Why Do Children Take Drugs?

laitman_961.1Question: Eleven-year-old girls in Berlin take ecstasy. An increase in the number of adolescents and children who abuse drugs has been recorded. This is of concern to both politicians and scientists.

When people take these drugs, they become sociable, feel like they are in love, and are more open to others. However, when the effect ends, they feel irritable, depressed, a loss of  strength and concentration. Such a “hangover” after taking the pills can last several days.

At the same time, a drug-related environment is growing in Berlin. You can go to a place where drugs can be tested for purity, and cleaned so as to avoid death.

These are eleven-year-old children! These are fourth graders. Where does such a craving for drugs come from in kids?

Answer: A young person wants to feel good and interesting. The world becomes good around him; something that he really lacks. The world becomes cheerful; something that is not in this world. The world is becoming friendly, which really it never is. He builds his world with this pill.

It is very hard for them. If some time ago people were in the ranks, and it satisfied them, they worked hard, and this put them in their place. However, the younger generation is unlike that, it does not want that. It wants to feel good in this particular way. Generations pass, and the German spirit is changing.

15% of Germany, France, and the UK are immigrants. This means that the social atmosphere is changing at a breakneck pace. The young generation of German children have to somehow adapt to this. They are taught, they are told, and they themselves see that they must somehow perceive the world that adults have made for them. This is not the same Europe anymore.

Question: You said that children are looking for a way out of themselves in order to leave the closed world they are in. How can I do that? What does the wisdom of Kabbalah say about this?

Answer: Kabbalah says that we have to make them a happy childhood. Adults need to try very hard to make this happen. We have to know how to do it, and they don’t.

Question: How can we do it?

Answer: By being connected through good relationships, and then, on this basis, create an atmosphere for children where they feel good, so that at eleven years old they would want to play among themselves, and not plunge into their world of illusion.

People have to build a society, but they do not. They obey multiculturalism and liberalism. The result is that they simply lose themselves and the next generation.

Interactions between people are something that they lack, and so they run away to pills.

We are present now at the rebirth of a generation. There was a generation of computers, then a generation of phones, and now this is already going to the next level.

Question: Scientists say that we live in a time that is lightning fast. Every second people send sixty million messages on social networks. If earlier, we perceived several frames per minute when we watched a movie, now we perceive several dozens. That is, we have become absolutely impatient.

Children apparently also want the result, they are perhaps unconsciously striving for, here and now. How can we overcome this impatience? In general, does impatience somehow help in our fast-paced time?

Answer: I disbelieve all of this because in the end a person needs to experience the fulfillment of his desires and feelings. He thinks he will fill it with a number of frames per second. It will not happen. He thinks that he will fill himself with the fact that he will travel around the world, forget himself, and feast his eyes—this will also end.

All this gradually ends. In addition, the crisis will not allow us to turn around the world this way and do what we want. A huge crisis is approaching, and I hope that it puts us all in our place.

Question: How can I replace an ecstasy pill with a spiritual “pill”—a “pill” of losing my temper?

Answer: Replacing with a spiritual “pill,” of course would be nice, but for this you and I will have to work very hard. We will have to spread this knowledge about the possibility of going out of ourselves into much higher spheres than ecstasy, telephones, computers, and so on.

The human being is practically unlimited in his comprehension, in his development, a sense of eternity and the perfection of nature. We have to show him that this is possible. We have to develop in him the opportunity to feel the upper world literally in childhood. I hope that we will live to see it.

Why Do I Feel Good When Others Feel Bad?

laitman_629.3Question: Why do I feel good when others feel bad? Why am I envious of people? How can I change this?

Answer: It is because you do not feel them as parts of your spiritual body.

I am very sorry for you, but I also understand your state. If you could see that you exist with them in one common vessel and that the light, that is, spiritual life in this vessel cannot exist precisely because of your attitude toward them, then of course, you would change.

We will get to this, and you will see that it is possible.

World—Reality Or Illusion? Part 1

laitman_526No Limit to Perception

Remark: One can study the article “The Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah” forever. I have gone back to it for 20 years and still find something new in it every time.

My Comment: The need for a beginning is felt more from the end. Any real science develops a person so that he needs to study it again and again.

Remark: Let’s say The Study of the Ten Sefirot studies the physics of the spiritual worlds, and every time you seem to discover it anew. However, “The Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah” seems like an ordinary article that can be treated lightly, and suddenly you discover such depths within it.

My Comment: This is not because of the article, but because it expands the limits of your perception and your attitude to the world. The first four topics in this article are “A conduct of general and particular,” “The Abundance of Partzufim, Sefirot, and Worlds,” “Two Conducts—from Above Downward and from Below Upward,” and “Abstract Names” in the wisdom of Kabbalah. They talk about many concepts that are very complex and serious.

When you get to the fifth or sixth concept you begin to understand that you, in fact, still do not understand the first ones. You have read, agreed with them, and moved on. And now you see how comprehensive they are internally, and you again turn to them. There is no getting around it, you have to do something about it. So you study them again.

How many times do we go through all the articles of Baal HaSulam? Those who read “The Essence of the Wisdom of Kabbalah” for the first time today cannot even imagine what else they will see in it after they go through it the second and third time, or in a year, or in 10 years.

For example, I have been studying the wisdom of Kabbalah for 40 years and I cannot even compare what I had imagined about these concepts previously and now today. The current me and the person who opened this article 40 years ago are completely different people.

Question: Does it mean that in Kabbalah there is no such thing as in our world, “I have already read this”?

Answer: There is no such thing in Kabbalah. In anything! You get into this wisdom and you immerse yourself in it without the ability to somehow finish it.

It talks about such a round, interconnected world that you can pull one string and all of reality will change for you. Every new definition, every new sensation, and new attainment changes everything because there are only ten Sefirot, but each of them consists of another ten and another ten; it turns out that there is no limit to perception.

The world is infinite, although it consists of only ten parts, ten emanations.
