My Thoughts On Twitter 2/11/19

If one accepts faith above reason, even without joy, submitting to Malchut, one agrees with this state that this is apparently the Creator’s desire. Hence one does not care about inspiration since he does not care about himself or about benefit
… but only about benefit for the Creator—he is in complete submission.

In the beginning of each degree, one must accept the Creator’s rule anew. By that he fills part of the desire unfilled by the Creator with the Creator’s rule, transfers ego to holiness, and so on—until all egoism is transferred to the Creator’s rule.
Believing that each time, his action is new!

Globalists create fake information, placing the interests of an abstract humanity united by tolerance above the interests of people and nations.
Kabbalists likewise see the future as a united humanity, but as a result of upbringing, united by revelation of the Creator.

If one really wishes to go by faith above reason, he doesn’t wish to see the good governance clearly since “seeing is not believing.” Rather than asking to feel the good governance, he asks for the force of faith, as though seeing the Creator’s good governance with reason …
… so there will be no difference between faith and reason.

One who goes toward faith, bestowal, must understand that he is being treated in a special way from above:
-he is lowered in order to think about the goal, what is wanted of him, and what he wants for the Creator to give him;
-he is raised—when there is no need to care for spirituality, but he wishes to remain in it.
It turns out, descents produce an ascent!

What I think is Me is not me. What I think is the friends—that is the real me. The distorted perception doesn’t let me see that the real me is the ten, in which the Creator dwells. I am given a perception of seeing myself alone—so I could correct it and magnify it 620-fold.

Joy testifies to faith in the Creator’s good governance, despite any state one is in. He’s happy. And the degree of joy testifies to the degree of his faith. He is not in himself, but in the Creator—not in his desire, but in the Creator’s desire—and is therefore always in joy

Understanding The Creator’s Rule

laitman_622.01Question: Why is perceiving evil a denial of the Creator’s rule rather than acceptance of His governance as evil? If He rules, what is the reason I feel evil?

Answer: That is not the point. It is not important to the Creator or even to yourself what and how you feel. The main thing is that if you perceive the upper governance as evil, you do not have the right understanding of it. For that you must be in equivalence of form with the upper governance.

Now you are like a little child who is forced to do something by his parents and he thinks that they are evil. How would you advise him to act? You would tell him: “You have to understand that they want what is best for you. If they treat you “well,” it really would be bad for you.”

We need to understand the Creator’s rule. Then we will see the world correctly and reveal why He acts this way. We turn on the TV, open a newspaper, get on the Internet, and get a barrage of news and gossip…

We cannot make sense of it, but all of it is the governance of the Creator. If we could see the whole picture, we would understand how He manages all of humanity and how we can help Him with it, like a child who wants to understand what his parents want from him.

No Agreement, No Group

laitman_528.02Rabash, Writings of Rabash, the article “The Agenda of the Assembly 2”: This is similar to what is written in the Midrash (Vayikra Rabba, Chapter 4): “Two people went inside a boat. One of them began to drill beneath him making a hole in the boat. He told him, ‘Why are you drilling?’ And he replied, ‘Why should you care; I am drilling under me, not under you?’ So he replied, ‘You fool! Both of us will drown together with the boat!’”

You should always take into account what you are doing for the group—a positive or a negative action that can be measured only in relation to the assembly.

The order should be that anyone with a suggestion that can improve the love of friends, it should be discussed, but it must be accepted by all the friends, so there is no issue of coercion here.

The discussion should be very clear, precise, and comprehensive so that everyone agrees and accepts it for implementation. It cannot be otherwise. If there is no consent, there is no group.

Question: In the inner work, I can visualize it. But how can such a state arise externally so that everyone agrees with the decision made by the group?

Answer: This is what internal work is about. You connect ten elements that will become a system where the Creator will reveal Himself. If at least one element disagrees, then this is as Rabash writes: “a hole in the boat.”

New Life #138 – Social Networking in the Next Generation
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

In the future, the Internet will fill us with life, pleasure, and joy through integral education. It will teach people how to create a balanced, internal, human network through open, direct, cooperative, supportive, mutual, and intimate relationships. It will show people who they are, what they enjoy, in what sense they are free, and how they can fulfill themselves. Workshops, games, news sites, and quality programming will be used to build human connection. Today, people feel empty and frustrated since the Internet does not supply energy or vitality. In the next generation, 7 billion people will tear down all the borders and connect to the online network like to Mother Nature.
