The Dependence Of The Individual Soul On The General Soul

571.02Question: What are the limitations on the individual soul as part of the general soul, and how is its dependence on the general soul expressed?

Answer: An individual soul develops only to the volume that is necessary for its restoration in the general soul. If we take an individual soul, female or male, we will see that the phases of its development always take place in the general picture of the soul of Adam and not in any other way.

Can The Souls Give Birth To Each Other?

232.08Question: Can souls give birth to each other?

Answer: No. Human beings don’t give birth to each other either; it only seems that way to us. We don’t generate anything new, except for the condition of the appearance of a new image in our world.

This means that the forces already exist and they are ready to develop, so the development of a new body seemingly takes place through an individual, a certain person, male and female, but it is predetermined.

Question: Is a new third desire born when two desires unite in spirituality?

Answer: It is new in the connection between them and in their connection with the upper, as it says, “a man and a woman, Shechina is between them,” which means the appearance of the Creator. It is the force of the Creator that prompts the male and female individuals (spiritual forces) to be internally connected, determines their next phase of development, and what will generate from them.

Life After Death

538Question: If a person knew their day of death, would they be able to live their life any better?

Answer: It depends on the person. They say that Wolf Messing knew the day and the hour of his death and was at peace with it. Others are afraid of it. And there are people who believe so much in the continuation of life that, on the contrary, they consider death desirable.

Question: Do I need to prepare for death every day?

Answer: No. We must prepare for life after death in order to continue our existence in the right way and in the same direction.

Question: Can a person be raised not to fear death?

Answer: Sure. First, all religions do this. Try to stop a suicide-bomber who voluntarily choses to die. He will be angry with you for not allowing him to go to paradise where beautiful virgins await him.

Question: But there are very few such examples. Most people, even religious ones, are afraid of death.

Answer: One should not be afraid of death. He should fear not wasting his life.

Question: What is the correct attitude to death, in your opinion?

Answer: As the biological cycle of a person comes to an end, he enters a different state, practically continuing the spiritual work that he may have started while living.

284Question: Why is someone else’s death so attractive to people? We see that when an accident occurs, many onlookers gather around. Why is this so interesting?

Answer: It is pure phycology. Something unknown, complicated, something that concerns everyone happens, and this is the reason it is so attractive.

Question: Can it be considered weakness if a person thinks about death or is afraid of it?

Answer: No. This is a natural state of man.

Question: What is your attitude regarding suicide?

Answer: Negative. I don’t understand people who do such things.

Question: Do you believe that medicine will be able to prevent death in the future?

Answer: No, never.

Question: What kind of death is ideal in your opinion?

Answer: When a person fully corrects himself, even in the last moment of his life.

Question: Is there life after the death of the physical body?

Answer: Of course. It is a different form of existence.

Question: Do you believe that the origin of life is from outer space?

Answer: No. I don’t think there is life in outer space.

Question: Can a person live several hundred years in the biological body?

Answer: Yes, he can, but what for?

Question: Is cremation permissible, in your opinion?

Answer: This is a personal matter. In principle, from the perspective of man’s spiritual development, what happens with the corporeal body after death is totally unimportant.

My Body And I

742.03Question: I find it hard to stop identifying myself with my five corporeal senses. How should I expand myself?

Answer: You have to look at your body from aside, like a beast. Your self is something that is not in the body at all. The body dies, whereas the self remains.

But I want to connect with myself before the body dies, to be inside it, and then I will not care what happens to my body.

Children And Questions About Death

570Question: How do you advise answering children’s questions about death? At what age can you talk to children about such topics? Should I take my child to a funeral?

Answer: I would not advise talking with children about death and taking them to a cemetery until they are 15 years old.

Question: And if they themselves ask such questions? They say that at the age of 10 or 11 they already begin to take interest in this.

Answer: Naturally. But I would not recommend it. Better to distract them from it. The child should not overload his psyche with such things. Let him study.

751.1Maintain Homeostasis with Nature

Question: Why is it not enough just to be in harmony with nature and society and thereby ensure good health? Why do you still need to take care of your body, lead a healthy lifestyle, eat right, and so on?

Answer: Naturally you need that. Who will support your physiological system if not you? You are a biological machine! Therefore, you must maintain biological homeostasis with nature.

Question: Yes, but my physical body is a consequence of my desires, thoughts, and psyche. Is this related?

Answer: So work on your desires and psyche so that you automatically have the right relationship with the surrounding nature to keep you in balance with it.

Question: And then I will achieve harmony at the level of the psyche?

Answer: To do this you must perceive the world around you as a global system with which you have absolute communication.

Question: Then you no longer need to engage in the body and do physical exercises?

Answer: You will perform certain exercises, take this or that form of life, based on your properties.

Have Time To Correct Ourselves

552.02Question: Would you invest money in the development of a vaccine against death?

Answer: No. On the contrary, I believe that death is a blessing. What good is there in this life? Here, a person goes through a certain stage of his development and corrects his soul within a certain framework. And that’s it, this is enough.

I believe that whatever nature, the Creator, does to us is the absolute good, the absolute truth, and there is no need to change anything.

Question: How long do you think a person should live?

Answer: Just enough to correct oneself. Not a minute more. It is, however, desirable to make it.

Question: What would you like to wish for people in their life?

Answer: “If death—let it be instant, if a wound—let it be a small one.”? What can you wish for a person? To think about how happy he is because now he has the opportunity to learn that there is a wisdom that speaks about his purpose, about life and death in such a way that he can rise above this, attain this, draw the most correct conclusions and come to a perfect result.

The Eternal Question About The Meaning Of Life

002Why do people commit suicide? They cannot bear the feeling of melancholy and emptiness. After all, they wanted to fill themselves, but despite the fact that we have television and radio, thousands of different channels and programs, I am unable to fill myself. The flaw that unfolds in me, inner dissatisfaction and emptiness, is much more than I can get from all the sources around me.

I need the meaning of life! Does my life have a meaning, a purpose worth living for? I cannot find an answer to this question. I need to know that life leads me to the right goal, to a good outcome, from which it will be better for me and others, and that I am in a special process of the flow of life, which continues forever.

Most likely, a person will stop thinking about suicide if he finds out how reality is arranged, within what program of nature we exist, and how nature controls us. We are constantly moving from one program to another, receiving a new “upgrade,” and so we comprehend creation in its entirety both in this life and above it.

The process of evolution leads us to a very worthy and lofty goal. A person must feel the stream of life flowing through him from infinity to infinity. I am in this endless stream and I myself am also endless. I just need to open myself to the perception of the power of life that is around me, and so to develop more and more.

This is not taught at school, at university, at home, or in the family. Therefore, now, when despair has grown so much and will continue to grow, a person will eventually be forced to resolve this question of the meaning of life.

I invite everyone to our Kabbalistic community to see how kind and warm it is; it helps in finding the meaning of life and its purpose, which does not end with this earthly existence. A person gets a sense of peace, eternal and wonderful life, which is worth living every moment.

When People Remember You…

961.1Question: There are people who died and no one will ever remember them. And there are people who we study, remember, even commemorate the dates of their birth and death. Does this have any meaning?

Answer: No. I would not say that it is better when people remember you. Who remembers you? Little egoists. Perhaps famous scientists or writers did something for humanity, but nothing for the correction of souls.

Comment: Yet, people constantly talk about them and study them.

My Response: So what? Does it make modern people who study them feel better? Do they correct nature and themselves through this? This is the main thing. And what they write are purely stories.
