Spiritual progress is difference btwn ascents/descents, in mind/sensation, desire to bestow/receive, sweetness of bestowal/bitterness of reception. For/against the will to enjoy. Chewing ego’s evil, bitterness, & in disturbances attaining honey—adhesion with the Creator
The ego must be opposed with: Creator, group, mutual guarantee, faith, bestowal, love, all the forces of the upper world. So as to direct against the #ego all its attention, do everything against it by drawing on means opposite to it. #Kabbalah #Pesach
Only the patient attain the goal, seeing no other path but that of mutual guarantee. This is the bitter period, “Maror.” The right unification in a group builds faith in everyone—the quality of bestowal above the ego. They will escape the ego (#exile) into the Promised Land.
#Spiritual ascent hinges on importance of the Creator, quality of #love & #bestowal. Importance of the Creator hinges on unity in the group. Unity means to exit oneself into the friends, which is tantamount to exiting into the upper world, #faith above reason, the Creator.
#Sharansky: I directed Sokhnut’s work from repatriation to strengthening the bonds of Jewry.
Me: A sound decision, as there’s no repatriation! The next sound step: to explain to the Jews of the world the cause of #antisemitism, and how to change the hatred toward them to respect.
The essence of the science #Kabbalah
#Baal_Sulam: Science of Kabbalah is the causal order of the descent of the Upper Forces, subject to permanent and absolute laws related to each other and aimed at revealing the Upper Governing Force (the Creator) to man in this #world.
When the time of #Messiah comes, even infants will reveal the wisdom of Kabbalah (Zohar, Vaera). The wisdom of the Zohar was concealed till now, but in the last generation we will attain the secrets of #Torah – what our predecessors did not attain. (MARHU. Tree of Life. Preface)
ADL reports that anti-Semitic crimes have grown by 60%. Explanations differ from one writer to the next: white or black, Trump opponent or supporter, everybody wants to use him to blame the other side. But Kabbalah says the true cause lies with the Jews themselves!
