Once during Sukkot, the entire group was in a very good state and I asked my teacher Rabash what else were we lacking in order to jump right now to a special degree, which already is a spiritual one. He answered: “We are lacking an attack. We need an attack from your side.”
An attack is a cry of the heart. Everyone connects in one heart and together we ask, demand, shout, and beg for one thing: we want to rise up and cling to the Creator. It does not matter whether it is men or women, the main thing is to cry together from the bottom of the heart and address one Creator.
We only need to strengthen our connection so that it becomes even more powerful and strong, where everyone clings to the friends with all his might and holds on to them. Then we will definitely feel ourselves in a spiritual ascent. The Creator has placed us in a good state; we just need to connect more.
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 3/6/23, “Working in Ascents and Descents”
Pesach (Passover) is the biggest holiday for Kabbalists because it represents an exit from our egoism, from the will to receive pleasure, from the state of separation from the Creator, and from distance from our friends.
Passover is the beginning of the spiritual path, when we break away from the pincers of egoism that suffocate us and do not allow us to breathe.
Therefore we want to escape from such egoism in order to move toward connection between us and to restore the common Kli of Adam HaRishon, one common soul, in order to feel in it one spiritual world, one light, one Creator, and all of us together as one.
This is why this holiday is so important. There is no more important holiday than Passover. “Pesach” means “leap” (pasach). When we make a leap, we move from a state of egoistic reception to altruistic bestowal.
When we exit from our egoism, the will to receive, and this earthly nature that is artificially created by the Creator, it is really a great holiday. A fascinating journey into spirituality begins with it.
A person should feel that he needs a spiritual Kli, that he wants to contain all the parts of the soul so that they fill all his inner desire, and all his thoughts and aspirations would be only about the point of connection with the Creator. If he has reached such a state, it means that he has already prepared himself for exodus from Egypt.
Without a sense of exile, it is impossible to reach redemption. After all, the advantage of light is revealed only from darkness. Therefore, if the Creator wants to lead us to bestowal, to a state of being equal to the Creator, He is forced to lead us through exile.
The difference between exile (Galut) and redemption (Geula) is only in one letter “Aleph” – א, meaning the Creator. When the Creator begins to appear in our life, exile turns into redemption.
From the 1st part of the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 3/6/23, “Pesach (Passover)”
Answer: Spiritual matter is desire.
Question: What does it consist of?
Answer: Desire exists by itself. It was created by the Creator, and therefore, there are no more questions about what it is. It is the very desire that exists in nature, and all nature consists of it.
Moreover, this desire is only to be satisfied, to enjoy, to receive, to be filled with something that is outside of it. And besides, there is a desire to give, to saturate, to fill. Everything that exists consists of these two desires.
From KabTV’s “The Study of the Ten Sefirot (TES)” 2/12/23
Answer: At one time England fought with Germany for the spread of influence on the American territory, and such prerequisites were created that the German language was supposed to prevail. As a result, today we would have seen the whole world speaking German.
But the upper management took such a turn that the world went along the English branch of culture, although it is not far from the German one. It is just more open, less closed.
The Germans wanted to enslave everyone by force, and the British, basically, planted their own culture, their own language, and therefore, they spread in a completely different way. The Germans did not have a goal to discover new lands and settle there. Their goal was only to enslave and crush.
And the English attitude to the world, to the discovery of new lands, was more preferable and softer, and therefore it prevailed. As a result, English is closer to being corrected as an international language than German.
And where is the German language used except for Germany itself and some countries around it? Nowhere. And this despite the fact that German culture has always prevailed in Europe. English, Austrian, and Hungarian kings were from Germany. In the end, these are all Germanic peoples.
Previously, there were a lot of all kinds of Germanic tribes that united not so long ago. But today it doesn’t matter anymore.
Question: What is the next, correct way to merge?
Answer: Now there will no longer be a path of unity across peoples, nationalities, and languages. The next path is a general forced unification, from which we cannot escape.
And Kabbalah will spread spiritually as a spiritual culture. People will be drawn to it no matter where they are because, due to their inner need, they will feel that they need it.

Question: When many people gather at the congress, and among them are beginners who absorb what you say with their mouths open, they are just in shock. While they are in shock, does the system work with them somehow?
Answer: Beginners are shocked by two levels.
The first is the level of knowledge, generalization, and understanding of the entire system. Suddenly they see that somehow everything is coming together, everything is in order. From clarity, from awakening, they experience the first shock, it is because Kabbalah really gives such a simple, clear, and precise view of the world and nature that a person is really amazed in comparison to what he knew before. This is the first.
The second is that they feel the inner force that comes from the upper layer. They cannot explain what it is, but the feeling is already there.
Question: Does it mean that information from a parallel layer enters them?
Answer: No. I cannot insert anything into them if they do not want it. Only to the extent that they have spent their efforts to come to the lecture, connect, listen, understand, and join, they absorb some information. But in no case does it deprive them of their freewill.
From KabTV’s “I Got a Call. Coercion in Kabbalah” 6/9/12
Kabbalah is a method of attracting the upper force that changes you and raises you to the degree at which you can feel it. As Baal HaSulam said, “And only what you reveal, you and no one else will reveal.”
People are always trying to retell all this as if one can convey something in words. There is no way! No electrodes and signals can do anything.
It is impossible to connect to the next informational level by any science, because the information is in a different form there, in the form of light. And there are no physical adapters of light that would sense it at our level, you have to create them.
To create them is to “become similar.” To the extent that you are similar to the qualities of light, you begin to connect to this field and receive energy, information from it—everything that is in it, its perception.
Therefore, there is nothing but an internal change of a person!

New Life 452 – Wave Of Upheavals In Israel, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
In the wake of a wave of riots among Israeli Arabs—violence and terror attacks that have made people afraid of being on the streets—we would like to understand the complex relationship we have with Israeli Arabs.
We need to look at this from the point of view of the truth of the upper force and how it behaves toward us. The system of nature begins from a chaotic starting point where everything is gradually arranged according to laws that have become increasingly clearer. The human level was already contained within this system of inanimate, vegetative, and animate creation, but has not yet been fully revealed. Nature is always being drawn toward balance until it reaches its inner harmony.
Accordingly, human society is also in a process of rapid development that draws us toward greater revelation of balanced and harmonious states. We can observe that nature proceeds at its own special pace called ”in due time,” which we perceive as historical processes and the relations between different parts of humanity. Within this context, we see that a special phenomenon called “the people of Israel” is present throughout all of history.
When compared with other nations, the creation of the nation of Israel was completely artificial. Instead of evolving naturally out of common culture and customs, Abraham gathered from among all the nations those who cared about the upper force. The essence of this nation is this very exalted idea not of this world. According to this principle, Abraham said our place is there, and so they went. There existed an equivalence of form with the soil. When Israel was no longer in accordance with “one man with one heart” and “love of others,” the land expelled them.
History exists only in order to allow time and place to work on this nation in its special role throughout history. They had to go through a shattering; they had to discover an opposite state, exile, where they were totally separated and dispersed among all the nations, after which they have gathered once again to elevate themselves toward unity and pull all of humanity toward unity with them. Everyone hates Israel and wants to erase it, and yet they see that they depend on Israel. They believe that Israel are the ones creating the problem, and they may feel weak compared with the people of Israel.
History has to end at the end of 6,000 years and conclude the entire historical process where we reach the end of correction, this world disappears, and we enter the next world. This upper state is a state of unity and mutual bestowal. The Israeli nation has to be the head and lead everyone to this final state. We have to take into consideration what the general plan is and how closely our participation matches this general plan. Israel must balance the forces of plus and minus, otherwise adverse consequences will manifest. We must tell everyone what is coming and lift ourselves to the degree of harmony, bestowal, and love. We receive the guidance of nature, sometimes as “help against.” When we understand the tendencies of nature and the plan laid out for us, we will be able to resolve the problem.
