My Thoughts On Twitter, 8/7/17


Great things happen to those who don’t stop believing, trying, learning, and being grateful. Roy T. Bennett #MondayMotivation #quote

#Av 15. Adam’s soul breaking resulted in hatred among its parts and all global problems. Reuniting them brings happiness, love, serenity.

#Jewish #Israel All in one day, from the most problematic date for Israel, 9 of Av, to the day of perfection, love and unity—#TubeAv

#LIFE is a picture that you sense in the present, in which you “live,” like in a film that you cannot escape. If you want it, ask for it!

#People are forces that must learn how to connect. The connection between them already exists—all that’s left is to reveal it!

“Man, Woman, and the Creator between them.” He sows discord between them so they can reveal Him and grow closer together. #relationships

Tu B’Av is a celebration of #love—built above hatred, above the ruin of the Temple of love, to reach complete love despite the hatred.

New Life 864 – Our Approach To Life: Being A Super Hero

New Life 864 – Our Approach To Life: Being A Super Hero
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Why are we attracted to super heroes characters? Who is a true super hero and what are the hidden forces in each of us?
The wisdom of Kabbalah enables us to reveal the forces of love and giving, to reveal the upper world, and to fly in this entire realm.

Can Animals Feel The Creator?

laitman_547.05Question: Are intelligent life forms, different from humans, like dolphins, elephants, and so forth, able to feel the higher force, the Creator?

Answer: No, they cannot. These are not intelligent life forms; rather, they have an instinctive form of existence. Does a person in our world act in an intelligent life way? A person in our world acts purely according to natural instincts, no different from animals.

Question: Why is a person always offended by hearing those words?

Answer: It is because the words belittle him to the level of a beast. A person thinks that he is on a higher level, above the level of a beast, but he acts worse than animals do. There is no part of creation that harms all of nature, himself, and those around him, like a human does.

The Notion Of Time

laitman_760.5Question: Is the notion of time subjective or objective?

Answer: Time exists only in our internal perception; there is no time in spirituality.

In spirituality time is perceived as the number of states one passed through. If I have not exerted toward any spiritual development since this moment, I have not lived this year and I have zero time.

The Spiritual World—An Eternal State

laitman_744Question: In spirituality certain events happen after others. Is there time in spirituality after all?

Answer: No. Events happen in strict succession in spirituality, as chains of cause and effect, which is called time. But this is not time that is measured by a clock. It is time measured by the number of actions. The more actions there are, the more rapidly time passes.

Question: What does Kabbalah say about the possibility of movement in time?

Answer: A person manages advancement in time. Time itself doesn’t exist. According to Einstein’s theory, time depends on the axis in which you exist. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, we ourselves determine these axes; therefore, time depends on us.

Question: Is it possible to go back to the past?

Answer: No. It is only possible to act so that the past, present, and future will stop existing for you.

Question: And what is left then?

Answer: A wonderful eternal state remains.

Why Are Only The Chosen Ones Engaged In The Spiritual Work?

laitman_624.05Each and every one is committed to the labor of raising ever higher the living standard of the world society, so all the people in the world will enjoy their lives and will feel more and more happiness.(Baal HaSulam, The Writings of the Last Generation)

Baal HaSulam does not mean Hollywood joys but a real filling of a person that will become possible for everyone.

Comment: It feels like these words of Baal HaSulam come from the Creator.

My Comment: Of course, because he exposes everything from his attainment.

Question: He writes that not everybody is supposed to be engaged in spiritual work but only the chosen people. Why?

Answer: Because the spiritual system consists of 600,000 souls and their various parts, and there is no way to make everyone the same. Each of us is a part of the common soul called “Adam,” and each feels it through his part. In the end, we will all attain it but everyone proceeding from his primordial root.

There are souls that belong to the head of the common soul, and there are those that relate to its body. Only those who belong to the head of the soul are able to deal with the attainment of the Creator, but they are obliged to pass it down the hierarchy to the subordinate souls.

Ultimately, when the system comes to its completion, it will become circular and integral, and it will not make any difference who takes which place. Absolute unity and equality will reign in it.
