My Thoughts On Twitter 7/12/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Wishing to run away from the spiritual path, but there’s nowhere to go. So they stay and unwillingly continue, despite descents/ascents. They don’t despair, crying out for salvation—bestowal to the Creator… And they merit exiting from the ego into the quality of bestowal.

How long does one have to wander
to recognize
where and what needs to be corrected…

Those struggling to embrace the power of the group have a special soul. They’ll hear about self-cancelling to the group after 10-12 years of studying. If they don’t give up, they eventually hear that ego-cancelling is done only thru the group—thus we gain the tools of bestowal.

The Creator created the soul from top downward and broke it to give us a chance, by engaging in the group, to exit the ego-force to the power of the group. As much as we cancel ourselves to the group, we cancel ourselves to the Creator. A group is a vessel, and He is the light in it.

By replacing my ego’s greatness with the greatness of the group, and then thru the greatness of the group attaining the greatness of the Creator, I enjoy His greatness. So, the condition “from love of others to the love of the Creator” is a fixed law of man’s spiritual development.

Until the final correction, the importance of the group continues to grow. Particularly the group is where I receive obstacles to engage in it, which I overcome. Each time I cancel myself before the group, I find the chance to cancel myself before the Creator—and reveal Him.

We need to value the group since only through canceling ourselves in it will we be able to feel the upper force that fills it, while remaining concealed. Therefore, the condition of guarantee precedes the receiving of the upper reforming light called the Torah.

I switch from the power of my ego to the power of the group. I want to lose myself in them, for I don’t see other ways to exit myself. So, I arrange my relationships with the group and studies for everything to help me transition from the power of egoism to the power of the group.

#Trump represents a new economic concept vs. Bretton Woods. He needs allies, whose number will grow as the Western global project will inevitably collapse. #Putin fits! Trump and Putin’s opponents/the liberals are attacking them. The battle against the rivals requires coordination.

To gain the quality of bestowal, one must exit the ego. This can be done only by way of the upper force, in whose field we reside. But this force affects us in the measure of our efforts in cancelling ourselves before the group, instead of renouncing ourselves before the ego.

How to obtain the quality of bestowal? Desire for pleasure may wish to do work for bestowal if one feels that the quality of bestowal is more exalted and significant than receiving. Then, it wishes to gain this significance and is willing to change itself. Further, OM [Ohr Makif] does its jоb.

We came into this world in its fatal moments.The world faces a systemic collapse: markets, banks, trade, governments, followed by conflicts, starvation, and bloodshed. The crisis will be global and long—until people agree to change! Everything goes according to the upper plan!

Grab the Creator and don’t let Him go,
Like a baby grabs its mother,
Find contentment.

Cling to the Creator, hide in Him,
Hide from all adversities
And understand what their purpose is.

How wonderful it is to realize
That the Creator is no longer an alien,
But a loved one.

Why Does One Feel Fear Of Kabbalah?

laitman_282.02Question: Why does an insurmountable fear arise when one wants to practice Kabbalah?

Answer: Fear arises because of a lack of knowledge of what Kabbalah is.

There is nothing kinder, more practical, and more necessary than the correction of one’s soul. It is your eternal part that existed before your physical birth in our world, and will remain with you after the body’s death.

It is necessary to develop it so that even in this world you will feel the upper world through your soul and begin to associate yourself with it and not with the body. One must reach this. There is nothing intimidating about it.

Question: Can one escape fear and get a “safety cushion” through entering into a special inner connection with others who study Kabbalah?

Answer: Perhaps now you are being led forward exactly through what you describe. In principle, however, people study Kabbalah in order to understand their purpose. Studying Kabbalah as a means to escape fears and anxieties is also positive, though. There are people who come to Kabbalah because of fears and anxieties in order to somehow strengthen themselves in this world, in this life.

Where Does The Soul Go After Death?

laitman_604.03Question from Facebook When a person dies, where does his soul go?

Answer: The soul does not go anywhere since it did not exist in the first place.

A soul is considered as similarity to the Creator. That is, the desires I can form in a way that would be similar to the Creator to a certain extent are called “a soul.” It is a property of bestowal and love for everything that is not attached to me.

In other words, when you exit the boundaries of your ego toward bestowal and love, toward caring for those who are not inscribed in your ego whatsoever, then all your properties organized together at that particular moment (since they constantly change) are called a soul.

Remark: People who think they have a soul and such an attitude toward others surrounding them, certainly become sad when they hear this.

My Comment: An ordinary person does not have a soul. A person is simply an animal. He has a vital component that naturally dies with the cells of the animal body.

The soul must be obtained during our lifetime. We are given this life and its various states, that is, future lives, so that we would obtain our soul.

Question: Is this the purpose of a person’s life?

Answer: The purpose of life is only to create altruistic desires from one’s egoistic desires, which will be called “a soul.”

New Life #1017 – A Revolution In Consciousness

New Life #1017 – A Revolution In Consciousness
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

We are developed by the egoistic power, the desire to enjoy everything possible. We need a conscious revolution in human nature from receiving for ourselves to giving to others. Unlike past attempts to change human nature through forced brainwashing, this revolution is based on a change in our attitudes toward each other and the discovery of the upper force. This upper force is found within nature and has the power to open our eyes so we can see our connection as one in eternity.
