. But if Europe is divided, it will be better off than if it stays the way it is today.

It is better to disperse gradually than to relate as they do today because currently these ties are purely egoistic. And if they are gradually corrected, it is possible to keep things the way they are. In fact the European states will be able to get closer to each other and to cooperate properly according to the degree of their correction.

I don’t think that now they will suddenly feel what I am saying. I have spoken about it many times in person with European leaders. They will not do it. They will not be able to! Politicians and bankers are managing Europe. For them a united Europe is the unity of banks and industrial plants in order to profit as much as possible and to crush whoever is below them to rise above someone. Therefore, there is no point talking about a united Europe. It is the unity of the industrial market and of the banks and nothing more than that. And the rest of the people experience only troubles. The disparity between the two will only keep growing.

What Does The Torah Tells Us?

laitman_527_07It is impossible to understand the text of the Torah directly. Therefore, religions and all their distortions appeared from its misinterpretation, and they make us think we should fulfill its precepts in our corporeal lives.

And the Torah says that the group created by Abraham went down to Egypt; that is, they began to feel greater egoism.

Then they decided to exit the egoism, rise above it, which is called the exodus from Egypt. They are ready to connect among themselves to rise above their egoism, in other words, they accept the condition of mutual guarantee.

However, in order to fulfill this condition and begin to correct the egoism by realizing it in the direction of bestowal and love, we still need the upper force called the Torah, which means Light. And they receive it. The Light should enter their egoistic desires and therefore, they inevitably build the golden calf.

Moses is the part that unites them, raises them above Mount Sinai, which means mountain of hatred. He splits this Light and it enters their desires called the golden calf, melts them, and receives the mixture of very strong mutual egoistic desires, inside which the Upper Light exists.

Now they can start working with this terrible mixture, gradually extracting the required parts from it and connecting them into the correct system.

This occurs when Moses comes down from Mount Sinai the second time with the new Tablets of the Covenant on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), ten days after Rosh HaShanah (New Year), that is, after the realization of the internal upheaval and the entrance of the completely different goals, thoughts, and forces for correction—the existence of a new system.

In other words, in ten days, meaning in ten Sefirot after Keter, they reach Malchut and completely attain the system where they exist. Therefore, on Yom Kippur they judge themselves, understanding what they need to do and deciding how to continue to exist. And the actual correction starts after the Day of Atonement.

The first Tablets of the Covenant are the solid Light of Hochma, the strongest Light, that eventually must fill all the desires and reach the state of the world of Infinity, endless fulfillment. They symbolize Tzimtzum Aleph (the First Restriction).

The second Tablets of the Covenant are built on the condition of Tzimtzum Bet (the Second Restriction) when we can completely, fearlessly, without making mistakes, correct ourselves because the Upper Light comes to us not with the same force as the first time, and we begin to feel what desires can be connected among themselves and how to correct ourselves properly.

In other words, the second Tablets symbolize the small state, during which we correct our nature through gradual actions. All the wandering in the desert speaks exactly about this path.

Transmitting Positive Thoughts

laitman_942Question: There are people who have come to an agreement to transmit positive thoughts around them for a particular period of time. Can this help the world?

Answer: Sitting, holding hands, sincerely looking at each other, and talking nicely is naive.

Only if we work in a group of ten precisely according to the method of the wisdom of Kabbalah, can we draw the positive force from nature. This is the way to have a positive influence on the environment.

New Life #811 – The Right Attitude To Parenting

New Life #811 – The Right Attitude To Parenting
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

“Teach a boy according to his way.”

We should not force a small child to share something with others because it is against his nature. Until the age of two children actually don’t understand that they should be considerate of other people around them. We can give a child examples of how we are considerate of others, but not expect him to behave that way.

We should combine the middle line and the measure of judgment, which means our expectations of the child and the measure of mercy, which is our love for him. When we don’t give a child something, he screams. We have to show him that it doesn’t affect us because the reason for our behavior is above us, as a law.

We have to act according to the approach of “teach a boy according to his way,”because one kid is slow and another is quick etc. Instead of requirements we should give more examples. “Teach a boy according to his way” means letting a child choose what he wants to be in life according to his inclinations.

We shouldn’t try to develop a child’s confidence by challenging him and forcefully putting him in stressful situations. The feeling of confidence is built by a balanced attitude to life, when a child decides what he can or what he cannot do by himself.

The most important thing is to let a child develop the right relationships with others. This is the precondition for success in everything in life. When a child succeeds you should compliment him on having thought and planned his actions in advance, which has led to his success.

You shouldn’t call a child a prince or princess because it makes him or her feel superior to others and this will hinder the child through life.
