#Spiritualwork_ML Fear is necessary! It pushes me! I cannot be rid of it! I can only replace egoistic #fear to altruistic: the fear of not bestowing contentment to the Creator (Yira’a). Only then will fear for myself disappear. Thus the Creator compels us to escape the ego.

#Creator evokes in me a picture of a corrupted world. I ask for correction. The Creator corrects my qualities to those similar to His. I see He fills the whole world. Then he reveals in me a new corrupted quality and once more I see a dark world… Thus I attain #Creator’s_Work

#PROGNOSES_ML 2013: In the future, he who carries out integral education among the people will lead. Thus the state will come to equivalence with nature and enter a sphere of congruence with its forces. #leadership #politics #Educational

#Spiritualwork_ML The Creator made the end state, & from it builds the initial one & each step toward the end goal. Each state is determined by the end one that we must attain. Thus we must regard everything, by exerting in “faith above reason”–the end state above the present.

#Creator’s_Revelation. We have no contact w/ upper force. What is revealed is called “Creator” (Bore) from words Bo-Re – “come and see.” As a result of exerting to unite in a group, we build the form Bo-Re inside us–and attain it. That is, the entire spiritual work is btwn us.

#Attaining_reality. There’s no outside world. We have 4 levels of desires: still, vegetative, animate, human. We sense them against the background of white light (Creator). Kabbalah teaches us to grow closer by the intention to “bestow” w/ the white light till we dissolve in Him

The #Creator stirs us toward development. If we don’t follow, it reverses. If Poland’s Jews had listened to Baal HaSulam and moved to Israel they would’ve survived. If Israeli govt were to institute his educational method we’d be celebrating the 70th anniversary in a new country.

#Kabbalah Our nature is the will to enjoy. The intention (for myself = #ego, for others = altruism) depends on the person. Changing the intention is #spiritual_advancement. This is the work. Don’t confuse it with physical actions where the intention (for me/you) isn’t changed.

Last Friday I had a warm meeting with the new students from the Kabbalah L’Am academy who came in from many cities throughout Israel. I discovered a new level of readiness. I liked their serious, high-level questions. Good luck, my dears! Together! #kabbalah #Israel

Worlds exist if one creates them from corrected desires. A spiritual degree is revealed: pure & impure worlds of ABYA, and the soul inside them. The worlds surround the soul, sustain it, form an environment. The impure worlds pertain to the Creator, stirring us toward correction.

#Truth. One sees the world through one’s qualities. As qualities change so does the world. One sees one’s reflected qualities in everything around. Escaping this is only by the quality of bestowal. “Don’t judge others ’til you’ve walked in their shoes”-otherwise you see yourself

As soon as the 10 makes a connection- minimal equivalence to the upper light, it is revealed in this #connection. The Creator is revealed in it. There’s no other way! And the Creator’s concealment is felt in the 10, in the absence of connection, as preparation for a new state.

On the way to revealing the Upper World/Creator, many problems arise–so as to fathom the qualities of love/bestowal from the ego’s qualities. It is a science: #Kabbalah. Learning spiritual ascents via descents: “there was evening, & there was morning,” understanding & attainment

How Does Kabbalah Relate To Health?

laitman_751.1Question: How does Kabbalah relate to a healthy lifestyle?

Answer: Kabbalah refers to health very simply, practically and mundanely. It says: “If you have a healthy spirit, then you will also have a healthy body.” After all, the body is a continuation of the spirit. However, this is the ideal.

This is not easy because the single spirit, the single soul, connects us to each other. As long as humanity is in a broken state, even the greatest Kabbalist connected with the entire world by bestowal and love, nevertheless, will also be sick and suffer since the “common body” of humanity is struck with egoism.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 2/12/17

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Must we acquire spiritual senses to read The Book of Zohar or is The Book of Zohar what shapes the spiritual senses?

Answer: It is both this and that. The Book of Zohar shapes and develops spiritual senses, and simultaneously explains what the person perceives.

Question: Is it worthwhile reading The Book of Zohar independently? Is this liable to be harmful?

Answer: No, this will not be harmful and there is no need to be afraid. You can listen to The Book of Zohar lessons that we broadcast regularly.

Question: What does my ability to perceive depend on?

Answer: Your perception ability depends on the degree to which your senses expand.

Question: Does contempt for the opportunity of developing through the power of The Book of Zohar lead to the development through the painful way of suffering?

Answer: Development is not necessary through The Book of Zohar; development happens through studying Kabbalah, and The Zohar is one of the Kabbalah books that helps a person discover a perception of the upper world.

Question: Is it enough for me to read The Book of Zohar regularly to achieve true happiness?

Answer: No, the main thing is for you to be in a group. In this way you will expand your perception and and begin to feel the upper world through the group.

Question: Can The Book of Zohar reveal and show me the connections between people in this world at the level of the upper world, which governs their destiny?

Answer: Yes, but this again is in a group. The connection between friends creates a sense of a higher state in a person in which he perceives forces and characteristics of the upper world that are revealed in a group.

Question: What is the most important thing in The Book of Zohar? Is it its origin or the content itself?

Answer: The most important thing in The Book of Zohar is the upper Light, which descends on a person through its proper use.

Question: Have all the texts of The Book of Zohar been deciphered?

Answer: Yes, absolutely all of them have been deciphered. None of the text in The Book of Zohar speaks directly about what a person reads; the meaning is allegorically concealed in its words.

Question: When I read The Book of Zohar, answers to questions are revealed to me, but then additional questions appear and my mind becomes chaotic. Should I try to make order of this or simply turn off my intellect and let The Book organize everything itself?

Answer: You will not be able to do anything with what you got from reading. The best thing is to start studying correctly.
