Kabbalah And Beliefs, Part 1

laitman_560Two Worlds: Roots and Branches

Remark: Throughout history and to this day, there are several thousand belief systems in the world.

If we look at reality from the perspective of Kabbalah, on one hand, there is a constant development of human society and beliefs as a cultural phenomenon. On the other hand, there is internal change in humanity, i.e., our desires are changing, and as a result of this, our beliefs change from pagan to monotheism, etc.

What is the difference between Kabbalah and various beliefs from the perspective of internal development? For example, there is a very important rule in Kabbalah that all the processes occurring in the spiritual worlds must manifest in the material world at least once.

My Comment: The spiritual worlds are the root of everything that occurs, and our world is a consequence or a branch of that root. Therefore, everything that exists in the upper worlds must somehow manifest itself in our world, at least once, in some particular form.

For instance, a very powerful force or some particular action in the upper world might manifest in our world as a barely noticeable occurrence or force.

The fact is that the upper root must always come in contact with our world and create its branch in it. We, proceeding from that branch, can learn something about the root itself.

Does Spirituality Affect Corporeality?

Laitman_633.3Question: How does being in the spiritual dimension affect the corporeal future of an individual person and humanity?

Answer: It does but not in everything, because besides you, there are several billion people, everything else in this universe, and in all the worlds.

Although you do interfere with the fate of the people and the world, but you do so only in a very limited way. You have to assemble all the people together, and then you will change everything.

Call To The Heart Of Your Friend

laitman_942Question: It is written, “Do speak to the sagging friends to join us.” (Baal HaSulam, Letter No 12). Before each congress many friends feel that their urge to connect fades a little. How can I appeal to the heart of the friend? With what?

Answer: Just ask for them, nothing else is required. That is first.

Second, naturally, before the congress, there is a division into those who rush to the congress, and those who, as if back off.

It depends on how much effort a person has made, and how ready he is, which affects him by pushing him either forward or backward.

Seeing The Creator Behind Each Friend

laitman_544Question: How can I protect myself from weakening because of the negative words and emotions that I often get from others studying Kabbalah?

Answer: You should treat this very simply: There is no one else; there is only the Creator. He dresses in all the friends who seem to exist to you, and through them He conducts His exercises on you.

Suddenly it seems that the friends are saying something to you, or neglecting you, or humiliating you. In fact, it is not them, but the Creator who treats you this way. Therefore, always pay attention to them, but keep in mind that you receive it from the Creator.

Therefore, you should see the Creator behind each friend. Then you will have no complaints about them but only about yourself or the Creator.

Question: Does all this come from the Creator for the purpose of our advancement?

Answer: Certainly.

Question: Does humiliation advance a person?

Answer: Every moment of your life is meant only in order to advance you. The Creator constantly drags you to Him, even when you do not feel it. This is what He does.
