Connection Is The Main Law Of Nature

943Question: To reach the land of Israel do you have to accept the condition of mutual guarantee?

Answer: The term earth refers to the spiritual foundation. The land of Israel is not Palestine or the State of Israel, but a spiritual quality in which people are in a state of mutual love.

Comment: Kabbalah explains that earth, Eretz, is a desire, and Israel are those who strive for the Creator, for the quality of bestowal.

The Torah describes that when people came to Mount Sinai, when hatred arose between them, they were given a condition: either you must unite or here will be your burial place.

My Response: Unification is the main law of nature, and we must realize it. The thing is that after the Big Bang, there was a breakage of our desire into a huge number of desires, and we must unite them.

All nature is striving to its unification only very slowly, gradually, according to its laws. We are required to unite between ourselves on our level, on the human level, i.e., on the highest level of nature.

There the problem arises: we are not aware of it, do not understand it, and do not want to implement it. But we still must complete this task either by goodwill or, as they say, by the stick, to happiness.

Mutual Guarantee For The Connection Between Us

75.01Question: People will not be able to reveal a higher power if I do not vouch for them. What is my guarantee?

Answer: In the fact that you, as an elder, as a more experienced person, take upon yourself all states, all possibilities, in order to bring them into connection with yourself and with the whole world.

We are interconnected here. This mutual guarantee comes from the integral system in which we find ourselves. That is, the entire state of the universe, the worlds, is only one, single, integral system.

And each of us acts from the point where he is in this network, like a spider that weaves a web. Each of us is a small spider on which the proper functioning of the entire network depends. I am acting from my point, you are from yours, and he is from his, and so on. If we all interact correctly, the network reaches its maximum, perfect state.

Question: This can be compared with our body, in which different organs seem to vouch for each other.

Answer: Yes. Absolutely based on the same system.

Question: In the body does this happen unconsciously, as programmed? Should we do it consciously?

Answer: We must consciously bring this faulty system to the correct state where we all mutually vouch for each other, complement each other.

Question: What is the reason that no one knows such important information? Why is it laid down so by the program?

Answer: When we are born in this world, we do not know anything about it. We have parents, educators, and teachers who teach us. We live, we exist, we develop somehow, and only then, from the age of 15 to 20, do we begin to creatively, perhaps practically, relate to the world.

The same is true here, both in private spiritual life, when a person comes to Kabbalah and begins to engage in it, and in all of humanity, which passes through thousands of years of its development.

And only in our time, from the 20th century onward, are we entering a state where we can already reveal this system, the laws by which it exists, and begin to understand how we should act in order to bring this system to complete equilibrium. And before that we were like children, we developed unconsciously.

Question: Can we say that the law of mutual guarantee is the law of the existence of a living organism?

Answer: Yes.

In The Common Network Of Connections

264.01In the wisdom of Kabbalah, we study and then reveal that all of creation, everything that exists in our world and in the world of forces around us, which we call spiritual world, is just one common network of connections.

This common, mutual, supportive, mutually complementing network of connections is called the soul. We talk only about it: how to reveal it between us, how to increase it, how to enter it with our mind and feelings, and how to control it. All this is the attainment of the soul.

In revealing this connection, we begin to discover the force of bestowal and love called the Creator. This, in principle, is all that the wisdom of Kabbalah is engaged in, and in general all that a person can do: during his life in this world to attain the Creator, to attain the soul, i.e., the network of forces in which we all exist, and through which we are completely interconnected.

Feel Responsible For Everyone

117Question: In order to feel the network of connection between us, we must be in a state of mutual guarantee. What is this feeling when I am responsible for others?

Answer: I am responsible for others means that I must fulfill my part in this network as if I am fully responsible for it.

This means that each of us from his own point, from his own node, in this network is in control of it. It is controlled through me, through you, through him, through everyone. But it is done on the basis of his specific personal point. Therefore, everyone is responsible for it, meaning, for the entire world.

Every person feels this. As he progresses to this state, he begins to feel that he is attaining this network, this soul, and it is his inner state.

At the same time, each one is responsible for gathering everyone together into one single network of connection, and for spreading the quality of bestowal and love through this network.

Question: Does it mean that I am responsible for the revelation of the Creator to other people?

Answer: Yes.

Question: What are the states that are accompanied by the feeling of the Creator?

Answer: Warm, mutual states: a feeling of eternity, perfection, mutual support, mutual care. That is, this is completely opposite to what we usually feel in our world.

Question: What if I cannot be responsible all the time?

Answer: This is attained gradually and is called the process of correcting a person.

Question: I see that other people are hurting, there are diseases and wars. Does it mean that I feel that I am responsible for this? This is scary.

Answer: Whether this is scary or not is not the question. It is about whether this is true or not. When a person begins to comprehend that the network of common connection depends on him, it means that at the same time he has the opportunity to feed it with the good force.

Mutual Guarantee—The Property Of Mutual Concern

943Question: What does the law of mutual guarantee mean? What does it mean—they vouch for each other? Why?

Answer: The fact is that at the lowest level, if we want to begin to master the spiritual property, the property of bestowal and love, we must realize it in ourselves in the form of mutual guarantee.

This happens within a group of people when they gather together and try to recreate the property of mutual care, love, mutual assistance, and with all their heart want to be one for all and all for one.

Question: And one person should examine it?

Answer: One person cannot do it. He must feel as a part of society. All this is realized in society.

Question: Does a person implement this law. but in relation to other people?

Answer: Yes.

Mutual Guarantee

264.01The need for mutual guarantee stems from the fact that we all belong to the integral Kli, to the globe. Every desire in it, even the smallest and insignificant, can become the highest and most important if you turn the ball so that this point is at the top.

It turns out that no matter how you turn the ball, one of its points will be higher than all of them. If you turn the ball a different way, then another point will be at the top. Therefore, the mutual guarantee is an immutable law, obligatory for correcting the breaking of the common soul. Then we merge into one soul.

There is no other way to make of yourself that soul which the Creator created and broke. After all, every point in this soul must be the highest and vouch for everyone.

There is nothing more important than mutual guarantee because it brings us to the likeness of the Creator.

Intervene In The Fate Of The Other

600.02Question: According to the law of mutual guarantee, it turns out that everyone can change the fate of the other, but no one can ever change their own fate. It is interesting to understand how a person can interfere in the fate of the other person? Is this a special methodology?

Answer: Yes. In fact, we are one common spiritual body and are absolutely integrated with each other. I cannot change myself, but I can influence the other, and the other can influence me. This way, in a state of mutual guarantee, we can “spoon-feed” each other.

Question: Does a person still begin with the fact that he wants to change himself?

Answer: Naturally. For this, he goes to bestow, to influence others. He has no other choice.

A World-Wide Mutual Guarantee

944Question: It is interesting that the law of mutual guarantee covers the whole world. Why is one nation not enough to achieve correction?

Answer: We are all part of the same system, and therefore, no one can escape from the law of mutual guarantee.

Question: Can I reach mutual guarantee in the ten or is it not enough?

Answer: Yes, you can reach mutual guarantee in the ten, but not an absolute one. Absolute mutual guarantee is achieved after all of humanity, being divided into tens, comes from tens, to hundreds, and so on, and turns into one single ten consisting of billions of individual tens.

Question: Do you see in the near future each country being divided into such tens?

Answer: How it will be, I do not know. I do not want to think ahead and let alone notify you about it. But I believe that the world is coming to this and will inevitably come to it.

Question: Baal HaSulam writes that everyone should contribute to creating a critical mass in order to achieve social harmony. So, a huge number of people must do it?

Answer: Yes. Everyone will agree. We are moving toward it. Nature will force us either by the path of suffering or by the path of light.

Who Breaks The Law Of Mutual Guarantee?

161Question: Baal HaSulam writes that only after society wants to achieve an integral state, becomes self-sufficient, and economically independent can people become guarantors for each other. So must everyone have the minimum necessary material first?

Answer: Definitely. This is not even a question. But the fact is that it is possible to achieve an ideal material state if at the same time we have a state of reciprocity.

Comment: Further, Baal HaSulam adds that when the society of those wishing to achieve a mutual guarantee is influenced by irresponsible, self-loving people, the provision of the necessary needs cannot be guaranteed. Even if one person still takes care of himself, everyone else will no longer be able to come to a mutual guarantee.

My Response: Naturally because integrity is violated.

Question: But how can it be that in a society where everyone cares about each other, one person stops doing this?

Answer: In principle, this is theoretically impossible, and even more so in practice. Because everyone will begin to influence each other there will simply be no place for such a person. He will not be able to remain so because under the influence of the environment he will be forced to voluntarily, consciously work for others.

Mutual Guarantee Is What Love Really Is

632.3Question: Is it right to say that mutual guarantee is a basic form of communication?

Answer: Mutual guarantee is the ultimate form of proper communication when we achieve a one-for-all and all-for-one relationship.

Comment: But you said that the final form is love.

My Response: This is when you can call it love. After all, to be connected to each other in such a way as to feel what the other person lacks and provide it for him is love.

Comment: In one of your books you wrote that the mutual guarantee frees everyone from any worries.

My Response: Mutual guarantee is necessary in order to take care of others. Everyone needs to be sure that they are being taken care of by others. Otherwise, they will have to break away from caring for others and think about themselves.

Therefore, society should be built in such a way that everyone thinks about each other. This is the reverse form of pure egoism.

Question: But still, a person must take care of himself to a necessary extent, right?

Answer: No. Why should he? He is in a society that thinks about each and everyone. And he also takes care of each and everyone, and in no way of himself.

He makes what is called a restriction (Tzimtzum) on himself: let the others think of me and I will think of others. In this state, we are completely connected to each other, included in each other, and achieve an absolutely integral state.

Question: Do you mean to say that, just as a few million years ago, nature combined cells into a complex organism, so it will force us into such an ideal state? It’s hard to imagine what you’re talking about right now. It’s not even a utopia.

Answer: This is the completely real, correct state of individual living organisms.
