Israelis and Israel are no longer seen as victims of the past—the pogroms, the Holocaust. It is distant history. Instead of the Jewish victim—the image of an Israeli soldier with a machine gun. Natural hate doesn’t require justification. It can be corrected only thru Jewish unity.

Thru pain the world will understand that the correction method must be as described and implemented according to the teaching of Kabbalah. The world knows its salvation is unification. It’s implemented in a ten and develops in practice according to the works and advice of Kabbalists.

There’s no time in spirituality, but change of states. So, “Israel” is one who aspires for similarity to the Creator. One may be in a state of “Israel” and in a state of “Nations of the World,” according to one’s yearning, if one’s life is arranged towards the Creator.
Otherwise his state is an animal.

The EU no longer has a leader to lead it, which gives place to populist crises. It’s the end of #EU I have been describing for 20 years. But it’s not late to introduce explanatory and educational work among the EU population. This will make a soft landing and radically change the EU’s course.

Although all 27 #EU states voted against the UK’s exit, this only speaks of their hatred towards the one who demonstrates their loss. The EU has not worked on unity. The result is a collective #Brexit . Uprisings and crises will reveal the absence of a united #Europe.

The #EU idea was good, but it turned out not one of the leaders of selfish states has any idea how to continue to lead the community. After all, unification can be egoistic—against external egoism, an enemy, or altruistic—against the ego. But how does one go against oneself?

Israel can’t take a step towards the Creator without pulling others along. First attract and attach others and ask the Creator to advance you together. Israel is the channel of the Creator’s force into this world. Alone it will achieve nothing, unless it pulls the whole world along.

Israel isn’t external attributes but the heart’s desire for the meaning of life.
Israel is who feels responsible for correcting the world, aware that he’s part of the common soul, and if the Creator gave him an awakening, he’s obliged to pull the rest of his soul w/him, all mankind.

It’s clear that English politicians degraded with the EU, that time equally works on everyone. #Egoism, as the basis of what is happening, leads everyone into #crisis. Information technology and the media have been hiding this, but isn’t it time #England took an example from Trump?

The West is degrading.
#Migration Agreement: Unlimited entry for everyone, with encouragement; criticism prohibited.
#Climate Agreement: The West will reduce #CO2 emissions and pay $100B/year to 3rd world countries.
#Egoism, seeing no further paths of development, consumes itself.

After a job done well, new ego-layer emerges. We should take it with joy and gratitude, and try to overcome. The unity achieved during the congress allows us to reveal a new layer of egoism in order to rise above it and advance towards the goal. This is the dynamics of the recovery!

There’s always a fall, rollback after unification. But there’s no return! It’s an emergence of a new egoistic will: “There’s no descent but only ascent in holiness.” We’re always progressing in the left and right lines, by turns. We must tie them together—remember the new attack.

Instead of falling into despair, losing strength and hope, you need to use reasoning to understand that this is the Creator playing with us, in order to advance us to truly spiritual work. So, instead of losing heart, we should rejoice that we are being raised to a new level!

Self-love is constantly evolving. Hence, there is no fall but a rise in the left line. Ego is growing, so we feel dissatisfied, confused, tired. But that’s because you’ve done work in unification, which resulted in another layer of the collective, broken egoism being exposed.

Responsibility for the world’s correction is on everyone yearning to merge with the Creator, and on the group. The Creator awakens a person to bring the whole world to Him. The correction begins when a group of “Israel” disseminates the method of collective correction in the world.

Created desire—“Nations of the World,” Malchut of the world of infinity. It feels being opposite to the Creator as shame, makes restriction and gets intention to bestow/the screen and Ohr Hozer. Result—decision to receive in order to bestow—the head/Isra-el-plan to reach the Creator.

#UN World Pact for #Migration undermines sovereignty of EU states. Without prior education how to unite, nations will destroy each other. #EU doesn’t need migrants; there are 17M unemployed in the EU. Reduce production to reasonable levels—and even Europeans will be too many.

Playing With The Creator By His Rules

Laitman_183.04Question: Life is a game. Do we play with the Creator too?

Answer: The game with the Creator is in the fact that I agree to do anything He wants in order for Him to advance me in this game. That is why I want to do it His way. I do not control the Light, but I agree to play by His rules.

Question: Why is it called “a game”?

Answer: It is because I do not have the strength to realize anything, and only by expressing my desires can I cause the Creator to act. I pretend, but not really, knowing absolutely clearly that this is what will lead to His actions.

Then, what is the meaning of prayers and requests? I am in one state while I imagine another. This is already a game. I play as if I am already in the next degree, in the desirable state. I want to change into it.

Question: At the current stage of our group’s development, what should we adhere to together?

Answer: To play the right kind of group.

“How To Redirect The Anti-Semitism That Surfaced In Yellow Vest Protests” (The Times Of Israel)

The Times of Israel published my new article “How to Redirect the Anti-Semitism That Surfaced in Yellow Vest Protests

What started as a movement against fuel-tax increases has rapidly fueled France’s already flammable anti-Semitism. “Macron is a whore of the Jews—a puppet,” slogans on signs declared and protesters chant in the streets. Opposition to President Emmanuel Macron by activists dubbed the “Yellow Vests” have shaken the country over the last few weeks.

When things go wrong, who is to blame? Of course, the Jews. Although the social turbulence and uproar might have been halted for now by concessions offered by the French government, the protests brought to the surface deeply rooted anti-Semitic sentiments that spread through social media. Videos claiming that “the real enemy is the Jews,” circulate on the web, in videos that hold Jews “responsible for the lowering of taxes on the rich and for the whole financial situation.”

How is it possible that, in a protest against economic measures and the erosion of the standard of living in France, the Jews became a focal point for expressions of the hatred and anti-Semitism of the demonstrators? Irrespective of the riots, according to a recent European Union survey, approximately 95% of French Jews are “very concerned” about anti-Semitism in their country. The big question is: what causes demonstrators, social activists, and many French celebrities to turn French Jews into their punching bag?

The answer to this troubling question comes from our sages in the Talmud. As it is written: “No calamity comes to the world but for Israel.” (Talmud Bavli, Yevamot) “This means, as it is written in the above corrections, that they [the people of Israel] cause poverty, ruin, robbery, killing and destruction in the whole world” (Rav Yehuda Ashlag [Baal HaSulam], “Introduction to the Book of Zohar”).

The determining factor in the equation is the suffering a person or an entire nation feels. If the pain is tolerable, then there are ways to deal with it. However, if the pain increases beyond sustainable limits, the masses take to the streets to demonstrate. When the suffering goes beyond all limits of endurance, a burning sense of hatred begins to grow which becomes sharply focused and poisonously directed against Jews. In the eyes of the nations of the world, the Jewish people are perceived as greedy manipulators who deserve a gloomy fate.

In light of the current environment in France, there is a sense of uncertainty within the Jewish community about how best to respond. As has been announced, some synagogues and community centers will close temporarily as a security measure, and entire families are considering emigrating to Israel. None of this will solve the situation, however. It also doesn’t matter if the French protesters were to receive from Macron all the funds in the world, including vacations to the French Riviera, hatred will remain forever deep in their hearts. Perhaps for a while we could lower the flames of hatred, but it will only be a matter of time until the next conflagration bursts forth. Evidence for this can be seen in the fact that the wealthy of France do not lack means, and yet many of them are clearly Jew-haters.

Baal HaSulam clarifies the phenomenon: “It is a fact that Israel is hated by all the nations, whether for religious, racial, capitalist, communist, or for cosmopolitan reasons, etc. It is so because the hatred precedes all reasons, and each one merely resolves his loathing according to his own psychology.” (Writings of the Last Generation).

This hatred is actually an expression of a powerful force within nature, which we must come to understand. According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, two opposite forces operate our entire reality: the positive and the negative, the power of giving and power of receiving, the power of connection and power of separation. In human beings, these forces are egoism and altruism.

The negative force mentioned above constantly grows in us, and when it is allowed to break out without any inhibitions, it manifests as excessive self-love which separates human beings and arouses hatred for the other. The only force that can restrain and use this egoistic nature without canceling it is nature’s positive force—a force that can elevate us from all of our divisions and contradictions into one well-oiled system that operates harmoniously.

Where does this crucial positive force come from? Where can it be found? It can be found among and between Jews themselves.

“The Israeli nation,” wrote Baal HaSulam in the article “The Arvut,” “had been constructed as a sort of gateway by which the sparks of purity would shine upon the whole of the human race the world over… until they develop to such an extent that they can understand the pleasantness and tranquility that are found in the kernel of love of others.” The entire human race exists in the network containing all reality as a system in which all its parts depend on each other. When Jews draw closer to one another, they serve as a “conduit” through which a positive and unifying force flows into the world. This harmonizing force has the capacity to spread throughout the entire network. In a nutshell, this force operated by the Jews will become “a light unto nations.”

Conversely, when the world does not feel this unifying force, people sink into the divisive force. The negative power created between them is unconsciously sensed and associated with the Jews. Because the connecting power of Jews lies dormant and sealed, and they are instead self-absorbed, the nations of the world—and in the present case, the French nation—feel instinctively that the Jews are guilty of all evil, and they cry out that “the real enemy is the Jews.”

Why are we seeing this phenomenon now among the French people? It’s because they are highly developed. In other words, the negative force of self-interest operates in them more intensely, and this is what motivates them to go out to the streets demanding change, all the while with a hidden desire for fulfillment that this change should derive from the Jews. The Yellow Vest protests are but one wave from a whole tsunami of protests that could sweep the peoples of Europe and the rest of the world. From day to day we witness the intensification of the negative force within the network of nature that causes people to behave more egotistically and become more demanding about their future. If we let this negative power prevail, we will hear more frequent reports of extreme terror, such as the deadly attack at a market that happened not by chance in Strasbourg, the epicenter of the European Parliament.

Thus, just as the French Revolution of 1789 heralded a period of turmoil and change of power in France’s history, so today, the French might be destined to bring about a new social revolution of unity and love, turning all their energies and rage to force the Jews of France and elsewhere to unite. The positive force is imprinted within Jewish genetic memory, and they possess the time-tested method for connecting all humanity: the wisdom of Kabbalah. Therefore, even a small effort on the part of all Jewish people of the world to unite in brotherly love will initiate the positive force to flow and spread throughout the world, to calm all the winds of rage in the streets and carry a positive spirit of peace and brotherhood to all humanity.

New Life 115 – Integral Course, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Life means having an active connection with the environment and the essence of evolution is a drive to grow. Since nature began to develop the desire to exist from a single spark, it has always been connected. Today, researchers are beginning to prove that plants are connected and even communicate in a network. The animate world develops through professionalism and cooperation. All of the still, vegetative, and animate forms of life are connected together in a single, intelligent, integrated system that manages itself and develops over time. Humans are the most dependent creatures in the environment and they are in a constant struggle with it. In order to improve our lives, we must understand human nature and the forces that manage our world. We have reached the end of evolution that began with the Big Bang and need a new source of illumination for the future.
