My Thoughts On Twitter 1/10/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Correction of the egoistic intention (for one’s own sake, Lo Li Shma) to the altruistic intention (for the Creator’s sake, Li Shma) happens by means of the influence of the Torah’s light on man. In the intention of bestowal (Li Shma) he feels a connection with the Creator, spiritual life, the upper world.

The Creator’s revelation to creatures in this world happens when, in a Kabbalistic group, in unity of aspirations, the common force is revealed of everyone’s aspiration among them and toward the Creator—the force of mutual bestowal, faith, reflected light…
….in which the upper force, the Creator, dresses.

The aim of creating the worlds and souls: to correct the egoistic desire to receive everything inside of you—to the altruistic desire to bestow / love, which leads to the Goal of Creation, the sensation of man’s “difference and similarity” to the Creator….
….till full adhesion by qualities in feelings and by thoughts in reason.

The Creator: leave Me but preserve the Torah, since only its light corrects you—and you will reveal Me. Hence do everything you can to correct egoism. I dwell only inside the Torah—there, you will reveal Me. All your other efforts are in vain. Those who seek Me will find Me.

The right study of Torah means a constant effort to ascertain that one is facing the Creator, holding on and not separating from Him, and by that wishing to cause joy to the Creator.

Prepare for the studies—studies with the Creator, envision yourself as the Creator’s student (Talmid Hacham) who studies the light—the force of correcting one’s ego, which He deliberately created so you’ll learn to bestow from Him.

Those who study Torah to correct the heart (desires) are called “wise of the heart” (Hochmei Lev) because they study Torah with the heart rather than with the mind—since Torah was given for the heart’s correction!

Creator: “I created egoism and I created Torah for its correction.”
If a person studies Torah not in order to understand it with the mind,
but to correct one’s egoistic heart with its influence,
he receives a force from above to be able to carry out actions for the Creator’s sake.

Kabbalah books are addressed to those who already attain the upper world
But the authors also indicate that their books are addressed to those who haven’t yet attained the upper world as well, since study of these books draws light that corrects souls ….
… and leads to revelation of the upper world.

After creating the ego, the Creator set its evil force exactly equal to the force of the light’s correction so the light will correct the ego without destroying it. Hence one must make every possible effort, in quantity and quality (without distraction), to draw the correcting light.

Realize The Importance Of The Society

laitman_938.04Rabash, Writings of Rabash, the Article “The Agenda of the Assembly”): Similarly, with love of friends, at the very beginning of the assembly, when gathering, we should praise the friends, the importance of each of the friends. To the extent that we assume the greatness of the society, one can appreciate the society.

“And then pray” means that 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.

The fact is that a person does not really want to do something for the sake of the society. Why should he care about the society, why think about it? This is a very hard work against one’s desires. Therefore, Rabash gives very clear and sharp instructions in his article.

A person must understand that his goal is tied precisely to the society, that the connection with the society and the connection with the Creator are one and the same. The society is specifically given to us so that inside of it we can work on getting out of ourselves, that is, so that we can lower the importance of our “I” and increase the importance of what is outside of us. This is a very complex system, a very difficult condition.

We cannot do this by ourselves. We can only ask for it, and even that we do artificially, saying: “Yes, I would like to,” although in reality we cannot want it. It is very hard for us to even think about it, let alone approach it.

Question: What does it mean that I give all my strength to society?

Answer: This is possible only if we receive from above such a force of bestowal and love that will oblige us to think and do what is beneficial and necessary for society. Then we are able to do it, and not otherwise. I cannot be above my nature, which automatically locks me inside myself and in the circle of the people closest to me.

New Life #124 – Management And Leadership In The Workplace, Part 2

New Life #124 – Management and Leadership in the Workplace, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

A manager using the integral approach will know how to turn his organization into a family, not just as a slogan, but in practice. It is a unique approach since the manager is continuously guiding the organization by working with the ego and not suppressing it. The manager conducts workshops for teams of directors who will discuss how a lack of connection is at the root of all the problems and this manager demonstrates how to connect above hatred. He establishes a good atmosphere that gently improves everyone and in which the directors feel emotionally impressed. A common mind is the outcome of working against our ego and ascending above the distance between us. An organization that changes to integrality accelerates the pace of its development. Establishing a good connection guarantees our success in terms of progress, innovation, and mobility.
