My Thoughts On Twitter 2/4/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Since every person-nation-country undergoes unique changes, unity among them is possible only if it’s built above their qualities and changes—in the quality of bestowal to others, from oneself and for the sake of the common goal. Otherwise there won’t be any union.
This is what we see in the modern world.
#israel #election

Being enslaved by egoism/Pharaoh, I can’t sign a union with the Creator, I am not free. But I can exit the Pharaoh’s power and become the Creator’s slave. My will: whose power to choose. The transition under the Creator’s authority occurs by signing a union…
Myself – the Group – the Creator.

The union is the connection between my I and the Creator. It is achieved through unification with the friends. In the center of the ten the connection with the Creator is revealed: I (Isra El) – the Torah – the Creator are one. Unification is called the Union …
… and it determines each spiritual state.

Bnei Baruch @Kabbalahinfo is a link between the Creator and humanity. This is our mission. Hence our ascents and descents can’t affect the process of correction, our individual states. We must ensure the Creator’s connection to the nation of Israel and all creatures. This is our role.

The Creator is the upper force and He clothes in the form of the whole creation.
I am positioned between the Creator and creation. I must absorb desires of all the creatures and fill them with the Creator’s light. Hence I perceive creation as my own soul ….
… which I must bring to adhesion with the Creator.

Understanding one’s mission alleviates despair and gives patience to teach people. I am fulfilling a mission and I won’t back down. The Creator sets up various states for me, but I perceive everything as help to keep moving and I’m not impressed by results.
I am fulfilling the role, “Anything but leave.”

Isra-El (the role fulfilled by Bnei Baruch) has no other obligation in the world besides bringing the creatures closer to the Creator, serving as a conduit between them. In this state they shouldn’t experience any turbulence—only constant fulfillment of their mission …
… similar to taking care of a baby.

System of 10 Sefirot:
—its top part: Keter-Hochma rules
—its lower part: desire of ZA-Malchut rules
In the center of Bina —WE connect both parts. Hence we must be:
—filled with the Creator’s aspiration to delight the creatures
—filled with concern so the creatures will want this.

If we look deeper, we will see that there is no nation of Israel or nations of the world—it’s the Creator’s game with us from two sides: the Creator from above and the Creator from below in the form of the nations of the world. So “There’s none else besides the Creator.”
I am between two forces as a point connecting them. My task is to unite everything in the Creator.

“I awaken the dawn”—when I awaken the need for bestowal, the light of Hassadim, darkness dissipates. It’s dark if I see emptiness in my desire for pleasure. But it doesn’t matter to me what condition I am in, if only to be in bestowal, in the light of Hassadim
… so long as it pleases the Creator.

If a person aims at the Creator, all of his fears and doubts come from the Creator Himself, and only in order for the person to turn to Him with a request to find cover under His wing (screen).

Exactly when you’re experiencing darkness, there’s no need to overcome the desire for pleasure—there’s nothing, nothing left to enjoy! The Creator gave the opportunity called “darkness”—when I feel nothing, want nothing, value nothing.
It is in this state that it is easiest for me to ask for desires to bestow.

Before coming closer to the friends and the Creator, we feel forces rejecting connection. But by correcting them with a plea to the Creator and upper light, their actions of separation transform to the act of convergence, and upon their opposite acts …
… light is revealed instead of darkness and love instead of hatred.

All states come from the Creator; hence, I am happy and grateful for them
Then I feel that this isn’t darkness at all, but an opportunity to bestow.
My bestowal lies in that I don’t demand anything besides the smallest point of unity with the Creator, and no more.

Slowing #economic growth is the law of #social development. It cannot be prevented and leads to political upheavals.
But it is possible to prepare society for new relationships:
1. rational consumption
2. proper connection of people and education at the #workplace.

The State Of Katnut

laitman_283.02The sin of Adam at the tree of knowledge did not affect the state of Katnut (smallness) that was already corrected before the shattering. Therefore, the upper part of the worlds of BYA, created at the birth of Adam, did not break. It turns out that the upper system around us is more corrected than us who are inside of it. Nature is more corrected than the human.

However, a person has a more elevated task: to become independent, to become a person similar to the Creator. Nature does not have such lofty goals since it consists of desires of bestowal; it is corrected.

This is what we see in our world. If it were not for people spoiling nature, it would act according to its perfect laws, which do not have any freedom of choice. This is what eventually helps us reach correction in both our world and the spiritual world.

The inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature are corrected, and only the inner system called “man” is what corrupts them. The inner part is shattered and it projects all its corruption on the external system, on  inanimate matter, plants, and animals. When we correct ourselves, then obviously the whole world will be corrected.1

All inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature are corrected. If there were no human, the wolf would live peacefully alongside the lamb. Yet, since the human corrupted everything with his shattering, the wolf devours the lamb. It is all because of man. Without him, there are only bestowing desires in nature and the wolf can walk next to the lamb as if in the Garden of Eden, and a little child can lead them (that is, a man in the state of smallness).

After the final correction, even a grown-up man who attained the Creator will only be in bestowal in relation to others, and therefore, he will be called “a little child.”2

Answers To Your Questions, Part 232

laitman_281.02Question: What is the qualitative component of a request?

Answer: It is the feeling of aversion of egoism as the enemy.

Question: What is this phenomenon that a person in our times suddenly begins to speak Hebrew fluently without knowing the meaning of the words and even with rhymes? Where in the Torah is it possible to find similar cases? Does this surprise you?

Answer: No, I have encountered this phenomenon. It is the manifestation of the upper Light in him. Incidentally, I haven’t been able to master Hebrew for 50 years now.

Question: Is it possible to relate the degree of fear to not harm connection with a friend to the greatness of the fear of the Creator?

Answer: It is the same thing!

New Life #1083 – Living In The Present

New Life #1083 – Living in the Present
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches that there is no past or future, only the present. These days, people measure the value of the past and the future according to the level of importance they attribute based on their will to enjoy. We think about what matters to us. In order to achieve full contact with reality and with the upper force, we need to work in order to connect with each other in groups of ten. When each member of the group wants to fulfill the desires of the others, a new reality above time and place is revealed. We begin to understand why the world exists and the role of humans within it. Each one begins to feel like a baby in his mother’s lap and all he wants to do is to connect to the upper system that is the source of all life.
