Blessed Are Those Who Work Together

294.2More and more problems are revealed in the world as a result of the lack of communication between us that is revealed from above. The upper governance wants to show us how our connection is flawed and how insufficient it is for the revelation of the upper light, the upper force, the Creator between us.

The Creator is a consequence of our connection. The more we connect with each other, the more the Creator is revealed between us. Therefore, the Creator is called “come and see” (Bo-Re). After all, by coming closer and connecting with each other, we build Him, as it is said: “You created Me.”

And if we are not connected with each other, it is as if there is no Creator, there is no one to turn to. The common force that we want to reveal in the connection between us will be the Creator, to whom we can turn for help.

For example, now when there is a threat of famine and many countries realize that they need to work together, this will bring them a blessing. But don’t think that it will go so smoothly and easily. At the same time, there will be many countries that do not want to cooperate and they will raise prices and will burn the harvest.

We are entering a period when the actions of nature, meaning the Creator, become very direct and purposeful in order to force us to feel and understand His intentions, as if to stand right in front of Him. The Creator requires us to behave correctly and we must respond to this demand.

The duty of our world Kabbalah group is to manage the correction process without remaining passive. We can turn this movement to the left or to the right, promote connection, and explain to everyone what to do like a captain standing at the helm, commanding the sailors, and explaining how to act at every moment.

That is how we need to explain to all mankind where we are and how we can be saved from the blows of the waves so that everyone can dock at the quiet, promised shore.

Concepts for Describing the Upper Roots

600.01Question: In The Study of the Ten Sefirot, Baal HaSulam writes that the authors tried to use all the words of our world to designate and explain some upper roots. What does “upper and lower roots” mean?

Answer: The point is that Kabbalists describe the states that they themselves experienced because they acquired new possibilities of sensation. Therefore, they narrate them in such a way that it is as close as possible to us and we can somehow imagine them.

In fact, it is impossible to imagine these substances and objects, maybe just approximately. There is a desire that is fulfilled with what it desires. This state—desire and fulfillment together—is called the upper world, that is, that which exists as the first phase of creation.

737.01In the News (boredpanda.com): Photographer And His Wife Plant 2 Million Trees In 20 Years To Restore A Destroyed Forest And Even The Animals Have Returned”

“’The land was as sick as I was – everything was destroyed,’ Salgado said in The Guardian back in 2015. ‘Only about 0.5% of the land was covered in trees. Then my wife had a fabulous idea to replant this forest. And when we began to do that, then all the insects and birds and fish returned and, thanks to this increase of the trees I, too, was reborn – this was the most important moment.’ …

“Together, Sebastião and Lélia founded Instituto Terra, a small organization that has since planted 4 million saplings and has brought the forest back from the dead. …

“And so, after taking utmost care to ensure that everything planted is native to the land, the area has flourished remarkably in the ensuing 20 years. Wildlife has returned, where there was a deathly silence, there is now a cacophony of birdcalls and insects buzzing around. In all, some 172 bird species have returned, as well as 33 species of mammals, 293 species of plants, 15 species of reptiles and 15 species of amphibians, an entire ecosystem rebuilt from scratch.”

Question: If we promote such heroes will we be able to push a person to some meaning of life and perhaps even correct the ecological system of the world? What do you think?

Answer: This is certainly great! Unbelievable!

Question: So, are you for promoting such people?

Answer: Of course!

Comment: Naturally, they received help, but they organized it all. Millions of trees have been planted. It is even shown there in pictures, a barren area of Brazil and suddenly after 20 years, everything is overgrown with trees and plants, birds came back, animals came, and life returned. They are so happy and the husband and wife stand together and hugging.

My Response: Of course!

Question: Does it mean that there is still something good in man?

Answer: Somewhere far and deep, but there is.

Question: How can we extract it?

Answer: By somehow demonstrating that the world is not without good people. Do you want to be like them? And so on.

Question: Are you in favor of such promotions after all?

Answer: Of course! Nature really needs our sensible attitude to it.

Question: What goal should a person have? Is the goal to get out of my personal drought in this way?

Answer: Certainly. Absolutely it is only that way! It really helps.

Question: That is, if this good becomes the meaning of life, right?

Answer: It changes a person.

The Group Is the Guarantor of Safety

528.03Question: Very often disagreements arise between several friends in a group, sometimes even of a purely corporeal nature. Is it possible for a person to insure against this?

Answer: No. Not in any way! We need to increase disagreements. A person will have the strength to overcome them if he has a strong ten that will hold him and secure him like climbers secure themselves. But all the same, he will always fall into an egoistic abyss.

If the group does not break up and holds on, it will pull him up, it will help, and he will again get hold of the goal with his teeth and pull himself out. The ten helps, but it cannot work instead of him. It gives the importance of the goal and throws the end of the rope: “Please, be strong,” and he has to pull himself up on his own.

But it happens that everything is in your hands, just latch the carabiner! But the friend does not want to tie himself to the others because that is it: “They will drag me, and I will no longer be able to detach myself.” He cannot. Here, latch the carabiner—but no! And he will move away, tangentially, on his own. There is a special trajectory along which a person moves away from the group: along a parabola, gradually, not abruptly.

He begins to be interested in some other similar things to be fulfilled with money, fame, power, knowledge; he is under some other stronger influence. In general, this is a problem.

But the crisis that is developing around helps a lot. People have nowhere to go, they begin to understand that we  are talking serious business, that we are sober, normal, rational people, that we actually know nature, both man and the world around us, and that we are not mystics, but, on the contrary, realists. And they see they are the mystics.

In the end, they will see: “No matter how much we despise them, hate them, and are ready to crumble and grind them, it turns out that they are right.” And they will have to agree.

Origins of Time Measurement

746.03Question: How did it happen that people were able to carry accurate time throughout history? We know exactly how many thousands of years have passed since this or that event. How was it measured?

Answer: In Judaism, it is measured very simply and there is no problem with this! But when you look at some other dimensions, let’s say, some city is a 100, 600, or 1,000 years-old, then in Judaism this is not the time because the calculation comes from Adam almost 6,000 years ago. We know absolutely everything that happened on what dates: great people, great events, and everything else.

If we take what is written in our books and remove all the world philosophical and historical sources that historians and philosophers came up with by pulling them out of their heads without any reason, but simply because they think so, then you can see that everything is known and everything it is clear: who existed, at what time, and so on.

If you open Wikipedia, you will see how much is twisted there because everyone wants to say something in their own way: “This is what I think.” It turns out to be such an accumulation of all sorts of absurdities and conclusions that no one can sort out anything here.

I hope that when humanity begins to understand a little from within itself of what the truth is and will determine by the smell that this is true and this is not, then it will simply begin cleaning everything up! Then it will see that everything is clear and everything is understandable.

“We found the Qumran manuscripts and now we understand that the Bible is right!” or something else. But who are you anyway?! The chronicle has been kept for 6,000 years. Why are you with your conclusions climbing to the heights of the sages?! It seems so ridiculous.

All this is a blind human pride: nothing more than, “I want to have my say!” There is nothing new in the world, everything is described and everything is measured. We know everything that happened and on what dates.

It is written, “And there was morning, and there was evening, the first day.” That is all. Sunday is the first day and it is called so. From that day all the measurement started. Measurement of what? The period when humanity began to approach the next stage, to become humans. Before that, there was the development of inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels.

This is how all historical dates and processes are calculated. Why are they not measured by our clocks and rotation around the Sun and the Earth? Because none of this exists. All this is within us! There is no sun, no moon, no earth—nothing. These are our inner feelings.

Soon we will rise to the next stage of development and all past sensations will disappear. This whole cosmos, with everything that I now feel, will suddenly begin to move away as if in a fog, will leave my sensations until it ceases to exist at all. That is all. It also does not exist now. All matter is given to us in our sensations.

“Could the Large Hadron Collider reveal the secrets of the universe?” (Quora)

Dr. Michael LaitmanMichael Laitman, On Quora: Could the Large Hadron Collider reveal the secrets of the universe?

These expensive toys will not let us solve the universe’s deepest secrets, because they do not research in the same dimension as the force that controls the universe.

We do not find the force controlling us, the universe and nature through physical means. We find the force controlling us by making ourselves equal to it.

If we invert our egoistic nature to its opposite—altruism—then we equalize our nature with the source quality of the universe itself, and we would then better understand the universe.

The inner force of the universe, of nature, is called “the Creator” or “the upper force.” This force is a quality of love and bestowal. Equalizing our qualities with nature’s means applying such a quality to ourselves. We would then know the secrets of the universe, i.e. we would understand how nature thinks, its desires, thoughts and actions. It is written about such a state, “From Your actions we will know You.”

We do not need to accelerate particles to discover the secrets of the universe. What we need to accelerate are our own thoughts, desires and intentions toward each other, so that they would connect, and then in their collision—where we aim to love above the hatred, and to unite to each other above our divisive drives—then those tendencies would collide and connect. Then, we would see the universe’s secrets internally, emotionally and boundlessly between people.

Based on the video “Could the Large Hadron Collider Reveal the Secrets of the Universe?” with Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman and Oren Levi. Written/edited by students of Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman.
