World Kabbalah Convention 2019
Details and registration >>>>>>>>
#telaviv #conference #convention #kabbalah #israel #international #happiness #meaning #unity

The Creator’s plan is for everyone to become one nation. At first only single individuals understood this. In the generation of strife, people began gathering to work for the Creator under Abraham’s guidance. Abraham walked around and called upon people …
… until he gathered a large community, “the Nation of Israel.” But the full correction lies in the unity of all!

The transition from one spiritual state to the next feels confusing, since we leave the old Kli, but the new one hasn’t formed yet. Together we can go through them easier, even though they confuse us, take us out of balance. We must get used to the transitions …
… how to cope with them, and understand the friends.

On February 19-21, I invite you to the World Kabbalah convention —a celebration of unity and joy!
You will be greeted by friends! The whole world will meet you at the convention. And you will understand the meaning of confidence, safety, and true happiness!
We await you! #telaviv

Two phases of our development:
1. from animals to egoistic civilizations, egoism’s development;
2. into a spiritual community, the Soul, development of altruism, from Adam over 6,000 years until full equivalence (revelation) of the Creator, by the method that Abraham revealed ….
… to all humanity in Ancient Babylon.

There’s no personal calculation with each person, but each one is evaluated only by his participation in correcting the single system of the Soul. The aim of its development is to attain the Creator. We gradually attain the Creator to the extent of similarity of our connection…
…. between us and Him, as written, “You made Me.”

Request For The Future

Laitman_043Question: How can one ask correctly? Is it a practical action?

Answer: The correct request is not the words that I say. To ask correctly means to create within yourself an image of the correct request, which means the state I am now in and the state I would like to be in.

The difference between these states is my request. I ask for a change in me so that I will move from the present state to the future one.

Why do I ask for myself? Isn’t this egoism? The fact is that Kabbalah speaks about this kind of request because the entire world is within me. If I change myself, I change the world.

As we study in the perception of reality, everything I feel outside of me is a projection of what I depict inside of me. Outside of me there is only the upper light, onto which I project my inner qualities.

Therefore, all people and inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature, and the entire universe in general are a projection of my inner qualities. The first, second, third, and fourth stages within me are projected onto the white light, and this is what I feel as “our world.” Therefore, I ask for my correction and thus, I correct the world.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 234

Laitman_508.1Question: In one of the morning lessons, I heard you say that it is forbidden to imagine that the Creator exists outside of our senses and that the Creator is beyond feelings like joy and suffering.

The question is: Will I be able to acquire the property of bestowal even if I assume that the Creator is someone who experiences His own joy even outside of my senses, and if I strive to become someone who bestows in order to provide the Creator (or His essence) this joy?

Answer: The main thing is to fulfill the advice of the Kabbalists, and the right sensations and understanding will gradually come when over time, new perceptions will be created in you.

New Life #147 – The Journey to the Root, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

From the times of Ancient Babylon when the ego erupted and competition, consumerism, and separation began, the corrective method of Abraham was introduced. Egoism causes us to want everything for ourselves and exploit others for our own benefit. This egoistic power of reception has exhausted itself and has brought all of humanity to a dead end. While religions introduced by Abraham helped people to connect in order to have a better life, the true power of bestowal is only discovered in the effort to connect above the ego. Unfounded hatred is discovered and new life, based on the principle “Love covers all transgressions” (Proverbs 10:12) is built. The secret power of life is the ability to control these two forces: reception and bestowal. The world is now like Babylon again except that there is nowhere else to get away from one another. Today, Israeli society must restore its spiritual roots and lead the whole world to correction.
