My Thoughts On Twitter, 4/4/18

Those brief moments when the world pressures us and we come together are examples of how we should treat each other every day. #antisemitism

We don’t find in man anything that is not found in an animal, except the effort to connect with the Creator. It’s inherent only to man! Hence, man must be evaluated only by his yearning for the Creator. Only that exalts him above the animal world! (Baal HaSulam) #SpiritualWork_ML

My latest in @TimesofIsrael
The Jewish state is one that concerns itself with unity above everything else, while also allowing for the fullest expression of each individual’s uniqueness. #Israel

The Prayer The Creator Hears

arava-convention_931.01A person does not automatically turn to the Creator as soon as he feels he cannot cope. He just falls into despair, he will either sleep or cry from powerlessness.

Only if there are friends close by who are not in a descent and despair like he is, then their support, together with his desperate state, will form in him a correct appeal to the Creator.

This is the only way it is possible. A person alone will never turn to the Creator, neither in a good nor a bad state. He can either thank or curse the Creator, but it will not be a prayer.

A true prayer must consist of ten Sefirot as a spiritual vessel: the nine higher Sefirot and Malchut. Therefore, he must be impressed by nine friends and attach his empty, suffering, dark Malchut to them, and so an appeal to the Creator will be born in it.

A prayer is a spiritual vessel in which the full HaVaYaH, the ten Sefirot, must act. Therefore, a person cannot pray alone or for himself; it is simply impossible.

The true prayer, which the Creator hears, can arise only when one is included in the group and receives from the friends their intentions, impressions, and support. Then with his lack and with what he receives from the first nine Sefirot of the friends, their support and properties, he can turn to the Creator.

After all, one cannot use just his bad state. But if he connects with his friends, then his prayer is no longer a bad feeling. The Creator does not harm us, but gives us an occasion to unite with friends and with Him. Therefore, prayer can only be within the society and about the society.

It is here that we need Arvut, mutual guarantee. If we achieve it, then everything will continue smoothly.

The tension on the Israel-Gaza border that materialized as 2018’s #Passover set in is a clear reminder that Israel’s enemies haven’t changed their plans. We can expect more hostility to organize against Israel if the people of #Israel continue to resist unification. #unity

Abraham set the foundation of unity and connection, in which “love your friend as yourself” (#Leviticus 19:18) and “love covers all crimes” (#Proverbs 10:12) were the leading principles for its adherents to live by, harmoniously under a single tent, in one connection. #Torah #Bible

If you can fathom the future of #technology, you can immediately spot the upcoming social #crisis. Masses will go into indefinite #unemployment, and modern #economics will have no answers for them. #futureofwork #AI

The Light creates
Something opposite and something similar to it,
Learn to control it.
#wisdom #motivation

I envy the friends
I’m proud to be among them
I hope to one day be like them

I cancel the ego to be like the Creator.
Is that not even greater ego?
In doubt…

In order to construct an authentic State of #Israel, we first need to reinstate the values that originally united us as a Jewish people. These are #values initially established by #Abraham and his group 3,800 years ago, which is why he is considered as the father of the nation.

Friends annoy me
Love them I must
To sense the Creator instead of them

While it may seem like a silent revolution, these changes promise a socio-economic earthquake the likes of which humanity has never seen before. The virtual-technological future is gradually taking over the very foundations of the global #economy. #UBI

I drown in the ego’s current
The friends throw a rope
I pray for them, not for myself!

Envy forces me to exert efforts.
Envy is useful if it leads to the goal.
I cherish envy: it is the rope my friends throw as I’m drowning.
I hang on to it because I want the friends to be higher and stronger, for my hopes rest with them.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

The Light creates
Its opposite and its likeness,
Learn to master it.
#wisdomquotes #motivation

I distance myself from the enemy, it’s warm
I draw closer to a friend, it’s warm
Warmth is deceptive
#wisdomquotes #Kabbalah

I envy the friends
Proud to be among them
Hoping to be like them

Responsibility In The Integral Society

 Question: If we imagine an integral, analog society, then how can people be different from one another based on the level of social responsibility?

Answer: An analog system is a common system where all inputs and outputs are interconnected and are defined such that there is no difference between them. Some reaction takes place, and the whole system stabilizes, reaching a certain state. This is an integrated analog system.

People differ according to their nature-given ability: the power of thought and its development, interaction with one another, personality, and many other characteristics. However, we should never lecture or force a person—we should only gradually raise him. It is a very long process.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 10/22/18

laitman_282.02Question: What does it mean to seek a solution on the next level if it is hidden? How can we identify the next level of agreement between us?

Answer: You only need to invest effort in your yearning for the next level, and the upper Light will correct everything.

Question: Is “the common intelligence” that is born in a circle limited somehow?

Answer: It is limited only by our ability to approach each other, not in any other way. When we approach each other seriously, we reach the intelligence of the Creator, which is the maximal characteristic of bestowal and love that becomes clothed in us.

Question: How should one react to a participant in a circle who is inclined to doubt the method of the workshop itself, who talks about the uselessness of the people sitting around him, and considers what they say to be foolishness he doesn’t want to hear?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah says that you must “blunt its (egoism’s) teeth.” If a person objects to the general rules that the Kabbalists ordered us to keep, he should leave us. These general rules have already existed for thousands of years; if he doesn’t want to carry them out, he should leave. On this topic, there is nothing to discuss.

Question: What is the principle you use to choose questions for a workshop?

Answer: I know approximately what the shared general level of development of the world group is, and I give the members of the group a task that is one level higher. It is no more than one level because otherwise the question would not be understood and would put them into a state of depression that would not lead to the desired result. The group members need to make an effort to understand the question through their connection, which could even be the answer.

Question: Is the reason I don’t understand the Kabbalistic texts because I have not been investing sufficient work in the group of ten?

Answer: If you don’t understand Kabbalistic texts, you need to read them again and again, many times, and sometimes even copy them, adapting them within you somehow.
