My Facebook Page: “World Kabbalah Convention 2018 in Tel Aviv”

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 2/8/18

In these turbulent times of escalating social division, The World Kabbalah Convention is taking place in Israel. February 20-22, at the Tel Aviv Convention Center. This annual event is unparalleled in how it brings together thousands of people from most countries of the world, to experience a unity that is beyond borders, beyond nations. A unity that is rooted in learning how to sense the innate wiring for connection we have, guided by the authentic Wisdom of Kabbalah.

My Facebook Page: “Breaking Israel News Article On Poland Law”

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 2/7/18

The Book of Zohar explains why the Polish Holocaust law is just another expression of an inherent demand that the world has towards Israel.

The Zohar writes that “Israel is the heart of the whole world, just as the organs of the body could not exist in the world even for a moment without the heart, so all the nations cannot exist in the world without Israel.” In other words, just as the role of the heart in the human body is to be the driving force for blood to circulate throughout the body, the role of Israel is to drive the force of unity and human connection that brings livelihood and abundance to all nations of the world.

Thus, anti-Semitism should be interpreted differently. It is like an alert mechanism that turns on when human society is nearing a state of crisis. And while not all anti-Semites can articulate it, they somehow sense that the world’s problems have everything to do with the Jewish people.

To See From One End Of The World To The Other

laitman_224Inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human degrees in spirituality mean the measure of our participation in the system of reality. At the inanimate level, I reveal this system only passively, being under the total control of the upper force.

I am like an embryo in the mother’s womb whose entire work consists of complete self-annulment. This is work on the inanimate level: to the extent that I annul myself, I reveal the upper one.

At the vegetative degree, I maintain the inanimate level because everything comes out of it, but I already perform special actions that allow me to more deeply reveal the upper one. It means that I become a plant.

However, my growth happens in accordance with the upper one: whatever changes I discover in Him, I also change in the same way. I always maintain similarity with Him, that is, adhesion, like a plant that constantly reaches out to the light, to the sun.

Later we will see that the whole world: inanimate nature, plants, animals, and humans, everyone apart from Kabbalists, obediently repeat all the movements of the Creator, meaning that they exist in adhesion with the upper force. However, a Kabbalist must consciously reach adhesion with the Creator.

At the inanimate level of spirituality, we can connect only through our annulment. By annulling myself, I can enter the other and not be felt in him, but then communication between us is also impossible. A connection arises between us, which does not yet lead to any consequences. However, it merely provides the basis for subsequent forms of communication.

When we mutually connect in such an inanimate way, annulling ourselves to each other, we reach contact with the Creator, only we do not feel it yet.

There is a common feeling that we are under the control of some kind of power, governance, but no more than that. Although this already is a spiritual state, the general Light of Nefesh, there is a very limited perception and understanding in it—just a feeling that you are in the spiritual environment. However, there is already contact with the upper force.

The annulment of a person before the Creator is called “holy still,” an inanimate state of holiness. He becomes absolutely speechless, accepting everything that the upper one does. Therefore, he feels that he exists inside the upper one like an embryo in the mother’s womb who “sees from one end of the world to the other, a candle burns above his head and he is taught the entire Torah .” All of it is because he has completely annulled himself at his degree.

The Only True Kabbalah

Laitman_112Question: Why don’t you cooperate with other similar organizations?

Answer: I do not know of any organizations that really engage in Kabbalah. Of course, there are people who pose as Kabbalists, but in reality, they are either religious followers or psychologists. There are also those who use the guise of Kabbalah to get rich.

As for real Kabbalah, only our organization and me personally engage in it. I am not trying to brag by saying this. I am only saying that I am following the method of Baal HaSulam and Rabash, and consider this method the only true Kabbalah.
