New Life 988 – The New Rationality, Part 1

New Life 988 – The New Rationality, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

All creatures are rational except for humans. Animals act according to instincts and never make mistakes. Humans lack balance between intellect and emotion and their power of imagination leads to even more confusion. Despite having the capacity to supply everyone with nourishment, clothing, and health, we struggle with one another and sacrifice our lives for abstract ideas. We need to create a new approach to reality based on the desire to give. This new rationale will help us to discover that reality is one whole connected soul system and everyone will find their place within it.

My Thoughts On Twitter 5/11/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter
2018 Italy Convention Website

Continuing the ascent means attaining greater greatness of the Creator above our benefit, giving Him pleasure without waiting for the next congress.

The 2018 USA Congress was a success, the Creator’s greatness was revealed above personal benefit, from me to the group and from the group to the Creator.

Don’t relax until you permanently feel love and awe as you stand before the Creator—until this state becomes natural. Don’t let anything in this world—not pleasures nor fears, extinguish this sensation. And constantly take care not to fall from this sensation.

If we don’t reveal problems for correction, the Creator reveals day-to-day problems, pushing us to advance.
Therefore, even when in spiritual ascent, ask for even greater closeness with the Creator, look for an opportunity for correction, request ascent and greater closeness.”

Since spiritual work lies in attaining the intention of bestowal by overcoming our natural will to receive, it is attained by reducing the duration of descents in between the ascents.

On the spiritual path, what counts is not the habitual work and regular efforts, but efforts about the habitual. Precisely they come together to produce new understanding and revelation of the upper light, the Creator inside them.

In spiritual states, nothing disappears, but it’s replaced for us to correct new obstacles
Don’t wait for a descent, but look for what you can add to the Creator’s greatness, and rise.
Precisely while in ascent, develop fear of separation, look for a new ascent and ask the Creator!

One HaVaYaH

laitman_269The Creator created one HaVaYaH system and then He broke it in order to give the created beings an opportunity to come closer to Him, and it was divided into many individual systems. After all, in order to attain the essence of the Creator, His qualities, character, behavior, bestowal, and His attitude to us, we must gradually reveal Him from the easier things to more and more complex ones.

The first HaVaYaH is just a point and then it grows: Ibur, Yenika, and Mochin. This is the end of the realization of the first HaVaYaH, and then the second one starts, which means that the first HaVaYaH is doubled so that we could feel the Creator better. There is already a need for mutual connection between the Creator and the created being: the whole system begins to grow from the drop of semen.

The Creator always conceals Himself and burdens our heart, and we must overcome this and discover that the Creator is behind everything. Each time those individual HaVaYaH systems (tens) connect more and more and gather into one single HaVaYaH.

The universe was born from a single spark in the Big Bang, and expanded from there in every direction. Now, pieces of this HaVaYaH return from all these directions and re-connect together. In fact, this separation exists only in relation to us, and we learn how to connect the infinite number of parts into one principle, “There is none else besides Him.”

We see that the more our world advances, the more all its systems, manufacturing, and sciences become connected. The wisdom of Kabbalah clearly reveals all the evidence that nothing else exists other than one HaVaYaH.

It is as if in this world we abstract from matter and its behavior at different levels that are studied by physics, chemistry, biology, zoology and consider only the laws themselves, then we have mathematics that describe formulas of relations between all parts, all desires.

No matter at what level these parts connect—at the inanimate, vegetative, animate, or even the speaking level, in the mind and in the heart—the same formulas operate everywhere. And therefore, after many searches we begin to see how it all gathers into one ten.

We need to think about it even now and try to treat the entire creation as one ten. For the Creator there is no difference between far and near—for Him everyone is equal and all connect into one whole. We also need to try and relate to the created being in the same way, to become more sensitive to the friends who are far, who are not in the same room, country, or continent.

They are all included in the vessel of the soul. For me all the points in the heart that the Creator chose and pulls to Himself are inseparable from myself like my own soul, or even more important. In this way all will unite into one ten. 1

The correction happens from light to heavy, therefore the lightest desires are selected first: 2,000 years + 2,000 years + 2,000 years (HBD – HGT – NHY). The first generations relatively easily attained the Torah and corrections because they were less egoistic and did not require many years of hard work for this.

However, it is we, the most egoistic ones who reveal the greatest Light, although it manifests in their light desires. Then all this gets rounded into one ten, but for now we do the work and are in the darkness, and the Light is manifested in the Kelim (vessels) of the forefathers.

We are called “the last generation” for a good reason. We indeed belong to the very last desires, coarsest and heaviest desires included in correction. However, we need to be proud that we were given an opportunity to draw the greatest Light to the Kelim of the forefathers.

We need to understand that we are doing a great job, even though it seems minuscule to us, and through this we draw the great Light, which is absolutely invisible to us, because it is revealed in the Kelim above us. Where can we get motivation for the work if we do not have connection with the degree of forefathers where the Light is revealed through our efforts?

This is a problem, and therefore, we just need to continue “as an ox to the burden and as a donkey to the load” until everything connects into one ten, at least approximately, so that illumination from the upper degree will reach our lowest ten. This doesn’t happen all at once. There are ten Sefirot of the direct Light, ten Sefirot of the reflected Light, and in each Sefira there are ten Sefirot horizontally, and so on.

It will take a very long time until all these Sefirot spread from above downward and through them, corrected before us, the weakest Light of Nefesh will flow to us. It was much easier to reach spirituality in their time. Therefore they are called fathers, and we are called sons, the last generation. 2

The Tragedy in the Arava Desert

Everyone should try to see and feel that this loss happened in your own family, to your child. Then we will understand how far we are from being connected. After all, when we found out about the tragedy we were upset and worried, but we nevertheless went to sleep and had breakfast in the morning as usual. This is not at all the grief that has now befallen the families of the teenagers who lost their lives. But why don’t we feel exactly the same way? We are not connected enough, because, in fact, everyone should feel such grief as if he lost his own child.

All the tragedies in the world happen because the Creator needs to be revealed when the time has come for this, but we do not reveal Him. This is the suffering.3

If I Have A Ten, I Need Nothing Else

laitman_267.02How can I know how many millions of spiritual Partzufim are before me and how many are behind me? It does not matter where I am. Most importantly, I need a ten, which is my spiritual structure. If I come to adhesion with it, then I reach adhesion with the entire scale of creation. I need not worry about connecting the “upper ten” and the “lower ten” and so on through the entire chain. In each element of the spiritual reality, there is infinity in its full form.

The spiritual world is arranged such that only quality and not quantity matters in it. If I fully connect my Malchut with the first nine Sefirot, which for me is my group, then I achieve adhesion, my final correction, and at the same time, the general end of correction.

“There is no absence in spirituality”—in it, “the general and particular are equal.” We do not feel this, for us they are just beautiful words. But it is necessary to understand that if I have a ten, I need nothing else. I can finish all the work for my complete correction in it.1

Understanding The Nature Of Women

627.2Question: Why do women try to prove their independence from men? What do they need it for?

Answer: Women feel their dependence on men; so, they need to prove that they are independent. Men should take this into consideration, understand the feminine nature, and give in to it.

It is very important for women to feel support, a shoulder to lean on. Women need a home, a family, and children, much greater needs than men.

Therefore, it is important to be considerate of these desires given to her by nature, which she must fulfill. Otherwise, she will constantly feel herself pressured, unfulfilled, unrealized, unsure. Men should provide this to women.
