It will gradually become clear that there is no regular solution to the crisis by returning to the prior economic structure. We must rather create a new economy, with a new solution to inequality issues. Not patching up the old, but creating a new society, economy, relationships. Side by side with upbringing!
There is a need for the nations of the world to reveal the Creator. This will happen when the nation of #Israel reveals #Kabbalah to the nations of the world. From it, knowledge of the Creator will become clear to everyone. (Baal HaSulam, “Messiah’s Horn”)
Blows of nature separate us from activities that oppose spiritual development, to which egoism pushes us. We will return only to the necessary jobs. We shouldn’t try to restore ALL of the previous businesses. They are dying out. The Creator desires unity, in order to reveal His light within it.
The blow that comes from #nature is aimed at cutting us off from all unnecessary jobs, and thereby cleansing the environment. It frees society from unnecessary activities and thoughts, freeing us for what nature wishes—our spiritual development.

I do not appeal to those people who handle power and money. I turn to ordinary people, to ordinary citizens, explaining to them what form of relations our society should come to, what connections between us we should have so that there will be no viruses.
This does not require intervention of governments and financiers, police, courts, etc. It is only necessary for ordinary citizens to understand what will benefit them.
The world is revealed to us as an integral one, and if we relate to this integral world according to its true form, then we will benefit from it.
If there is a system in front of me that I cannot work with, of course, I will not be able to use it correctly. If I am familiar with this system, with the forces that work in it, then I can control it. Otherwise, we invade the system of nature and destroy it all.
When I try to look at the world as an integral system where everyone is connected together, I suddenly find that my perception of reality is changing: I will see how all of the connections are locked, and I join them. This will allow me to get involved in the system and feel the force acting within.
Everything is connected in one system: inanimate nature, plants, animals, and people. If we want to live well, we must take this into an account.

Question: What was the ideological conflict between the Maccabees and the Hellenistic Jews?
Answer: The opposition was that the Maccabees were in favor of uniting the people under one common principle so that all were like brothers who felt the inner unity of each other.
And the Hellenists were for proclaiming each person free, independent, not worshipping the one God, i.e., the one force, nature, and, accordingly, the one uniting principle. Each person chose from a large host of gods to worship, as in ancient times when people worshiped trees, stones, celestial forces, stars, etc.
As a result, there was a huge difference between them in their ideology, behavior, and attitude toward each other. In principle, the Hellenists existed each by himself. Their state was held only by bayonets, despite the fact that later they were guided by reasonable methods borrowed from the Jews after the conquest of Israel.

Answer: He answers all prayers!
Question: If, for example, a person needs money to pay off his deficit with a bank, and he is as if unconsciously praying, is this situation of needing money already a prayer from the point of view of Kabbalah?
Answer: Of course. It is the disclosure of any desire.
Question: Suppose he takes a prayer book and begins to pray, to pray for money. Will money appear?
Answer: No. The Creator does not respond to such selfish requests. After all, a person will then think: “I have prayed and received, which means I should pray more.” It just means that the Creator does not let him go.
And if it seems to a person that he has received an answer, then this is also the Creator’s will that he would still think so.
Question: What if he is asking for money not for himself, not egotistically, can he get it?
Answer: I cannot imagine that. There are no prayers at all for fulfillments in our world.
Question: What about prayers for health?
Answer: This was invented later. Although, in principle, we need to pray only for getting closer to the Creator, and this is the fulfillment of all our desires.

They are carriers of the method even today, only they themselves do not know about it. But they have a hidden spiritual gene.
Everybody hates the Jews because they do not implement this method between themselves and do not pass it on to others.
Question: But is this all unconscious, not because they don’t want to?
Answer: Yes. But the presence of this method within the Jews still makes them special in other activities.
Question: Is there a formula that everything bad in the world comes from poor connection between people?
Answer: Naturally. But in particular from the bad connection between the Jews.
Question: Does everything bad in the world happen because of Jews?
Answer: This is an axiom. It means the world must force the Jews to unite. And then humanity will unite in a good connection, and everything will be fine.
And we, the Kabbalists, should improve the methodology, bring it closer to everyone.

Question: As soon as my egoism gets bigger and the influence of the light diminishes, I find myself in descent. And vice versa, when the light covers my egoism, the ascent happens. Is this like physics?
Answer: Certainly, this is physics! But we don’t want to take it into account. We give ourselves up to our feelings. And in general, this is an absolute reality. Kabbalah has everything: formulas, graphs, and diagrams. Kabbalah is the foundation of all other sciences, the qualities and actions of nature.
Question: Does this mean that it is possible to look at the still, vegetative, and animate nature, take all the laws from there, and simply apply them to human society? And that is the right thing to do?
Answer: Relatively, but not everything! Because the still, vegetative, and animate levels are our animate part, and our human part is attained by the science of Kabbalah.
Comment: In physics, there are clear laws of interaction between physical bodies in the universe. And in the human society there are no clear laws of our communication. People don’t even know how to interact with each other properly.
My Response: Unfortunately, there is no such science in our world that addresses the level of Man (Adam).
Question: Maybe there is some kind of universal law?
Answer: Universal law, of course there is one, but it is studied only in Kabbalah. It is the law of the correct interaction of people and their relationship to the still, vegetative, and animate nature and the Creator. It consists in the fact that a person must rise above his egoism and work not only with a negative force, but also with a positive one at the same time.
Our egoism is a negative force. It presses us and pushes us only toward grabbing everything that exists from this world. And the science of Kabbalah explains in what way it is possible to compensate it with the quality of bestowal, for both forces to be equal and compensate each other. Then we will be in balance. This we need to achieve.

Question: In one of your interviews I heard that in order to be filled with light, one needs to be completely free from his ego. Is egoism also enjoying the beauty of nature, of the human body, of pictures and sounds?
Answer: We do not need to think about how and what to be filled with. We receive this anyway and it has nothing to do with us. We only need to think about how we want to develop. Enjoying nature, sounds, pictures, colors, which may be positive human impulses, has nothing to do with the wisdom of Kabbalah, and you can continue to enjoy them.
Kabbalah is about attaining the source of life, the force that sustains all of nature and includes our universe and us. Therefore, we do not suggest that a person gives up any of the pleasures in this life. Absolutely not.
You can continue engaging in anything you wish. But if you are seriously engaged in Kabbalah, it will begin to capture you and move your interests to spirituality. You will be more interested in the causes and effects of your actions.
Kabbalah introduces you to the system of world management, the system of the universe. This is somewhat different from discovering birds singing or a riot of colors.
It is good to hear that you are already beginning to realize that Kabbalah is the source of wisdom. This science was revealed to humanity 6,000 years ago. There truly is something to learn from it. It is infinite, deep wisdom of the laws of nature, which reveal an absolutely complete, interconnected picture of the universe.
In our world, we study biology, zoology, physics, chemistry, thousands of kinds of sciences about the world around us. And Kabbalah is a single science that unites and unfolds before us all of nature as one single whole. We are in this one whole as are all the worlds, including our world, and all their manifestations from the beginning of creation to its end.
One science, one approach, opens everything to you. Therefore, this is a unique attainment.
Question: But at the same time, we do not cease to feel the beauty of nature, to love classical music, etc.?
Answer: It is all true. I also love classical music, I feel and enjoy the beauty of nature. I am generally a simple, ordinary person.
But at the same time, the interconnection of all parts of nature that Kabbalah reveals to us provides us with such a pleasure from mutual connection, mutual complementation of all parts, all laws, everything that happens, that it is precisely in this attainment of the merging of all properties, laws, and thoughts from beginning to end, in the attainment of the unity of nature that a person finds true happiness and satisfaction.
You begin to understand the extent to which every particle, every thought, every motion is mutually connected with nature eternally. Whatever happens, everything has its organic place in the system. It is actually the attainment of unity that gives man immense pleasure.

New Life 1221 – The Exodus From Egypt In The Coronavirus Era
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi
The entire developmental process that humanity is going through is intended to bring us closer to an attitude of mutual love, connection, and integrality. Like the plagues of Egypt, the coronavirus is helping humanity to stop harming each other and nature. It is causing us to sit at home with time to think about the essence of life. We must rise above our differences and become like God: the general, integral power of nature that is working behind the scenes and moves everyone. The miracle of the Exodus from Egypt occurs when we arouse God to connect among us. At the peak of our development we will be free people, liberated from slavery to the ego, and connected to love within a single system.

From My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/16/20
From the very first particles that connected into the first atoms, evolution was about growing connectedness. Compounds that could maintain their connections survived, and those that could not stick together disintegrated and vanished. On the physical level, nature has created a balanced and harmonious world whose beauty is beyond belief.
On the spiritual level, it left evolution in our hands, and we messed it all up. We failed to understand what evolution means. We thought it meant technological development, modes of governance, even athletic achievements. We tried to develop everything except the one thing we needed to: our connections. We evolved in the opposite direction from nature.
This is the reason we are suffering—because we have evolved into selfish beings that see nothing but their own interest, the exact opposite from the way every element in creation operates. Look at our own bodies: We want our organs to cooperate so we can stay healthy, but we ourselves do not want to cooperate in order to keep society healthy. It is no wonder that society is sick!
We are on the cusp of a huge transition. Those who will evolve into connected people will thrive. Those who will not realize that evolution means connection will suffer and ultimately vanish. It is an accelerating process that will put tremendous pressure on everyone to transform themselves. The sooner we adapt, the better for all of us.
