Is It Possible To Accurately Predict The Future?

laitman_222Question: To what extent does perception and comprehension of spiritual timeless roots allow us to see the future within the framework of the material world?

Answer: I cannot say that there is an exact correspondence between the spiritual and the material and that one could foresee the future. The future depends on many parameters that are beyond your desire; in particular, from many specific people and factors.

Therefore, it is impossible to accurately predict the future. You can tell which way it flows, but what state it will take at each moment in time, you do not know.

What Does It Mean To Carry Out Commandments?

laitman_938.03Question: What does it mean to carry out commandments?

Answer: Carrying out commandments means carrying out the conditions of our interconnectedness, the connection between us.

Being connected to each other in the single system of Adam is a commandment.

Although this system consists of egoistic desires, by building altruistic connections between its parts, it becomes similar to the Creator, the quality of bestowal, which is revealed precisely in it to the extent that it becomes giving—first on the zero egoistic level, then on the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth levels. Then the Creator appears in the form of the light of Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Haya, and Yechida.

New Life #235 – Happiness And Limits

New Life #235 – Happiness and Limits
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary:

Our entire perception is a way of reaching boundaries. Without borders we cannot feel who we are. At any given moment, restrictions are pressing on me. If I learn how to improve myself, I will not feel pressure. Happiness will be achieved when I learn how to be in balance and reciprocity with those around me. Human nature is the desire to enjoy and everything that happens to me is nature’s way of developing me. I may suffer if my neighbor makes a noise but I would probably have a different attitude if I had the same love for my neighbor as I have for my own children. Ideally, we become like one big family and no longer need boundaries between us. When we learn how to be bound up with others, we feel as though we are wrapped in grace and love like a fetus in his mother’s womb and gain infinite happiness.
