Do Kabbalistic Amulets Exist?

laitman_600.04Question: Do Kabbalistic amulets exist? Do red strings help?

Answer: Nothing helps! Absolutely nothing! Believe me. Try to tie a red string on yourself and wrap yourself in red rags. Nothing will help!

Question: Yet, can it help psychologically?

Answer: Anything can help psychologically. You can make a toga and wear it like in Ancient Rome. But then what?

Spiritual psychology comes only from the mutual influence of each other within the group. Although friends exist solely in the corporeal world and everyone is an egoist, they can influence one another.

Question: Have you come across in any sources the mention of red strings?

Answer: No. Even if it is mentioned somewhere, it absolutely would not mean any corporeal manifestation. Neither Baal HaSulam nor Rabash have written anything about it.

In The World Of Complicated Relationships

Laitman_065Question: Why is it that in our world people that are not similar, but are opposite, while complementary to each other, unite?

Answer: The thing is that we are very confused in our world, so it is hard to tell how exactly we unite: in likeliness or not. It depends on which qualities keep us connected with each other.

When I aim to reach the highest spiritual goal, our animal qualities lose their importance to me.

I do not pay attention to the qualities that are opposite of mine in my friend, but treat them as necessary for my internal work, for overcoming various antagonisms and problems between us. I care about the intent toward the main goal.

Holidays From The Perspective Of Kabbalah

laitman_572.02Question: What does a holiday mean from the perspective of Kabbalah?

Answer: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, there are various levels of the Light that come down upon us. Their intensity determines a special state called a holiday.

“Holiday” in Hebrew is called “Hag” from the word “Mehuga” (arrow), which constantly turns, repeating its circles. In other words, a holiday is something that repeats from year to year. However, it repeats in such a way that at that time a certain Light comes down and brings everyone under it into a special state.

Thus, in the spiritual world, you may exist in the state of “New Year” while I am in the state of “Pesach” (Passover). In addition, one does not interfere with the other. For you, it is one state; for me, it is a different one. Everyone has his own time and his own levels.
