Psalm_62 For God waits in silence my soul only; from Him is my #salvation. Only He is my rock & salvation. How long will they assail me? They bless with mouth but inwardly they curse. My soul, wait for GOD only, hope is in Him. Pour your heart out to Him! You, Lord, are refuge

Psalm_61. Hear, O God, my cry, heed my prayer! From the end of the earth I call to You, in my faint heart lead me to the high rock. I will dwell in Your tent forever, take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. So I will sing #praise to Thy name forever, paying my vows day by day.

Psalm 97.The #Lord is King! The Heavens declare His justice. Be ashamed, idol worshipers. Loving the LORD, hate evil! He saves the souls of the godly from the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, gladness for the upright in heart. Be glad, righteous ones, exalt His holy name

#Psalm_96. Sing to the Lord a new song. Tell of His wonders among nations. Glory and majesty before Him, strength and beauty in His sanctuary. Let heavens and earth rejoice, all trees will sing. Before GOD, for He is coming to judge the earth with justice, and people -with truth.

Psalm_60 GOD, You rejected us, You crushed us in anger. Restore us! So Your beloved may be delivered. Have You forsaken us and do not go forth with our armies, O God? Give us help against enemies, for man’s help is vain. In God we’ll be strengthened, He will tread on our enemies.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

The way towards a less violent in America goes beyond laws and regulations. America must read the writing on the wall and initiate a massive socio-educational endeavor to infuse its culture with new examples, norms and values.
Full post

#Israel is building a legal defense network against Western pro-Palestinian organizations & BDS, who aim to delegitimize Israel as a state. #Kabbalah: if we don’t show the world an example of unity, we will turn the whole world against us, and they will scatter us.

#Crisis_solution #Fake news leads to apathy to reality, inability to tell truth from fiction, the notion of “fact” disappears, anyone can simulate any event. Thus, our #world exposes itself, forcing us to create the upper world between us—above the #ego’s lies.

#Automation will force us to implement #UBI (universal basic income). But UBI brings #inequality, irresponsibility, passivity? negates meaning of life? UBI is inevitable! But we must also implement universal mandatory education of the people!

Without a human environment, a child would grow up to be an animal. but because he has the desire to absorb the environment, it builds his world for him. Thus, to reveal the upper world we need an environment of Kabbalists that would shape in us the ability to see the upper world

The upper world is revealed only in the integration of desires of different ppl. That is why forming a group is so important, for one alone cannot attain even the 1st spiritual degree. Hence, “love your friend” is a Kabbalistic directive to reveal the upper world & the #Creator.

Everyone has 1 spiritual spark. But by uniting it with 9 sparks of the friends, one receives the strength sufficient to reveal the #spiritual world. And so everyone in the group, having 1 spark, attaches the 9 sparks and acquires the desire, force to reveal the spiritual world.

#Reality_ML When coming to study #Kabbalah, man is ready to learn the mystical upper forces, angels, spirits–to reveal the supernatural realm. And he has no idea that the revelation of the Creator/Upper World happens not mystically, but in the special bond btwn Kabbalists.

#Reality_ML The #Zohar describes our (current, egoistic) state as sleeping, with our eyes turned inward. Indeed, we only see and care about what’s happening in us, in the desire to enjoy. But #Kabbalah allows us to see what’s happening outside of us—the Upper World.

#Love is allowing another to integrate in you without any calculations/restrictions. And then we form a common spiritual vessel in which we both sense the upper world & force above this material world. After that, the material body can die, but we’re already alive! #ValentinesDay

Thus, the redemption of #Israel and its greatness depends only on the study of Kabbalah. And the fall of Israel happens only as a result of degrading #Kabbalah. #Jewish

Bolstering the external part of the world (nations of the world) results in the destruction of the Jews, who are deemed redundant in the world. All the horrific destructions and killings take place, to which our generation was witness! #Jews

If a Jew lowers the importance of #Kabbalah which is about the soul’s correction, relative to the external Torah which is only about mechanical observance, he degrades the inner part of the world (Israel) & bolsters the external part–the nations that will degrade the #Jews

Those who practice the inner Torah, Kabbalah, elevate the #soul, raising the people of #Israel, and the nations of the world recognize Israel’s merit. But if they practice only the external Torah, the opposite happens. #Jewish

#Humanity is divided into internal (Israel) and external (nations). #Israel is divided into Kabbalists and the rest. The nations are divided into the righteous and the harmful ones.

Past generations were correcting the ego with the revealed #Torah, i.e. fulfilling the commandments in practice, and our generation can correct its mature ego with the concealed Torah, i.e. by studying #Kabbalah.
Our generation is the most #egoistic, and that is precisely why it is capable of comprehending the necessity of correction.

Ego’s correction takes place over 6000 years, from Adam, i.e. 5788 years ago. The method of correction is described by Rashbi (2C BE), ARI (16C). In 20th century, Baal HaSulam wrote commentaries on their works, making #Kabbalah suitable for practical correction of man’s #ego.

Baal HaSulam Preface to The Book of #Zohar: The method of world’s correction comes down to correction of ego, man’s evil nature. The Creator is revealed in the corrected ego. The method of ego’s correction & Creator’s revelation is called #Kabbalah (article numeration ahead)

#Love is a strictly Kabbalistic notion. It means to accept another’s desires as your own, and fulfill them up to their total inclusion into one common desire. This is possible only if they both integrate with the Creator. So, “love your friend as yourself” is only possible here!

If a Jew studies the internal part of the Torah, #Kabbalah, he causes the elevation of the internal part of the world, Israel, over the external part of the world–and the nations recognize Israel’s #spirituality,

Psalm_95 Let us bow before our Maker. For He is our GOD & we are His people. O if you would heed His voice! For forty years I loathed this generation and I said: it is a people lost in their heart, they don’t know My ways. And I swore in My anger that they will not enter My rest.

Psalm_94 #GOD of Vengeance, Judge of the Earth, recompense to the proud! How long shall they exult? LORD knows thoughts of man, so vain. Blessed is whom You chasten and whom You teach Torah. If the LORD were not my help, my soul would dwell in the grave. But GOD is my stronghold!

The State Of Israel—The Place For Revelation Of The Creator

Laitman_417From the writings of Baal HaSulam it is apparent what tremendous meaning he gave to the State of Israel, the people of Israel, and its land being united. In this union lies a very powerful spiritual charge. That is why it should not be permitted to separate the people of Israel from the State of Israel, from the land of Israel, or from our international, global Kabbalistic group, which represents all people and nationalities.

How is it that the entire world relates to the State of Israel? All acknowledge that the land of Israel is unique since it is considered holy by all three main religions. But why is the State of Israel, which just turned 70 years old, so important?

For Baal HaSulam, the concept of the state of Israel was holy, he even had a Shabbat knife with the inscription “State of Israel.” In returning to this land and to Zionism, he saw another very important step toward the revelation of the Creator.

It is because a place appeared where real unity and brotherly love “as one man with one heart” could be established. Initially, it applies to the people of Israel, who must realize this unity first in order to serve as an example for the entire world.

The world demands this from us without realizing it. This is the sole reason for the existence of anti-Semitism, which doesn’t disappear from history’s stage as time passes, but instead strengthens and becomes sharper. The success of the people of Israel and its existence in the land of Israel depends on this understanding. Without it, there is no place for us here.

Complain To The One Who Created Us

laitman_272The world is beginning to feel that it has reached a dead end. It turns out that there is no democracy, no liberalism. What have we come to from allowing the mass media and oligarchs to freely run rampant?

After a decade, they will again gather in Davos and proclaim: “Now 99% of the total capital is owned by 1% of the population, and soon all 100% will come into our hands. All the rest can die from hunger. We, of course, feel sorry for them, but there is nothing we can do about it. This is an egoistic path of development. If you dislike it, complain to the Creator.”

The rich themselves will say: “You want change, but it’s not in our hands. We are not at fault; we are the same egoists like everyone else. You would have done the same in our place. All the money has accumulated with us because the desire to enjoy obligated us to act in this way. Complain to the one who created us.” Perhaps then, those unfortunate people who have not a crumb left will understand that they need to turn to the Creator.

To Comprehend Universal Consciousness

763.1Question: Do we have the opportunity to comprehend the universal mind and learn how to correctly perceive, respond, and build our behavior in society and society itself?

Answer: If we look only at our life and at our limited possibilities and properties, then the future “does not shine” for us.

We see what is happening in the world: egoism grows and people indulge in it, no one is going to limit it and cannot do so, and no one can manage the world intelligently.

If there are some great personalities who understand this, their influence on society is so small that the chance of coming to a world correction is almost zero.

The wisdom of Kabbalah speaks of very interesting and rather revolutionary things. It explains that there is nothing outside. All that I observe and everything that appears to me—are my internal properties. Absolutely everything is inside me. But I see this as inanimate, plant, animal, and human nature that is outside only to be able to feel more, because I cannot see this inside of me.

If I begin to know the outer world as my inner one, to expand my participation in it, and to relate to the world with good connection and love, then I begin to feel these qualities in myself. They come back to me from the outside.

I perceive them in myself and thus I understand that, in addition to my true consciousness, i.e., a large information field, there is nothing outside, and I exist with respect to it. And all other creatures, including humans, exist only in me as my internal properties.

When one starts to get insight into this, one understands that there are no contradictions here—you just see other people who have certain properties and seem to exist, like you, but in reality you are one in one whole mind.

According to Kabbalah, humanity will come to a state when they will be convinced that they are under threat of destruction. But people cannot destroy themselves because it contradicts the general development program. Thus, people will understand that they have to move into such a relationship that will give them the opportunity to begin to feel themselves existing at the next level —not only in the power of reception, but in the power of bestowal.

And then between these two planes—the lower (egoistic) and the higher (altruistic)—we can exist in such a way that egoism will be directed to the benefit of love and bestowal because we need to feel others and know what to give to them and how to be with them in the right communication.

New Life 941 – How Does Man Change Internally?

New Life 941 – How Does Man Change Internally?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

In previous generations, people had stability at work, married once, and were less likely to desire change. These days, the desire to enjoy, which is inherent in all of us, develops constantly and our lives are always changing. We want to look good in the eyes of others, but eventually this pleasure also fades away. Eventually, we ask about the meaning of our lives, and this leads us to study the wisdom of Kabbalah. We learn how to acquire the attributes of the Creator and see reality differently. We discover the upper force, learn about the power of love, and become included in eternity, revealing the secret of life.
