How The Spiritual Embryo Grows

laitman_232.07We need to understand what is involved in advancing along the path of the Creator. We think that overcoming is that we actually overcome the obstacles and by that we are rising and growing. But it is actually the opposite: the exertion of effort is in maintaining the point of adhesion with the Creator above all the difficulties and problems.

When I achieve the point where I annul myself before the upper, I enter the state called embryo, and that is how I remain, always

in this point. And no matter how many alien thoughts and problems arise, I must understand that all of them come from “There is none else besides Him,” and I must only annul myself above all the extraneous thoughts, events, and influences that are descending upon me.

And to the extent to which I continue to annul myself before the Creator more and more, I expand my adhesion with Him—from the first point called “embryo” and onward; it is as if my point of embryo expands; in other words, that same original seed grows and I fill all the alien desires and thoughts that arise within me with the power of faith and the force of bestowal. That is how the embryo grows.

Humor Is A Brilliance Of Mind

laitman_285.06Question: Humor is a gift that is impossible to develop. Is it inherent only to developed people?

Answer: Naturally. For example, animals have no sense of humor. They have a desire to play, or perhaps to imitate someone, but not a sense of humor.

Humor is inherent only in humans, but in a developed human. Humor is a conjugation of opposites that aren’t connected. But a person finds a special way to tie them together in the most unexpected way. And in this he sees a special charm, a brilliance of mind.

“I Will Give You The Stone Tablets”

laitman_740.02Torah, Exodus, 24:12 – 24:14: And the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me to the mountain and remain there, and I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments, which I have written to instruct them.”

So Moses and Joshua, his servant, arose, and Moses ascended to the mount of God.

And to the elders he said, “Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them.”

This is about the separation of various levels of governance. There is the same separation within a person as there is in society. There are common people, Levites, Cohens, and Moses within him. Yet, only the point called Moses enters the uppermost contact with the next level, and then the ascent begins.

It is written, “I will give you the stone tablets, the Law and the commandments.” The point called Moses gets included into the next degree that starts from the inanimate level (Domem – stony level, what is called Lev HaEven, the stony heart) and surrenders to the upper force that carves the commandments on it. This is the work of the Creator.

Moses is unable to carve on his heart (on the level of Lev HaEven) the words of the Torah, that is, the spiritual commandments that represent the ten Sefirot, the most corrected and most profound ones. After all, the basis of the next degree is the correction of a person on the deepest egoistic level.

70 years after the declaration of Israel’s independence warrants a deep look at our current state. Especially since earlier this week a U.S. President suddenly felt compelled to make a statement recognizing Israel’s right to exist. jpost.com #jpost #Anti-semitism

New Life #382 – Plays For Children
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Children have wonderful imaginations which are great for development and learning. They can easily be educated by watching theatrical plays that demonstrate interpersonal values such as connection, mutual giving, and a positive attitude toward others. It is also worthwhile to have them participate by asking them to imagine a better world, what is in it, and how it could work.
