My Thoughts On Twitter 7/25/19

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

A nation is a group of people united by an instinctive sense of community and striving for connection, as those born from the same parents. #Jews have no such feeling! Instead, there is a feeling of “brothers in misfortune” from the hatred toward them. Striving toward connection vanquishes hatred…

There is a blood connection between people, familial—corporeal. And there is a spiritual link between the souls. It is born in the connection between people for the sake of revealing the Creator. When it’s broken, people become strangers. They can be united only by the common hatred—#Antisemitism

Abraham revealed the Creator at the age of 40, and called upon all Babylon with it. Hundreds of thousands joined him and were called the “House of Abraham.” This is the beginning of a nation that knew the Creator. (Rambam. Yad Hasaka. Ilkhot Avoda Zarah, p1, 7-16)
This is how the #Jewish nation was formed.

All our attempts to change the world for the better (replacing our food, energy, technologies, finances…) will fail. The world will continue plunging downwards, until after many failures and much suffering, we will realize that it’s not the world around us that we must change, but only our relationships—and we set out to re-educate ourselves.

Can You Be Anti-Semitic If You Don’t Know What Jews Are? (Quora)

Michael Laitman, On Quora:Can you be anti-Semitic if you don’t know what Jews are?

Yes. I can be an anti-Semite even if I don’t know what a Jew is, because I feel, without any intellectual grasp of what I feel, but I simply feel that my happiness, the world’s peace and my advancement in life depend on the Jews. I feel that this small nation of 15 or so million people runs and manipulates the world, squeezing out its juices and energies, preventing human society from enjoying a good life. That is a subconscious sensation of every person in the world. Also, if one doesn’t feel that way, then it can awaken very quickly, since it lies latent within every person.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 4/9/19

Laitman_630.2Question: Why don’t we have love?

Answer: We have love, but it is only for ourselves. Therefore, we don’t have any other love because only one of the two can exist. As it is said, there is no empty place in the heart, either it is filled with myself or it is filled with the Creator.

Question: Is the activation of the first Tzimtzum (restriction) already an act of free choice?

Answer: Yes.

Question: How is it possible in a group to achieve a sensation of the spiritual inanimate level in which you feel that the Creator completely manages everything?

Answer: You must always think about it, trying to feel it physically in yourself, and helping each other in this. It requires strong dedication and introspection.

Question: Why can’t we acquire Rabash’s unbridled courage in dissemination?

Answer: Rabash had a desperate courage. He taught young men who, in their situations, were the complete opposite of Rabash’s environment in Bnei Brak. It is difficult to imagine what he was compelled to hear and feel.

Question: If the friends in a ten cannot participate in daily meetings, is it preferable to participate in such meetings with friends from other tens of the world group or should I concentrate on work in my ten?

Answer: It is possible to integrate with other tens also if you are unable to be with your friends.

Question: In the past, you said that it was more difficult for you than it is for us, your students, to advance. Will it be easier for students in another five to ten years to progress than it is for us?

Answer: Certainly, it will be easier for the next generations to advance than for us. This doesn’t mean that it will be more pleasant for them, but it will be easier because there will be a greater recognition of evil.

Question: How can I change from thoughts about myself to thoughts about the friends?

Answer: I have to constantly think about it, trying to do it all the time, working through my efforts.

Question: Is there such a concept as a “spiritual conscience”? Otherwise, where is the clarification of “truth and falsehood” implemented?

Answer: You can call it a conscience, even though I don’t like materialistic definitions that much. Clarification is carried out on yourself when you try to connect with the friends in a neutral situation outside of yourself and outside of them. You search for a state like this together,  and within it you implement the clarification.

Question: We learn that prayer is given from above. If we try to pray artificially and mechanically, is it possible to call such an activity “prayer” or is this preparation for prayer?

Answer: This is a true prayer. However, it would be preferable for us to organize it in a group among ourselves. What they give from above is what they are simply teaching us. Suddenly, I yearn to ask the Creator. What this means is that He has given me such a desire Himself.

New Life #425 – Security And The Israeli Spirit

New Life #425 – Security and the Israeli Spirit
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

The Israeli people are the only ones who can lead the world toward peace and harmony because we alone have the force of giving. If the Israeli nation were connected “as one man with one heart,” a special force of nature would pass through us and bring peace and connection to the whole world. When we connect, Hamas will fall and anti-Semitism will subside. War awakens this eternal connection; however, it is a pity to wait for blows to connect us. We have to establish the connection proactively, by ourselves, as part of our daily routine. The wisdom of Kabbalah is a scientific method that teaches us about the whole map of reality and how to build a model of connection to improve the lives of everyone.
