Some tips to help you understand the meaning of #Hanukkah

Exertion: when I say “I can’t do any more” is precisely where exertion begins. Every moment I must actualize the principle “If not now, when?” Freewill is exercised at every moment. If you miss a moment, you haven’t actualized your freewill.

Love is when you’re inside me, and I’m inside you, like an #embryo inside a mother. As a mother senses herself in her child—his desires determine everything for her!

Along with the growth of the ego, Kabbalah develops one’s “point in the heart,” allowing him to exist between two forces: good and #evil inclination. Then, between them, he’s free to use the evil inclination for the benefit of the good—and advance in this manner.

Today we can say that we’re putting the method of Abraham into practice. That is the source of the method of unifying people, which is called #Kabbalah

To what degree is the #Creator responsible for the world? For everything that happens? If He causes all this disunity among us, how is He responsible for it? He is responsible for everything, completely and absolutely: He stands behind us, ready to do all we ask.

Addressing the Creator is the vessel of the soul (prayer, Hisaron, Kli). It must always develop—that is my correction. Not the answer to the request, but the request (yearning) itself—there’s spiritual work & fulfillment of the soul. By this I show my attitude to the Creator.

Kabbalah reveals for us the GPS of #life: where to go & how not to stray, but take the quickest and shortest path to achieving all the very best—toward the right Goal in life, for the GPS to show us where it lies.

To reveal the #spiritual world means to sense oneself in it. The spiritual world is a network where our desires intertwine, concealed from us by the ego. As we aspire to be like this system of connection between us, we stimulate its influence on us, up to its revelation between us.

To draw the light means to always think that it is precisely what we lack—ever increasing #connection between us, up to the bond between everyone becoming permanent, i.e. manifesting as the 10 Sefirot filled with the Creator’s light.

The #ego is necessary! It was created in order to show us how distant we are from one another, how distant (different) from the Creator, so that we could draw closer together and thus with the Creator, in His complete revelation.

What will determine the good future of Israel and the world? #JerusalemEmbassy

Instead of proclaiming #Jerusalem capital of Israel, Trump could have directed secular Jews (Israeli and US) to actualize the method of uniting the Jews, which would cause the unification of the nations of the world! Instead, his proclamation exacerbates hatred and delays peace.

Trump won’t correct the world. Jews must become a united people and thus show an example of unity to the nations. This is their historic & spiritual mission, & rejecting it causes all the suffering in the world (Ashlag. Preface to The Book of Zohar, para 70-76) and #antisemitism.

Malchut Is Waiting

laitman_282.01Torah, Numbers 12:01: Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses regarding the Cushite woman he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman.

Moses’s wife Zipporah is a Cushite, meaning she is dark-skinned. It means that Moses’s Malchut is much darker, harder, and heavier than the desires of Miriam and Aaron. Therefore, when he works with her, he reaches a higher level.

In the same way, we now have to attach ourselves to all of humanity. Can you imagine the Malchut that is waiting to be connected?! At the same time, when this happens all will receive such an elevation!

Integrated In Nature

Laitman_715Question: What can you do if you see that people in this world are completely not connected?

Answer: Unfortunately, this is so. But all of nature—inanimate, vegetative, and animate—is already beginning to close. It is revealed to us as more and more integral. Everything without exception enters into one system.

And nature has always been like this, but now it is approaching man, wanting to include him within nature and cannot. We oppose all of it degrees and are unable to be integrated in it because we are not integrated within ourselves and between us.

It is possible to disagree with this and say, “Is it true that the inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature is integrated? We see how the animals prey on each other.” But for them it is a means of existence. They have no intention of causing harm to each other, only to co-exist correctly.

But we do not see it because we look at them through our egoistic point of view. If we could look at nature correctly, we would understand that they do not destroy each other, but only act in symbiosis.

Covering Everything With Love

laitman_231.04Question: Can a Kabbalist control his own and others’ hatred that results from separation?

Answer: No. Hatred cannot be controlled. It can only be covered with love. It is written: “Love will cover all crimes.”

Question: Can I do this for someone else?

Answer: No. The only thing you can do is include everyone else inside of you and in this way turn all of their negative qualities into positive ones. There are no negative qualities. They are simply not balanced by positive ones.

New Life 305 – Humanity’s Place In Nature

New Life 305 – Humanity’s Place In Nature
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

The human ego makes us different from animals and the rest of nature. Our desire to control our environment to suit ourselves can be destructive whereas the rest of nature operates according to instinct and remains balanced. We can become part of the balanced, integral system if we adapt our hearts and minds by making conscious efforts to connect to others. We can become part of the single, great thought that manages everything in life if we relate to everything and everyone with love.
