My Thoughts On Twitter 7/23/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

The 9th of Av is a day of mourning for the broken collective soul abandoned by the Creator’s upper light. We don’t wish for Him to return, to restore the broken soul—that is the destruction and the crime to regret. You have to lament the ruined Temple, the broken soul, within you.

The Treatise of Jonah: The 2nd Temple was destroyed by unreasonable hatred. Despite studying the Torah, Commandments, Charity—not selflessly, but for a reward. This means their efforts were not for unity. That’s why their work turned from the elixir of life into a deadly poison.

The destruction of the Temple occurs daily: If it is not spiritually restored—it is still in ruins! This is easy to see in our relationships: Not only do we not wish to be closer, but we constantly reject each other—thereby distancing the Upper Light of goodness and love.

We don’t want to correct ego-nature and build good relationships, the Temple. It’s done thru the awareness of the destruction. We don’t want unity, for we are the outcome of destruction. Hence, everyone understands self-interest and builds well-being on the destruction of others.

Turning Hatred Into Love

laitman_238.01Question: How are the levels of knowledge of the soul different and how are they measured?

Answer: They are levels of the revelation of the Creator.

The fact is that we reveal the Creator only to the extent of our similarity to Him, like any physical law. We are given a very simple property—a property of bestowal and love, emanation. We must discover this within ourselves.

To the extent that we can generate it, we will attain it according to the law of equivalence of form. As much as we can be similar to it from the inside, it will manifest itself from the outside.

The quality of bestowal and love fills everything, but we currently have absolutely no perception of it because we are opposite to it. As soon as we resemble it, we will begin to perceive it and reveal the upper world in which we will exist in this quality.

Question: Will I then see everybody around me as loving?

Answer: Yes. I will see everyone that way because by correcting my qualities from hatred to love, I correct all the enemies, turning them into loving ones. I will then see nothing bad outside and the enemies will suddenly become friends.

About this, it is written that the one who turns hatred into love is a hero among heroes.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 2/11/18, Part 1

Laitman_013.07Question: A person who reaches the highest level is a person who is completely corrected. What is his task and his relationship to people in everyday life?

Answer: It is to show people the possibility of spiritual correction. There is no other task for a person in our world except bringing the entire world to this state.

Question: A higher radiance operates on the reader when reading a book of Kabbalah. Is this enough in order to move from beastly love to spiritual love, to the attainment of the characteristics of the Creator?

Answer: It is not enough. You must perform what the Kabbalists write in their recommendations for working with the group. No matter how difficult it is to interact with others, it is still necessary.

Question: What in Kabbalah can be attributed to a person’s self-knoweldge if, as I understand, a person himself does not exist?

Answer: A created being reveals the human – Adam (similar to the Creator). To the degree that he discovers this similarity within himself, he is called a human (Adam).

Question: What determines the attainment of the nearest spiritual point?

Answer: Connection with my friends and then attraction of the upper Light. This makes it possible for me to ascend.

Question: What is the “inner voice” that seems to advise each one of us? Or is this intuition?

Answer: This is intuition that has no relevance to the Creator or the soul. Don’t think that the soul speaks within you.

Question: Is it possible to discover my mission in life?

Answer: The mission of life is to “break” yourself.

Question: How can a woman become like Malchut?

Answer: Just like a man can, only through promoting unity. Malchut is part of the Partzuf, the soul, which unites everything.

Israel LGBT Protests On 9th Av

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 7/22/18

The ego holds us captive, chains us to a dividing worldview in which we can never rebuild our society. At the moment, it seems like the need for change will only come with intensifying troubles, wars, struggles and protests. But there is another way. Shorter, faster and more pleasant to all of us. It is through consciously playing, through practice, through education.

For two thousand years the Kabbalists have been pointing to unity as a solution to all our troubles. They warn us in every way they can that if we don’t connect to our common spiritual root, the events of life will teach us to do so in a very difficult and long-winding path. Therefore, we must begin relating to the better future we want for ourselves and our children, to the positive relationship between all of us.
