My Thoughts On Twitter 4/11/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Malchut of the world of infinity feels shame from fulfillment. It performs Tzimtzum Aleph and attains the desire to bestow to the Creator. It then returns to reception of pleasures prepared for it, but this time does so with the intention “for the Creator’s sake” and hence without shame, with pride.

Nothing disappears in the world, only the more important picture is replaced with a less important one. If the Creator becomes more important than self, one forgets to think about himself and annuls before the Creator, all worries about himself disappear, and he enters pure bestowal.

Only by feeling one’s emptiness does one aspire to be filled by the Creator’s greatness and gains the force to not think about reception and attainment, but only about the opportunity of wholeheartedly, unrequitedly bestowing to the Creator. And this fulfills him completely.

At first, a man thinks that the upper world is “somewhere out there,” above or beyond the death of the body. And only upon considering the attainment of reality, he realizes that “everything is in him”—and if he replaces his desire to “receive” with the desire to “give,” he will begin to feel the upper world.

When egoism re-emerges and distracts you from the Creator, remember that these disturbances are from the Creator in order to strengthen your connection with Him—and ask Him to replace egoism with bestowal.

A Friend Is My Mirror

laitman_235Question: How can I help a friend with his problems if they are provoked in him by the Creator?

Answer: And how can I not help a friend if the Creator, by causing the problems, is showing them to me through my friend?

If I see my friend having problems, it means that the Creator demonstrates them so that I can solve them.

In no case should I leave it unattended, knowing that the Creator is communicating with me through everything that is happening to me. He created a desire in me and in this desire He now triggers certain signals. I have to read these signals of my own desire and react to them.

Respond to the Creator through the friends, through the group, through the entire world group, through all of humanity, because it is all but one soul. This is all my conversation with the Creator.

The Degrees Of A Kabbalist

laitman_567.04Question: What can a Kabbalist on the final degree do that a Kabbalist on a mid or lower degree cannot?

Answer: Bestow. Everything is evaluated and measured only by the ability to bestow. The greater the egoism of a person, the greater his or her bestowal, and thus, the greater the degree. In this manner, one reveals more of the upper world, the Creator, and his own state on the Creator’s degree.

Question: How do I determine the power of my egoism?

Answer: For now, you cannot measure the power of your egoism. You can determine it only if we exist in three lines: right, left, and middle. We will then receive an opportunity to measure one side with respect to the other, and the spiritual degrees will emerge accordingly. This is the dimension of egoism.

The Duality Of The Upper World

laitman_944Question: How can I unite my desire with the group’s desire when I want to hide even the smallest degree of the Creator’s greatness as a personal attainment? It is too personal for me to share.

Answer: The best way to progress is to leave all your desires, everything you have, only take strength from it, enter the group, and try to turn to the Creator through it. Take all the aspirations of the friends from the group as if you are an adult and they are small children.

This is what you need to gather from them and then appeal to the Creator with a request to protect them, raise them, direct them to think correctly so that they feel how they should be interconnected, how they should rise in a common connection in order to create a Kli (vessel)—a place for the Creator to be revealed. This should all be in order to give Him contentment, and at the same time you should also be content by giving Him pleasure.

We always move in two levels: egoism and connection above it, unification, and gladness in order to please the Creator. We must clearly work on these two levels.

You will then feel how you emerge into the duality of the upper world where both the corpuscular and the wave theory of light work. That is, light is perceived as waves or particles depending on whether you observe the electrons passing through.

You will see that in reality, it is all one in the spiritual world. Only our egoism divides it into different levels. Therefore, in every level we get different opinions, desires, combinations, everything that kills our world, but this is precisely so that in the next, higher level, we will perceive perfection.

New Life 206 – The Role Of The Parent, Part 2

New Life 206 – The Role Of The Parent, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

How can we use our family as a training ground for building good relationships with outsiders? What values should prevail at home? Also, what is the power of personal example? Developing the ability to communicate with others will ensure success in life because today’s world is connected. The art of building a family bond anywhere guarantees success in the interconnected world.
