New Life 307 – Eating Disorders

New Life 307 – Eating Disorders
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

The solution to eating disorders is to introduce a positive social environment in which people aspire to a higher goal. Human warmth, calmness, security, and love need to be valued more than thinness or physical appearance. To be freed from the worship of the body and the need to use food as compensation for emotions, a person needs a society that values him according to his inner life. Every problem in life can be corrected by ascending to a higher level.

New Life 306 – Social Impact

New Life 306 – Social Impact
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

All human beings live in a connected network where even thoughts move from one to another without words. We constantly check ourselves in relation to those around us with the aim of feeling more secure in society. Today, various stakeholders want to channel the masses through media, culture, books, and movies. Revolutions are being brought about deliberately through these forms of social influence. We can create a positive social impact when we connect with one another based upon the principle ”love your neighbor as yourself.”

New Life 1200 – Communication In Relationships

New Life 1200 – Communication In Relationships
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Rather than blaming, putting down, or confronting others, we need to find a way to communicate so that the other person can receive it. We always want to be right, but by conceding to an angry person, one disarms them immediately. Every fight can be stopped with a kiss. Children also need to be allowed to express all of their emotions, including anger. Accepting others as they are without wanting to change them is important. Instead, my focus should be on changing myself.

New Life 1199 – How To Approach People

New Life 1199 – How To Approach People
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

A Kabbalist is an expert in approaching people. He finds, within himself, something similar to the other person and gives them the feeling of being understood, known, and agreed with so the other can open up. A Kabbalist listens with interest, knows what the other wants to hear, and expresses joy from the relationship. A Kabbalist shows that his heart is open to receive the other.

New Life 1198 – The Israeli Bubble

New Life 1198 – The Israeli Bubble
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel

Israelis live in a bubble because we do not feel reality as it is. We are prideful and self-centered. We have a strong ego and enjoy looking down on everyone else. Nevertheless, we imagine a picture that we like in our minds and perceive ourselves differently than how others perceive us. Only troubles can get us out of this bubble, connect us, and help us realize our destiny. By nature, Jews are different in that we have a tendency for connection and love of others. We are hated because we are not showing others how to achieve correction, perfection, and connection. If we connect, we will reveal the upper force and every goodness for humanity.

New Life 1196 – Understanding Prohibitions In The Torah

New Life 1196 – Understanding Prohibitions In The Torah
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

The Torah does not pertain to this world and it is therefore impossible to understand it correctly without discovering the upper world. All of the prohibitions in the Torah are interpretations of the egoistic use of the spiritual world in the language of this world. In reality, the Torah is not restrictive or punishment-oriented. Its purpose is to transform a person to become loving like the upper force. The completion of this correction is called Shabbat, which is the final stage in human development.

New Life 1194 – Building Your Own Framework For Life

New Life 1194 – Building Your Own Framework For Life
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

In the 20th Century, it is up to each one to clarify what the purpose and essence of one’s life is and to determine one’s own framework accordingly. Everything is uncertain today. A supportive society is required in order to maintain one’s framework and keep one’s goals alive.

New Life 1195 – Law And Crime

New Life 1195 – Law And Crime
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Crime stems from the development of the human ego so that we will recognize its destructive power. The human ego derives satisfaction, fulfillment, money, respect, and control from harming others. This is the true essence of crime. We do not succeed in rehabilitating criminals because the whole society requires education regarding how to love others. Our laws depend on the egoistic values of the legislators rather than the absolute lawfulness of nature which operates according to the principle “And you shall love your friend as yourself.”

New Life 1193 – Coping With Change

New Life 1193 – Coping With Change
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

Relaxed satisfaction with life happens when we engage in what is important. We feel calm and comfortable about our desires, thoughts, plans, and even frustrations when we have the support of a positive environment. Women are better able to cope with postpartum depression when they are among supportive women and family. Becoming a father is also a major change for a man and community support helps. Sport and exercise help to relieve stress as well since it burns all types of waste in the body. Any change creates pressure that is alleviated with support from others.

New Life 1192 – Attaining Renewal Through Despair

New Life 1192 – Attaining Renewal Through Despair
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Defeat, crisis, and failure are the birthplace of spiritual renewal and development. Despair signals where one is in relation to one’s goal and can be overcome when we learn how to turn to a higher, external force for new power. Everything we have from nature is good and correct. Children can be taught how to have a correct attitude toward failure through a good example and environment. Humans are social beings and we can spiritually develop when learn how to depend on and give to others.
