Precisely because the nation of Israel lacks national love, natural to every nation, it has been commanded to attain love in the form of “Love your neighbor as yourself” through awareness of the common goal, the Creator, rather than by receiving it from common ancestry
Baal HaSulam: “It’s shameful to admit that in exile we’ve lost the most important quality: our national self-awareness, the sensation that bonds every nation. The bonds of love, natural for all nations, have left our hearts.”
We must restore these connections!
… the wisdom of #Kabbalah—and we are becoming ripe to start using it to realize our true role in the world: to achieve “love your friend as yourself” and “each shall help his friend” in order to become “a light unto nations.”
I’m very happy that on Israel’s 70 years of #independence, we’ve been given a golden opportunity to proudly carry the wisdom of truth and publicize it. After 2,000 years of ups and downs, light and darkness, glory and exile, the veil has been lifted over the wisdom of Israel …
All that remains is to rekindle the national love that is dwindling, to revive the national essence that has been inactive for 2,000 years, to reawaken ourselves to unity and illuminate the light that humanity subconsciously expects from us.
Our work: with our intentions, to create the Creator’s image “to bestow” out of desires “to receive.” As we build the Creator, we attain Him. By correcting the entire will to receive with the intention of bestowal, we reveal that there really is “None else besides Him.”
Before the Ari (16 C), it was forbidden to spread Kabbalah since egoism, AHAP, would develop faster than bestowal, G”E in the world. But since the Ari, bestowing forces, G”E have finished developing and Kabbalah must be disseminated, including among the nations, to correct the #world.
Israel’s Independence Day—the Day of Interdependence.
Only in a state of total interdependence, under the influence of the environment, do we acquire independence from each other, from our ego, our I—and can become one people, fulfilled by the Creator. #Israel #IndependenceDay
#Darkness and #light, descents and ascents, exile and glory, are all characteristic of the people of #Israel, ancient and modern. We have enjoyed states of blossoming unity and brotherly love at the time of the First and Second Temples. @BINAlerts
Human society is marching into a new age where we’ll all know everything about everyone — from the most basic information that any minor computer geek can easily track, to the most supposedly embarrassing deeds we try to hide from neighbors and colleagues.
Ben Gurion, Spiritual Revolution:
History has given us a great moral power.
“Love your neighbor as yourself” is the highest imperative of our people. Israel will merit its name only if its social relationships will be built on these eternal words.
Independence doesn’t mean freedom from everyone. At the basis of creation, there are no independent parts, everything is interconnected. So, freedom and independence are only possible in unconditional, selfless #love, when you feel not yourself, but everyone—in mutual guarantee.
Kabbalists are adding to the celebration of Israel’s 70 years of Statehood an additional reason to celebrate: that in the State of Israel, a major spiritual resurgence is starting to take shape after 2,000 years of spiritual exile. #Israel70 #Israel
The wisdom of Kabbalah, as the foundation and genetic record of the Jewish nation, says that we live in the land of #Israel in order to enter eternity and perfection.
Israel’s Independence Day is not just the country’s birthday, but its rebirth-day.
Laws of corporeal nature: those who don’t observe them are punished.
Laws of spiritual nature (relating to man’s equivalence to the Creator):
operate according to man’s development as a tiered judicial system, with a specific law on each degree.
Instead of climbing the degrees of bestowal and love for others, and passing light to the nations of the world, since as far back as the 1st Temple the nation of Israel has been imbued with corporeal desires of the nations. Only a few Kabbalists remained in each generation,
“Israel’s Independence Day—the Day of Interdependence.
Only in a state of total interdependence, under the influence of the environment, do we acquire independence from each other, from our ego, our I—and can become one people, fulfilled by the Creator. #Israel #IndependenceDay”
Our purpose is to lead by example in unity and solidarity, inspiring the nations to build correct social relationships. Then, instead of accusations, they will cherish us and will want to learn the method of unity from us. #Kabbalah #Israel #IndependenceDay #YomHaatzmaut
We cannot exist independently of each other; hence, independence can only be in the sensation of others as yourself.
I must feel that the people of #Israel, all mankind, the whole universe—all of that is me. And that is only possible with the power of love.
By not realizing the Creator’s revelation to the world, the Jews are dooming the nations to suffer, since the latter can’t do it on their own. The nations suffer because Isra-El does not fulfill the Creator’s revelation to the world. This is the cause of anti-Semitism in the world
If the desire to reveal the Creator is there but we don’t move toward its realization, we unknowingly evoke great disasters in the world to alternatively push us toward the need to reveal the Creator. So, by refusing to reveal the Creator, we evoke all the troubles in the world.
