How Do You Become Devoted To The Wisdom Of Kabbalah?

Laitman_912Question from Facebook: You said in one of your lessons that you all your time with your teacher Rabash. I was very impressed by this, but, at the same time, I also felt afraid. I feel that I will not be able to devote myself to the wisdom of Kabbalah like that.

Answer: Everyone acts according to his inclination. I knew that if I found information about the meaning of life, I would totally devote myself to studying it. It was when I heard Rabash’s first words that I felt that this was what I had wanted to hear for 30 years until I found him.

If you accurately explain to a person the reason for the creation of the world, what we should do, what we should reach, and you bring examples and present everything in a very logical manner, there is no reason to refute it.

Question: Does every individual look for a teacher according to the nature of his soul? How does that happen?

Answer: I looked for everything in a purely logical manner. I was never interested in assumptions and religious tales, nor in mysticism or different philosophies. I was only interested in pure accurate logic.

There was a shocking contradiction between a person’s externality and his internal world until I finally understood what a wise Kabbalist and a real Jewish sage means compared to the external impression that he made on people who didn’t know about his internal filling; it was amazing.

Every person has a destiny, a measure, a place, a day, and a time in this history. Perhaps I had to do that in our generation and you will do it in the next generation or in another time or another dimension.

In any case, everyone will fulfill his destiny and will totally resemble everyone else. We will all reach the same upper level!

Love Is The Fulfillment Of The Desires Of The Other

laitman_613Question: Where is the boundary between the spiritual and material worlds? How do we cross it? Does this boundary exist?

Answer: The boundary between the spiritual and material worlds is inside a person. We can consider and measure everything only relative to a person. Therefore, our attitude to the world and to life is very subjective; while I live, the universe shines.

But if I exit my egoism that psychologically is my nature and rise above it, I begin to feel the entire universe in a completely different sense. Because from the inside, I already see everything in the Light of bestowal, love, and altruism. My sensory organs perceive absolutely different characteristics and values, and therefore, the world looks completely different to me.

Question: Why is this called love?

Answer: Because I want to do good to my neighbor. I don’t know what is called love in our world, but in the wisdom of Kabbalah, love refers to such an attitude to the neighbor when you want to fulfill any of his desires. To do what he wants means to love him.

By feeling the neighbor as yourself, you reach your final correction and exit the framework of our world into the framework of the next world, the next degree of attainment and cognition.

Comment: There is an interesting phenomenon in physics that is called synergy, when the system is not equal to the sum of its subsystems. This, to some extent, is reminiscent of what Kabbalah says about the amazing connection, when people, through their unity, begin to feel like one single whole, which no longer divides into separate particles.

My Comment: The collective is much bigger than the sum of its parts.

“A Bastard Shall Not Enter The Assembly Of The Lord”

003.jpgTorah, Deuteronomy 23:3: A bastard shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even the tenth generation shall not enter the assembly of the Lord.

A person will never be able to make such a correction that isn’t aimed at the integration of the common soul. As there used to be one common soul and one Masach for all desires and each desire had its own Masach, so again they must coincide and reconnect precisely to the same system.

If a bastard appears, that is a wrong Masach for the wrong desire, then there is discord in the entire system, and it leads to a cancerous disease, just like in our world because this must be corrected.

A “bastard” is the one who was born from the incorrect use of Malchut (desire) and the Masach because the intention—being in principle, directed toward bestowal – wasn’t precisely selected for his Malchut. In this case, it’s just a distorted detail of the common soul.

This phenomenon can be seen not only on the human level, but also on the animate and vegetative levels.

Are We Guarded From Above? Part 9

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How does a Mezuzah (doorpost) symbolize the spiritual force that protects the soul?

Answer: A Mezuzah has four components, which together represent the entire HaVaYaH: Yod-Key-Vav-Key, in other words, the upper system. A person, wishing to resemble the Creator, enters this system of complete HaVaYaH. It is then his home, the mother’s womb, in which he develops.

The system HaVaYaH symbolizes the loving attitude toward us from this upper force, the Creator. Attaining love of others, we resemble the Creator who loves His creation and unite with Him in a mutual embrace.

Question: If He loves me, why does the Creator not embrace me now?

Answer: Because you do not correspond to Him, you disregard Him, you are opposite to the upper force of the system, and therefore undesirable.

The Creator relates to everyone with love, but His goal is to bring everyone to attainment of the upper force, in order for all to know the Creator, to reveal Him and become equal to Him. In this way we stop being puppets without free will, not understanding anything in our own lives, and raise ourselves to a higher level, eternal and absolute.

Question: But what is the purpose of the commandment to put a Mezuzah in the doorway?

Answer: It has to remind us that there is the upper force on which we are dependent and we need to resemble it, behave as it does. As it is merciful, so we should to be merciful, as it is compassionate, so we should be compassionate. In the end, all is very simple.

Question: So the Mezuzah symbolizes the force of love and positive connection between us?

Answer: Just as any other commandment in the physical world, it directs us to the need to follow it spiritually, internally.

The Creator “Sells” Himself To The Created Beings

laitman_610_2Question: Does egoism manage me and I am operated by it, or does the Creator manage me and I (my egoism) am operated by Him?

Answer: It isn’t that simple. It is easy to say that the Creator manages me and that I am operated by Him, but in fact, I have to build a kind of a connection mechanism with the friends through which we can manage the Creator.

It says that the Creator “sells” Himself to the created beings, just as parents are totally dependent on their children.

“Count On Me, I Will Do It, I Will Not Retreat!”

laitman_202_0In the News (The Hill): From President Trump’s inaugural address:

“Count On Me, I Will Do It, I Will Not Retreat!”

“We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

“I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.”

My Comment: Trump is, of course, a tough man and his attitude to the world is far from sentimental, so he will try to keep his promises in very serious and decisive ways. His policy will be mitigated, but the people behind him are basically greatly interested in making America great again. Even the billionaires already understand that otherwise their money will be worthless and they will lose everything.

Question: Does this mean that this is actually a carefully calculated move?

Answer: Of course. The Americans don’t give or do anything for no reason! Behind Trump there are the Rothschild, Rockefeller, and Baruch families that have had the world in their hands very tightly for the last 500 to 600 years. There are such forces that agree on and know what should be done since otherwise they will be lost!

There are many unemployed people in America today, drug abuse is widespread, people are perplexed, families are falling apart, robots are filling the world, and industry is disappearing, no one knows where to, which means that there is no future. Obama let millions of radical Islamist immigrants into the US, and this is the reason that Trump will have to clean up all that. It seems that he is ready to start doing so, and those who have elected him realize that they can bet that he will.

Question: What does the election of a president such as Trump indicate?

Answer: That we have to urgently change the world! The time has come! Even those who are at the top realize that otherwise it would be impossible to do anything. We have to give the reins to serious people, and Trump understands what he is doing. Such practical people do not underestimate anything.

Question: Do you think that we are living in good times?

Answer: We are living in wonderful times when the world is becoming aware of the despair and the dead end it has reached, but no one knows what should be done.

Trump is determined and says: “I will fix things, I will do it and everything will be done!” but people will soon discover that the only way to correct the world is by educating people! We have to build plants for “correcting people.” There robots are manufactured, while here we are manufacturing human beings. People should be educated and robots should work since that is what they were made for. We are entering a spiritual world and we will engage only in spiritual work, only in our correction. There is nothing we can do beyond that.

Comment: Let’s hope that your words will enter people’s hearts.

My Comment: This is desirable, of course, but if it doesn’t happen now, it will happen in a couple of years, and after some more blows. So it is better that it happens as soon as possible.

New Life #658 – Beyond Right And Left
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe


Today both the right and the left are capitalistic approaches. Only after we learn how the system of nature is constructed, how the left and the right are integrated and how the balance between them develops life ahead, can we prosper.
