New Life #129 – Language And Spirituality

New Life #129 – Language and Spirituality
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Today’s economic crisis is a crisis in communication. In the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels of nature, everything develops through complementary communication. Only humans advance against nature by harming and exploiting without taking others into account. We study communication in science, wisdom, philosophy, and religion, trying to understand reality. We attempt to understand the language of nature through music, poetry, dance, and masks as well as through ecology, storms, international trade, economics, law, and war. Nevertheless, human language evolves according to the needs of people and has become narrow and egoistic since man has lost communication with nature and understands what is happening to him less and less. Egoism disrupts everything by cutting connections with family, work, and country. The languages were created in order to bridge the distance between people and complete the internal connection that was severed. We must learn to communicate properly if we are to get out of modern Babylon. In repairing the communication between us, we will enter into a dialogue with the generality of nature and ascend to the peak of human development.

New Life #128 – Communication And The Sensory System

New Life #128 – Communication and the Sensory System
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Today there is a transition from linear communication to whole, round, integral, and global communication. We are in a new evolutionary phase: the transition from subjective, animate, or individual desire and perception, based on our five senses, to mutual and integral desire and perception. The economic mode of communication that has driven the process of human development so far is collapsing. A person dies without a connection to the natural environment. People feel empty and lonely and turn to drug abuse as a result of the despair they experience within this system. We are in the process of developing a new perceptual sense and a common system. The communication between us is being upgraded, expanded, and perfected, not by force and control, but by developing a satisfying, emotional feeling that the whole world is connected and is mine. Communication is the basis for the feeling of our existence. A new culture will develop out of the feeling that we are one.

New Life #127 – The Essence Of Communication, Part 2

New Life #127 – The Essence of Communication, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

All of our problems stem from the wrong type of communication between us as couples, in families, at work, and in the world at large. Communicating with others in mutual bestowal reveals enormous energy and a whole new world in the resulting connection between us. Each of us has to implement all of our skills in order to satisfy the deficiencies of others so that we reach absolute and correct communication and fulfillment both individually and collectively. The more distant we are and still manage to fully communicate, the greater the pleasure we feel. In fact, oppositeness is the precondition for communication and there is no opportunity for communication between similar parties. Just as a mother treats her baby, we need to have a new intention to feel the deficiencies of others as they actually are and fill them. We can only achieve this goal in an environment with others who are aiming toward the same thing. By acquiring and satisfying the desires of others in this way, above our differences, we feel great pleasure and become one again.

New Life #126 – The Essence Of Communication, Part 1

New Life #126 – The Essence of Communication, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

Communication is the essence of life and we feel dead without it. The levels of still, vegetative, animate, and speaking in nature all search for connection based on egoistic self-fulfillment, according to the formula of “for my own sake.” The connection is stronger between greater opposites and this contact has developed life ever since the Big Bang. Evolution is driving us to a new phase in the connection between us. It’s requiring us to find a complementary, two-way system of connection as in a stereo system. By nullifying the intention of “for my own sake” and developing the intention of “for the sake of others,” we are able to feel others as ourselves and acquire a new, whole method of communication The attempt to connect with others in this way reveals the oppositeness between us and we gradually discover that nature is like one big, whole ball an analog system. A new level of life is revealed by this two-way communication; a world of infinite information and emotion.

New Life #125 – Managing The Process Of Integration In The Workplace

New Life #125 – Managing the Process of Integration in the Workplace
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Introducing the integral approach to the workplace should be like automatic transmission: natural, soft, and gentle. No change can be made unless people are ready for it internally. More people are recognizing that humanity is undergoing a very special transformation as the global crises and bankruptcies continue. The integral approach will be presented as a means of healing efficiencies, profits, and human relationships. The safe, warm, and bright future picture that will be presented is one based on cooperation, equality, mutual support, and complementation. It is best to begin this integral education with managers and then gradually advance to the lower positions once staff start to feel uncomfortable with the differences between them. Organizations will need representatives who offer close and continuous guidance toward spiritual connection because the ego never goes on holiday. As staff feel a pleasant sense of harmony without pressures and conflicts, they will share lunches during break times, enjoy special treats, and eventually even plan fun family days.

New Life #124 – Management And Leadership In The Workplace, Part 2

New Life #124 – Management and Leadership in the Workplace, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

A manager using the integral approach will know how to turn his organization into a family, not just as a slogan, but in practice. It is a unique approach since the manager is continuously guiding the organization by working with the ego and not suppressing it. The manager conducts workshops for teams of directors who will discuss how a lack of connection is at the root of all the problems and this manager demonstrates how to connect above hatred. He establishes a good atmosphere that gently improves everyone and in which the directors feel emotionally impressed. A common mind is the outcome of working against our ego and ascending above the distance between us. An organization that changes to integrality accelerates the pace of its development. Establishing a good connection guarantees our success in terms of progress, innovation, and mobility.

New Life #123 – Management And Leadership In The Workplace, Part 1

New Life #123 – Management and Leadership in the Workplace, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

The integral manager is a social leader who has a delicate soul and worries about his people like a caring father. This type of manager treats all his people equally and helps them connect through different activities and by organizing a positive environment. He will motivate others by establishing a heartfelt attitude toward his workers. He will lead by setting an example and will have to break himself more than anyone else during the process of integral education. This leader will know how to merge feeling and mind as well as social and hierarchical relationships. In other words, he will know how to create a ball out of lines and circles. He will use integral education to develop creativity and constant improvement.

New Life #122 – The Meaning Of Work In Our Lives

New Life #122 – The Meaning Of Work In Our Lives
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Imagine jumping out of bed with joy in the morning because you can’t wait to get to work. Imagine waking up to music sent from work, being greeted with care and concern by your colleagues and being offered coffee and cake upon arrival at your workplace. Imagine singing together at work, like children who are enjoying a game. A new and vast world of business based on integral education exists. With this new approach, based on mutual warmth and support, integrated and conscious managers will provide workshops for staff and teach them about the destructive human ego and the benefits of connection. Managers will specialize in making the connection between good communication and good productivity. Bonuses will be given on this basis. The uniqueness and personal realization of each employee will come to fruition in the connection among colleagues who will become more like friends. True confidence can only be obtained from this type of connection. When everyone is included in conscious development through work in circles or groups, the power and potential is infinite.

New Life #1069 – Spiritual Charisma

New Life #1069 – Spiritual Charisma
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Spiritual charisma is demonstrated when I make myself a zero in order to benefit others and the Creator. The greater a person is, the more he wants to nullify his egoistic charisma and serve others. The wisdom of Kabbalah teaches a person how to use the power of the ego as the left line and build the spiritual self above it. A truly charismatic person evokes feelings of fullness, transcendence, pride, importance, and confidence in others. This type of person can be found anywhere, in any situation, without limit. In the future society, each person will realize himself for the good of others, giving the Creator a place to be revealed.

New Life #1068 – Becoming Fully Human Through Social Connection

New Life #1068 – Becoming Fully Human Through Social Connection
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

We cannot become fully human without social connection. Interaction with society gives us an additional power to develop and can turn us into living spiritual beings. This is because the person in front of you is like a mirror in which you can measure yourself and your latent spiritual potential. Correct internal communication with another opens up spiritual senses in a person and reveals higher worlds. By adhering to the principle: “and you shall love your friend as yourself,” you learn to love others as they are. By transferring the command center to another person, feeling his desires, and trying to fulfill those desires as my own, I begin to feel the Creator Himself.
