7. Kabbalah’s method is built upon a balance of 2 forces: materialism (our feelings) & idealism (faith in something we can’t attain)

Just like when building a house, if the walls don’t have any empty spaces, we won’t be able to enter it. The entrance is in a place of deficiency.

6. Spiritual Kli:
Malchut has nothing, but everything is built for it,
– the first 9 Sefirot are full of light.
We must unite these two degrees.

We include both degrees:
– seeing a #life full of flaws,
– building ourselves up to feel a perfect world.
#Spiritualworld_ML

5. Seeing all the people #suffering, I must say that “there are eyes but they do not see”, meaning that I do not see the truth. I must consider myself perfect, existing in a world fully suffused by upper light.
#Reality_ML #wisdom

4. There are two layers of perception of #reality:
-man feels deficient since he has nothing of the spiritual world, which he desires.
-nevertheless, he must imagine that he is in the spiritual, infinite #world, governed by one upper force.
#Reality_ML #imagination

3. Striving for faith above reason, we imagine an eternal and perfect #world, in which we exist. Through these efforts we draw the light that reforms, and actually start to feel that the whole world is non-material!
#Reality_ML #kabbalah

2. There are no problems in the material world – we simply live it.
But we build the spiritual #world above rational #perception – by way of faith above reason.
Faith is reflected from #knowledge, rises above it and is opposite to it.
#QuoteOfTheWeek

1.Spiritual sensation is built above the material one. It has no words or characteristics, isn’t perceived by our senses and constantly disappears from them. My #world is my sensations.
Man must build and exist on 2 degrees since there can’t be one without the other.
#Reality_ML

Now in #Amsterdam: a spontaneous meeting with the #Dutch group—are preparing together for a conference in Europe to be held at the end of June. Glad to have the opportunity to meet physically with my dear students. See you tomorrow evening in Israel! #kabbalah

In the body, every part takes cares of all the rest—this is called love.
For us, love is pleasure from fulfilling ourselves.

The Work In Between

Laitman_200.01All the main work is not at the conventions but in between them. And every day can be like a convention, like a big ascent or descent—everything accumulates together.

Every day has to be like a new beginning, and even several times a day. We do not have to wait until the previous degree disappears from our feelings. Although, in any case, it is registered for eternity as already corrected by us because we have advanced few steps forward and have achieved a new connection in both quantity and quality. But then this state disappears so that we continue our work further.

The concealment can be caused by two reasons: either we simply allowed the achieved state to disappear or we started to engage in a new kind of connection, in new goals, and therefore the previous degree has already exhausted itself.1

The upcoming convention in Italy is special in a sense that it will bring together many different groups that belong to the united European group. This is the real shattered Babylon that we need to unite.

Europe is the center of all modern civilization, the place that has greatly influenced the history of humanity. Therefore, we must try to unite above all the differences this whole Babylon, which has as if moved from
Mesopotamia to Europe.

With today’s European nations and modern conditions, an entirely new kind of work is required in both quality and quantity. We need to overcome such difficulties as different languages and cultures. Europe is like a miniature world.2

No matter what state we are in, either greatness or smallness, our concern should be only to never leave our root. There is no need to try to keep the same type of connection and even the same intensity—let them change and disappear. The most important thing is to keep the connection itself, hold on to the same Creator, to the same principle: “There is none else besides Him.” It is in relation to Him that we want to renew our unity by reaching a new state, a new deficiency.3

Why Isn’t The Creator An Egoist?

laitman_285.03Question: Is the Creator developing and changing?

Answer: The Creator is not changing. We are the ones who are changing relative to Him and we can ascribe these changes to Him. But in fact, there are no changes in Him. It is an absolutely pure and unchanging upper Light.

We can compare this to the sun we are looking at alternately with and without sunglasses, but the Light does not change when you do this.

Question: Why isn’t the Creator an egoist?

Answer: It is because He is perfect. It is a force that consists of the property of bestowal and love because it is its nature. Since it does not have a desire to receive or enjoy at the expense of someone or something, it cannot be negative.

New Life #991 – The Circle Of Life, Part 2

New Life #991 – The Circle Of Life, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

The circle of life exists so that we will transcend this life for a spiritual, complete, and eternal life in a higher dimension. Correction of the general soul requires an emotional connection between a person and the generations that preceded him. One goes from love of people to love of the Creator. Ultimately, all of us need to be connected as one person with one heart. Then, power and information about our entire existence and a new life on a higher level will be discovered.
