Canadian Anti-Semites


In the News (JTA): “Canada’s largest private sector labor union adopted a motion in support of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel, or BDS.”

Question: The question is what Canadian trade unions have to do with this?

Answer: First, in Canada a huge part of the population is anti-Semitic. They are former immigrants from the Ukraine and France. A particularly strong anti-Semitic part is Quebec of French Canada. For many years it has been anti-Semitic, anti-American, and anti-Canadian, against English-speaking Canada.

Now they are actively opening their doors to Arab immigrants. By this they are creating a very unpleasant future for themselves: Canada will gradually turn into an Arab region.

The vast territory of Canada is home to only thirty million people, so the immigrants from Arab countries, Maghreb, etc., will happily settle there. All the more so, the immigrants from Africa will be drawn there.

So an unenviable future awaits Canada. Once it was a very attractive, decent country, especially for Jews. But it is all over now.

This, of course, was destined to end; everything ends for Jews because they have to fulfill their historic mission, and they are not. Therefore, they will not have a good life in any country, including the United States, Canada, and other states. They will gradually feel very serious pressures and troubles until they stop hating Kabbalah and realize that it is their salvation.

Question: Do you think that all the exits for Jews will practically close?

Answer: Absolutely all of them. Hatred of Israel on the part of all countries of the world will be enormous. We will try to keep up Israel so that it does not crumble and does not cease to exist, although it is also possible.

If we do not represent Israel as the source of the correction of humanity, there will be no meaning in its existence, and it will cease. And it will naturally be filled with neighboring peoples. It is not a problem.

Question: Don’t you think that Jews will still understand their mission and will begin to move toward it?

Answer: I do not see it yet. There is still some time left; we continue working on this, but it is possible that everything will turn out in a different way.

I will not tire of talking about this because there is no other way out. I am obliged to spread the science of correction among the masses all over the world through Jews. As far as possible, I will bring this to the point that I will be allowed to reach. But in principle, our situation is deteriorating from day to day because the Jewish people are still resisting the realization of their historic mission.

The Economy Of The Last Generation

 Question: What is the economy of the last generation from Baal HaSulam’s point of view?

Answer: Let’s say, you need to provide absolutely all people with all necessities. You put together a list of about 20 to 30 of the most essential things a person needs starting with clothing, furniture, food, and ending with textbooks for children and all the rest. Take this list and see what you need.

This type of planned economy comes from necessity: “What, essentially, does a person need?” If a person is only concerned with thinking about inner spiritual connection with others and attains ever higher levels of spiritual states in this connection, then he requires all necessities for existence.

He needs to be provided with all the necessities because we are not living in the clouds, we are real people. A person needs to receive his calories, his clothing, his electricity, light, water, gas.

How are all these needs going to be fulfilled? For this to happen, there needs to be a planned economy. And in his work, a person must constantly think about being of maximum benefit to others.

Question: Is there a connection between the economy of the future and spiritual development?

Answer: Absolutely! The incentive changes.

laitman_627.1Question: If the soul is one for all, and the soul is similarity to the Creator in terms of qualities, does it mean that the similarity to the Creator is also one for all?

Answer: No, each one has his own part. After all, we all are parts of the common soul and each part is completely unique. To become similar to the Creator means to transform one’s part from an egoistic form into an altruistic one, according to who you are by nature.

Question: Is it true according to Kabbalah that the more you are disgusted by a person, the more you fill your soul by loving him?

Answer: The greater the minus, the greater is the plus created above it, and consequently, the greater your soul is.

Question: Why is it sometimes said that a soul is a part of the Creator and sometimes, that this is a creation, a desire to receive?

Answer: It’s the same because according to its filling, a soul is the Light, and according to its nature, it is a creation, the desire that is opposite to the Creator. In other words, a soul consists of two opposite parts.

Question: What is the freewill of my soul if the beginning and the end are determined by the Creator?

Answer: The freewill is in reaching this end on your own, so that you are not urged “to happiness by the stick,” but you aspire to it yourself.

Question: If I love people and help them, will the Creator pass the Light through me?

Answer: No. The Creator will do nothing through you just so. Only if, while being in the group, you fulfill all the conditions that are described in the Kabbalistic sources.

Question: Is Kabbalah a science about love?

Answer: Yes, true love is something that arises as a result of realizing Kabbalah.

And They Will Learn To Fear The Lord

laitman_749.01Torah, Deuteronomy, Vayelech, 31:12 – 31:13: Assemble the people: the men, the women, and the children, and your stranger in your cities, in order that they hear, and in order that they learn and fear the Lord, your God, and they will observe to do all the words of this Torah.

And their children who did not know ,will hear and learn to fear the Lord, your God, all the days that you live on the land, to which you are crossing the Jordan, to possess.

Fear before the Creator is what holds a person, especially during the forty-year journey through the desert. And in the land of Israel, the quality of fear moves to another level.

In the desert the fear was whether I would be able to refrain from using my egoism for my own sake, but in the land of Israel it is a completely different quality: whether I would be able to use my egoism for bestowal and love of others. An inversion in the use of egoism happens here.

Therefore, Moses warns the people; after all, this is not just very difficult to do, it is even hard to imagine how to do it. I cannot forbid myself to enjoy. Will I be able to allow myself to enjoy, and especially for the sake of the Creator? It is much easier to forbid.

Question: It is written, “Assemble the people: the men, the women, and the children, and your stranger in your cities.” What does that mean?

Answer: All of these are a person’s inner qualities. Let them listen to Moses’s warnings because each of them must undergo its own correction. Only after that can you enter the land of Israel and begin working with your desires “for the sake of bestowal.”

What Should I Do If Others Want To Use Me?

laitman_628.4Question: How can one recognize egoism correctly in relationships friend/stranger or when others want to use me?

Answer: If I want to achieve similarity to the Creator and advance to the next level of feeling the entire universe, nature, and creation, then it does not matter to me whether they want to use me or not.

I must assume a completely different concept: everything that exists in nature, including myself, is created and maintained by one single force—the Creator. I am not interested in what other people think or what and how is happening in the world. The Creator controls this.

Therefore, through everything that is written in the Kabbalistic instructions, I try to find connection with the Creator, to see Him and not other people, sources, desires, and thoughts in everything. All this is imaginary. In fact, none of this exists.

Understand The Meaning Of Life

Laitman_154Question: If a person will come to the Creator in any case, then why overload ourselves with reading endless books?

Answer: There is no need to overload yourself with anything. You just need to understand that a person acts according to his desire and there cannot be any coercion here. The wisdom of Kabbalah offers itself to people who feel the need for their own realization at the highest level. But for this, a person must have an inner desire.

I had a desire to reveal the meaning of life. I did not want to know anything apart from this. I understood that all the rest was invented by man, but the meaning of life should come from the highest level of nature, perhaps of reason.

Question: At what age did you start to feel this?

Answer: At the age of six or seven I had to know this. However, for me this was mixed with my interest in anthropology and cosmology, I wanted either to dig into the ground or to go into space beyond the Earth’s boundaries. Everything else—to be a builder, a doctor, an aircraft designer—was of little interest to me.

If a person has an aspiration to reveal the meaning of life, and only small number of people have this desire, then he begins to study Kabbalah. He must unearth this secret within himself. And not from point of view of religion in order to believe in something, but exactly in order to reveal.

In other words, there are hidden forces that need to be revealed. When we part this screen, we will see what stands behind the shell of our world. We must attain this absolutely clearly, without any imaginary thoughts and desires, only in our sensory organs.
