#Freewill_ML
I don’t have the proper desire for spirituality. I can desire anything except that. Envy, pride and ambition that are revealed in the group help me attain the spiritual world, while elevated, pure desires outside the group slow me down!

#Freewill_ML We don’t inherently have a need for spirituality. This need comes from the Creator as a desire to reveal Him. Beito – natural path of development, or Ahishena – accelerated path, by mutual guarantee, connection with the group, one gets the proper spiritual needs.

Signs of entering the upper world: Pesach Matza Maror. Matza: war against ego. Maror: bitterness of inability to unite. Pesach (Pasach): exit to freedom from ego
The Creator gives us the force to flee (Pasach). Matza and Maror are the obligation to feel the bitterness of slavery.

#Spiritualwork_ML #Passover
To rise above ego and reveal connection between us, we turn to the Creator, not Pharaoh. Creator and Pharaoh are two sides of one phenomenon. Spiritual work is simple and specific. The hard part is turning to the Creator—that’s where Pharaoh hides.

#Spiritualwork_ML #Passover
Attaining the Creator is discovering unity and love, which don’t exist in our state. We live in the opposite world. The Creator that will be revealed is now being revealed in the opposite form. He’s the one that broke the Soul—He’s Pharaoh!

#Spiritualwork_ML #Passover #Kabbalah
We have to chew Maror, attempts to unite, feel the whole bitterness of hard work and failures. We soften and, out of despair, turn to the Creator. Only after the hard work do we start feeling slavery and the need for help in order to flee!

#Spiritualwork_ML #Passover #Kabbalah
First the group feels progress toward unity, 4 years of plenty, but then they start seeing that they can’t unite. They cry out from this work, since unity is beyond them. Then their cry rises up to the Creator and they move towards salvation!

The Book of Zohar explains that the Jews shape the fate of the world: “Just as the organs of the body cannot exist for one moment without the heart, so all nations cannot exist in the world without Israel.” #GFCA2018 #Antisemitism #Europe facebook.com

We have become a nation based on the tenet of “love thy neighbor as yourself,” and only the return to this tenet can eradicate the world’s hatred towards us.

“Scandinavian Countries To Ban Circumcision And Kosher Slaughter”

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 3/19/18

The Scandinavian countries are on their way to becoming the first countries in Europe to ban circumcision and kosher slaughter. And you can add rejecting five Israeli choreographies from the art festival in Norway to this newsflash.

Do not let politics fool you. Hatred towards Jews is building up in the hearts of Europeans, creating tremendous pressure with no means of letting up. Even if they are not aware of this, haters of Israel sense that we hold the key to their good future.

According to Kabbalah, anti-Semitism is not a passing phenomenon but rather a natural dynamic: when Jews unite above all conflicts and differences, a positive force of unity spreads throughout human society. On the other hand, when we are emotionally separated and distanced from each other, we evoke negativity in the world, which repeatedly strikes us as a burst of anti-Semitism.

But our ears will not listen. The irrational hatred that arises as it does today and which takes on the form of new laws directed at the Jewish community, reminds us the hard way that we have a role, and even though we would be happy to shake it off, it is impossible.

We are a people that carries within it a spiritual potential – the seed of love for all people of the world. We have become a nation based on the tenet of “love thy neighbor as yourself,” and only the return to this tenet can eradicate the world’s hatred towards us.

The Book of Zohar explains that the Jews shape the fate of the world: “Just as the organs of the body cannot exist for one moment without the heart, so all nations cannot exist in the world without Israel.”

When we unite, we drive the world towards unity and a great abundance begins to flow. Division between us, however, creates division in the world and blocks the channels of abundance, leading to wars and hatred. As written by the greatest Kabbslist of the 20th century, Yehuda Ashlag: “The Israeli nation has been established as a ‘conduit,’ which at the same rate that Israel themselves are unified, so they transfer their power to the rest of the nations.”

What Does The Creator Conceal From Us?

laitman_571.08Question: What exactly does the Creator conceal from us? What is the central point of the concealment?

Answer: “There is none else beside Him” is the central point. There is nothing else to hide from us.

Question: Is egoism also concealed from a person?

Answer: No. When you start working on the revelation of the Creator, you see how much your egoism constantly distracts you. Ordinary people do not believe that they are egoists because they do not yearn to reveal the Creator.

New Life #953 – Bringing Children Into The World

New Life #953 – Bringing Children Into The World
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

New life comes from the power of desire. Each child brings forth a unique spiritual component and alters the destiny of the family. The connection between the feminine and masculine forces as well as the higher power grows every day during pregnancy. The feminine force must be ready to accept the masculine force and the masculine force must have the right influence on the feminine force in order to for conception and pregnancy to succeed. The wisdom of Kabbalah advises that partners who want to have children commit to a process of mutual spiritual development.
