High above, Batya,
Daughter of Pharaoh and of the Creator,
Wraps everyone in a blanket of light.
(#Zohar. Lech-lecha, 196)
The wisdom of Kabbalah is the Creator’s #revelation by His paths, in all categories that are and will be revealed in the worlds, in all forms that can be revealed in the worlds, till the end of all generations.
(Baal HaSulam, “The #Wisdom of #Kabbalah and Its Essence”)
Everything was prepared in advance, and every #Soul already exists in all its light, goodness and #eternity.
(Baal HaSulam, “Letter 25”)
Every person has to attain the root of his soul.
(Baal HaSulam, “The Acting Mind”)
One thought created all #reality, upper and lower, all the way to the final correction. This one thought acts in everything, is the essence of all actions, determines the goal, and is the essence of all efforts, their whole perfection and expected reward.
Baal HaSulam, TES (The Study of the Ten Sefirot), Part 1
The first spiritual act, annulment of self (egoism, one’s I), is necessary so the Creator can perform anything on you with your consent (Mesirut Nefesh) in faith above reason (bestowal, Li Shma). After that, self-annulment becomes more and more active.
One who receives fulfillment from the Creator ascends in these fulfillments. One who merits to feel that the #Creator also delights with him, preparing him to receive the upper influences, is called a #Kabbalist.
(Baal HaSulam, “Letter 46”)
Crossing to the common group screen is called crossing Machsom, the boundary with the upper world. We act together in our group aspiration, covered by a common intention (screen, blanket) from us to the Creator. This is crossing the Machsom.
The peculiarity of #Kabbalah is that it is able to connect opposing properties ( #opinions, desires, goals), people (parties, nations) into one.
It is my hope that we will use our ambitious energy to enliven our connection and spread it to the world sooner rather than later, instead of waiting for turmoil and #suffering to goad us from the other end of the spectrum. #Iran #Jerusalem #Israel
The more we can inspire relations of care, #kindness and #love to each other above our divisive inclinations, the more we will pave the path for a key attitude shift to sweep over #humanity.
While time is still tilted in our favor, we should concern ourselves with initiating our connection through positive incentives. The #world is waiting for us to carry out our fateful mission: to infuse it with positive connection. #Israel
However, such temporary connection has no lasting strength. That is, the moment the external threat goes away, we continue business-as-usual, and all our internal disputes again take center stage. From my article:
#Israel Currently Working Against its Divine Mission
In periods when such tensions escalate to all-out #war, the climax of fear momentarily connects us. We stop caring about our internal disputes and all focus on protecting ourselves from the external threat.
Q: If my desires reach a higher order, to bestow and love, will I see spiritual phenomena?
A: You’ll even feel the system of #forces managing our world and every person, you’ll see the result of its influences and will interact with them to practically determine the #future.
The Creator gradually raises us, creating problems and revealing that only He can solve them. In this way He attaches us, egoism, to Him. There’s nowhere to run, and that’s great! It’s wonderful to feel that all your development is in Him, in acquiring the quality of bestowal.
The Creator will force #Jews to think about the reason for others’ hatred of them and what #Kabbalah says about it!
#UNHRC: Israel ‘ignores international law again and again’
The #UN will soon pass a resolution to revoke the state of #Israel, with most countries’ support.
#Kabbalah is simple, but it’s difficult to master since you have to act against yourself, for the good of others and the Creator.
#Spiritualwork_ML is managing the world/desire, aiming it at the benefit of the group/Creator. This is the sole influence on the world/Creator. Governance is only through desire.
The #Germans wanted to be courteous hosts
But the guests ended up being the hosts—
Showing hosts the door…
