Kabbalistic Friendship

Walking through the WallQuestion: Can ordinary friendship interfere with Kabbalistic friendship?

Answer: Ordinary friendship doesn’t interfere with Kabbalistic friendship, but it undergoes very serious changes since the mutual goal, means, and attitudes are completely changed.

Two people who were previously friends in a normal physical friendship become completely different friends in spiritual life.

What is Working In Three Lines?

laitman_600_02Question: What is working in three lines?

Answer: Working in three lines is the complete mutual connection between your inclinations.

The left line is the egoistic desire to receive, to enjoy. By ascending above it, a person restricts its use.

Working in the right line means receiving the upper Light and using it inside yourself as the attribute of bestowal.

The middle line is the combination of the right and left lines inside you. In the right combination, you can use your egoism only to the extent that it is aimed at bestowal.

Question: What does it mean to acquire the letters of the spiritual work?

Answer: It means to acquire a collection of correct relationships between the friends in the group.

Two Stages Of Spiritual Work

laitman_939_02Question: What is the work of the Creator? Does the Creator work instead of me?

Answer: Yes, the Light of the Creator is working on us; it changes our nature. We only ask Him to do it.

Our work consists of two parts. The first one is physical when we try to connect into a ten and organize ourselves into the correct structure of connections between us in order to create a field that is ready for the Creator to work in.

The second part is our plea to Him: “Come and create the correct connection between us. We did all we could between us.” Our work is in these two stages.

New Life #841 – Israel’s Enemies Throughout History

New Life #841 – Israel’s Enemies Throughout History
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Why can’t we in Israel live in peace with our neighbors unless we establish internal peace in Israel?

Only if we live in peace between us will there be peace in Israel and in the whole world. The hatred people feel toward Israel will not cease and there will not be peace unless we want to be as one man in one heart.

Who Can Consider Himself A Kabbalist?

laitman_243_01Question: I have undergone a transformation and I consider myself a Kabbalist. Is that possible?

Answer: First, one must determine and define who is a Kabbalist.

A Kabbalist is a person who is connected to a group of Kabbalists and who in the connection with his friends, discovers the Creator. The mutual attainment of the Creator in the group enables him to be a Kabbalist who receives the revelation of the upper force.

If you have undergone a certain personal experience, I must tell you that unfortunately it is only an illusion and a misconception.

Educate Children To Be Human

laitman_604_03Question: How can a woman determine what is necessary for the home and family and what is superfluous?

Answer: If a woman works on herself correctly and understands a little about psychology and education, then she will not behave irrationally. She needs to think about how to raise her children so that they will be human, that they will be able to continue on their own after that.

Everything is rapidly changing today, and by the time those children grow up, there will be completely different professions and occupations. The most important thing is to educate them to be human so that they will always relate to life, to others, and to themselves correctly.

Help Create A Family

laitman_622_02Question: Is correction possible with asceticism and isolation? If not, then why is this so widespread?

Answer: This is widespread because people are used to this form of life. In ancient times, they behaved this way to allegedly “kill” the flesh. But this does not correspond  to Kabbalistic principles.

The mortification of the flesh doesn’t come from and has nothing to do with Kabbalah. Therefore, according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, one must not remain single.

We need to help single people organize their lives. By the way, helping to establish a family is a great Mitzvah (commandment). Therefore, the friends in a group, especially women, should help each other to create families.
