By rising above the #ego and connecting with others, one cancels borders between everyone, thus canceling borders btwn our and Upper world.
If I begin to treat others like myself, I remove limits and start seeing and attaining beyond the confines of my regular circle. #Israel
To #love is to know how to give another what he lacks, and he can do the same for me. This is the integral mechanism of all humankind.
Our #world is a movie that we must stop playing inside of ourselves! The end of the world is the end of its erroneous perception by man.
The month of #Elul (repentance) is when one wants to be in the right connection with everyone, to do what they need! #shanatova #jewish
#RoshHaShanah—the “everything for me” attitude gives the sensation of this world. If I aim at bestowal, in that I sense the Upper world.
#ShanahTovah The New Year is new realization that the real self is everyone else. And what I used to deem my “self” is the ego, my enemy!

Reading the chapter of the Torah “Ki Tavo” (“When You Come”), it seems that it is full of threats. However, these are not threats, but instructions that give us an opportunity to act correctly at a new level.
Let’s say that a person is engaged in constructing nuclear power plants. How long is it necessary to train him so he will work correctly with such complex and dangerous equipment?!
It is the same here, this chapter explains how to keep ourselves on the spiritual path and what all the tolerances and landings, measurements, controls, checks, joints, and so on should be.
“Ki Tavo” is a special chapter because it speaks about the entrance to the degree “the land of Israel.”
Question: Does it mean that if we make a mistake in producing “the nuclear plant” that is called “the entrance to the land of Israel,” then we will be undergoing a step-by-step trial?
Answer: We already are undergoing this step-by-step trial. Look what is happening in the world to this day. We do not even know the consequences of the Chernobyl accident and of the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan.
Question: That is, is a nuclear power plant just child’s play compared to the entrance to the land of Israel?
Answer: Of course! We somehow got out of this on the material level. Say, a couple of thousand people were killed, although in fact there were many more, another couple of thousand are ill due to the radiation, another couple of million people are also ill, but they do not know why. But humanity survived it all, and here it will not. Here the people that enter the land of Israel must move only forward, there is no turning back.
Ascending to this degree, you are obliged to fully obey the instructions, including all the slightest subtleties; otherwise, there will be a breakdown that will affect everyone.
Question: Do you mean that there is only an entrance and no way out?
Answer: No, you are kicked back from the land of Israel. This is what happened to us 2,000 years ago so that today we again will begin to rise to this level, and this is, in principle, what the wisdom of Kabbalah is preparing for us.
This is an entrance to such a level where even on the first degree you become similar to the Creator. This is called the land of Israel, which is when your egoism already begins transforming to the equivalence to the Creator.

In the News (New York Times): “Climate change is essentially tied with the Islamic State as the most-feared security threat across much of the world — except in the United States, where cyberattacks are considered a greater danger than global warming, according to a Pew Research Center report released on Tuesday.
“Residents of 13 countries ranked climate change as the greatest threat to national security, while in 17 countries the Islamic State was considered a more immediate problem.
“In the United States, however, a gaping partisan divide pushed climate change to third-most severe perceived threat, after ISIS and cyberwarfare. Just 56 percent of Americans surveyed identified global warming as the most serious threat to the country, compared to 71 percent for cyberwarfare and 74 percent for Islamic State attacks.”
Question: What are your thoughts, what should a person fear most?
Answer: A person is most afraid of fear. He is afraid that he will be gripped by fear and very much wants to avoid this state. And the rest is not important since it is all relative. That’s why we need to fear only the experience of fear and not all those things that stand behind it.
Question: What can we do to not be afraid of fear?
Answer: We need to rise above it, to the level where absolute confidence, freedom, limitlessness, eternity, perfection, and love exists. It is to this level that we need to rise rather than lowering ourselves to the bottomless pit of our consciousness or even worse, our sub consciousness, where rats, snakes, demons, devils, and worms, all those things that devour us exist. Because they all exist only in the experience of fear.
And the experience of fear is only triggered by the unknown, which is intentionally brought on to you in order to get you to rise and reveal the Creator. Because when the Creator is revealed, everything suddenly becomes clear, simple, and calm.
Question: So it turns out that the Creator is intentionally pushing us out of fear?
Answer: Naturally. He creates evil, as it is written in the Torah. The Creator says something like, “And now I will give you more of this and that. Moses, go to your people, they received another portion from Me.” Each time, more and more.
Question: Each time adding more fear?
Answer: Not just fear, but all sorts of problems in order for the people to rise above them and, in partnership with the Creator, turn them into a force propelling them forward.
Question: How are we to rise out of personal fears, out of all of these, as you say, worms, devils, and all those things that eat a person up?
Answer: That’s what the science of Kabbalah is for. We gradually rise along all the 125 steps. The Creator will constantly be awakening negative feelings, and we must rise above them to Him, our beloved. I only need to know: all that He awakens within me is experienced in my egoism. And if I rise above ego, there I will discover His love and devotion. And with respect to my egoism, I see that the Creator is intent on constantly arousing it with evil, fear, and so on.
Question: In other words, we can say that He hates my egoism and demands for me to rise to Him?
From KabTV’s “News With Michael Laitman” 8/10/17
Torah, Deuteronomy 29:18 – 29:21: And it will be, when he [such a person] hears the words of this oath, that he will bless himself in his heart, saying, “I will have peace, even if I follow my heart’s desires,” in order to add the [punishment for the] unintentional sins [of this man] to that of [his] intentional sins.
The Lord will not be willing to forgive him; rather, then, the Lord’s fury and His zeal will fume against that man, and the entire curse written in this book will rest upon him, and the Lord will obliterate his name from beneath the heavens.
And the Lord will separate him for evil, out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant, written in this Torah scroll.
The point is that the verification must be very strict. It is based on completely new assessments of analysis, identification, and separation of certain properties from others, their correction, etc. And only after this does the correct use of the desire for receiving for the sake of bestowal take place.
After all, a period begins when you receive the upper revelation in your egoism to transmit it to others. You are the transmission link for all the other souls or all the other parts of one collective soul. Therefore, if you pass that poison that you may not notice inside yourself on to others, then it becomes your problem multiplied many times over. You are responsible for this.
It is written: “And it will be, when he [such a person] hears the words of this oath, that he will bless himself in his heart, saying, ‘I will have peace, even if I follow my heart’s desires.’” That is, you depend on others. When you start working in the land of Israel, you are connected to others and they depend on you because for them you are in some way a representative of the Creator.
