#Coronavirus is not a blow but a push toward our growth to facilitate our #development, to bring us together through unity—to perception of the upper force of nature. We have to be connected to it. This has nothing to do with religion. Only then will our life get better.

My Thoughts On Twitter 9/23/20

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Nature (the Creator) wishes to show us that until we learn to treat each other right, we must be practically isolated from one another. And it doesn’t matter whether we’re attending a prayer or a protest. Our good attitude will lift the quarantine!

Today we will try to start building a Partzuf: to create out of our individual ego something common, to mold a soul. We need only to soak clay in water (Hassadim), then everything will unite into one body of the 10 Sefirot, and from it we’ll be able to make common actions for the sake of the Creator.

A teacher teaches HOW to think, not WHAT to think. He teaches how to be independent from others and from oneself, pointing only toward the goal: the Creator’s revelation.

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

Man is always inside the Creator, as an embryo is inside the mother.
One just needs to feel WHAT the Creator “is telling him”—this is the highest state!

If we grow up, nature won’t have to punish us. We would participate in our own development, would be fully responsible for each other, and we would find a true goal in mutual guarantee. The essence of man is not to be free from nature, but to consciously align with it.

As a result of the impact of the coronavirus, we will inevitably start thinking of our interdependence and begin realizing our mutual responsibility.
Baal HaSulam: “Nature, as a competent judge, punishes us taking into account our development.”

How to protect them? The virus reminds us that we’re completely dependent. It carries information that allows the biosphere to maintain systemic balance. When we don’t create the right connection between us, the virus does so on a biological level—forcing us to care about others.

Suddenly I fell into a dangerous dependence on other people. True, they depend on me too, but that doesn’t make it any easier on me. And if others are not conscious not to infect me, I will get infected from them, it’s almost impossible to protect oneself from it. And all my loved ones are also in danger.

Currently, disseminating the method of correction of man and all of mankind may seem to us a heavy burden. But as we advance, we’ll understand that this is what gives pleasure to the Creator, and if we feel Him as great, then we will gladly bear this burden and feel no heaviness.

Lesson after lesson, gathering after gathering, we will feel more and more that there are a vast number of people, humanity, that our group has to lead. Like a locomotive that pulls the whole train of many cars to the goal.

We are given a chance to become Adam, similar to the Creator, and pull all of humanity towards correction. This is our work, thus we are called servants of the Creator. This is a very high privilege, a special and honorable mission. If a person neglects it, he gets replaced…

On the eve of Rosh Hashanah (New year), I would like to wish everyone what we lack the most—connection, closeness between us, love. This always saves our people, it is in the codex, in the record, in the chromosomes of the nation itself.

There is no sense of the Creator, no faith, so no one to stop me. I cannot act differently because if the Creator does not rule over me, then I’m under the control of the evil inclination—egoism! Thus, I ask the Creator to rule over me. This is my main request!

“Let me feel You and I will change!” This is exactly what one should say to the Creator, this is the right request and true remorse. For what was the reason I committed the crime? Because there was no sense of the Creator called Faith.

Did I do anything? I didn’t do anything, it was all the Creator. And He did it on purpose, so that I would know what I need to correct. I take this evil, the crime that has now been revealed, and begin to correct it. My whole aspiration is forward, not backward…

We don’t bring up the past or apologize for it. I must realize not what happened earlier, but the fact that I do not seek correction now, nor demand the Creator’s help in this. I want to move forward, not dig into the past, shedding tears about what I did…

“Let me feel You and I will change!”—this is what one should say to the Creator, this is the right request and remorse. I commit crimes because there is no sense of the Creator, no faith, and no one to stop me. I cannot act differently because if the Creator does not rule, then it’s the evil inclination!

Rosh Hashanah (New year)—time to ask the Creator for forgiveness for our sins. I feel that I do not have a sense of importance or greatness of the Creator, for this I repent. After all, if I felt the Creator as great and important I would have behaved differently. My only lack is the feeling of the Creator…

People, and the whole world, do not understand how the upper governance of nature (the Creator) transitions us to a new mode of relations through quarantine, by restructuring of society, production, trade, through limiting (normalizing) consumption in balance with nature…

My Thoughts On Twitter 9/21/20

Dr Michael Laitman Twitter

The correction of the creation, the soul of Adam, is in the unity of the creatures, mutual guarantee, in the realization of the commandment “Love your neighbor” and beyond, from the love of the creatures to the love of the Creator, the goal of our development. This is how we come to the goal of creation—in similarity of qualities of the Creator, love, and adhesion with Him.

Our transgression is neglecting the desire for connection with others, and not turning to the Creator for help with this. The purpose of creation is only to unite the creatures in a single desire to unite in the Creator. From individual tens to a single ten that includes all of humanity. This is the extent of our connection to the Creator!

In this New Year, a new state of reality is revealed. After 5,780 years of development, humanity is able to rise to the first spiritual degree. The first tens are opening the door and entering, pulling the whole world with them. Let’s be prepared with the weight of responsibility confidence, and mutual guarantee.

This New Year differs from all the previous ones in that the Creator begins to clearly treat the world as a whole. And we need to treat Him the same way, turning to the Creator as the whole world, pulling the whole world to this goal set for us by the Creator.

“The coronavirus outbreak is getting out of control,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis unlike any other.
This is true: we have entered a period of correction of humanity through good or evil. The method of correction is Kabbalah. Better not to delay!

But what must I build? From what to distance and to what to draw closer? That is why the new year is preceded by the period of Selichot (repentances) in which I scrutinize my egoistic qualities. I want to go from reception to bestowal, from an animal mind to faith above reason, the Creator’s mind.

The #Coronavirus pandemic must make us feel that our troubles are a result of our enmity. We must tie together the physical and emotional states. Our distance and inability to feel one another emotionally and how wonderful it is to be unified is the cause of all our misfortunes.

The problem stems from the upper degree, where we are bonded together, so as to show us that we must unite.
If we draw closer together, the pandemic will lessen. If we fall back into the ego, the pandemic will return. Thus the Creator will teach us to strive toward the connection between us and Him.

The virus doesn’t destroy, but as it captures the globe, it paralyzes our life, and in so doing, draws all the attention to itself. It stems from a spiritual degree, from the end program of our common correction. That is what makes it special and why it casts everyone in dismay.

Scientists cannot offer a solution to the Coronavirus, we ought not rely on a vaccine. This pandemic isn’t like the previous localized ones: those weren’t aimed at correcting the last generation, stemming from the general force (Mashiach).
Today, it is working on all of humanity for the first time!

The spiritual world isn’t found in three dimensional coordinates. It has no axes, but is like a sphere. By awakening a single cell, we activate, animate all creation. Then we will see that all of the universe’s endless spaces, all the galaxies amount to nothing as we will enter completely different dimensions.

The most vibrant combinations and delicate aromas, all of the beauty of scrutinies is achieved by adding additional tens. As in our world, there is a foundation that is essential, but beauty is achieved thanks to additions and spices that add flavor, aroma, color.

The Creator’s revelations happens both on a quantitative, as well as qualitative levels. The power of the revelation is determined by our success in expanding our Kli, adding more tens to it. The quality of the revelation grows as well; the main Kli is clothed with additional ones, adding partials to the essential note.

To the extent that we unite in the ten, we will begin to feel the necessity of attaching to ourselves more and more tens, expanding the boundaries of our unity, because this is the only way we can draw ever closer to the Creator.

The ego (Pharaoh) has developed so much that its authority is turning from pleasant to unbearable, and is thus forcing us to seek a way to escape it.

Even Darwin asserted that it’s not the strongest that survives, but the more adapted. Human history teaches that it’s not the strongest that survive, but those who are friendlier, who do not rule over others. This is true at all degrees of nature and throughout all human history. Cooperation trumps force.

When I have faith above reason, the force of bestowal, I enter it and start to gradually build myself. This is called spirituality: the degree of Bina above the degree of Malchut, when we want to think, feel, understand, and see everything according to the following degree above myself.

All degrees, all states already exist in reality. We have to make efforts in order to enter them. I lead myself to the degree of faith, Bina—and those who are outside of me, the group and the Creator, are more important than myself. I see, feel, and hear what happens in the friends, and not inside of me. This is already a spiritual sensation.

Above reason is to act in the will to bestow, for the sake of unity, according to spiritual definitions. In the material world each person exists on his own—there is no unity, since each one looks out for himself. But through unity and mutual bestowal, I feel reality and through it I look at the whole world.

I want to see everyone with different eyes: not my own, but the eyes of the ten. And the same for sensation, in the heart and mind—in everything I strive to attain the collective perception, in order to see the world not as one person, but as a ten. A ten is a spiritual structure in which the spiritual state is revealed

We have to realize the reason for the coronavirus. If we understand how to transform our interpersonal relationships—all the problems will disappear instantly! Nature’s goal isn’t to lead us through illness and heal us, but for the suffering and viruses to compel us to reveal our bad relationships.

Every day it becomes more and more clear: we have to realize that there is one common enemy—our egoism. We cannot destroy it, but we can rise above it together. The United States shows: society is incapable of regulating itself.
We can still reach an intelligent cooperation, or there’ll be war…

Above all human conspiracy theories and other ploys, in any case, there is the Creator’s plan, which determines our path. We wallow in our thoughts and do not wish to rise to the Creator’s degree, by faith above reason. Everyone stumbles in this place, but he who walks forward enters the Creator’s world.

We do not hear nature’s warnings: that we have to be integral, connected by goodness, and treat each other well. Otherwise with our behavior we determine nature’s behavior and do not allow it to enter balance; hence, we suffer together with all of nature.

The coronavirus is a small blow, coming from love and mercy for people who do not understand the purpose of their life. We have to realize why we have reached blows such as this. Why don’t we hear the first warning of the parent, like good children, in order to change our behavior and live well…?

The situation could have been much worse than the coronavirus epidemic. But the Creator did not use harsher methods. It’s because nature has a goal—to bring all of us to the proper connection. We are living in a time when unity between everyone has to be clearly implemented.

Every illness contains healing, the illness cures. We have to see where the #coronavirus is leading us, and reach this healthy state on our own. For that we have to understand the blow. There is a force behind it that does not wish to simply hurt us, but wishes to cure us.

The virus strikes us on the biological level, affecting society and families. We must therefore understand why nature is treating us this way, and what we can do so we don’t hide from this phenomenon, but get cured.

Before the coronavirus the world was in crisis and people spoke of a world war or ecological catastrophes. The situation was very problematic, there were many problems, like with a person who doesn’t know what illness he has, but manages to inject painkillers for the pain and to somehow keep living.

It’s still early to speak of the future if we do not know the present time, which is not joyful, but constantly brings new restrictions and blows. If we could understand them, we would see the light at the end of the tunnel.
But for now we do not see that things will get brighter. We do not even understand the darkness in which we find ourselves.

One thing becomes clear with each passing day: we must recognize that our one common enemy is our ego. It cannot be destroyed, but we can jointly rise above it. America proves that society is incapable of regulating itself. We can still come to mindful cooperation; the other alternative is war.

Democracy untethered from liberalism turns into dictatorship. Everything stems from disillusionment that the Internet and social media haven’t become a means of enlightenment. The majority think that the government is built on degradation and must therefore be destroyed. The elections produce a doubting elite class.

Just as it happens in any system (organism or machine), the defects accumulate until they manifest as a malfunction. Likewise in society with the coronavirus, the integral dependence of life is manifested.

We must realize that the reason for all our troubles is that society is fragmented by egoism!

The blows of the coronavirus on all facets of life are showing us that we have entered a new period of development, when nature no longer treats us as children, but as adults—and punishes us, showing that change for the better depends on the degree of proper relationships between people.

Three kinds of forces of reception that are revealed in our world are three degrees: still, vegetative, and animate. The human being is the transitionary degree to the upper world, to its still, vegetative, and animate degrees. Onward, Adam, the human being of the upper world—is already the state of adhesion with the Creator.

Even though I’m only one Sefira in the ten, when I calibrate myself toward the other 9, I come to realize what’s required of me. Like tuning a guitar, I check each string relative to the rest. In the same way, I tune myself relative to the group.
Otherwise, my state is never going to change…

The ten and the world group protect the person inside it. That is why in Kabbalah the 10 Sefirot are called Blima (consuming). That is, consuming all external influences. And the Creator evokes such influences upon us that, by the good path or the bad, we will come to the necessity of finding shelter in the ten!
