Blessings For Great Victory Day!

laitman_539Dear Friends,

The great holiday of May 9 is a special date for us. This is the day of the great victory over the most evil forces in the history of humanity. The same forces that wanted to enslave the world tried to accommodate their religion to the policies that were introduced by them. A terrible darkness enveloped Europe and didn’t let any one of the peoples live.

We must not forget it. We must celebrate the day of victory every year. It is not important if it is celebrated in different nations at different times as the date of freedom for every nation from slavery. May 9 is a big holiday for us. We hope that we understand what the evil forces celebrate in our world, how the people of Israel exactly can limit and isolate them from humanity and make a happy, secure, and safe future. This depends only on us. So for us May 9 is not just the day of the end of a great and terrible war, but also a reminder that it is up to us to prevent future wars. And this is in our power, the wisdom of Kabbalah makes this possible for us. It is only up to us to learn the method and to realize it in life.

I wish for all of you a good mood, success and happiness! Together with this, don’t forget that today we are facing the same problems that also existed many years ago and it is up to us to solve them quickly. All this begins from tomorrow but for today, I bless everyone on the great May 9 holiday!

The Nuances Of The Term “Friend”

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Why do Hebrew speaking Kabbalah students call each other “companion, comrade” (“Haver in Hebrew) and not “friend” (“Yedid” in Hebrew)?

Answer: In Hebrew, there are two terms: a “comrade, companion” (Haver) and a “friend” (Yedid). But a “friend” is a buddy, a pal, while the word “companion” is derived from the Hebrew word “Hibur” or connection, link.

Question: Why is it said, “And you shall love your neighbor” (Leviticus 19:18), meaning that one shall love the other and not the “companion, comrade”?

Answer: This is because a comrade or companion is someone who is close to you ideologically. In Hebrew there are many synonyms for the word “friend,” which are used according to one’s relationship with another person.

Hibur” (connection) is above them all, it expresses a mutual aspiration towards the goal for the sake of which two people connect with each other. “Neighbor” is a person who is not particularly close to you, but you have a particular connection with him. The “other” is someone outside of your ego whom you want to draw closer to yourself. A “friend” is a pal, a buddy, and there is also an acquaintance (“Mekir” in Hebrew).

All of these words as if illuminate the level of closeness between you and another person. The wisdom of Kabbalah is a unique language, everything that relates to the spiritual ascent of a person is divided into thousands of levels, and everything else is not.

Comment: But Rabbi Akiva in his famous saying, “And you shall love your neighbor as yourself” used the word “neighbor” and not the word “companion, comrade.”

Answer: Once you love a person he can already be called a “companion, comrade” for this is a higher level.

Question: What is the meaning of the saying, “And you shall love your neighbor as yourself”?

Answer: To the same degree that my ego loves itself, I must rise above it to love the other.

A Question From Prison

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: I will spend the rest of my life in jail. I’m trying to forget what I did, but I cannot. What should I do?

Answer: You don’t need to forget anything. You shouldn’t think about it at all. Our students teach the method of integral education in prisons. Try to tune into what is being taught and fully immerse yourself into this wisdom.

You will rise to the next level of your existence and will not feel that you are in prison. On the contrary, you will feel free and that the rest of the world is imprisoned.

I advise you to do this. This is an amazing state.

You will thank the Creator for having committed all these misdeeds. At the end of the day, it was not you who did it, but the Creator who thereby gave you this opportunity to now calmly attain the upper world.

Therefore, you can transform your prison sentence into true freedom.

Comment: Is Judaism #Racism?

#PressFreedom With man’s egoistic nature, media cannot be independent, but only corrupt. We need to teach “Love your neighbor as yourself.”


US demands that #UN stop being biased toward Israel! But this depends only on the Jews’ unity, which will show the world how to unite.

#PressFreedom the media is responsible for our ugly world–they’re educating the masses, with the elites pulling the strings!

A Sense Of Humor In Men And Women

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Who has a more developed sense of humor, men or women?

Answer: Men do because men consist of two parts, male and female. Whereas women consist only of the female part. Women’s imagination  is directed towards corporeality, while men’s goes beyond it.

Therefore, men are great dreamers, romantics, writers, good chefs, chess players, and so on. How many women work in high tech, where new discoveries and inventions are being made? Not many. Mostly these are men. But women prevail in other things. And we must accept this division with respect because one cannot exist without the other. So take care of both women and men.

A Married Woman

laitman_627_2Torah, Deuteronomy 22:22: If a man is found lying with a married woman, even both of them shall die the man lying with the woman and the woman. So shall you clear away the evil from Israel.

The man symbolizes intention and the woman—the desire. A person begins to work with a desire that he cannot correct. Therefore, the entire process is dead and doesn’t have any continuation in the future.

Question: Yet, she is a married woman, does it mean that she is someone’s desire?

Answer: But a person hasn’t yet clarified whether this desire applies to him. After all, the whole analysis happens gradually, and whatever is bad on one degree, can be good on another degree. There the opportunity is already given to fulfill, investigate, and correct everything.

A married woman that is unfaithful to her husband is a desire that can’t be corrected with the help of the intention, with which a person is now working.

Let’s say I have a certain desire and the intention doesn’t match it. It is either less, more, or totally different in character, while between them there must be a clear match, which is determined by the upper Light at the degree above these men and women. Such a state must be preceded by a so-called spiritual marriage contract.

New Life #662 – Extremism Or Mutual Complementation
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz


Instead of arguments between the left and the right wings, we need to learn where nature is leading us. The solution must include everyone. We connect above our personal views, and the more they differ, the more intense and more qualitative the connection between them is.
