Kabbalah is for the unbounded movement of people in the world, but after they correct their egoism and aspire to become one family.

Immigrants calling “Na’al abouk la France!” (F… France) will soon spread throughout Europe. That’s the result of reckless liberalism.

2300 pages of The Study of the 10 Sefirot begin with the question the book is meant to answer: WHAT’S THE MEANING OF OUR LIVES?

Is The Wisdom Of Kabbalah New Or Eternal?

laitman_265Question: Why isn’t the wisdom of Kabbalah updated and more modern? After all, everything has changed.

Answer: Laws that have been made by people, such as social, legal, and other laws change because people don’t know which rules should be in the system in the relations between people. These laws are concealed from people.

Therefore, laws thrive in human society. There is hardly any use for it because people don’t know what the true relations between people should be, so they keep making mistakes and keep trying to correct them. It is a constant never-ending work until people grow disappointed of their attempts and will replace this system with the wisdom of Kabbalah.

The laws of nature that we discover do not change. Scientists discover only what there is in nature and describe this regularity, but they don’t engage in the actual laws. Attaining the laws of nature depends on our development. When a person begins to reveal an additional system of connections in nature according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, he begins to see many new patterns of mutual connections and laws. In the future, we will see how relevant all this is.

Baal HaSulam says in his article” The Freedom” that because nature has determined that we are to live in a society, we are obliged to keep all of its laws. Otherwise, nature will demand and exact from us, regardless of whether we understand the meaning of its laws or not. The law of the rules of human coexistence is one of the basic laws of nature and we are obliged to keep it very carefully, totally ignoring our understanding.

The meaning of the law is to develop in us the recognition that self-love is bad and that love of others is good.

The Middle Line Is Above Love And Hatred

laitman_232_06Any type of relations between people, such as children’s groups, couples, working collectives, parties—any society is based on the middle line that reconciles the right and the left lines.

Correct connection can be only in the middle line. We can’t run away from our egoism and disconnect from it in anything. We also can’t just add the right line. We need to know how to do it; we need to learn to connect.

Most important is to know from the beginning that life is arranged according to the middle line. This is how it was created in nature, just look at the atom. This very first element of any matter consists of negative and positive particles, plus and minus and many neutral particles called neutrons. They balance protons and electrons, add weight, mass, and stability to them, due to which an atom can exist.

An atom exists only due to the fact that it has opposite and neutral particles. All of nature, still, vegetative, and animate is arranged according to the middle line. It wouldn’t be able to exist otherwise.

A human body is also built according to the same principle on its still, vegetative, and animate levels. It is only in the relationships between people that there is no middle line, and this was done deliberately so that we ourselves will do this work.

This is called the work of the Creator; after all, we just need to draw the upper force of nature to perform it. However, we become its partners in it and discover the method of the middle line. It turns out that we fill the part that is missing in nature.

A good state is always based on the correct combination of the right and left lines. Two opposite forces are required for the connection, bestowal and love, on the one hand, and hatred and rejection on the other hand, and we balance and connect them. Initially, one can’t exist without another because they come from above, from the same source.

Question: What does “balanced love and hatred” mean in human society where the strong exploit the weak? How is it possible to balance such a relationship?

Answer: The world seems this way if we look at it egoistically. If we don’t see the overall system in its real form where all elements complement each other at all levels, there is no justification for this world. We see only evil and wonder where the positive force is, where the Creator is.

If you don’t see the complete system, you always find yourself in its left line and don’t notice how the right line balances it. You need to be in the middle line and look from the higher state. The middle line is an upper degree, above the left and the right lines. The connection can be achieved only through the middle line.

The right and the left forces have existed in human society since ancient times and each time they move further apart. After all, both of these lines are egoistic, and egoism becomes more and more demanding with its development. This struggle won’t end. Therefore, we must learn to balance them and come to the middle line; each time it will again reveal to us this struggle and the possibility of reconciliation.

If people understand that to achieve the final goal and to advance in general is possible only in the middle line, they will perceive their opponents differently. If I see that everything negative and positive happens only in order to propel me to the goal, I will treat both states equally. I will use both as beneficial and thus I’ll place myself in the middle line so that “love will cover all transgressions.”

The best state is a correct combination of opposites. All the possible forms of reality should mutually complement each other. One can’t erase another or give it a place. Fulfillment is possible only in the middle line. The left and the right lines are not connected to each other; their connection is the revelation of the Creator.

Very soon, we will see different countries and governments in the world in the state of complete helplessness with the inability to reach any kind of connection and to do mutual work. It won’t be about friendship and connection anymore, but about the ability to somehow tolerate each other. There will be ultra-left parties on one side, ultra-right ones on the other side, and each family will split this way.

Why don’t people want to come together and start a family? It’s because they don’t see this connection between them that they used to have. Previously, the connection existed on the still, vegetative, and animate levels, so people used to get married, have children, and everything was fine. However, the moment we climbed a little to the human level, everything fell apart.

A person can’t tolerate anyone next to him and he divorces precisely because we’ve reached the human degree and the old connections stopped working. It is possible to connect on this degree only in the middle line. The wisdom of Kabbalah provides this method that is required now at all levels.

A Generation Of Fortune-Tellers And Soothsayers

Laitman_049_01Question: If we know from Kabbalah that prophecy is very harmful to the development of humanity because it limits it, why don’t the Kabbalists combat this phenomenon? On every television channel today you see fortune-tellers and astrologers.

Answer: Indeed. In the 21st century, on every television channel [in Israel], not only fortune-tellers appear, but also “grandmas” who read cards, throw beads and coins in the air, and whisper various incantations. Every year they produce astrological calendars with advice of what to do and not do is written for each one of the signs of the zodiac. And this is the 21st century!

But the worst thing is that all this is attributed to the wisdom of Kabbalah in order to raise the bar and sell it at a more expensive price, while none of this has anything to do with Kabbalah.

Question: Do you think it is necessary to make some campaign to explain this, or will it all disappear by itself?

Answer: No, Kabbalists cannot engage in public relations work. If I were to be fighting all the slanders about the wisdom of Kabbalah, I would not have enough time for anything else! There are billions of people in the world. If each one of them were to say half a word against the wisdom of Kabbalah, how would I be able to carry on public relations work with each one of them?

Their attitude toward Kabbalah comes from their limitations, from their inability to comprehend it easily. But we will still continue to develop, even though in comparison to the 20th century, this century will be darker and it will pass.

The Main Thing Is Not To Remain Indifferent

laitman_527_07Question: From the perspective of the wisdom of Kabbalah, is there any sense in millions of people reading the Torah? Does the Ohr Makif (Surrounding Light) work on them, or is this useless?

Answer: People receive and perceive either positive influences or negative influences from Kabbalists according to the manner in which they relate to them, in a good or hostile form.

Both a positive and a negative attitude are beneficial; the main thing is not to remain indifferent.

Therefore, it is preferable to relate to the wisdom of Kabbalah negatively than to remain indifferent because, in spite of everything, a person arouses negative forces this way that will lead him forward, even though in the opposite direction, and this road may go on for a few centuries, but he will discern his way back.

If a person does not react, but simply walks in place, even though he is not moving further away, there is no way of knowing when he will wise up. Therefore, it is useful to do something in any case.

Baal HaSulam writes that the movement of a person is independent of whether he yearns for the Creator or denies His existence because both the one force and the other force, in principle, act in the same direction.

New Life #392 – The Good Force And The Evil Force
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz


Question: All the religions present the world as being dominated by two forces: the force of good and the force of evil. That is how it feels to the common man. It seems to him that good and evil forces are at work on him. What is the good force that does everything good and what is the evil force that brings all the troubles?

Many dream of there being only one force in the world, the force of good, and generally don’t understand why the evil force exists. This split, the constant struggle between good and evil, between light and darkness, between destruction and construction, accompanies us all through life. Why is there a conflict between these two forces?

Answer: There is no conflict. We just think that good and evil forces exist, but there are no evil and good forces in nature. It is true that there are opposing forces: plus and minus, attraction and repulsion, light and darkness.

Without the two opposing forces, life could not exist, there would be no metabolism within the living body, there would be no connection between fundamental particles or between bodies in space, which connect them into a single whole.

Life is always based on the clash between forces and flows according to the “middle line” that connects them. Two opposing forces operate, and from the balance between them the next phase of a new life is born.

In other words, the opposing forces that exist within matter and create a particular harmony between them. So from the electrons and positrons, from the opposing forces that exist within the atom, whole atoms are built that become connected together into molecules through attraction. And within the molecules, the opposing forces can even determine what is good and what is harmful to the connection between them. So they attract, take in and absorb the materials that are beneficial to them and emit the harmful materials. That is how metabolism happens, life and evolution begin.

All of this happens through the correct integration between the two opposing forces. Without this, there is no development and no life. And without this, our universe could not evolve on the inanimate level and especially not on the vegetative level. In plants, there is a more complex integration of the opposing forces and on the animate level it is an even more complex integration.

A complex scrutiny of the definition of good and evil on all levels happens in the human brain and perception. Our intellect is based on a constant scrutiny of the struggle between the opposing forces and on the search for a form of connection that can bring maximal benefit.

It is not possible to use one force without the second force; it is possible only in the integration between them. That is how life is constructed. On the levels of the still, vegetative, and animate, this system works and develops excellently.

If sometimes we see natural disasters, this is only because we measure them with respect to us. However, in fact, the entire universe, the world, the still, vegetative, and animate levels of nature advance under the influence of the positive and negative forces that operate between them and promote their evolution.

All is good until we reach the humans. The two forces of good and evil, as we call them, are operable even on humanity. If we were to become aware of the program of nature and would protect the balance between the positive and negative forces, we would live in peace and quiet.

The problem is humanity has freedom of choice. They choose the balance between the positive and negative forces themselves, according to their desire. Here the origin of our ruined nature is revealed; it is because we make decisions more in favor of what is pleasant and comfortable for us instead of making the right decision.

We are more interested in what is profitable than in truth. So we begin to pave a curved path that doesn’t pass through the middle between the negative and positive force that should be equal in the correct integration between them to promote evolution. Instead, we constantly tend in the direction of what is comfortable to us at the expense of others.

After all, all of us are a part of integral nature and we need to maintain a general harmony with the world of the still, vegetative, and animate, evolving along with nature in the same direction. If, together with freedom of choice, we were to protect the balance between the two forces, the harmony between them, we would evolve correctly.

We would not allow ourselves to use the forces of nature more than we need for living in harmony between us and with the environment. Our lives would become easier and peaceful. We would get what is imperative for our existence from nature, and we would use the rest of the power for our internal development.

All of the problems of humanity started because we began to produce more than what is required for life. This is the critical point from which humanity began to self-destruct. From then, we departed from the balance of forces and began to turn them according to the desire of our ego.

This is the general picture: there is a positive force, a negative force, and we, humans, together with our egoism, are found between them. If we were to use these two forces to balance our lives and the ego that erupts in us, we would utilize them only for our internal spiritual growth; we would then rise to the next level, called the speaking level.

Our material lives, meaning life within our bodies on the animate level, with all that is required for our existence, food and family, would remain below, in a balanced form, in the state in which they need to be. And we would use our egoism to bring the two opposing forces into a balance between and to rise to a spiritual level, to spiritual life.
