My Thoughts On Twitter 6/11/18

Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong-un may very well grant the American President candidacy for the Nobel Peace Prize. Reaching conciliation with North Korea while destroying its nuclear testing polygon may become Trump’s great achievement.

We must value egoism—the force of resistance to the ten’s unity. We must not and cannot eradicate it, but overcome it by the force of the light, the plea to the Creator.
Only those who recognize the need to unite require the Torah, upper light, leading to unification in HaVaYaH.

The will to receive isn’t egoism, but nature’s force of development.
Egoism is revealed only in the aspiration to unite into a ten.
Then we reveal the force that hinders us.
It can only be corrected by upper light and invoked by the common desire.

In the future, the Creator will open eyes that were not wise so they can gaze upon the upper wisdom and attain that which they did not attain in this world. Happy are those who merited this #wisdom since there is no wisdom, knowledge or adhesion like it.
#Zohar Ve-etchanan

It’s written:”Ponder day and night” and not: understand day and night. If you understood—you understood, and if not -you hold the reward for the study! Although you don’t understand The Book of Zohar, the language evokes the soul’s correction.
Preface, Revelation of Wisdom

When a person starts identifying himself with the Creator, he sees his ego against him and rejoices at its suffering. Ego will turn into dust (From dust you came and to dust you will return). Man is created from this dust. And the pain is neutralized by the Upper Goal.

We are now paving a new path for all mankind.
In Kabbalah, our generation is called “the last”—of those living by egoism’s laws.
In our time, the upper force must be revealed between all people, without differences or limitations.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

The Creator created our egoistic nature such that we won’t be able to unite above it on our own and will have to ask Him for help. When we ask Him together, the Creator unites our desires and and becomes revealed in them.
#Spiritualwork_ML #Kabbalah

The Creator does everything in order to direct you to Him.

Try to see the Creator in everything, FOR and AGAINST connection—and you’ll discover that all problems are only from not recognizing Him as the cause.
When you agree that everything comes from the Creator, you’ll start to feel that you’re connected to Him.

Attain wherefrom is the soul, attain and correct the world. Attain the Creator by peering deeply into the upper world’s secrets.

New #Zohar, Songs of Songs: Man must reveal his Maker’s secrets, how he was created, where he’s from, where he’s going, how to correct himself and then face the Creator’s judgement.

Throw—attain (change the letter order) in the Book of Zohar (Behaalotecha)

Those who attain will shine like the firmament. This is the radiance of The Book of #Zohar in them. They fulfill “Throw every newborn into the river.” The secret of the Torah is a son. A newborn is one who attains. The Yeor river is Ohr, light of Torah.

As you move away from yourself and closer to the Creator, you see your past self standing across, and you fight yourself. Only the point in the heart unites with the Creator; the rest is against it. You identify with the point, and step by step, you unite with the Creator.

What Did Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain Have in Common? linkedin>>

Then, their craving for #meaning and #purpose finds its #fulfillment in connection with the harmony and wholeness of nature.

When human beings tap into their inherent wiring for connection, they reveal that they are parts of a single integrated system, connected to each other and to the natural source of life itself.

People treat them as symbols or idols, and stop looking at them as ordinary human beings with feelings. As a result, they gradually lose a lot of their friendships and human #connections.

When people reach the heights of #fame and #fortune, their lives change dramatically. Their new status and power separate them from the rest of society.
#KateSpade #AnthonyBourdain

From an ordinary person’s point of view, the rich and famous already have everything that the rest of us dream of. But as we focus on what they’ve got, we miss what’s happening inside their minds and hearts. Thus, we overlook what they’re losing. #suicide

Medium: “Kim Trump Summit: Dealmaker Meets Dictator”

The largest portal Medium published my new article “Kim Trump Summit: Dealmaker Meets Dictator

Trump’s interest in meeting Kim Jong-un is obvious: if he becomes the one to denuclearize North Korea, it will be an unprecedented achievement for America, for the world, and for Trump himself, who will be remembered in the history books.

Coming straight from the G7 summit in Canada, Trump will carry on with the same approach: positioning himself for getting the best deal possible. But will it work with the young dictator with whom he mostly traded insults so far? “Within the first minute, I’ll know,” said the businessman turned U.S. president.

President Trump at G7 (Reuters)
At the time of writing these lines, no one knows what will come out of the historical summit. But certainly, Trump intends to get Kim to consider denuclearization in exchange for diplomatic recognition and some economic package. He will aim to put Kim — whose country is desperate for economic relief — in a rational give-and-take mode of behavior.

In fact, Trump probably already has plans for how to get Asian and European countries to help write a check for Mr. Kim.

But it should come as no surprise that Trump will become the first sitting U.S. president to meet with a North Korean leader. It fits his habit of shaking up the status quo and countering the existing global order. Just take look at the photo from the recent G7 summit, which does a good job of capturing the “World vs. Trump” dynamic.

Trump is a relentless business pragmatist in a position to move the world’s leaders into a direct give-and-take relationship. By putting American interests first, his moves are tearing down international agreements between powerful global players. And by doing it in his non-politically correct way, he is bursting ideological bubbles and facades that became the norm in international relations many decades ago.

That being said, Trump doesn’t necessarily understand the epic turning point that human society is now facing, all the more so the unique role he himself plays in it. In truth, most of us can’t conceive of the momentous transformation that the world is now going through.

Every day, human society is becoming more interdependent across the globe. And as this reality becomes more evident, the fallacies of the modern world become evident as well. Thus, we gradually come to recognize that humanity needs a new operating system by which to run its programs and synchronize relationships between people and countries.

But first, we have to reset the current operating system — and Trump is hitting that button.

Lastly, as I have expressed before, when I comment on Trump-related matters, his popularity or lack of thereof is irrelevant to me. I don’t take my cues from mainstream media or what people say, nor do I pick any side in favor or against Trump or anyone else.

Rather, I explain the world through the lens of the wisdom of Kabbalah, which sheds light on the fundamental laws of nature that shape the global and collective development of humanity.

How Can Emotions Be Reconciled With Reason?

laitman_543.01Question from Facebook: How can we reconcile emotions with reason because our emotions arise as responses to life events that are far from the rational way the world is run?

Answer: Our emotions have nothing to do with mind. They manifest because they “jump out” of desire. And desire is our innate nature.

Reason is an acquired additional system designed to collect emotions, sort them out, compare, curb, etc. But generally, reason is weak before emotions; before desires, it is secondary.

Question: Is it possible to curb emotions?

Answer: There is no point. You have to reach a state where your emotions are balanced. After all, negative emotions can be balanced with positive ones and then you can feel comfortable with them, because both negative and positive emotions will work together toward a lofty goal.

And you know that you need all of it. You are not fighting your nature or the people around you. On the contrary, you enter a state when you are in harmony with each other. One person’s plus is compensated by the another’s minus. We are created in such a way that if all of us would correctly connect with each other, we would form an ideal system, and all our pluses and minuses would fit together perfectly.

Question: So the pluses and minuses are scattered around the world in order to connect?

Answer: That’s the problem. We have no other choice. We try to do something among each other, we get discouraged seeing that nothing helps, and eventually we die.

But in fact, we need to see that we cannot do anything by ourselves and must ask the Creator to help us. Then He will shine upon us with the upper Light, under the influence of which we will quickly assemble into the correct mosaic and complete each other.

Then we will have the perfect combination of everyone with each other. All negative and positive emotions will be supplemented, every person will be necessary for another. That is how we will reach perfection.

New Life 987 – Spiritual Art, Part 2

New Life 987 – Spiritual Art, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, spiritual art is inspired by Reshimo de Hitlabshut (the Reshimo of clothing/dressing) or the level of reality that has not yet been shaped in form. A spiritual artist annuls himself in order to reach a higher level of perception and creation. He tries to be like the Creator by expressing love and giving to others. Spiritual art teaches people how to connect with each other and discover the power of love.
