New Life #207 – Parental Authority

New Life #207 – Parental Authority
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

As the world is becoming integral and connected, how will we create parental authority and how will we teach our children to manage it in their lives? Parents have authority if their children see them as wise and knowledgeable regarding how to navigate today’s connected, integral world. The integral approach to educating children doesn’t preach morality but brings children to self-awareness by providing them with a positive example. Parents need to show that they are like children themselves in relation to society, nature, the world, and the higher power.

New Life #205 – The Role Of The Parent, Part 1

New Life #205 – The Role of the Parent, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

The role of the parent is to teach the child the wisdom of life, how to connect with others. Children learn best through positive example. Parents should arrange weekly family meetings in which everyone shares and strives for agreement. This creates a common feeling in the center of the family and, as a result, each family member has a sense of belonging to this small society which anchors them in life. Each child must be aware that devotion to the family is above everything else in life.

New Life 204 – Family In The New World

New Life 204 – Family in the New World
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

What are the reasons for the breakdown of human society? Is it possible to achieve constant happiness and fulfillment in our lives, and how is it possible to enjoy the family again? Building the concept of family between us depends on each and every one of the family members; all are equal in this. Each one participates in his or her part, otherwise a family would not be built. Each one gives to the whole according to his ability. The essence of the wisdom of life is in developing the ability to connect with other people. Whoever has acquired the ability to connect with others at home will succeed everywhere in gathering people around him.

New Life #203 – The Family Unit In Crisis

New Life #203 – The Family Unit in Crisis
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

The nuclear family is in turmoil and often breaks up. Despite what children need, it is very difficult to maintain a family for long these days. Parents, children, and siblings are all increasingly detached and isolated. At the end of thousands of years we have reached the point where we want to be alone. But what did we gain from it? I have everything of my own, but I’m unhappy. A new space is revealed. With the help of integral education, we can stop the trend of deterioration and build a new family.

New Life #192 – The Foundation Of Education In Jewish Culture, Part 2

New Life #192 – The Foundation of Education in Jewish Culture, Part 2
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

Building an environment that will support the values toward which we want our children to be drawn is of primary importance. When a person learns alone, his ego educates him. When we learn in a small group, we become like one, strong, intelligent, sensitive, inclusive network of consideration and love. Integral education in a group imparts global wisdom, the wisdom of connection. The goal of this type of education is to bring each person to feel that the whole world belongs to him so that he will relate to the world as he does to himself. All children will be as one but the uniqueness of each child will be maintained. This produces tremendous wealth. The child will always succeed, knowing who he is, what he is about, and why he is alive. The map of life will be opened before him.

New Life #191 – The Foundation Of Education In Jewish Culture, Part 1

New Life #191 – The Foundation of Education in Jewish Culture, Part 1
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

Education is the only means for transforming us into complete people. The entire Torah is education: It is about how a person must relate to himself, to the still, the vegetative, the animate and to the human. The image of a perfected person toward which education aims precedes the religious or secular form. This is the source. The Torah requires of us to love everything outside of us. It is impossible to achieve such love without education because our nature is its opposite. Education is only by example, not by suppression. Teach and be an example, because words in and of themselves do not help.

New Life #190 – Returning To The Garden Of Eden

New Life #190 – Returning to the Garden of Eden
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

The beginning of creation in the Garden of Eden is a harmonious system of connected parts, which lack freedom of choice. Creation develops from two imbalanced forces, plus and minus, which are opposites and connect with each other. These forces develop through six stages until humanity becomes the “proprietor of the Garden of Eden.” Today, we have reached a dead end since we cannot fill ourselves no matter what we do. We need to realize that we lack the positive force that will balance the negative force. This positive force can be found through communication with each other, in the connection between us. If we devote ourselves to locating and developing this force, we will return to the Garden of Eden, paradise, and acquire infinite fulfillment.

New Life #189 – Song Of Songs

New Life #189 – Song of Songs
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

The Song of Songs is full of emotions and has always symbolized love; it guides us to build new and better relationship between us. King Solomon, the wisest of men, wrote the Song of Songs in recognition of the universal system of nature. The poems were written to a person who already feels that all of nature and life is love. Love “covers all crimes” by doing good to others, which results in perfect beauty. Love grows from the love of people, to love of the whole world, and love of the Creator. With real love, I can live among others and become unlimited.

New Life #188 – Job, The Story Of Human Suffering

New Life #188 – Job, The Story of Human Suffering
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary:

What choice do we have that enables us to control our destiny and how does it relate to the construction of harmonious relationships of connection and trust between us? We all think like Job: “All in all, I’m a good person so why do I get beaten up?” We want to escape personal responsibility, but everyone must fulfill their role in the world’s development. The story of Job teaches that any evil that is revealed indicates a lack of human connection. General and individual blows are invitations to balance everything in perfect harmony and mutual trust. The reins are in our hands. When we learn to run the world, the blows will stop and we will have all the good.
