Kabbalah Congress In Latin America

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/19/19

Over the weekend, while Israel and European countries were glued to the Eurovision contest, I was on the other side of the globe – in Monterrey, Mexico. My students and friends from all over the Latin continent gathered in this special region for the World Kabbalah Convention.

Together we learned how to connect above our differences, and the connection was felt everywhere. Many more students and friends from around the world connected virtually, and the density of connected hearts was so powerful that it became truly spiritual. The warm and vibrant nature of Latin America never slowed down as we dined, sang and danced together. I can only praise all the students and give them douze points for unity!

3 Similarities Between Pre-Holocaust Europe And Today’s World

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/2/19

Consider some striking similarities between pre-Holocaust Europe and today’s world: on one hand, social division becomes felt more rampantly, Nazi, fascist and other extremist views gain popularity, and also anti-Semitic pressure increasingly mounts on the Jews. On the other hand, there is still time for the Jews to take a step toward fixing the problem in a positive light.

What Is The Difference Between Anti-Semitism And Anti-Israelism?

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/2/19

What’s the difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism? Kabbalist Dr. Michael Laitman explains that there is a difference, even though the basis is the same.

Since Jews bear inside them the method for the world’s correction, and the more the world deteriorates, the more necessary this method becomes, the world starts needing this method more and more. There is a certain subconscious feeling that this method exists in the Jewish people, and therefore there is hatred toward the Jewish people because they prevent the world from having a good future. What exactly is the good future and what exactly should the Jews do? They don’t know.

Nature, however, is giving everyone besides Jews a feeling that the Jews have something that they’re not giving the world, and therefore, the world is suffering.

Usually, during the 2,000 years of exile, it was directed at the Jewish people in a more or less revealed way, and nowadays, after the establishment of the Jewish State, the State of Israel, then a part of anti-Semitism has become anti-Israelism, which is against the State itself.

Therefore, anti-Semitism has several faces. There are some who feel more anti-Semitic, and others who feel more anti-Israeli, but both stem from the same root, and undoubtedly, there is something about the Jewish people that they have to give the world. Jews themselves don’t know what it is, besides the Kabbalists among them who bear the method of correction. Therefore, if the Jewish people will reveal this method to humanity, then both anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism will disappear from the world.

What Made Hitler An Anti-Semite?

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/1/19

Hitler saw that he could unite the people through anti-Semitism, and that he gained a lot of support through his anti-Semitic actions, and these were the stepping stones to Hitler’s becoming an anti-Semite.

Countries such as France, England and Poland, who were hostile to him and who he couldn’t conquer yet, agreed with him on his anti-Semitic stance, and thus he used anti-Semitism to rise above the people, unite the people, and to take the wealth of the Jews. He also publicized his actions against the Jews as much as possible, because he saw that the people agreed with and encouraged his anti-Semitic actions. Eventually, he became a true anti-Semite, even though he wasn’t one to begin with. When he started rising to power in Nazi Germany, there were even many Jews and the fathers of Zionism who supported him. In short, in terms of whether Hitler was an anti-Semite, he wasn’t one in the biological sense, where he felt a natural hatred of Jews from within. He became one as he saw that it garnered him a lot of support.

3D Heart Printed In Israel

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 4/17/19

Once again the Startup Nation delivers the breakthrough, this time in the form of the human heart. Researchers from Tel Aviv University have demonstrated how to take human tissues and use them to print a 3D living, beating heart. Within a decade, they estimate, we’ll start saying goodbye to organ transplants altogether.

I remember the world’s first heart transplant that took place in 1967 in South Africa and made waves around the world. People were shocked and baffled by the idea that their heart could be replaced with someone else’s. And it brought up all sorts of questions such as whether a heart transplant changes a person’s feelings and personality traits.

That was in the middle of the 20th century, which just goes to show how clueless and primitive we are in our thinking, when it comes to understanding the difference between the body and the higher essence of the human being.

It’s hard for us to let go of the thought that our essence is somehow connected to our body. However, our technology is ushering us into a world where all of our organs can be printed, cloned and replaced and the medical world will be largely dominated by robots and artificial intelligence instead of human doctors.

This revolution in the medical world will help us see that we are more than what our bodies are. From that point, it will be easier for us to recognize that the true essence of the human does not reside in the body.

The wisdom of Kabbalah explains that the deeper essence of the human is a spiritual spark that exists in a reality beyond time and space, and our next phase of development is about finding it. Thus, realizing that it’s not in our body is a step forward for mankind.

When we wonder about our higher purpose, we should first realize that our technological progress can only extend our toolset and improve our lives on the physical level of existence.

Kabbalists throughout the centuries have continuously worked to develop the spiritual technology that we can harness to rise to a truly higher level of existence where we’re all connected above our bodies, and realize our unique spiritual potential. This is where we discover the purpose of our life and how it’s connected to the force that guides the whole of reality. If you will, Kabbalah can teach us how to operate the spiritual printer that can print the human soul.

Beresheet, Passover And The Space Between Us

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 4/15/19

“We started something and we need to finish it. We’ll put our flag on the moon,” said SpaceIL chairman Morris Kahn in an interview after Israel’s spacecraft Beresheet failed to land on the moon and become the fourth country in the world to achieve this goal. But we do not need to wait for an astronomical achievement to transcend as a nation. This Passover can be an opportunity to exit our divisive world and enter a higher dimension of unity and harmony, cutting the abysmal space between us.

The Jewish people and the whole world watched with expectation and excitement as Israel attempted to make history. Even though the landing failed, the space mission drew us closer together for a moment. This is exactly the deepest meaning of Passover. The holiday symbolizes our exodus from Egypt—our self-destructive egoism that crashes everything around us—to the building of one people with one heart, a state of mutual solidarity where everyone finds peace and fulfillment.

Reaching that ultimate goal does not occur in a blink of an eye. It is the result of an inner process where a period of intensifying division leads to a decision to unite, followed by the discovery of a more unified state. Indeed, Passover signifies a transition from the feeling of our world—an earthly, limited state inherent to every person on this planet—to the feeling of the upper world, an eternal and balanced state.

During this holiday, a new space opens up in us. Our hearts are a vast space, and we must fill that space with connection and love. So before we connect around a space mission, we will best contribute to humanity by connecting our hearts. By doing so, we would spread such a positive connection to wider circles of humanity.

According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, the Jewish nation must set an example for all the nations, to draw them together by virtue of our connection. For the time being, we lag behind the maturity of being a united nation that we have to demonstrate. How many people really help one another unconditionally? Who feels “love your neighbor as yourself” more than a slogan?

Without working steadily on the unity between us, the human ego will trample every part of creation. The division that it will awaken will encourage us to rule over the other with great pride, creating even further separation.

Therefore, the recognition that it’s necessary to exit our egoism, and the realization that we cannot do it on our own, produce an inner outcry to the upper force of love and bestowal to come and unite us above our divisions. Such a moment of desperation is when salvation from egoism comes and we are able to exit Egypt.

We need to activate the force that lets us unite. The connection between us evokes a tremendous positive force. Nature itself works in unity, in integrality, in mutual consideration, and if we learn how to acquire those qualities, even slightly, we would discover that we could go much further than the moon: we would discover a whole new harmonious universe that would open up to us through the common unity of the Jewish people and humanity.
