My Thoughts On Twitter 2/12/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

The ten works like a pump: having fallen into a new ego phase, one can’t free himself, but the ten works on him. This is group work, not an individual job. Everyone individually awakens the ten to the work. Or, the Creator takes pity on him, but this is not a spiritual ascent.

Fear is the sensation in the desire to receive pleasure, while awe is the feeling in the desire to bestow. Therefore, one has to maximally exalt the greatness and significance of the group and the Creator, so that this became the driving force, pulling forward …
…. not the fear pushing one from behind.

The proper help to the friend in descent is to descend to his condition and gradually rise with him, using the opportunity to turn his descent into ascent. And the friend will rise because he partook in the guarantee and invested his efforts into becoming one with the ten.

If I break away from the ten, it means that I break away from the Creator. And if I think that I’m still connected to the Creator, then it is not the Creator, but His opposite; as it is said: “It is not Me whom you called upon, Jacob” (Lo oti karata, Yaakov).

If everything comes from the Creator, the Good Who does good, except whom there is none else and no-one can stop Him from delighting all creatures, then what could be bad? It is only that I, like a rotten child, don’t see that the parents do everything for my benefit …
…. yet the world seems bad to me.

I am willing to keep the connection with the Creator, but through the group, and it is constantly interrupted. Therefore, I am in fear of losing my soul, the Kli, the ten.
What if I suddenly fall and the stream washes me away and the group is unable to save me?
Or they won’t be able to dig me up and get me out of my selfish prison?

Trust that the Creator is engaged in everything concerning a person’s development and guides him to the goal all the time. Rejoice that the Creator fosters you in both—descents and ascents, that everything is for your growth. Always act as if in an ascent.

After all, the fall leads to adhesion with the Creator. This is how the Creator is pulling a person to Himself.

The difference between fear and trepidation?
If I act out of fear about myself, my ego—it is fear.
If out of a desire to bestow to the Creator, without thinking about myself, it is called awe.
Fear is where my ego is, for my sake. Fear is a result of the lack of faith.
Awe is where it is for the sake of the Creator.

It’s fine if I feel confused, like a child who doesn’t understand what they want from him. But I’m not going to perceive the spiritual with my feelings and mind. This confusion and helplessness are given to me as help from above, so that I stick to the Creator …
… and by doing so open a new channel of perception.

If one falls below the level at which he thinks he should be, he gets the strength to fight the descent and is forced to increase the Greatness of the Creator within—until he understands that it is the obstacles that create the place for the revelation of the Creator’s light.
The sinner prepares, and the righteous will clothe. Obstacles are the Kli of the light.

By trying to jump over the desire to enjoy (receive pleasure) to the desire to bestow (delight), i.e., to attribute all the events to the Creator, we resemble chicks learning to fly: they jump, trying to fly. In the end, they succeed, and begin to float in the air …
… whereas we strive for adhesion.

If you don’t enjoy thinking of the Creator, then you don’t feel His greatness.
If thoughts of His greatness don’t help, ask the Creator to open your heart, to experience His greatness. Regret that you don’t feel His greatness.
Rejoice that you suffer from the lack of the spiritual. After all, it is the Creator who desires so.

The path of faith above reason means not to reckon with feelings and knowledge. To trust that the Creator governs everything determines my states and sensations exactly as He wants them. But the feeling doesn’t matter to me; I desire to delight the Creator.
By doing so, I exist in perfection and get closer to Him.

The Book of Zohar about 3 fears: for life in this world, for the next world, and failure to reach adhesion with the Creator for His sake. In descent, we fall to fear 1 and have to rise to fear 2 and 3—with the help of the ten, like a prisoner from his confinement.
Animal fear transforms into trepidation to underestimate the Creator’s value within the group.

Material fear is indicative of the lack of awe. If my fear is related to the Creator—awe—there is no place for the earthly fear, for I will raise it to the spiritual level. What matters is why I act—to withdraw from the earthly fear or enjoy it as an incentive to attain awe.

Fear only the fact that you may stop thinking about the Creator, that
1. There is none else besides Him
2. He is good Who does good,
that you will fall into the sensation of this world as the only one,
that you will neglect the Creator, instead of appreciating Him,
…. that you will detach yourself from the ten and forget about the friends.

Imagine that you have attained faith in the Creator, the sensation that the Creator governs everything as Good Who Does good. And seeing the opposite, one should go above reason, as if he feels Goodness. Thus, one acquires the importance of the goal, and a life …
i.e., the joy of drawing closer to the Creator. Then one has the strength and the place to exalt Him.

I Want To Meet The Creator!

laitman_565.01Question: Is there a difference between the fact that a person senses evil and understands that it comes from the Creator and that he simply senses evil without blaming the Creator?

Answer: The difference is great. If I want to get closer to the Creator, to comprehend Him, to reveal the secret of my life—in what form I existed before birth and in what form I will exist after I part with the bodily shell—then of course, the Creator interests me. This is the source of my existence in all metamorphoses.

Therefore, I am interested to get to know Him, to acquire His qualities, to see myself in all worlds, in all states. It allows me to exist. Currently, I do not exist. The Book of Zohar calls our existence a dream far from reality.

So I wish not to remain in this state. I want to really understand where I am, that I can change and see the true world and not the world as it now seems to me.

Arvut: The Law Of The Common Soul

laitman_963.6Arvut (Mutual Guarantee) is the law of the system of the common soul and all of nature. It is a single vessel whose parts are separated by their egoism and are brought back to unity through their desire to bestow. Due to the difference between the separating desire to enjoy and the connecting desire to bestow, the gap between these two tendencies is what allows creation to receive all the goodness from the Creator and exist.

The only problem is with a person who is intentionally created to violate the law of Arvut, the law of simple unity. Human aspiration is the opposite of unity, the Creator, and connection, and that is why a person feels existence in a reality called “this world,” in suffering and lowliness. The whole world is setup to bring the person to the realization of his evil nature and to the revelation of the goodness of the global, integral nature of unity.

Our purpose is to reveal unity to the point of attaining the root of this connection, the single force of the Creator, which is all that exists.

The Creator created the evil inclination, and the righteous, who want to justify the Creator, return the entire system to good through requests and prayers. They request adhesion with the Creator, and are thus called “righteous”; they justify creation because the Light is perceived only from darkness.

It is impossible to comprehend the good from good; it cannot be perceived. The created beings can only feel contrasting qualities. Therefore, the Creator’s creation of the evil inclination was a great gift to us. It was a double gift: the opportunity to reveal the good and to ask for it to be realized in us.

There are many ways to reach the Creator. There are secular people, religious people, Israel, and 70 nations of the world. And in the people of Israel there are 70 roots as an imprint of the 70 nations. By working to unite the people of Israel, we push and obligate all humanity toward connection. By uniting the people of Israel and correcting the roots of the nations of the world, we correct the whole world.

Therefore, first the law of Arvut must be realized by the people of Israel. After that it will spread to the rest of the nations and turn all humanity into a single nation as it was in the ancient Babylon before the mixing of the languages.

Arvut is the law of nature. We gradually realize that everything depends on following this law and that the whole Torah is dedicated to carrying out the law of Arvut. Therefore, only by agreeing to execute the law of mutual guarantee do we receive the Torah. All the commandments are the Creator’s rules to achieve Arvut. We hope that the people of Israel will come to understand this and that the whole world will follow.1

The heart is a desire covered with an egoistic shell. Therefore, we need to rub our hearts to peel off this shell and reveal the net desire on which we can receive the intention to bestow.2

New Life #139 – The Future Of Influence And Leadership

New Life #139 – The Future of Influence and Leadership
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz


Control will be based on the understanding of nature. People no longer aspire to gain money, power, knowledge, and information. Younger generations lack the desire to get married, have a family, and raise children. Today, humanity feels like a child who has been forgotten all alone at home. It has totally lost its way and feels empty. The public is going mad and losing control as demonstrated by unemployment, terrorism, and riots. We no longer look to philosophers, politicians, scientists, and heads of state for direction and leadership. Our internal nature isn’t leading us forward anymore. It is becoming clear that we don’t understand who we are, where we are living, and what the general plan is. We have come to a halt. We need a new paradigm based on the laws of nature. Nature is a closed system of bestowal and feedback. We need to study nature in order to learn the right attitude toward society, economics, family, and ecology. We have to reveal the goal of nature regarding human connection. Whoever wishes to be influential must lead humanity toward correction and mutual connection. This is the business of the future. The media can play a vital role in the integral education of every individual. The people who teach this new, integral approach to life will soon be perceived as the dearest and most respected people in the world.
