A Prayer Is A Force

laitman_249.01There will be several thousand people at the upcoming World Kabbalah Convention in Israel. This is a massive force. Tens of thousands of people all over the world will also be following us on the Internet. This is a powerful gathering of common work and progress, where we can make another step forward. We can raise MAN, and reveal the Creator within our connection.

Every person has to collect all the people who have gathered at the convention at the same time, all of their desires and aspirations, the prayers of both men and women, and raise them to the Creator. I ask for their correction, for all these desires to become corrected, i.e., for the sake of bringing contentment to the Creator. Each of us who forms such a prayer is a force. There is nothing like that in the world. If we do everything right, without a doubt we can earn the first spiritual degree. This is our preparation for the convention.

How do I collect the desires of my friends? I want them to be inside my heart, so that I feel responsible for them. I must say that the world exists for my sake, for me to correct it. Everyone must say so.

I want to take the desires of my friends and elevate them to the Creator. My only contribution to this is that I connect them and place them inside my intention to bestow to Him. The created beings need the Creator’s help, and I also want to help them by passing the Creator’s help to them through me.2

Love The Spiritual Point In The Other’s Heart

laitman_622.02Question: Should I imagine the point in the heart of a woman whom I cannot stand in my ten? I cannot find another way to justify the fact that she is the exact opposite of me. The fact that I depict a point in her heart is the only thing I can think of to get out of a state of rejection.

Answer: You said it remarkably: “I hate everything in her, except for one point in the heart. And I love the spiritual point in her heart.”

So imagine that you are against this point, and everything else does not matter. This is the most important thing we need to do.

Love Can Be Different

laitman_284.07Question: If people maintain friendly relations after a divorce, then love did not bind them?

Answer: It is possible that love connected them. After all, love can be different.

If I respect another person, I feel attracted to him, but this is not enough to love him; I can still be faithful to him, understand, respect, and help him.

But to love is a completely different state. Love is not a state of reciprocity.

“I give you and you give me” is called a friendly state. And love is when it is not “I give you and you give me,” but rather, “I give you,” and that is all.

Perhaps two people meet, get together, and it seems to them that it is love, but in reality, it is nothing more than friendship. It can end at a purely physiological level, or at a level where people help each other, and so on. But this is not love.

Love is when you experience contentment from filling another person without any response whatsoever.

New Life #23 – Choosing A Suitable Partner

New Life #23 – Choosing a Suitable Partner
Dr. Michael Laitman gives a new perspective on relationships

A couple is created when two people become one system that is based on giving and mutual acceptance. Like animal pairs, couples used to be close to nature and felt one another instinctively. Now, we compete with others in society and feel pressure and internal conflict when choosing a partner. In order to rediscover the inner map that guides each of us, we need to engage in preparatory relationship courses. These courses will teach us about the natural desire to enjoy and its constant development. This new education will show us how to transcend the human ego and discover, through our partners, a spring of life that fulfills us in a way that nothing else can.
