My Thoughts On Twitter 3/26/20

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

My student, singer and composer, Moti Mor, wrote a song about coronavirus.
#Coronavirus requires us to have a heartfelt concern for one another, the unity that we need like the air we breathe.
#COVID2019 #coronavirus #quarantine

We couldn’t put an end to the era of egoistic #globalization, so a rescuing virus has come! We wanted to abolish borders without abolishing egoism—the virus is enforcing much stricter borders on us. How much gentler is the virus compared to world war! #Corona

The Epidemic Is Not Punishment But Remedy

laitman_961.2Throughout history, we have received many signs of attention from the Creator, the good that does good. But by existing in egoistic qualities that are opposite to the Creator, we have perceived these manifestations of love and care as blows and did not feel the need to change.

This is how loving parents push their child to learn while he only wants to play, does not listen to them, and thinks that his parents hate him.

This is exactly what is happening in the world—crises, wars, disasters, epidemics—the path of suffering that humanity has gone through. And this is because we have refused to accept the governance of the Creator as absolutely good and always bringing good, that is, to adjust ourselves to this governance.

We wanted to run away from the instructions of the Creator like children who do not listen to their parents and hide and argue all the time. This is why our life has been so bitter until today.

But now we are experiencing a special blow like no other. It comes to calm down the entire world, all of humanity, and to make us as one whole. Just as parents lose their patience and tell the children: “That is enough, calm down now!” And they take such a strict action that they actually calm down.

The upper governance is descending and closing in on us more and more, beginning to deal with us closely, individually, and directly.

Why did humanity take this blow so hard? Why does the coronavirus hold us in such fear? We are used to many people dying and being born each year in every country. Why are we so scared of this particular virus?

We know that within a hundred years the entire population of the world will change: everyone will die and new people will be born, but we do not make a tragedy out of it. The virus, however, is a psychological blow. A hidden pest is between us, we do not see or feel it, and we do not know where it will strike us from.

However, the virus really acts for our benefit by ordering us to distance ourselves from each other and not to leave the house. It is as if it tells me: “If you cannot treat each other nicely, stay at home! And if a little bit of goodness appears, you can come out but keep a distance of ten meters between you.”

The virus shows us our true relationships: that we are unable to stay together, and if we connect, we pass viruses to each other because we are egoists. This virus is the revelation of the upper governance.

The virus separates people from each other to the extent of their egoism. It forces them to stay at home instead of engaging in all sorts of useless, far-fetched things. It shows us a better kind of connection that we can have. And it did not come to harm and kill us but to organize our life correctly. This is the hand of the Creator educating us with mercy.

The epidemic is not punishment but the remedy. The virus cools down our relationships fueled by egoism, the desire to win, succeed, and exploit others for personal gain. It halts this entire race.

Stepping Over Into One Heart

laitman_275The virus separates us physically, but because of it, we begin to look for ways to connect more internally. The lack of physical connection awakens us and helps us understand that we need inner closeness.

Let there be an infinite distance between us, but we will still step over it and feel like “one man with one heart” and not just that we are in the same room. Then, in this common heart, we will feel the Creator within us.

Antibodies Against Egoism

laitman_961.2The coronavirus is the consequence of the broken connection between people. Everything is harmoniously connected in nature, at the level of elementary particles, that is, inanimate matter, as well as at the vegetative and animate levels.

At these levels, everyone uses others only to the extent necessary to which its natural instinct obliges. A wolf catches and eats the sheep not because it wishes to harm the sheep, the wolf just needs to eat it in order to survive. But after the wolf is full, it will not touch other sheep. It will have no other desire to kill them.

If a person appears instead of the wolf, he will kill all the sheep, send the meat to the store, make money, and find how to spend it for his own pleasure.

The person’s egoism knows no boundaries. His desire to enjoy does not remain within the animalistic pleasures for food, sex, and family. He tries to use others to his advantage, to conquer the whole world, to rise above all with the help of money, honor, and power. And this desire destroys our lives, making us enemies of each other.

Wealth, fame, and knowledge are egoistic fulfillments that require a person to be above others. And so, he launches all kinds of tricks to gain money from others. This already involves competition.

We do not compete with each other concerning food, sex, and family; we simply enjoy them like any animal would. However, the human level is characterized by the fact that it requires money, honor, and knowledge. This egoistic desire cannot be satisfied; it demands more and more.

But nature, which is an integral, global system, disagrees with this, just as a tree disagrees with being chopped down. Nature resists and produces antibodies that prevent a person from invading and destroying natural systems.

Nature is an integral law that binds all elements together and does not allow one to rule but only to maintain mutual connection with the rest of the elements. Therefore, as soon as we go too far with our self-interest, we immediately feel the resistance from other people, society, or some parts of nature.

Further advancement is possible only on the condition that a person observes the integral law of nature, not forgetting that we are all inside the same sphere connected by one network.

The universe and the Earth with everything that is on it: inanimate nature, plants, animals, and people are included in one mechanism and depend on one another. In this whole system, there is only one law, which requires everyone to complement each other.

Human egoism is the only component that hates everyone and wants to use everyone for its own benefit. Not only do we humans want to use nature, but we also fight with each other.

Egoism has led us to a global world in our quest to earn more and more from each other. But we did not aspire for good connections between us, which would contribute to all parts of nature. On the contrary, wherever a person infiltrated nature, he tried to subjugate it, destroying entire species out of whim, not thinking about future generations and not even his own tomorrow.

It is said: “Go make a living off of each other.” That is, each produces something of his own: one grows cucumbers and the other bakes bread so we exchange with each other. But gradually, this positive phenomenon becomes negative because every egoist wants to be a monopolist and defeat everyone.

Someone opens a bakery, then another, then a third, and we begin to compete with each other, add chemical additives to bread, drain the earth without thinking about the future. The main thing is to succeed in the eyes of others, to earn money, honor, and power. We are ready to act even to our own detriment, like the United States and Russia, which are throwing huge amounts of money into weapons, but cannot stop their confrontation.

People are becoming bigger egoists and want to enslave and exploit each other more and more to such an extent that a reaction suddenly comes from the biological level in the form of a virus. How exactly is the human level associated with a primitive virus? The fact is that all levels are connected with each other: inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature and humans are connected in one system.

Therefore, a dispute occurs between people and an earthquake occurs in response to it. Everything in nature began with one small particle that began to increasingly unite with other particles. And so atoms arose, and then living molecules started transmitting energy and information to each other until more complex organisms appeared.

There is not a single tiny particle in the universe that would not be connected through this field with the entire universe, with each of its elements at all levels: inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human. And the most decisive connection is on the human level, on the level of thought, that is, relations—it determines and controls everything.

The speed of thought is infinite; it is not limited by the speed of light, and therefore, everything is clarified in thought. And he who does not understand that all parts of nature are connected into one system is like a child who says that the cup fell and broke by itself.

So, the main conclusion from the global epidemic of the coronavirus will be that relations between people, the network connecting us, is the most important and highest phenomenon in this world that defines our whole life. If we bring it into balance, then we will restore harmony at all levels and live as if we are in heaven.

What Does It Mean To Give Contentment To The Creator?

laitman_625.03Question: What does it mean to give contentment to the Creator? After all, the fulfillment of the Kli (vessel) is called pleasure, and the lack of fulfillment is called suffering. Does it turn out that the Creator is inside of me?

Answer: Yes, it is so. I am very glad that you came to the right conclusion.

Question: Based on this, in order to give contentment to the Creator, is it correct to direct myself internally to the quality of bestowal and love?

Answer: Of course. The whole world is inside of us. There is nothing outside.

Read what Kabbalah says about perception of reality. We perceive only what appears in our senses and representations. The whole universe is inside our consciousness. And the Creator is inside our consciousness. We are all in your mind.

This is exactly how you perceive everything. There is nothing strange about it and there are no contradictions.

Acquaint yourself with Kabbalistic literature about perception of reality. It is very interesting.

How Does The Reshimo Affect The Point In The Heart?

laitman_961.2Question: How does our Reshimo (a spiritual informational record) influence the awakening of the point in the heart and the speed of its development?

Answer: The fact is that the awakening of the point in the heart is felt in a person as aiming toward the question of the meaning of life. Either it is gradually awakened by suffering or a person finds the environment and, by joining a group, begins to advance faster.

A person develops a suitable soil around one’s spiritual embryo and then one advances faster, reveals the questions of his development, and finds answers to those questions.

This is actually the development of a constantly renewed Reshimo.

What Does The Point In The Heart Need?

laitman_202.0Question: How does the human soul grow?

Answer: If a person begins to feel that he has a desire to learn the meaning of life: why, what for, and how, this is the first manifestation of the soul. It does not give us rest, and we feel it on our own, each with respect to the force of his or her soul. Although at first a person thinks that it is something very small, petty, it is not.

Question: We always say “soul.” How should we define this concept?

Answer: Unfortunately, a person does not understand what it is. He does not understand what the meaning of life is.

The question of the meaning of life, in principle, suggests that there is no meaning in life. After all, if there were, you would see it in the aspiration of people to become someone: one wants to be a designer, the other a poet, the third something else. They do not strive for this in order to just earn a piece of bread, but in order to at least find themselves in something.

And when a person feels that he cannot find himself in anything, that everything is empty, he begins to understand that the meaning is not in this world, but outside it, above it. If it really attracts him, then he begins a serious search.

This is possible in our time. I started like that too. It took me many years, until I found where and how: a dozen years before leaving for Israel, and then a few more years in Israel. All in all, it takes time.

Every person has a point in the heart. One way or another, it will awaken anyway. The question is when. Nowadays, it manifests itself clearly, quickly and in many. And before, it manifested itself every tens or even hundreds of years in special people.

Question: Previously, there were no such large groups as Bnei Baruch?

Answer: Of course. Look at how large our group is and how it is dispersed throughout the world. This is a very serious movement, which has never existed before and has appeared only now. I never expected it.

When I began to study Kabbalah, no one seriously studied it. There were several old men, literally two or three people, and that’s all. I attended their classes, but saw that you wouldn’t get anything from them. They only read the sources, and I needed serious explanations with answers to the questions that arose in me.

After all, the point in the heart requires growth, and therefore, at any given moment, we must feel what it requires and whether we can respond to its request. The main thing is to properly direct it, because it is in a selfish environment, like inside a ball made of selfishness. But inside, this point is purely altruistic.

The question is how, through egoism, to direct an altruistic influence on it that can give it food, and it will begin to sprout.

Question: Like fruit in a shell?

Answer: I would rather call it grain in manure. And this is actually so. A person must poke around in this manure in order to extract the grain and thus grow himself. It is quite complicated.

But in our time everything is already revealed. We have prepared a huge archive of various materials. So, we need to continue to disseminate.

I am very glad that we conduct lessons and lectures for our young friends. We need to make sure that they take possession of our archive and tell us how to improve it so that it is convenient, understandable, and easy for anyone who wants to come to us.

New Life 307 – Eating Disorders

New Life 307 – Eating Disorders
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

The solution to eating disorders is to introduce a positive social environment in which people aspire to a higher goal. Human warmth, calmness, security, and love need to be valued more than thinness or physical appearance. To be freed from the worship of the body and the need to use food as compensation for emotions, a person needs a society that values him according to his inner life. Every problem in life can be corrected by ascending to a higher level.
