Global economic growth is coming to a halt.
This is Nature’s way of forcing us to understand its law:
just as its still – vegetative – animate parts consume only the necessary, so man must act IN SPITE OF HIS EGO. Instead of excess in this world, he’ll reveal the eternal upper world.
American Psychological Association: Masculinity, domination and aggression are harmful to society, leading to loss of contact with the environment.
Kabbalah: nothing in nature is harmful or useful. Everything is determined by a balance of forces.
Hence society must be brought up to aspire to unity.
The world’s rulers consider the global order to be the only one.
Trump is ruining their future, rejecting their ideology, “the world is for the rich.” Hence they need to get rid of him.
And #Trump wishes to break them. He’s for simple Americans.
The fiercer he is attacked, the stronger he is toward the next election!

The inner Light and the surrounding Light influence us in opposite ways. The inner Light gives us the feeling of the present day, and the surrounding Light gives us the feeling of the future. And in this way, we exist between these two opposing influences.
You must be able to use them. After all, if I feel bad today, this may be for the better in the future, and vice versa, if today I feel good, then in the future it can lead to bad consequences. How can you connect “from good to evil” and “from evil to good,” “from today to tomorrow” and “from tomorrow to today?” We can succeed if we know how to work with AHP of Aliya (Awzen, Hotem, Peh of on the rise).
Raising the AHP and turning it into action, we equalize today with tomorrow. And then there will no evil either today or tomorrow. After all, the desires according to which we separate today from tomorrow are corrected by the Light and filled with it. It turns out that we find ourselves in a world full of Light, in the glow of the Light both day and night, as it is written: “Darkness will shine as Light.”
This opportunity is provided for us by Tzimtzum Bet (Second Restriction). Thanks to it, we find ourselves in the system of opposing Lights: internal and surrounding. And due to the AHP on the rise, we can turn the darkness into a permanent Light.1

When a person studies Kabbalah, his desires are constantly growing. But this is only for the purpose of giving him the left line, raising in him a corrupted desire to enjoy so that he has something to overcome and something to turn to the Creator with. We need a depth of desire (Aviut) over which we can build the screen and the reflected Light.
We tell the Creator with the reflected Light: “Although You gave us the desire to enjoy, we are building the desire to bestow upon it by restriction, the screen, and the reflected Light. And all this is done with the help of the Light returning to the source called the Torah. The Creator clothes in these corrections in the form of the direct Light, and the Creator merges with the creation.1
We must bring our broken soul to the Creator, but first we need to reveal it. The Creator knows that He broke it and prepared everything, but we need to make this discovery, called the realization of evil. We want to unite in order to reveal the Creator between us and we cannot do it because we are broken. It is necessary to bring this broken vessel of the soul to Him and let Him glue it together! And when He corrects the vessel, He clothes in it.
We must come with this vessel and ask for its correction like a small child in tears would bring his mother a broken plate. There is nothing more to reveal in this world: there was one complete soul and the Creator shattered it. Now we need to detect this shattering and ask Him to correct it and then fill it. There are two kinds of actions that we must evoke: correction and filling.2
The heart is a desire that is initially corrupt, black. As it is written: “For the inclination of man’s heart is evil from his youth.” Therefore, it is necessary to correct it to bestowal so that it loves one’s neighbor. Instead of loving itself, the heart will love others. According to the extent to which a person manages to go outside of himself toward his friends and connect with them by building a common Kli with them, the Creator can clothe in them. This is called a corrected heart.
The heart of one person cannot be corrected. But if a ten is united in their hearts, becoming as one person with one heart, in this way they build their spiritual Kli. In one person there can be no spiritual Kli; you need at least two, and best of all, ten.
It seems to us that it is more difficult to connect ten people than two. But this is not the case. After all, the upper Light comes to the ten in a special format. And if it is less than ten, then it is called: “Why have I come and there is no man,” because it is the ten that is called a Man.
However, even less than ten still draw the Light to themselves but not one because a man alone has no connection with the Light at all.3
We do not yet feel that our egoistic desires are standing between us. We just do not touch each other, we pass by as if we are not connected in any way. This is still far from building a common Kli. The common Kli is built based on the fact that we feel a collision, and above it, a connection. After all, the Creator created the vessel of the soul and broke it. And we need to reveal this shattering, the gap between us, and the way we can reduce this gap by being included in each other. Despite our unwillingness to unite, we nevertheless coerce ourselves to get closer and closer, and then there is a coupling with the help of the Light that reforms.4
The revelation of the Creator to the creatures in this world occurs when within a physical Kabbalistic group, in the union of the hearts, the power of mutual bestowal, the power of faith, the power of Bina, the power of the reflected Light in which the upper force is clothed, the Creator, the illumination of Hochma dressed in the Light of Hassadim is revealed.5

New Life 1073 – Evolving From Nationalism To Humanism In Israel, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Israeli nationalism is intended to bring forth love of the whole world. If we succeed in connecting among each other, we will have the power to connect all parts of reality. Subconsciously, we feel that we have a method for bringing the world to perfection but are not realizing it. Since the destruction of the Temple, we have had a big ego, a desire to swindle others, and to succeed at their expense. At our foundation, we were a gathering of 70 nations of the world and only the spiritual force of love connected us. We were strangers gathered in unity around Abraham until an anti-spiritual force developed hatred, destruction, and the impulse to exploit others.
Today, Israelis experience an internal pressure and feel like they could explode since each one has 70 different roots. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches us that it is up to us to bring love to the whole world. Only the attainment of the upper Light will relax us. This upper Light is a higher energy that exists in the world and embraces all parts of creation as one.
