The knife that cleanses the body of the ego
Is importance of the Creator.
Remove the peel—and bond with Him.
The conditions of coming out to the light are hidden
1,000 enter, but only 1 comes out
How?—Be attractive to the Creator!
Peel the ego off of you
Like removing peel from a fruit on Passover
Then you will be free!
“The monster will swallow and spew out”
After that, man
Will be able to correct it.
Does the Creator make mistakes?
The Light is at absolute rest—
So it cannot err!
Most important is to lose yourself!
Instead of yourself, you’ll acquire others,
In them, you’ll feel the world and the Creator
We’ll turn the guards’ hindrances into a bond
With prayer—then we won’t lose the friends
And will reach the summit
Since Abraham’s times
We lose friends at each degree!
That’s how the Head of the Soul is created
Moses fled his brethren’s snitching
For killing the Egyptian
The aim of global development is revelation of the One Good Force, the Creator, in unity of nations. This depends on unity of Jews—vehicles of the Creator’s revelation to the world. If #Jews are passive, they’ll be pressured by the nations until they fulfill their mission.
As mankind develops, it reaches despair and instinctively blames Abraham’s group for its miseries. The more developed the nations of the world are, the more they complain, demanding that the Jews fulfill their preordained mission.

My sons have defeated me:
By their unity, they’ve forced me
To be revealed in them!
We unite—Creator is closer.
We separate—Creator is farther.
This determines life!
The Creator is a concealed field
By uniting, we enter it,
And blend with it.
The Creator stood me up, like a baby
In front of Him. Waiting for me to take a step.
I stagger and cry …
How much to take from the treasury of the Creator?—
As much as you can give to the friends.
It is the fulfillment of the soul.
Reflected light sparkles,
striking out of desire the sparks of light and love.
I learn from the ego to be a faithful servant of the Creator.
When I learn from it, I’ll become like the Creator!
Great wisdom: to grow under the skin of selfishness
Fruit—the desire for love and bestowal.
To peel away, after it matures.
Our #world has become unsuitable to live in.
But it needn’t be corrected—
Let’s rise to the upper world!
In exile we feel growing distance between us and bestowal, the Creator’s greatness, in order to experience the exile and strive to come out of it. Therefore, exile ends in the sense of total debility and despair! This is the end of the exile—Egyptian darkness!
Building the Creator’s greatness is a lifetime’s work. All of my inherent qualities exist only for this. The image of the Creator’s greatness is the image of my #soul. The soul is the form of the group, 10 Sefirot, and its filling is the greatness of the Creator, upper light.
Sensation of the Creator’s greatness lies in constant thought about Him, like a mother who must leave her baby, but her heart stays with it. Likewise, we’re always with the Creator. His greatness determines this state. On the priorities scale, nothing can compare to Him.
#Passover is realization of the Creator’s greatness. Inasmuch as we increase the sensation of His greatness between us, that’s how much we will advance. If one’s life is guided by the Creator’s greatness, he never errs. All his states will be stages of spiritual progress.
To clean the husk of intentions off myself—
Barriers to unite with the group—
The condition of breaking through to Him. Pesach!
The Creator’s greatness gives pleasure
In ridding oneself of the evil-Pharaoh
Though the notion of fleeing isn’t clear…
Even being born with a point in the heart
You are one of thousands entering the class
Will you complete it? Only if the Creator wishes it.
The impulse to destroy the ego is that same ego!
The right way is to turn to the Creator
On your own you’ll only double it!
49 impure gates close us in the group,
50th turns evil to love.
All the gates reveal the Creator’s greatness.
What a gift to be born with a point in the heart—
It’s the Creator giving me a chance!
How do I not miss it? I worry…
Humanity doesn’t know #Israel’s mission and why it hates #Jews.
Concealment from above is in force.
Throughout #history, Abraham’s group also forgot this mission and didn’t understand why others hate them.
But #AntiSemitism will disappear when the Creator’s plan is implemented
Abraham’s group attained unity (1st Temple). It then fell into hatred—fall of the 1st and 2nd Temples. Then for 2,000 years it mingled with the nations. Now the nation of Israel is starting to unite, followed by all nations. The nation of Israel must correct humanity.
The aim of global development is revelation of the One Good Force, the Creator, in unity of #nations. This depends on unity of #Jews—vehicles of the Creator’s #revelation to the world. If Jews are passive, they’ll be pressured by the nations until they fulfill their mission.
The ego is a monster, devouring all my efforts
Then disgorging them at once
Turning them from reception to bestowal, to my joy!
The ego stems from the Creator
It isn’t harmful, but only if used
Why it’s called “help against self”
#EGO #Egoist #consciousness
The ego devours, #competition begets #wars
I know how to give everyone EVERYTHING
And not at the expense of others
From Twitter, 4/10/18
We must try to attribute everything that comes to us—everything we feel, that is awakened in the mind and in the heart, the whole world around us—to a single force, besides which there is nothing else.
Everything comes from this good and benevolent force, for the sole purpose of us connecting everything that happens to this single source, and in so doing, revealing Him.
If we attribute everything to a single upper force, then we cease to control our actions, thoughts, and desires, since all our thoughts and desires, all our efforts, are aimed only at annulling ourselves, clearing a space for “there is none else besides Him.”
And then we reveal Him in the desire to bestow, in new sensory organs, in the qualities of Bina. So that even if we don’t have a shirt, we don’t need it—only to have self-annulment that allows us to reveal the Creator.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 3/26/18, Writings of Rabash, “Why We Need ‘Reply unto Your Heart,’ to Know that the Lord, He Is God, in the Work”
We value such states when we are full of strength, knowledge, feelings, energy, happiness, and inspiration. But we do not take into account that all this comes to us from Above, from the Light. When the Light disappears and the Creator does not give all this from Above but requires us to do our own work from below, so that we ourselves will place Him to rule over us becoming His people, then we organize ourselves as the people chosen by the Creator.
And this work is done exactly in such states when we feel ourselves insignificant, empty, sleepy, with a deaf heart, powerless to do something because of the feeling of heaviness in the soul and in the whole body. It is then that we have an opportunity to perform the “awakening from below” without the “awakening from Above” in order to become the people of the Creator.*

To act “Lishma” means with the force of faith. That is, being in concealment I do not see and do not understand anything, and specifically this allows me to rise above this world, above my knowledge, above primitivity, limited in relation to the spiritual mind. Therefore, we need some sort of lifting mechanism to be able to move to another level of existence and perception of reality.
To rise to another dimension, exit the familiar three-dimensional coordinate system, free ourselves from its limitations, and move to a new, wider perception of reality, we need new instruments of perception that are called “faith above reason.”
It is impossible to understand with our earthy mind what it is, because we are incapable of existing in a non-dimensional space and seeing what disagrees with our internal program. Therefore, it is written, “Taste and see that the Creator is good.” This can be achieved only with the force of faith.*
With Gratitude to the Creator for the Creation
If a person advances to “Lishma” wishing to work with the force of faith above reason, with so-called “devotion of the soul,” then even before he reaches it, by just aspiring to it, he gives great contentment to the Creator. It is even greater than it will be afterward from his subsequent spiritual attainments.
It is like a baby who gives more pleasure to the father and mother than an adult child. After all, the adult acts with his mind, his calculations, and a baby—with his naïve devotion, which is very attractive and touches the parents.
Therefore, we should highly value the opportunity given to us even to simply talk, think, or read about spiritual concepts that are above our world. This is a great privilege. A lot of people come to this, try and leave. Moreover, they begin to slander this methodology.
People do not understand what harm they do to themselves by speaking poorly about Kabbalah. After all, the Creator purposely arranged all of creation, all the worlds, and a common soul in order to bring the creation to His degree. And they neglect this entire system, this method, all the conditions prepared from Above. It turns out that they strike out the entire creation created for them by the Creator.
If a person is simply not yet ready and knows nothing about Kabbalah, this is alright. But the one who has already been acquainted with it and has touched this wisdom and then left and began to slander it, by this he shows disregard for the Creator.**

New Life 965 – Spiritual Pioneering
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
Spiritual pioneers are those who want to bring love to everyone by attaining adherence to the Higher Force. It is here that the Shechina dwells, the network of communication that is built between us from the connection of our hearts and desires. The wisdom of Kabbalah explains how to achieve this great goal of existence. Rather than breaking stones in order to build a state as earlier pioneers did, spiritual pioneers must break their hearts in order to connect them to each other and to the Creator.
