My Thoughts On Twitter 3/26/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Egoism will never agree with the fact that it is the Jews’ own fault that others abuse us. The religious people also won’t agree with it. Only those who understand the structure and program of the universe can understand what is happening in the world, the root of #antiSemitism
…. and recognize that unity of #Jews is the solution to the world’s problems.

#Jews hate those studying authentic #Kabbalah more than non-Jews since it obligates Jews to correct #egoism. This hatred for Kabbalists is natural, instinctive—just as non-Jews feel repelled by Jews. By correcting our attitude to Kabbalah, we will eradicate #antiSemitism.

I write about unity of #Jews so they will be liberated of #hatred. Our war isn’t against anti-Semites, but against the Creator, who called us His children and then rejected us since we have separated from Him. We shouldn’t fight the #Antisemites, but the egoism that separates us.
Then the world will calm down.
#antiSemitism #egoism

Always remember that the Creator’s goal is to fulfill the creatures. If objections arise, an opportunity arises to work for the sake of the Creator. Rather than seeing the objections as harmful, see them instead as making room for efforts—place them into bestowing intentions until a Kli for receiving light appears.

A person doesn’t reach adhesion with the Creator in his first attempt, but through many rejections, in order for him to develop the desire for connection with the Creator, suffering that turns into pleasure.
The Creator counts his efforts until he reaches the necessary strain for the adhesion.(Baal HaSulam, Letter 19)

The essence of our efforts to reveal the Creator is to link everything that happens to us to the Creator. One who fails to do this, it is as if he rejects all the worlds created for the revelation of the Creator to man.
Therefore, it is necessary to see only the actions of the Creator in everything that happens. (Baal HaSulam. Letter 18)

Until a person reaches the first degree of revelation (the first similarity with the Creator), his learning and connection with the group worsen his condition, his concealment: this way the Creator wants to draw him to Himself in order to accelerate his efforts.

The most difficult in spiritual work (to reveal the connection with the Creator in similarity) is the first contact with Him (Baal HaSulam. One Commandment).
Therefore, what we are studying now in our lessons is so important and
one must not simply repeat but re-experience the lessons several times.

The balance of forces is the basic principle of nature. Thus, the flap of a butterfly’s wings causes a reaction on the other side of the world. This principle calls for only using what is necessary for survival.
Otherwise, we are stirring up the forces for restoring the balance by destroying the excess.

Real Life Begins Only In The Ten

laitman_962.1As a result of the descent of the worlds, our desire to enjoy is getting increasingly remote from the Creator, passing through restrictions, filters, splits, and various concealments along this path. Having reached this world, the desire to enjoy finds itself behind five worlds (Olamot)—concealments (Alamot), that is, in the worst condition.

This world, which is mentioned in Kabbalistic books, is the lowest of all possible spiritual states, and our corporeal world is even lower.

The desire to enjoy descends the steps of all the worlds and reaches a state in which it materializes, turns into matter; it loses all connection with the upper worlds. Therefore, it does not matter in which material, animal body a person who wants to attain the spiritual world exists. His arm or leg can be amputated or an organ from another person absolutely remote from spirituality can be transplanted in him, but this would have no effect on his spiritual attainment.

One might wonder how you can lose your right hand if, according to spiritual laws, it relates to bestowal and you always have to start from the right side. However, our body is a simple animal, absolutely unrelated to spiritual attainment. Of course, it has its own important function because it is given to us so that we can begin our spiritual development by expressing our own desire to attain the Creator.

Love cannot be forced. Otherwise, it would not be called love but “calculation.” Therefore, the Creator could not create us with a ready desire to love Him. That is why we were forced to descend to this world completely detached from the spiritual system and to begin the way back from this point.

Existing in an animal body now in our own world, isolated from all spiritual worlds and from the Creator, we must begin to develop our own desire to love the Creator as He loves us. If a person has a point in the heart that awakens him to this, then he can feel that someone is calling him and begin his journey back to the Creator.1

The ten is the basis of the universe’s structure, as a cell of the organism that is the source of life. We do not understand that by entering the ten we open the gates to the upper world. Then, we see that our present state is imaginary, existing only in order to provide us with the opportunity to enter spirituality on our own, by our own choice. We must want to develop and become equal to the Creator by ourselves. All previous corporeal life will lose its meaning.

Everything produced by our hands, feet, and mouth, actually does not exist. We live in an imaginary world. Our real life begins only in the ten and beyond, and this is what remains with us forever. So, let’s decide whether we want it or not.2

Spiritual Energy Does Not Disappear

laitman_294.1Question: Is the energy released during the loss of strength or with the emptiness we experience during the descent used somewhere?

Answer: Definitely.

Question: Does the law of conservation of energy apply in this case?

Answer: Absolutely. Moreover, in our world, this law almost does not work. We do not know where everything disappears, we just make assumptions that this is how it happens in nature. Actually, all energy vanishes, goes into black holes, etc.

However, in the spiritual world, nothing disappears because there is a clear connection between Malchut and Keter. Everything happens within these ten emanations. It is an absolutely enclosed system.

Question: Does that mean that all my efforts to get out of descent, all my energy invested there, does not disappear?

Answer: Do not worry, everything finds its place, address, and justification.

New Life #181 – Leadership, Part 2

New Life #181 – Leadership, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary
The first government in history was founded by Moses in the desert. What qualities characterize a leader and how can Israeli society become one family in the spirit of Moses’ leadership?

An Israeli king is chosen according to his ability to lead others toward love, connection, and sharing. Each leader is concerned with how his tribe can complete its part in the general system. He asks the question, “How can we help everyone?” Representatives help the “people of the power” who “fear God” to build a transparent, integral, education system. A healthy head that functions according to the laws of nature must be formed. The leader knows what the next step is in order to create stronger connection.
