#Coronavirus is not a blow but a push toward our growth to facilitate our #development, to bring us together through unity—to perception of the upper force of nature. We have to be connected to it. This has nothing to do with religion. Only then will our life get better.
From Twitter, 9/24/20
Answer: You will see everything. On one hand, the wisdom of Kabbalah is a science that is revealed to everyone, and on the other hand, it is concealed and is a secret.
The question is how a science can be a secret. Could it be concealed like the development of a dangerous weapon or dangerous poison is concealed? And why has it been a secret until now?
The secret is in the actual wisdom of Kabbalah. If you show a child a formula to build an atom bomb, for example, what will he be able to do with this formula? Nothing. It is the same with the wisdom of Kabbalah. When you are given a book that contains great information and are told to read, you will not be able to do anything with this information.
Yet if you wish to attain what is in the book, you will have to change yourself in order to understand it. When you attain this knowledge, you will already be like the Kabbalist who wrote the book and will not be able to do anything bad with the formula that tells you about the great forces of nature. You will not be able to play with them as you wish.
This means that only if you are on the level of nature can you reveal it, and if you are not, you will not reveal anything. So a Kabbalist cannot harm anyone. It is because the moment he falls from his level, he immediately forgets everything, and can no longer control this matter. This matter fills him according to his spiritual state.
From KabTV’s “Fundamentals of Kabbalah” 11/11/18
A mother’s heart is located at the central point of the entire universe, both corporeal and spiritual. After all, it is from this very point that spiritual and corporeal birth occurs. There is nothing stronger than a mother’s heart; it is the most sensitive, most important point in all of reality. The Creator created a desire, which is the basis of a mother’s heart.
Therefore, if women begin to think at least a little about unity, they will already touch this central point of the entire universe from where the birth of all of humanity, the common soul, began. The world will come to correction only through a woman.
A woman has tremendous power that gives birth, develops, and organizes. And vice versa, if a woman does not participate in this correction, then she turns into a cause of contention, into a place of estrangement and evil. Therefore, I really hope that women will unite and bring peace, tranquility and unity to humanity.
From the Women’s Lesson 8/29/20, “Bnei Baruch Rule Toward Humanity”
News reports show the world is heading to the abyss, sinking lower and lower every day and urgently needs a genuine cure. But there is no doubt that such a vaccine cannot be made in a laboratory, and unfortunately, the epidemic will only intensify. It is not yet clear that the world changing in a good direction.
We must feel responsible for the whole of reality and exactly for that we should ask the Creator for forgiveness. After all, we understand that everything depends on us. The Creator has brought us closer to Himself and is waiting for us to ask Him for the whole world as the supreme ruler. He wants us to be a conduit through which light will flow between Him and the whole world, but we are still unable to ask Him for it.
So, we ask forgiveness for this because today we are already under an obligation to implement it. We ask forgiveness not for past crimes, but for what we must do now as we recognize that we are responsible for the state of the world. Thus, we have what to repent before the Creator for since we have brought the world to such a terrible state in which it is today.
If we had acted correctly, even before the coronavirus pandemic, before all these problems, we would have attracted good forces to the world, and the world would have turned in a good direction.
We apologize for neglecting our mission, our connection with the Creator. We do not ask for forgiveness; rather, we want to be corrected: let the Creator give us wisdom, feelings, and bring us closer to Him so that we can correct the world. As it says: “From the love of the created beings to the love of the Creator.”
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson” 9/15/20, “What Is Preparation for Selichot (Forgiveness)”
Rosh HaShanah is the time to ask the Creator for forgiveness for one’s crimes. That is, I feel that I do not sense the importance and the greatness of the Creator, and for this I apologize. After all, if I felt the Creator as great and important, then, of course, I would behave differently. It turns out that I only lack the feeling of the Creator.
And therefore, I ask: “Let me feel You, and I will become different!” This is what a man should say to the Creator; this is a correct request and a correct apology. Why do I commit crimes? Because I lack the feeling of the Creator, which is called faith. There is no feeling of the Creator, there is no faith, and therefore, there is no one to stop me. I cannot act otherwise because if the Creator does not rule over me, then the evil inclination, egoism, rules.
Therefore, I ask the Creator to rule over me. This is my main request after which we come to Rosh HaShanah, we come to the king, that is, we want to put Him to reign over us.
I want to repent for all my sins, that is, to know and feel everything that interferes with my correction. I am asking the Creator to open my eyes and let me feel where the crime is and where the commandment is so that I understand where I fulfill His commandments: to bestow, to love, to unite, and where I do the opposite.
After all, now I do not feel this in every moment of my life. And if I did, I would certainly correct myself. The problem is that I do not feel the Creator, the force of bestowal, against which I could check myself. It is with this that I turn to the Creator and demand that He give me the opportunity to check myself against the force of bestowal, and then I will never commit a crime.
We do not recall the past and do not ask forgiveness for it. I must cry not about what happened but about the fact that I do not strive for correction and do not demand from the Creator to help me in this. I want to move forward and not delve in the past, shedding tears over what I did.
Did I really do something? I did nothing. The Creator did everything. And He did it on purpose so that I now know what I have to fix. I take this evil, this crime, that has just been revealed, and start to correct it. All my striving is forward, not backward. This is the difference!
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 9/16/20, “What Is Preparation for Selichot (Forgiveness)”
Medium published my new article “For the World Economic Forum to Realize “The Great Reset,” They Must Reset the Ego”
This week, the World Economic Forum is convening with a lofty goal in mind. In its statement, it declares: “There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.” The forum wants this initiative to “offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons.”
The initiative will fail. Since the members of the forum have no idea what causes the virus, they will not be able to curb its spreading or make decisions about the future that will be good for all of humanity.
The ego is the driving force behind every plight that’s afflicting the world, and there are numerous right now. As a result, it will not help to tackle this or that problem. Cut out the root cause and you have dried out the vital force behind all the plagues. Keep the ego burning, and you will bring on yourself more blows, and more painful than today’s.
The World Economic Forum has no clue how to curb the ego, or even that the ego is the cause of Covid-19. We needn’t do a reset for the world; there is nothing wrong with it. We need to do a reset for ourselves, since everything that’s wrong with the world is coming from within us.
First and foremost, we need to teach ourselves to see the benefits we can derive from other people’s success. We need to revolutionize everything, from social media to politics, to entertainment, to schooling. The values we promote through every platform must condone solidarity and show how we enrich each other precisely through our differences. We must show that just as nature thrives only because of its diversity, so we can thrive only if we keep our societies diverse and dynamic. And for this, we must put aside our egos and look at each other from a supporting angle rather than a demoralizing one.
The ego is literally killing us. We must not only reset it, but install a correcting code that will neutralize its destructive operations. If we don’t hurry, it will eliminate us in the most literal sense of the word.
Question: The pandemic caused a new violent outburst of anti-Semitism. There is more and more dislike of the Jews. Something like a new protocol of the elders of Zion is being released, which is purported to state that Jews allegedly are seeking to conquer the world and have resorted to using the coronavirus to prepare a market for the sale of a vaccine in order to reap colossal profits.
Is this always inevitable in times of crisis?
Answer: This will be until the final correction. If we do not bring the correction to the world, the world turns to us and demands this correction, but in their own words.
We must understand that if we do not actively correct our world, that is, the connection between all the people, we by ourselves cause the negative attitude of the world to us, and naturally, we will be in trouble.
Question: Is it us who should become pioneers of unity to begin this unification?
Answer: Of course. No one can do it besides us. This is our work, this is our mission, this is what we must do. If we do not do that, we are offered other “work.”
Question: Were Jews brought in this world solely for this work? Not for progress, not for Nobel Laureates, not for discoveries?
Answer: No! These are all by products that nobody needs. They just annoy people. Everything that was invented in the world was done by the Jews, and this did not do anything good for the world.
In order for the world to unite and be one, a group of people was selected from this world little by little from all its places and corners. These people must absolutely clearly participate in the connection of all humanity. There is no escaping this!
Question: Will it always so, at any time?
Answer: Not always. I hope that this will end soon. That is, either toward happiness by the stick or, conversely, with honor and respect.
There is hope. Even greater than before. Then everything will calm down.
Question: Will the enemies and the worst haters become friends?
Answer: Absolutely! They will understand the reason for their hatred. They will say, “We were right to hate you! It was because you did not do your work, your function, your purpose. Now, of course, we love you!”
Question: Do you think that these who are shaking with hatred for Jews will become their closest friends?
Answer: Of course! This will happen. All the haters really will become loving, close ones, helpers, friends, and associates in bringing humanity to unification.
From KabTV’s “News with Dr. Michael Laitman” 7/13/20
My article in Newsmax: “Moving Out Over Virus, Never to Return”
All over the world, people are moving out from the coronavirus-struck city centers into the suburbs and beyond, to the country or even to different countries. Within a few months from the outbreak of the pandemic, people have gotten used to working from home, making the necessity to live close to the office redundant. As a result, thousands of apartments in the once high-end neighborhoods in big cities around the world are standing vacant.
The shift is more than temporary. People will have no reason to return, other than for possible recreational activities, but even these will probably die out in the big cities. The shift we are witnessing the world over is nothing short of a transformation of human civilization.
It is not just work, but everything is becoming virtual. Banks and financial services, government offices, software and high-tech companies, and most other products and services are moving to the online arena. And where physical presence is required, drone deliveries will replace much of today’s necessary rides.
But people will not be happier. On the contrary, the ill-feelings spreading across America and around the world will only spread further and deeper into people’s hearts. COVID-19 has exposed our mistreatment of each other, our disregard, callousness, and venom that we harbor toward anyone we disagree with. Those who will hide in their country homes will stay there for fear of the violence in cities and on the roads, and will feel very isolated and alone. Those who will stay in the cities will be afraid to step out of their homes even to get groceries.
In that situation, people will have no choice but to start looking for real answers to their problems. When they do, they will realize that those who have been telling them that their misery is caused by the president (whomever he may be in two months), or a certain party, or a particular policy, or some injustice, may have been correct, but missed the root cause. And without finding the root, cutting off the shoots does nothing to ease the pain.
As people examine their situation, they will realize that there is one common root to all their plights: broken human relations. They will see that our troubles all stem from our shattered relations with each other. We have turned our society into a battlefield of clashing sects divided by race, affluence, religion, political affiliation and generally anything that can set people apart and pit them against each other.
Our misery does not stem from a certain leader, party or any other authority. It stems from the fact that I don’t like and I can’t trust my neighbor. In many cases, we feel estranged even from our own families. When this is the situation, it makes no difference who is in power; we will always feel miserable. Conversely, if we have a great, tight-knit family, and great neighbors that we like and can trust, we won’t really mind who is in power and what they do; we will feel safe and happy in our communities and families.
When people protest against injustices, they vent their frustration and anger. Their causes might often be noble and worthy, but the anger they express in their protests does not stem from their indignation at the injustice inflicted by the authorities; it mainly expresses their disconnection from society. Otherwise, they would not be able to torch other people’s businesses and homes, shattering their livelihoods and beating them up to protest injustice.
The social breakdown is happening all over the western world and beyond. In America, however, it is the most conspicuous, for now. If America can cope with it, so will other countries. If America doesn’t, others will have a much harder time succeeding.
The emptying cities of America are a red alert, a call to establish solidarity, care, and mutual responsibility in society. There will always be different opinions in society because the nature of human beings is to have their own opinions. The question is not how we make everyone see that we are right, but how to make everyone feel like one family again, or at least, like one neighborhood, where a good neighborhood is good for everyone!
Remark: North Korea has declared war on intimate relationships between teenagers. The head of North Korea Kim Jong Un declared intimate relationships in adolescence was treasonous and announced plans to make it a punishable offense.
According to the head of the DPRK, sex between teenagers is “immoral sexual deviancy,” and it is caused by “decadent capitalist influences.” Control began in schools.
My Comment: Good education is not built on violence. In addition, today young people between the ages of 14 and 15 are such teenagers, if you can call them teenagers, that in our time people were at the age of 20. Of course, it is very difficult to keep today’s youth from all kinds of sexual relationships because everything is open. They have the Internet, but people are still people..
Question: What should replace their fervor that naturally pushes them toward each other?
Answer: I think that it cannot be replaced because the desire for sexual satisfaction is very strong in a man, especially in a teenager. Of course, I would give them a very serious education.
Question: What would you teach them?
Answer: Everything! Anatomy, physiology, psychology, sexology, what a man and a woman are, what birth is. I would definitely teach and show everything through all sorts of movies. There is nothing to hide. That only makes it worse. They will be busy with it even more, and they will acquire all kinds of misconceptions. The forbidden fruit is sweet. I would definitely open all this.
Question: Where would they come to as a result?
Answer: Where they are now, but in a normal form, without any distortion. They would know how they are built, what nature requires of us, what our psychology is, so that we behave correctly, that we are pleasant people for ourselves and for others, so that we are not ashamed of all this.
Just raise it from the level of secrecy to the level of frankness. You will see that all this has a completely different taste, a completely different attitude.
Question: Would they come to the correct connection?
Answer: Yes, there must be a correct connection. It still does not exist today. Still today sexology, anatomy, physiology, and psychology of correct sexual intercourse are not taught correctly.
Question: Would you include into this understanding what friendship is and what love is?
Answer: Yes, it “clothes” in this. Then both friendship and love will be human components. Human, not animal! If I am hungry, should I eat? So, I should have this as well. This is what my body requires, what can I do?! I think only about this. Food and then sex, that is all.
Question: Would friendship and love then clothe in this base?
Answer: This does not relate to physiology that much. Then you need to understand how to put it together.
