My Thoughts On Twitter 8/19/20

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Humanity has come close to correcting and getting rid of egoism. We will no longer pursue material egoistic values. We will only value the connection between us. No one will harm anyone, just take care of each other.

All problems arise only to lead us to mutual guarantee. By doing so, we restore the unity in which we existed before the breakage of the single soul of ADAM, and to which we must all consciously return today. Therefore, getting closer is the only cure for the Coronavirus.

All nature acts according to the law of mutual guarantee, otherwise it cannot exist. This is insured by natural instinct. But people who are above the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels are obliged to fulfill the guarantee of their own conscious efforts and mutual help.

The crisis has resulted in a slower economy, increased unemployment, lower income—life is shrinking to a sensible size. The new lifestyle will establish a more rational consciousness. We won’t recognize ourselves in a year! But it is better to strive for the basics of rational nature on our own…

It’s a pity that countries do not understand where we’re headed—fewer jobs! We should start preparing for half of the working population having to stay home. How and what to do with them? Organize courses to raise the new society, with a diploma and provision of a scholarship.

We have found ourselves in a new, fairy-tale world of absolute deception, the world of lies. This is how the Internet presents the surrounding world to us. Nothing we check can help us find the truth. Our entire egoistic nature has overflown out of us and filled up virtual space and there is no room left there for the human being…

Any governmental assistance program, financial or otherwise, will only exacerbate the transition toward a new economy and social order. We must retain only the essential jobs and provide all households with income for their essential needs and introduce compulsory education on connection and unity.

The lack of jobs, and the mass protests that will follow as a result will lay the foundation for understanding that the process we’re undergoing is a natural transition to a new society. This is happening partially in the West, but the stubborn Israelis are, as usual, late to the party (Am Kshe Oref – a stiff-necked people). We’ll see the light come winter!

In the spiritual, hatred does not cancel love, but elevates it to the next degree. Both hatred and love come from the Creator. And love grows on account of hatred, in two parallel lines. And joy manifests from them both—in the middle line!

If we begin to sing in the heart, the world will instantly heal itself of all ailments and problems: internal, external, psychological. The heart sings, yearning to unite with everyone, so that together we could turn to the Creator to help us be together, between ourselves and with Him.

We had a wonderful congress. It’s clear that our approach allows for unification in these new conditions. Let’s keep using it! I am infinitely grateful to each one of the participants. We’re going to start planning the next congress—at a higher level still  ourselves determining its degree!

As we draw closer to winter, we’re going to start seeing closures and bankruptcies in retail and service industries, as well as other related unnecessary sectors. Gradually, everything should constrict down to just the essentials. As for people and governments, they must accept it as inevitable and assist with these changes.

Adhesion is achieved precisely through the unification of plus and minus.
You cannot come to adhesion without hatred. What else could serve as the foundation upon which to build unity, if not rejection? What we need is for my thoughts and desires to enter the space between your molecules and weld us together…

The virus will not relent. Increasingly greater problems will manifest until mankind realizes that nature is forcing us toward integral behavior: universal unification with rational consumption, work only to meet necessities while focusing primarily on education and growing the bond between everyone.

Only one Kli (ten) was created. The broader circles (the world Kabbalistic group and all humankind) is the same ten, only in higher resolution, allowing for greater detail and intricacies of being in adhesion with the Creator.

In the material world, a person can be smart and influential. But in the spiritual world, his connection with the ten is of much higher importance, and it gives tremendous spiritual fulfillment. The number of different qualities acquired through connection with others determines the capacity of my spiritual vessel (Kli).

In the material world, the size of a vessel is measured in quantity: one liter, two, a thousand… The greater the vessel’s capacity, the larger it is. In the spiritual world, however, the size of a vessel is determined not by its capacity, but by the quantity of different qualities that determine its resolution: the number of pixels.

In our world, ability is determined by one’s wealth of knowledge, but in the spiritual world, by the number of parts united together, to the degree that differing opinions unite to achieve a common goal. It is precisely this difference and effort to achieve a common goal that determines the size of a spiritual vessel.

The #coronavirus is the solution. Unless we begin caring for others instead of ourselves, the virus will keep raging more and more, “suffocating” us. I must think of how I care for the health of every person, regardless of how distant or near they are.

We don’t know how to arrange life in these new conditions. The blows haven’t even really begun, but we’re already in complete disarray, trying to maintain our existence via the old methods, holding out naive hopes that we’ll be able to go back to the past. Humanity must understand that there’s no going back.

I mustn’t renounce my opinion because I received it from the Creator. I need only admit that the other, opposite opinion has the right to exist alongside my own. Thanks to us creating a space not instead of myself but next to myself, in so doing we make the Creator.

Nature and the Creator are one and the same. Nature’s laws are equal to the Creator’s commandments. We exist inside an absolute law, which is called nature. If we abide by it, we feel good. If we don’t, we harm ourselves and our environment.

We will undoubtedly have to develop toward greater mutual connection. We have received only the first global blow, but it has already demolished the entire foundation upon which our lives over the past several centuries has been built: economy, education, culture. There is no going back to the past. Blows loom ahead…

New Life 1265 – The End Of The Capitalistic Era?

New Life 1265 – The End Of The Capitalistic Era?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

The younger generation is no longer interested in attaining financial wealth and engaging in the competitive, capitalistic system. Nature is fighting against it more and more as well. Capitalism was fueled by the growth of the human ego and has become like cancer, destroying the planet and its resources. We are evolving to a new, circular form of mutual connection based on spiritual capital. Spiritual capital is the sense of unlimited freedom and purpose in doing good for others. It is a level of human development above the egoistic, animal level. Each one will have what they need to sustain themselves and will want to give and share the rest. When we are there for one another in equality, the entire world will exist for the benefit of every one.

Why Is The Material World So Different From The Spiritual?

260.01Why is there such a vast distance, such a discrepancy, between material life and spiritual? The fact is that these are two different worlds, a completely different form of existence, a different goal. Two different programs operate in them: work for the sake of receiving and work for the sake of bestowal.

There is nothing more opposite to each other than these two principles. We are trying to somehow connect these worlds with our mind. But actually, it is possible to comprehend them only by faith above knowledge, that is, just above egoistic reason.

laitman_961.2Society of Unnecessary Professions

Question: What should a person realize in the era of coronavirus?

Answer: A person must realize that he has survived only the first blow of nature. Many more blows are needed to correct society, and they will follow. As a result, society will not remain the same. This will mainly concern the employment of people.

The fact is that we have created a society of completely unnecessary professions. In our post-industrial world, a huge number of superfluous people have appeared, and therefore, a lot of completely unnecessary occupations, professions, and enterprises arose. We need to understand that we are in the integral sphere of nature, which strives for optimization, and it will put pressure on us so that all unnecessary professions disappear.

Looking, for example, at animal nature, we know that some number of animals must die off, the others must develop, depending on what conditions appear or disappear in nature. The same goes for us. We are part of nature, so it plays with us, sets certain new parameters for us, thereby reducing or increasing the population, occupation, and so on.

Now, under the influence of the coronavirus, there is a great acceleration in the development of human society. A lot of people don’t work and, in principle, they don’t need to return to work.

Those enterprises that are really needed have acted, are operating, and will continue to operate. And only 5% OF the service sector that we have created over the past seventy years is needed.

Therefore, there will be no need for it, and it will no longer return to its previous activity. The bulk of the population employed in the service sector will simply be left without work. And here we need to think about what to do with people with unnecessary professions.

Managing Stress, Part 5

552.03How to Manage Stress?

Question: There are many ways to manage stress, depending on the factor that causes it, such as breathing exercises, meditation, physical activity, cooking, breeding pets, or singing in a choir. All of this somehow distracts people and saves them from stress.

Many advise crying, keeping a diary, or spending time in the company of loved ones.

Yet, we see that even though all these tips help, it is only to a certain extent and only when stressful situations are local in nature. However, when there is a massive pandemic or some other cataclysm, other methods are needed. What can you recommend?

Answer: I do not see eliminating the source of the problem in these methods. All of them only help to somehow calm down a little. It turns out that the cause remains, but the person as if takes a sedative and now does not feel the cause, or feels it in a half or a quarter of its strength.

This is not a solution. Especially if this is a global issue concerning all the inhabitants of the Earth, who after a while will no longer know where to find food or how to exist.

Question: What will help them?

Answer: Only the revelation of the source of this phenomenon: what is the reason for such pressure on all of humanity. After all, nothing happens in nature for nothing, everything has its own reason.

The search for this reason itself is already the beginning of the cure. Just as we investigate a disease and try to find a cure for it, here as well we must find out why this is happening. Only now we are investigating not bacteria, animals, or our incorrect interactions with some parts of nature, but rather the meaning of nature, what it wants to push us to.
