My Thoughts On Twitter, 11/12/17

For as long as #Israel doesn’t fulfill its function in being an example of a unity for the nations of the world, the #UN, as their representative, will keep condemning it more and more!

The point of #transition from concealment to revelation: The world seems confusing, illogical, devoid of purpose and objective—and so the need for the Creator is manifested.

The conception of the soul (Klitat Zera) happens in the AHP of the upper one, in the ten, on the condition of total “dissolution” in it, i.e. annulling one’s #ego.

The Creator’s revelation manifests on the basis of the concealment that preceded it. The extent of the concealment is determined by the ten’s opinion. It can hasten the process. #kabbalah #group

Ignorance of nature’s laws results in society laying down laws and judging people by them, from generation to generation. How absurd! #society #kabbalah

Between the nature of this world “to receive” and the force given from above “to bestow,” #freedom of choice appears in the point where they balance each other out.

Imagine: the ten is the AHP of the upper one, the Creator, in which your #soul—the point of your annulled ego (thoughts and desires)—is born.

Want to accelerate the Creator’s revelation in you? Control your #perception of the world. If the Creator is concealed, regard that moment as the greatest punishment!

Kabbalah begins with a question: “What do I live for?” Judging by what’s happening in the world, all of humanity’s development is bringing us to this question today.

Harmony doesn’t demand capitulation of either side! Nature is founded on the balance of opposites. Not #competition, but complementation!

Unity is the only thing society needs. The method of taming the growing #ego and achieving unity is called Kabbalah. It is all that we need.

To be noble is to bring #Light into the world. It will enable you to act “from yourself” instead of “for yourself.” Try it and see how the ego has conned you!

He who advances spiritually clings onto GE, the right leg, quality of bestowal. But to keep moving he must also use AHP, the left leg, ego. #spirituality

The legs move. RAGLAIM (legs) stems from the word MERAGLIM (tracers), meaning #opponents. But it’s precisely thanks to their reverse help that we rise to attain the upper world.

Want to accelerate the Creator’s #revelation in you? Focus on picturing His presence in the world: “There’s none else besides Him who does Good.”

What Is A Blessing?

laitman_239Question: The last of the portion of the Torah is called “Ve Zot aBracha” (And this is the blessing). What does it mean?

Answer: A blessing is the upper Light. It’s not simply a light, but the Light that corrects a person and humanity, creates it into a united form, such that this form exists in similarity and fusion with the Creator. It is similar to the Creator like a vessel and its fulfillment.

The Light that corrects us and makes similar to the Creator is called Torah. All we have to do is to learn how to receive the Torah and to correctly call it upon ourselves so that it can fully form and mold us.

A blessing is the highest state a person can achieve when he completely “clothes” onto the Creator. He is like a vessel that accepts the upper Light within himself.

“Remember The Days Of Old”

laitman_947Torah, Deuteronomy 32:07 – 32:09: Remember the days of old; reflect upon the years of [other] generations. Ask your father, and he will tell you; your elders, and they will inform you.

When the Most High gave nations their lot, when He separated the sons of man, He set up the boundaries of peoples according to the number of the children of Israel.

Because the Lord’s portion is His people Jacob, the lot of His inheritance.

It is written: “Because the Lord’s portion is His people Jacob, the lot of His inheritance.” This is about the middle line that combines the entire huge egoism and the entire huge quality of altruism, the quality of bestowal and love that is received from the Creator.

This is a combination of all of human nature that is revealed more and more, to the very end. A person goes through terrible states when he betrays everyone and everything and is ready to destroy absolutely everyone, including the Creator. This is the left line.

However, at the same time, he demands to be corrected, and this is the right line. He does not want to have these egoistic states in him and he receives the right line, which does not destroy the left line, does not annul it, but is created opposite to the left line.

A person begins to combine the two lines in himself—the right one and the left one—like a plus and a minus. He builds his desire on this. So, upon the quality of the left line (absolute egoism) and upon the quality of the right line (absolute bestowal and love), he builds his soul.

In other words, a person’s desire is between two opposite qualities and absorbs them into itself: both the quality of bestowal and the quality of reception.

The desire wants to receive, otherwise we cannot do anything. It aspires to receive because the Creator requires this. In this respect, the desire, by its nature, is opposite to the Creator and in its correction, it is absolutely similar to Him.

Our qualities that turned into reception for the sake of bestowal are called His people, the correct combination of minus and plus is called Jacob.

Question: Why do we need to always “Remember the days of old; reflect upon the years of [other] generations. Ask your father, and he will tell you; your elders, and they will inform you.”?

Answer: The generation is something that must be raised from all of our past experiences in order to bring them to correction, to create the correct overall balance: the accumulation of the minus, plus, and middle parts.

Questions: So when it is written “Remember the days of old,” it means that you as if pull them to yourself for the present correction. And in our world, isn’t the opposite true: it is better not to remember the past? As soon as we begin to remember the past, we get many additional problems.

Answer: This is the lack of the correct education, the correct vision of nature and everything that is in us.

Everything comes from the Creator. The most important thing is that “There is none else besides Him.” If we act only in this way, then there is no evil in the world and everything is created only for its correction.

Research In The Science Of Kabbalah

Dr. Michael LaitmanEvery science consists of three parts: basic research, practical research, and the popularization of the science including education.

If everything is more or less understood regarding the popularization of science, it is not the case regarding new basic research and applied science.

Question: Are there new basic studies conducted in the wisdom of Kabbalah, or does it all come down to studying ancient sources? Is the research spontaneous or is it coordinated by Bnei Baruch?

Answer: Studies on the wisdom of Kabbalah are conducted in Kabbalistic groups who make laboratories of themselves and examine how the changes in the group are affected by the upper Light, the surrounding Light (Ohr Makif)

Question: If it is an applied science, a practical science, what is the essence and the direction of the study? Or is the role of the wisdom of Kabbalah reduced to merely supporting other sciences in the practical sense, sciences like quantum physics, for example, or individual scientists?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah does not support material sciences in any way, although they can use its findings. The role of the wisdom of Kabbalah is not so much about research but the practical use of the upper force, the surrounding Light (Ohr Makif), in order to change man’s nature.

Question: Is there a plan to popularize the wisdom of Kabbalah? I mean is there a system developed system to spread the wisdom of Kabbalah around the world in cooperation with different religions, science, educational institutions, the mass media, etc.?

Answer: There are studies of the wisdom of Kabbalah. But since it is necessary to change the nature of the scientist for the Kabbalist to study it, there is a need for a group in which such research can be conducted.

This cannot be done in the framework of university communities because none of those students studying Kabbalah academically want to switch from its theoretical study to its practical study in a group as the Kabbalistic sources describe. They eventually keep talking about the subject, about the field, without actually attaining the subject, the field, itself.

Everything you are asking exists in the wisdom of Kabbalah in a unique form because the Kabbalistic knowledge of attaining the concealed layers of nature is revealed to a person to the degree that he changes himself, corrects his egoistic nature, which is never required of any other scientist.

If we want to treat the violent tendencies in America from their root, we have to deal with the culture that breeds them… We have to consistently work on our unity so that it is more powerful than our evil, which is the potential eruption of the human ego. #shooting #texas

New Life #907 – Spiritual Intelligence

New Life #907 – Spiritual Intelligence
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

I ultimately discover that everyone is me and that all of reality is my system. Now we see the world selectively—what is more important and what is less important to me according to an egoistic intention.

Seeing reality as it truly is requires a new, altruistic program of perception. We need to see everyone as one system, but the present mind and feelings are not ready for this. We need to develop a new, spiritual intelligence: an absolutely new perception of reality, a global intelligence that will make it possible for us to feel an attitude of love toward all people like we have for our children.
