All People Are Parts Of One Common System

laitman_423.03Question: If other people are like animals according to their needs and interests, why should I try to come closer to them? And how could it be that something excites me yet doesn’t interest them at all?

Answer: All other people are the same as you. They are all necessary elements of one common system. Each has his or her own part. By working on yourself, you must come closer to everyone, try and pass on the higher information to them, and give them the opportunity to connect to it.

To the extent that we connect together in the system of “love your neighbor as yourself,” we elevate our world to the next level.

I don’t think there are people, organizations, religions, or methods in the world that would object to the call to love your neighbor. After all, day by day, we increasingly understand that the world is integral, interconnected, and that we need to do something with ourselves.

If we continue to be so fragmented and torn apart, we will lead the world to disaster. Also, if we try to connect with each other in one living organism, its cells will start functioning correctly as in a single system, then in this healthy organism, we will feel the higher life and ourselves existing in the spiritual field.

What Is The Difference Between The Revealed And The Concealed Torah?

laitman_527.07Question: What is the difference between the revealed and the concealed parts of the Torah?

Answer: The concealed part of the Torah is the part that is revealed to a person when he works on his spiritual development. The Torah is completely opposite from what people think.

Question: So, is it always revealed and it only depends on us if it is concealed or revealed to us?

Answer: The Torah is the control system of the entire system of creation. It is concealed with respect to a person individually. However, to the extent in which we are able to participate in this system intelligently and productively, it is gradually revealed to us.

Question: But how is the Torah, as a system of the world’s control, connected to the book that was written 3,000 years ago? Is it the written Torah and the oral Torah?

Answer: They both describe the system we need to enter, learn about, and engage with.

Question: What is the oral Torah? It seems that there are some laws that were possible to describe on a piece of paper and there are laws that could only be passed down by word of mouth?

Answer: The oral Torah is a system of laws that was passed down from teacher to student: from Adam through 20 generations to Abraham and then through all the rest of the generations to Rabbi Shimon, the author of The Book of Zohar. Then it all became hidden. The knowledge about the world, about the individual’s work in drawing closer to the Creator is called “the Torah,” from the word “Ohr” (Light). This knowledge was gradually passed down through a small group of people in each generation. Only now, beginning with the Ari (17th century) and onward, everything began to be reborn.

The Attitude Of The Masses To Kabbalah

laitman_254.03Question: Why does merely mentioning terms of the science of Kabbalah arouse a negative reaction among people who do not study it?

Answer: The fact is that throughout the years of the existence of Kabbalah there have been so many fabrications around it that it is natural that no one is indifferent to it.

Only specific people understand Kabbalah and they are its followers. Everyone else is very cautiously and warily interested in it. They consider it something dark, bad, and dangerous.

Most importantly, religion, being based on blind faith, is also against Kabbalah. They tell me how to behave, and like a wind-up-toy, I mechanically perform the prescribed actions.

Kabbalists say: “No, you must explore this world, explore the Creator, and wish to understand and attain Him with your mind.” Attain the Creator in order to be like Him, to serve Him exactly by becoming equal to Him. This is the state we must reach.

Who Will Show Humanity The Way?

laitman_750.03Baal HaSulam, “The Writings of the Last Generation”: From the perspective of Lishma [for her name], it is an emotional need. Admittedly, they are few, as it is written, “saw that the righteous are few… and planted them in every generation,” that they may have demand from birth. However, some abhor material life. If they do not accomplish the goal of adhesion, they will commit suicide.

A meaningless life is the most terrifying prison: you were placed into it against your will and you are obliged to exist in it. Today, humanity subconsciously feels global depression, sensing the uselessness of existence.

There are two forces acting here. One of them shows you that you are nothing, living without a purpose, and the second force should show you the correct path. For the majority of humanity this path does not exist. It is written that they do not have a head, only a suffering body. We, the Kabbalists, must be the head who will show humanity that there is such a way and will become a guide—Moses, leading humanity forward.

With ever-increasing suffering, the masses will realize that they need such a guide, and Moses appears only when such a need appears in humanity. And prior to that, the Kabbalistic group, which represents the head part of humanity, is being prepared.

Question: In this preparation, an individual must constantly feel the pressure of the group, resistance to this pressure, and on the other hand, agree with it, move forward together and work with the group. Is this how it constantly needs to be?

Answer: Yes. If this does not happen, then it must be created so that it happens. The individual must close his eyes and throw himself into the group, dissolve in it, until there is nothing left.

Question: During the period of the last generation, when the majority of people begins to act to bestow to others, will this help the small group that is the head part of humanity?

Answer: Of course. The masses will push them forward. Baal HaSulam wrote that there is great collective desire in the masses, and in the few righteous, there is only the connection with the Creator.

The first group is in great in quantity; the second, in quality. Therefore, the masses represent that great egoistic part that needs to be dragged forward. And that job is given to the righteous.

What Is The Secret Of Kabbalah?

laitman_216.03Question: If today Kabbalah is open for everyone, then what is its secret?

Answer: There are no secrets in Kabbalah and never have been. The entire problem is only in society’s  possibility of correctly accepting it, adapting to it, tasting it, and using it correctly for its development. There is nothing else.

For example, it is written in The Book of Zohar that of the great Kabbalist Rabbi Shimon’s ten disciples, only Rabbi Aba could correctly expound upon it so that it would be accessible, smooth, correct, and at the same time hidden.

And the measure of concealment must be so special that when you read the Kabbalistic text, it reveals itself to you, and maybe not to your neighbor.

Susceptibility To Spirituality

laitman_214Question: Since 1995, Kabbalah has begun its disclosure to the masses. Does this mean that children born after 1995 are at a higher spiritual level than we are, and that they are more susceptible to spirituality? Or are they more egoistic, which makes it more difficult for them to correct themselves?

Answer: It does not matter what egoism they bear, whether it is bigger, smaller, or whatever kind it is. However, each forthcoming generation is more susceptible to abstract concepts than its previous one.

Lower and lower souls constantly descend into our world. But on the other hand, by working on themselves, they reach even greater peaks.

The Period Of Concealment In The History Of Kabbalah

Laitman_138Question: If Kabbalah is the method to discover the Creator, why was it concealed for two thousand years, preventing people from using it?

Answer: It was a latent period in the history of Kabbalah, like the Middle Ages.

To us, it seems like nothing happened during the Middle Ages. Development in Europe appeared to freeze, but this was not so. Experts will tell you it was a period of rapid development, but it was internal, hidden. It prepared Europe for all the subsequent progress. Without this preparation, there would have been no cultural or industrial revolution. no Renaissance, nothing.

Question: If our development were not technological, what would it be?

Answer: Our development had to be technological because it was the result of our egoistic development.

Today, this period is coming to an end. The next stage will be spiritual development. We are gradually entering it now. Our recognition of the evil of our current development will lead us to it.

Adam And His Book The Angel Raziel

Laitman_137Question: Scientists believe that in the time of Adam, writing had not yet been invented. Is there proof that the book The Angel Raziel was written by him?

Answer: The book The Angel Raziel was written by Adam in the form of tablets and was passed down from generation to generation. Over the years it has been discovered that Egyptian hieroglyphics were created from the ancient Hebrew alphabet that existed even in the days of Adam.

You can buy the book today, and on its first page it is indicated that according to tradition it was written by Adam HaRishon (the first man), meaning the first person who attained the Creator, not the first man on the face of the Earth.

Remark: As far as I know, only Kabbalists say this since religious people believe that the world began from Adam and atheists don’t believe in anything.

My Comment: Belief in the Creator appeared around 2,000 years ago and atheists appeared only recently. It is necessary to understand where everything comes from and to look at history as it has existed and operated throughout the generations.

If we open books that were written in the 11th century by Kabbalists in Europe, like Maimonides (Rambam) or Rashi, there is confirmed documentation stating that these books were theirs.

The Talmud, which was written in the fourth century, tells about its authors and was written in an understandable language, which we read and speak today. The Torah appeared 1,500 years before the Talmud. Earlier, 3,700 years ago, the Sefer Yetzira (Book of Creation) was written by Abraham in ancient Babylon, and in the year 1600 BCE the “Great Commentary” was written. This information is widely documented and certified and was passed down from generation to generation.

Remark: But there are two types of people that exist in the world, those who don’t believe in anything, and those who believe that Adam HaRishon is the same Adam HaRishon created by the Creator. But they claim that “Adam” was the first person to attain spirituality, is claimed only by the Kabbalists.

My Comment: Kabbalah counts the time of the creation of Adam differently than what is customarily accepted. The creation of Adam is the appearance of the feeling of the Creator within us, and only when we attain the next higher level of our existence can we be called Adam. Before that, we exist on the animate level.

Human beings were in the world tens of thousands of years before the birth of Adam, who also had parents and relatives, but he was the first to attain the hidden forces of nature, and since he discovered his roots, he was called “Adam,” resembling (Domeh) the Creator, because attainment of the Creator made it possible to resemble Him to a certain extent.

Question: I read Adam’s book and did not understand anything. What does the book The Angel Raziel by Adam describe?

Answer: It is necessary to learn the wisdom of Kabbalah to understand what is written in the book. This is not a simple book; its language is complicated to understand, even though we speak this language today. It does not change because it only has spiritual roots in its foundation. Also, since the spiritual forces that manage our world have not changed for thousands of years, the language and laws of its grammar remain the same.

Why Are There So Few Kabbalists In The World?

laitman_750.03Question: Why are there so few Kabbalists in the world?

Answer: To discover the upper world, a Kabbalist or two are enough, and after that a few dozen more, and others must adhere to them. Everything descends and moves downward in a pyramid.

Today, those who methodically study the wisdom of Kabbalah in our world community are enough to be ready to bring the upper Light into our world. What remains is only for the rest of the world to join us somehow.

laitman_939.02Question: In the social doctrine Baal HaSulam wrote over 70 years ago, it says that a small part of humanity must raise the moral level and create a society in which there will be one religion, a religion of bestowal. These people will disseminate it to the whole world and all the rest will be considered as culture.

Can you give a prediction about when this small society of a few thousand or some tens of thousands of people will be created?

Answer: To create a correct society that will manage itself and the others, a person must be on a spiritual level. I still don’t see people like these. They are gradually being educated today, but they are still not ready for this.

Question: So you cannot concretely name the year of the appearance of that society?

Answer: In the coming year, mentors will still not be ready, even if everyone wanted to unite.

Question: Are your students not guides who are ready to build the new society?

Answer: At the present time they are guides who are only suitable for developing new groups, conducting workshops and the like, but to create communes and societies in which we can work together, complement each other, and exist above the general egoistic rules, we still don’t have guides or a mass that can be organized in this manner for these communities.
