Only by feeling the Creator’s greatness is the heart tamed, so increase trepidation. And the questions are to lack the Creator so He may open your heart and eyes, to be worthy of His greatness. A manifestation of sin each time makes you climb the steps of the Creator’s greatness.

The Creator becomes necessary to receive answers, therefore you must walk by faith above reason.
Then you see you are exhausted & need the Creator.
Only the Creator can give strength to walk by faith above reason.
What the Creator gives is, in fact, called the Creator’s greatness.

To exalt the Creator is to ask Him for strength to walk by faith above reason. To do so, don’t answer your questions with the earthly mind, but ask the Creator to answer. The ego calls to follow the commandments while faith above reason obliges to walk disregarding what ego knows.

While in descent, think: if the Creator awakened you—how ready you would be for spiritual work.
Imagine, as if you feel the Creator’s presence—how then you would thank and praise Him!
So must you now thank and glorify the Creator, as if you have already been honored with perfection.

If the group intends to delight the Creator, they can add in the work by adding in the Creator’s greatness, for in the measure of His greatness they can cancel themselves before Him and do everything for His sake. The Creator’s greatness will oblige to do work for Him and enjoy it.

The group must talk about the greatness and importance of the Creator because to this extent they’ll be able to:
—feel the desire to cancel oneself and unite with Him,
—go by faith above reason that He rules the world by good governance,
—start loving the Creator with all your heart and soul.

Try to ensure that the only reward for all your efforts is a sense of the Creator’s greatness, all prayers —to feel His greatness, for the Creator is hidden by the first restriction  [Tzimutzum Aleph] and one can’t appreciate His greatness; hence, we ask the Creator to feel it, especially while studying.

Starting spiritual work we want to get Ohr Pnimi [Inner Light] requiring pure Kelim [Vessels]: Tzimzum Alepsh—screen [Masach]—Ohr Hozer [Reflected Light]. But Malchut receives from Ohr Makif, i.e., a beginner without likeness to the Creator can receive from Ohr Makif if he raises importance of Ohr Makif as the Creator’s …
… receives distant emanation as correction.

Isra-El are those who strive for the perfect state, in which they were prior to the breaking of the system Adam. A desire to feel the integral system and the force acting in it, binding all together, is called Isra-El, Yashar-El —”straight to the Creator.” Regardless of nationality.

Evolution of broken nature, without Israel’s work, is called ego-development. Without applying Kabbalah, Israel can’t fill its role as glue binding nations. Israel is who is conscious of this mission. The nations are pushing Israel to unity and Israel is fulfilling it among nations.

After the breaking of the soul of Adam, the fall into sin, Israel, who unified peoples, vanished, and their egoism began to manifest. This process goes on for centuries. Today, division of nations requires the glue. This will show in growing #Antisemitism.
#Israel must realize its mission.

Israel in the common soul of Adam tied all its parts prior to breaking, so Israel has no place in the world; its mission is to bind all nations. This bond gives everyone a higher life, filling space between us and defining everyone’s aspiration toward the Creator yashar-kel = isra-el.

Democrats view a #Mexico border wall as immoral. But it’s immoral not to build it and solve the problem at the expense of the citizens of the country that has 40 million poor. Crisis begins. The country must protect its citizens.
The #Torah says: the poor of the city are more important than others!

YEAR 2019 predictions: Collapse of the global world, despite liberals’ efforts; degradation of societies and states; an increase in #isolation. #predictions

YEAR 2019 predictions (continued): Collapse of the world #financial system; strengthening of the US industrial #elites; abolishing of the international US treaties; crash of #StockMarket; possible #Trump‘s assassination, in order to launch a depression and unrest in the US.

Does Each Kabbalist Have His Own World?

laitman_209Question: In the corporeal world, we have a general picture of its perception: the sky is blue, the sun is yellow, and so on. You say that in the spiritual world each one will see his own picture. Isn’t there a general picture? Did every Kabbalist have his own world?

Answer: Each Kabbalist is in his own state but they describe them in approximately the same way; they have one key. They understand each other.

At any spiritual degree, you will feel what you sense with your qualities. In our world, everyone has the same qualities—the five organs of perception. In the spiritual world, there are also five sensory organs—Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut—through which you perceive it, but it is you who perceives.

In the spiritual world everyone is at a different level because there are a large number of degrees: 125 basic ones and each consists of many sub-degrees.

Therefore, if you want to equalize yourself with others, you take a Kabbalistic book, and by studying it, you begin to feel what the Kabbalist who wrote it felt.

Reading, for example, the works of Ari or Talmud Eser Sefirot by Baal HaSulam, you feel what they felt when they described it. Also, you must act as it is described, with your screen at the same level. However, usually you are on other levels so you have seemingly different worlds.

Do I Create The Spiritual World?

laitman_752.2Question: The spiritual world is real, and the corporeal world is an illusion. Is it true that I create the spiritual world and the corporeal world is an objective reality within my desire to receive?

Answer: You yourself do not create anything. It is just that you can change the spiritual world, and accordingly, its effect upon our world will change. Yet, in the corporeal world itself, we do not change anything.

You see how history is unfolding and we cannot change anything in it. Today, what we said twenty years ago is coming true because people do not change.

Question: If we cannot change anything in the material world, why do we need the illusion of the ability to act and make changes at its level?

Answer: If you do not yet exist in the spiritual world, then how can you change anything? You have to be in our world, study what can be done, and gradually, piece by piece, transfer your efforts, through the ten, into spiritual ones.

Question: Does it mean that nothing can be changed on the level of this world?

Answer: It can be changed if people want to get closer to their spiritual roots. Changes occur only through the upper degree. All control is from above.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 7/8/18

laitman_961.2Question: Are there characteristics of the spiritual root that I can aspire to?

Answer: Certainly. The characteristics are intelligence, knowledge, a sense of eternity, perfection, that is, every detail in the characteristic of bestowal, which is a common denominator for all fulfillments. The characteristic of bestowal is absolutely opposite to us; we don’t want it at all, but we would happily receive what is revealed within it.

Question: If the higher root manages all the details in every moment, what is the role of the branch?

Answer: The role of the branch is to reach a state in which it perceives the upper root as it is, without any arguments about it; this state is called the “direct connection of the created being with the Creator.”

Question: With the help of the wisdom of Kabbalah can a person regulate the degree of pleasure or suffering of how he is governed by the upper root?

Answer: From the wisdom of Kabbalah a person receives a method for attracting the Light of correction on him. The upper Light that descends on a person transforms him from a state of being opposite to the Creator to a state in which he is similar to the Creator. The person begins to feel a positive influence from the Creator and secondly finds the Creator behind this influence.

Question: If a person finishes his life before realizing his spiritual destiny, will he be born again?

Answer: We don’t die and are not born; we only pass through our sensations from cycle to cycle. So there is no need to relate to life and death as something fatal.

Question: How should one relate correctly to a desire to watch a football match?

Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah is not opposed to this; a person doesn’t need to lock himself in his room; he must play a little. Nonetheless, it is up to him to understand what is most important for him in the short life that has been given to him.

Question: Could it be that I am refusing to carry out the plan of creation but am unaware of this so I will face great blows and suffering?

Answer: Someone who doesn’t carry out the plan of creation is constantly beaten. We see this in the example of the Jewish people. Regarding the plan of creation, they are more developed than the rest of the nations, and so throughout history they have been beaten. As it is said: “…he who increases knowledge, increases pain” (Ecclesiastes 1:18).

Question: As a Kabbalist, how do you relate to the life and death of relatives, students, and the teacher?

Answer: There is no life and death, there is existence in all kinds of states. We must agree with the states we are in and we must carry out everything possible in these states.

Question: It seems that there is a strange formula that arises from this: the higher the level of development, the more suffering people or a person receives?

Answer: That is actually how it is throughout the world. It is said: “…he who increases knowledge, increases pain.” By adding to and increasing his knowledge, he expands the range and begins to see greater values of plus in contrast to minus. Therefore, he feels that these things are not connected together and this causes him to suffer.

Question: How is it possible to differentiate between the “instructions of the Creator” and the personal or collective “advice of the ego”?

Answer: To do this you must direct yourself precisely toward “There is none else beside Him” (Deuteronomy 4:35), and then you will see that there is truly nothing else besides the Creator: There is no collective ego, nor is there your ego; there is only the inner voice of the Creator who is telling you something. One must adjust oneself to this.

Question: How is it possible to differentiate between actions that give pleasure to the Creator and actions that don’t give pleasure and that are generally of no value if a person doesn’t receive a reward for his actions?

Answer: Kabbalists say that the only action that gives pleasure to the Creator is an act of unification in a group, and from the group there is an appeal to the Creator with a common desire.

Question: As a result of suffering, why do some people become more stubborn in their worldview that basically caused them to suffer?

Answer: Very good! Stubbornness and persistence are very good things.

Question: If I regularly watch your broadcasts on YouTube by myself with great desire and interest, am I part of the spiritual group?

Answer: Yes. Those who are with us and study even one hour per week, are participating in the spiritual group.
