Absolute Freedom

laitman_546_02Question: What does it mean to be a free citizen of “the last generation”?

Answer: I choose one of the two, either the Pharaoh (egoism) or the Creator (altruism).

I have a choice all the time and it never leaves me. Even if I choose the Creator a 100%, I still have the freedom of choice because the state of slavery in my egoism constantly accompanies me, I do not remove or erase it. Therefore, existence between the Pharaoh and the Creator makes me absolutely free from one and from the other.

Question: Is this the middle line when a person stands above both of these natures?

Answer: Yes, of course, and he constantly chooses. However, when I stand in the middle line, I feel something that does not apply to either of them. I begin to feel a state where I defeat them both, the Pharaoh and the Creator. I consist of both of them. “My sons have defeated Me.” This is what is given to the creature by the Creator!

Who Wrote The Script Of Fate?

Laitman_709Question: If a person’s entire destiny is predetermined, then in what manner is this script realized? Who is the director who actualizes it?

Answer: This program is actualized through the power of a single force called “nature” or the “Creator,” the upper force.

It’s a positive, benevolent force, within which, as if within a force field, there exists a desire. The desire is called the created being because it did not exist prior to being created by this positive force, the Creator.

The Creator, as a benevolent force, develops the desire, placing it under the “steamroller of evolution” and obligates it to progress. The force of evolution is pushing us from behind with pain and suffering or pulling us forward with pleasure. After all, the material of the created being is a desire to receive pleasure, to receive fulfillment.

Because of this, the desire continuously develops toward greater and greater complexity of form. In other words, within this desire, which up until now felt only pleasure or pain in response to life experiences, another component is added—the brain, the memory—due to the traumatic experiences of life.

The entire path of the developmental experience formulates within the created being an internal program: memory of past states and conditions, which lead to positive or negative sensations within the desire to receive. All past situations are recorded within the desire as memory about pleasure and pain and also accumulate within the brain as past experiences.

Ultimately, this desire is able to make predictions, build some future plans, plan in advance what to choose and what to avoid. All this is based on prior experience.

A person can also learn from the experience of the environment: inanimate, vegetative, animals, and other people. That’s how he advances. But, regardless of the complexity of this program, within it there are no accidental elements that cannot be predicted in advance. If we knew all of nature, all the forces working within it, then we would be able to know ahead of time, to measure exactly, to understand and observe that events will unfold in this particular manner and in no other possible way.

It’s as if we built a machine or computer system and knew exactly how it must operate in its correct functioning state. A person is also exactly like that, so is a group of people and all of humanity—there is nothing unexpected within it. The problem is only in our ignorance; it doesn’t mean that there are some unknown glitches in the system. If they are unknown, it’s only us.

Language Without Words

laitman_527_02Question: The anniversary of the birth of the language Esperanto was celebrated recently. Esperanto was an attempt to construct a language that would unite all people. It was a great idea and a good try, but in the end, it achieved nothing. Why? It seems that the intention was correct: for all to speak the same language.

Answer: What for? It’s unnatural.

At one time, when we were closer with one another, we spoke the same language. That was in ancient Babylon. And then, with rise in mutual rejection, we suddenly started to speak in different tongues. This was the “destruction of the Tower of Babel,” when people internally stopped understanding one another.

They internally distanced themselves from each other with their different aspirations; their interconnections with each other became estranged and that’s why they stopped understanding each other to such an extent that they starting speaking different languages. All the languages of the world came from that. And that’s why they all went their separate ways. That’s how we live to this day.

Question: Then why not have a language that unites everyone? By the way, two million people speak Esperanto.

Answer: None of them speak it. These two million are spending time with each other like any other common interest group.

Nothing will come of this until people begin to feel that they should once again become one, that they have a common base, a common goal. Then they will find that is a common language that they will be able to speak.

The inner language of a person will be revealed, people will simply understand each other, even without words, internally translating the thoughts of one another. That language will definitely appear! But only after humanity decides that it wants to be united. At the root of the shattering that occurred in Babylon was egoism. If we begin to rise above it, we will once again unite in our mutual understanding of each other. No language is needed for that.

That’s why Esperanto will not give you anything. It’s that same Babylon with different languages. Out of all that same confusion they made a new “salad,” which only reminds us about the past, the shattering, and the distancing from each other.

Question: If people really want to unite, to become one whole, then the language will appear by itself?

Answer: Yes. They must concern themselves only with their spiritual, soulful, connection to each other, and then they will know in what language to communicate.

My Page Is For You

Laitman_917.01Dear Friends!

I have been running my Facebook page for years now. When I opened this page I was driven, of course, by a feeling of deep pain and compassion for all of humanity.

After all, every day our goals and desires are fading more and more; we are abandoning everything only to exist. Our hard, selfish nature confronts us and does not allow us to enjoy life in any way. We involuntarily live this short number of years, which is given to us, and no one enjoys it.

An era has come when the science of Kabbalah can be revealed to all. With its help, we can really make our lives happy, balanced, and peaceful. I see what can be achieved with the help of the hidden forces of nature, which the science of Kabbalah allows us to disclose and properly manage.

This is why I opened my Facebook page. I truly hope that it will help us all attain a good and peaceful life on the next upper level where all our wishes can actually be fulfilled by us. I wish us all success in achieving this. Get to know what the wisdom of Kabbalah has to offer humanity.

Good luck to all of us!

There Is No Emptiness!

laitman_628.2Question: There is usually a feeling of great emptiness that emerges after conventions. How can you prepare for it, or could it be that you shouldn’t worry about it at all?

Answer: You shouldn’t worry or think about the great emptiness since there cannot be a state of emptiness. We will keep discovering it and keep filling it over and over again.

If you are connected to other friends, you will not feel emptiness since you will constantly fill them or they will fill you. There is a cyclical flow between you in the ten so that you will never find that you are empty or full to a greater degree than you should be.

“The Lord Will Strike You…With A Terrible Skin Eruption”

laitman_746.03Torah, Deuteronomy 28:35: The Lord will strike you on the knees and on the legs with a terrible skin eruption from which you will be unable to be cured; [it will eventually cover you] from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.

If those desires that must work for bestowal, connection, and love work for the opposite side, then you will feel leprosy in them.
The lesion of leprosy (egoism) will spread throughout the entire body of your soul. All your ten Sefirot will be damaged by all kinds of egoistic lesions so that you will not be able to feel the Creator or the Upper world and you will suffer from this.

Question: However, the sons of Israel are allowed to enter the land of Israel. So does this mean that they match this desire? And, suddenly, it is written in the Torah, “The Lord will strike you…”

Answer: Do you think that the land of Israel is a Garden of Eden (paradise) where you enter and everything is ready for you and you do not think and worry about anything anymore?

Yes, you corresponded to the entrance to this land, but there you still have a lot of work to do. There is nothing more dangerous than to be in the land of Israel when you must alter all the desires for bestowal and love.

Previously, these desires were on a lower level and, therefore, it was enough to have had a neutral attitude toward each other, which is called “Forty years of wandering in the desert.” These are the same desires you had previously in Egypt during the four hundred years of Egyptian slavery and you—being in all kinds of egoistic relationships—could not get rid of them and suffered greatly, realizing that they are scary, nasty, and terrible.

Now you must correct them for the sake of bestowal and love and this is the highest and most difficult form of correction. Therefore, the entrance to the land of Israel—that is to the state in which a person has ascended to this spiritual level—involves very complex and responsible work.

This includes constant, moment to moment problems that you must solve within yourself, generating love for others from within yourself. This is the only way to be in the land of Israel because it demonstrates the ever-increasing similarity to the Creator, to the force of bestowal and love.

Question: Are the “boundaries” of Israel known? Can I know how long I will suffer or for how long I will have to work on my egoism?

Answer: This is one hundred percent known!

It is written that you are leading the land of Israel according to a certain parameters and these parameters expand more and more until the entire globe is covered. In other words, all the desires of humanity must be converted to the quality of bestowal and love for each other. Absolute love represents the end of universal correction.

If you do not do this, you will be struck by leprosy. Sometimes such a lesion is even necessary for you to see and correct it. After all, there are desires that can be corrected without exposing their full egoistic essence and there are such desires that you obliged to unfold in their full, egoistic, stinking state; they can be corrected only when you see to what extent they devour you.

Question: Why is it written, “The Lord will strike you on the knees and on the legs with a terrible skin eruption from which you will be unable to be cured”?

Answer: These are the degrees of the soul: NHY, HGT and HBD. You will feel as if small worms are crawling on you that eat your flesh and then gnaw on your bones; your flesh gradually disappears and nothing remains of you. You will have these spiritual torments until you will be able to turn them into the quality of bestowal and love.
