My Thoughts On Twitter 1/8/19

#2019:
#Kabbalah says: man requires only upbringing—instructions on developing these skills:
—how to be a “Human” in the general circle of humanity
—what to do to feel that: I, one of 8 billion, am responsible for them, and they are responsible for me. We are one common whole.

The law of the soul is the union of its parts,
That are so connected,
They are attained only out of fragmentation!

The Main Commandment—Unity

laitman_235“Keeping the commandments” in a Kabbalistic group is the connection between ten or less people who decide among themselves that they want to attain the Creator. Thus, they must connect and begin to assemble a group united according to the laws of the soul, to the laws of mutual bestowal. It is good if there are ten of them; however, if this does not work out, then it is written that the minimum is two people.

If we want to reveal that the Creator is bestowing, we must bestow to Him. First of all, we need to build an instrument of bestowal, so we start to create it between us. As it is written: “And from love of friends one can reach love of the Creator.”

We scrutinize what it means to love and bestow to each other. Everything should manifest in the connection between us and not somewhere in heaven. It is necessary to check whether all our previous ideas about connection between people belong to what should be manifested in the soul, that is, in the corrected ten. All our work consists of such clarifications of our actions and intentions.

If every day in every lesson, we clarify the type and nature of the connection between us and are always examining its strength and most importantly its quality, then we will begin to climb the steps. We ourselves determine how close we are to the Creator since He will not let us advance more than our preparation allows. We ourselves set the speed of our advancement.

We then begin to feel not our personal, individual states, but what is happening between us, in the center of the group, in our relations. This is what determines our attitude toward the Creator and the Creator’s attitude toward us. Our connection with the upper force happens in the point of our connection. Therefore, we are constantly working on this point and want only to identify, enlarge, and live in it more and more, until it becomes a point of our merging with each other and with the Creator.1

Principle Of Passing To The Upper World

624.02Rabash, “The Agenda of the Assembly – 1,” Article No. 17, Part 2: …everyone should examine himself and see how much effort he is giving to the society. Then, when they see that you are powerless to do anything for the society, there is room for prayer to the Creator to help you, and give you strength and desire to engage in love of others.

everyone should examine himself and see how much effort he is giving to the society. Then, when they see that you are powerless to do anything for the society, there is room for prayer to the Creator to help you, and give you strength and desire to engage in love of others.

Question: Rabash advises constantly trying to take care of society. Does it mean that he deliberately brings us to the wall of hopelessness?

Answer: Pointing to the need to exert all of a person’s efforts for society’s benefit, Rabash leads us to the understanding that it is impossible to serve society selflessly. Even if we talk about this with other people, they will say, “Why not? This is what we do.” Yet, in principle, it is impossible.

We need to gradually get used to uncovering the threshold that you cannot cross. However, this threshold must exist so that you would want to cross it, although you cannot.

Our problem is that we do not want this crossing, we do not touch it at all. The Kabbalist teachers are pushing us forward, “Go. Try. Pass this obstacle, as if you can exit yourself, as if you can enter society, think about it, love it and not yourself, give to it and not to yourself. Try again and again.”

Why? It is for you to know this boundary clearly marked by your egoism: you can act inside it, and outside of it, you have no strengths and opportunities. Then at the same time, you will understand that you need to overcome this boundary, but you do not know how to. Here you begin to ask, and then a prayer appears.

The principle is simple: In order to enter the spiritual world, you need the help of the Creator. The Creator gives help only when you ask Him. You can only ask when you really want it. You can only want it when you tried many times to achieve it and made sure that you want to, but can’t. That is where we start.

These are all consecutive actions that a person must go through before entering the upper world.

New Life #122 – The Meaning Of Work In Our Lives
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Imagine jumping out of bed with joy in the morning because you can’t wait to get to work. Imagine waking up to music sent from work, being greeted with care and concern by your colleagues and being offered coffee and cake upon arrival at your workplace. Imagine singing together at work, like children who are enjoying a game. A new and vast world of business based on integral education exists. With this new approach, based on mutual warmth and support, integrated and conscious managers will provide workshops for staff and teach them about the destructive human ego and the benefits of connection. Managers will specialize in making the connection between good communication and good productivity. Bonuses will be given on this basis. The uniqueness and personal realization of each employee will come to fruition in the connection among colleagues who will become more like friends. True confidence can only be obtained from this type of connection. When everyone is included in conscious development through work in circles or groups, the power and potential is infinite.
