My Thoughts On Twitter 3/4/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

The commandment that surely leads to intention for the Creator, Lishma, is to work for oneself to the extent that it is necessary, and beyond that for the sake of the society, to bring it closer to the Creator.
Actions and intentions for their sake bring us to the intention for the Creator. (Baal HaSulam, “One Commandment”)

Ecological #society: everyone gets what they need. Society cares about a decent standard of living for everyone. #Education helps us not to receive more. Egoism is corrected by the group attracting the Light that Reforms.
All the fulfillment beyond what is needed on the animal level is spiritual. Nature is pushing us toward it!

A single force propels nations to unite among themselves and with itself. If we don’t do it of our own accord, then the external forces will oblige us to unite, like a bag full of nuts, by applying hatred, pressure, and wars. All the forces in the world are aimed at uniting those who aspire toward the Creator and connect with Him through them.

All of the creatures’ qualities and behavior are attained by Kabbalists as coming from upper spiritual roots. Although it is impossible to describe their qualities and behavior in the upper roots, it is possible to describe their qualities and behavior in the language of branches of our world.

Liberalism developed in the EU due to a powerful middle class of consumers.
But the ego raised their children into weak, irresponsible, demanding paupers.
The destitute liberals will be consumed by conservative reproducing migrants.
Hence conservatism and nationalism will awaken in EU
#EU #Liberals #europe #migrants #nationalism

Although the Creator rules over everything, when He is concealed, it seems as if the evil forces overpower us and there is no chance to break free from the delusion, although in your mind you understand that everything comes from His goodness.
Nevertheless, efforts to affirm that “There’s none else besides Him” lead to revelation.
(Baal HaSulam, “Letter 1”)

Since the goal of creation is to bring all of nature to equivalence (adhesion) with the Creator, the goal of life is hence for Kabbalists to draw the light of correction Ohr Makif to the nation of Israel, and through them to all humanity, with the intention of fulfilling the Creator’s will (for the Creator’s sake).

On the earthly degree we are programmed in every way, since desire, the basis of matter, is controlled by hormones. #Oxytocin controls man’s #social and emotional behavior, the quality of spouses’ relationships, the motherly sense, trust in people, the #happiness #hormone ….
,…. and social attachment.

One Big Flame

laitman_214.01According to the desire of the upper force, all people must unite into one spiritual body. That is how we were initially created and then broken so that we would restore our connection through our own searches, efforts, and mutual help. Because of this, we will understand our place in the common system, the exact connection of the pieces of this puzzle, the scattered Lego pieces, and all the advantages of this connection.

If there were no breakage and no necessity to restore the connection, we would be able to feel only primitive existence, the smallest Light on the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels. We would, however, be unable to reach the level of man, Adam, similar to the Creator, the upper force, eternal and perfect.

We must therefore go through a very complex process of development. At first, only the chosen few were able to comprehend the idea of unity and correction in the twenty generations that followed Adam, the first man who revealed the upper force nearly 6,000 years ago, to Abraham. Abraham already started forming groups, tens that overcame their egoism. Today, we continue to work on our connection with the same methodology.

In essence, Abraham started building the human society, a special nation in which everyone is connected. They wanted to reveal the Creator, the upper force within their unity, that would fulfill them and lead them toward complete mutual understanding with the Creator.

We also aspire to reveal the upper force in order to understand what is happening: what does the Creator want from us and what do we want from Him. The final correction of the shattering is that all the people of the world, all of humanity, will be united into a single group.

If even a few groups unite this way, all the others will join in through them. The Creator will complete this work; the main thing for us is to start this connection, like the catalyst for a chemical reaction. We live in an integral system, so if one group can achieve the integral connection, this force will affect everyone and everybody will unite and reveal the Creator, and reach the end of correction.

We participate in workshops, scrutinizing questions in the tens. The most important thing is not to be smart, but to aim toward connection. The work in the tens consists of absorbing the desires, questions, and feelings of each friend sitting across from me. It doesn’t matter how well we understand the answer to the question, the main thing is to expand our spiritual perception, our Kli, by absorbing all the thoughts from our friends.

I do not criticize them, I want to take in all their thoughts and desires, absorb them into myself. That is how I expand my Kli and become suitable for filling it with the upper Light. This is how we expand everybody’s Kli, build a more complex common desire, and eventually reach similarity with the upper Light, and become one whole. Having reached the minimal connection, we can reveal the weakest Light, Nefesh, but we already somewhat begin to feel the Creator, eternity and perfection, the upper Light.

Like a nearsighted man who upon removing his glasses sees blurry contours of people, so do we come to reveal the upper world, at least in its general outlines.1

Triangle: Me – Group – Creator

laitman_938.03Question: What should we feel first: the desire (lack) of the Creator or the desire of a friend?

Answer: It can be both. We must come to adhesion with the Creator, that is, to complete connection with the quality of bestowal. This can be achieved only through the group.

Therefore, you must first fully connect with the ten. This can only be done if you demand that the Creator gives you the quality of connection, the quality of mercy (Hassadim), so that He will influence you with surrounding Light (Ohr Makif) with the help of which you can unite with your friends.

You use the Creator to unite with your friends and you do it in order to adhere to the Creator. This is a constant triangle.

Therefore, you must act in both ways. That is, use the ten in order to achieve adhesion with the Creator, to give Him pleasure, to work for Him; and on the other hand, unite within the ten. In order to do this, you need to turn to the Creator so that you have the power to unite with the ten. You must constantly spin in this triangle.

The most important thing is to come “from the love of friends to the love of the Creator.” Therefore, use the Creator to achieve love of friends, and from them, from the highest point that can be achieved, the union called love, when you are included into one desire and one intention, you will be directed toward the Creator together as one whole.

New Life #161 – The Evil Nature Of Gossip, Part 1

New Life #161 – The Evil Nature of Gossip, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Gossip produces harms our relationships and pollutes the entire social system. It makes us feel better about ourselves, but it is destructive. Even a negative thought about someone else is very harmful. We do not know how to use the human ego for the better and are therefore like snakes that want to bite. We are evolving toward a dark, evil climax that will help us understand the change that is required if we wish to live in balance, harmony, and completion. We need to correct the ego through mutual human love, care, and connection.
