Everyone Has Their Own Soul

514.02Question: Based on what do you think that is necessary to change schools and the approach to education?

Answer: I proceed from Kabbalah. My basis is Kabbalah. I see the ongoing process and its next stage also, I understand their purpose. Therefore, if we do something with violence, then everything will turn out bad for us. We have no right to do this to our children!

I personally left regular school and attended evening school for the last few years. Also, at university for the last two years I attended evening classes, not the daytime.

So, I was free. I could not bear that pressure! I never put pressure on my children.

My eldest daughter, who attended a religious school, said in the eighth grade that she wanted to be a geneticist. I agreed for her to go to a regular school. She graduated from it, received a diploma, and entered university. She is now in charge of the genetics laboratory at the Tel HaShomer hospital in Israel.

My second daughter graduated from school with a design bias. I remember the beautiful medieval dresses she sewed for her exam. Then, literally in the last year of school, she became interested in Kabbalah. Without my intervention. She entered Tel Aviv University’s Department of Philosophy and Kabbalah.

That is, I let the children develop as they wished. You cannot put pressure on children! It is said: “Raise the youth along his path.”(Prov 22:6). Each has his own soul. How can I push?!

Question: But did this come to you after you began to study Kabbalah?

Answer: If I had not studied Kabbalah, none of this would have happened, of course.

No Pleasure Greater Than Reconciling Opposites

232.031Comment: You said that reconciling the opposites is the greatest pleasure in the world. There is no greater pleasure.

Answer: Yes. It is said that “There is no greater pleasure than reconciling opposites.”

Contradiction is the state when you cannot decide anything, you are as if squeezed by pliers. You do not know where the truth is, where the lie is, you do not know how to behave. Yet, you must resolve this contradiction.

When it is resolved, it feels like the greatest pleasure.

Question: Where is the Creator in this picture?

Answer: When a person asks the Creator to help him reconcile contradictions, then it is in their reconciliation that he attains the Creator. That is why they are given to us.

The opposite states are intentionally included in nature in order for us to come to such a feeling that we need their common source—the Creator. Then we turn to Him so that He Himself would reconcile these contradictions for us.

Breathe The Light Of Life Into Each Other

507.03For the people of our world, the rule “love your neighbor as yourself” is so disgusting, boring, already tried, and does not attract anyone.

In reality, love your neighbor implies a state where we unite together like small dots, small elements of the universe, into one single mosaic, into one single picture, gathered into one system, and we start working with each other in it like cells in a common body.

And then, from a dead organism that we are today in separation, we turn into a living organism.

If you cut off pieces from the body and divide it into elements, it dies. Therefore, you must collect them. To the extent that you try to do this, the Creator breathes into you the light of life, the spirit of life.

It turns out that we need to yearn for each other, for a universal mutual connection. We will thus restore our common body, our common soul, by connecting with each other.

Question: How do we yearn for this?

Answer: On one hand, we are driven by evil, emptiness, disappointment in this existence, fear of what will happen tomorrow, and disappointment with the kind of world we leave to our children.

On the other hand, from this emptiness inside, an aspiration for something appears. A person begins to feel: “I have been pulled toward something! There is a vector in me that works that looks for something.”

This was not the case before. This is happening right now, in our generation. Together with emptiness, with general depression, there is also a quest, an aspiration for something. A person begins to realize that all this is not as it is and that there is something, somewhere, waiting especially for me.

Our current state has been specially adjusted for us so that we can get out of it and move on. Therefore, our generation is a transition.

Feel Responsible For Everyone

117Question: In order to feel the network of connection between us, we must be in a state of mutual guarantee. What is this feeling when I am responsible for others?

Answer: I am responsible for others means that I must fulfill my part in this network as if I am fully responsible for it.

This means that each of us from his own point, from his own node, in this network is in control of it. It is controlled through me, through you, through him, through everyone. But it is done on the basis of his specific personal point. Therefore, everyone is responsible for it, meaning, for the entire world.

Every person feels this. As he progresses to this state, he begins to feel that he is attaining this network, this soul, and it is his inner state.

At the same time, each one is responsible for gathering everyone together into one single network of connection, and for spreading the quality of bestowal and love through this network.

Question: Does it mean that I am responsible for the revelation of the Creator to other people?

Answer: Yes.

Question: What are the states that are accompanied by the feeling of the Creator?

Answer: Warm, mutual states: a feeling of eternity, perfection, mutual support, mutual care. That is, this is completely opposite to what we usually feel in our world.

Question: What if I cannot be responsible all the time?

Answer: This is attained gradually and is called the process of correcting a person.

Question: I see that other people are hurting, there are diseases and wars. Does it mean that I feel that I am responsible for this? This is scary.

Answer: Whether this is scary or not is not the question. It is about whether this is true or not. When a person begins to comprehend that the network of common connection depends on him, it means that at the same time he has the opportunity to feed it with the good force.
