My Thoughts On Twitter 10/5/21

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Nature, with its aspiration to reciprocal, good, in unification, will compel us to be corrected, if not by the good path, then by the path of #suffering – behold, it is already starting by the #winter of 2022. Only the quality of connections needs to change, without severing them.
#EU #brexit

On one hand, breaking free from the obligations of the #European market, as Great Britain did; but on the other hand, this is escaping connections and hence against the tendency of humanity’s general unification, Gmar Tikkun.

Ten As One

938.04I cannot increase my desire, but only add the desires of others to it. This will be called the growth of desire when I learn from one, another, then a third.

All the growth of the desire is because we are going back to the one soul—Adam HaRishon (The first man). The more we attach the parts that broke as a result of the shattering, the sin of the tree of knowledge, the greater the desire becomes. If this desire includes ten parts, then we become as one.

We do not simply merge into one, but remain separate parts united by one force that surrounds us in an embrace and brings us together. Ten are united by one intention, one common goal, and each annuls oneself for the sake of connecting with the others.

Within them, the power of self-annulment, which is called restriction, screen, and reflected light, and their common desire to bestow to the Creator begins to work.

Then a sense of the upper force is manifested within these ten because they have created conditions for the revelation of the Creator among them. The Creator does not come to them from somewhere outside, but is generated from within the forces of connection on top of the forces of rejection.

Become The Truth

79.01Life flows from the inside to the outside. Following this thought, you will become truth yourself. (Folk wisdom)

This is correct. It is necessary to perceive yourself and the world around you correctly, so that you would attain such a contact with it, in unison, that what is right and beautiful in this life would become your ideal.

Question: Is this what is called seeing it from the inside?

Answer: Yes.

New Life 1319 – Caring For The Health Of Workers

New Life 1319 – Caring For The Health Of Workers
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

People are finally starting to value the health of workers and to understand that health requires positive relationships and a good atmosphere. It is hard to create a good atmosphere at work because human nature is egoistic and we tend to criticize and dominate each other. People are willing to struggle their whole lives in order to reach a higher status in society, even if it ruins their health.

Competition should instead be aimed at fulfilling one’s maximum potential for the good of society as a whole. Management should guide people to respect one another and connect.

When Will The Point In The Heart Be Turned On?

627.2Question: Is the yearning to study the wisdom of Kabbalah natural, innate?

Answer: The yearning for the wisdom of Kabbalah appears in a person according to his current life and whether he feels a desire to reveal the Creator in this life.

If his soul has already attained this state, he feels the need for it and reaches the study of the wisdom of Kabbalah. But if his soul is not developed enough yet, then he surely lives his current life in peace, but will reach this level gradually either in this life or in the next life. So there is nothing that can stop any of us here.

However if a person has such an opportunity, he has to seize it. This is how we can hasten our reincarnations and attain the perfect state faster and not waste our time here in this life, which is the lowest level of our existence.

Question: So does this mean that this point is innate?

Answer: Everyone has this point, and the only question is: When is it turned on?

Our World Is A Point Of Spiritual Ascent

712.03The world where we live was formed by the successive descent of the upper world, which, gradually reduced itself and reached the very last point called “our world.” And this is the best state for spiritual ascent.

As we rise, we do not forget this state, but we begin to comprehend it in a new way, to feel it, to approve it, to justify it. We see that it is thanks to this very lowest world, remote from perfection, that we can appreciate the perfection we are ascending to.

At the same time, we expand and open the spiritual world more and more and begin to understand that our state was forced, specially created for us, not as a punishment, but absolutely opposite to perfection. And on the difference between the two worlds, we can realize how perfect the upper world is.

Therefore, if a person begins to treat our world correctly as a point of ascent, he no longer curses Him, knows how to use it, appreciates and values ​​it. This world is a really good start for us.

Question: Does this happen only at the level of perception, not sensation?

Answer: It depends on how you understand it. For example, if I get sick, the doctor gives me an injection. It hurts me, it’s unpleasant, but I take it with gratitude and pay him for the service because I know that it will give a good result. Therefore, the doctor, as a mediator, is justified, desirable in my eyes.

So, you just need to open your eyes to see the final result. This is what Kabbalah gives us. And then this whole world becomes necessary, desired, and correct; you know how to use it to achieve perfection based on the opposite state.

Question: In this regard, do we want to somehow improve our world?

Answer: No. We only need to raise ourselves. There is nothing to transform the world. We are constantly trying to improve it, but it only gets worse because we have to change ourselves, not the world.

Why Can We Not Soften The Creator?

249.02The higher we rise to the purpose of creation, the greater and more aggressive the egoism that is revealed to us becomes. As it is written: “Anyone who is greater than his friend, his inclination is greater.” We correct this egoistic desire and that is how we rise.

The only way we can rise is by climbing the mountain of broken desires that we inherited from the transgression of the tree of knowledge, that is, from the shattering of the system of Adam HaRishon. The Creator deliberately broke this system to give us a place for work and correction.

If the descent does not end but only intensifies, then I have not corrected it enough. I need to be incorporated in the ten even more with that descent and try by incorporating in everyone to turn this descent into an ascent.

This is how we advance: a descent, then an ascent to the same height, then an even deeper fall, an even higher rise until we come to the deepest fall and then rise to the maximum height, to the state of final correction.

This is why we need to strengthen ourselves more and more in the group in order to be able to climb the degrees of the ascent and remain in descents as little as possible.

If I did everything possible but still cannot get out of the state of descent, it means that the Creator is showing me that a prayer is missing here.

There are two conditions for ascent:
1. Connection in the group;
2. Help from above.

In order to get help from above, I need to raise a prayer from the descent, MAN, and receive help from above, MAD. Then I will have the strength to ascend.

All this I need to implement in the group. If a person is not in a group and cannot raise MAN together with his friends, then he will not receive help from above, MAD, and will not be able to rise. Then he just goes off this trajectory and returns to the old state. He does not ascend to a higher degree without connection in the group.

Therefore, he remains in his egoism and weighs everything inside it, cursing the teacher, the group, and the Creator. He could make a correct calculation to understand why this is happening to him, that he needs to work on this egoism every day.

We need a special elevator for the ascent: connection in the group and a request to the Creator. I enter the elevator, that is, I enter the group, I turn to the Creator, and He elevates not only me but all of us together.

Kabbalah explains the laws of nature to us. Whether we agree with them or not, they cannot be changed. If you want to advance, then study them and keep them. If we do not learn the laws of nature and keep them, then nothing will help. The Creator will not change anything in them. We will not be able to soften Him and beg Him to change the laws of nature. This has never happened and will never happen. After all, the Creator Himself is nature.
