18 Years After ​​9/11 : What Will Really Prevent The Next Disaster?

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 9/11/19

The signs of solidarity, mutual respect and social resilience that we saw after the horrible 9/11 attack in New York, have all disappeared. Today it is painfully clear that people unite only under great duress or trouble. It has been fifteen years since that tragedy, and against the backdrop of global terror, the United States is more frightened than ever of another national disaster. As a result, the government has declared September as a National Preparedness Month, where citizens, business owners and communities are encouraged to prepare for any unexpected crisis or emergency that the US might face. Yet alongside the defense strategies, the one thing that will bring lasting security and balance to our lives is unity. The connection between us has a tremendous power that can prevent any unexpected disaster, and most importantly, to guarantee our good life.

World Kabbalah Conference In Chisinau, Moldova

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 9/11/19

We have returned to Israel from the World Kabbalah Conference held in Chisinau, Moldova. The conference brought together some 1,500 of my Russian speaking students. It is a great joy that the Creator gathered us to such a wonderful assembly. We achieved more from the conference than I expected. And now on we will move forward together, in one heart. I wish you all to be loved and desired by the Creator!

For all the conference classes

Love Is The Fulfillment Of Others’ Desires

Laitman_138Question: Why do Kabbalists constantly use the word “love”?

Answer: Our matter and the matter of all nature is desire. Love is mutual satisfaction, when I satisfy your desires and you satisfy mine, and only thanks to this state do our pluses and minuses become connected, and we turn into one single spiritual body, into one single desire.

Question: If instead of “love,” I say “the force of attraction,” is this correct?

Answer: Say “the force of gravity, unity, or connection.”

Remark: After all, the phrases “love of one’s neighbor” and “love your neighbor as yourself” are so overused and confuse us so much.

My Comment: I understand. I remember I also stumbled on this. Now I cannot imagine some carnal attraction as a synonym for love. After all, these are animal instincts.

Question: The method of Kabbalah consists of establishing the correct connection between people. Through this, as Baal HaSulam writes, we invoke energy from the states we were previously in. The energy begins to affect us and bring us together in the same way that molecules once came together. Only their rapprochement was unconscious, and we must do everything consciously.

What is this action of drawing closer to other people? What should we do?

Answer: We should perceive the desires of other people and try to fill them, and they must do the same with your desires.

Perhaps, we will somehow be able to feel the desires of others, although it is very difficult. We have no idea how to actually do this. If we want to fill them, we will begin to feel how much our egoism counteracts this. We will then have to fight with ourselves, put ourselves below others, and this is already a spiritual action.

Question: How will I fulfill the desires of others if I cannot even fill my own desires?

Answer: You do not have to. Leave your desires alone and fill others’. Then you will see that only in this way you can fill yourself.

Question: But they have a lot of desires, won’t I only be busy filling them all day long.

Answer: It means you will be busy filling yourself all day. Only through others can you fill yourself. That is why humanity is becoming more and more devastated.

Remark: Yes, but I do not feel that way. I do not enjoy filling them. Only if I love someone, then, yes.

My Comment: Therefore, you must demand that you have love for them. This is already above your egoism.

Uniqueness Of The Creator, Part 8

laitman_744What is Perception of Reality Made of?

Question: The purpose of nature is to develop all its parts to the state of polar opposites and then combine them. Why is this so? What is the meaning of such development?

Answer: Only in this way do we reveal everything. Our attainment consists of differentiation and integration of all parts of what we observe.

Remark: We see that our nature, our desire to receive, is constantly evolving, becoming more powerful, more egoistic.

My Comment: In the same way, the ability to integrate this, to capture the interconnection between all parts, is developing in us. This is what our perception of reality consists of.

But the next Kabbalistic awareness of reality is that there is no reality as such. We only project our inner properties onto the upper light, and we feel and consider this picture, which we ourselves create with our feelings, as the world in which we exist.

Question: “Upper Light” is a new term. Why do Kabbalists in their sources use it instead of the concept of “Creator”?

Answer: The Creator/Upper Light is a property of bestowal and love, and therefore, we associate it with the light of the sun, the light of the mind, with something higher.

Against the background of the upper light, the properties of bestowal and love, all our egoistic desires paint a three-dimensional, living picture of this world. But actually it doesn’t exist. I only observe my internal properties.

Therefore, to the extent that I am moving closer and closer to the properties of the upper light, this world dissolves and becomes more and more elusive, until I find myself in absolute light.

New Life 1149 – The Phenomenon Of Violence

New Life 1149 – The Phenomenon Of Violence
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Violence and outbursts in the still, vegetative, and animate levels of reality increase as the human ego develops. The human being is like a volcano and erupts as a way of coping with growing internal pressure and imbalance. There is no reason to be violent toward others as we are all activated by the same upper force and can achieve balance with one another through this force. All troubles come to us to teach us that we need to connect with this upper providence. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches how to relate everything to this upper force that is the source of all balance and peace.
