My Thoughts On Twitter, 3/4/17


Anti-Trump & anti-Israel Jews will feel greater antisemitism, which will teach them to take the right path and not betray their own people.

For years I felt how American Jews reject Israel, and it was obvious to me that by this they will evoke hatred toward themselves.

Antisemitism in America doesn’t depend on Trump, but on the need of the nations to unite. The time is now, and the Jews have to begin.

Torah For All

laitman_234Question: Why do you teach the Torah on the Internet to everyone if it is so hard to understand?

Answer: Everyone should know the Torah and yearn to fulfill it because everyone must reach the level of Moses.

On the other hand, corporeal differences such as nationality, race, color, or sex are meaningless. A person’s soul does not reflect his unique corporeal characteristics in any way, and it makes no difference what his religion, nationality, culture, and so on are.

Whoever Wants To Hear Me Will

laitman_284_03Question: Are you the only person who was given permission from Above to teach the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: I teach and whoever wants to hear me will. I don’t have an authorization that was sent from the “spiritual office,” which certifies that I am the only one authorized to teach the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Comment: It would be nice if there were such a certificate.

My Response: That’s not true. This would oblige people, so where would their free choice be?

Altruism – The Hidden Program Of Nature

Laitman_632_3From the “Crisis and its Solution” (Lecture in Arosa 2006)

Only by interacting as a single whole can cells exist, develop, and multiply. The law of altruistic interaction functions in every created being except man. Man is given freedom of will to realize the need for altruism and to observe this general law of nature.

Seeing how animals devour each other, it is hard for us to call them altruists. Everything created: inanimate matter, plants, animals, and humans are complete egoists. So, where do we see that altruism is a program of nature?

But when it comes to the internal program embedded in every creature, we can say that all of nature is built according to the law of mutual help and support between everyone. We just look at nature through our egoistic eyes and because of that we blame it to the extent of our own depravity.

If we assess nature not from the negative side, from our egoism, but from the side of a positive systematic approach, we will see that all its systems work properly. Instead of asserting that “all devour all,” we can say that “each exists for others.”

Due to the fact that one becomes food for another, as it usually happens in nature, each degree exists in order to sustain the degree above it, and it continues for the higher degrees. And for whom was man created? His mission is to make his desire to enjoy “food” for a higher degree, for the desire to bestow.

It is difficult to realize that the law of nature is altruism, because it doesn’t manifest itself openly. We don’t see kind, altruistic connections between all parts of nature. On the contrary, we see egoistic connections where each one cares only about its own benefit and devours others.

It happens this way on all the levels: inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human. It could be concluded that overall, total egoism, the desire to enjoy, is the law of nature, rather than the desire to bestow and altruism.

But with the development of science, intelligence, and human society, we gradually begin to discover that connection between all parts of nature is more important than the existence of each of them. That is, the central points of creation are not the clumps of matter, but the spaces between them. Exactly in these spaces the most important things happen, but we don’t know about it.

Connections between separate elements of creation are more important than these elements. After all, the elements consist of the simple desire to enjoy, and inside the connection between them is all the energy and matter. There actually is the true reality that we are not yet able to comprehend.

A man, who is at the center of creation is the most important part, that is, the connections between people. Through our unity, we assure all of nature and lead to the fact that all other parts of nature are pacified and establish good connections between them.

New Life #414 – The Institution Of Marriage Today

New Life #414 – The Institution Of Marriage Today
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe


What happened to the institution of marriage that it is disintegrating? What attitude we should develop as a result of our commitment to marriage and can spiritual connection improve our relations?

In the past a person was committed to marriage in order to live a normal life, but today it is not the case. A couple needs to build the connection between them before the wedding, after the commitment of marriage, they stop.

The institution of marriage today requires re-examination. It can continue to exist only if we add a spiritual value to it. A spiritual married life means an internal commitment to provide each other with spiritual support.
