Cycles Of Souls

962.2The cycles of souls is a mysterious topic with many different opinions. There are religions that believe a person lives many lives—once in one form, then in another. Is there really such a thing as a circle of souls?

Yes, it exists, as it is written in Kabbalistic books, in the Ari’s book The Gate of Reincarnations and in The Book of Zohar. But this is not at all what ordinary people imagine, people who think that the reincarnation of souls means that my soul moves into another body that lived a hundred years ago. In fact, reincarnation of souls do not refer to bodies at all.

Everything goes through cycles—any desire. And all desires are combined into one system, called Adam, and it includes all levels: still, vegetative, animate, and human. And each desire circulates, that is, it develops in stages, affecting all other desires, uniting into tens, hundreds, thousands, etc. This is called the circles of souls.

But this does not mean that in a previous life a person could have been a cat, a flower, or a stone. The cycles of souls do not relate to the change of the outer, biological shell of flesh and blood.

The soul is a particle of the divine from above, the force of bestowal and love in a person. And if there is no such force in a person, then there is no soul yet. All systems of the material world in which we live today and feel ourselves in a physical body do not belong to the reincarnation of souls.

But it is good that the topic of the cycles of souls is covered with a veil of secrecy. This stops a person, forces him to be more restrained in relation to others. After all, he worries about the next life in this world and in the future world and then treats others better. And in fact, doing good deeds toward others, toward everyone, and being a good person is by far the safest option.

But all stories about who the person was in his past life are a complete deception. The circuits of souls do not refer to our life but to the life of the soul, which an ordinary person does not have. He must work very hard to reach the state of circulation of the soul and see how he can improve his desire with the help of the Masach, reflected light, coupling with striking, and begin to ascend step by step.

This is called the cycle of souls (Neshama), the highest light, because the lights of Haya and Yechida do not enter the spiritual vessel until the end of correction.

In order to achieve the circulation of souls, one must first develop a soul in oneself, the desire to bestow. The desire to bestow for the sake of bestowal is called the soul. This is the willingness to bestow to everyone, to do good to everyone, to get more and more out of egoism. And then I will find that there are cycles in this process because each time I renew my egoistic desire, I can correct it and perform even more actions of bestowal, love, and unity.

So, through cycles, I reach love for the whole world by acquiring the property of universal love in all my desires. And this is called the end of correction (Gmar Tikun). The whole desire to receive pleasure that I had, broken and egoistic, is now corrected, and I see, understand, and feel the whole reality. It turns out that the whole world really belongs to me!

Translation Of The Torah—A Source Of Distortion

559Question: What is your opinion about the translation of the Torah into Greek?

Answer: The Torah cannot be translated into any language at all because its translation always becomes a source of all kinds of distortions.

Hebrew in its inner meaning cannot be adequately translated into another language because it implies completely different, spiritual concepts that do not exist in other languages because they do not have a spiritual root.

Question: But we are talking about the 3rd century BC. At that time, there were sages who understood this. Why did they still allow the translation of the Torah?

Answer: What do you mean “allowed”? They themselves were no longer at a high spiritual level so they could not stop anything. The masses turned away from them because there was a huge revelation of egoism, and that was the end of it.

The spreading of Kabbalah to the masses, which spanned from the 10th century BC to the 1st century AD, has ended. Then came all sorts of religious interpretations. This is where Judaism in its modern form appeared.

Comment: In Judea, the Greek language practically replaced Hebrew and Aramaic. Even the leaders of the Jewish people wrote in Greek.

My Response: Of course. If you follow someone, if you think someone is more progressive, then that’s it.

Comment: The famous historian Josephus Flavius wrote that the Greek king Ptolemy II wanted to establish his kingdom upon the law of the Torah: “Love your neighbor as yourself” and was ready to pay any price for it. But when he saw that Jews started to fight among themselves, Greece turned against them.

My Response: Yes, the Jews themselves showed an example that this is impossible to do. It became clear that laws of bestowal and love cannot be spread among people in a direct way.

Euthanasia Or Must A Person Die By Himself

565.02Question: The Spanish Parliament passed a law allowing people over the age of eighteen who suffer unbearably from incurable diseases to voluntarily die.

“‘Today we have become a country that is more humane, fairer and freer,’ Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez tweeted just minutes after the vote. The euthanasia law, widely demanded by society, has finally become a reality.” (

How do you feel about this voluntary departure of a person from life?

Answer: My attitude to it is this: a person must die by himself.

Question: Despite the suffering and all that he is experiencing?

Answer: When Baal HaSulam was asked about this, he said that a person has no right to interfere in this: how to leave and when to leave is not his business. And even if he has the opportunity, of course, it’s none of his business.

You must continue to exist, no matter how bad you feel. Take your medication, do whatever you want! But in no other way.

My father was dying for a very long time. And the only thing I agreed with the doctors was to give him painkillers. But, in principle, if you understand Baal HaSulam correctly, then painkillers are also not good.

About myself, I can’t say that I have such confidence in myself, that if such huge problems come, huge suffering, that I would agree to continue to suffer and worry. I’m not sure for myself. How can a person be confident about this?

Comment: How can you cut to the truth all the time! Like that in the face! You say that a person is weak. And you even say that about yourself!

My Response: Of course, I’m weak! Who are we?! Midges! Who is a person other than the desire to enjoy?!

I’m sure any person you just pinch will immediately agree to everything. In short, a person is a desire to enjoy.

So, we will live, and what is there next, how God will send it.

Everything In One Person

Question: Why in the parable of “The King and the Slave” does the king discover a flaw in his plan and instead of correcting the plan asks his minister to disguise himself as a rebel in the kingdom?

Answer: The plans, which the ministers design and prepare, are derived from our egoistic impulses. Which is to say, we are the authors of these plans.

The “ministers” are my inner characteristics with which it seems to me that I can run the world. But when I don’t succeed, I acknowledge my mistake, change my plans, act in another, wiser manner, and approach the Creator that way.

Everything that is mentioned in the parable of the king, the servant, and the ministers happens in a person himself. The Creator, the servant, and the ministers are found in a person, and the struggle also happens in a person. The Torah is only talking about one person.
