Congress: Absorbing Others

laitman_963.8Question: How can we be in touch with all the tens when some of the friends participate in the congress physically and some virtually?

Answer: What is the difference? At the congress there will be random tens. I don’t care where my friends are.

The congress is designed to absorb all the tens, the entire world Kli, to absorb opinions, feelings—everything that is in all our friends, and not that I come along with my ten, sit down at the table with a sign: “This is the Italian group, here is its table.”

What difference does it make if I sit here or at my home in Rome or elsewhere. I have to mix with everyone, to feel their spirit and life as much as possible, and in this measure I will advance.

Our progress depends on how we mutually intermingle with each other; this is our strength—not each of us separately, but jointly!

So, let one part come here and another part remain there, there is no difference; the main thing is that I constantly try to absorb the impressions of all the friends, their love, their feelings, and their aspirations to the goal. I need these forces.

Congresses: A Big Leap

laitman_294.2The whole system of the common soul, Adam HaRishon, the creation created by the Creator, already exists. Only in relation to us does it look as if it is broken and suffering without Light, harmony, and direction. Shattering works only in relation to us so that we would feel what we have lost and what we lack to reach the perfect state. In this way, we begin to understand, feel, and study the system of creation, and manage to rule it.

It is like we bought a Lego set for a child, opened the box, saw a pile of different pieces in it, and we say: “Let’s build a house.” The child begins to think about how to connect the pieces together. Similarly, the Creator made a puzzle or “Lego of creation” for us.

We exist in a perfect system in which there has never been any deficiency, and concealment has been made only in relation to us. We must compensate for this concealment by building ourselves. This is an interesting game, as if on a computer. To the extent of our understanding of what the system should be, we can see how another part of the system, correctly connected with the rest, reveals itself on this computer.

It seems to us that we are building this system, but in reality, we only reveal that it already exists. All we need is to join the place that the Creator has led us to, the ten, to include ourselves in it, so we will understand our place in the common system.

Three days of the congress are in store for us during which we will be able to make a big leap in the path. We have prepared a lot and achieved significant success in connection, which we can now further develop. Anyone who “went through the desert,” that is, participated in the desert congress in Israel and was with us around the world, can now make a massive leap forward, precisely due to their connection at the congress with the outside Israeli public through their AHP de Rosh.

The common soul is divided into the upper part, the Rosh (head), GE and AHP, and the Guf (body), GE and AHP. The GE of the Rosh are the people participating in desert congress. The AHP of the Rosh are the guests invited to the big congress in Tel Aviv. However, this AHP still belongs to the Rosh of the spiritual Partzuf. The Guf are the people joining us due to external dissemination on the Internet and through the newspapers.1

The meaning of life can be understood only from the science of Kabbalah. We have to go through a lot of blows and disappointments until we realize that our life will definitely end and that we have no chance to succeed in it. Everyone will die, like any animal will decompose in the ground and nothing will remain of it like all those who lived before us.

The only way to stay alive is to bring your inner part to the spiritual world, to develop your point in the heart at least in the minimal form: include it in the group, to several more people like me. Then I will have the right to exist.

No particle of creation can exist unless it joins other particles and exchanges energy with them. This is the whole difference between decomposed dust and living matter: they are distinguished only by the presence of an internal connection between the parts.

Therefore, we must connect with each other in such a way that spiritual life appears between us, and for this purpose we need work in the ten, in connection, and at congresses.

This is a law of nature; we cannot go against it. We either fulfill the law of life or not—the choice is ours.2

Bnei Baruch Women’s Conference

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 1/14/19

This weekend, I spoke at our international virtual conference on empowering women in 2019. I said what I always say at every opportunity when the subject comes up: After hundreds of years, women can finally come out from behind the scenes and from behind the modesty that surrounded them, to take over responsibility, management, promotion, and influence in all areas of life.

This coming year is unique in giving women around the world the opportunity to chart a new direction for humanity. All that is required of them, and all of us, is a tiny thing: to rise above the conflicts. Through compromise and connection, you can make the world a warm and loving home.

Dear women, do not miss this opportunity.

Why Is Coca-Cola More Accessible Than Water?

laitman_547.05Question: Why is a can of cold Coca-Cola more accessible than a glass of fresh water?

Answer: Coca-Cola is closer, more affordable, and more available to us than a glass of good pure water because someone profits from it.

Again, the egoism of a person, of a manufacturing company, pushes it to make its product more accessible to all. It cannot earn as much from a glass of water as from a can of Coca-Cola, so Coca-Cola promotes itself to make money from us.

However, if by means of planetary awareness, we realize what is useful for us, we use only good things for us and despise the rest, if we eliminate everything we do not need and use only necessary things, then of course, during the life of one generation, we would be able to raise a generation that would be disgusted with Coca-Cola and all sorts of unhealthy foods, endless sweets, etc.

Then, we will bring up a new, healthy generation without genetic food and without such poisons as Coca-Cola and such.

After all, if egoism disappears from the world, then no one will benefit from making poisonous foods. No one would feel any benefit from it. On the contrary, society should condemn all those companies that act this way. Society must take care to protect all its members from the distribution of poisonous food.

But since we do not love each other, we do not care about each other’s health. As a result, of course, there are those who sell poisons, advertise poisons, and there are those who under the influence of this advertisement begin to buy them, use them—they take this poison.

Our egoism pushes us to all bad things. Until we restrain it, we will drink poisons and will not achieve a healthy life.

Increase The Intensity Of Advancement

laitman_938.05Question: How can I improve the quality of my annulment before others? What is important to pay attention to? It feels like everything starts from this point.

Answer: I am trying to give the most appropriate material, especially on Twitter, to awaken people somehow. In each lesson we advance at least in the theoretical understanding of our task. No matter how much I want to, I cannot speak more openly, in more advanced way. This is a closed system where my students dictate the boundaries of my conversations.

The events during holidays and conventions are the only ones that give me an opportunity to express more because a vast mass of people, who somehow connect together, join us. We then somewhat succeed.

We are advancing by leaps, jumping from convention to convention, from holiday to holiday, like a grasshopper that jumps from one place to another. It’s good, I would nonetheless like more intensive, consistent, uniform, and continuous advancement.
