We exist in a system of forces that develop us.
In the 20th century we thought that the next social form is a global humanity. In the 21st century it’s clear that nature won’t do this by itself.
The world is at an impasse.
Kabbalah says: nature (the Creator) builds a global humanity…
… by our conscious desire.

The Creator made the vessel of the soul and broke it. We must identify the breakage, the gap between us, and how to bridge it, be included in one another. Despite our reluctance to unite, we come closer against our will—and by the light’s force, attain unity …
…. and equivalence to the Source.

Two lights of Torah:
—light of correction (of desires)
—light of attainment (Creator’s revelation)
At first the light begets the will to bestow, the Kli.
When one can already act with an intention for the Creator’s sake,
he will find out that only the Creator can give the Torah’s
… light, so man will be able to bestow.

Before the study one must figure out why he is going to study #Torah:
—to know what’s written in the books
—or to receive the Torah’s light, which annuls his ego, thoughts of the self and returns him to the Source; he does not wish any knowledge or fulfillment in reason …
… he wants only a change in himself!

We’re all different parts of one mechanism. We must only connect all the parts. Yet we sulk, each one about his own state. But each one’s state is corrected! The problem is only the right connection with others. But Nature completes this work from above too.
Our participation is to desire this!

One studies Torah:
—to carry out commandments
—because one has to study it.
One studies Kabbalah:
—to receive the Torah’s light that corrects egoism and gives faith, the force to bestow and become equal to the Creator (light of Hassadim);
—by the force of faith, in the light of Hassadim, to attain the Creator, light of Hochma, the goal of creation.

The force allowing one to work in the group in conditions of concealment is called Covenant, Mutual Guarantee. When I fall, I lose my strength, but the group gives me strength. When I rise, I give strength to those who fell.
One must constantly play with the group as if together we are ready to reveal the Creator at any cost.

Reviving The Network Of Forces Of The Upper System

laitman_264.01Question: Why were we given the sensation of independent existence in this world? It totally confuses us and doesn’t allow us to do something on our own.

Answer: On the contrary, you are given the opportunity to do everything to become like the Creator, to reach His level! It is a tremendous job.

Maybe it seems to you that if you say: “There is none else besides Him,” with that you wash your hands of everything: “You have problems? Contact the celestial administration, but I have nothing to do with it.”

No! You have to change yourself so that you will completely understand, feel, and discover for yourself the upper system and see how it operates absolutely everything through an infinitely thin network. Only by attaining the entire network of forces that govern the feelings, thoughts, and various connections between opposing creatures, will you be able to say that this indeed is the network of connections about which it is said: “there is nothing else but it.”

In the book A Sage’s Fruit, Baal HaSulam writes: “All the thoughts that arise in a person’s mind are actions of the Creator. That one seemingly attracts them from somewhere, or that they are born within him—it is a deception and the source of all deceptions. Any thought, even the most insignificant one, the Creator sends into the mind of a person, and He is the driving force of man, animal, and everything living.”

We need to clearly feel this and act accordingly. We must directly participate in this network of forces, to live within it, to bring it to live. We turn it on.

When There Is Longing For Spirituality

laitman_933Rabash, “The Agenda of the Assembly – 1,” Article No. 17, Part 2, 1984: And afterwards, everyone should behave the same as in the last three of the “Eighteen Prayer.” In other words, after having pleaded before the Creator, The Zohar says that in the last three of the “Eighteen Prayer,” one should think as though the Creator has already granted his request and he has departed.

Question: Why does Rabash draw an analogy between a prayer and the assembly of the society?

Answer: The Torah and all the holy books are intended not for religious people but rather for us to use them in our practical spiritual work.

Question: Is the prayer a program of a person’s actions in the group?

Answer: Of course. What else is it written for? It is an elevation of the desire that you raise to the Creator so that He will give you what is required for your work.

If a person cannot come to prayer, it means that he does not have such a need (Hissaron), there is no sense of lack, strength to move forward, longing, and hunger for spirituality.

Question: Can everything that Rabash writes about the order of the assembly of the society occur at the same place and at the same time?

Answer: Neither geography nor time matters. This can occur at different times, between different friends.

Question: Are these cumulative states?

Answer: Yes, but in each of us they are accumulating arbitrarily, not necessarily at the same place and at the same time. In spirituality, this is not a rigid function.

New Life #125 – Managing The Process Of Integration In The Workplace

New Life #125 – Managing the Process of Integration in the Workplace
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Introducing the integral approach to the workplace should be like automatic transmission: natural, soft, and gentle. No change can be made unless people are ready for it internally. More people are recognizing that humanity is undergoing a very special transformation as the global crises and bankruptcies continue. The integral approach will be presented as a means of healing efficiencies, profits, and human relationships. The safe, warm, and bright future picture that will be presented is one based on cooperation, equality, mutual support, and complementation. It is best to begin this integral education with managers and then gradually advance to the lower positions once staff start to feel uncomfortable with the differences between them. Organizations will need representatives who offer close and continuous guidance toward spiritual connection because the ego never goes on holiday. As staff feel a pleasant sense of harmony without pressures and conflicts, they will share lunches during break times, enjoy special treats, and eventually even plan fun family days.
