Why Are The Laws Of Humanity Hidden From Us?

laitman_281_01Question: Do clear laws exist for mutual cooperation between people, as they do for the laws of physics?

Answer: Such laws exist, but they are hidden from us. In every physical system, a switch exists between its elements to maintain balance, its working state, and so forth. Precise formulas also exist for preserving the system of human society. There is a general system of control.

The first articles by Rabash can be used as an example; in them it is said:

  • You must be higher than others,
  • You must be lower than others,
  • You must be equal to others,
  • You must be concerned about the existence of an intermediary component.

This is the entire law.

There is nothing else besides the laws of switching of people in a group, a group of ten! This is the main law of nature from which it is possible to derive all the rest of the laws.

Question: Why did people first begin to discover the physical laws, but were not concerned about discovering the laws of human connection first?

Answer: It is because the ego repels people from the laws of human connections. And it is the opposite for the laws of nature; it attracts people. Helped by knowing the laws of nature, a person can influence, manage, and control! But the laws of human nature say that a person must be equal with everyone, he must be concerned about everyone.

A person is interested in everything except in building the right mutual connection. `But the human, societal system is the highest system that exists in nature. If you balance it and make order in it, within it, the person begins to feel the next level of creation.

All the more so, for correction to happen it is enough to build the right connections on the level of a group of ten. With less than a group of ten, it is difficult to do this. With more than a group of ten, it is impossible because the focus is dispersed. Ten people is the optimal situation. We were created such that a group of ten is the maximal condition required for us, like in mathematics.

Question: Why is this hidden from us? Why do we know all the laws of nature on the levels of the still, vegetative, and animate, but we have not yet discovered the laws of human society?

Answer: The laws are discovered according to the degree of our development. A person who is not developed is not ready to discover these laws, just as it is impossible to talk with a small child about the discoveries of Tesla.

Besides that, a lot depends on the perception of the person. For one person, human relationships present no difficulty; for another person, this is a closed subject. A person is generally not interested in this aspect of life until he begins to study the wisdom of Kabbalah. Within the wisdom of Kabbalah, he discovers his relationships with the Creator.

Only after that does a person gradually begin to feel that there are all kinds of mutual relationships between people. This understanding comes through the upper world.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 164

laitman_281_02Question: Does a person feel that he is alone in the upper spiritual world, or is he in contact with other souls?

Answer: It is so different from our feelings that it is impossible to describe. The upper world is perceived through the Creator the way that we perceive the Creator through the unity between us.

Question:  Could you reveal the role of a Kabbalist in this world? How should we relate to people around us when we receive information and an opportunity to correct ourselves from the Creator? Is our mission only to correct ourselves, or does it include the correction of the world around us?

Answer: A person must first read the basics of the wisdom of Kabbalah in order to understand this.

Sex Is Important

laitman_543_02Question from Facebook: Why are people so interested in sex and in the mutual relations between the two sexes? It seems that this is the only thing people are interested in.

Answer: They say that love and hunger make the world go round. If hunger no longer manages the world because there is actually enough food for everyone, what is left which can fill a person is love.

A person’s desire is to enjoy. It is the essences of his existence. This is how we are programmed. If we could turn off this program inside us, the world would be totally different. Radio, TV, sports, arts, science, everything would be totally different.

Sex is a person’s greatest desire. We cannot even imagine how everything that we do is actually subconsciously sex-oriented. Everything that we do stems from our internal sexual inclination. It is the basis of our behavior.

What is more, it isn’t about the kind of sex that we understand as corporeal coupling but about a yearning for a filling by something that is opposite from me, just like a plus yearns for a minus. All of a person’s thoughts are absolutely sexually directed.

What do we mean by sex? On the one hand there is the desire, the need (even in food), and, on the other hand, the filling. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, sex is referred to as Zivug de Hakaa (mating).

So it all depends on the level at which we examine this concept. On the physiological level of the corporeal bodies, we call it sex; whereas, on the lower level of the still or vegetative nature or the higher level of spirituality, it is called coupling.

If a person who knows nothing about the wisdom of Kabbalah begins to read Kabbalah books, he comes across many sexual concepts such as: coupling, upper kiss, lower kiss, practically the Kama Sutra.

It is actually because sex is at the basis of our desire that the wisdom of Kabbalah refers to it in such direct, very accurate, and correct language. If you wish to read a good sexual novel, you can read the The Study of the Ten Sefirot.

Two Levels Of The Torah

laitman_555Question: If Moses wrote the Torah, why is it said that the Creator looked into the Torah at the time He created the worlds?

Answer: In fact, the Torah is the movement of the desire that was created opposite of the Creator toward complete resemblance to Him.

So when the Creator “decided” to create the creature, as we say in corporeal language, He first had to create it as His opposite as well as to create a complete mechanism through which the creature would move toward resembling the Creator.

With this intention, He seemingly wrote the Torah, a system of commands and instructions that must be realized by the desire that was created by Him. That is how He brings the desire He created to greater and greater resemblance with Him. Moses wrote the Torah himself, but not from the point of view of management by the Creator because that Torah remains in the head of the world of Ein Sof (Infinity).

For Moses, it was recorded in the head of the world of Atzilut as an activity. So it is talking about the same thing, but on different levels.

New Life 395 – Luck, Fate And Angels

New Life 395 – Luck, Fate And Angels
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

How should one relate to the concept of luck and fate and how can everyone transform his life into an opportunity to achieve goodness?

Nothing is accidental in nature. From the Big Bang to the present moment, everything is managed according to fixed laws. Fate is a type of chain of situations that a person must go through from the beginning of life to its end.

Everyone has an opportunity to change his attitude toward what is happening to him and feel that everything is good. Everything in our lives is an opportunity to change our hatred into love. You begin to realize and see that this is so. Good and evil don’t exist. Bad is what is bad for others and good is what is good for others. “And you shall love your friend” (Leviticus 19:18). Nothing is bad except unfounded hatred and there is no good but brotherly love.

“Luck” consists of forces that reach a person, “fluid” from above, which arouse him to become balanced with others. If a person knows how to receive this correctly, this luck is felt as good to him, and if not, then it is bad.

The wisdom of connection teaches a person how to prepare himself to accept all events in life correctly. And what are angels? Angels are forces that influence me. An example is the force of gravity. Destructive angels are forces that give life all kinds of slaps and upsets and it is up to me to correct myself through them.

Essentially, correction is the formation of a good and balanced relationship, “And you shall love your friend as yourself.” Good angels bring love of others closer; evil angels pull one back toward egoism. Even demons and spirits are forces.

It is impossible to see them, one sees only the result of their influence. We must learn to manage them.
