My Thoughts On Twitter 6/19/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

If one’s intentions are for the Creator, one must behave the same in states of perfection and imperfection, being in agreement, as if one is in perfection. If one’s behavior differs, it means there are Klipot and one must pray for their elimination (Rabash-3, The Land that…)

If a spiritual descent takes place to extend a spiritual ascent, it is considered an ascent rather than a descent. A descent is also an ascent since all its elements are filled by light. In a small descent, there is little bitterness—and little light is drawn (BS. Letter 25)

Baal HaSulam. Preface to TES, 100: Before the upper light is revealed to a person, the more efforts he makes to reveal it, the more distant it appears to him. But this distancing is a way to summon him to make all the required efforts to reveal the upper light, the Creator.

The more extreme are the disagreements between groups of people, the more assured they are that they are right, and the greater they are in number—the higher they will rise above themselves if they exert to unite above their convictions for the sake of one common goal to attain the degree from which Nature’s upper force governs them.

Example of mutual guarantee:
The ten rides in a wagon down a bumpy road. There is a bucket full of water in the middle of the wagon. Each person is responsible for his wheel, keeping vigil that it won’t cause the water to spill from the bucket.
That is, each one eliminates the COMMON disturbances, preserving the COMMON equilibrium.

Open A New Perception Of Reality

laitman_961.2There are three components in perception of reality: the Creator, the friends, and me. The Creator is dressed in the friends and I want to relate myself to them. This is called: “Israel, the Torah, and the Creator are one.”

It all depends on what is considered illusory and what is reality. A child listens to how I tell him or her a fairy tale and perceives everything as the real reality, imagining how Little Red Riding Hood walks in the woods and meets the wolf. The child can cry or laugh, he lives it. For me, this is just fiction, a fairy tale. Everything depends on the level that we perceive what is happening.

We exist in an illusory, imaginary world. It is obvious that our feelings are the reactions of our five senses, which cannot be considered objective. If we received other senses, we would perceive a different reality and live in it. It is all a matter of conventions, consensuses between us. There is no truth in this world because there is no indicator against which it could be evaluated.

We must tune each other to a more truthful perception of the world, living according to the law of love for one’s neighbor and constantly improving. We can then gradually enter it. In this work there is a preparatory period when a person does not realize how he passes from degree to degree. Later he must start working consciously. I think it is already possible to do this in order to finish the holiday of Shavuot by taking a real half-step forward.

There is a network of connections between us that we do not feel. Yet, we must tune into them with the help of the principle “Love your neighbor as yourself.” This is the law of a new reality, a new way of thinking, a new desire, and new relationships.

A Kabbalist lives in two worlds, in two states simultaneously. Now I decide that together with the friends I will enter such a system of relations. There is nothing else, and only through this system I now look at the world, at reality, beginning to adapt to this new world through these new senses called “ten Sefirot.”

This world is an illusion we are born into. We seem to live in this world as if in a dream. Soon it will be revealed to us that all past life was a dream, a complete fantasy. Every time we move from our egoistic perception to bestowal, a new reality is revealed to us, such major changes that it seems to us that there can be no more than that.

In bestowal, such spaces open up that we could not even dream of. I become included in my friends and through merging with them I enter a new reality, as if in a magical dream.1

We cannot look back—this is the law. A new reality is opening up based on our inclusion in the friends, and there is nothing more. We have to aspire only toward it. The world is revealed through connection—these are new senses, a new reality, before which you must annul yourself, and then you will enter it.

Each of us was born and educated with an egoistic perception of reality. This is how we were calibrated, like a tool with many regulators. Now I myself, thanks to the internal awakening I have received, want to calibrate myself to a different perception of reality, which can only be done with the help of my efforts, the group, the teacher, and the Creator.2

The Evolution Of Desires

laitman_738Question: Is desire the foundation of nature?

Answer: Yes. There is only one substance called desire and nothing else.

Question: According to Kabbalah, there are different levels of desires. We are built so that we see the desires of the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human levels outside of ourselves. Therefore, as a result, we see inanimate and vegetative nature, animals, and people. If we were built differently, would we see a completely different picture of the world?

Answer: Yes, it depends on our desires. If we were at a lower level of desires, we would find ourselves chasing mammoths, etc. It all depends on the evolution of desires.

Question: How many levels of desires do animals have?

Answer: They operate according to the same system we do because these are our desires, only on lower levels.

Remark: But they sense us even though they do not have human desires.

My Comment: Here again we have a question: do they exist by themselves or only in our imagination? After all, everything exists only with respect to one person; there is nothing else beside him. Everything else is what exists inside of him and what he sees outside of himself.

Question: What is the reason that we do not feel this?

Answer: Kabbalists gradually discover the reality we are talking about now and they describe it. Other people do not feel it because they have not reached this level. The development of a person with the help of Kabbalah leads to the fact that he begins to see the true reality in which nothing except him exists in the general white Light.

Question: That means that no one is better or worse. There is just evolution, a program set by nature. There are people who began to attain this reality a few thousand years ago and explained that there is no world outside of us. Are there those who are still in this process and will attain this in another thousand years?

Answer: Yes. This indicates that there are desires in a person that have reached their correction and the correct revelation of reality and there are desires that have not been revealed yet and have not reached the correct sensation of reality, and therefore, they present themselves to a person in the form of external people who do not yet understand this and do not agree with this.

Remark: I understand that a desire operates according to two principles: the first is the preservation of the current form, the second is attaching to itself everything that is presented to it.

My Comment: Any desire is initially egoistic; it wants to preserve itself and as much as possible bring everything it considers useful closer to itself.

Remark: Therefore, as Kabbalah says, our whole life is a search for fulfillment. Nature created desires in us and we are searching for where their fulfillment is because we cannot really fill ourselves.

My Comment: We are filled and will be filled in the form of reason, in the form of impressions, and in the form of changes, until our impressions and changes lead us to the vision of the true reality where there is nothing but our desire in which all these fluctuations occur.

We will work only to expand this desire as much as possible and thus feel in it an absolutely complete filling called the world of infinity.

New Life #12 – The Key To Success

New Life #12 – The Key to Success
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi

Two forces manage the world, giving and receiving. We use more of the power of reception and this leads to an imbalance in all natural systems. In order to build a safer, healthier, cost-effective society, humanity needs to balance its use of the power of receiving with the power of bestowal. The goal of human development is that everyone will reach connection with all of nature and become like one, unified family. When we achieve balance and connection, we come to know nature and we gain purpose in life. We feel ourselves as an integral part of the whole and eternal system.
