Democrats Are Fighting Against Democracy

115.06The only way to build a new reality is through integral education. After all, every attempt humanity makes to correct its state fails every time and causes even greater harm. This is because the cause of all the problems and perverse forms of our development lies only in our egoism.

It is egoism that pushes us to develop and therefore we are increasingly growing our egoistic desire. Instead of satisfying it, however, we fail every time and find ourselves even more devastated.

This is clearly visible in the modern world that is supposedly based on democracy and liberalism. After all, the biggest “democracy” that was currently flourishing in the US has suddenly begun to degenerate, practically into Nazism. Half of the people do not agree with the results of the democratic elections and actually try to prevent the elected president from taking power.

This only happens in countries with the most radical regimes. Could a revolution be in the making in the US? It can be seen that egoism leads a person to a state in which all of his liberal and democratic foundations collapse. Democracy exists for him only as long as it suits him. However, as soon as it goes against his opinion, he is immediately ready to abandon it and throw it in the garbage.

Clearly, all of this stems from excessively developed egoism and it is obvious that there is no solution for this. We have come to these interesting results due to our egoistic development. The wellbeing of society is now directly in the hands of the rich elite.

So what kind of democracy, liberalism, and pluralism is it if the newspapers and media are in the hands of the rich who determine which way they wish to twist society, the country, and the world at large? Therefore, at least, we should not deceive ourselves and believe the news by calling these systems by the names of democracy and liberalism.

This is not a democracy at all but, rather, represents propaganda of opinion, beneficial only to the one who pays the owner of the newspaper. And this opinion will manifest as a result because time after time, year after year, it spreads through thousands of media channels and newspapers as well as via the Internet.

In this way, the public gradually gets a twisted opinion without noticing how it changes and becomes like zombies according to the desire of the one who pays for and orders the “music.” The rich elite want to form a certain opinion among the people and therefore pay to support newspapers, the media, and social networks.

This is a useful and advanced state. After all, while our egoism was small we did not see our vices. Today, the malfunction is revealed to such an extent that people in America and Europe are taking to the streets, shouting, and instigating riots. It has become obvious to everyone that this is not the state humanity has dreamt of.

The American Dream and our hopes for a united Europe have melted. In fact, these systems have turned out to be quite the opposite of what we had thought. This is because our egoism guides us this way. We are trying to correct externalities: the world, the environment, and the form society takes in order to organize new parties and extend new influence on the people. And we hope to correct something this way.

As a result, there will be more police officers, hospitals, and other organizations that help the needy, but nothing good will come out of them. After all, the cause of all these malfunctions is hidden in our egoism and it is this egoism that needs to be corrected.

Therefore, instead of dealing with the correction of the external world, it is necessary to investigate and correct a person’s internal world. The whole world is perceived within a person and we see so many vices around us in human society because we, ourselves, are corrupted inside. If we would focus on correcting our internal properties, we would simultaneously learn how to correct the external world.

We are living at a time when humanity is beginning to reveal the consequences of its many thousands of years of development and is seeking an answer.

Life’s 1 purpose is 2 be like Creator. The 1 sin is not searching for this constantly. The 1 solution—to unite 10 as one, fulfilled by Him

If you steal, you must be cared for & protected. If you lecture others, hate ppl & country and oppose unity, there’s no atonement for this!

By creating a network of good #connections between us, we unite the cells in nature’s common body and reveal its vivifying force, the Creator.

Above, through all the Sefirot (worlds) descends a ray of light (Torah), awakening in us a spark that calls on us to reveal the upper world

We’re an organism that crumbled to pieces. If we gather it, a force of #unity & sensation of eternal & perfect system will manifest inside.

The right relationships allow us to control all the levels of #nature, since all nature follows its highest level, man.

Researchers: In 2018 we should expect a sharp change in #climate and pole shifting. Only people unifying can remove the disbalance of nature.

#EU scientists have declared homeopathy a lie dangerous to health–a clear example of a power struggle for the market and society’s crisis!

Atonement for sins lies only in spiritual unity. This is the correction of system of Adam, in which the Creator (fulfillment) will appear.

If #Israel unites, it will heal all its & world’s problems. The Creator won’t stop pushing us toward this with suffering & #antisemitism.

Using a person egoistically is a crime against them. Using the world egoistically is a crime against the Creator. #Israel #Jewish

Revealing the evil of one’s nature isn’t cause to despair, but rather joy–it’s the first, essential step toward correction of self (soul).

#YomKippur If I unite with others to unite w/ the Creator, it means I’ve achieved soul’s correction, which the Creator fills with Himself.

Ask forgiveness 4 not having united into one whole. This is our fault, and is exactly what the Creator doesn’t forgive! #YomKippur2017

Sin is opposing unification into one desire, ADAM. #YomKippur does not cover sins between people. Correction is love of one’s neighbor.

On #YomKippur we must understand what we’re lacking, which good actions. Since all we’re lacking is the right attitude toward one another.

Stop preparing kids to work at businesses. The only #profession of the future is a specialist in organizing people into a unified society.

The Main Thing Is Intention

laitman_224Question: What role does intention play in building any relationship?

Answer: Intention means absolutely everything. There is nothing except for intentions.

Desires are given to us; they are broken, sorted, scattered, and arise in us according to some special program. Therefore, the main thing is the intention: for the sake of what, in the name of what, for whom am I going to do something or even just to think. The main thing is where I direct my thoughts, feelings, and aspirations.

The World At The Crossroads, Part 1

420.06A few months ago, when we started preparations for the European congress, which will take place in a few days, it seemed that the most pressing issue was the unification of Europe and our need to work on this. After all, Europeans do not understand why all of their attempts to create a united Europe fail.

First of all, we need to prepare the society and build a common platform between all the European countries. Only then can we start talking about uniting Europe so that this would be a union of hearts and not banks. A union can exist only if it is based on good relations between people because we are talking about human society.

However, a few months have passed since then and the situation has deteriorated significantly; new and more urgent problems have more recently emerged. It is no longer enough to talk about the unification of Europe; it is necessary to unite the whole world. This issue is crucial today.

It is becoming more and more noticeable every day: the development of the world is rapidly accelerating. This development is inevitable, but it can go in two ways: the path of Light or the path of the natural course of evolution, which is suffering. And it depends on us, the people, which path we will choose. In any case, we must undergo this development of “absolute magnitude” whether we will move into an abyss or toward a beautiful life.

These two paths lie before us. The path of natural development is a path of separation that will inevitably doom us to strikes, suffering, unhappiness, and even world wars. And all this is only to force us to eventually go on the path of Light or at least to walk along the middle line between these two ways.

And the path of Light is the path of unity, which is the ultimate goal of our entire development. We all have to reunite as one person within one system: Adam HaRishon. And if we correctly aspire toward this goal together and by our own will, the world will move forward in a good way. If not, the world will advance with blows. We choose one way of these two.

In addition, another negative development has appeared recently: Nazis re-emerged in the United States. This is not a mere accident as they always existed; however, they were quiet and afraid to be vocal. But today, they stopped hiding.

We can talk for ages about the internal and external reasons that led to neo-Nazism raising its head in the US, but, in fact, the reasons are not important because Nazism is a natural phenomenon.

As Marx and Baal HaSulam wrote, Nazism is the next stage after socialism. If socialism does not follow the path of the right type of unification, then it degenerates into Nazism, that is, the wrong kind of unification of society.

In essence, this is the whole difference between the path of suffering and the path of Light. There is evidence that Nazi fascists had hoped that in the future the US would have become a Nazi country, united by a national-socialist idea.

This trend will continue to develop further with the help of American Jews, just as it was in Germany at the very beginning of the Nazis rise to power. Therefore, it is necessary to do everything possible to avoid the recurrence of the bitter mistakes of the past, which are already looming on the horizon.

History repeats itself and not only Europe stands at a crossroads today, but the whole world. Let us hope that we will be able to change it from the path of suffering to the good path of light.

What Is Pain?

laitman_528.02Question: You claim that if you hurt a friend, then you hit the whole system. What is pain?

Answer: Pain is a sensation of lack of filling in a desire. There are different thresholds of the sensation of lack of filling. A serious threshold causes pain.

Question: What does it mean to hurt a friend in the ten.

Answer: If it is a good ten, then you hurt your friend if you do not realize yourself in it.

Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

In what way is integration different from connection? What makes it possible for a person to be integrated in a group even though inner resistance is awakened in him, and how is it possible to soften the ego that separates between friends?

There Is No Division In Spirituality

Laitman_632.4Torah, Deuteronomy 29:28: The hidden things belong to the Lord, our God, but the revealed things apply to us and to our children forever: that we must fulfill all the words of this Torah.

This is not a correct translation of the Torah. Which means, that the hidden is from Creator and the revealed, up to the third or fourth degree, is by us.

Because if we reveal it by ourselves, then it happens toward the whole system of the ten Sefirot or until the third or fourth degree, which is toward the Kelim (vessels) of bestowal—Galgalta ve Eynaim, or even AHP.

That which is revealed by the creator is revealed to us in our efforts. On the other hand, we experience failure. If you do not work correctly, you leave a similar trail behind you to the third and fourth degree. It is stated clearly: “The guilt of the fathers falls on their children to the third, fourth generation.”

Question: It turns out that my next spiritual degree is compromised?

Answer: Your next degree depends on you. However, if it is compromised, it extends all the way through and you must rebuild it anew. It is impossible for only a part of it to be damaged. As it says: “There is no division in spirituality.”
