My Thoughts On Twitter 6/4/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

From a global perspective, society is only beginning to scratch the surface of our true nature and there is nothing to be ashamed of because we were all designed the same way. Full article>> #starbucks #roseanne

The upper world is called “opposite”:
There, the war we fight is not against each other, but against ourselves…
We feel others instead of ourselves…
#Motivation #Sunday #Wisdom

Sophisticated modern science studies elementary particles, but can’t discover how life is born out of their unity. Scientific research has reached a dead-end. Discoveries will occur from spiritual roots. Scientific language and approach will change.

Since our world is built upon the will to enjoy, we can attain it only from the opposite world, by revealing phenomena in the will to bestow. We will then reveal what happens in this world. Thus, we can’t even attain our world without the upper one!

After being created, I can advance on my own through the environment. I need an environment because I can draw the “light that reforms” only to it. The light influences and changes me. I can change my state only in the group.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

There are many phenomena in our world that we can’t reveal.
There’s a boundary to our possibilities of revealing the world.
Real revelation of our world happens by attaining the upper world, by projecting upper phenomena to our world, as a result.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

I can’t feel, know or make decisions on my own—everything is determined by the upper light’s (bestowal) influence on my desires (to receive). I am the result of desire and light, and am therefore called creation. I am the way the light made me, and makes me at every moment.

On the earthly degree (ego, reason), I use the will to enjoy for my benefit (or so it seems to me!). If I use the desire to serve others/the Creator, that’s the spiritual degree. I build the upper world, and then, upon the difference between them, I reveal spiritual phenomena.

We start with individual work, but then we understand that it’s impossible to attain alone—we need the group. In unity, I build the next degree of bestowal. I check: how much am I able to think about them and about the Creator? From love of creatures to love of the Creator.

What Is Our “I”?

laitman_537Question: What is a person’s “I” that is aware of his or her existence?

Answer: It’s just a little egoism. By changing it, we will feel not only the property of reception in it, but also the property of bestowal. In the egoism corrected to bestow, we begin to sense what really exists outside of us.

Now we feel and analyze only what enters into our senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. If we had additional sense organs, we would feel much more, not as it enters and adapts in us, but as it exists outside of us, objectively. This is called spiritual perception.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 12/17/17

laitman_623Question: If one day goes by without the wisdom of Kabbalah, I feel miserable. Why does Kabbalah have an influence on me like a drug that provides happiness?

Answer: This is because otherwise you would not be connected to a system that can fulfill you.

Question: If the world is perfect, and I am intentionally faulty, then quarrels and confrontations are unavoidable. So how do I balance the good with the bad within me like “plus” and “minus”?

Answer: In any case you should not condemn the good or the bad or elevate this or that, rather only try to achieve their mutual connection, adhesion, and completion. Perfection is found between us, in the middle line.

Question: In our world, are people who are altruistic egoists happier than people who are just egoists?

Answer: Egoistic altruists are still less limited. But to be an altruist in our world, one must be born like this or enter a society like that where they “brainwash” you, and then you will be able to become an altruist and enjoy it. But this is already a particular kind of persuasion, and not a person’s inner inspiration.

Question: What does it mean to acquire the characteristic of bestowal? Explain it regarding feelings as much as possible.

Answer: Ask a mother who is concerned about her baby how she is happy to give him something, to do something for him. See how she takes care of him, follows him, and constantly wants to touch him, to improve something. This is the beastly characteristic of bestowal that shows us that it is possible on the physical level. It is partial and temporary, but it is possible.

Question: What are your wishes for students?

Answer: You have to rush to and resolve everything in the middle line: issues at home, topics in the group, and even in the kitchen, at work, in your attitude to life, and most importantly—the relations between us. Do everything in the middle line—there is no bad and there is no good—there is only everything for the benefit of spiritual progress.

New Life 1001 – New Life For The Nation Of Israel

New Life 1001 – New Life For The Nation Of Israel
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Life teaches us that the nation of Israel is unique. Anti-Semitism is returning and is obligating Israelis to do some soul-searching. We need to search for the root causes of domestic division and external hatred. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, we must recognize our egoistic nature and draw special forces from nature that will connect us according to the principles “Love your friend as yourself” and “Love covers all transgressions.” We must lead the world by teaching this method of love through the power of the Creator.
