Shaking Off The Old World

laitman_547.05Question: What values does nature want to instill in man by sending a global crisis?

Answer: First of all, to get out of the swamp we were in, to brush ourselves off from the old world; this is already of great value.

Secondly, to shake off the old habits, re-evaluate previous values and occupations, even if it we do so reluctantly, if we don’t want to. Then we will see that nature shakes off all garbage from us, that in the end we will not be able to restore our small businesses built only on serving each other because there will be no one to serve.

The world that recovers from the coronavirus will be different. Most small businesses will stop operating. Many people will be out of work. Therefore, governments will need to create a completely new system of work, pay, and of keeping people occupied.

Payments, according to Kabbalah, should be made in the form of scholarships because through the Internet and TV people will be engaged in an integral understanding of the world, and the correct relationships between themselves, which the science of Kabbalah teaches them. In this way, they will begin to build the right society.

Seventy to eighty percent of the population will be engaged in this, including schoolchildren and retirees. And only twenty percent or less will be employed in manufacturing so that we can maintain our level of existence in a normal way.

This may take more than one coronavirus, many more. But in the end, we will arrive at this.

Question: Why should small businesses that provide service to each other stop working? There is a law “go and earn from each other.” Or do you propose a model of totalitarian communism where the government pays according to the needs of each resident of its state?

Answer: I am not offering any model. All I am saying is that people will not be able to start millions of small businesses again. They will no longer have the desire to do so. They won’t! The desire to acquire gifts, costume jewelry, gemstones, fashionable clothes, or to fly around the world—that is all transitory. People will gradually stop craving this. You will see for yourself.

No one is going to put any pressure on anyone. Our development will result in the fact that we will stop wanting it. We will not need the tinsel that we play around with in life. We will face more interesting, serious, global issues that need to be addressed radically.

Are People Ready For Spiritual Change?

laitman_961.2Question: It looks like the majority of people are not yet ready for the perception of highly spiritual, abstract values. Maybe it’s worth considering publicizing some kind of everyday code of conduct that could be understood by most people?

Answer: I understand you and to some extent I agree with you. But when big problems fall upon us and the whole world suffers from them, then naturally an understanding arises that we are in a global, integral, reciprocal connection, and we will have to do something about it.

But people cannot say whether they are ready or not. They will never be ready for spiritual change. Never ever! They will not succeed. But life will make them do it. I think it will still happen in this generation.

There is no goodness in the world. The Creator asserts that He created only evil. Our task is to see only egoism in ourselves and in everything, and to hate it so much that its opposite side will appear—goodness, spirituality. And thus in all thoughts and feelings to see evil and to build the upper world out of it!

New Life 1249 – The Difficulty Of Making A Change

New Life 1249 – The Difficulty Of Making A Change
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi

A person needs to get used to changes in life since if he doesn’t, it will be as though he is dead. The coronavirus era is inviting us to make changes and it is up to us whether the changes will be for the the better or worse. The virus requires a psychological change in us so that we will begin to think positively about each other and will build a new society. It is here to improve us so that we will be more considerate of each other and realize that we are living in an integral system. If we don’t develop a good connection with each other, no medicine will save us from viruses. The confinement period is over, but because we have not changed our level of consideration of each other for the better, the plague continues.

We are used to comparing ourselves and looking down on others. We need to adopt three new social habits: to relate positively to others because we are connected, to develop love, and to show others that loving others is good.

Opposition To Unity, Part 6

laitman_622.01If There is no Rapprochement from Heart to Heart

Question: When there is a strong society in which values ​​such as mutual guarantee, solidarity, and unity are at the head of all priorities, then there are no problems with assimilation and mixed marriages. And when all this falls, then it is necessary to keep people at least in an external framework in order to preserve them as a nation?

Answer: When you fall into egoism and cease to feel the upper world, the highest connections between all, then you need earthly connections.

Question: Has this solidarity turned Jews into a nation?

Answer: The community created by Abraham rested on the bonds “love your neighbor as yourself.” No external framework was needed because people felt connected with each other anyway.

Question: It turns out that then there were no commandments?

Answer: Love your neighbor as yourself—this is the commandment, and the only one. Therefore, it is called the main commandment of the Torah. Nothing else is needed.

Question: But when solidarity began to disappear, then the commandments appeared that are fulfilled at the physical level within the external framework?

Answer: Yes. Do not go there, do not do this, do not harm others, etc. That is, the laws of commutation between people appeared because they could no longer approach each other from heart to heart.

#Israel will experience the pandemic more than anyone because, according to Kabbalah, it is to blame for it. Redemption is possible only if Jews aspire toward a good connection, “Love the neighbor”—otherwise it will become increasingly obvious how the Creator leads the nation toward correction by the path of suffering, which they are choosing for themselves.

From time to time, it is necessary to activate within the feeling of responsibility for actualizing the spiritual gene (Reshimo) you were given. What are you going to do with it? How will you actualize it? After all, you are responsible precisely for its actualization
