My Thoughts On Twitter 10/31/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Ego is harmful relations between souls that used to be tied by good bonds and mutual help, but then the connection broke and turned into mutual hate, rejection, egoistic use of each other. This is what we must correct. The Creator will be revealed in the connection of #souls.

All our actions and appeals to the Creator are to connect the individual broken souls—desires that scattered from the common soul of Adam and fell from that quality. No individual soul is broken or egoistic by itself. It’s their connections that are broken and we need to correct.

If the group doesn’t follow the teacher’s advice to unite in spite of its ego-desires, then it doesn’t build itself by Kabbalah’s laws. It’s not a Kabbalistic group but a philosophy club where people study to satisfy their egos. Faith above reason is acquired only against oneself.

After 18 years in office #Merkel decided to step down from the post of Chancellor in 2021. She wasn’t Europe’s savior, her ideas (boosting Euro-integration and EU unity) aren’t met favorably.
But how will the accrued problems and migration crisis be solved?…it’s going to get ugly!

It’s time to practically realize all the theoretical knowledge received over many years. We aren’t able to, in order to ask for each other, since only the Creator can help us. This is why He sends us all the states and the teacher and books explain it. We try—and ask the Creator.

The contradiction grows with each spiritual degree, until the 125th.

The spiritual path lies in faith above reason, knowledge received from the teacher on how to proceed against my own. So just be guided by the upper one’s opinion, while keeping your own. Their difference is the height of my spiritual degree.

US Jews thought #antisemitism existed, but not in the USA.
They’re quick to forget anti-Semites, but they’ll be reminded more often. It’s time for “the final solution to the Jewish question.” Kabbalah suggests: by giving the world an example of unity! The nations are waiting for it!

A Special Kind Of Egoism

Laitman_509Question: You are saying that our time is different from others in that low souls have descended into the world and selfishness has increased. What do you mean by that?

Answer: I mean that we have come to the state when we need to break into the upper world.

With our little egoism, aimed only at earning more or succeeding in something, we cannot achieve anything. In life you have some goals, preferences, values, and spend all your life swirling among them.

Earthly goals, however, are not egoism. Real egoism manifests itself only in relation to spiritual unity between people—where there are serious obstacles.

Question: Is there egoism toward the Creator?

Answer: Of course. It is the kind where I want to be instead of Him! The Creator created egoism equal to Him, and so the ego feels such an impulse.

Question: Does this mean that Kabbalists have a connection with the Creator and they want to use Him for their own sake?

Answer: If you are already in this system and you have a connection with the Creator, then spiritual egoism is called a Klipa, and these are completely different, special obstacles that need to be corrected.

Different In The Egoism, Same In The Bestowal

laitman_943Question: If the soul is all of us, does it mean that it contains different properties because we are all different; is it always present and we just need to see its diversity?

Answer: We are all very different and yet the same. We are different in our egoism because everyone wants a little for himself, the way he wants it, in the form that is easier for him.

However, if we are talking about the property of bestowal and love, then everything is much simpler because I have to absorb the desires, properties, and aspirations of the other and try to fill them for his sake, as opposed to for my own benefit.

Then, I gather all my strength and abilities and focus on the other, like a mother who wishes to give all of herself to her baby.
