My Thoughts On Twitter 1/20/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Today we will gather for Unity Day with my students from the whole world.
We will have a lesson, workshop, and will sing songs to melt each other’s hearts, connect them into one, single whole and attain the state “as one man with one heart.” We await everyone!

The Fed is raising rates, causing capital outflow from developing countries, rise in debt, and slowing global economic growth in Turkey, India, Chile, Philippines, Egypt, Nigeria, Columbia, Argentina, China, and Brazil
The global economic crisis is starting at the outskirts of humanity.

Periods of mankind’s development replace one another: the liberal order is declining and the conservative period is emerging.
It’s time to agree that society requires correction, only then followed by independent existence—upbringing about the need to unite in spite of our ego

How Does The Middle Line Appear?

laitman_232.06Question: What should a person do if he is overwhelmed with feelings but wants to remain in a practical neutral point and continue to work scrupulously with the group and with the Creator?

Answer: He should collect all his positive and negative thoughts, qualities, and actions and understand that the middle line is built on their correct combination. In fact, it does not exist. It appears only if a person builds and supports it, otherwise, it immediately disappears.

There are only plus and minus in the creation. Between them you must create such a resistance, a pressure, a motor that would work from these two poles.

Question: The group is a tool leading to the Creator. There also is the quality of bestowal that we call “the Creator.” It is clear how to work with a group. But how should we work with the Creator? Is there some kind of interconnection, relationship system?

Answer: If friends in the group correctly connect with each other, then in its inner strength, in the correct combinations, there will be that place where the quality of the Creator is revealed.

The quality of the Creator is interesting in the fact that relative to us, He is revealed as perfection, consisting simultaneously of both plus and minus. We will be able to understand this only when He is revealed.

Question: Is this the reason you say that there is the nature of a person, on which we should not apply pressure, but just build bridges of love above it and these states exist together? Is this the revelation of the Creator?

Answer: This is the middle line since both forces emanate from Him.

What Does It Mean To Do Something Against The Creator?

Laitman_507.05Question: To do something against the Creator, does this mean against His desire to please the created beings?

Answer: You could say this, or you could say that you disagree with His oneness. He exists, and you exist. This is where a split occurs into absolute atheists who assert that no one exists except man and people who say that there is no one but the highest power, and between them is everything else. Man himself does not really comprehend where he is in it. All religions and beliefs are concentrated between these two points.

Kabbalah says that we exist unconsciously.

As humankind developed, it was considered that only we exist, and the Creator is a purely psychological picture. But now we are gradually coming to the need to reveal the Creator, to comprehend and reach Him.

New Life #132 – Mass Media, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

The mass media could transmit a soccer game on TV according to the integral approach and teach all the viewers about the value of unity and connection. The killing of soccer fans in stadiums indicates that we have reached the edge of human development based on egoistic competition. Marx realized that our capitalistic society based on egoistic consumerism would ultimately lead us to dissatisfaction and despair. He predicted that humanity would turn toward cooperation and full connection between everyone. The American god is collapsing as human desire changes and we increasingly ask ourselves questions regarding the meaning of life. Where is our happiness beyond a proper standard of living? When the inclination is toward connection, there can be no hatred between the fans at all. The players will educate the viewers by modelling how to nullify the self and serve the group. The role of the coach will be to educate the team members to be as one, integral unit. The commentators in the studio could speak about mutual understanding, connection, coordination, and interpersonal harmony. Nature is pushing us to find unlimited happiness and satisfaction in the connections between us, and the mass media has an important role to play in our evolution.
