Everything Is Achieved By Prayer

laitman_239Question: What desires are there in spirituality besides the desires to connect with other people?

Answer: None. We come from the broken vessel of Adam, and therefore we only need to unite with each other. There is no need to philosophize. I do not know how I need to connect, with whom, by what properties, etc. I only have to expose myself to the influence of the upper Light.

I cannot be smarter than the upper Light, but can only cause its impact so that it corrects me. I cannot be above the point of my correction, and so I only ask. Everything is achieved only by prayer.

See The True Picture Of The World

laitman_928Question: Are my desires also a test?

Answer: Your desires are the basis on which you build your spiritual Kli (vessel). There is nothing superfluous, nothing hostile in the world.

Try to see in everything the property of the Creator, His preparation, His help, meaning that which is referred to as help against you. You will then find that all of a person’s external and internal problems are needed only to recognize that it is all done by the Creator.

When you begin to agree that everything comes from the Creator, you will suddenly begin to feel your connection with Him through all these problems. I feel bad here, I feel bad there, but it is also different: the Creator does all this so that you direct yourself to Him.

It turns out that you already create the correct picture of our world and the spiritual world. So try to act this way at every moment, and you will see how everything will become manifested in you: how the picture of our world that obscures the truth will begin to dissolve. You will understand that it is all a sham, a theater that the Creator purposely portrays in front of you, and that you have to see Him through all these puppets, as He acts on you.

Why Respect A Person?

laitman_294.3Question: What basic feelings and virtues of each person deserve respect and why are so many people deprived of it?

Answer: We need to respect only the aspirations and efforts of a person that are aimed at humanity’s benefit. Not for the good of oneself, one’s nation, or one’s family, but only for the benefit of humanity. If we respect this, we will see the extent to which a person overcomes his egoistic nature for the sake of belonging to, and sacrificing for, the entire world.

I think all people should overcome themselves, their egoistic desire. If each of us sacrifices ourselves in this way, then in response we should receive gratitude and respect from society. Everyone—the children at home, the wife, the relatives, the parents, the environment, the friends, and the whole world—should be grateful to a person and appreciate him only to the extent of his contribution to society.

A person is created in such a way that he needs the recognition of society. By this, in essence, he expresses himself, his “I.” If we make society protect a person and respond to his contribution to humanity, this will obligate everyone to be an active part of humanity. We will see from everyone only good things in relation to the entirety of human society and we will see what contribution each one makes.

Therefore, we need to establish such laws in our society so that everyone can be assessed only by their contribution to humanity and so that it is easily visible.

If we measure a person only according to these criteria, if everyone knows that this is how he is assessed, this is how he is treated, then he will have no way out. He will have to become a healthy cell in the general body, that is, a person that is as useful as possible for humanity.

New Life #1054 – The Wisdom Of Kabbalah As A Scientific Method, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

By nature, the person is a small, egoistic animal who does not see beyond the limits of his perception. Only after we transcend our nature and acquire the loving nature of the Creator can we investigate His providence over us. The wisdom of Kabbalah is based on experiments that a person conducts within himself after he transcends his egoistic nature. It investigates the hidden world that is not perceived in our five senses. The Kabbalistic researcher must prepare himself by being present simultaneously in both the force of giving and the force of receiving in order to successfully experiment. He studies his nature as opposed to the nature of the Creator, which is a supreme force or a force of giving and benevolence. The main research question is, “How do I discover the upper force in the maximum at every moment in my life?”
