Multi-Crises Of Egoism

laitman_252Egoism grows more and more, and reveals such desires that soon people will die of hunger and kill each other with nuclear bombs; there will be a global war of destruction of all by all. Egoistic desire is intensifying beyond all limits. It must either fulfill itself with everything that it desires or destroy others, considering them to be the culprits of its problems. This is the state that the world will inevitably reach.

The more the desire to receive grows, the more the weapons, wars, and problems in the world. Also, even the threat of a nuclear war, as Baal HaSulam wrote about, is already old news. Today, a cyberattack is enough to take all computers offline, and the entire world would plunge into darkness. There would be no light, nothing would work. This is how the world’s superpowers hold each other by the throat.

We will not even need nuclear weapons. Even without them we will starve to death, there will be no oxygen in hospitals, no water in the faucets, the beloved apps we use on our phones won’t work—all systems will stop functioning. This is even worse than a nuclear explosion. We cannot imagine a world without a computer network.

This is how the Creator compels humanity to accept His program. Otherwise, it is impossible to bring us small primitive egoists to a better state. We have nothing to blame the Creator for. He gave the world every possibility to accomplish a better life, gave us a special group called the nation of Israel and the methodology that could save humanity.

But look at what is happening now with this group—the nation of Israel? We are within our desire to receive and do not want to stick our head out of this bitter radish. Humanity suffers because the nation of Israel is not realizing the opportunities given to it. We were given the means to correct this state, but we are not correcting it.

We need to switch the upper management from negative to positive. With the help of one small switch, it is possible to illuminate the entire world.

One switch can turn off the electricity in the entire world. But there is this one small block standing on the path from the Creator to humanity. It is called Israel. Humanity’s fate depends on whether this block is functioning correctly or not. “Israel” is everyone in whom there is a point in the heart, awakening them toward connection in order to come to a cry to the Creator, to obligate Him to change the upper control from apparent evil to good.

Under merciful guidance, creation receives more upper Light and begins to comprehend where everything comes from and why, and then they will also want to unite. Since a spiritual spark exists in each person, each is a part of the shattered collective soul of Adam.

The spark, however, did not awaken in everyone to the degree that they can feel the influence of the Light. This is why we need to awaken the Light and strengthen it, which is only what Israel can do. Then, sparks in all people will also awaken and will want to unite and exist in one union. Ultimately, they will also become Israel, in other words, strive “straight to the Creator” (Yashar-Kel).

The reforming Light awakens the need for the Creator, the need for unity, and the need for bestowal within the creation. The spiritual spark can be on one of four levels: inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human. If the spark is on the fourth, human level, then in order to advance, it is necessary to overcome obstacles, problems, and doubts.

However, in the rest of humanity, this advancement will be much easier, like that of angels. We just need to support the surrounding Light and with its help, people will be able to accomplish acts of bestowal, connection, and love. They will not face inner struggles; there will be no class between Bina and Malchut. This is all only among the Kabbalists and therefore everything depends on us.

That is why the world’s attitude toward Israel will grow increasingly worse and will eventually reach the same level as Nazi Germany. Yet this attitude depends only on us. The nations of the world already blame us for controlling the world. So let’s start really managing it and bring the world more Light than there now is.

All control comes only through the Light; the Light awakens everything—the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human nature—to development. The more light, the quicker the development. If the Light advances us quicker then the informational genes (Reshimot) reveal themselves, then this is called “Achishena,” the hastening of time by the positive path, the one preferred by the Creator and by us.

If there is insufficient Light to enlighten the state revealed by the Reshimot, then it is experienced as adversity, even war. I hope very much that we do not come to a total world war. I think that the state will materialize differently, but it will not be much easier for us.

Imagine there are no supplies, no businesses, no gas, no food, no water in the tap. For the person living in the modern world, this is a catastrophe. This is the path of suffering.

However, there is a path of Light: if people feel that there is the methodology of Kabbalah, which is capable of saving them from death, and if they are ready to study and realize it. It is better not to wait for a crisis but to make the jump from today’s state into a spiritual one right now. Otherwise, in the very near future, we will have crises in economics, in human relationships—a multi-crisis.1

The Highest Self-Love

laitman_622.01Question: What is self-love?

Answer: The highest self-love is the desire to get the Creator to “run errands for me.”

Question: So all the people who are asking something from the Creator are the biggest egoists?

Answer: Of course. This expresses their hatred of the Creator because they want Him to serve them.

They think about themselves, not understanding why He gave them this state. By their requests, they demand that the Creator change in relation to them. And He says, “No, it will not work, I am the absolute and I do not change. You will change and you will start seeing how I appear better, until you see me as absolutely kind and loving. It depends only on you!”

Question: What happens when I start changing in relation to the Creator? Why does He do this? Why should I change and not He?

Answer: When one changes from the opposite of the Creator to resembling Him, one embraces the entire universe from minus to plus, absolutely everything that is created by the Creator, including all His direct and inverse properties. And then one becomes like Him!

It is His desire that we become like Him in height, greatness, possibilities, eternity, and perfection.

Everyone Has Their Own Reality

Laitman_043Question: Is there any upper reality that exists regardless of our sensation?

Answer: There is an upper reality. If someone comprehends it, then it exists relative to him. If one doesn’t comprehend it, then it doesn’t exist for him.

Now we all feel the earthly reality in the same way because we are on the same egoistic level.

Question: On an altruistic level, will we also feel one reality or each will feel his own?

Answer: Together we will feel each other and one reality. Moreover, everyone will have their own reality, but they will all be similar.
