My Thoughts On Twitter 12/6/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

When the Jewish nation converges and unites, the world converges and unites around them toward goodness. When the Jewish nation hates itself, others hate it as well.

I wish American Jews quick awakening, awareness of their mission, the opportunity to correct themselves …
…. and through them—the whole world. #antisemitism #tikkun

The French people hate #Macron?
No! They hate their situation:
9.1% unemployment rate, 14.2% below the poverty threshold, violent attacks and drug-trafficking in the open. But nothing will change this trend.
The solution: institute across-the-board, mandatory education with wages
just as for employment. #ParisRiots

#Hanukkah isn’t construction, gathering sparks from the ruins of broken desires.
We gathered the sparks—desires to bestow, Bina, faith.
Then we start building the Temple in desires to receive—until Purim. The Temple was built out of the matter of creation …
… every person’s egoism, connected to others by love, light.

Pharaoh is inside every person and he proclaims, “I won’t let you unite with others.” This war over ascent above the egoism that divides us is the War of the Maccabees. It takes place on every degree of egoism in a person. #Hanukkah2018

We are able to make out, find out and reveal qualities of the Creator’s light only inasmuch as we attain opposite qualities of darkness.
This is why we must go through all the states of darkness, opposite to the light. Experience enables us, while going through darkness …
… to anticipate the forthcoming revelation of light. #spirituality

All the “bad” states throughout the day come to us only to give us the chance to see the light on their background. Light is the quality of bestowal, a good attitude to the friend for the sake of the common goal and not for my own benefit.

Darkness to me is the background that offsets the light, unity, the Creator.

A stop is necessary since it’s impossible to smoothly go from one war to another. At first the war was about not receiving. Once we attained rejection of reception on all degrees of desire, Malchut, meaning the degree of Bina, we have to stop before starting the new work.

#Hanukkah (“they stopped here” – “Hanu-Koh”) is a break between two wars. Hanukkah is preceded by the first war for bestowing desires, GE, while the second war after Hanukkah, the break—is for receiving desires, AHP.
These are different wars, so there has to be a break in-between.

The force of unity must rule over the forces of division.
It is thanks to the division that we increase the force of unity, overcoming the forces of rejection and raising unity above them.
Good grows only out of evil. Hence the Creator created evil and gave light for its correction.

If I annul myself to the group, I reveal that they aren’t friends, but spiritual qualities that only seemed to me as people having various problems and flaws. In reality, they are nine angels sent to help me, lifting me up on their wings.

The Creator brought me to the group and said: “Choose it, this is your good fate.” And I must annul to them—then I’ll be able to rise up with them. It’s the same at every level, degree—I must annul to the ten, which I see as being worse and worse…

A Kabbalistic group, the ten, works like an elevator.
If one invests in it as much as he can, the elevator starts lifting him to the next floor or spiritual degree. Thus, each time, a person rises via the group by drawing the upper light. Me—the group—light (the Creator).

Each One Is Responsible For All, And All For One

laitman_962.3The purpose of creation is our correction of the shattering that occurred between us, the egoistic beginning that stands between us which is killing us, creating a feeling of temporary and damaged existence, into a desire to unite “as one man with one heart.” Everyone will perceive the others as himself, not feeling any difference between his friend and himself.

Whether we like it or not, this is the goal, and all of humanity is moving toward it. But of course, there are parts that are more advanced along this path, and others less so. This is not up to us; it depends on the informational genes and desires placed in each of us that determine each person’s place in this process: whether he is at the forefront, nearing, or even entering correction, or if he is trailing in the back where this process and the goal of creation are not even felt.

Our worldwide group Bnei Baruch is honored to be at the very forefront of those who implement the correction of creation in our generation. First, we need to connect with each other, and then the rest of humanity will join us to become as one person with one heart.

Such a connection is called mutual guarantee, a special connection where everyone depends on each other and each person is responsible for all others. We are the pioneers, and the rest of the world will follow. To the extent that we succeed in uniting, we will be able to feel within our common vessel the power of unity, which is called the Creator, the upper Light.

According to the power of our unity, the Creator is revealed more and more, as the Light of Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Haya, and Yechida. Yechida is the highest form of connection we can possibly achieve. This power is revealed only because of our efforts and due to our success, and this is why we have been given the science of Kabbalah, the science of connection, the goal of which is to lead a person to love his friend like himself, which is the formula of good and right connection.

The goal of this congress is to scrutinize the conditions needed to achieve the principles of creation, its program, and purpose. Therefore, our goal is to reveal the Creator inside our connection in practice.

To the extent of our success, we will influence all others because we are the center in this generation where the strongest and the most advanced people are concentrated in terms of implementing correction. These forces will spread from us to all who want to join us that feel that a higher power and this entire life pushes them to unite.

These days, the necessity of such connection is becoming apparent all over the world because people are feeling not just their suffering, but also its cause. And this is already the revelation of evil that gradually leads us toward correction.

We have a big task ahead of us and each one has to feel responsible for the rest as an important part of a single system. If he fails to realize his function to the fullest extent, this flaw will be felt in the entire system on all its levels and in all the connections.

The first step in achieving this connection is to separate oneself from one’s own benefit, to raise above one’s “I” and dedicate oneself to the group, like a mother who is completely devoted to her baby. Then the only thing of importance for me will be what benefits or hinders the connection, and each moment I will check myself according to the internal or external conditions that the Creator brings us in order to lead us to the one common soul.

In this common spiritual vessel, the single upper force will be revealed to us, and it will let us enter the mutual guarantee, the feeling of unity, which is the upper spiritual force. That is why we must raise above our “I” and enter the “We.”1

One-Way Communication

laitman_962.7Remark: In Rabash’s time there was no Internet. Today social networks are highly developed. When disseminating on social networks, there is a risk of succumbing to corporeal pleasures. They literally suck people in.

My Comment: Dissemination can only be in that I express my opinion, the opinion of Kabbalah, or the opinion of my teachers.

We have only one-way communication! Whoever wants to—come to our site and study. Whoever does not want to—is free to leave. We do not engage in any dialogs or discussions.

Question: Will people in the group of the last generation absorb something from others around them?

Answer: We have nothing to absorb from them. We can only regret what they spend their time and energy on.

We can perceive from the others only their desire to come closer to an understanding of the rational, good, and eternal, but nothing else.

The Final Goal Is Universal Correction

laitman_292Question: Where is the world headed?

Answer: If you look at the final goal, then the world is moving toward a good state—universal correction. This is the goal we must reach.

In principle, it initially already exists in the spiritual world. First, the goal is always determined, and only afterward events unfold according to it, which depend on our behavior. We determine how to achieve it.

The spiritual world is built differently than our world. It unfolds from the end to the beginning. That is, you gradually determine what you need to achieve and then how to achieve it.

If, for example, an architect designs a building, he approximately imagines his ultimate goal, but it does not exist. And here, the goal does exist. Everything is determined by our participation.

We need to determine precisely what the goal is so that it is always in front of us and we move toward it at every moment.

In Kabbalah, it is considered as going by faith above reason when we go in bestowal above reception, absolutely clearly imagining the properties of the spiritual world and trying to realize them, as if we already exist in it.
