My Thoughts On Twitter 6/10/20

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Big offices will disappear. “Working from home” will be the norm. Big #cities will shrink, and offices will be converted to housing. Big companies, global business, big banks, and the financial system will disappear! #Banks will only finance commerce and manufacturing.
Countries will be self-sufficient.

What to expect: the falsehood of the current system is becoming obvious. The #unemployment rate will not fall. #Pension funds will not survive. Flights and meetings will not be restored. All meetings and conferences will be held over video. Mass #tourism will completely die out. Most #hotels will be closed.

Hatred can only be cured by love, which covers all transgressions. There is no love, but you can attract this force from above! We will have to learn to love. There is no choice! With many nationalities living in the US, a real Babylon, how can we come to a common agreement? Only through love…!

Love does not require intelligence. I simply love, no explanation. This should be clear to everyone of the eight billion people, it requires no preparation. Our generation is ready to listen and understand that the solution can only be found in love. Either we unite or die!

The #riots that broke out in America are spreading all over the world, and will not subside. New viruses and terror will come, all just to lead us to love. There is no reason to love, but I know that if I don’t, I will be finished, and so will this world.

In our time, only love can save us, that is, unity above all differences. Even if there is nothing I like about my child, I still love him! Love knows no laws: “love covers all crimes.” This is the kind of love we need to learn!

Revealing love means revealing that there is a force in the world that unites us above hatred. Thus, hatred becomes manifest in order for us to have the need for love. Without love, hatred cannot be corrected. These two forces reveal and complement each other.

We were told at mount Sinai: “If you don’t unite, this will be your burial place.” We are required to execute the law of nature—unity. Total unity is called “love.” Nature will bring us to it by any means! Therefore, salvation lies only in love—connection above any rejections!

What is the reason for the unrest that is happening now in America and China? The Creator wants to show us that the only thing we lack is love. We need to search and find this force of love, because only with it can we achieve such a connection when everyone will be happy!

We need to build life not based on the old model but in a whole new way. Anyone who is not currently an essential worker for society does not have the right to break quarantine. We must not return to the old world, but learn to live in a new world with the #coronavirus!

Currently, across many countries, #quarantine is gradually lifted, and people are happily rushing back to shops and restaurants. A week later they will see a new surge in infection rates. We are trying to return to the old life, but this is a big mistake that will cost us dearly.

The world has entered a period when every day there is a growing responsibility to start the correction. #Coronavirus, #unemployment, and other impending problems and unrest are compelling us to it.

Baal HaSulam: I merited spiritual attainment only because I cared about revealing it to my generation!
Unlike still, vegetative, and animate, at the Human level there is a special kind of egoism made by the Creator, which prevents me from perceiving things outside of myself as having the right to exist unless they benefit me.
Thus, the only way to correct it is by covering the opposite with the quality—the power of love!

New Life 1230 – The Individual Versus National Institutions

New Life 1230 – The Individual Versus National Institutions
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi

The crisis of trust between national institutions and citizens will only be resolved through a new, general, social education program. The coronavirus epidemic is causing us to feel that we are living in a global world, and if we do not learn to be considerate of each other, all of us will die. The state has no obligation to help all business owners, but it is worthwhile to ensure that every citizen has a basic income. Each person and the state need to connect through the power of love and become like a single body.

Kabbalistic Terms: “The Quality Of Hassadim”

laitman_276.01Question: There is a concept in Kabbalah of the “quality of Hassadim,” “Hesed.” What does it mean?

Answer: Hesed is a property of bestowal. When such a quality arises in creation or a man aspires to it, we use the term “Hassadim.”

Question: It turns out that all of Kabbalah is about giving and receiving? Nothing else?

Answer: There is nothing else. In our world everything consists of plus and minus. All our thoughts consist of reception and bestowal.

Question: So, there are only two actions in society: either I receive from society or I give?

Answer: Absolutely correct.

Comment: But it seems like there’s a lot more.

My Response: No. Everything still consists of these two directions.

Two Trends In The Life Of The Jewish Diaspora, Part 2

laitman_749.01Anti-Semitism—the Law of Preservation of the Jewish People

Question: Christianity is a religion millions of people have converted to. And it has always been claimed that specifically Jews avoided this. And suddenly, Jews themselves began to convert to Christianity. It would seem that everyone should be happy that they finally understood who the real God, the Messiah is. And here, we have the opposite.

Why were the nations of the world not happy that Jews were becoming Christians?

Answer: It was not a question of whether they were happy or not. It does not depend on the people or their rulers. It depends on the upper force that has a predetermined goal. If you advance toward this goal, then everything is fine. And if you deviate or go in the opposite direction, you naturally get these rebounds.

Even at the time of the exile of the Jews from Spain, Queen Isabella said to the Jews who begged her not to chase them out of the country: “Why do you address me? You must turn to the Creator! He does everything, not me.”

Remark: A great sage, close to the royal couple, Don Yitzhak Abarbanel wrote that Queen Isabella said: “The heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord like streams of water: wherever He wants, He directs it.” And added: “Do you think that what has fallen to your lot comes from us? The Lord has put it in the heart of the King.”

Answer: How low have the Jews fallen so that the Spanish Queen must explain the Torah to them, that everything is in the hands of the Creator and not in the hands of the King!

Remark: After about 300,000 Jews were exiled from Spain, a severe regression began.

My Reply: More than 500 years have passed since then, but Spain has never recovered. It used to be the most prosperous country.

Remark: The neighboring countries that accepted the Jews said: “Thank you for them, King Ferdinand. Why did he have to drive them out?”

Something irrational happened. Everyone understood that it was not necessary to do this because their entire economy was managed by Jews and managed well, in favor of the elite itself. On the other hand, they had already converted to Christianity and there was no problem. And suddenly, something incomprehensible happens: some sort of a law turns on.

My Reply: The supreme law. The upper force. If the Jews had remained there, they would have completely disappeared. This way, by arousing hatred against them and chasing them from place to place, it was possible to preserve this people in order to lead them to a state when, in our time, they can already lead the whole world toward the goal.

For more on this topic, read my books Like a Bundle of Reeds: why unity and mutual guarantee are today’s call of the hour, and The Jewish Choice: Unity or Anti-Semitism, Historical facts on anti-Semitism as a reflection of Jewish social discord.

The Wisdom Of King Solomon: “God Made Man Straight”

Laitman_508.2God made man direct, but people seek many tricks. The direct path is very difficult because it is in complete contradiction with our egoism. How can we go on it?! We are always trying to do something for ourselves. And for our own sake, it is always against others. And so a direct path is impossible.

Like a sailboat that sails into the wind but at an angle and always maneuvers in such a way that it is possible to go as if against the wind, but forward, so should a person. That is, you have to maneuver and move forward, but this is not easy.

Comment: But still, it says here that God made man direct.

My Response: God made a person direct, this means the prototype of a spiritual person. But in fact, when a person appeared in our world, he was absolutely the opposite.

And now how am I supposed to reach that goal that I cannot come to in a direct way? It is not my nature. I have already fallen from it. So, I’m going, constantly adjusting myself to it, correcting a little, falling, rising, and maneuvering in a crosswind.

Question: What about the tricks of other people? All these egoistic games of ours?

Answer: No, these are all egoistic tricks, they do not move us toward that goal. I understand this goal, I understand the impossibility of coming straight to it because I have a completely different internal state. I am an egoist, not an altruist, like the goal itself to which I must come. Therefore, I move all the time, tacking.

Question: Does King Solomon even talk about the selfish man of our world?

Answer: No! He cannot go forward. He does not move, but revolves all the time around himself, his beloved.

Question: For how long?

Answer: Until on some cycle he realizes that it is nevertheless necessary to move.

Question: Tricks to the direct path?

Answer: Tricks against himself, against his egoism.

Question: Is this what a person should understand?

Answer: Yes. And then he will go forward. This is already wisdom. Because he understands his nature, understands that he must go against it, but is not able to take a direct path. And so he can still dodge it and with its help, maneuver, and reach the goal.

Question: Do you maneuver?

Answer: No one can go straight. In Kabbalah all the more so. It tells how to maneuver, how to use several forces, how to overcome descents, ascents, how to deceive egoism.

Question: That is, Kabbalah also teaches this: how to deceive your egoism?

Answer: Of course. This is a necessity. But this makes a person wiser. He applies both egoism and altruism together, and so goes forward.

In One Energy Field

laitman_929Question: Will recognizing that I depend on someone correct something or help someone?

Answer: Of course, because we influence nature with feelings and reason. With them we influence the world around us more than physically.

Therefore, it is very important if we know how we are interconnected. Thus, we can be in a common integral interaction in a single system called Adam so that the calls of the Prophets to become one, as one person with one heart, are manifested in us.

But this is all in the future. Nature sets this as its goal, and it will lead us to this. It will make us understand that we are a single system.

Despite the fact that we exist in separate egoistic protein bodies, we will have to realize that we exist in one single energetic, sensory, spiritual field.

Traveling To Other Far-Away Places

Laitman_712.02Question: We say that traveling, fashion, and current pleasures are not needed anymore. What will we give people instead? What are we going to tell them? What will they get pleasure from?

Answer: I offer you traveling in an absolutely different volume—in the spiritual one. You will be able to travel yourself, fly anywhere and however you wish through all levels, move from world to world, instead of just seeing this small, messy, smoky planet. You can feel what life outside the body means. It is all up to you.

The coronavirus is a medicine that helps us rise to the next level of existence, to feel nature. So do not be afraid, there is something to compensate for your so-called loss.

I have visited all the continents and dozens of countries myself, and I can say that nothing remains in the end. All this is needed only to fill yourself and forget. You will see, in a couple of months you won’t even remember about it. You will be captured by the other unknown far-away places.

Question: And will the people from outside hear this?

Answer: They will! The virus will do this, not us. It does not depend on what I am telling you. I am just informing you in advance. You will see in people how they will be drawn toward completely different far places.

The “Tragedy” Of Receiving For One’s Own Sake

laitman_555Comment: In the corporeal world, there are many desires and needs and one must seek constant enjoyment for them. In the spiritual world, on the contrary, there is constant abundance, and you need to look for things you are lacking.

Answer: Yes. In order to bestow contentment to the Creator, I always have to be willing to receive from Him.

Question: It turns out that in this world we are always running around in search of pleasure. And in the spiritual world there are a huge number of them, but there is no desire. Where can I get it?

Answer: There is a solution to this. In our world, the solution is to go to the level of spiritual reception, that is, for the sake of bestowal. In the spiritual world, you have an absolutely unlimited opportunity to receive for the sake of bestowal. Naturally, you have to build this over your egoism, but this justifies itself.

Comment: In the corporeal world, we only experience pleasure for a few seconds. With each passing moment it gradually disappears and then you have to wait for some kind of desire to arise again.
And in the spiritual world, as the Kabbalists say, pleasure is infinite. It is hard for me even to imagine this.

My Response: No. In the spiritual world there is a constant yearning to form a desire to bestow, and in accordance with this, there is an opportunity to realize it.

Comment: The famous English writer Oscar Wilde said, “In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it. The last is much the worst; the last is a real tragedy!”

Answer: When you receive, you are disappointed because the feeling of pleasure disappears. Pleasure is felt only on the contact between desire and fulfillment. And if this contact is no longer there, then the fulfillment becomes disgusting because instead of pleasure it brings suffering.

Therefore, the wisdom of Kabbalah is based on how to receive correctly. A person receives only with the intention to bestow. There are two opposite elements together here: the desire to receive with the intention to bestow.

If a person builds the correct correlation between them, which is called the Partzuf, then he has the opportunity for infinite pleasure, unlimited in either time, quantity, and quality.

Spiritual World: Enjoying The Action

laitman_608.02Baal HaSulam, “Thou Hast Hemmed Me In Behind and Before”: This means that the whole path of creation that the Creator created is regarded as two opposites in one subject, and all the combinations in the world were made in this way, and this is the whole of the act of creation.

Therefore, nothing disappears in the spiritual world; everything remains. It is an eternal, perfect, ever-growing world.

Question: In the material world, pleasure is gained only as a result of an action, and therefore, if we could, we would gladly give up the action itself. But in the spiritual world, is the action itself the pleasure and is it without any connection with the result?

Answer: Of course.

Remark: But in our world, there are also such pleasures when a person is ready to do something for the sake of another.

My Comment: If there is love. My teacher gave such an example. Does the Queen of England have a desire to feed her little child? She does. Does she carry it out? She does.

But she has a thousand helpers, let them do it. No, she wants to feed the child herself because there is love. Any action, if accompanied by love, gives pleasure. And vice versa.

Question: Can this indication serve as a check for a person?

Answer: Of course. Therefore, even in our world, we do a huge number of actions out of a desire to please another, and then the actions themselves bring us pleasure.

Question: That is, if I want to check whether I am in equivalence of form with the Creator, then I should not expect a result since the action itself should bring me pleasure?

Answer: Absolutely.
