Why the Future Is Concealed

760.4The vision of the future is concealed from the ordinary person. And this is rightly so because it would take away someone’s freewill.

On the contrary, a person is given darkness and emptiness. Do you want to get to a state where you are above time? Please go, but on your own, when you will be in this layer consciously and will not do anything to harm others.

You will always be silent even if you begin to exist in this layer. And this will never limit your free movement: you will not succumb to some stupid fanaticism in order to swim fatalistically through this layer.

A person rises to this layer only with a screen when he takes on the responsibility to move forward, although he sees the future predetermined 100%, he wants to implement it himself. This is called faith above reason.

214Question: When you describe the various states, you say that we have to go through them ourselves. Does it happen that you talk hypothetically about what awaits everyone, but you have not passed these states yourself?

Answer: No, how would I be able to talk about them?

Question: Does it mean that you have passed through everything you talk about inside and out?

Answer: No, not inside and out! I have not gone through everything that we read in the books yet. Where am I compared to their great authors?! I have not reached many degrees of my teacher, especially Baal HaSulam or other great Kabbalists.

But what I am saying comes from my feelings. From what else can I answer questions?

I have made particular progress in explaining the connection between our world and the upper world because this is what our generation needs.

The current generation needs the wisdom of Kabbalah in order to link its internal state, structure, and psychology with the upper world, with integral education and upbringing, with inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature, and the state of “man,” with the development of egoism, crises, and with the influence of the outside world on us. We need to know how to organize a group that includes all of humanity.

I am constantly digesting all this in order to create such a good sphere around humanity in which it could find itself and begin to adapt to the general universe, to go beyond the human body and our five senses. I think this is the most important thing.

That is, I am like a point of contact between what an ordinary little person feels and at least the first spiritual degree to which I would like to bring him.

If I could bring a large mass of people to the first spiritual degree while I am still in this world so that it would work out like this, billions are in the feeling of our world, and hundreds of thousands are in the feeling of the upper world, and the rest are between them, on all levels, then there would be contact between the upper dimension and ours. And I have actually helped to create it. This is my dream!

Question: What are the chances?

Answer: I think there are chances. I am an optimist! As long as I live, I hope.

How Much Longer for Changes for the Better?

543.02Comment: One day a disciple asked his master: “How long do we wait for changes for the better?” “If you wait, it will take a long time,” the master replied.

We always have two possibilities: either to wait for a change for the better, or to not wait and to act. We see today that actions lead mainly to hatred, to a desire to change others. This is called action. I have a feeling that it is better not to act.

My Response: Actually, yes.

Question: What do you think is the right approach?

Answer: The right approach is to consciously dissolve in nature. Nature is the Creator. As much as we agree with this nature, with how it flows and what it does, it is much easier for us to accept the truth.

Question: So are you in favor of accepting?

Answer: What can you do?

Comment: Be proactive somehow. Here the wise man said: “Act.”

My Response: No, there is no point.

Question: So for you, the action is to accept what is happening? Can this be called an action?

Answer: Of course, you are working on yourself.

Question: Is it something active?

Answer: Of course. You force yourself to accept nature, or the Creator, as the only objective force of reality that exists.

Question: So I justify what is happening to me?

Answer: Of course, and everything around you.

Question: This is clearly a fantasy, but if everyone acted this way—politicians, scientists, what would happen? What would everything turn into?

Answer: Everything would be good and quiet. We would agree with the course of our lives and would calmly observe it.

Question: What about science, medicine, technology, and technological progress?

Answer: These too are given to us to gradually master and realize that none of them will change anything in the end.

Question: What is action and non-action? What is an action in agreement with what is happening?

Answer: This means that I fully trust the Creator and do not want to change anything according to my mind. I do not want to run ahead of what is happening. In general, I am not interested in any problems or any states. I am interested in involving myself in this and going with the flow. Not because I am lazy, but because I do not want to interfere in what is happening with my brains or my strength.

Question: The master was asked: “How long do we wait for changes for the better?” He replied: “If you wait, it will take a long time.” How would you answer? Or how would you comment on it?

How long do we wait for changes for the better?

Answer: There is no need to wait. The best is what is now. As you change yourself, your perception will change accordingly. Take everything philosophically.

Mutual Exploration of the World

530Question: Can it be that a person sees his qualities through me?

Answer: He sees through you, and you see through him. Thus, each of you has a mutual exploration of the world through yourself.

If the whole world were in you, you would be closed only in yourself, in your desires, and would not explore anything. You do not know yourself and you never look inside yourself because the desire is always aimed at capturing, bringing, taking, and absorbing in yourself.

When I see a huge world outside of me in which everything inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human are images of my desires, since they are outside of me, I am very clearly given the opportunity to explore myself. I explore the whole world, I absorb it, I want to know. Therefore, egoism is such a help for us.

When I begin to remake myself in relation to others who are outside of me, I actually change myself, my inner qualities, and desires from egoistic to altruistic.

But who do I treat like this if this is outside of me? The Creator.

The Main Idea of Kabbalah

294.3Kabbalah reveals to us that “there is none else besides Him.” The Creator is behind everything that happens around us. The main thing is not to be distracted from the thought that all this is Him, to look for Him in all the images around you and inside you.

Apart from the thought that “there is no one else besides Him,” everything else is controlled by Him. This thought is also given by Him! But you must grasp it and begin to cultivate a free, separate, opposite state in yourself from it, and to become similar to Him, a person, Adam.

Question: How can you not become religious when you start talking like many do?

Answer: No, these are all words; they have no meaning. The meaning of the words is completely different.

In religions, everything comes down to physical actions. They do not have an internal apparatus. Their internal actions are in the form of repentance and so on. Kabbalah, however, is directed in the opposite direction from religion, toward the revelation of the Creator.

Religion exists due to the concealment of the Creator and is in no way interested in revealing Him. Therefore, it says: “Be a simple kind of man, obey, and that is it.” But Kabbalah is interested in developing a person.

New Life 453 – Wave Of Upheavals In Israel, Part 2

New Life 453 – Wave Of Upheavals In Israel, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

There is very little understanding as to why there is such an upheaval at this time. It is unclear what should be done regarding the violence being committed against common citizens.

The final state is determined by the initial thought. It is all part of the waves of development governed by the absolute laws of nature. We are under this system of laws whether we are conscious of it or not. The process we must go through in history begins in the chaos of the shattering of harmony on all levels. There are different periods within this process— still, vegetative, animate, and speaking.

The periods within the speaking level are of a different nature. Humanity was not conscious of the way it has developed until 5,775 years ago when Adam discovered nature’s plan. Since then, we have some kind of knowledge about what is happening to us, and we have been given the tools with which to research our internality. Our future form already exists and we need to reach it. By our participation, we can initiate an easier, more pleasant process.

When I participate, the force inside me is felt as desirable and good. We are learning how we can influence our fate. How do we hasten the process and consciously participate in our own attainment?

If we discover certain phenomena that are outside of this harmony, it means that we are not keeping nature properly. A very tiny part of humanity called Israel determines how the rest of humanity will act. Others can also join this process. If there is no wholeness, Israel is to blame. We need to understand that Intifada and anti-Semitism indicate that Israel is falling behind.

Already a long time ago, Israel began to fall short of its correct participation. We needed to start pulling ourselves and the rest of the world into its whole and perfect state. We only need to think how we can take the forces of nature and arrange the connection between us within Israel. When we connect among us, we disperse the force of wholeness and perfection, of love and connection to all of humanity.

We were once connected in the time of the First Temple and we fell from that state into the nations of the world. We integrated with them and absorbed all of their desires. It was necessary to absorb the entire human ego inside of us, and this is what we went into exile for. Now we need not wait for anyone else. It is up to us. Once we have connected among ourselves, the nations of the world will come and help us. If we do not perform our role, we can expect worse calamities to occur.

We need to understand the measure to which we are still not in a corrected place. The people of Israel must awaken and start doing what is upon us to do. Let us make of our life and the lives of all nations a good, pleasant, and beautiful life.

“Why is English considered an international language?” (Quora)

Dr. Michael LaitmanMichael Laitman, On Quora: Why is English considered an international language?

England once fought with Germany to spread their respective influences on American territory, and the German language was set to prevail at a certain point. If it did, then today we would very likely be in a world with German as the common international language.

But human development took a different turn.

Instead, the English branch of culture—which is not far from the German one, but which is more open—became the international one.

At that time, the Germans wished to overpower and enslave others by force. The British, however, planted their own culture and language, expanding in a completely different way.

The English had a softer and more preferable attitude to the world and to the discovery of new lands than the Germans, and English thus prevailed. Due to this difference in approaches, English is closer to being corrected as an international language than German.

Despite the prevalence and spread of German culture throughout Europe, we find that the German language is not used other than in Germany and some nearby countries.

Unlike our past development, however, today’s path to unification will not be through the expansion of nations and languages. Instead, our next form of unification is one that nature is forcing on us, where we become increasingly interconnected and interdependent worldwide.

We are now developing to a critical tipping point where we will need a new method of connecting to each other above nationalities and languages. Without upgrading our attitudes to each other—to positively connect above our differences and divisions—then we will feel our tightening global interdependence as a negative phenomenon that brings us more and more suffering.

I thus hope that we undergo this major transition to new positive, supportive, considerate and encouraging attitudes to each other above our differences sooner rather than later, and realize how much better, harmonious, joyful and peaceful our lives can be.
