My Thoughts On Twitter 8/30/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

New year = rebirth. Although I lived, collecting Torah knowledge and Commandments, like everyone, now I realized that what matters is the aspiration to attain equivalence to the Creator via love of others and reveal Him in the quality of faith above reason (bestowal above reception).

BIN: “How Trump Can Reallocate the $200 Million Slashed Off Palestinian Aid”

The largest portal Breaking Israel News published my new article “How Trump Can Reallocate the $200 Million Slashed Off Palestinian Aid

And a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph (Exodus 1:8)

And a new king rose to power, and his name was Trump. And he ruled Israel with an iron fist, imposing economic sanctions on its citizens and stifling its international trade. And the United Nations celebrated as they finally managed to delegitimize Israel.

Such a horror scenario seems far from today’s reality. Trump is seen by many as an avid friend of Israel in a world that is becoming increasingly hostile toward it. However, the man who declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, who continues to protect Israel’s position in the international arena and who cherishes the Jewish people – is certainly holding the reins. With each passing day, Israel’s future seems to be dependent on his continued support.

But behind the show of sympathy for Israel, Trump is a shrewd businessman. Like a good salesman, he first grants you a sweet taste while making sure he can demand a handsome payment afterwards. In his outlandish way, Trump is paving the way – on both the Israeli side and the Palestinian side – for a peace deal that could grant him a level of prestige that no U.S. president has ever achieved before.

However, Trump is destined to fail in this area just like all his predecessors did. Peace between Israel and the Palestinians is possible only if it is based on the laws of nature.

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, peace between human beings in general is only possible through the activation of nature’s inherent binding force, and any plan that doesn’t take it into account will fail.

The people of Israel are the only nation founded on unity that’s based on the laws of nature. They lived by the natural system of human connection for hundreds of years until they went to a long exile, wandered the world and lost their foundation.

The creation of the Jewish people was nature’s way of making a mini-model of unity among humans that would later be extended to the whole of humanity. Therefore, Israel’s conflicts with its neighbors and with the rest of the world will gradually escalate until the people of Israel fulfill their natural role.

Video Game Addiction

laitman_959Question: The World Health Organization included video game addiction in its list of diseases and disorders. A person is considered addicted to video games if he dedicates more and more time to them “to the point that games take precedence over other life interests.”

What is the reason that a person sticks to the game so much that it becomes his life?

Answer: And what is our world? It is also a game.

So, there is nothing else, a person changes one to another. The game he enters obeys him, he exists in it, receiving feedback from and influencing it. For him, this is a closer spectrum of connections, events, and reciprocities.

He actively participates in it. People spend a lot of money and are ready to just live in this.

Question: Do you consider this a disease?

Answer: I believe that any hobby, if it does not distract from the purpose of creation, can take place as a leisure, but beyond that, it is already a disease.

Question: Is it possible to beat this disease?

Answer: I do not think that a person will willingly give it up. It is because replacing a fairy-tale world with a real one is simply stealing one’s life from oneself.

Question: For him life is a game?

Answer: In fact, it is not a game, but his life! And our life is a silly game.

Remark: You always talk just about one thing: Only when a person gets to the real meaning of life, then all this will become child’s play to him.

My Comment: All this will wither away by itself, because the prospect of revealing the true world, eternity and perfection will obscure all games, everything that he has today.

Question: Perhaps, that’s why there are games. Is it in order to move him closer to that?

Answer: Not to move him closer, but simply to brighten up time until humanity realizes what a hopeless, final state it is in.

Question: And when will this time come?

Answer: It depends on two factors: when humanity will have enough suffering and when Kabbalists will be able to approach it and explain what the matter is.

Outside Of Us Is Only The Creator

laitman_423.02Question: Why should I love my neighbor if, as you say, others do not exist and everything outside of me is only an illusion of my feelings?

Answer: All that is outside of you is the Creator, who appears to you in different, opposite properties to yours. They are specifically manifested as repulsive because on them one has to build his new anti-egoistic vessel (Kli) capable of absorbing all information, not only what seems pleasant to you.

Imagine how much you perceive from what you are feeling right now. You automatically reject all that you do not like, which is unpleasant for you. One turns away from what is unpleasant both externally and internally.

And so much more is hidden from us because our egoism initially does not want it. Therefore, we do not perceive what really exists.

How To React To Bad Intentions?

laitman_571.08Question: How can one correctly react to a person’s bad intention toward me? After all, in response, he automatically receives my own bad intention?

Answer: No. This is an incorrect formulation of the question. First of all, I do not sense intentions. I only perceive actions.

If, however, I am trying to act spiritually, then I can say that “there is none else besides Him” and this is how the Creator is directing the influence of this person toward me. It is not the person himself, but the Creator who stands behind him and governs everything.

Then, I act toward this person in an absolutely balanced way. He poses no danger to me, no negative sources of development—the Creator is doing everything for him.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 3/25/18

laitman_560Question: The intention of a mother for her children is always positive. Why is this attitude considered to be “for my own sake” and harmful to others?

Answer: We do not consider the intention of a mother to be either this or that; rather, it is simply a beastly intention. A mother does not work on herself to acquire this intention; it is given to her by nature.

Question: Can we improve our actions through intentions?

Answer: Certainly. Even when a person is brought before a court because of a misdemeanor, we clarify what his intentions were to both the prosecution and the defense. This can change the meaning of the action to a completely opposite action.

Question: What is a “reward” in the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: It is advancement toward the Creator, that is, a more and more corrected intention.

Question: Why should I be equal to the Creator? And what will happen after I become equal to Him?

Answer: “After” does not exist because entering the spiritual world immediately elevates a person above the framework of time. In the spiritual world there is no time, just as there is no regular physical movement. So, we cannot talk about the continuation of our questions, all of which are asked in the framework of time, movement, and space. In spirituality, limitations like these do not exist.

Question: What is more correct: to have an intention to unite or to carry out concrete actions for unification?

Answer: Concrete actions for unification are much more useful for our advancement. And after that, we will see how these actions transform from physical actions to more spiritual actions.
