Virtuous Disturbances

laitman_938.01Question: The Creator creates material and spiritual disturbances for us. Are these disturbances connected with us in any way?

Answer: Yes, they are. There are times when souls are more in need of either material or spiritual disturbances. Moreover, a material disturbance is not just a lack of livelihood. It can be diseases, drugs, problems with ecology, with anything, not to mention money and everything else.

These disturbances are not on the spiritual, but on the physical level, on matter. Therefore, our world is called material. All humanity experiences such disturbances.

Spiritual disturbances are unique and virtuous, when the Creator limits us in rapprochement between us and in rapprochement with Him in our connection. They lead us straight to the goal. Therefore, we need to replace material disturbances with spiritual ones since a person goes from spiritual disturbances directly to the goal.

We must learn to perceive them correctly. We will then have no problems. I will rejoice in constantly arising spiritual problems.

I do not want friends, I reject them, I do not want to get up, to come to the lessons, to smile at someone. All these are spiritual disturbances. This is how the Creator gives me the opportunity to overcome them and connect even more with my friends each time.

Question: What is better: to sit in the group with friends when one of them is in constant spiritual descent and worries, or is it preferable to be closer to the Creator when you are in joy and aspiration? Or these are different revelations?

Answer: These are really different states. You cannot say which one is better and which one is worse. What the Creator gives you at any given moment means that this is what is necessary for your specific correction. You just need to understand how to use any state as productively as possible.

Bricks Of Connection

laitman_942Question: What are the bricks that the Temple (Kli/vessel) is built from?

Answer: They are all the obstacles that are revealed in us, all the rejections, estrangements, and unwillingness to get closer to each other that we overcome and ask for the opposite, to be united.

Any connection between us above any rejections is yet another brick that you add to the Temple, the place where the Creator will be revealed. Just count how many bricks you can lay in one hour, and you will see that you can add more every minute. Even faster.

laitman_933Who Wrote the Torah?

Question: Who wrote the Torah? Is it true that Moses wrote it?

Answer: Moses did not write it. It was written by people in the days of Moses and Joshua. It ends like this: a description of Moses’s death and entering the Land of Israel.

Question: So Moses kind of dictated the Torah to people? Or he taught them and from their attainment they later wrote it? In principle, even Kabbalists attribute the authorship of this book to Moses.

Answer: The point is not the authorship. The fact is that a person who is writing the Torah is experiencing these states and describing them with the corresponding letters. Therefore, the people who wrote the Torah in the time of Moses and Joshua depicted the states they experienced in the form of such signs.

Question: Similar to The Book of Zohar that was written by the ten disciples of Rabbi Shimon, the Torah was also written in that way?

Answer: The fact that the method of the Torah was to be implemented in a group is undoubted because it comes from the very nature of creation. When not fewer than ten different, disparate egoistic desires begin to conjugate above their egoism, only then can they describe their above-egoistic state, called spiritual, in the correct letter designations.

What Is The Spirit Of The Body?

Laitman_168Question: What is the spirit of the body that brings us into interaction with each other?

Answer: This is a common force that binds everyone together and provides us with eternal existence. We must leave individual existence from the sensation of our personal life, which ends with the death of the body, to the existence of our common life, which we will begin to feel as circulating between us.

For example, in the human body, millions of cells die during a day, and others are born instead. The same way as one cell dies in the body, when we die, we become like this cell in the common body of humanity, which dies and disappears from the body.

In order not to disappear without a trace along with the death of our animal body, we need to connect with the life of a common body, which means to strive through our connection between us to the Creator. This is what the science of Kabbalah does.
