Spiritual Dimensions

Laitman_931.02Question: In what units does Kabbalah measure the strength of spiritual unity: the density of communication, the power of the connection? Why is the measure of connection equal to the measure of spiritual reward?

Answer: The measure of egoism is graded in five steps: zero, one, two, three, and four. If I rise above egoism and turn it into altruism, then I get the same number of spiritual steps: Malchut, Zeir Anpin, Bina, Hochma, Keter. Or five worlds: Assiya, Yetzira, Beria, Atzilut, and Adam Kadmon.

In each of the 125 degrees there is a clear demand, how to rise on it, how to stop, make a certain spiritual action, get the Light concealed in this step, and move on.

These are very accurate measurements. In our world, there is no such precision because here we have to prove everything; for example: one plus one = two. In the spiritual world, these proofs are part of its structure because it consists of two absolute opposites—the Light and the desire that is generated by it.

All People Are Parts Of One Common System

laitman_423.03Question: If other people are like animals according to their needs and interests, why should I try to come closer to them? And how could it be that something excites me yet doesn’t interest them at all?

Answer: All other people are the same as you. They are all necessary elements of one common system. Each has his or her own part. By working on yourself, you must come closer to everyone, try and pass on the higher information to them, and give them the opportunity to connect to it.

To the extent that we connect together in the system of “love your neighbor as yourself,” we elevate our world to the next level.

I don’t think there are people, organizations, religions, or methods in the world that would object to the call to love your neighbor. After all, day by day, we increasingly understand that the world is integral, interconnected, and that we need to do something with ourselves.

If we continue to be so fragmented and torn apart, we will lead the world to disaster. Also, if we try to connect with each other in one living organism, its cells will start functioning correctly as in a single system, then in this healthy organism, we will feel the higher life and ourselves existing in the spiritual field.

New Life 1048 – The “Day Of Judgment” Part 1

New Life 1048 – The “Day Of Judgment” Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

The days of judgment practiced in Judaism are external signs of what we need to maintain within us. According to Kabbalah, the meaning of the “Day of Judgment” is that a person examines his life and makes law and judgment for himself, “Where am I going? According to Kabbalah, “Judgment Day ” must be fulfilled in a person every day as a self-examination: “Do I progress to life with love?”
