My Thoughts On Twitter 5/5/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Forget everything, and start from scratch!
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

Strive to have a new understanding of the spiritual path with each new day.
Herein lies your advancement, as if you begin anew the understanding of the #Torah and the Creator, the path of your development and its #purpose. May your transformation happen several times a day.

To kill the Egyptian in you
Is to accept descents as ascents
And thereby delight the Creator.
#Wisdom #TuesdayThoughts

The North American #congress of May 2018 is over. It was successful, strong, unifying—the result of preparation and a testament to the advancement of the global Bnei Baruch group. We’ve begun to feel as one whole.
Our task now is to unite #Europe at the Italy 2018 Congress!

Does a Kabbalist feel like an egoist?
A Kabbalist understands that he’s got a big ego, but it was given to him for correction. He doesn’t allow his ego to overtake and control him. The ego is awakened in me so that I would control it!

Why Do Newborns Cry So Much?

Laitman_509Question: Why do newborns cry so much?

Answer: They have very small minds. They feel only their feelings and cannot balance them with reason. That is why they are either happy or they cry.

Question: Does this phenomenon have a spiritual root?

Answer: This is a very small Kli (vessel), which lacks reasoning ability. That is why a newborn displays what it feels.

Remark: Your teacher Rabash used to say that when a child cries, no one pays attention, but when an adult cries, then we understand that there is some kind of prayer there.

My Comment: Among adults there are people with different sensitivities. That is why their tears are not related to spirituality. Kabbalists are prone to serious expressions of emotion, but these, as a rule, are rarely seen externally.

Does Punishment Exist In Kabbalah?

laitman_547.05Question: Does punishment exist in Kabbalah?

Answer: In Kabbalah, unlike in our world, all problems have to be solved in the middle line. The purulent tumor has to be opened and treated until it becomes a normal and healthy organism.

Question: But in our world we still have courts, prisons, etc.?

Answer: They do not solve anything. We see how prison does not help at all. People are isolated from society. What is the use? It is not a correction. A prison should be a system of a person’s correction. It should not work in the form of punishment.

Remark: Baal HaSulam writes that punishment is a reproach from society.

My Comment: Yes, but only if the society is prepared to treat a transgressor in a way that he would feel as an outcast. Then it will indeed become his correction.

How To Resolve Conflicts In The Family

 Laitman_095Question: You say that happiness means resolution of conflicts. How can families solve them in order to avoid arguments?

Answer: This is a very interesting system: when together with your spouse you reveal some flaws, not in each other but in your relationship, and you come together to solve them.

It is always “between us” and “we are together”: in both negative and positive states. First, we stick together, and then we begin to reveal how to make the connection between us even more effective. We work on this by finding out what we lack for even greater connection.

Such actions must be done constantly because in this way we will grow spiritually. Spiritually! It is not about the contact of bodies or hearts.

Question: Let us assume that I have a conflict in my family. What should I do?

Answer: First of all, hug your spouse tightly and reach some kind of contact, mutual understanding. When you achieve this, initiate the conflict together to gain even greater mutual understanding.

That is, first one needs to build the contact, and then slowly initiate the conflict situations so that they contribute to even greater contact.

Question: When is the moment of real happiness?

Answer: When you work on this. If you work on this together, both in good and bad, you will have a feeling of constant happiness. The process itself brings pleasure.

New Life #33 – Transcendence And Fulfilling Your Partner

New Life #33 – Transcendence And Fulfilling Your Partner
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz


Couples need to learn how to apply the principle, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” in their relationships. This can only be done with the help of a supportive environment in which all the couples want to fight against the human ego. In workshops, we can learn to transcend criticism by relating to our partners as though they were already perfected. We can learn to fill all the deficiencies between us with love and become one body in truth.
