The Only Educational Principle

Laitman_112Question: We are living in an ordinary world and our children go to kindergartens and schools. How should we educate our children? According to which principles and ideals? What is the basis for the right education?

Answer: There is one educational principle for all people and all religions: “love thy friend as thyself.” It is possible to fulfill this principle only according to the method of Kabbalah, which is what the wisdom of Kabbalah teaches.

Do you want your children to be happy? Educate them! And the educational work should be “chewed” and properly served to every individual, just as you serve a spoon of food to a baby and expect him to swallow.

Spiritual Anesthesia

Laitman_509Question: How is it possible to control the flow of thoughts?

Answer: It is not necessary to control anything; otherwise, a person would go crazy with all the thoughts. It is necessary to be locked onto one thought: “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35); I am connected to Him, and everything that I do in this world is so that I will not become detached from Him.

Comment: When you say this, I am immediately enveloped in serenity. You seem to be surrendering yourself to this stream without any resistance.

Answer: This is because there isn’t anything else. Surrender yourself, and that’s it! It is as if you were anesthetized.

Jews Are Rootless Cosmopolitans

Two MethodsQuestion: Why did they call the Jews “rootless cosmopolitans” in Russia?

Answer: Because in principle, this is exactly so! The Jews have an unconscious sense of “suspicion” in this world; there is no place in this world that they feel as their place because their “place” is in the spiritual world, meaning in the feeling of spirituality, the feeling of the Creator.

And while they haven’t achieved this, they feel insecure on the earth, the usual basis for all other peoples, the Earth, and suspended in the air; they don’t feel grounded. And they have no land, the existence of their country will be agreed to only if the Jews become a people. And for this, they must achieve unity, the awareness of interdependence, mutual responsibility, and love.

What Is Considered True Spiritual Work?

laitman_626Question: I have such a boss that I don’t have enough strength to justify the actions of the Creator according to the principle, “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35). I get angry at this “puppet” that is being managed by the Creator. What should I do?

Answer: Does this mean that you don’t identify your boss with the Creator? But you imagine that the Creator is in the boss and He is bothering you from there. What is He doing that for? In order to bring up in you certain characteristics that are close to spiritual properties.

Question: And if I am happy to go to work, then it wouldn’t be considered work?

Answer: Neither this nor that is considered spiritual work. Spiritual work is overcoming an egoistic desire with the help of the Upper Light.

The Law Of Nature Development

laitman_929Question: What is the law of development of nature? How is it formulated?

One Soul

laitman_944Question: What is one soul?

Answer: One soul refers to the fact that we are all parts of one desire, which according to its volume and its power resembles the Creator. Initially we are in an egoistic state, which means that we want everything only for ourselves.

We all have to correct ourselves so that we will want everything with the intention of in order to bestow. To whom? If the desire is one and we are all part of one desire, we have to bestow unto the Creator.

When we give and bestow unto the Creator, the Creator gives and bestows unto us, and we become partners and connect in mutual bestowal to each other which is called Dvekut (adhesion).

This is actually the state that we have to attain. This is the reason that all of mankind, being parts of one soul, need to help each other to reveal it, attain it, and reach the state of eternity, wholeness, and infinity, just like our Creator.

Why Do Unpleasant Thoughts Appear?

laitman_232_02Question: How is it possible to control thoughts? Why do unpleasant thoughts appear?

Answer: Unpleasant thoughts intentionally appear within us so that we can easily move forward.

We have a small desire to receive on the animal level, a desire to feel comfortable at every moment in our lives. When unpleasant thoughts take us over, we want to be freed from them very much, and we do everything possible for this to happen.

The Creator, who sends us these types of thoughts, can manage our movement this way and move us forward.

If we shape the right thoughts within us – and what motivates us is yearning for the Creator through the group, through union, through love of friends – then there will not be any need to send us negative thoughts from above, and we move forward comfortably.

In a manner like this, we can supervise ourselves and constantly advance with the help of friends, study, and the like. That is how we move faster and faster, for speed is unlimited. Everything depends on us.
