The wisdom of Kabbalah says that we understand in sensations, the heart understands. If we begin to feel and empathize with what is written in the The Study of the Ten Sefirot, then our desire will begin to correct itself toward bestowal, which the book tells us about. The ten Sefirot of direct light will dress into the ten Sefirot of reflected light. The ten Sefirot of direct light is the attitude of the Creator toward me and the ten Sefirot of reflected light is my attitude toward the Creator. These relationships are built on equal footing: The Creator always treats us in the same measure that we can respond to Him.
What is lacking is a little more of the greatness of the Creator, which must be obtained from the environment in order to progress. This is how we need to continue all the time: to receive more and more of the greatness of the Creator from the environment, from the ten, in order to connect more and more with the Creator. Again and again, even more greatness of the Creator from the same environment, even stronger connection with the Creator in the ten. We begin to feel that it spins like a typhoon, and all the desires of the world are brought into the ten, where I, the Creator, and the ten are together.1
The uniqueness of the modern generation is that it does not know: “How to reach pleasure, where it actually is, and why it does not exist in our world?” The further we progress, the more the desire to enjoy grows, but there is no fulfillment. This development is intended to bring us to the next level of fulfillment: not with food, sex, money, honor and knowledge, but to the spiritual values that give us a sense of an eternal world, infinite and unlimited fulfillment.
The modern generation is moving toward this goal, and therefore it cannot find fulfillment in the material world and turns to drugs and despair. No matter how much they try to fulfill themselves with all sorts of false values, emptiness is revealed as a result, because it is impossible to fool yourself forever. It turns out that a person either becomes a real drug addict or turns his whole life into a drug, not letting himself think about what is most important, that is, why am I living? One just mindlessly goes through the motions, like everyone else, following the lead of advertising, fake news, not giving oneself time to think.
A person does not know where to buy such a pill that could fulfill this new surfacing desire. After all, we are in the last generation that should already reveal the Creator.2

New Life #166 – Prominent Women in the Bible, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
A woman of valor is like the great Mother Earth since she is wise and knows how to transform raw power into life. The Bible demonstrates how women can clothe themselves in many images. Esther uses trickery for corrective purposes behind the scenes. Abigail directs David through her connection with nature. Hannah prays for a peaceful home and expresses thanksgiving to the higher power. A woman can identify evil and compel a man to transcend it. A man of valor or an Adam can only come out from a woman.

In general, humility is evident when a person tries to see only the actions of the Creator in everything, especially in the actions of those who accuse him. And even though he is aware that “There’s none else besides Him,” he can’t relate everything to Him in the moment.
(Baal HaSulam, Letter 1)
The Creator made egoism such that a man is unable to overcome it, but having no strength left he still has to try and ask the Creator for help, and in his inability to conquer his ego with the force of the Creator, and appreciate His help and might, like a child next to his father!
In the near future we’ll get to see just how dis-unified the Jewish people can be, in the point above/below egoism. If not for the anti-Semites, the #Jews would destroy themselves: in the name of God, unity, or ego. That already occurred during the 1st and 2nd Temples.
“Those for the Creator—join us!”
If the power, opposite to #egoism, is manifested in the world, it leads to revelation of the Creator, to unity, to Communism and is called Isra-El, Straight-Creator, through the correction of the Soul broken with egoism.
This is the difference of the people of #Israel from all the nations of the world, for everyone has a desire toward the Creator.
The scandal in the US #Democratic party, where many #Jews act as anti-Semites, causes confusion about what is happening with the Jews, their behavior seems absurd. But that is not so. The reason for this is that there are two forces in each one of us: the ego and its reverse side. Usually, it is the ego that gets manifested (nations of the world).
#politics #antisemitism #Liberals
There is not a person in the world who doesn’t possess these two forces. For they come from the breakage of a single Soul, when the forces of reception and bestowal interconnected. Therefore, they always exist side by side.
In ancient Babylon people became aware of “the point in the heart,” the desire to unite above the egoism of the heart to reveal the Creator. But if the ego of the heart rules over that point, the enemy of unity appears in the person—an anti-Semite. These two forces in everyone complement and nourish each other.
The greater the person, the bigger is his ego. So don’t blame yourself for your bad qualities—they come from the Creator, and are corrected by Him as well. Don’t regret your “sins,” they stem from the Creator, as it’s said: “I created the ego”…worry about the insufficient prayer about correcting yourself.
Kabbalah La’am newspaper #39 came out, which is published in #Hebrew. You will find interesting articles there: how to solve the issue of #AntiSemitism taking over the world; how we can learn to love, not hate, articles about March 8th and #Purim.
#Democracy does not create the basis for economic #prosperity in the world any more than authoritarian regimes. The reason is that the development of egoism in democracy has no limits and has become hyper-exaggerated, when egoism devours itself and no longer serves as the engine of progress.
Connection is a feeling of mutual dependence, a feeling that I depend entirely on others: on their success, achievements, health, on everything. Like in the family. This is how our desire works in its simplest, primitive form.
