Invitation To Reveal The Torah

laitman_276_01Shavuot is the holiday of the giving and receiving of the Torah. This is a very important day because the Torah is everything! The Torah is a system in which we exist, a “matrix,” from which we can’t exit. It is written in The Book of Zohar that the Torah was created even before the creation of the world. The Creator was looking into the Torah when He was creating the world.

We need to understand what this means. The Torah is a program, a scheme of the whole of reality, an engine, thanks to which this reality exists and unfolds from the beginning to the end.

In other words, the Torah is not a book that we can pull from the shelf, read, and understand, but a matrix, a world one can enter and reveal the system of the whole of reality. In this way, it is possible to understand how it lives and develops, how it controls us, and how we depend on it.

It also has a special element that is called a person’s freedom of will, thanks to which we can influence our destiny if we want to receive the Torah. However, on the part of the system, the giving of the Torah always occurs.

That is, the system is built in such a way that it realizes without asking for our agreement. But at the same time, we can become included in it, and in proportion to our conformity with the system, we begin to study it, understand and interact with it to give and receive according to its laws. Then, through our participation, we are even able to accelerate the development of the whole of reality by adding positive forces that act in the system of the Torah.

The giving of the Torah means that the system is ready for us to know it. And the receiving of the Torah is our gradual entrance into the system through 125 degrees and its completion by our positive actions. Thanks to this, we are able to be called “a man” and considered as fulfilling the Torah.

The laws of the system that we accept are called commandments. To the extent that we correct ourselves, we become more and more included in the system.

Initially our desire to enjoy is created as opposite to the system, so we cannot positively influence it. But once we gradually correct our 613 desires to bestowal for the sake of bestowal, and later even to reception for the sake of bestowal, we become the sons of the Torah.

All this huge system is hidden from us so far, but we are getting closer to it. We received the permission, agreement, and invitation to get closer and even to become included and take part in the work of the system. Although, we have not yet started the real work, day after day, we make steps that bring us closer to it. This is a big deal and a huge privilege.

Therefore, the holiday of the Giving of the Torah is so important to us; after all, we celebrate that we are given the opportunity to approach the system of true reality and to participate in the work of the force called the Creator, the general system of upper worlds. Let’s hope for success!

The Laws Of Spiritual Space

laitman_222_0Question: Are the universal laws of the wisdom of Kabbalah applicable in our earthly sphere or do they operate only in the spiritual universe?

Answer: The laws that Kabbalah tells us about operate only in the spiritual sphere. Their impact on our world is absolute but only through the upper Sefirot.

If we begin to fulfill the laws of the spiritual space, we will simultaneously influence the laws of our world.

To The Dialog Between Kabbalah And Science

Dr. Michael LaitmanComment: I believe that the development of a dialog between Kabbalah and science is a path that science, which is now in crisis, should follow. Kabbalah not only opens a second wind, but is the basis from which science originated and where, most likely, it will come.

Answer: I am sure that Kabbalah and science will come together.

We need to bring Kabbalah to the level of practical use. Then people will find complete interaction between science and Kabbalah so that mutual descriptions of both science and Kabbalah simultaneously and in the same language will become possible.

I would like for this to become possible so that one can describe classical physics, chemistry, biology, zoology, and other sciences in one language together with spiritual levels. All of this is possible, but we need to work for this.

Nature is one. We just need to find a language for its general description. This is still ahead of us.

Sufism Is Islamic Kabbalah

laitman_533_02Question: Are there common points of contact between Kabbalah and Sufism?

Answer: Sufism is Islamic Kabbalah. The Sufis follow the same principles as Kabbalists. Although Sufism is much simpler, everything that is written in its true sources is taken from Kabbalah.

A Kabbalist’s Reactions

Laitman_066_03Question: What determines your reactions to external irritants?

Answer: The fact is that Kabbalists have absolutely no patience and they struggle to restrain themselves. There are too many various internal and external irritants around them.

It is very hard for a Kabbalist to remain tranquil; although, on the other hand, he finds it. But this requires practice and the correct intentions.

Faith According To Kabbalah

laitman_240Question: Faith above reason is the fundamental concept in Kabbalah. But the concept of faith traditionally belongs to religions. What is faith in Kabbalah?

Answer: Faith is defined as the quality of bestowal in Kabbalah. This is not what is accepted in religions. All Kabbalistic terms originated several thousand years prior to the appearance of religions.

Jewish religion came into being 2,000 years ago. Before that, the Jews only had Kabbalah and people existed sensing two worlds simultaneously: our world and the upper world. Later on, they fell from sensing the upper world and remained sensing only our world, and what resulted became known as Judaism, religion.

The Jewish nation lost the condition of “Love your neighbor as yourself” and began to engage in the routine performance of the commandments – Mitzvot. From that, Christianity appeared with all of its branches and later on, Islam. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam do not belong to Kabbalah.

Kabbalah explores the upper world and brings a person to its revelation while living in this world. That is why in Kabbalah, there is no need to believe in anything. In Kabbalah, faith is called the quality of bestowal, the quality of influencing others.
