Humanity is gradually erasing its boundaries, becoming a melting pot that will need to learn how to share and respect common values by developing a sense of a common destiny. #MigrantCrisis
Read my article @newsmax

We have a very small point, a spark that comes from a higher level than our animal existence. Due to this point awakening in us, we ask the questions: “What is the meaning of life?” and “What do we live for?”
@Jerusalem_Post

… and won’t close its gates to immigrants and foreigners.”
#MigrantChildren

As Yehuda Ashlag, one of the great Jewish sages of the 20th century, wrote in his book The Writings of the Last Generation, “The whole world is one family … and every country is obligated to ensure that it won’t detain citizens who come to another country …

There is still a long road ahead. A country should protect its frontiers, but humanity will continue developing to a state of one global family without borders. #ImmigrantChildren

…. the needs of our fellow man, and brings us to a realization that we depend on each other to not only succeed, but to survive.

This is not only relevant for #immigrants. As the world evolves, human society the world over will have to engage in a new process of learning and transformation, one that expands our perception of the world,

This situation is not limited to America. The United Nations Refugee Agency (#UNRA) reported this week that the total number of displaced people worldwide rose to a record 68.5 million last year. #ImmigrantChildren

No leader or organization today seems to know how to successfully handle immigrant integration into their respective countries and societies, because there is no clear understanding of what has led to such a large-scale displacement.
#Immigration

Those applying for a permanent status would need to enroll in absorption sessions to get deeply acquainted with the American society, the country’s history, social norms, culture, language and its laws.

A solid #ImmigrationReform that deters more people from breaking the law and encourages others to immigrate legally should start with an #educational plan.
#ImmigrationCrisis

Since interconnection between nations is growing, we need a global approach to the educational process to prepare our hearts for integral life all over the world. The aim of humanity is to live as one family, with no boundaries.

From time to time, voices against #Kabbalah are heard.
But Kabbalah doesn’t impose itself on them.
If those who want to study it do so, what business is it of those who don’t want it?
This is obviously egoism—the desire to rule over another’s fate!
The desire for power!
#Ego

After the breaking it’s impossible to unite with one another.
We must attain mutual inclusion 10 X 10, all 10 Sefirot in 10 secondary Sefirot and etc. In this form it’s possible to achieve correction where, with our limited forces, we attain infinite capacity.
#Spiritualwork_ML

The US has withdrawn from the #UN Human Rights Council. The reason isn’t criticism of Israel, but the UNHRC’s aim of dictating decisions by “dictatorship” countries to other countries. People are about to recognize the evil of man’s nature and then correct it through upbringing.

The USA #immigration policy, and then that of the whole world, should develop, besides the regular curriculum studying one’s country and society, training in the method of uniting people. This is part of the teaching of Kabbalah.
#ImmigrantChildren #Trump #separatingfamilies

Most important is mutual inclusion: to eliminate distances and connect to one goal that’s common to all, above each one’s opinion—above reason. This mutual inclusion leads to 620-fold multiplication, since it is correction of the breakage.

The Higher Meaning Of Existence

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Isn’t trying to be kind to others and changing the world just plain ethical or moral guidelines? Why do we need Kabbalah?

Answer: That’s incorrect. Kindness will not draw people toward eternity and perfection, and will not make people’s lives easier. You will not accomplish anything by starting to supply people with everything possible. They will remain on the same level and nothing good will come to them. You must give them the methodology for ascending to the upper world.

We exist in this world temporarily, in order to rise to the level of the Creator. If you want to do good for others—help them in this.

Question: Does that mean that the Kabbalists invented love your neighbor, unity, and connection?

Answer: Kabbalists did not invent it. They revealed it as being the upper law of nature. Since nature is integrated and global, everything within it is interconnected.

Question: In other words, they did not even presume that people would eventually just start helping each other?

Answer: People don’t do anything without ulterior motives. They act egotistically, believing that they are helping others. In this way they just calm themselves down.

Question: Then what did the Kabbalists mean when they revealed the laws of love and mutual guarantee? Doesn’t love your neighbor mean that you help him?

Answer: No! You must achieve a state when you feel your neighbor as yourself. And then the Creator will be revealed between you.

Revelation of the Creator is the higher meaning of our existence because through this we rise to the next, spiritual level of development. And our world exists only to push us toward this discovery.

What Is Bnei Baruch?

laitman_938.05Question: What is Bnei Baruch (Sons of Baruch)?

Answer: Bnei Baruch are the people who use the method of my teacher, the great Kabbalist Rabash, Rav Baruch Shalom HaLevi Ashlag. They realize this method on themselves and feel or try to feel that he is the one who is guiding them.

Question: What is Bnei Baruch (Sons of Baruch) today?

Answer: Bnei Baruch is a group of people spread out all over the world, with different languages, with various natural predispositions and mentalities, who study the works of Baal HaSulam and Rabash, and try to realize them.

Question: Why is Bnei Bauch an international organization?

Answer: Baal HaSulam writes about this in his main article: “The Arvut (Mutual Guarantee).” The main realization of Kabbalah must occur in the entire world, not only in the nation of Israel. The people of Israel are only a conduit. In principle, the whole Torah is given with the purpose of bringing the entire world, this whole shattered creation, to the Creator.

Question: What is Bnei Baruch’s goal?

Answer: The goal of the Bnei Baruch group is to reveal within themselves and to show to the entire world an example of uniting all people into a single whole where the Creator will be revealed.

What will prevent us from treating Mars just as we treated planet Earth?

Work In Faith Above Reason

laitman_208Our entire life, everything that surrounds us, and ourselves, all belong to a certain place, which with our rational minds, we call “this world.” But the upper system, the Creator, exists above our level and influences us so that we, with our own strength, with the help of our requests and prayers, understand our state and desire to rise above it.

The upper system spread from above downward, from the world of Ein Sof (Infinity) to our world in order to form our world. But we are obligated to activate it, to awaken it, by acknowledging it and putting it into action. We need to understand how particular our work is. With our desire we ignite the Light in the upper system, turn it on, force it to act upon us, and by doing so, we build it. Regarding this, it is written: “You created Me.”

This work of faith above reason, going in the upper system, we need to awaken and revive through our own desires. It is the only work that is given to us in this life. All the actions that we undertake on our level in this world are aimed toward understanding where we get our life force, our existence, our awakening, for what and to what we need to respond. In other words, we build the next level, awaken it through faith above reason or bestowal above reception.1

Faith is the force of bestowal, which is given from above. Faith = Bestowal. All that is needed for this is the demand that the greatness of the Creator be more important than material knowledge or reason. This will attract the reforming Light to us, which will raise us to the level of faith where we are ready to be above our reason, above all the disturbances and problems. And if we hold onto the power of faith, then with the strength of this faith, we merit the revelation of the Creator.2

The Creator’s reason is bestowal, faith; a person’s reason is the will to receive. To acquire the reason of the Creator means to receive the desire to bestow.3

If I receive some type of disturbance in my present-day reality, within my reason, then I understand that it comes from the Creator who is awakening me through this, helping me to raise to His level. That is why I ask for the greatness of the Creator, in order to rise to the level of faith, to bestowal above the revealed problem.

The question lies in why do I rise: simply to feel better? Then it is a Klipa, because I want to use the force of the Creator for my personal well-being. It turns out that the Creator is not important to me, faith is not important to me, but only that I feel good in my desires. It is the same with religions and other beliefs.

But maybe I am ready to remain with the unpleasant sensation in my desire to receive and above it build a desire to bestow, and that is why I ask to be raised to the level of faith. It turns out that I have two levels and I try to save them both, rejecting neither. The difference between them can then grow to such an extent that the Creator is revealed in it: between Bina and Malchut.

In each moment of life, we must try to remember that everything comes only from the Creator and with a specific purpose, so that I will use the revelation of evil and attribute it to the Creator as a reason to achieve bestowal, faith. That is how I work with faith above reason.4

New Life #1011 – Loyalty To Myself

New Life #1011 – Loyalty To Myself
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Summary

Without discovery of the Creator, a person is loyal to his ego and is unaware that the ego manages him to his detriment. It will not help a person to be loyal to himself because he doesn’t see the big picture or the desire of the Creator. The wider picture involves us emptying ourselves of what we naturally desire and filling ourselves with the power of love for others. It is necessary to work in a group with a teacher in order to understand this method of discovering the higher power. When the person attains equivalence of form with the Creator, he becomes one with the Creator and can then be loyal to himself.
