i24 News: Inside Israel’s Kabbalah News Network

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 9/12/19

It was a pleasure having the i24NEWS English crew here at our headquarters in Petah Tikva. They interviewed me about the uniqueness of Bnei Baruch, how we teach Kabbalah, and why it’s becoming so popular in our time. I explained the difference between authentic Kabbalah, and other teachings. We talked about how our organization welcomes individuals of all colors, genders and nationalities, from all over the world.

A growing resistance of society to the global, integral system—nature, leads to a decline in production, #unemployment, lower standard of living, a mandatory restructuring of financial systems, an involuntary tighter budgeting for everyone in everything.

Does Faith In The Future World Make Life Easier?

laitman_604.02Question: If everyone said that the soul is the most important thing and the body is nothing, people would probably have a different attitude toward death?

Answer: There is no doubt.

Question: Why don’t they?

Answer: First, because no one in the general population feels this, and second, it is anti-egoistic. After all, if this is directed against egoism, then who wants to work against it?

Here it is necessary to think, to make efforts, to act somehow, to organize something. What will I get from this? Nothing in this world: no food, no sex, no family, no fame, no knowledge.

Question: It is probably easier for a person to live with what is thought up in religions about the existence of a future world. But how much does the hope that there is something somewhere psychologically improve a person’s life?

Answer: Today, to improve a person’s life psychologically, it is unnecessary to be religious.

We see religions gradually fading. Recently, a lot of non-religious people have appeared who despise different beliefs of people because religions do not specifically answer our questions.

If a person needs to transform this life a little, he has Hollywood, the Internet, or something else. That’s enough for him. He will create any illusory world for himself.

What is there after death? No one knows. Therefore, a person no longer believes in this. His ego outgrew these tales and can no longer believe, much less sacrifice his time and intellect.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 3/17/19, Part 1

laitman_281.02Question: Will we ultimately have to manage the world ourselves or is it enough to reach the higher management, to agree with it, and merge with it?

Answer: No! We must rise to the level of replacing the Creator in His full control of all of creation, not only in our world but in all the worlds.

Question: Freddy Mercury brought pleasure to 110,000 people in a stadium in England, they sang together with him as a single body. Did he also influence the Creator positively?

Answer: You cannot even think like that because neither Freddy Mercury nor any other famous singer acted with a corrected intention.

Question: Are there intermediaries between the influence of the Creator and a person?

Answer: There are no intermediaries between the Creator and a person. None are needed. As for me, I am not an intermediary. I am a guide.

Question: Can other forces, good or evil, enter into our relationship with the Creator, help or harm?

Answer: No, everything is under the singular control of the Creator.

Question: What did the sin of Adam amount to if he was in spiritual attainment?

Answer: He wanted to bring his entire soul into complete attainment of and full union with the Creator, immediately, all at once.

Question: With knowledge of how the Creator manages the world, can egoism accommodate itself under this management for its own benefit, and as a result of this, distance itself from the Creator?

Answer: No, that will not work. Everything is managed openly and solely through the forces of nature, as it is written, “I am for the Creator and the Creator is for me.” Nothing can be done here. No manipulations will work out.

Question: Why does the Creator hide His perfection, not allowing us to feel unpleasant circumstances as perfect love?

Answer: It is so that we will appreciate this love, this perfection. We must go through all the contradictory situations. There is nothing to be done about it. That is how our world is constructed, because other than the positive power of the Creator, everything else is arranged according to a connection between two forces, positive and negative.

New Life #274 – The Ego And I, Part 1

New Life #274 – The Ego and I, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

The ego is self-love. Without it nothing could exist, including both pain and pleasure. The ego develops via four stages in nature: the still, vegetative, animate, and speaking or human levels. People are unique in their desire to exploit others for their own pleasure. We want what others have. We enjoy harming and humiliating others in order to feel superior. When people want to connect with others, they reveal resistance (the evil inclination). We have reached the peak of the ego’s development and are evolving into a new form of development based on mutual connection and harmony with others and with nature as a whole.
