New Life #1041 – Living In Sync With Nature

New Life #1041 – Living In Sync With Nature
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

The human ego brings us into conflict with nature. Mothers don’t want to breastfeed, children grow up separated from their homes and families, and technology confuses us with fake news, etc. We need to reach the recognition of evil in order to advance toward an understanding of what nature demands from us and to overcome the confusion we find in today’s world. The truth is found in nature, which shows us the need to be connected to a family first and then to expand the connections from there. We must begin to consider that everything around us is for the good of humanity. We need to learn how to use technology and other forms of development for the benefit of every individual rather than the monetary gain of a few.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

When will the market crash? Any moment, soon!
But the market crash factor is invisible…
Experts warn to safeguard themselves.
Yet the crash is inevitable, impending and stressful.
Politicians, economists and traders are all holding their breath.
The storm is coming!

My Thoughts On Twitter 9/14/18

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Perfection, from the smallest to the greatest, is evaluated by how all kinds of negative and positive phenomena unite together as one single whole.
There’s no good or bad —there’s harmony and perfection.

My World Is A Collection Of Desires

laitman_423.02Question: Kabbalists call everything desires. Even scientists have a hard time understanding when you explain that a table is also a desire and that everything we see around us are desires.

Answer: Of course, any object is a certain kind of desire, that is, a collection of atoms that exist in a corresponding connection with each other. But in what form does this table exist? In the form of desire. It is felt in my desires, and nothing exists except for this.

Question: What does “in me” mean? I can see the table outside of me.

Answer: It seems to you that you see it outside of yourself. In fact, you feel it in yourself. Even stars or other huge bodies you feel in yourself, not outside yourself.

Precisely because there are inanimate, vegetative, animal, and human desires in you, you feel them inside yourself in various combinations and call them “my world.” Outside yourself there is nothing except for the forces that affect and bring about such pictures in you. Everything that you now feel around you exists within you.

Love For The Creator Is Love For The Quality Of Bestowal

laitman_565.01Question: Are there any signs that the Creator is getting nearer?

Answer: Answer yourself: “How much you can cultivate this force, this quality, between you?” You create the Creator, as it is written: “As though you have made Me.” Only this way and in no other way.

Question: But you say that it is not in person’s power to perform this commandment?

Answer: When we, the egoists, try to connect with each other, we begin to ask that our attempts will be realized—this is when we turn to the Creator. However, this is not the Creator yet, rather just an external force that gave birth to egoism, and therefore, by trying to become similar to it, we can withdraw it from the side of egoism.

Question: What is “love for the Creator”? What exactly do we love: the quality of bestowal or something abstract?

Answer: It is about the quality of bestowal, just as in our world we can love, respect, and praise any quality that exists in nature, in society, and in people. We attain love for the Creator as the manifestation of love for our neighbor.

Question: Where is the border between love for our neighbor and love for the Creator at the highest degree?

Answer: When a particular neighbor is blurred and disappears, then the Creator emerges instead of him. In fact, it is the same thing.

Question: Is the love for the Creator and the spiritual world the same thing?

Answer: The spiritual world is the field of bestowal and love. Our world is the field of reception and hatred. The world is a field of forces: either negative (our world) or positive (upper world).

The attainment of love for the Creator implies a spiritual attainment.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 4/8/18

laitman_547.03Question: Can you say something about your first spiritual experience?

Answer: It cannot be described so I do not even try. I can only say that, as a rule, it comes suddenly.

Question: If everything is found within me, why do we constantly get a different picture of the world?

Answer: Reshimot (reminiscences), the data of spiritual knowledge, constantly change in us. Therefore, we perceive everything differently.

Question: Can the Creator make a mistake?

Answer: He does not perform any action that would possibly be a mistake.

Question: What is the spiritual root of arrogance?

Answer: Egoism! It is a desire to elevate yourself by any means or to humiliate others.

Question: What is a qualitative soul?

Answer: A qualitative soul is a soul that is maximally approaching the Creator. A quality is a characteristic of bestowal and love. There is nothing else.

Question: Can a Kabbalist take revenge on those who break his heart?

Answer: First, I don’t think that a Kabbalist can think that someone is breaking his heart. A priori, this is impossible, especially revenge. This is an action of the Creator; only He manages everything.

Question: Can a person have a desire to take revenge on the Creator?

Answer: It can happen, and then some! It happens to everyone from time to time.

New Life #1040 – Equality In Relationships

New Life #1040 – Equality In Relationships
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Summary

Equality can only be realized if there is love because a person who loves the other also cares for him. In an egalitarian society, people will look for how they can benefit others because they will act out of the correction of nature, the correction of the ego. The ego feels deprived and makes demands for equal resources and equal rights. In the future, every person will look for how he can give to others instead of how to get for himself. In order to reach this type of society, a new education is required. People will begin to feel like organs in one large body and immediately help any part or person in need. This higher knowledge of love will govern our lives and our relationships. We will judge everything as a mother behaves toward her children, each one is different but all are loved.

To Come To The Commandment Of Love

laitman_249.01Question: Can we depict our three-hour morning lesson as one big prayer that includes 612 commandments? We are constantly turning between them in order to come to the commandment of love for our neighbor.

Answer: Yes, consistent fulfillment of the commandments means that we climb the degrees of Jacob’s ladder.

The constant expansion and deepening of egoism in us happens to ensure that we implement connection with each other at greater and greater levels. Every time egoism increases, we perform the commandment of connection on it, up to the love for each other.

Question: Are there 613 commandments at each degree?

Answer: Of course. But we don’t need to consider this because we are originally created this way; our soul’s vessel consists of 613 parts.

In performing 612 advices (Eytin), I receive the influence of the upper Light, which corrects me. It is called Pkudin (from the word “Pikadon – deposit”). In this manner, I constantly fulfill and correct, and again fulfill and correct.

Question: Does the division between 612 commandments and the 613th commandment also exist at each degree?

Answer: Yes, because the 613th commandment does not exist on its own, I am incapable of fulfilling the commandment of love. I cannot be forced to love the other. If I, by fulfilling 612 commandments, receive the upper Light upon my desires, then I become loving and bestowing.
