My Thoughts On Twitter 4/8/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Human nature: does everything against the Creator’s direct desire, bestows, contrary to the nature of egoism, in which one was made by the Creator. Independent from others, from the environment. He feels the others and therefore can take care of them. Feels the past and the future.
From Twitter, 4/8/19

Complaints Against A Teacher

laitman_600.04Question: Why does it happen that at a certain stage your beloved teacher does not seem so beloved anymore? Moreover, it seems that he manipulates you and says things that you want to criticize over and over.

Answer: That is natural. A student does not advance without having complaints and criticisms in regard to the teacher. Advancement occurs on two sides: the left and the right, where on one hand you have criticism, and on the other hand, forceful justification.

Therefore, if a critical attitude to the teacher arises in you, it means that you now need to add from the other side, in spite of your opinion, the opinion of others, and in spite of the rejection and even hatred toward the teacher that suddenly might emerge in you. You need to rise above it in faith above reason, to the state where you continue to hold onto him.

It requires tremendous effort from the student. And if you already are in it, congratulations. This work does not end even when you enter the spiritual world at the first spiritual attainment—it continues even on higher degrees.

To the extent that you suddenly feel rejection from your friends in the group, realizing that a completely irrational hatred toward them arises in you, the same irrational hatred and not just a critical attitude will emerge in you toward the teacher. You will need to overcome it through faith above reason.

Spiritual Screen And Money

laitman_232.06Comment: In our world, money determines and controls everything.

My Comment: In the spiritual world, money also controls everything.

“Money,” in Hebrew “Kesef,” comes from the word “Kisuf,” which means “covering.” In Hebrew the names of objects and phenomena are given for a reason and come from the content, the properties from which they derive.

To the extent that you can cover egoism with the quality of bestowal and love, the egoistic quality of reception turns into the quality of bestowal. This is how you earn spiritual capital, that is, reveal the Light.

Therefore, the spiritual screen is also called “Kisuf” (“Kesef”), as is money in everyday life. Of course, people do not know where it came from, but Hebrew is a Kabbalistic language.

The Only Opportunity To Reveal The Creator

laitman_947Question: If everything inside and outside of me are parts of the system that controls me, then why precisely through the connection with the friends can I control myself and the system?

Answer: It is because they go together with you to search for this connection. Take any friends in the group and try to connect with them.

We all are different, no one orders particular friends for himself. Connect with those in the group.

We all are in a single system and are designed in advance to suit each other. Therefore, we are assembled this way from above. We have some spiritual potential within us. The upper light through its influence pulls us to the revelation of the Creator.

Question: Is it easier to feel this in the Kabbalistic environment?

Answer: It is not just easier. It is the only opportunity.

New Life #203 – The Family Unit In Crisis

New Life #203 – The Family Unit in Crisis
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

The nuclear family is in turmoil and often breaks up. Despite what children need, it is very difficult to maintain a family for long these days. Parents, children, and siblings are all increasingly detached and isolated. At the end of thousands of years we have reached the point where we want to be alone. But what did we gain from it? I have everything of my own, but I’m unhappy. A new space is revealed. With the help of integral education, we can stop the trend of deterioration and build a new family.
