The crisis of the neoliberal ideological model cannot be resolved! For it doesn’t answer the most important question of human life: “What do we live for?”
What this world has to offer is no longer sufficient. Our needs have outgrown material possessions.
Mankind has reached the ideological impasse …
When you begin to value the Creator’s attitude, you will see that He manifests humility: “Wherever you reveal the greatness of the Creator, you reveal His #humility.” There’s nothing greater than humility—it is a reaction to the Ohr Makif of the Creator, the highest degree, that the upper one rules with love, subjugates before you like a baby.
By humbling myself, when I’m criticized on all sides, I subdue my ego and make space for the Creator, letting Him rule. Humbling, unlike conceding, is seeing the opportunity to subjugate yourself and doing so joyfully, allowing for extra space for the Creator.
(#Zohar lesson, 3/8/19)
Over the last 200 years the standard of living was determined by the growth in labor production. Today, however, regardless of the path the world leaders are choosing, all lead to cataclysms, as there are no more growth stimuli. Egoism has collapsed!
The next stage must be an altruistic growth.
Gradually, it becomes clear to the members of our group that our way of life is necessary for all of humanity. There is no predetermined number of years of study, but the fulfillment of your life with the states of constant advancement of your personal revelations.
Everything that exists, good and evil, has the right to exist, is forbidden to be destroyed, and is intended only to be corrected for the good and to reveal the perfection of the Creator. Therefore beware of even saying that something is unnecessary.
For it humiliates the Creator. (Baal HaSulam, “Peace in the World”)
From Twitter, 3/10/19
If any part of the world is not running perfectly, it is a sign that there is a fault in me. The end of correction should be implemented in practice in the world we are living in now. Intentions to bestow, proper distribution, good relations—all this must be realized here. Everyone will be concerned with fulfilling everyone else. This will become their work, their biggest desire. The intention must be united with the action. Love will guide a person and will compel one’s desire to become like the desire of the Creator.
This is hard to believe, but it will happen. According to the program of creation, the upper Light must descend through all the worlds to the lowest point and turn the entire creation into the world of infinity. Not a single part can be left uncorrected and not turned into bestowal. As the prophets wrote: “The wolf shall dwell with the lamb…,” that is how it will be. Two opposites will peacefully coexist together.
All the spiritual worlds and the corporeal world will reach complete correction. That is, I must reach such a mutual connection with all people so that the Creator will be revealed between us, and from the unity within Israel, the connection will spread to all other nations. And from all of humanity, such a connection will extend to all animals, then to plants, and finally to the inanimate nature.
Everything will then become balanced. At the moment, every level of nature is out of balance because of the human influence. The world will reach full correction, complete harmony, where everyone fulfills everyone and becomes included in each other. It follows that even the smallest particle, a tiny insect, that is integrated within people, contains all the worlds.
The lowest point, the center of all creation, is called the point of this world, the final border of descent of all the worlds. At the end of correction, this world acquires the same amount of importance as the world of Atzilut. However, we are not talking about the imaginary corporeal forms that we see now: plants, trees, and animals. We are talking about the forces behind them, concepts. All these concepts will be elevated to the level of bestowal.
We live in an imaginary world because this is how the spiritual forces are revealed to us. Therefore, we need not correct corporeal forms, but when we correct the spiritual Kelim, this world changes, and all its parts penetrate each other, unite. In fact, the wolf will live peacefully next to the lamb, and everything will be united into one whole, one HaVaYaH.1
From the 3rd part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 3/3/19, “Building The Future Society”
1 Minute 5:35
Question: Why does it seem that when we start studying Kabbalah we no longer have common interests with our former friends, and our social life fades away?
Answer: When a person begins to practice Kabbalah, it is as if he breaks away from his ordinary earthly affairs. He unwittingly works, unwillingly lives in the family, and unwillingly exists because he is captivated by this science , which talks about the eternal, perfection, and the soul, and this makes a much more profound impression than one’s material life.
But gradually this sensation disappears, and he balances his perception of ordinary life with his impressions of spiritual life. This must be experienced.
Naturally, you will not have much in common with your former friends because their interests are at the level of our world, and yours are at the level of the upper world. Therefore, the group that you organize to study Kabbalah will represent the most important society for you.

New Life #167 – The Wedding Ritual
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
A wedding unites, integrates, and connects a couple, their families, and their communities. It is a social union. Guests come to strengthen the connection between the bride and groom who make a mutual promise to become one.
