Joy is a testament to bestowal, faith in the Creator’s greatness. And although there are no obvious reasons to be joyful, one believes that he receives everything only from the Creator and is hence in joy, to the extent of his faith in the Creator’s good governance of the world.
At first one sees fulfillment as the goal and result of his efforts, but afterwards, when he gains awareness of the process of correction, he sees everything in the reverse manner—that precisely the yearning for the Creator is his true fulfillment, which brings him joy!
The desire to reveal the Creator is determined by the importance of maintaining joy in the group from its spiritual work and the goal. This determines the sensation of perfection (Shlemut), which determines the degree of equivalence and of the Creator’s revelation to man.
One must be joyful at all times—due to the fact that he has received, from the Creator, a yearning for Him and considers this the most important thing. Being aware of the joy creates the Kli to receive the Creator’s revelation and attain adhesion.
The nation of Israel is timeless, but the state exists only if Jews engage in unity. Hence throughout 3,500 years, we have existed as a state for 75 and 66 years. Now we exist on the condition that we create ourselves as a nation and state. If we succeed—we will continue, and if we don’t—we will drift apart once again…
Every nation has its traditions, but the nation of #Israel‘s traditions correspond to 125 spiritual degrees, which the broken souls must transverse as they reunite to attain the goal of creation—full correction.
Hence these aren’t traditions from the past, but signs of the #future correction.
Jews as a nation are disunited. Only the nations’ hatred holds them together, like nuts in a sack. Likewise, non-Jews wishing to create a group for revealing the Creator, by uniting their points in the heart and studying Kabbalah—reveal reciprocal rejection, egoism, as Jews do.
“Jew” derives from the word “la’avor“— one crossing from the egoistic existence to the altruistic sensation of the Creator, the upper governing force that one can engage. Anyone can, who has such a desire. The others await being lifted to this condition.
This is why they subconsciously feel their dependency on the #Jews.
#Antisemitism is impossible to correct! But if you correct the #Jews, make them authentic Jews, who aspire for “Love your neighbor,” then anti-Semitism will cease to exist and anti-Semites themselves will turn into Jews. After all, a true Jew is not a nationality but one who incites love of others!
Outside the spiritual path, #Jews are worse than the others because the breaking and evil manifest in them to a greater extent. This is why they succeed in our egoistic world. Yet, by exerting efforts to unite that draw the upper light, they become better than others—the light to the nations.
The level called Man (Adam) requires bonding with others, unlike the animal level, where a more advanced feels more isolated. At the animal level, separation seems as acquiring independence, while at the level of Adam it is cancellation of self and allowing others to depend on you that produce independence!
Orientalist Dr. Guy Bechor has accused liberal American #Jewish #democrats of the increasing #Antisemitism in the United States.They inspire provocations against Trump and Israel. And despite their hate for #Israel, they will flee to it from the hatred they create.
I completely agree with Dr. Behor!
All the nations have to embrace unity and love of neighbor as the foundation of the society. And this is what is called true religion. But beyond this, every nation can practice its own customs, and no-one has the right to impede their doing so. (Baal HaSulam, The Last Generation)

Answer: The fact is that in reality there are a lot more planets in the universe. Kabbalah predicted them long ago.
In particular, The Book of Zohar writes a lot about it in different places. I was not interested in it. Although, as a child, I studied astronomy, as soon as I got close to Kabbalah, the spiritual consequences of our world stopped being of interest to me.
Question: The Torah writes: “And the planets appeared in the sky… .” What is it talking about?
Answer: The Torah does not write about the physical planets but about spiritual forces. The Earth, the Sun, and the Moon are all spiritual forces and not what we can see and observe. Although we do compile the earthly calendar, one must clearly understand where it refers to the spiritual roots and where about their consequences.

Answer: We consider life as good according to what is good for us.
In our time, however, having uncorrected connections between ourselves, we cannot feel good. We see that the world is falling apart because the upper light descending upon it wants to fill it and the world feels its oppositeness to this light.
The closer spiritual goodness is to our world, the worse we feel. The nearing of the upper light gives us a sense of darkness because we are uncorrected, opposite to it. Therefore, if we want to feel the blessings and all the goodness, we must change ourselves to be similar to the upper light so we do not plunge into problems and crises because the light is coming closer and closer to us. In other words, we have to unite on the level of this world. That is the problem.
For example, the news announces that an asteroid is on its course to Earth and that the planet is in danger, people should feel themselves in danger, the upper light is coming closer to us, the Creator wishes to be revealed to the creations. This is why we are called “the last generation.”
We have entered a path of increasingly escalating pressure on us. This is why the science of Kabbalah has become revealed; it explains that we have to start adapting ourselves to the upper light to become somewhat similar to it.
We are a Kli (vessel of the soul), the Creator is the light. We can become similar to Him only if we unite between ourselves. In other words, if we wish for a better future, we must unite.

New Life #1092 – Family Values in Israel
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
Israel was originally created by strangers who gathered around Abraham and connected through the value of love. They built a society like a family in which each one felt that he is in a warm, secure, embracing place of refuge from outside pressures. This internal, spiritual connection is much stronger than the sense of belonging experienced in a family. It is eternal and binds us into a single soul. It embodies the feeling of harmony, wholeness, and abundance in nature.
