Seeds Of Exile, Part 9

laitman_747.03The Challenge of Our Generation

Question: Why were the Jewish people sent into exile and scattered throughout the earth?

Answer: In order to absorb the roots of all the peoples of the world, pass to them the correcting technique and reconnect as in ancient Babylon, but at the next level.

The source of the exile of the Jews was unfounded hatred. Therefore, only overcoming it will become the reason for the unification of the people and the fulfillment of their historical mission in the future.

Question: Can one say that hatred of the property of unity is hatred of the Creator Himself?

Answer: Yes. This is the way it is.

Question: The Creator, the highest power or nature, created us as egoists; therefore no one is to blame for what happened throughout history. All this is the manifestation of selfishness. What should we understand from this?

Answer: Just what should be done in our generation. What happened in the past has passed. In our generation, we are obliged to unite and unite the rest of the world.

Answers To Your Questions, Part 246

laitman_962.4Question: We say that there is no Creator without a created being. All the work is done in a group that is meant to clarify the concept of the Creator, but apparently the Creator exists even before the created being understands and can perceive a Creator. How can that be? Is it possible to explain that by the fact that even before the created being attains and perceives the Creator, he already understands and perceives Him on an unconscious level?

If that is the case, does that mean that the body of each member in the ten is already in contact with the Creator on an unconscious level even before they have clarified the concept of the Creator?

Answer: We speak only about what we feel and not beyond that. Otherwise, we become philosophers or even worse than that.

See How I Will Make Myself A Man!

Laitman_138Yesterday, we opened our souls to each other and felt together in one heart. And this morning, no one feels any connection with friends in the higher ten any longer, feels no need for the science of Kabbalah, the Creator, unity, and the spiritual path, and wants only to sleep like an animal.

Now I need to accept by faith above reason that I received this state from the Creator; there is none else besides Him. It is only the Creator playing with me, sending me all kinds of states, and now He has made me feel like an animal.

Moreover, the animal state is the best of all because it is from it that we need to rise to the degree of man. And if now I am on the stage of an animal it is a sign that I have finished working on my previous state and corrected it. Now I am falling into the state of an animal in order to raise myself again to the step of a person with new qualities.

Therefore I rejoice that I became an animal because now I am starting work anew at a new level. And so penny by penny accumulates a large sum. Therefore, I start the day in a good mood, full of strength, and declare to the whole world: “Watch how I the animal will make myself a man!”

laitman_278.03Question: How can you call this virus good with a straight face and say that it should be hugged, kissed, and welcomed when in Italy more than 720 people died from this virus in one day. Are ethics and empathy foreign to a Kabbalist?

Answer: What would change if I cry? I have seen a lot of things in my lifetime in all sorts of debates and bickering. All my life I have been struggling with rigidness, hatred, and misunderstanding.

Let us say that some wave comes that cuts people’s lives short. Naturally, we cannot be happy about this. But on the other hand, we must look for the rational seed in this, because nature is a closed system that does not do anything in vain as narrow-minded people think. Everything happens exactly according to the decision of the system itself, which restores itself and moves from state to state.

If the system needs to wipe out a couple of millions of people, it does it. And this is its cure. That I might be among this couple of millions—so I will be. What can I do? I will anyway.

Therefore, do not relate to what is happening like a small child. Relate to this from the point of view of the global nature. If it has to cleanse itself in such a way, it will cleanse on any level: still, vegetative, animate, and human as well.

I am not ignoring such questions; I am trying to explain how to correctly perceive an occurring situation. The easiest thing to do is to close your eyes and cry like a small child so as not to see evil. To open your eyes and look at this correctly, as an adult, is very difficult.

The World Of Roots And The World Of Consequences

712.03Remark: The form of corporeal reality is similar to the spiritual one. The difference is only in the quality of the material. There is no detail in our reality that would not have a root in the upper world.

In other words, our world is the world of consequences and the spiritual world, or the world of forces, is the world of roots, i.e., root causes.

My Reply: Everything is very simple. There are reasons and there are consequences. The cause is the upper world, and the effect is our world. Depending on this, we can define them like that.

Question: You said that in the spiritual worlds there are such phenomena that have no consequences in our world. There is a wider range of various sensations there and are not all of them materialized in our world?

Answer: Yes. What do the spiritual world and our world mean? The spiritual world is what is felt in our desires that are corrected into bestowal, into love for others. Our world is what is felt in our uncorrected, selfish desires.

Naturally, there is a difference in sensations because both worlds, their boundaries, calibration, and everything else, are determined only relative to a person. Therefore, we can talk either about what is felt by an ordinary person in our world, not corrected in his egoism, or by a person who has already risen above his egoism and feels what is happening in the intention for bestowal or love for the neighbor.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 2/9/20

Laitman_630.2Question: Is the intensity of the impact of the light the same on each level or does the intensity increase according to the height of the level?

Answer: Of course. The point in the heart awakens a stronger impact of the light unto itself according to its need to develop, which is determined by its environment.

We study in Talmud Eser Sefirot about this in a very accurate manner. The five lights NRNHY change on each level according to its intensity and the need to nourish the soul.

Question: How can we determine whether the point in the heart has awakened? What does a person feel?

Answer: If a person feels a very strong desire to understand what he is living for, what there is beyond his own life and death, how the world and the universe are organized and built, who manages it, why, how and for what purpose, if he feels that without an answer to such questions he cannot continue to live a quiet peaceful life and that he cannot enjoy anything in life, then such a serious attitude to the meaning of life should bring him to the wisdom of Kabbalah and show him where he can find the answers to these questions.

Question: We know what it means to receive in the corporeal world. In what sense does this receiving differ from spirituality?

Answer: Spiritual receiving is filling in altruistic attributes. To the extent that I am in the state of love and bestowal, I begin to feel the attributes that fill me.

Question: We gather in a ten and begin to raise our soul in it until we feel ascent and adhesion and as a result the one soul of this ten is created. What’s next?

Answer: Next, these tens will begin to gather, and thus you will begin to increase and unite the general soul until it reaches its ideal initial state in which everyone comes together into one general structure where the Creator is revealed in a perfect manner.

Question: Is it true that the Torah is a book of codes that has four levels of study?

Answer: Yes, that’s true. The Torah is a book that is not understood at all. It does describe everything as a historic story, but in fact it is not a historic story. There are four levels of attaining the Torah and each is deeper than the other. The wisdom of Kabbalah engages in the revelation of all these levels, of the gradual entry to the code of the Torah.
