How Much Do I Contribute To The Spiritual Advancement Of Others?

laitman_962.7Spiritual attainment absolutely does not depend on the person himself but only on how much he contributed to the advancement of others. Otherwise, what is this spirituality? After all, one realizes actions for the sake of bestowal, that is, actions of the Creator, helping others, receiving permission to enter spirituality for them. One made efforts to make oneself a channel for awakening the friend.1

To pray for the friend means to want the Creator to help him. There is no need to go into details conveying to the Creator exactly how to help. I pray for the friend if I am ready to give him my Kelim so that he will simply rise and correct himself on their account. That is, I turn into a connecting channel for him.2

How can I convince the Creator to help me? In the time of Terah, the father of Abraham, it was possible to pay a priest and buy patronage above. This is the technique of Terah adopted in all religions and beliefs. But the method of Abraham is different and claims: “Only love!” Only if I want to achieve spirituality, bestowal, and I ask for a friend, then the Creator helps.3

We do not seek to despair from the work, but when the despair comes, we perceive it as a good sign. Indeed, it is known that despair is a genuine Kli. If there is disappointment in one’s own abilities, then a desire over which I have absolutely no power has been revealed. And then I can ask the Creator from this desire.

Despair is a sign that I have no power over my desire in any form. The Creator illuminates this desire in such a way that I see that I am incapable of correction. And then I can turn to Him. Maybe I cannot cope with disappointments and I fall—it does not matter. It is said: “A righteous falls a thousand times and rises.” Let’s say I fall, but I will receive experience on how to fall and rise. It is known that while an infant learns to walk, he falls and rises many times.

We are approaching the exodus from Egypt, and therefore, each next step becomes more joyful and harder. And salvation is only in our unity.

For me, the main thing is to act in such a way as to at least bring contentment to the Creator. Even by the fact that I do not give up this path, I already delight Him. The Creator, as it were, pushes me away and forces me to quit, but I remain despite of all my disappointments. And by doing so, I certainly bring Him contentment.4

laitman_243.05At the Crossroads of the Outer and Inner Worlds

Question: Who am “I” in regard to the Creator? If He is internal, He is external, and there’s none else besides Him, thus, is there an “I”?

Answer: This is called the middle part of the Sefira Tifferet. Externally, everything comes from the Creator, inside of me everything also comes from the Creator, and I have this so-called midpoint, which is not outside and not inside, but at the crossroads, at the junction, of my external and internal worlds. This point is my personal point. It doesn’t apply to either the external or the internal Creator. I need to discover this point within and move forward.

While I’m in it or out of this point, I begin to act as if the Creator fills my external and internal worlds entirely while I’m engaged in all my external and internal actions, in my subconscious, and whatever else. By achieving this I come to a state where there’s really none else besides Him, and this is the meaning and end of my correction.

See The World Filled With Love

laitman_237Question: Everything comes from the Creator, both the good and my uncorrected state from which I suffer. How is it that I feel the good that comes from the Creator as a problem, and all this merges into one?

Answer: The feeling that everything is bad is your subjective feeling. Correct it and you will begin to feel good in the same sensation. After all, there is nothing bad in the world at all.

Despite the fact that we are seemingly going through such horrors, the modern world contains it all, if you correct your qualities, you will see that the world is filled only with endless love. Let’s try to really feel it.

laitman_622.01Question: How is it possible to determine that I or the group have achieved something?

Answer: When a feeling of the Creator appears in you or in the group, you will be certain that this is a real attainment. Until then, do not believe anyone and work gradually and quietly on connection in the group.

Question: Does the name by which we call the Creator depend on our attainment?

Answer: Yes, it is precisely according to our attainment, our sensation, that we give a name to the Creator.

Question: When entering the ten there is a very strong feeling of overcoming and you want to think only about the ten and about connection for 24 hours, is this the accelerated process of person’s spiritual?

Answer: Yes. I am very happy that you correctly perceive the spiritual Kli in this way. If it continues this way, you will very quickly achieve the attainment of the Creator. Good luck!

Question: Will other people also attain the Creator after us?

Answer: Imagine that the world will not end after you. But it will not last forever. As long as parts of the general soul have not been corrected, we will continue to appear in this world, helping each other with our mutual correction.

Question: What is the Creator made of? How can we feel Him in our world?

Answer: The Creator is not made of anything. We perceive Him only as the source of energy, the source of light, and the source of goodness. It is solely and only this way.

Question: Is it something like a spiritual model, a template, a matrix, through which I receive a particular illumination?

Answer: Yes, you are absolutely right.

New Life 1190 – The Need For Support From Others

New Life 1190 – The Need For Support From Others
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Humans are social creatures that cannot survive alone in the world. They have internal spaces that require connection. We become enriched and our burdens are lightened when we are included with others. We become aware of complex forces that operate on us when we have mutually supportive relationships. We must integrate into the form of the other person by building his model within, becoming clothed in him in order to feel what he is truly missing and to offer the right support. Ultimately, all of us will become connected as one and life will flow between us.
