My Thoughts On Twitter 5/9/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

The world Kli attained convergence at the 2018 USA Convention.
Attaining the next unification doesn’t require a disconnect.
Striving for greater unity is enough.
The European groups’ remoteness is a place of work to unite.
The result will be a Kli for the Creator’s revelation!

We are presented with a unique opportunity
to unite all together around the European groups
at the forthcoming Italy 2018 Convention
in conditions specially staged by the Creator.
Please send suggestions to congress management
on lesson prep and topics, songs and teaching mode.
From Twitter, 5/9/18

A Gift From Above

laitman_549.02Question: Can I say that my terrible disappointment in ordinary life is a gift to help me come to the truth of the upper world?

Answer: Definitely! It is really a gift. After all, so many people are still chasing satisfaction in material goals.

At the same time, Kabbalists in no way say that a person should become a hermit, limit himself, starve, and so on. On the contrary, enjoy life! Give the body what it wants. The main thing is that it does not interfere with you, does not take too much time and effort, and gives you the opportunity to study the higher nature.

Where Your Thoughts Are…

Laitman_001.01Remark: It is said that a person is where his thoughts are.

Answer: It is quite natural because a place is a person’s thought—his mind, his desire.

In Kabbalah, there is no physical place in which, as it seems to us, we exist today. This is an absolute illusion!

Question: Then what is “me”?

Answer: It is also an illusion. It is a collection of short waves that form the illusion of your body, your mind. It is nothing more than that.

Today, Kabbalists are not the only ones who discuss this. Scientists also do. In the past, Kabbalists could be blamed for heresy and ignorance, which is why Kabbalists lived in concealment.

If we open Kabbalistic sources written 2,000 to 3,000 years ago, we discover writings stating that our world is an absolute illusion. There is nothing in our world, not even elementary particles, only waves, and everything we see around us is represented to us in our inner sensations. We study this in the topic of perception of reality.

A person who reveals the spiritual world begins to attain that this is all within him, inside his consciousness, because there is nothing else but consciousness. All the pictures allegedly existing around us in reality are drawn for us in our minds.

New Life #978 – Good Deeds

New Life #978 – Good Deeds
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

What is a good deed and how does it affect the giver and the recipient, what is the connection between health and good deeds, and how does a good relationship affect the rest of the world? The highest development is to benefit others in order to connect to a higher power, to God, to the absolute good. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, up to 10% of the population naturally enjoys giving. This wisdom teaches how to “love your neighbor as yourself” so that we can attain higher level forces. Relating positively to each other develops our soul since giving has the force of life. God is nature, a system that connects all the details of reality with the power of giving and love.
