My Thoughts On Twitter 6/18/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

We can easily blame individuals for their abusive actions, and should prevent them from continuing. But these are merely results that float above the surface. The monster that awakens is a social disease that has been incubating for decades and is erupting increasingly in our time.

Evidently, we cannot see our own fault in the moment of truth. The stony heart blinds us and removes the sense of guilt, causing us to lose our senses without being aware of it.

These horrifying incidents reveal the cold, stony heart that beats within the human being. When the #ego overpowers us, it floods us with such a high degree of agitation and fury that conquers all, driving us to harm anyone in our way, even a helpless little toddler. #daycare

What is causing those we hire to take care of our #children to behave in such a monstrous way? And how can we constrain this phenomenon when we don’t have control over what happens inside #daycare centers?

When the economic system can’t forecast, it enters a #crisis, dragging along all other systems that society created. The crisis is global, involving all systems social, economic, political, etc. Everything has outlived itself, and Trump is merely an engine driven from above.

When our heart finally aspires to unity in the group, we start to feel that “love for the neighbor,” which Kabbalists write about, is not morals, but a law of nature, the law of all creation.

During an attack on unity in the group, we develop a common language with the Creator.The main part is to start understanding Him, perceiving any occurrence as His invitation to turn to Him.The Creator is being revealed in everything taking place, and I must see Him in everything

Unity can be attained only by a group attack! That’s how we obligate the Creator to implement the unity.
Like a sports coach, the Creator sets ups obstacles to unity, which we must overcome, like athletes, in order to gather the soul and reveal Him in it

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 12/31/17, Part 1

laitman_547.04Question: Does the soul have volume?

Answer: The volume of the soul is measured by the degree of its bestowal above egoism. If a person’s egoism is great and he has the ability to transcend it and bestow through its help, it is valued as a great soul.

Question: How much time is required to ascend the spiritual levels if we are regularly studying the wisdom of Kabbalah? Is there an average or is it all individual?

Answer: There is no such measure. It is an individual ascent that depends solely on your efforts.

Question: Why is it that on one hand I know that the Creator exists and is hiding Himself from me even though I do not feel that, and on the other hand, I feel what happens to me directly and do not connect it with the Creator?

Answer: The Creator does not hide from you, rather it is you who are hiding Him. Everything that happens to you is done by the Creator.

Question: Where does the “self” come from? What is the reason for its creation?

Answer: The “self” is simply an egoistic desire, a feeling of self that is revealed through the four phases of the Ohr Yashar (Direct Light).

Question: Is it possible to develop and improve on one’s own?

Answer: No. If you are alone, you have no connection with the Creator.

Question: If the world exists only within me, do all of the sciences. including the wisdom of Kabbalah. also exist only within me?

Answer: Correct.

Question: I read that the Creator suffers much more than we do because He is forced to move us through suffering. How should I understand this?

Answer: Indeed, our sufferings are felt more in the Creator than in us because He is the totality of nature, while we are only a small part of Him.

Faith In The Spiritual And In The Material

laitman_567.04Question: Is there a correct method of working with doubts in Kabbalah?

Answer: There can be no doubts in Kabbalah. Rising above them, we come to the spiritual quality of bestowal, the quality of faith, and there is no room for doubt in it because there we reveal the Creator, the upper Light.

Faith in the spiritual is the feeling of the Creator. And the spiritual quality of faith is the complete opposite of the material where you close your eyes and imagine that this is so.

In Kabbalah, on the contrary, you open your eyes and begin to see.

“Man” And “Woman” In Kabbalistic Terms

laitman_543.02Question: Can the Creator be revealed between a man and a woman—two opposite qualities?

Answer: There are no men and women in Kabbalah. In Kabbalah, each of us has both a male and a female root.

Question: What are “man” and “woman” from the Kabbalah point of view?

Answer: A man symbolizes the quality of bestowal without any reference to gender, and a woman symbolizes the quality of reception without any reference to gender.

Any two objects, the created being and the Creator, or different parts within the created being, can always be compared as male and female components. That is, each object can be a male part with respect to one thing and a female part with respect to another one.

Everything is determined only by the action because any object is a desire to enjoy. To the extent that the desire manifests itself in reception or bestowal, it is called a male or a female part. From the spiritual point of view, at one time I can be a woman and at another time I can be a man.

Question: However, in this world someone is born as a man and someone as a woman. Why does this happen?

Answer: It is because based on the upper roots, the same distribution occurs on the animate level. But these gender differences mean almost nothing. We are entering the era of complete spiritual equality. Women will express their spiritual aspirations exactly in the same way as men do.

New Life #41 – The Reason To Marry: To Love By Fulfilling The Desires Of Others

New Life #41 – The Reason To Marry: To Love By Fulfilling The Desires Of Others
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

True love enables a person to be connected to eternity. By exiting ourselves, making concessions to one another, and dressing in our partner’s desires and thoughts, we become one body again just like Adam and Eve. We see an opposite world, meaning a world that exists above our egos. This is a new world where we cannot be hurt. If we define couple relationships as a lab for self-development as human beings, as a springboard to a new life, then we have a good reason to connect.
